    From the mind of writer/director Clive Barker the macabre visionary responsible for Hellraiser and Candyman comes Nightbreed, a nightmare-induced fantasy set in a world like nothing you've ever experienced before one which will leave you questioning who the real monsters are. By night, Aaron Boone (Craig Sheffer, Teen Wolf) dreams of Midian, a hidden subterranean world where monsters have created a haven from humanity. Under pressure from his girlfriend Lori (Anne Bobby, Born on the Fourth of July), he attends psychotherapy sessions, unaware that his shrink, Dr Decker (Videodrome director David Cronenberg), is setting him up to take the fall for a series of violent murders. Convinced he no longer belongs in the human world, Boone goes in search of Midian not realising that the real killer has plans for both him and the colourful cast of outsiders who call it home The victim of studio interference and an unrepresentative marketing campaign, Nightbreed was poorly received by critics on its initial release and failed to ignite the box office, but has since undergone a radical reappraisal. Arrow Video is proud to present two versions of this depraved cult classic: the studio-approved theatrical cut and the reconstructed, reinvigorated director's cut, for the ultimate nightmarish viewing experience. 2-DISC SPECIAL EDITION CONTENTS High Definition Blu-ray™ (1080p) presentations of the 120-minute director's cut, transferred from the original camera negative, and the 102-minute theatrical cut, transferred from the original interpositive Lossless 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio and uncompressed 2.0 PCM audio on the director's cut Uncompressed 2.0 PCM audio on the theatrical cut Optional English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing New audio commentary on the theatrical cut by critics Adrian J Smith and David Flint Audio commentary on the director's cut by writer/director Clive Barker and restoration producer Mark Alan Miller Introduction to the director's cut by Clive Barker and Mark Alan Miller Walking the Line Between Heaven and Hell, a new video interview with critic Kat Ellinger Memories of Midian, a new video interview with actor Nicholas Vince Speaking up for the Monsters, a new video interview with critic Kim Newman Tribes of the Moon: Making Nightbreed, an extensive documentary on the making of the film, featuring actors Craig Sheffer, Doug Bradley, Anne Bobby and many more Making Monsters, a documentary on the film's creature designs, featuring special makeup designer Bob Keen Fire!

  • Dead Ringers [1989]Dead Ringers | DVD | (31/01/2000) from £6.00   |  Saving you £0.99 (14.20%)   |  RRP £6.99

    Like many other films by Canadian director David Cronenberg (especially Crash), Dead Ringers presents the cinematic and psychological equivalent of an automobile accident--you dare not look, but you can't turn away. The film marked a directorial breakthrough for Cronenberg, who was able to continue some of the themes explored in his earlier horror films while graduating to a higher, more critically "respectable" level of artistic sophistication. The film is loosely based, amazingly enough, on a true story about twin gynaecologists who routinely traded each others' identities, lives and even lovers. Utilizing innovative split-screen technology (years before computer manipulation made such trickery much easier), the film stars Jeremy Irons in flawless dual roles as the identical brothers Beverly and Elliot Mantle. Their ability to instantly switch identities leads them to a shared relationship with a well-known actress (Genevieve Bujold) and, ultimately, a physical and psychological tailspin that sends them both to the brink of madness and death. The scenario suggests that both men are halves of a whole, and that one cannot exist without the other. But when Beverly pursues a kinky, drug-addicted affair with the actress, his more self-controlled brother is helpless to prevent their mutual decline. In this way Dead Ringers becomes a fascinating and stylistically clinical study of duality, and Cronenberg doesn't shy away from the dark and unpleasant aspects of the story. (One look at the movie's display of bizarre gynaecological instruments and you'll know why women find this film particularly--and unforgettably--disturbing.) The Criterion Collection DVD includes illuminating commentary by Cronenberg, Irons, production designer Carol Spier and others; extensive production information; interviews with the principal cast; and a detailed examination of the film's groundbreaking use of invisible special effects. --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com --This text refers to the DVD edition of this video.
