Sweetie, You Won't Believe It

Berserk, bloody hilarious and not for the faint hearted; Sweetie, You Won't Believe It gets its UK Premiere at FrightFest this weekend, with its UK release slated for early 2022 from 101 Films.

Director Yernar Nurgarliyev brings us a splattering of blood, guts and laughter in an original and dark - yet hilarious - killer Kazakhstan thriller starring Daniar Alshinov and Asel Kaliyeva as bickering husband and wife, Dastan and Zhanna. Desperate for one last weekend of fun before his baby is born and he has to settle down, Dastan rounds up his two best pals for a boys weekend of fishing and fun, but little do they know their plan for a chilled trip to the lake is about to turn into mad and deadly mayhem.

After accidentally witnessing a murder by a group of thugs, the three friends are suddenly on the run to escape their violent clutches and then things turn even wilder. With a mysterious one-eyed man out for blood and a desperate wannabe bride and her pushy father in the mix, the body count starts to rise. Never mind fishing, will Dastan make it out alive and get to the hospital in time to witness the birth of his child?

Filled with bucket loads of blood, sweat and tears of laughter with Sweetie, you Won't Believe it. Absurd and hysterical - not to mention unapologetically brutal - you really won't believe it.




All Creatures Great and Small Series 2 DVD & Complete 1-2 Box Set

The Charming much-loved All Creatures Great and Small, based on the hugely popular novels of James Herriot (aka James Alfred Wight OBE), returns for a second series of veterinary adventures, budding romances, and life in the sleepy town of Darrowby, Yorkshire with its rolling fields, and colourful community.

The first series captivated the nation, ranking as Channel 5's number one British drama of all time and now the much-anticipated series two arrives. Following its run on Channel 5, it comes to DVD alongside the Complete Series 1 & 2 Box set on 22 November 2021, courtesy of Acorn Media International.

We return three months later to follow the trials and tribulations and lives and loves of the locals, surrounded by the beautiful Yorkshire dales, where farmers and vets alike savour a foaming pint at the end of a hard day's work.

After Helen Anderson (Rachael Shenton - Hollyoaks) jilted her intended, Hugh Helton (Matthew Lewis - Harry Potter), at the altar, she, and James (Nicholas Ralph - The Most Reluctant Convert C.S. Lewis) can finally address their feelings for each other. But it can be tricky in such a close-knit community where not everyone takes too kindly to Helen's decision. Prompted by James' and Helen's affections, Siegfried (Samuel West - Darkest Hour), Tristan (Callum Woodhouse - The Durrells) and Mrs Hall (Anna Madeley - Deadwater Fell) also reflect on their places in the world, meanwhile a trip back home to Glasgow forces James to choose between duty and love...

Series One begins in 1937, Britain where we meet James Herriot, a newly qualified animal surgeon who moves to a small-town in Yorkshire to begin his first job with the irritable but kind veterinarian Siegfried Farnon. Once there, he quickly discovers that treating the animals is as much about looking out for their owners: there are plenty of people and animals to care for, challenges to meet, and life-affirming lessons to learn along the way.

All Creatures Great and Small will love this soul-soothing and heart-warming family favourite.




Whitetail

Deep in the American South, flared tempers and warped relationships rear their ugly heads during a heated hunting trip in new thriller Whitetail from director Derek Presley (Cronus, Sheltered) which shoots onto digital 18 October 2021 from Reel 2 Reel Films.

Following a mother's tragic overdose, her husband, brother and son embark on a weekend hunting trip out in West Texas to try and escape their grief. However, things soon take a nasty turn when they encounter a mysterious man who has been shot in the stomach and is clutching a bag full of money.

The trio must contend with questions they didn't expect to have to answer - who shot the man, where did the money come from and how long until the shooter comes back for the cash? As tensions rise between the group on top of the already strong undercurrent of grief, things are about to reach breaking point.

Whitetail is a heart-stoppingly dark survival film that turns the gothic thriller genre on its head.

It's not long before Shepherd discovers that Brokenwood is full of secrets and suspicions...

From mysterious murders, to secret societies, alongside gruesome goings-on, killers lurk between the shadows in the seedy underbelly of this town. Series Seven sees Brokenwood C.I.B's finest, D.S.S. Mike Shepherd and his associates, Detective Kristin Sims, D.C. and Sam Breen (Nic Sampson - The Luminaries) back for more enthralling investigations, joined by the newly appointed D.C.

Help

WITH THE care system at the forefront of the public's minds, as it creaks under the weight of an ageing population, lack of funding and staff and the devastation wrought by a global pandemic, a hard-hitting new drama, Help starring two of Britain's most respected actors Stephen Graham and Jodie Comer, focuses on life in a care home during the early, dark days of Covid 19. This powerful film explores the moving bonds between carer and resident, and the struggle they must face in this unimaginable and unknown world.

Penned by BAFTA award-winner Jack Thorne (His Dark Materials, National Treasure) and directed by BAFTA-winning Marc Munden (The Third Day, Utopia) the drama is set for release on DVD on 11 October 2021, from Acorn Media International, following its transmission on Channel 4.

Set in a Liverpool care home, we meet Sarah (Jodie Comer) (Killing Eve, Doctor Foster), who, after many years of struggling to find work, has found her calling at Bright Sky Homes. Instantly connecting with the residents, she forms a special bond with Tony (Graham - Save Me, This is England), who is in his late 40s, with Early Onset Alzheimer's. Sarah feels like she finally fits in and has a purpose, and the residents feel like they have someone that truly cares.

Then in March 2020, the Coronavirus pandemic hits, and everything is thrown into disarray. Unprepared and ill-equipped, Sarah and her colleagues fight tooth and nail to keep their vulnerable inhabitants safe, but it seems they've been all but abandoned by the powers that be.

A determined Sarah goes to extraordinary lengths to protect those in her care, whose conditions make their suffering and isolation even more traumatic. But the staff's unwavering commitment, compassion and heroic efforts can only do so much, and Sarah is pushed into a dark corner, as she desperately searches for a way out.
