Fame | DVD | (22/09/2003)
from £2.39 | Saving you £10.00 (71.50%) | RRP
This early effort by director Alan Parker is lively but jagged as it follows four students through their years in the New York City High School for the Performing Arts. Rather predictably, the kids fall into four clearly defined stereotypes: brazen, gay and hypersensitive, prickly, shy. Fame makes up for a disjointed presentation with a lot of heart and a great soundtrack (for which it won two Academy Awards). The hopes and disappointments, failures and successes of these teens are fodder for emotional scenes and exuberant dancing in the streets. It also turned out to be the first of many imitators and spawned a popular television series. (It was the breakout film for the short-lived feature-film career of Irene Cara, who sang the title song.) --Rochelle O'Gorman

Dog Soldiers | DVD | (17/02/2003)
from £5.02 | Saving you £12.97 (72.10%) | RRP
An enjoyable low-concept monster movie, Dog Soldiers is basically Night of the Living Dead with werewolves. A platoon on a training exercise in Scotland, already fed up because they are missing a vital England-Germany match, come across the wounded survivor of a special ops team (Liam Cunningham) that has been attacked by monsters. There's a confused conspiracy angle, with a scheme to sacrifice the squaddies in order to capture a werewolf for military uses, but it's mostly a lost patrol picture with the soldiers besieged in a mysteriously abandoned house in the woods, complete with "pork" stew on the boil. The hardman sergeant (Sean Pertwee) is disembowelled early but gruesomely patched up with superglue, letting the sensitive Scot (Kevin McKidd) play hero. A pack of effectively glimpsed Howling-style bipedal werewolves make repeated attacks on the house, whittling the cast down with each invasion. The soldier characterisations are solid cliché, albeit of a British variety rarely seen in horror movies (a highlight of the use of Brit slang is the Geordie shouting "Come on if you think you're hard enough"). The monsters are okay, but writer-director Neil Marshall's strongest suit is his third, as editor, covering for the old-fashioned monster suit effects and making the suspense and action mechanics work. On the DVD: Dog Soldiers is an excellent DVD package complete with two commentary tracks, a British one with Marshall and the cast and an American one with a couple of producers. Both are interesting and rarely overlap, and there's an amusing contradiction between the Brits who rush over script changes they didn't want to make and the Yanks who imposed a sub-plot they feel saved the picture. Also, a bunch of trailers that amusingly spoof a recent army recruitment ad, deleted scenes and outtakes with optional Marshall commentary, a standard making-of featurette, storyboards and Marshall's short film, Combat. --Kim Newman

Der Todesking Limited Edition | DVD | (26/02/2018)
from £24.99 | Saving you £N/A (N/A%) | RRP
The second feature film from German provocateur JÃ¶rg Buttgereit, director of Nekromantik and Nekromantik 2, Der Todesking (The King of Death) presents seven suicides across seven days of the week. As a chain letter from the self-proclaimed Brotherhood of the 7th Day circulates encouraging its recipients to end their lives, a series of grim murder-suicides unfold. In one vignette, a young woman massacres a room of concert-goers before turning the gun on herself; in another, a man, driven to madness by some unspecified mental disturbance, repeatedly slams his head into a wall before collapsing in a pool of his own blood These are just some of depictions of death and despair that make up the tortured fabric of Der Todesking. Regarded by many as director JÃ¶rg Buttgereit's most accomplished work, Der Todesking is an existential masterpiece - a powerfully haunting howl of rage from one of the genre's most underrated filmmakers. 3-DISC DIRECTOR-APPROVED LIMITED EDITION CONTENTS Director's approved HD transfer from the original 16mm negative High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) and Standard Definition DVD presentations Original Stereo Audio (uncompressed PCM on the Blu-ray) Optional English subtitles Limited edition packaging featuring new artwork by Gilles Vranckx Limited edition certificate featuring original artwork Replica Brotherhood of the 7th Day Chain Letter Der Todesking Soundtrack CD Limited Edition 60-page book DISC 1 [BLU-RAY] & DISC 2 [DVD] ?DER TODESKING' Audio commentary by JÃ¶rg Buttgereit and co-writer Franz Rodenkirchen From Bundy to LautrÃ©amont - JÃ¶rg Buttgereit in conversation with journalist Graham Rae at the 2016 Manchester Festival of Fantastic Films The Making of Der Todesking - vintage production featurette Footage from the original 1990 Berlin premiere Corpse Fucking Art - 1992 documentary bringing together the making of featurettes of Nekromantik, Der Todesking and Nekromantik 2 Der Gollob (1983, 25 mins) - short film by JÃ¶rg Buttgereit, newly transferred in HD and viewable with optional director's audio commentary Two short films by producer Manfred O.

