Picked up a few VHS Ex - Rental tapes I got the 1986 comedy Separate Vacations with David Naughton and Jennifer Dale and two Guild Home Video releases (which was a popular distributor here in the U.K with some great releases back in the day) which were Past Midnight with Rutger Hauer and the late Natasha Richardson and lastly the 1989 Rom Com Happy Together with Patrick Dempsey and Helen Slater.


 -


And on Blu Ray I picked up Marathon Man and the 1979 sci-fi adventure Time After Time with Malcolm McDowell which I have never seen before but have read pretty decent reviews on so just hoping it's a good watch plus also two Scream Factory titles which were Tobe Hooper's Invaders From Mars from 1986 and Timebomb with Michael Biehn and Patsy Kensit from 1991.

Picked up a couple of VHS one that I have never seen before and also a couple of Blu Ray's plus some Mini Twiglets (yummy!),on tape I got Skin Deep from Blake Edwards which I have seen way back and believe I enjoyed it and a 1988 Lou Diamond Philips movie Dakota which is a blind buy but it was going so cheap I thought i'd give it a go and if I don't like it it's no big loss!

On Blu Ray I raided the 101 Films sale again and grabbed The Playboys which I have watched a couple of times before and I do enjoy it,I like the setting,story and the cast it's a good film plus also from a sale I picked up the WW2 war classic The Great Escape which I love but strangely have never owned!

I watched The Playboys a few months ago. I stumbled upon it. I think it was on one of those tv stations which plays a lot of indie movies. It was worth a watch. I have not heard of Dakota. Will have to look for it. Thanks for sharing.

Playboy's is not a bad movie and I wouldn't mind visiting Ireland one day as it
Looks very picturesque!

Picked up a couple of DVD's the 1988 horror Deadly Dreams from Code Red DVD which I watched a while back and didn't dislike I thought it was pretty well done with the odd unexpected twist here and there though the whole is he or isn't he dreaming plotline did tend to annoy at times so not entirely perfect!


Bats I also have seen but way back and remember very little from it other than it stars Lou Diamond Philips and in all truth I'm not expecting too much from it but it was cheap and I thought what the heck i'll give it a go it's probably worth a watch and perhaps a few unintentional laughs!

Also grabbed four VHS which have never been released to Blu Ray or DVD three of which were blind buys and they were A Bear Named Arthur an early 90s comedy from Italian director Sergio Martino and the late 80s Cannon Films comedy Surrender starring Michael Caine,Sally Field and Steve Guttenberg (this one I have seen but way back upon its release) also on VHS I got

Low budget Action shenanigans in Da Vinci's War with Joey Travolta,Vanity and Michael Nouri and the 1986 Baboon horror In The Shadows Of Kilimanjaro starring Timothy Bottom's,John Rhys Davies and Irene Miracle.

Picked up a few Clint Eastwood Blu ray's and at a very reasonable price just 4 UK pounds each I got Play Misty For Me,Coogans Bluff and the Beguiled.
Also on Blu and from Mill Creek I purchased Silent Rage and Hardbodies which came with some slightly flimsy but rather cool looking retro VHS slip covers!

And on VHS I picked up a very good condition for its age Ex-Rental big box edition of the ace Silver Bullet starring the late Corey Haim and Gary Busey and lastly I got the CD soundtrack to Electric Dreams.

I picked up the 2014 version Robocop on Blu-Ray at the dollar store. They had quite a few other Blu-Rays, but no others interested me. I've only seen the 1987 Peter Weller version. I haven't picked up any 80's movies from the thrift stores, in a long time.

I picked up a copy of Class Of 1999 myself.. already had The Unholy on the earlier (and identical) US release.
If i had known they'd give it a UK release i probably would have waited.. but, well.. that's how it goes sometimes. [Roll Eyes]

The Unholy comes with some good special features, most memorably a piece on the special effects about this young
FX guy fresh outta high school spending insane amounts of the budget on his sculptures, only to have his work being
replaced by creatures from a more experienced FX crew when they were running behind on schedule.

Not watched The Unholy in a while Johnny but the one thing I remember is the Demon creature at the end and the fact I was nearly ROFL as it was so bad which was strange as the effects up until then had been pretty spot on but overall it's a decent watch and somewhat underatted!

I'm hoping we get Maximum Overdrive to the Vestron collectors series here in the UK and I'm not sure what's happening to Slaughter High (which was at one time slated for release) but would like to upgrade to that on Blu if I ever get the chance!

Among my latest purchases are two truly superb blu-ray box-sets from Arrow :

- Ring ; Complete Collection (the original J-horror favourite, plus Ring 2, Ring 0, and Ring Spiral)

- Blood Hunger ; The Films Of José Larraz (which includes Whirlpool, Vampyres, and The Coming Of Sin)

I'm very happy my copy of the Ring box-set came in, as it (reportedly) sold out pretty damn fast.
Haven't seen the original Ring and the sequel since they were first released on dvd in overly dark
video-transfers with burned-in subtitles.. so it's about time to revisit these creepy atmospheric shockers.

I'm also very eager to see how Arrow's version of Vampyres compares to the older Blue Underground release.

Yeah I just not long picked up the new Halloween which I have seen as I watched it in the theatres and it's certainly not my favourite In the series but still it's pretty decent and I'm hoping it will grow on me a bit more with a second viewing!

Also grabbed erotic thriller In The Cold Of The Night which I have upgraded from my old dvd,Vice Versa from Millcreek and lastly a double feature of Cannonballs 1 and 2 which I did get a little while back but don't think I ever mentioned it on here!

Actually I have posted a picture of the Cannonball Run disc as it's a posts up the page! Silly me!
