'Diary Of A Mad Housewife' (1970) - Pre-order available at PowerHouse Films direct - £15:99

Release date: July 18

Superbly directed by Frank Perry (The Swimmer, Play It as It Lays), with a scathing screenplay by Eleanor Perry (David and Lisa, Ladybug Ladybug), Diary of a Mad Housewife tells the story of Tina Balser (Carrie Snodgress, The Fury, Pale Rider) a frustrated housewife trapped in an unhappy marriage to an insufferably controlling, status-obsessed bore (Richard Benjamin, Catch-22). Tina seeks solace in a fling with an abusive lover, the arrogant writer Georg Prager (Frank Langella, Dracula), who treats her like a sex object, leading to therapy and further unhappiness.

A caustic deconstruction of male chauvinism, Diary of a Mad Housewife was a huge critical hit, earning its female lead an Academy Award nomination upon its release. The Perrys’ film is presented here in both its theatrical cut, and a long-unseen alternative TV version."

Following the enormous success of One Million Years B.C. in 1965, Hammer embarked on a series of prehistoric adventures over the next five years, concluding with Creatures the World Forgot. Directed by Don Chaffey – previously responsible for One Million Years B.C., not to mention the Ray Harryhausen classic Jason and the Argonauts – the film swapped dinosaurs for more adult content, starred former Miss Norway and ex-Bond girl Julie Ege (On Her Majesty’s Secret Service), and earned itself an ‘X’ certificate in the process.

Me too
However, I do hope the standalone release of CREATURES doesn’t mean the end of the Hammer boxsets.

It might just be that it doesn't fit with the theme hopefully!

I'm not sure I like Creatures enough for a deluxe package? But then again, I do love that vintage art...

It also might be that Sony don't allow mixing their titles with other studios releases? I know there was some speculation about a 'Lost Worlds' boxset but it woud have meant pairing this with some studiocanal titles.

Maybe Michael Brooke will pop by and clarify....?

Hope it's not the end of the boxsets as they are among my favourite releases!
