Ghost Story

It was one of the most talked about horror films of the early 1980s, thanks, in no small part, for the wealth of Hollywood royalty nearing the end of their careers starring in what was, for many of them, the first and only horror film of their working lives.

And now, for the first time in the UK, Ghost Story arrives on Blu-ray and DVD courtesy of Second Sight on 7 December 2015.

The film, based on the acclaimed Peter Straub bestseller (rated by Stephen King as one of the finest examples of the craft of the late 20th century) stars screen legends Fred Astaire, Melvyn Douglas, Douglas Fairbanks Jr and John Houseman. Three of the four were making their final film appearances ever, with the acclaimed horror proving to be a fitting epitaph for their talents. The film also stars a haunting Alice Krige (Star Trek).

Ghost Story follows a quartet of elderly friends who while away the time in their dotage by telling each other spooky stories and creepy tales as part of their Chowder Society group.

But when one of them meets an untimely end and the rest are afflicted with troubling nightmares, it appears as if past crimes could be catching up with them...

Essex Boys: The Truth

On the morning of 7 December 1995 Britain awoke to a shocking news story. Three men had been found brutally murdered in a Range Rover in Essex.

As the investigation took shape it was clear that this was a gangland killing - one that has become one of the most infamous gangland murders in British history - the murder of the notorious Essex Boys. Now, 20 years on, a brand new feature documentary reveals the truth behind the shocking Rettendon murders and charts the 10 bloodiest years in UK gangland history in Essex Boys: The Truth.

When original 'Essex Boys' Tony Tucker, Pat Tate and Craig Rolfe's reign of fear came to a brutal end in Rettendon, there was a void. The police feared a brutal turf war and they were right. The new generation of Essex Boys was led by Malcolm Walsh, a man with a fearsome reputation who took no prisoners, who, along with partners Damon Alvin, Ricky Percival and Steve 'Nipper' Ellis, became the ultimate Essex firm.

The subsequent turf war led to yet more bloody violence and gangland executions, adding to the myths, lies and injustices. The resulting criminal inquiries point to dubious police practice and colossal judicial incompetence which first saw Darren Nicholls and then nine years later, Damon Alvin, turn supergrass against their former partners. This highly contentious police tactic led to the only instance in UK legal history where a man charged with murder became a witness for both the defence and prosecution in that same murder case, with many believing that the wrong men went to prison.

Former Essex Boy firm member Bernard O Mahoney knows the real story of what happened that night and the ensuing fallout and wants to put to rest the ghosts of those violent years, to see justice served for all and finally, to open the way for the truth to come out.

Written and presented by Bernard O Mahoney (Adapted from his book Essex Boys The Final Word), directed by Christopher Matthews and produced by double BAFTA nominated Revelation Films, Essex Boys: The Truth comes to UK cinemas and On Demand 6 December 2015, then an Amazon Exclusive DVD and eBook release of Essex Boys: The Final Word: No More Myths, No More Lies - The Definitive Story on 14 December 2015, followed by general DVD release on 4 January 2016 from Metrodome.

A Sense Of Freedom

Described as one of the hardest-hitting prison dramas in British screen history A Sense Of Freedom, the striking true story about notorious reformed Glasgow gangster Jimmy Boyle, comes to DVD courtesy of Odyssey.

Charged with murder twice and cleared when barely into his twenties, Jimmy Boyle was Scotland's most feared gangster - a Gorbals 'hard man' notorious for his extreme violence. Then he got a taste of his own medicine when he was sentenced to life in a Scottish prison where the regime, with its punishment beatings and solitary confinement, was every bit as brutal as that on the street. Yet out of this bleak and seemingly dead-end system of crime and punishment came an extraordinary chance of redemption, which drove Boyle to make something positive of his life in ways that neither he nor anyone else could ever have imagined.

Directed by John Mackenzie (The Long Good Friday) and featuring a sensational lead performance from Trial & Retribution star David Hayman, the BAFTA-nominated A Sense of Freedom remains one of the most searing, shocking and thought-provoking prison dramas ever seen and is released on DVD on 23 November 2015, in both its blistering original version and a controversial later dubbed and edited version.
