Bite

So graphic that sick bags were handed out at the world premiere, the gut-wrenching gore fest Bite, about one woman's sickening transformation, gets its first UK DVD release in October courtesy of Second Sight Films.

While partying on a bachelorette getaway with her friends, bride-to-be Casey (Elma Begovic - Tear Us Apart) is bitten by a mysterious, unseen bug. On returning home what first appears to be a nasty infection rapidly mutates into something far more sinister as Casey takes on an horrific insect-like transformation.

Shedding skin, vomiting acidic bile, biting off nails and excreting slime drenched eggs all over her newly created nest, Casey must now find flesh to feed on.

As her transformation becomes complete, Casey discovers that everything can change with a single bite.

Written and directed by Chad Archibald (The Drownsman) this fantastically gruesome body-horror will be released on DVD on 10 October 2016.

Based on the classic children's novel by Cecilia Anne Jones, Little Sir Nicholas is a gripping Victorian saga about blood rights, identity and family rivalries. This six-part BBC adaptation co-written by and featuring Oscar winner Julian Fellowes (Downton Abbey), arrives on DVD on 10 October 2016.

Five years on, Lady Tremaine (Rachel Gurney - Upstairs, Downstairs), still stricken by the loss of her son and grandson, advertises across the country for a distant heir to come forward.

The Legend of King Arthur

Andrew Davies' (House of Cards) sumptuous adaptation of the timeless saga, The Legend of King Arthur, makes its home entertainment debut on 10 October 2016 with the complete 1979 series.

Dark Ages wizard Merlin (Robert Eddison - Indiana Jones), weary of the barbarism around him, creates a new order of enlightenment and justice with a youthful Arthur (Andrew Burt - Emmerdale) at its head. Merlin presents Arthur with the magic sword Excalibur to help him defeat the nobles who oppose his rule. But Arthur must also beware his half-sister Morgan (Maureen O'Brien - Doctor Who), a sorceress who has sworn to kill him to avenge her father's death.

As Morgan intensifies her campaign, she uses magic to draw Lancelot (David Robb - Downton Abbey) and Guinevere (Felicity Dean - The Whistle Blower) into a passionate affair. But it is the still more traitorous Mordred (Steve Hodson - Break in the Sun) who will fatally halt Arthur's rule.

Bringing high romance, low treachery and magical adventure via a host of legendary characters and featuring an early appearance by Patsy Kensit (Holby City), this is a fabulous retelling of the gloriously twisting tale.
