ON DVD & BLU-RAY

The Changeling (1980) dir: Peter Medak Blu Ray (Second Sight)

This underrated Canadian-made supernatural chiller makes great use of subtle scares, a labyrinthine mansion set and George C. Scott's commanding turn as a bereaved father. The wealth of extras here makes this an essential disc.

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.

This 1979 horror hit doesn't stand up unless discussed in context with its back story.

Prison (1987) Blu Ray (88 Films)
