Land, Jim, Poundland :)

But now you say it, I wonder what they've got in Poundstretchers - I still need "Suspiria" :lol:

Latest discovery, in one branch of Poundland, "Demons", produced by Argento and directed by Lamberto Bava. I bought the "Demons/Demons 2" box set a few years back, and this is a pretty good film, and a bargain for only £1.

I take it that it's the Norwich Poundland you've visited Pete? I picked up "The Bird With the Crystal Plumage", "Profondo Rosso", and "Cat O'Nine Tails" from there this morning, so cheers for the recommendation. Couldn't find the other titles though.

The only place I've seen "Demons" is in Yarmouth Poundland. "Phenomena" I picked up in Dereham, but I'm pretty sure I saw it in Norwich. They have a DVD section at the front of the store, but also a dedicated Halloween section at the rear, so did you look in both places?

Found this box set on Amazon:-

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Dario-Argento-U ... 669&sr=1-2

As they're pretty much the same films (though "Demons 2" hasn't appeared yet), I'm guessing Poundland picked up a job lot.

No more mentions of pound retail emporia please unless a specific example of the class pays for the privilege.

And, though Halloween is long gone, Poundland are still pushing cheap horror DVDs.

Just been to the Dereham branch and found all four Argento titles mentioned above, plus "Demons" and the until now unsighted "Demons 2".

Corman get it ;)

My poundland purchase today is "A Bucket of Blood" directed by Roger Corman.

"Inside every artist lurks...a madman!"

"He killed so that his art could live..."

Shot in five days, this is going to be fun.

Oh, I got that one a few years back on a disk with "House on Haunted Hill" and "The Ghoul", three films for £1.25 or therabouts.

You are soooo going to be sorry (at least I had the others as a consolation prize).

I'm not expecting it to be great, but surely worth a £1? Don't say I've spent my inheritance for nothing?!

Well he does have some fun sending up beatniks and modern art, if that's any help.

There's another Corman that I got cheap on DVD which is just about the worst film I have ever watched, but I can't remember what it was called, other than that maybe there was Sea in the title. Selective amnesia is a good thing.

The term is relative.

But I will admit to occasionally being partial to Vincent Price's total hamminess :P

Bucket Of Blood is great!
Honest... it's a cornerstone of the Corman legend, and Dick Miller is great, too.

Back to Argento, though, and something that won't be £1, any time soon, is the re-mastered HD edition of Suspiria, released on blu-ray, 18th January.
