PRINCE: SIGN '☮' THE TIMES (1987) Available 20th January on Blu-ray from 101 Films

Prince and his band bring the Grammy Nominated Album Sign ‘☮’ the Times (1987) to life in what is one of the greatest concert films ever made. Although the album of the same name is now broadly recognised as the pinnacle of Prince’s musical achievements, initial sales failed to reach the heights of Purple Rain. The idea of a concert film was soon formed, in order to promote the album to American audiences in theatres.

“If you go to only one concert this year… the Prince movie is the one!”

Skinner (1993, USA) 101 Films Blu-ray Review

Skinner is an American slasher flick that has been frequently and unfairly compared with Jonathan Demme’s The Silence of the Lambs (1991); overshadowed by a high-profile scandal involving its director Ivan Nagy, and his ex-girlfriend, the “Hollywood Madam” Heidi Fleiss; cut to shreds by the Motion Picture Association of America; whose original film elements were thought to be lost; and stars Ted Raimi in the leading role as Dennis Skinner! Yes, Skinner is sick, slick and most definitely sleazy!

“He’ll get under your skin.”
