Rating: 4/4 -- Singlehandedly, William H. Macy turns "Panic" into a slimmed-down "American Beauty" - a passive man lashing out to break a cycle of dissatisfaction and familial strife for happiness, however fleeting. Full Review

Rating: B -- Panic is the kind of movie that reminds you of other movies, then turns that familiarity into an asset. Full Review

A gently subversive outing full of nicely limned characters.
Jun 6, 2008
Rating: A- -- An unjustly abandoned film, one that should be seen immediately on the outside chance that it makes a stop in your town. It probably won't stay there long. Full Review

Rating: 3.5/5 -- Stylish and assured, but it's finally too studied to get the kind of emotional heft it's looking for from its effects. Full Review

Radiates quiet and calm, while simmering with tension both comic and tragic.

Rating: A- -- It's less the plot than the texture that makes the film such an engaging surprise.

Description by

The "Alpha Video Rewind Series" is an ever-growing collection of specially-selected films from our vast library on DVD, now in collectible retro-style packaging inspired by VHS cover art from that format's heyday!

While seeking a life-saving vaccine, a scientist at a large chemical consortium inadvertently infects himself with a volatile virus that turns him into a horribly disfigured monster. Now cursed with a homicidal hunger for blood, the creature commits vicious murders - mostly of nubile young females who had no time for him before his mutation - creating panic on the streets of London. His former employers, wishing to cover up their involvement in this rampage of terror, call in Captain Kirk, a government agent who considers risk to be his business. Kirk's mission is to bring the creature in dead or alive, but he has a deadline. The government will wipe out London with a nuke at midnight if the disease-spreading monster can't be contained!
