No way it should still be an 18 then as Battle Creek Brawl got through as a 15 with a double earclap reinstated. Crazy BBFC fools.

101 resubmitted and it has come through 15 uncut, so that's okay then.

It's their packaging that is misleading. Unless it's a feature rated 15, additional trailers rated 18 type thing.

Ah cool! Yeah that's probably it, or they made up that art before it was reclassified. Either way, good news.

RABID
Released 7th October 2019
Acclaimed horror directors Jen and Sylvia Soska aka ‘The Twisted Twins’ (American Mary) are back with their next nightmare – the bloody, brutal and deranged RABID!


Based on the original film by David Cronenberg, RABID stars Laura Vandervoort (Jigsaw, Bitten), Benjamin Hollingsworth (Cold Pursuit) and Phil ‘C.M. Punk’ Brooks (Girl on the Third Floor).

After aspiring fashion designer Rose suffers a disfiguring traffic accident she undergoes a radical and untested stem-cell treatment. The experimental transformation is a miraculous success, transforming her into a ravishing beauty. But she soon develops an uncontrollable sexual appetite, resulting in several torrid encounters, which sees her lovers become rabid carriers of death and disease. As the illness mutates and the contagion spreads out of control, all hell breaks loose as the infected rampage.


Extras

The Quiet Revolution: State, Society and the Canadian Horror Film – Part Two: An Emerging Revolution: New Territories & Diverse Fears, a brand new feature-length documentary exploring the social contexts behind Canadian horror cinema from filmmaker and author Xavier Mendik (exclusive to Blu-ray)

Got an email regarding Rabid today. Dvd is £8 delivered. Quite fancy this one.

Thought the Soska Sisters American Mary was great.

Presumably you have the 1977 Cronenberg 2-disc version, released by 101 films

Part 2, which runs for just over 52 minutes, can be found on the 101 films Blu-Ray release of the Soska Sisters remake

I don't know if it's on the DVD version as well

It isn't sadly. There are bonus features, just not that.

Has anyone see Rabid yet and is it worth picking up ?

Some on Letterboxd have said it's far too gory - and suggested that was a negative.

Not for me it ain't. :skull:

It’s really good but I probably prefer shivers. Worth picking it up if you can get a bargain.

Haven’t seen that either :lol:

Only films of his that I’ve seen are Scanners, Videodrome, The Dead Zone, The Fly, Dead Ringers and Crash

Some big gaps to fill, Rik. Like Justin, i really recommend Shivers.

I know, just not got round to watching that many of his films

Justin101 28th October 2019 06:03 PM

Shivers, Rabid and The Brood are all very different to Scanners/Videodrome onwards. Definately try to give them a go at some point :) All three of them are good but they are "out-there" so it's difficult to say go buy them if it's a blind buy :lol: Try Music Magpie for some cheap used DVDs :D

Rob4 28th October 2019 06:07 PM

i'd give a vote for Shivers too, although there isn't a Cronenberg I don't like besides his early experimental works.

Shivers for me doesn't get enough due. I'd rank it with Night of the Living Dead and Texas Chain Saw Massacre as a game changer.

Nostalgic 28th October 2019 07:40 PM

Love Cronnenberg, Shivers, Rabid & The Brood were constantly on bbc 1 or 2 when i was a teenager, my brother taped them, i didn't "get it" at the time but could tell they were important, then i saw Existenz at the cinema & was blown away! Sadly nobody else in the universe seemed to have seen it until the internet turned up lol!

I definately think he changed the direction of horror cinema, shame part 2 of e doc is only on e blu as I've just got the dvd (obviously, film could be terrible, lets be honest!).

We'll see......

Cronenberg my favourite director,


I've tried with cosmopolis and map to the stars and just couldn't get into either ,
As for game changer its Scanners and Videodrome to me .

I thought Maps was excellent but agree with you on Cosmopolis.

So Rabid on 101 is rated 15, on Arrow it's 18....any difference or just re-rated?

I've got Shivers, Rabid, The Brood out all stacked up. On a seperate pile I have Videodrome & Existenz. Fly boxset (Australian blu, not sure how scream factory can improve on this) is in loft, think i'll have a Fly-A-Thon in the near future....:woot:

'Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone' - Blu-Ray pre-order at Amazon UK - £13.61

Release date - February 17, 2020

"Cult sci-fi from 1983 starring Peter Strauss, Molly Ringwald and Ernie Hudson, released on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK.

On a distant planet inhabited by mutants, two bounty-hunters race to rescue three Earth female captives from the clutches of an evil mutant warlord."



However, there is no mention on whether this is going to be the 2D version, the 3D version or both

Susan Foreman 5th December 2019 04:34 PM

'Sign O' The Times' - Blu-Ray pre-order at Amazon UK - £13.61

Release date - January 13, 2020

"Prince and his band bring his Grammy Nominated Album of the Year "Sign O' The Times" to life in one of the greatest concert films ever made. This ground-breaking movie is punctuated with specially-filmed, dramatic vignettes and captures Prince at the peak of his musical powers. "


nosferatu42 5th December 2019 04:45 PM

I really like Spacehunter it's a quite silly but more juvenile mad max style sci fi cheesefest featuring Micheal Ironside as the main bad guy.:woot:

If i didn't already own a region 1 release i'd be all over this.

I might pick up Runaway though that's another enjoyable cheesy film that i haven't seen for years.

Good to see these VHS era obscurities being released over here finally.:cool:

Rob4 5th December 2019 05:00 PM

not seen any rumours of Spacehunter 3D restoration. Surprised Indicator passed this one up?

Stephen@Cult Labs 5th December 2019 07:26 PM

The US blu of Spacehunter is cropped. Unless this is a new restoration (even if it isn't in 3D), and the same cropped version, it's a pretty pointless release.
