Hammer Volume Three: Blood & Terror
blu-ray review | 14 Aug 2018
The four films in this third Blu-ray box set of little seen films from Hammer Studios are not without their issues, but all are of interest and one is a largely unsung gem. Slarek immerses himself in another wonderfully presented and feature-rich release from Indicator.

The Third Murder
The Third Murder
blu-ray review | 4 Aug 2018
In what at first seems like a change of direction, Japanese maestro Kore-eda Hirokazu delivers a compelling legal drama that also turns out to be an intriguing study of family disfunction. Slarek finds himself hooked by its low-key approach and impressed with the Arrow Academy Blu-ray.
