Maartin Allcock - OX15

Originally released in 1999 OX15 was the second solo album from British multi-instrumentalist/ record producer Maartin Allcock. And the twelve-track album is a largely mellow, laid back and seemingly largely effortless example of musical genre blending- where Mr Allcock blends 'n' blurs folk, classic rock, country, Adult pop, celtic music, prog rock, world music, and easy listening/ soothing mood music  


Circus - Circus

From the year 1969, this self-titled debut release was the one and only release from Mel Collins( King Crimson, Camel) fronted band Circus, which saw the saxophonist/ flautists and his four-piece offering up a jazz-rock record with some progressive leanings. The album was an even mix of fairly decent covers, and Collins originals. And this is recent(ish) CD release of the album by Talking Elephant records.


She Spread Sorrow - Huntress

Turning the tables on the male hunter trope so prevalent in power electronics/death industrial, She Spread Sorrow's latest, Huntress, tells the tale of a girl obsessed with another woman. Her fascination reaches a fevered pitch until the huntress can take it no more. Is it real? Is it all in her head? Is it a dream? 


Phantom of the Mall: Eric’s Revenge! - Phantom of the Mall: Eric’s Revenge!(Blu Ray)

Phantom of the Mall: Eric’s Revenge! is a late 80’s stab at the slasher genre, and it’s a much more action-packed and soapy camp example of the stalk ‘n’ slash form. The film is set in a recently opened mall, where a badly burnt killer is stalking his victims via the ventilation shafts- with the film features some fairly inventive kills, and enough 80’s cheese to spread on a whole loaf of bread. Here from Arrow Video, both in the UK and Stateside, is a new double-disc Blu Ray release, featuring three cuts of the film, two commentary tracks, and some other extras.


Knocking - Knocking (digital)

Knocking (aka Knackningar) is a Swedish psychological drama/ thriller- focusing on a woman, who has just left a psychiatric ward after a nervous breakdown. She moves into a new flat and starts hearing knocking on her celling and becomes convinced there is a woman being held in one of the flats above her. The film plays with the 'are they mad or not trope', which has been used a fair bit of late, through the film managers to stand well enough on its own- with themes of losing a loved one, loneliness, and the largely isolated lives many of us live- even in the largest of cities. Here from Signature Entertainment, we have a digital release of this 2021 film- which is now available across most digital platforms.


Grey Lady Down - Grey Lady Down(blu ray)

The 1970s certainly was the decade of the disaster movie, be it man-made or when nature attacks. Literally, every situation, form of travel, building, or scenario had the possibility for the destruction, death, and the bonding together of a group of strangers that was the disaster genre tropes. Grey Lady Down took the disaster genre to the bottom of the sea, as a group of folks- including Charlton Heston get stuck in a nuclear sub, waiting for the weight of water to crush them. The film is an effective example of the genre, with the sub setting making for a great claustrophobic and tense location for disaster- the cast is filled out with some big names like Stacy Keach, David Carradine, and Ned Beatty. Here from Powerhouse is a recent blu ray release- featuring a new scan of the picture, a commentary track, a selection of old and new extras.
