Edgar Allen Slow

Advantages: The third story is great
Disadvantages: The first two stories are less good

This Arrow Blu-ray is a mere £9 on amazon at the moment. There was a boom in gothic horror movies in the late 50s and early 60s. One of the main strands of this boom was Roger Corman’s series of Edgar Allen Poe movies, most starring Vincent Price. While ...

Off the beaten track

Advantages: Interesting films, well presented
Disadvantages: Although the films are good, none stands out as absolutely essential

This three-film boxset from Arrow Video is £40 on amazon or HMV. It's described as a 'limited edition', so presumably there will either be a cheaper version at some point, or there will be individual releases of the films. This is a set containing three ...
