  The Other on Blu-ray and DVD [read more]
  Twin dilemma
  A genuinely chilling psychological horror from director Robert Mulligan (To Kill a Mockingbird), The Other provides enough gruesome twists and turns to keep you guessing right up until its shocking finale.

Mysterious accidents befall a family on a farm in depression-era Connecticut resulting in the death of a beloved father and a cherished twin brother. But when nine-year-old Holland begins to see – and speak to – his twin, the remaining family members can only wait in terrified anticipation for more tragedies to occur... as it slowly dawns on them that the accidents may not be accidental after all.

With the same haunting tension as The Exorcist and The Omen, Mulligan’s The Other eschews gore in favour of richly detailed psychological horror in its depiction of deeply disturbed children. Beautifully shot by the extraordinary Robert Surges (Ben Hur) and adapted for the screen by Thomas Tryon from his own bestselling novel The Other is an unsettling horror masterpiece.

On Blu-ray as part of a Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) edition on 23 February 2015.

  The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel [read more]
  One for the grans
  The renowned cast has reunited for the film including stars Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy, Dev Patel, Celia Imrie, Penelope Wilton, Ronald Pickup, Tina Desai, Diana Hardcastle, Lillete Dubey. Additional cast making their debut include Tamsin Greig, with David Strathairn and Richard Gere.

THE SECOND BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL is the expansionist dream of Sonny (Dev Patel), and it’s making more claims on his time than he has available, considering his imminent marriage to the love of his life, Sunaina (Tina Desai).

Sonny has his eye on a promising property now that his first venture, ‘The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel for the Elderly and Beautiful’, has only a single remaining vacancy – posing a rooming predicament for fresh arrivals Guy (Richard Gere) and Lavinia (Tamsin Greig).

Evelyn and Douglas (Judi Dench and Bill Nighy) have now joined the Jaipur workforce, and are wondering where their regular dates for Chilla pancakes will lead, while Norman and Carol (Ronald Pickup and Diana Hardcastle) are negotiating the tricky waters of an exclusive relationship, as Madge (Celia Imrie) juggles two eligible and very wealthy suitors. Perhaps the only one who may know the answers is newly installed co-manager of the hotel, Muriel (Maggie Smith), the keeper of everyone's secrets.

Released in UK cinemas February 26, 2015. The trailer is above.

  Zulu on Blu-ray and DVD [read more]
  Not that one
  Award-winning actors Forest Whitaker (The Last King Of Scotland) and Orlando Bloom (The Hobbit; The Lords Of The Rings) star in the gripping, violent, and action-packed thriller “Zulu” - coming to DVD & Blu-ray January 19th 2015.

This 2013 Official Cannes Selection sees the duo play tough detectives investigating a brutal murder in post-Apartheid South Africa.

“Zulu” balances exciting action with emotional drama, inspiring Orlando Bloom into a career-best turn - his conflicted cop with a past is worthy of several spin-offs. Which isn’t to diminish Forest Whitaker’s compelling turn - his Chief is the heart of the film, and Whitaker is as mesmerising as ever. Pre-order at the link above.

  Bad boyfriend
  ART Garfunkel (Lost In Translation, As Good As It Gets) and Theresa Russell (The Believer, Kafka) bring a fearless intensity to their roles in this dark psycho-sexual drama from multi-award-winning director Nicolas Roeg (Walkabout, Don’t Look Now). Bad Timing (18) is released on Blu-ray on 26 January 2015, RRP £14.99, courtesy of Network’s ‘The British Film’ collection.

Vienna-based psychoanalyst Alex Linden is involved in a passionate affair with Milena Flaherty, a hedonistic, sexually impulsive and clearly troubled young woman. When Milena is brought into a hospital emergency room after apparently overdosing, detectives investigate the possibility of foul play on Alex’s part. As he recounts the events to the investigating officer, Alex is forced to confront his own motives and detectives must decide whether her condition is the result of a suicide attempt, or something more sinister.

Also out on the 26th of January is Baby Love, a rare, controversial thriller starring Linda Hayden and Diana Dors from award-winning director Alastair Reid.
