Get ready for the Night of the Creeps for the first time on Blu-ray
By James Whittington, Tuesday 14th August 2018
Night of the Creeps cover

Eureka Entertainment will unleash Fred Dekker's Night of the Creeps, a simultaneously frightening and hilarious 80s horror classic, in a Dual Format (Blu-ray and DVD) edition as part of the Eureka Classics range from 8th October.

When an alien experiment goes awry, it crashes to Earth in 1959 and infects a young college student. 27 years later, his cryogenically-frozen body is thawed out by fraternity pledges, and the campus is quickly overrun by alien creatures - whose victims come back as zombies!

A cult favourite among VHS owners of the 1980s, Dekker's supremely enjoyable throwback chiller deftly combines classic horror and sci-fi elements with delicious humour and loving in-jokes.

Presented for the first time on Blu-ray and DVD in the UK, this deluxe edition of Night of the Creeps features the original director's cut and a host of special features with the first print run coming with a Limited Edition O-Card slipcase and booklet.

Special features include:
High-definition remaster of the director's cut
Original stereo soundtrack and 5.1 surround audio options, presented in PCM and DTS-HD MA respectively on the Blu-ray
Audio commentary by writer/director Fred Dekker
Audio commentary by actors Jason Lively, Tom Atkins, Steve Marshall and Jill Whitlow

Little Did You Know: The Confessions of David McGillivray coming soon!
Posted on Tuesday 2nd April 2019

FAB Press is publishing the eagerly-awaited autobiography of horror and sexploitation movie writer and director David McGillivray.

In this sensational memoir, illustrated with many previously unseen photos, McGillivray reveals how his anti-establishment lifestyle stretches back to his teenage years and journeys six decades, taking us through the cocaine-lined world of London's media industry, the tragic heights of the AIDS epidemic and the sinful celluloid backstreets of Soho. It's a colourful picaresque account of the capital from every angle.

Described by Jonathan Ross as "a comedy legend", Alan Jones as "a horror icon" and Matthew Sweet as "the Truffaut of smut", David McGillivray has enj...

Now that's what I call The Radiophonic Workshop!
Posted on Tuesday 26th March 2019
The Radiophonic Workshop

After the release of BBC Radiophonic Music (1971), and Fourth Dimension (1973), this was the third album to be produced by the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, coming out in February 1975.

Where the first album focused on showcasing commissioned TV themes, and the second was mainly Paddy Kingsland's project, most of the tracks on this album were written by the Workshop's composers specially for the release, the exceptions being Major Bloodnok's Stomach, The Panel Beaters and The World of Science.

In the early seventies, the equipment and techniques the composers used were at the cutting edge of music technology. This album was an opportunity for them to create mus...

Arrow Video to release The Iguana with the Tongue of Fire on Blu-ray and limited edition vinyl soundtrack

The Iguana with the Tongue of Fire

One of several 'animal-in-the-title' cash-ins released in the wake of Dario Argento's box-office smash The Bird with the Crystal Plumage, The Iguana with the Tongue of Fire is a gloriously excessive giallo that boasts a rogues gallery of perverse characters; violent, fetishized murders, and one of the genre's most nonsensical, red-herring laden plots (which sees almost every incidental character hinted at potentially being the killer).

Arrow Records will release the official soundtrack on limited edition purple vinyl too!

Set in Dublin (a rather surprising giallo location), Iguana opens audaciously with an acid-throwing, razor-wi...
