Horror with balls

Advantages: The first film is a classic
Disadvantages: The other four films are most emphatically not classic

...This limited edition boxset from Arrow films is £70 on amazon at time of writing. Phantasm is a venerable horror franchise that never quite made it to the kind of public recognition of Halloween or Nightmare on Elm Street, but which has a fairly passion ...

This set from Arrow Video – containing 10 Blu-rays and 8 DVDs – is supposedly exclusive to amazon, where it costs around £90 at the moment. It can usually be found on ebay too, for a little more than that. It’s a limited edition, so may one da ...

The naked and the dead

Advantages: Good music, decent picture quality
