I have this soft spot for Sleepwalkers. It was one of the first 18-rated horror films I saw. I rewatched it a few years back, and while it didn't hold up, it had some strong points.

The premise is unique. The villains are vicious but oddly sympathetic. Alice Krige is incredible. And although Garris's direction is a bit flat, the climax wad great. The final shot as Bodicea plays is haunting, and beautiful. The last of a tribe, gone forever.

'Viy' (1967) - Pre-order available from Eureka direct - £19.99

Release date: March 15

"Bursting with startling imagery and stunning practical effects courtesy of directors Konstantin Yershov, Georgi Kropachyov, and perhaps most notably, artistic director Aleksandr Ptushko (the legendary special effects artist whose spectacular stop-motion effects and innovative colour cinematography has seen him referred to as the Soviet equivalent of Willis O’Brien, Ray Harryhausen, and even Mario Bava), VIY has influenced generations of directors for more than half a century.

In 19th century Russia, a seminary student is forced to spend three nights with the corpse of a beautiful young witch. But when she rises from the dead to seduce him, it will summon a nightmare of fear, desire, and the ultimate demonic mayhem.

The Masters of Cinema series is proud to present VIY in its UK debut on Blu-ray from a HD restoration of the original film elements.

Full details:

'Horror Double Feature' (1976 / 1979) - Pre-order available from Eureka direct - £19.99

Release date: March 15

"Are a wave of mysterious deaths on a Native American reservation being caused by killer vampire bats, or a curse from beyond the grave? Featuring special effects work by Carlo Rambaldi (Alien, E.T. the Extra Terrestrial), Nightwing was one of many creature features produced to cash in on the success of Jaws, but director Arthur Hiller (Love Story) also imbues the film with a humanitarian edge. Described in recent years as an “eco-gothic Western”, and “a great exploration of social change and race relations”, Nightwing comes to Blu-ray for the first time ever in the UK.

An ageing medicine man (Academy Award nominee Chief Dan George; The Outlaw Josey Wales) recruits his sceptical grandson (Jan-Michael Vincent; Airwolf, The Mechanic) to aid him in a spiritual battle against evil spirits and black magic. Filmed in the forests of British Columbia to stunning effect, Shadow of the Hawk features a number of eerie and effective sequences of supernatural terror, and Eureka Classics is proud to present the film on Blu-ray for the first time ever on home video in the UK. "


SPECIAL FEATURES
  • O Card slipcase featuring new artwork by Darren Wheeling
  • English SDH subtitles
  • Nightwing – Brand new audio commentary by film historians Lee Gambin and Amanda Reyes
  • Shadow of the Hawk – Brand new audio commentary with film writer Mike McPadden and Ben Reiser
  • Oil and the (Geo)Politics of Blood – Audio essay by John Edgar Browning
  • Trailers
  • A limited edition collector’s booklet featuring essays by film historian Lee Gambin and film scholar and author Craig Ian Mann [2000 copies]

'Pulse' (1988) - Pre-order available from Eureka direct - £15.99

Release date: February 22

"In every second of every day, it improves our lives. And in a flash, it can end them.

In today’s world of modern conveniences, everything we rely on is run by electricity. But what happens if the power we take for granted turns against us? Old man Holger knows. He claims electricity is a living presence, whose voice can only be silenced by getting rid of anything that can hear it. Bill Rockland (Cliff De Young; Shock Treatment, Flight of the Navigator) however, refuses to believe him. It must have been an accident when an electric spark ruptured the gas pipe that nearly killed Bill’s son (Joey Lawrence). And it’s surely a coincidence when his wife (Roxanne Hart) is severely scalded by their electric water heater. But when his own power tools attack him and an electrical fire turns their home into a blazing inferno, Bill realises Holger may have been right after all, and perhaps the time has come to finally pull the plug!

A VHS favourite, Pulse returns to home video on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK as part of Eureka Classics. "
