Default Weekly Comp - Phenomena (Do-Do-Do-Dodo) - 27/02/2011


Happy sunday!

Well this week's prize is yet another brilliant Arrow release and an Argento one to boot. Yes, it's the one, the only:




Do-Do-Do-Dodo-Do-Dodo-Do -Dodo-Do Dodo-Dodo-Do-Do-Dodo-Do

And for those who have no idea what I'm on about:

Right, here's all the juicy details for this week's prize:

Label: Arrow Video
Release date: 7th March 2011
Release type: DVD, Blu-ray
Certificate: 18
Pricing: DVD 17.99, Blu-ray 24.99
Genre: Horror
Director: Dario Argento
Stars: Jennifer Connelly, Donald Pleasence


Master of Italian horror Dario Argento is joined by Jennifer Connelly and Donald Pleasence for a gory 1980s classic in Phenomena, a terrifying slice of fear cinema that mixes extreme violence, pounding metal music, a vicious chimp wielding a scalpel and enough buzzing insects to choke an entire school.

Poor sleepwalking Jennifer Corvino (Connelly) doesn’t fit in at her boarding school and her uncanny ability to control insects isn’t helping her popularity. With the aid of a local entomologist (Pleasence), can she use her psychic insect skills to find the killer who’s leaving her fellow pupils in bloody pieces?

Argento piles on the bloody kills and surreal nightmares as the deafening buzz of a million bugs shatters your eardrums in one of the most demented body-horror movies ever produced.

Phenomena (cert. 18) will be released on DVD (17.99) and Blu-ray (24.99) by Arrow Video on 7th March 2011.
