DVD and Blu-Ray World - Issue 90
Welcome to another fine issue of DVD and Blu-ray World, the UK's top home entertainment mag for those who like their viewing to have a bit of a cult flavour. Our philosophy is to uncover the hidden gems that other mainstream DVD and film mags fail to give much space to. We are also aware of the popularity of old movies among collectors, which is why we have our DVD Retro section to highlight the fine work in this area being done by companies such as Renown Pictures and Optimum. This time round look out for some great interviews with the likes of Tamer Hassan, one of our favourite screen gangsters since Nick Love's much-underrated movie, The Business.
Talented Hong Kong actress Josie Ho speaks about her role in the excellent Network chiller Dream Home and we also shoot the breeze with Michelle's sister, DeDee Pfeiffer, who has some intriguing movie credits to her name. Add Inglourious Basterd Eli Roth and vintage scream queen Elke Sommer to the mix and you have a very decent selection of exclusive interviewees, we're sure you'll agree. This month sees the release of the extremely controversial Serbian Film on the Revolver label, and we review it in depth in our Blu-ray section. It's not quite as nasty as the hype might make you believe, but the UK version has been severely truncated by the censor so you might want to try importing the uncut release. We'd like to congratulate our pals at Nucleus Films on the success of their Video Nasties: The Definitive Guide. It seems that this 3-disc set including trailers and a feature-length documentary sold out its original run in record time, proving that the lure of old horror films is still strong with the British public. Nucleus are following up with the UK DVD premiere of Ivan Reitman's Cannibal Girls and as usual they have done a bang-up job. You can read the review in this issue.
