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 […]

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 […]

Parents: Vestron Collector’s Series on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review – Randy Quaid

Parents is set in the heart of suburbia where everyone lives in a huge house, and aspires to an affluent lifestyle. However, in moving to a new school, the first thing young Michael Laemle (Bryan Madorsky) tells his new class is how to boil a cat alive… so he’s making friends fast(!) Well, he just […]

Hunter Killer on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Hunter Killer – I can’t say it’s ‘Die Hard on a submarine’, since (a) it’s not, and (b) that was claimed by the so-so Under Siege in 1992. You don’t watch Gerard Butler action films for their Oscar-winning scripts, but for the bangs and crashes. And both Olympus Has Fallen and London Has Fallen were […]

Climax – The DVDfever Review – Gaspar Noé

Climax begins with an opening dance number, to a remix of Cerrone’s Supernature, which turns into an incredibly well-choreographed spin around the dance floor for everyone involved, so yeah, sod The Greatest Dancer on BBC1, since this is what you should be watching if that’s what you’re into. However, after three days of rehearsal, it’s […]

Blindspotting on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Blindspotting centres around Collin (Daveed Diggs), who has completed a 2-month sentence in jail after what happened when he worked as the bouncer for a bar (which you’ll discover as you watch the film), and is now going out on a one-year probation period. We then fast-forward in time to when he has just three […]

Mile 22 on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Mile 22 is a film I particularly looked forward to last year, since it was the fourth time director Peter Berg had worked with Mark Wahlberg, and they had a fantastic track record with Lone Survivor, Patriots Day and, particularly, Deepwater Horizon, which was astounding on the big screen (as well as deafening). Alas, this […]

The Predator on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

The Predator is a film which I was led to believe followed on directly from the 1987 original with Arnie, and it doesn’t. Some time has passed since then, so I can only assume we’re in the present day. About that first movie, and I’m in a minority as I much prefer Predator 2, released […]
