"Angela (Sigrid Thornton) is a young hair-dresser having a hard time making ends meet. Looking for a fast way to earn some extra money, she accepts a job working as a model. Soon, however, she gets the feeling that someone is watching her; following her...stalking her. Is it her deranged ice cream truck driving ex boyfriend? A psychotic admirer? Or someone more sinister... As Angela delves further into her new and sordid lifestyle, she finds herself growing closer and closer to the deadly truth.

Director Simon Wincer's (Harlequin) slow burn psychological thriller, Snapshot, melds character drama with moments of shocking violence and nail biting suspense. Featuring atmospheric scope photography by Vincent Monton (Road Games) and a pounding soundtrack from Brian May (Mad Max), Snapshot is a forgotten piece of Ozploitation and is proudly presented on Blu-ray by 88 Films, newly restored from its original 35mm camera negative."

I swear that I've seen this on one of those Movies 4 Men type channels also I thought that this film was from the 80's or 90's, didn't think it was from 1979.

The HK action stuff seems better than the HK swords stuff (though I'm no expert). I'm not sad to see Arrow nab the Shaw Bros rights as it never appealed personally. Just cant / couldn't get into the 88 Asia range really. Peking Man was ok, Oily Maniac and Hex were disappointing for me.

The Arrow Death Star has stamped on the 88 Asia party by the looks of it. Only The Woo can save the day...
If you're not into Kung Fu films the 88 Asia range is pretty much a no no. Kung Fu I would say most folk either love or hate, very little middle ground.

The ones you mentioned Oily Maniac, Hex etc I don't think I could manage to sit through. Not for me. Same goes for the swordplay, heavy wire work stuff, I used to be able to watch it but it doesn't do much for me these days.

HK action cinema of the 80s, early 90s is superb though. Doesn't get much better than The Killer, A Better Tomorrow and Hard Boiled.

Agreed. I'd also highly recommend 88's Heroes Shed No Tears. I know Woo had issues making it, but it's a terrific "those stunts look like people got hurt" epic. Theres definitely a gap in the market here.

In a side note, is Story of Ricky any good? I've heard some people say its hilarious, others that it's a bit much. Although I never got killing birds etc, their slipcase/mini book setup did look very nice and Ricky looks similar.

Also, what the hell is Robotrix? Is it any good?

If you enjoy the excesses of 'Bad Taste' / 'Braindead' era Peter Jackson or the over-the-top gore of 'Re-Animator' then you should like it. However, if you think that 'Citizen Kane' is histories greatest film, or that 'My Dinner With Andre' is the most profound movie ever made...I would avoid it!

The Nun And The Devil

Release date: August 2

88Films RRP: £25:00

"Directed by Domenico Paolella (The Prey/The Story of a Cloistered Nun), The Nun and the Devil AKA Le Monache di SantíArcangelo is a headily erotic tale of seduction and persecution detailing the sinful practices which spill out of a 16th century convent. When the psychotically ambitious Sister Julia (Anna Heywood) vies to take the place of a dying Mother Superior by any means possible, other inmates start to lose their way, indulging in heterosexual flings and lesbian coupling. But things take a nasty turn when the nuns are subjected to a violent inquisition and their existence becomes one of torture and degradation.

Made just two years after Ken Russellís notorious The Devils (1971), this 1973 film sought to offer a corruption of the innocent style plot which monopolised on the short-lived wave of nunsploitation features, incorporating graphic horrors, soft-pornography and historical drama. Loosely based on authentic records, this sordid tale of religion and power will delight lovers of extreme Italian exploitation cinema."
