A Canadian-produced film from 2018 that finally finds its way onto DVD thanks to the forever-amazing 101 Films, Parallel is a highly original and intriguing film that transcends from an adventurous sci-fi into a dystopian one - remarkably well too.
Running at 71 minutes, semi-disgraced writer-director, James Toback, has managed to add new meanings to the term, “pretentious,”, with his latest (and hopefully last) film, An Imperfect Murder aka The Private Life of a Modern Woman.
From Signature Entertainment, the Irish thriller, Here Are the Young Men, is headed for Digital platforms on 30th April. This is what Signature had to say:
In what could very well be the first remake of a “Die Hard on/in a ___” film, Welcome to Sudden Death, featuring Michael Jai White under the direction of Dallas Jackson, is the almost scene-by-scene remake of 1995’s Van Damme classic, Sudden Death.
From Lionsgate UK, Hellraiser: Revelations - the ninth of the series - sees itself with disc and digital releases for the first time in the UK, ten years after its initial release.
A futuristic, yet frightening film, I Am Toxic (Soy toxico) is a Spanish-language dystopian sci-fi film set in 2101 Buenos Aires. From Pablo Pares, this post-apocalyptic adventure is painfully gruesome in both its imagery and context.

In the instance of Kitty Mammas, a camera crew follows a literal mad scientist – Dr. Han (Paul Sun-Hyung Lee) – as he leads a clinical trial in which four women give birth…to kittens.
A routine, yet mildy explosive film, The Doorman presents a story of redemption as a fallen hero strives to protect her family against the criminal pursuit of thieves.
With enough twists to put Chubby Checker to shame, Michael Caissie’s Hunter’s Moon is barking full of terror, sleaze and creepiness, but not much blood and guts.
