ON DVD & BLU-RAY

Xtro (1982) Blu Ray: Limited Edition Box Set (Second Sight)

Harry Bromley Davenport's cult sci-fi horror amounts to a disjointed collection of weird and gruesome scenes. For all that, it is good fun. If you've ever wanted to see a woman gruesomely give birth to a fully-grown man and an Action Man figure come to life to murder a neighbour, then this is for you.

The Super Inframan (1975) Blu Ray (88 Films)

This Shaw Brothers-produced homage to the Japanese tokusatsu superhero subgenre makes up for its rubbery monsters and lack of characterisation with well-staged fights and tonnes of imagination.

Super Inframan can handle himself in a fight!

Amazon Women on the Moon (1987) Blu Ray & DVD (101 Films)

A series of star-studded comedic skits from five directors (including Joe Dante and John Landis) which mocks the experience of flicking through channels on late-night TV. While some are funnier than others, they are all over so quickly that the inconsistency doesn't matter so much.

Starcrash (1978) Blu Ray (Stratx)

Luigi Cozzi’s cheap, batshit-crazy Star Wars rip-off starring Caroline Munro is so insanely inane that it’s in its own class of fascinating folly.

Outland (1981) Blu Ray & DVD & Digital Download (Warner)

A rather average western set in space - saved by the visuals, action and performances.

2019: After the Fall of New York (1983) Blu Ray (88 Films)

This post-apocalyptic Italian cheese is enjoyable if approached in the right frame of mind - and even has a few decent elements.

​Journey to the Far Side of the Sun (1969) Blu Ray (Universal)

Visually impressive but rather dull and dated Gerry Anderson sci-fi adventure lacks extras.
