Ordered Ultraviolet - no, not the crappy film - the TV series (6 eps) from 1998. I remember liking this a LOT when I watched it (was it channel 4...?) so looking forward to revisiting the 'leeches' :D

Dario Argento's INFERNO (Blue Underground, R0) arrived this morning. I'll watch it doubled with Suspiria close to the time we get Mother Of Tears (and I think Mother Of Tears is a much better title than The Third Mother).

Picked up the Robocop box set in the hmv sale. I've never seen 3 before - I imagine its horrible if the drop in quality from one to two continues at the same rate.

There's a postal strike on right now - so imagine my surprise when the 2-disc R0 issue of THE BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE showed up this morning... Haven't had time to watch it yet though, or even unseal it.

Managed two pick up to DVD's up here in the Arctic Tundra which aren't out in the UK yet:

Black Sheep - it may have been straight to DVD here. 9.10 Pounds.

Backwoods - Spanish horror-thriller starring Gary Oldman and Paddy Considine. 3 pounds.

Also bought two Wallender DVD's (based on Henning Mankell's detective novels - started off as TV-movies, but that last few got cinema releases) and a Ilsa - She Wolf of the SS boxed set. Again this was under a tenner.

Will try and track down Taxi 4 and just noticed that there was a TV series based on Ake Edwardson's Inespector Winter series of novels, so hopefully a boxed set is available. Additionally I found out that a Finnish indie zombie film came out a couple if years ago - Winter of the Dead.

An update - today I discovered a shop called DVD Fanaatii (I won't bother translating that) and bought the following:

Trauma Finnish version of the Giallo classic

The Beyond again from the same Finnish company - they are releasing a series of uncut Giallo, Zombie and Cannibal classics.

Two Evil Eyes the UK Anchor Bay version.

If I can fit any more DVD's into my suitcase (as well as the 10 CD's I bought) I'll go back and buy more of the Giallos and a Camnnibal movie boxed set.

Cannibal Holocaust Ultrabit Uncut Collectors version off eBay. Never seen it all through, or uncut. Was pretty impressed/shocked.

Also bought around 15, yes 15! DVDs reviewed by the eatmybrains guys in their Zombie Club.
Having their review page open in one window and Amazon Market Place '1-Click purchase' in another is a lethal combination for the credit card!

I picked up Abel Ferrara's Body Snatchers remake for £1.99 yesterday - no extras, but it's a great film (especially seeing it in widescreen for the first time after only having a VHS copy up until now) and I imagine is better than the latest remake The Invasion which opens on Friday.
First things first, stay calm.

Couldn't resist another visit and bought What Have You Done To Solange and Sleepless. These were imports for nine quid each. Was tempted to buy a George Romero boxed set, The Burning and Maniac but decided enough was enough.
