Robert Englund's INKUBUS comes to UK DVD this Feb.

The nice chappies over at Trinity X were kind enough to supply me with a screener copy of the new horror film "Inkubus" to take a look at. Marking the directorial debut of Glenn Ciano, the film stars robert Englund as a serial killer, who just strolls into a police station one night with a severed head in his hands, and proclaims he is the killer known as "Inkubus" that they've been looking for all these years.

But he's no ordinary serial killer, and he's not there to give himelf up, he's there to raise some hell. Also starring William Forsythe (Devil's Rejects - Rob Zombies Halloween) and written by Carl Dupre (who worked on some of the later Hellraiser films) this low budget horror might not be to everyone's taste, which is a kind of cross between "Assault on Precinct 13" and "Candyman", but Robert Englund fans should enjoy it.

The DVD is released to UK video shelves Feb 13 with a trailer as an extra.

Eldorado 3D

Eldorado 3D, the biggest release to come out of the UK, is set to hit UK DVD & Blu-ray this month.

After wrongly being sent to a Neo Nazi fund raiser instead of a Bar Mitzvah, Blues Brothers tribute band 'The Jews Brothers', Stan and Ollie, get offered a gig in El Dorado to make amends for the gig gone sour.

At the very same time Jessica, a beautiful but despondent wife is on the run with a million dollars from her cheating husband's night club. All roads lead to El Dorado; these lives intersect and at this point it means trouble. While these small lives revolve around each other, a bigger power is controlling the action to make their visit to this town one they will never forget. It's El Dorado's 200th anniversary, the townsfolk are hungry to celebrate, which does prove unfortunate for the tourists who come to visit and find that they are the dish of the day.

Featuring an star cast including Peter O'Toole, Daryl Hannah, Michael Madsen, Rik Mayall, Steve Guttenberg, Brigitte Nilsen, Jeff Fahey, Patrick Bergin, Bill Moseley, Sylvester McCoy, Oliver Tobias, Caroline Monroe, Robert Llewllyn, Buster Bloodvessel including the last performance of David Carradine. Eldorado 3D is more than just bad table manners and a little light music - it's a way of life.
