I don't believe The Fast Show was ever classed as a children's programme and / or shown in an afternoon.

Release date: June 13

"After seeing off hopping corpses in Mr. Vampire, the great Lam Ching-ying (Enter the Dragon, Eastern Condors) faces a new supernatural challenge: someone is using the living dead to smuggle drugs into modern day Hong Kong and only Lam's Officer Feng - policeman and Taoist master - can stop them, proving the power of traditional Chinese magic in the process! Mixing comedy, action and esoteric lore, Magic Cop sees the incomparable Lam at his brilliant best. 88 Films are proud to present this gorgeously restored treat from the golden age of Hong Kong cinema."

'Taxi Hunter' (1993) - Coming to Blu-ray

Release date: June 13

"One of the most infamous movies branded with Hong Kong's 'adults only' Category III rating, Taxi Hunter bravely tackles the under-explored scourge of - er - unprofessional taxi drivers. After his pregnant wife is perishes through the actions of a careless (and callous) cabby, mild-mannered Ah Kin (Anthony 'king of the Cat III's' Wong) declares war on the entire profession - and you don't need 'The Knowledge' to know he won't be leaving a tip... Directed by Herman Yau (who unleashed Ebola Syndrome on an unsuspecting world) 88 Films are pleased to present this important treatise on public transport in a wonderful new blu-ray edition."

I like D-Tox

One to pick up at some point when it's less than seventeen quid.

I m sure I've said it before. D-tox isn't bad like they made out it was when it first came out, it was just at a time when most film reviewers were bad mouthing 80s action stars not called Bruce.
It has the cast and the location for a great version of "and then there were none" just needed a better script.

The problem for me is that it shows the killer in the opening scenes so it's not much of a surprise when the big reveal happens later in the movie.
