Frank Sidebottom The Home of the Retrospective

ON DVD & BLU-RAY

Night of the Creeps (1986) Blu Ray & DVD (Eureka!)

Fred Dekker's directorial debut is an affectionate, gory, predictable but likeable homage to sci-fi, zombie movies, frat boy comedies and umpteen other genres besides. Tom Atkins is the undoubted highlight here as the film noir style detective investigating the mysterious goings-on.

The Old Dark House (1932) Blu Ray & DVD (Eureka!)

Once considered a lost film, this overlooked entry in the filmographies of James Whale and Boris Karloff is an exquisitely atmospheric and playful mix of horror, black comedy and melodrama.

House aka Hausu (1977) dir: Nobuhiko Ôbayashi Blu Ray (Eureka!)

This postmodern, pop art Japanese take on comedy horror emphasises pure audiovisual insanity over substance. It's a film you'll either love or hate. It features a happy-clappy theme song by Godiego, who are also known for their contribution to the cult favourite TV series Monkey.

Blood Feast (1963) Blu Ray & DVD (Arrow)

Herschell Gordon Lewis's innovative gore movie is amateurish but entertaining. Arrow's dual format package makes for an enjoyable epitaph for the man.

Wolf (1994) Blu Ray (Indicator) starring Jack Nicholson

Mike Nichols' classy take on the werewolf genre features some smart writing and fine performances but falls flat when it's trying to be a straight horror film.
