ON DVD & BLU-RAY

Revenge (2017) Blu Ray (Vertigo Releasing)

This blood-soaked feminist revenge flick mixes artistic beauty with primal savagery in the manner of Stanley Kubrick re-imagining I Spit on your Grave. While it works superbly as pure gory horror, there are plenty of telling, symbolic moments in the imagery.

A Pistol for Ringo & The Return of Ringo (1965) Blu Ray (Arrow)

Giuliano Gemma plays two unconnected Ringos in this pair of overlooked spaghetti westerns directed by Duccio Tessari. The first is highly entertaining, the second is one of the finest and most lyrical that the genre has to offer. Both films also star Fernando Sancho, George Martin, Lorella De Luca and others.
