  • The Thing [Blu-ray] The Thing | Blu Ray | (20/11/2017) from £13.30  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £N/A

    Director John Carpenter and special makeup effects master Rob Bottin teamed up for this 1982 remake of the 1951 science fiction classic The Thing from Another World, and the result is a mixed blessing. It's got moments of highly effective terror and spine-tingling suspense, but it's mostly a showcase for some of the goriest and most horrifically grotesque makeup effects ever created for a movie. With such highlights as a dog that splits open and blossoms into something indescribably gruesome, this is the kind of movie for die-hard horror fans and anyone who slows down to stare at fatal traffic accidents. On those terms, however, it's hard not to be impressed by the movie's wild and wacky freak show. It all begins when scientists at an arctic research station discover an alien spacecraft under the thick ice, and thaw out the alien body found aboard. What they don't know is that the alien can assume any human form, and before long the scientists can't tell who's real and who's a deadly alien threat. Kurt Russell leads the battle against the terrifying intruder, and the supporting cast includes Richard Masur, Richard Dysart, Donald Moffat, and Wilford Brimley. They're all playing standard characters who are neglected by the mechanistic screenplay (based on the classic sci-fi story "Who Goes There?" by John W. Campbell), but Carpenter's emphasis is clearly on the gross-out effects and escalating tension. If you've got the stomach for it (and let's face it, there's a big audience for eerie gore), this is a thrill ride you won't want to miss. --Jeff Shannon

  • Wolf Guy [Dual Format Blu-ray + DVD] Wolf Guy | Blu Ray | (22/05/2017) from £13.30  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £N/A

    Shinichi Sonny Chiba is a martial arts manimal in the ultra-70's, 100% bizarre mixture of horror, action and sci-fi that is Wolf Guy, one of the rarest and most sought-after cult films produced by Japan's Toei Studio. Based on a manga by Kazumasa Hirai (creator of 8 Man), and never before released outside of Japan, it's a genre film classic waiting to be discovered and a completely unclassifiable trip into phantasmagoric funk. Chiba stars as Akira Inugami, the only survivor of a clan of ancient werewolves who relies on his supernatural powers to solve mysterious crimes. After a series of bloody killings perpetrated by an unseen force, Inugami uncovers a conspiracy involving a murdered cabaret singer, corrupt politicians, and a plot by the J-CIA to harvest his blood in order to steal his lycanthropic powers! At the same time, Inugami also discovers the truth behind his family heritage, and that he may not be the last of his kind. Directed by B-movie genius Kazuhiko Yamaguchi (Sister Streetfighter, Wandering Ginza Butterfly, Karate Bear Fighter), Wolf Guy truly is one-of-a-kind, with Chiba in full effect as the part-man, part-wolf, all-karate action hero and a collection of familiar 1970's Toei actors in support. Violence, action, nudity, real surgical footage, and a psychedelic musical score all work together to create an unforgettable trip to the heights of Japanese cinematic weirdness.

This is the first time the film has been included in a Warner Bros.

Scott, and Sterling Hayden.2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)Stanley Kubrick’s dazzling, Academy Award-winning achievement (Special Visual Effects) is an allegorical puzzle on the evolution of man and a compelling drama of man vs. machine.

Clarke) first visits the prehistoric age-ancestry past, then leaps millennia (via one of the most mind-blowing jump cuts ever) into colonized space, and ultimately whisks astronaut Bowman (Keir Dullea) into uncharted space, perhaps even into immortality.Special Features: Commentary by Keir Dullea and Gary Lockwood Documentary 2001: The Making of a Myth Standing on the Shoulders of Kubrick: The Legacy of 2001 Vision of a Future Passed: The Prophecy of 2001 2001: A Space Odyssey – A Look Behind the Future and What Is Out There? 2001: FX and Early Conceptual Artwork Look: Stanley Kubrick!

He takes the name of Barry Lyndon, settles in England with wealth and power beyond his wildest dreams, before eventually falling into ruin.The Shining (1980)From a script he co-adapted from the Stephen King novel, Kubrick melds vivid performances, menacing settings, dreamlike tracking shots and shock after shock into a milestone of the macabre. The Shining is the director’s epic tale of a man in a snowbound hotel descending into murderous delusions. In a signature role, Jack Nicholson (“Heeeere’s Johnny!”) stars as Jack Torrance, who’s come to the elegant, isolated Overlook Hotel as off-season caretaker with his wife (Shelley Duvall) and son (Danny Lloyd).Special Features: Commentary by Steadicam inventor/operator Garrett Brown and historian John Baxter Vivian Kubrick’s Documentary The Making of the Shining with Optional Commentary View from the Overlook: Crafting The Shining The Visions of Stanley Kubrick and Wendy Carlos, Composer Full Metal Jacket (1987)A superb ensemble falls in for Stanley Kubrick’s brilliant saga about the Vietnam War and the dehumanizing process that turns people into trained killers.

