Beyond the Darkness | Blu Ray | (13/02/2017)
from £10.99 | Saving you £N/A (N/A%) | RRP
God bless the late, and dearly missed, Joe D'Amato (Aristide Massaccesi). Not only did the censor-baiting Svengali of sleaze give us such video nasty masterpieces as ABSURD (1981) and ANTHROPOPHAGOUS (1980), as well as the sexploitation classic ELEVEN DAYS, ELEVEN NIGHTS (1987), he also unleashed one of Euro-horror's grisliest gore-fests in 1979's frequently-censored BEYOND THE DARKNESS! Focusing on a PSYCHO-style story of a young loner, under the authority of a besotted but blood-thirsty matriarch, who enjoys bouts of human taxidermy, bodily mutilation and cannibalism - this crimson-ridden splatter caper might just be D'Amato's crowning achievement. Starring the legendary Cinzea Monreale (THE BEYOND) as a beautiful blonde who is lured into the killer's premises, BEYOND THE DARKNESS also features a sublime score from prog-rockers Goblin (TENEBRAE) and a sick, but nonetheless satisfying, sense of humour. Also known as BURIED ALIVE, this D'Amato classic is finally making its UK HD premiere - uncut and uncensored!

Diary of a Lost Girl | DVD | (21/05/2007)
from £10.34 | Saving you £5.65 (35.30%) | RRP
A masterwork of the German Silent Cinema whose reputation has only increased over time Diary of a Lost Girl (Tagebuch einer Verlorenen) traces the journey of a young woman from the pit of despair to the moment of personal awakening. Directed with virtuoso flair by the great G. W. Pabst Diary of a Lost Girl represents the final pairing of the filmmaker with screen icon Louise Brooks mere months after their first collaboration in the now-legendary Pandora's Box. Brooks plays Thymiane Henning an unprepossessing young woman seduced by an unscrupulous and mercenary character employed at her father's pharmacy (played with gusto by Fritz Rasp the degenerate villain of such Fritz Lang classics as Metropolis Spione and Frau im mond). After Thymiane gives birth to the child and subsequently rejects her familys expectations for marriage the baby is stripped from her care and Thymiane is relegated to a purgatorial reform school that functions less as an educational institution and more like a conduit for fulfilling the headmistress's sadistic libidinal fantasies. When Thymiane at last manages to escape and learn the fate of her child she despondently enters a brothel - where she nonetheless flourishes emotionally and sexually and life begins anew.
The Third Man | DVD | (14/01/2002)
from £11.34 | Saving you £5.25 (27.60%) | RRP
The fractured Europe post-World War II is perfectly captured in Carol Reed's masterpiece thriller, set in a Vienna still shell-shocked from battle. Holly Martins (Joseph Cotten) is an alcoholic pulp writer come to visit his old friend Harry Lime (Orson Welles). But when Cotton first arrives in Vienna, Lime's funeral is under way. From Lime's girlfriend and an occupying British officer, Martins learns of allegations of Lime's involvement in racketeering, which Martins vows to clear from his friend's reputation. As he is drawn deeper into post-war intrigue, Martins finds layer upon layer of deception, which he desperately tries to sort out. Welles' long-delayed entrance in the film has become one of the hallmarks of modern cinematography and it is just one of dozens of cockeyed camera angles that seem to mirror the off-kilter post-war society. Cotten and Welles give career-making performances and the Anton Karas zither theme will haunt you. --Anne Hurley
La Strada | DVD | (19/06/2017)
from £11.48 | Saving you £N/A (N/A%) | RRP
Considered by many to be Federico Fellini's most beautiful and powerful film, La Strada was the first film to reveal the range of Guilietta Masina, whose poignant performance as the childlike Gelsomina recalls Chaplin's Little Tramp. The bubbly, waiflike Gelsomina is a simpleton sold to the gruff, bullying circus strongman Zampanò (Anthony Quinn) as a servant and assistant. Treated no better than an animal, Gelsomina nonetheless falls in love with the brute Zampano. When they join a small circus they meet Il Matto (Richard Basehart), a clown who enchants Gelsomina and relentlessly taunts Zampanograve;, whose inability to control his hatred of Il Matto (literally, "the Fool") leads to their expulsion from the circus and eventually to the film's fateful conclusion. Masina is heartbreaking as the wide-eyed innocent, whose generous spirit and love of life leads her to try to "save" Quinn's unfeeling, brutal Zampanò. Though the film resonates with mythic and biblical dimensions, Fellini never loses sight of his characters, lovingly painted in all their frailties and failings. Fellini's lyrical style reaches back to the simple beauty of his neorealist films and looks ahead to the impressionistic fantasies of later films, but at this unique period in Fellini's career, they combine to create a poetic, tragic masterpiece. --Sean Axmaker
Lifeboat (Ltd Edition Dual Format Steelbook) | Blu Ray | (23/04/2012)
from £15.00 | Saving you £6.90 (30.00%) | RRP
Based on an unpublished novella by John Steinbeck (written on commission expressly to provide treatment material for Hitchcock's screen scenario), Lifeboat found the Master of Suspense navigating a course of maximal tension – in the most minimal of settings – with a consistently inventive, beautifully paced drama that would foreshadow the single-set experiments of Rope and Dial M for Murder.After a Nazi torpedo reduces an ocean liner to wooden splinters and scorched personal effects, the survivors of the attack pull themselves aboard a drifting lifeboat in the hope of eventual rescue. But the motivations of the German submarine captain (played by Walter Slezak) on the eponymous craft might extend beyond mere survival...With a cast including Shadow of a Doubt veteran Hume Cronyn and the extraordinary, irrepressible Tallulah Bankhead, this 'picture of characters', as Franois Truffaut aptly termed the film, oscillates dazzlingly between comic reparte and white-knuckle suspense – a perfect example of 'the Hitchcock touch'.
Taxi Driver: Anniversary Edition | Blu Ray | (07/11/2016)
from £10.00 | Saving you £5.99 (37.50%) | RRP
Taxi Driver is the definitive cinematic portrait of loneliness and alienation manifested as violence. It is as if director Martin Scorsese and screenwriter Paul Schrader had tapped into precisely the same source of psychological inspiration ("I just knew I had to make this film", Scorsese would later say), combined with a perfectly timed post-Watergate expression of personal, political and societal anxiety. Robert De Niro, as the tortured, ex-Marine cab driver Travis Bickle, made movie history with his chilling performance as one of the most memorably intense and vividly realised characters ever committed to film. Bickle is a self-appointed vigilante who views his urban beat as an intolerable cesspool of blighted humanity. He plays guardian angel for a young prostitute (Jodie Foster), but not without violently devastating consequences. This masterpiece, which is not for all tastes, is sure to horrify some viewers, but few could deny the film's lasting power and importance. --Jeff Shannon
Notorious | DVD | (30/10/2000)
from £11.96 | Saving you £-5.97 (-99.70%) | RRP
One of Alfred Hitchcock's classics, this romantic thriller features a cast to die for: Ingrid Bergman, Cary Grant and Claude Rains. Bergman plays the daughter of a disgraced father who is recruited by American agents to infiltrate a post-World War II spy ring in Brazil. Her control agent is Grant, who treats her with disdain while developing a deep romantic bond with her. Her assignment: to marry the suspected head of the ring (Rains) and get the goods on everyone involved. Danger, deceit, betrayal--and, yes, romance--all come together in a nearly perfect blend as the film builds to a terrific (and surprising) climax. Grant and Bergman rarely have been better. --Marshall Fine

