Eureka Entertainment’s Blu-ray box set contains “Troll”, “Troll 2” and “Best Worst Movie”, a documentary about the making of the second film. The set is a serious contender for the oddest release ever, not least because “Troll” and “Troll 2” are completely unrelated films. Banding them together almost seems unfair, but I am not sure which film is more hard done by – the 80s VHS schlock horror or the allegedly ‘so bad it is good’ sequel.

Troll - The Complete Blu-ray Collection

In “Troll”, the Potter family move into an apartment block beset by a magical troll whose devious plan is to turn every tenant into a bizarre, sprouting jungle infested by demonic creatures. “Troll 2” tells the tale of the Waits’ family’s move to a place in the country, only to discover that the entire town is occupied by goblins who trick people into eating contaminated green food that turns the consumer into gunky goblin food.

Revenge - available now on Video on DemandRichard and Jen travel by helicopter to a remote but lavish villa in the desert, only to have their passionate break interrupted by a couple of men heavily armed with hunting gear. Richard (Kevin Janssens – Vermist) reveals he knows the men and was planning to go hunting after Jen (Matilda Anna Ingrid Lutz – “Rings”) had returned home. After a drunken night round the pool, one of the visitors assaults Jen and events spiral ever more horribly out of control.

“Revenge” is one of those films that is quite hard to review without revealing spoilers, but then the title and the publicity shots have that tied up nicely. Essentially, the men try to kill Jen and seriously regret not finishing the job! Jen becomes some kind of super woman, part Lara Croft, part The Bride from the “Kill Bill” movies. What ensues is a very violent, bloody and entertaining game of cat and mouse where the roles switch several times. The phrase ‘guilty pleasure’ is certainly applicable.

Jackie Chan's Police Story 1 and 2 on Blu-rayTom Cruise is currently wowing cinema audiences with his feats of bravado in “Mission: Impossible - Fallout”, and whilst the scale of his stunts might leave viewers in awe, his broken ankle pales into insignificance compared to Jackie Chan’s copious injuries sustained throughout his career. For example, in “Police Story” and “Police Story 2”, newly released on Blu-ray, these include spinal damage and a dislocated pelvis.

This new hard-cased box set features stunning 4K restorations of two of Chan’s best-loved movies, allowing us to experience some of his best action scenes and moments of whacky humour in super-sharp HD. Not content with writing, stunt coordinating, acting in and directing the films, Chan also sings the theme tune (watch out Dennis Waterman). A selection of different cuts of both films headlines some quality bonus content.

Flesh + Blood - out now on dual format Blu-ray and DVDThe setting is Western Europe in 1501. A small band of roguish mercenaries led by a fearless warrior called Martin (Rutger Hauer – “Blade Runner”, “Sin City”) seek revenge against some back-stabbing noblemen. Seizing control of the local lord’s castle and capturing his son’s young bride-to-be, Martin and his mob think they are on top of the world until a devastating counter-attack is launched.

Dutch director Paul Verhoeven (“Robocop”, “Starship Troopers”) displays much of his trademark violence, nudity and often grim sense of humour in this action romp from 1985. Originally censored in the UK, Eureka’s combined DVD and Blu-ray release presents the full, uncut version of the film, along with a heap of extra features and content.

Birdman of Alcatraz - out now on dual format Blu-ray and DVD“Birdman” is a biopic about the fascinating and remarkable life of Robert Stroud. Stroud (1890-1963) was a pimp jailed for murdering an abusive client, and who narrowly escaped death row after also murdering a prison guard. Resigned to live out the rest of his days in solitary confinement, Stroud found his true calling when he rescued a stranded baby bird and nurtured it to adulthood, going on to become a leading authority on avian diseases.

Burt Lancaster (“From Here to Eternity”, “The Train”) stars as Stroud, with Karl Malden (“On the Waterfront”, “Meteor”) as Harvey Shoemaker, the by-the-book prison warden at Leavenworth (Stroud’s first prison), Telly Savalas (Kojak, “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service”) as fellow con Gomez, Neville Brand (“Stalag 17”, “Tora! Tora! Tora!”) as a prison guard and Thelma Ritter (“Rear Window”, “All About Eve”) as Stroud’s possessive mother.

Fanged Up - on DVD and digital HD“Fanged Up” is a British horror-comedy starring Daniel O’Reilly (aka social media personality/comedian Dapper Laughs). O’Reilly plays Jimmy Ragsdale, a laddish oaf who is imprisoned after accidentally starting a mass brawl in a night club. Jimmy expects to be released in a couple of days so is not overly phased by his predicament, at least not until he realises the prison staff are nearly all vampires led by Governor Payne (Steven Berkoff – “Octopussy”, UFO).

To fend off the vamps, Jimmy teams up with Dr. Makepeace (Danielle Harold – EastEnders), who happens to be an ex-flame of his along with cons including a hulking Russian called Victor (WWE star Stu Bennett – “Dead Man Down”), Shifty (Vas Blackwood – “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels”) and a strange monk (Stephen Marcus – “Ninja Assassin”). Lauren Socha (Misfits) plays the Payne’s assistant.

The Endless - out on Digital HD, Blu-ray and DVDAfter receiving a mysterious video tape invite to an ‘Ascension’, two brothers decide to drop in on a cult they abandoned ten years ago. Aaron (Aaron Moorhead) is depressed and wants to see old friends at the cult’s Camp Arcadia; Justin (Justin Benson) is much more wary and sceptical about the organisation. They plan to only stay one day and one night but are swiftly drawn in by the group’s friendly, seemingly innocent nature.

The longer the brothers stay, the weirder the happenings they witness such as impossible magic tricks, bullets bouncing off thin air and the fact that no-one in the cult appears to have aged since they left. What is the ‘Ascension’? Is it a mass suicide as Justin fears or something more benign, and what is the anticipated outcome? The lads can be sure of one thing: If they leave, they will never discover the truth.

The Defiant Ones - out now on dual format Blu-ray and DVDThis Oscar-winning drama stars Tony Curtis (The Persuaders!) and Sidney Poitier (“In the Heat of the Night”) as convicts on the run. Joker (Curtis) is a jaded white man who hates being subservient. Cullen (Poitier) is a proud black father who lashed out when his farm was being repossessed. Bitterly divided but shackled together, their common goal is to outrun their pursuers.

“The Defiant Ones” is a tense if quite predictable tale. Joker and Cullen are like opposing magnets constantly repelling each other but locked together. Simmering animosity threatens to bubble over into violence any moment, especially when their energy-sapping journey through swamps and scrubland offers nothing but constant frustration.
