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 ...

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 ...

Every body has a secret

Advantages: Good, creepy horror movie
Disadvantages: Weak ending, poor CGI

Mummy ache

Advantages: Impressive picture quality for films' ages
Disadvantages: Films are mostly weak

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 ...