Cruise plays a doctor who plunges into an erotic foray that threatens his marriage – and may ensnare him in a murder mystery – after his wife’s (Kidman) admission of sexual longings. As the story sweeps from doubt and fear to self-discovery and reconciliation, Kubrick orchestrates it with masterful flourishes. His graceful tracking shots, rich colours and startling images are some of the bravura traits that show Kubrick as a filmmaker for the ages.Special Features: Three-Part Documentary: The Last Movie: Stanley Kubrick and Eyes Wide Shut The Haven/Mission Control, Artificial Intelligence or The Writer as Robot EWS: A Film by Stanley Kubrick Lost Kubrick: The Unfinished Films of Stanley Kubrick Interview Gallery Featuring Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman and Steven Spielberg Kubrick’s 1998 Directors Guild of America D.W.

In Scars of Dracula, Christopher Lee returned to his most famous role for the fifth time, and director Roy Ward Baker (Quatermass and the Pit, Dr Jekyll and Sister Hyde) created the unprecedented shot of the Count scaling his castle walls.

  • The Abominable Dr Phibes [Blu-ray] The Abominable Dr Phibes | Blu Ray | (10/11/2014) from £11.99  |  Saving you £8.00 (40.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    The Abominable Dr Phibes is an unusually beautiful horror classic in which Vincent Price stars as the titular genius who specialises in organ music, theology and concocting bizarre deaths for anyone who wrongs him. Discovering why is half the fun, so for now let's just say that Phibes is a little mad and very, very angry. Aided by his assistant, the lovely, silent Vulnavia, Phibes begins cutting a gory swathe through London's medical community, with the dogged Inspector Trout hot on his tail. The film contains many pleasures--exquisite art direction and a dark sense of humour among them--but the real treat is in watching an old pro such as Price at work. Whether he's playing his organ, staring down a victim or drinking through his neck, Price is at the top of his game. He mixes dark menace with wry comic touches, revealing both Phibes' maniacal obsession and offhanded confidence in his own genius. Settle in for an evening of elegant gore--and if an attractive, mute deliverywoman comes to the door, whatever you do, don't answer! --Ali Davis

    It was the last thing on earth they ever expected. Life can be tough when you're a Valley girl. First there's making sure you're on time for pep squad practice. Then there's having to live under the same roof as your bitchy stepmother who you suspect is making it with Chuck from across the road. And then of course there's having to keep on the lookout for the occasional marauding zombie hungering after your flesh! Eighteen year-old Reggie (Catherine Mary Stewart - Weekend at Bernie's The Last Starfighter) misses out on the event-of-a-lifetime when she ditches watching the comet in favour of copping off with the projectionist at the cinema where she works. But this turns out to be a wise move when the next day she discovers that the entire population has been reduced to piles of red dust - leaving only Reggie her sister Sam (Kelli Maroney - Fast Times at Ridgemont High Chopping Mall) and a handful of other survivors to fend off the roving gangs of glassy-eyed zombies. Taking its cue from classic 'doomsday' movies such as The Day of the Triffids and The Omega Man (and with a healthy dose of Dawn of the Dead thrown in for good measure) Night of the Comet is an irresistible slice of Reagan-era B-movie fare which features Cindi Lauper dance-alongs as well as some truly gravity-defying bouffant hairstyles...

  • Tales of Terror [ Blu-ray] Tales of Terror | Blu Ray | (09/03/2015) from £9.73  |  Saving you £8.00 (40.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Tales of Terror is a trio of Edgar Allen Poe stories, starring three of horror's greats--Vincent Price, Basil Rathbone and Peter Lorre--and produced and directed by the immortal Roger Corman. The first story, "Morella", involves a girl (Debra Paget) who returns to her isolated, spooky family home to see her estranged father (Price) for the first time in 26 years. He's let the housekeeping slide a bit--cobwebs abound and, oh, yes, his dead wife is still upstairs. Peter Lorre joins the fun for "The Black Cat", a piece with comic flavour that allows Price to show his rarely seen silly side, and then it's Basil Rathbone's turn to be creepy in "The Case of M Valdemar", the tale of a mesmerist who decides to experiment with the unknown (bad idea). The movie is well paced, and makes good use of comedy without undercutting its chills. It's a rare treat to see this many masters of the genre working together and so clearly enjoying themselves. --Ali Davis

  • Audition Blu-Ray Audition Blu-Ray | Blu Ray | (29/02/2016) from £10.33  |  Saving you £7.00 (38.90%)  |  RRP £17.99

