Glass half Fulci

Advantages: Quite a good Blu-ray, I guess
Disadvantages: The film is terrible

This Blu-ray from 88 Films is £15 on amazon and at HMV at time of writing. Lucio Fulci had been a mildly interesting jack-of-all-trades Italian director during the late 60s and 70s (he made a couple of good gialli), but he only really came into his own i ...

Slithering slimy slaughter

Advantages: It's funny, if you like that kind of thing
Disadvantages: It isn't meant to be funny

This Arrow Video Blu-ray is currently about £13 on amazon and the same in HMV. Revenge of nature films, in which animals rise up and punish man for his scientific hubris, were pretty big business at one point. Iím surprised we arenít seeing another spate ...
