28 Days Later meets The Blair Witch Project as a mysterious virus turns the inhabitants of an apartment building into a horde of frenzied, bloodthirsty ghouls in [REC] - the original
2007 found footage phenomenon that spawned a hit franchise and US remake.
A television film crew, documenting the night shift of a Barcelona fire brigade, get much more than they bargained for when they attend an apparently routine call-out. Upon
arrival at an inner city apartment, the firefighters are viciously attacked by the elderly female occupant, who appears to be in the throes of some sort of viral infection. Before long, the virus has taken hold of the entire building, which is cordoned
off by the authorities. Trapped inside, the television crew - using their cameras to capture the events as they unfold - and the other remaining survivors find themselves pitched into a nightmare of unimaginable proportions.
Fusing the zombie
genre with the found footage format to throw the audience right into the midst of the action, [REC] is a terrifying, relentless rollercoaster ride which builds to one of the horror genre s all time bone-chilling climaxes.

Young marines on a WWII tour of duty learn that "war is hell" in this graphic, unflinching and honest drama of men in combat. Starring Cornel Wilde (The Big Combo, Road House)
and Rip Torn (Cross Creek, Time Limit), Beach Red marked a real breakthrough in American war picture production by taking pains to show the terror on both sides. After a gory battle to take the beach on a Japanese-held island in the Pacific, Captain
MacDonald (Wilde) asks Sergeant Honeywell (Torn) to lead a squad on a perilous journey deep into the jungle to find the enemy's stronghold. The scouts soon learn that the Japanese are preparing to strike back hard and fast. In the hours to come, whose
blood will soak the sand red? Co-written, produced and directed by star Cornel Wilde (Storm Fear, The Naked Prey, No Blade of Grass).

2020 Signal One [International Version + Director's Son's Cut] (RB) Blu-ray/R2 Combo
at UK Amazon #ad released on 28th December 2020
Patriot Films and Signal One Entertainment presents Erik the Viking. Monty Python alumnus Terry Jones' fast-paced, visually lavish comic fantasy starring Tim Robbins (The Shawshank
Redemption) as the reluctant marauder. Presented in a deluxe special edition, featuring a wealth of extras, and two unique cuts of the film.
A Viking with a conscience, Erik tires of pillaging and decides to set out on a quest. When the wise Freya
informs Erik that a great mythic wolf has eaten the sun, the warrior resolves to venture to Asgard, home of the Norse gods, to set things right. Before Erik can reach Asgard, he and his allies must first find a magical horn that resides in the land of
King Arnulf, who, luckily for the hero, has a lovely daughter, Princess Aud.
Monty Python's Terry Jones wrote and directed this madcap fantasy (inspired by his own children s book), and the eclectic cast reunites him with fellow Python John
Cleese, as well as legends Mickey Rooney and Eartha Kitt. Just as much of the humor of Erik stems from the anachronisms of old Norse mythological figures reacting to adventures with a modern wit, the film of Erik also seems wonderfully out of time -- an
anarchic, surreal, wild, 1970s-styled comic adventure arriving at the tail end of the 1980s. Jones continued to experiment with the film after its release, so we are presenting the original international theatrical cut here, along with the new version
created by Jones and his son.
Brand New Extras:
Original Theatrical Release Cut in HD (103 minutes/99 minutes in PAL)
"The Director's Son's Cut" in SD (79 minutes)

Movies") Mike McPadden and Comedy Writer/Producer Aaron Lee
Commentary Track on The Director's Son's Cut by Terry Jones
From Arnold Laven, the director of Anna Lucasta, Geronimo, The Glory Guys and Sam Whiskey, comes this tension-filled western starring screen greats Dean Martin (Texas Across the River),
George Peppard (Newman's Law) and Jean Simmons (Elmer Gantry). One-time lawman Alex Flood (Martin) is now the ruthless boss of Jericho--a town he once helped to clean up. Now this officer-gone-bad has bullied his way into owning more than half of all of
Jericho's businesses with the exception of the stagecoach line run by the strong-willed widow Molly Lang (Simmons). Molly and the townspeople turn to former Deputy U.S. Marshal Dolan (Peppard) for help but he refuses to take on the tyrant, figuring any
confrontation with Flood or his men is a losing battle. How far can one man be pushed before he finally fights back? Co-starring Slim Pickens (The Getaway) and John McIntire (Backlash).

Historian Samm Deighan -Theatrical Trailer -Dual-Layered BD50 Disc -Optional English Subtitles
Muscle's centrepiece sequence is a dingy, throbbing orgy scene set in a grubby suburban home in north-east England. It is so hypnotically grim that it takes a few moments to realise that the majority of
performers don't appear to be faking it. Sudden, unsimulated sex comes as a shock to the viewer; what was it like to shoot?
I had heard a story that the film's director, Gerard Johnson, simply filled a house with swingers, left
them to it and filmed whatever stragglers they found when they returned three days later. Yeah, it's basically that, says Fairbrass. Gerard was inundated with people who wanted to be in this scene. Literally inundated. It was so intense. So intense. You
had the people who were willing to go further and the people who weren't willing to go too far, so it was all orchestrated in a very professional way. Everybody had to consent.
Sick of his life and lifestyle Simon (Cavan Clerkin) hits the gym. His inexperience, timid nature, and soft body stick out in this run-down gym full of Schwarzeneggers. Immediately, he draws the attention of an intimidating
personal trainer named Terry who offers to coach him. Terrys criminal past, impulse to humiliate, and aggressive style all concern Simon but he swiftly sees results and finally feels alive.
All too quickly though, Simons life spins out of control
after his girlfriend leaves him and Terry becomes his boss, friend, and roommate. Simon suddenly finds himself trapped, stuck in a self-destructive spiral, as every aspect of his life now dangerously rests in Terrys big, tough hands...