The Steve Mcqueen Collection - Tom Horn / Towering Inferno / Bullitt / The Cinncinatti / Never So Few | DVD | (17/09/2012)
from £13.99 | Saving you £4.86 (25.80%) | RRP
UK Release 5-Disc DVD Set (Tom Horn / The Towering Inferno / Bullitt / The Cincinnati Kid / Never So Few) - TOM HORN: The saga of Tom Horn - areal-life "enforcer" of Old West days - held a particular fascination for another legend. Hollywood icon Steve McQueen starred in and executive produced what would be his next-to-last movie, a gritty, exciting recreation of Horn's latter-day career in a turn-of-the-century West where gentler ways supplanted the law of the gun - and Horn would be an unwitting victim of that change. THE TOWERING INFERNO: The world's tallest building is skyscraping testimony to ingenuity and innovation. In the hands of "Master of Disaster" film producer Irwin Allen ("The Poseidon Adventure"), it's also the world's tallest matchstick. An all-star cast gathers for this tall story of lofty dimensions: eight Academy Award nominations and three Oscars. On the night of the building's dedication, fire erupts, trapping people on the upper floors... and igniting multiple tales of heroism and loss involving a firefighter (Steve McQueen), an architect (Paul Newman) and others caught in the steel-and-glass inferno (including William Holden, Faye Dunaway, Fred Astaire and Jennifer Jones). With Star power, pyrotechnics and suspense in abundance, THE TOWERING INFERNO sizzled at box offices worldwide. BULLTIT: Detective Frank Bullitt's new assignment seems routine: protecting a star witness for an important trial. But before the night is out, the witness lies dying, and the cool, no-nonsense Bullitt (Steve McQueen) won't rest until the shooters - and the kingpin pulling their strings - are nailed. From opening shot to closing shootout, BULLITT crackles with authenticity: on location San Francisco filming, crisp dialogue and to-the-letter police, hospital and morgue prodcedures. An Oscar winner for Best Film Editing (1968), this razor-edged thriller features one of cinema history's most memorable car chases. Buckle up... and brace for unbeatable action.

Mary Poppins | DVD | (08/07/2002)
from £15.28 | Saving you £4.71 (23.60%) | RRP
A pioneering film within Animation, Musicals and Fantasy, Walt Disney's Mary Poppins is possibly one of the warmest and dearest films ever made. Based on a story by PL Travers we find Julie Andrews on fine form in her debut lead role (for which she would win the "Best Actress" Oscar). She is practically perfectly teamed with Dick Van Dyke as the lovable chimney sweep Burt, whose cockney accent is endearingly inaccurate. Along with a fine supporting cast, where even the child actors hold their own without appearing like stage school wannabes, Poppins and her crew take you on a magical ride through chalk pictures, the roof tops of London and show you that laughter is not always the best medicine (even with a spoon full of sugar) when you can't get down. In total Mary Poppins clocked up five Academy Awards including Best Song and Best Visual Effects and has made it into the staple diet of family viewing across the world. On the DVD: Mary Poppins has certainly cleaned up a treat, restoring her to 1.85:1 widescreen glory and 5.1 Dolby digital sound--which is guaranteed to be music to your ears. The special features are "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" with the "Sing Along with the Movie" subtitles for all your favourite songs when they appear in the movie and the "I Love to Laugh" game offering Uncle Albert flying high in his parlour once more. "The Movie Magic of Mary Poppins" lets you look behind the scenes at how the magic was done and is fun, informative and easily understandable--pity the same cannot be said about the narrator. "Hollywood goes to a World Premiere" is a warm and amusing reminder about how premieres and stars used to be in 1964. The only disappointment is the lack of commentary--Dick Van Dyke would surely have offered a gem of a cockney voice-over! --Nikki Disney
