The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann – The DVDfever Review – Netflix

The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann is a new documentary series looking at the most high-profile case potential abduction which has ever happened relating to a child from the UK. We get anecdotes and comments about the case from other holidaygoers, journalists, those who have written about it, as well as local residents, including one-time big […]

Burning Men – The DVDfever Review – British Indie movie

Burning Men begins with witnessing the fact that Ray Shearsmith… is dead. Maybe. He’s reciting the tale from beyond the grave, though, if he has left this world. He might not have, but you get that this is being told in flashback, and we’ll get back to this moment when we reach the end. Ray […]

Lost In London – The DVDfever Review – Woody Harrelson

Lost In London was fascinating from the trailer, since it’s a film that was shot in just one-take. It reminded me of the superb 2015’s Victoria, starring Laia Costa, which did the same thing, although in that case, they filmed it 3 times over 3 nights, and the final one was the best take and […]

Slaughterhouse Rulez on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Slaughterhouse Rulez comes across as being set at an old-time grammar boarding school, seemingly as anarchic as a St Trinians movie, but with the inference that not all of the pupils – at this mixed school – make it out alive. Don (Finn Cole, above-right) is starting his first term, there, and has the hots […]

Class Of 1999: Vestron Collector’s Series on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review – Malcolm McDowell

Class of 1999 takes place in a time where schools are overrun with violence, leading to no-go areas which are so gang-controlled that even the police won’t enter, so it’s a bit like Escape From New York. Robot teachers are sent in to take control, and have a memory of “one million megabytes”, which is […]

Leaving Neverland – The DVDfever Review – Michael Jackson documentary

Leaving Neverland, aka Leaving Neverland: Michael Jackson and Me tells us what we’ve all known for years: Michael Jackson sexually-abused children. Or do you think he’s innocent, and that he was the victim in all this? And if that’s the case, then what about others accused of such crimes, yet never caught and have since […]

Departures (aka Then Came You) – The DVDfever Review – Maisie Williams

Departures (also known as Then Came You, the title which is actually listed on IMDB) centres around Calvin (Asa Butterfield – Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children), a hypochrondric young man, working as a baggage handler at the airport, who seems scared with the world (as well as having a fear of flying), and then […]

Three Identical Strangers – The DVDfever Review

Three Identical Strangers begins with the story of Bobby Shafran, who starts college in 1980, at the age of 19, and as soon as he arrived, he’s mistaken for someone called Eddy, which turned out to be one of his triplets, of whom he knew absolutely nothing. Even as he, and friend Michael Domnitz, are […]

Freak Show – The DVDfever Review – Alex Lawther

Freak Show centres around teenager Billy Bloom (Alex Lawther – Ghost Stories), who dares to be different. He wants to cross-dress and gets noticed when he goes to school as Boy George. You can imagine that going down well with those in charge… However, that’s no less out of the ordinary than one of the […]

The Guilty – The DVDfever Review – Jakob Cedergren

The Guilty centres around Danish emergency services call operator Asger Holm (Jakob Cedergren, above), who at first comes across as far from understanding when he gets a call from someone who’s taken drugs and is having a bad trip, saying it’s their own fault. Before long, he gets a mysterious call from Iben (Jessica Dinnage), […]
