  The Orville on DVD
  They wish they could fly - they can
  Available on DVD 8th October 2018 from 20th Century Fox.

From the wonderfully warped mind of Emmy® winner Seth MacFarlane (Family Guy, Ted) comes this witty live-action sci-fi series. Thrust into his new position as commander, Captain Ed Mercer (MacFarlane) thrusts into space - aboard the explorer ship the USS Orville. Joined by his first officer ex-wife (Adrianne Palicki) and an intergalactic crew, he grapples with everything from a planet-absorbing space anomaly to an overly amorous, gelatinous engineer (Norm MacDonald). With its wry humour, insightful social commentary and brilliant ensemble cast, including Penny Johnson Jerald, Scott Grimes, Peter Macon and Halston Sage, The Orville is one of the freshest shows ever to enter our atmosphere.

  Maniac [read more]
  Trial and error
  Set in a world somewhat like our world, in a time quite similar to our time, Maniac tells the stories of Annie Landsberg (Emma Stone) and Owen Milgrim (Jonah Hill), two strangers drawn to the late stages of a mysterious pharmaceutical trial, each for their own reasons. Annie's disaffected and aimless, fixated on broken relationships with her mother and her sister; Owen, the fifth son of wealthy New York industrialists, has struggled his whole life with a disputed diagnosis of schizophrenia. Neither of their lives have turned out quite right, and the promise of a new, radical kind of pharmaceutical treatment - a sequence of pills its inventor, Dr. James K. Mantleray (Justin Theroux), claims can repair anything about the mind, be it mental illness or heartbreak - draws them and ten other strangers to the facilities of Neberdine Pharmaceutical and Biotech for a three-day drug trial that will, they're assured, with no complications or side-effects whatsoever, solve all of their problems, permanently. Maniac also stars Trudie Styler, Jemima Kirke and Gabriel Byrne.

Created by Patrick Somerville and directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, MANIAC debuts globally Today, only on Netflix. Watch a clip at the link above.

  What a combination
  The Criterion Collection and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment are delighted to confirm the titles to be released on Blu-ray in December 2018.

Also on 10 December comes THE MAGNIFICENT AMBERSONS, Orson Welles’s elegiac follow-up to Citizen Kane, on Blu-ray for the first time in an edition packed with special features.

  FilmFear 2018 Programme Announced [read more]
  Plenty to look out for
  HOME and Film4 are excited to announce the programme for the third annual FilmFear season - six days of horror, extreme cinema, cult favourites and special guests coming to Manchester this October.

Acclaimed Scandi fantasy Border, co-written by the author of Let the Right One In, kicks off the season on 26 Oct and is the first of eight new films from across the globe to screen over the six-day event. A visceral fusion of Nordic noir, social realism and supernatural horror, Border's genre-defying tone is matched in fellow Swedish title Videoman, a mystery-thriller/relationship-drama that will surprise audiences with its tonal shifts, while the chilling horror St. Agatha from celebrated filmmaker Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw II, III, IV) bolsters the emerging ‘Nunsploitation’ genre. Let the Corpses Tan is a ferocious take on Euro Westerns and Italian crime 'Poliziotteschi' genre from Belgian directing duo Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani (The Strange Colour of Your Body's Tears), and genre fans can find some light relief in horror comedy One Cut of the Dead, the cult sensation from Japan that turns the zombie movie on its head. US teen-revenge horror Assassination Nation - a biting black comedy set in a suburban town at the mercy of an online hack attack - will have a special preview before its November release, and the much-hyped Sundance and Cannes smash-hit Mandy, starring a blood-soaked Nicolas Cage alongside Andrea Riseborough and Linus Roache, will be a must-see on HOME's biggest screen.

British talent is also at the fore of the uniquely terrifying Possum, the film-making debut from Matthew Holness, starring Mission Impossible villain Sean Harris and veteran actor Alun Armstrong. Best-known for playing Garth Marenghi in the cult Channel 4 series, writer-director Holness adapted his own short story for the screenplay; Holness will be signing copies of the story as featured in the recently re-issued anthology 'The New Uncanny' before the screening, as well as participating in a post-screening Q&A. Also in attendance at FilmFear is actor-writer-comedian Toby Hadoke who will take part in a Q&A following a special "listening event" of Nigel Kneale's The Road. Based on the legendary lost 1963 TV play and scripted by Hadoke for BBC Radio 4, The Road stars Mark Gatiss and Adrian Scarborough and tickets to the broadcast will be free to anyone with a FilmFear screening ticket.

Screening alongside these hot new titles are three classic horrors for film fans to revisit or discover on the big screen: two films from the horror grandmaster, John Carpenter - conspiracy theory sci-fi They Live and haunting ghost-story The Fog; and Sam Raimi's remarkable debut, The Evil Dead, which brings the season to a ferocious finale on 31 October.

  The Bromley Boys on DVD and digital [read more]
  Can it be a hit if you've never heard of it?
  This summer's hit film THE BROMLEY BOYS, the wonderfully funny, poignant, coming of age comedy, starring Martine McCutcheon, Alan Davies, Jamie Foreman and rising star Brenock O’Connor, will be released by Spirit Entertainment and available on DVD and digital download from 22nd October 2018.

Inspired by the book The Bromley Boys by Dave Roberts, the film tells the story of the author as a 15-year-old and his passion for the worst football team in Britain: Bromley FC - situated in a district of South-East London. Set on the cusp of the 1970s and played out to the nostalgic sights and sounds of the era, including the music, wide collars and dubious moustaches, the film captures the lengths to which a devoted fan will go to save his beloved football club, and the difficulties thrown up when your first love turns out to be the belligerent club chairman's daughter. THE BROMLEY BOYS is a story of the underdog coming good, of first love and the beautiful awkwardness that goes with it.

  The Haunting of Hill House [read more]
  Has to be better than the previous attempt, hasn't it?
  A modern reimagining of Shirley Jackson's iconic novel, The Haunting of Hill House explores a group of siblings who, as children, grew up in what would go on to become the most famous haunted house in the country. Now adults, and forced back together in the face of tragedy, the family must finally confront the ghosts of their past -- some of which still lurk in their minds while others may actually be stalking the shadows of Hill House. Created, directed and executive-produced by horror mastermind Mike Flanagan (Hush, Oculus, Gerald's Game), The Haunting of Hill House is a complex family drama wrapped in a chilling horror story.

Take a tour of the dwelling (if you dare...) in this spooky new trailer (at the link) for Netflix's original horror series, The Haunting of Hill House, launching globally on Netflix Friday, 12th October.
