The Terror Series 1 Blu-ray and DVD

Exec-produced by Ridley Scott, horror-period-drama The Terror features a fantastic line-up of British acting greats including BAFTA winner Jared Harris (Chernobyl, The Crown) and Golden Globe nominee Tobias Menzies (The Crown, Game of Thrones), as the crew of a real life Royal Naval expedition in 1847 that ventures deep into the Arctic. Following its run on BBC Two, this gripping thriller with a horror edge is set for its Blu-ray, DVD and digital debut on 3 May 2021 from Acorn Media International.

Based on Dan Simmons' best-selling novel, the 10-part series has a Rotten Tomatoes score of 93%, and has been lauded as 'A fascinating step forward for the survival-horror genre...genius' (The Atlantic).

1847, the crew of a real life Royal Naval expedition led by three captains, Sir John Franklin (Ciaran Hinds - Game of Thrones, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), Francis Crozier (Harris) and James Fitzjames (Menzies), is sent to find the Arctic's fabled treacherous Northwest Passage, but instead discovers a monstrous polar bear-like predator, a cunning and vicious Gothic horror that stalks the ships in a desperate game of survival.

However, it soon becomes clear that that's just the beginning of their troubles. As things worsen and civilised behaviour disintegrates in favour of survival at any cost, the crew must simultaneously battle the elements, the supernatural and eventually - themselves. The captains make contact with a mute Inuit woman, Lady Silence (Nive Nielsen - The New World, Togo), who lives as an outcast from her tribe but still follows their old religion...can they trust her to help them, or will she only add to The Terror?




Deutschland '89 and Deutschland '83, '86 & '89 Complete DVD Box Set

FOLLOWING THE unparalleled success of Deutschland '83 and '86, which critics hailed as the start of a golden age for German TV, comes the hugely anticipated third instalment of the gripping series, Deutschland '89. Alongside programmes like the much-lauded Babylon Berlin, a fourth series of which is in the making, the timing is perfect for the next instalment of this cool, super stylish thriller. It is set to arrive on digital from 24 April and on DVD on 26 April 2021 from Acorn Media International alongside a stunning Deutschland '83, '86 & '89 Complete DVD Box Set.

Deutschland '89 takes us to the era-defining fall of the Berlin Wall on 9 November 1989 and the return of superspy Martin Rauch (Jonas Nay - Line of Separation) who must deal with the consequences it brings. The peaceful revolution has thrown his world into turmoil. He and his fellow agents at the HVA (East German Foreign Intelligence) are reeling. Their government has collapsed, their organisation is in chaos and their futures are uncertain, at best. How to play the next hand? Join Big Brother at the KGB? Go West and work for an enemy agency? Use international contacts to begin a new career? Or run off to paradise with hoarded gold? Our heroes need to reinvent themselves in the face of a new world order.

Deutschland '83 saw UK viewing figures in excess of 2.5 million, exceeding that of the seminal Nordic noir hit The Killing and putting Germany at the forefront of must watch television. This epic coming-of-age story is set against real events, culture wars and the political realities of Germany in the early 1980s and sees Jonas Nay (Line of Separation) as a spy at the centre of this suspenseful Cold War thriller. The series also features an era defining 1980s pop soundtrack that hits all the right nostalgic buttons (99 Red Balloons anyone?).

Deutschland '86 catapults audiences into the tumultuous political landscape of 80s East Germany. We join Martin Rauch (Nay) in 1986 and East Germany is broken, Perestroika is real, terrorism plagues Europe, the AIDS crisis intensifies and the struggle against apartheid rages on. Banished for his sins in 1983, Rauch wallows in limbo until his Aunt Lenora (Maria Schrader - Aimee & Jaguar, The City and the City) conscripts him into her plan to drum up hard currency abroad. They set off on an adventure through Africa, Western Europe and finally home to East Germany. Can Mafioso-style capitalism save communism just in the nick of time?

Experience a seminal historical event, along with the style, sounds and politics at the end of a memorable decade, through the eyes of a superspy in the riveting Deutschland '89 and revisit Martin Rauch's journey up the ranks in Deutschland '83, '86 & '89 Complete DVD Box Set.

Dawn Of The Dead 4K UHD Release

After the huge success of its lavish Limited Edition box sets released in Autumn 2020, the dead are preparing to walk the earth once more as Second Sight announces the release of the definitive restored versions of George A Romero's zombie classic Dawn Of The Dead in standard editions on 22 March 2021.

The standard editions of this beautifully restored, comprehensive edition of the seminal horror, feature three different versions of the film, along with a fourth disc of special features across two separate formats Dawn Of The Dead 4K UHD and Dawn Of The Dead Blu-ray.

Acclaimed by fans and critics alike, these presentations offer completely restored versions of the film, each including the original theatrical cut, the extended "Cannes" cut and the Argento cut, making it the most comprehensive release ever of the film acknowledged to be one of the greatest horror movies of all time. Each version has a different commentary track, with the theatrical cut offering two.

The bonus disc of special features is packed with exclusive, new material as well as archive interviews, including the previously unreleased The Lost Romero Dawn Interview. Others include a tour of the shopping mall location, a look at its special effects and more.

The film originally arrived 10 years after the seminal Night of the Living Dead and ushered in a new era of zombie films. It showed Romero once again ahead of the curve, mixing biting political satire with state-of-the-art-gore for a genre defining masterpiece that packs as much of a punch today as it did 40 years ago.

With a zombie epidemic escalating, a small band of survivors seek refuge in that shrine to capitalism, the shopping mall. But the undead, still possessed by an instinctive desire to consume, have had the same idea... What follows is a nail-biting thrill-ride and fight to survive.

Oh, and watch out for those helicopter blades!
