SPIRITUAL KUNG FU Available on Blu-ray & DVD from 88 Films (UK / 26 October)

Made during Jackie Chan’s early apprenticeship to director Lo Wei – the man who made Bruce Lee a star – Spiritual Kung Fu sees Chan as a novice at the Shaolin Temple, who learns martial arts from a very unusual set of masters: the ghosts who haunt the temple. Under their spectral tutelage, he gains the skills he needs to defend Shaolin during its darkest hour… The Shaolin Masters of 88 Films are proud to present this classic slice of vintage chop-socky on beautiful Blu-ray (remastered on 2K) and DVD.

“The Five Style Fists has been lost for centuries.”

The Dare (2019, Bulgaria / USA / UK) Lionsgate UK DVD Review

The Dare (2019, Bulgaria / USA / UK) Lionsgate UK DVD Review

Directed and co-written by Giles Alderson, The Dare could easily be dismissed as a copycat of the movies that led to the mid-2000s resurgence of the splatter subgenre; unfortunately labelled “torture porn” by film critics and horror detractors. James Wan and Leigh Whannell’s Saw (2004), and Eli Roth’s Hostel (2005) are both seen as the pinnacle of the subgenre; the first to be labelled “torture porn” due to their emphasis on extreme violence and sadism, and never surpassed by the countless thrillers that followed. But despite a certain familiarity, The Dare breathes new life into the art of splatter.

“Let the evil out.”

Third Window Films is pleased to announce Europe’s first blu-ray and the UK’s first release of Shinya Tsukamoto’s Gemini.

Yukio is living a charmed life: he is a respected young doctor with a successful practice and a beautiful wife. His only problem is that his wife is suffering from amnesia…

Union Bridge (2019, USA) Review

Union Bridge (2019, USA) Review

After a somewhat confusing opening featuring a brutal beating in a night-time field and some navel gazing, this film finally settles on its focus – the down-on-his-luck prodigal son Will. Despite his best efforts, he is back in small town life after flaming out in the big city; a somewhat humiliating return that results in him skulking about town attempting to avoid inevitable re-connections with those folk who knew him before.

His old friend Nick seems to have fallen on hard times and now is given to wandering around the town dirty and troubled.

“Every family has secrets.”

The Dark Room (2020, USA) Review

The Dark Room (2020, USA) Review

Director Adrienne Lovette came to my attention through the release of her 2016 short horror/mystery film Hidden Daylight. A film that almost plays as a companion piece to The Dark Room, as it not only has some of the same cast, but most notably actor John Rice plays a psychic in both. The characters are very different, but Lovette is now carving out a name for herself in the horror genre as a director to definitely keep an eye on. Both films seem very similar in pacing and style and it’s easy to identify it was directed by the same person, which I always believe is a good thing.

“Some things are better left in the dark.”

Limited Edition BATGIRL and THE FLY "Help Me!" T-Shirts from Local Boogeyman

She’s so authoritative. So confident! The more you work with Batgirl, the more amazing she seems. How does she do it? Local Boogeyman disintegrated perfectly, but never reappeared. Where’s he gone? Into space… a stream of atoms… It’d be funny if life weren’t so sacred.

Set in both stunning and imposing locations with tenacious female leads, Jack Clayton’s The Innocents (1961) and Herk Harvey’s Carnival of Souls (1962) offer an intimate and highly psychological examination of the female mind whilst ruminating heavily and hauntingly on the age-old themes of sex and death.