    Much of the controversy surrounding Takashi Miike's Audition centres on the disturbing nature of the later part of the film--understandable when you consider the imprint these admittedly horrific images leave on the viewer--but fails to note the intricate social satire of the rest. This is a film that offers insight into the changing culture of Japan and the generation gap between young and old. Shigeharu Aoyama is looking for an obedient and virtuous woman to love and asks, "Where are all the good girls?"--a comment that seals his fate. A fake audition is organised to find Aoyama a wife. Asami Yamazaki is introduced as the virtuous woman he is looking for, dressing for the majority of the film in white and behaving with the courtesy of an angel, especially when juxtaposed against the brash stupidity of the other girls at the audition. Although his friend takes an immediate "chemical" dislike to her, Aoyama begins a love affair to end all love affairs. But as Asami's history unfolds we see her pain and torture and slowly understand that the tortured in this instance holds the power to become the torturer. Aoyama is slowly drawn away from his white, metallic and homely environment into the vivid- red and dirty-dark environment of Asami's sadistic world. Audition can be viewed on a number of levels, with important feminist, social and human rights issues to be drawn from the story. However, the real power of this film is its descent into the subconscious, to a point where reality is blurred and the audience is unable to decide whether the disturbing images on screen are real or surreal. This refined, hard-hitting and essentially Japanese style of horror is ultimately much more powerful than anything offered by Hollywood. This is a film that will get under your skin and infect your consciousness with a blend of fearless gore and unimaginable torture. It is not for the faint-hearted. --Nikki Disney

Ballet student Suzy Bannion (Jessica Harper) arrives at a prestigious dance academy in Freiburg, a school plagued by gruesome and supernatural happenings.

Now finally presented for the 1st time ever according to the director's original vision: the 4K scan was restored painstakingly by the applauded TLE Films (who did the Clint Eastwood Dollar Trilogy among others) with that crucially distinct colour palette reinstated in accordance with Argento's original specification.

    From Jacques Tourneur director of numerous horror classics including Cat People I Walked with a Zombie and Night of the Demon comes The Comedy of Terrors – a gleefully macabre tale which brings together genre greats Vincent Price Peter Lorre and Boris Karloff. Price plays Waldo Trumbull a perpetually inebriated down-on-his-luck undertaker who has struck on an interesting way to boost business – by hastening the deaths of those whom he buries. When landlord Mr. Black (Basil Rathbone) threatens to put him out on the street for falling behind with the rent Trumbull together with his reluctant and bumbling assistant Felix Gillie (Lorre) hatches an ill-advised plan to “kill two birds with one stone” so to speak… The penultimate directorial effort from Tourneur The Comedy of Terrors bears many of the hallmarks of the master filmmaker’s earlier works whilst adding a healthy dash of humour to the proceedings. Careful – you might just die laughing!

    For the last of his cycle of Edgar Allan Poe adaptations Roger Corman asked screenwriter Robert Towne (Chinatown) to turn Poe s story Ligeia into another vehicle for Vincent Price who once again plays a man so haunted by his past that he is unable to function in the present. In this case the past comes in the form of his now-deceased first wife Ligeia who casts a long shadow over an ill-advised second marriage to a woman who resembles her (Elizabeth Shepherd) particularly when he becomes convinced that Ligeia s spirit is returning to him in the form of a black cat. But is this actually a delusion on his part? Although the doom-laden narrative and Price s tormented performance had become well established ingredients in the Corman Poe cycle the film looks strikingly different from the earlier films with much of it taking place in broad daylight and shot in actual English locations (notably Stonehenge and Norfolk s Castle Acre Priory) instead of Hollywood

    The Eyes of Laura Mars put an original spin on the "women in peril" plot staple by giving us Faye Dunaway as a fashion photographer disturbed by visions of real violence echoed in her flashy, S&M-influenced work. The visions start coming closer to home as her woman friends are butchered and their copies of her work vandalised. Good-looking cop Neville (Tommy Lee Jones) argues that her art is responsible, but nonetheless starts an affair with her. Hints are dropped that the killer might be someone close to her, like obsessive ex-con driver Tommy (Brad Dourif) or her possessive ex-husband Michael (Raul Julia). Evocative scenes of 70s' New York nightclub excess, and the strikingly perverse photographs of Helmut Newton, now create a period 70s' flavour to this flawed psychic thriller. Dunaway's performance is suitably overwrought and the young, slimline Jones is at once attractive and off-key. On the DVD: The DVD comes with subtitles, director's commentary, a publicity short made at the time and an interesting lecturette illustrated with yet more photographs. --Roz Kaveney

    The First New Horror Creature Before he turned his hand to lycanthropes in An American Werewolf in London shuffling zombies in the Thriller music video and hostile extra-terrestrials in Men in Black special effects legend Rick Baker lent his talents to the creation of another memorable horror creature. Step forward The Incredible Melting Man! When spacecraft Scorpio V returns to Earth following a mission to Saturn two of the crew are dead and the third astronaut Steve West is in a critical condition. Critical that is until he rises from his hospital bed to bite chunks out of a nurse before escaping into the surrounding countryside. The authorities set about trying to track Steve down before he claims any other victims but they don’t know the really bad news yet - Steve is also highly radioactive! The Incredible Melting Man offers up a wealth of show-stopping B-movie moments in its relatively modest running time – chief among them the scene in which a disembodied head floats down a river only to smash messily on the rocks further downstream – but the real star of the show here is Baker’s ultra-icky special effects work which let you see the Melting Man’s transition in all its gooey glistening glory.