To The Devil A Daughter (Doubleplay) | Blu Ray | (29/01/2018)
from £13.30 | Saving you £N/A (N/A%) | RRP
Hammer's To the Devil a Daughter was the last film made by the once great studio. Clearly ailing, Hammer again adapted a novel by Dennis Wheatley, the author behind one of their greatest successes, The Devil Rides Out (1967). Unfortunately for the studio, films such as Rosemary's Baby (1968) and The Exorcist (1973) had, in the intervening decade, radically changed horror cinema. With American star Richard Widmark echoing Gregory Peck's role in the far more polished The Omen (1976), the film seemed, rather than setting the pace as Hammer once had, to be very much jumping on the 1970's occult band-wagon. Christopher Lee is the satanic ex-communicated priest whose coven plan to incarnate the ancient demon Ashteroth, while a supernaturally beautiful Nastassja Kinski demonstrates the same willingness to disrobe as in Cat People (1982). Even so, this lacklustre, misogynistic film couldn't compete with Carrie and Suspiria (both also 1976) and Hammer thereafter concentrated on TV productions. Surprisingly, director Peter Sykes' next film, Jesus (1979), as well as being the most seen and internationally distributed film ever (with an audience of over two billion by 2000), is also the most faithful portrayal of Christ yet committed to celluloid. --Gary S. Dalkin

Tag (2015) Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) edition | Blu Ray | (20/11/2017)
from £12.89 | Saving you £N/A (N/A%) | RRP
Eureka Entertainment to release TAG, a dreamlike, mind-melting blend of action and fantasy from Japanese cult director Sion Sono, for the first time in the UK in a Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) edition on 20 November 2017. Japanese auteur Sion Sono follows up the deliriously entertaining Tokyo Tribe, with Tag, a surreal horror that combines his arthouse aesthetics with equal doses of pro-feminist action fantasy, and the kind of ultra-gory exploitation filmmaking that would make Takashi Miike and Yoshihiro Nishimura proud. Mitsuko (Reina Triendl) is the sole survivor of a bizarre paranormal incident that kills all of her classmates. Running for her life, Mitsuko seemingly slips into an alternate reality, but death and chaos seems to follow her everywhere. As Mitsuko finds herself in increasingly surreal and violent situations, the true horror behind her nightmare is revealed. With a jaw-dropping opening sequence reminiscent of Sono's earlier cult masterpiece, Suicide Club, Tag is a mind-bending slice of action-horror, Alice in Wonderland meets Tokyo Gore Police, and Eureka Entertainment is proud to present the film on Blu-ray and DVD.

The Thing | DVD | (06/09/2010)
from £5.10 | Saving you £4.89 (48.90%) | RRP
John Carpenter's apocalyptic The Thing was released in cinemas just two weeks after E.T. in 1982. The two movies could hardly have presented more contrasting ideas about extra-terrestrial life, and it was Carpenter's uncompromisingly bleak vision that lost out at the box-office. But his audacious remake of the Howard Hawks 1951 B-movie The Thing from Another World has since been acknowledged as a classic in its own right, not only for its pioneering makeup and special effects techniques, but also for its bold treatment of an alien "infection" that eerily foreshadow s AIDS-inspired blood contamination scares. Whizzkid Rob Bottin was responsible for the surreal and stomach-churning make-up effects that are so crucial a part of the film's success--without his utterly convincing creations Carpenter would never have been able to make a monster movie without a "man in a suit"--and filming on a glacier in British Columbia ensured the complete authenticity of the Antarctic setting. Kurt Russell leads a strong all-male cast who powerfully convey their isolation and distrust of one another--in more ways than one this is a film about alienation. The uneasy atmosphere is enhanced by an icily monochrome score from Ennio Morricone, as a series of unforgettable horror set-pieces lead to a wonderfully downbeat finale. On the DVD:: The bonus features are exemplary, notably the excellent 80-minute documentary, "Terror Takes Shape", which covers all aspects of the production; and the relaxed, friendly, informative commentary by director John Carpenter and star Kurt Russell--a model for how all commentaries should be. There's also an outtakes reel with some tantalising stills of unused footage. Text and stills-based montages illustrate the location design, conceptual artwork and various other aspects of the production. The sound mix is Dolby 5.1, although the non-anamorphic widescreen picture is not all it could be. --Mark Walker
