Beautifully shot, this riveting first-hand testimony is interwoven with visually stunning archive material which has been re-mastered from the original NASA film footage - much of it never used before.

Rookie police officer Dick Durkin (Alastair Duncan) is assigned to partner wisecracking maverick Harley Stone (Rutger Hauer) a burnt-out and highly cynical homicide detective who was unable to prevent the murder of his partner by a serial killer several years previously. Now however the murders have begun again and Stone and Durkin are assigned the case. After investigating the scenes of several killings they appear no closer to identifying the killer with their only clues being that the murders seem to be linked to the lunar cycle and that the killer has multiple DNA strands having absorbed the DNA of the victims. Finally after Stone's girlfriend Michelle (Kim Cattrall) is kidnapped the detectives track the killer deep into the flooded and disused London Underground system and discover the truth: the killer is not human. It's a horrific and possibly demonic form of life that is fast savage bloodthirsty and fixated upon killing Stone just as it previously killed his partner. As each killing and appearance of the monster is an attempt to lure them closer and closer can Stone and Durkin rescue Michelle and save London and themselves from true evil!?

  • The Wedding Tackle [2000]The Wedding Tackle | DVD | (03/04/2006) from £17.96   |  Saving you £-12.97 (-259.90%)   |  RRP £4.99

    Harking back to the wilderness days of British cinema, The Wedding Tackle is an unsophisticated comedy of manners and relationships. Dealing with the impending matrimony of Hal and Vinny, a union that neither are particularly keen to enter into, the story intertwines a number of characters during the events of Hal's stag night. As the title suggests, much of the humour is aimed below the waist, and although it does wend its way to some sort of romantic conclusion, subtlety is not the film's strong point. Victoria Smurfit's Clodegh is by far the best character, an urban Tank Girl whose morals are as erratic as her driving skills. Bold, brash and noisy, The Wedding Tackle isn't the worst film around, but we can do so much better. --Phil Udell

At once intimate and awe-inspiring For All Mankind is a genuinely mesmerising first-hand document of one of the high points of the 20th century. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Criterion's beautiful high-definition restoration of the film for its UK home viewing premi''re in a comprehensive director-approved special edition on DVD.

  • Downtime [1998]Downtime | DVD | (07/06/2004) from £N/A   |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)   |  RRP £5.99

    Down Time is a strange attempt to mix concrete Northern social realism and Bruce-Willis-style cliffhanger thrills, with balls of fire billowing up empty lift shafts and so forth. Paul McGann plays an ex-police psychologist, retired through ill health, drafted in to dissuade miserable single mother Chrissy (Susan Lynch) from throwing herself and her child off the top of a tower block. He succeeds, though in so doing betrays some of the problems that caused him to quit his job. He then pursues Chrissy romantically, during the course of which he, she and her little boy become stuck in the tower block lift, which then starts ascending and descending at random when hoodlum squatters break into the control box and mess about with it for an idle laugh. With its bizarre and somewhat improbable scenario, its odd mix of whimsical light romance, grim-up-North-style melodrama and explosive stunt action, Down Time as a whole doesn't really come off. The behaviour of key characters borders on the arbitrary, the "yobs" who cause all the problems go curiously unpunished and the ending barely makes sense. However, the lengthy mid-sequence in which McGann rescues (and is rescued by) Chrissy from the perilously dangling lift is, though predictable in its outcome, gripping enough. --David Stubbs
