HIS WIFE. HIS MISTRESS. HIS CAREER. A DEADLY TRAP.

In 1986, John Frankenheimer the director of The Manchurian Candidate, Seconds and French Connection II made the unlikely career move of working with schlockmeisters Cannon Films. Adapting Elmore Leonard s novel of the same name, 52 Pick-Up s union brought about the perfect blend of high calibre thrills and Cannon-grade trash.

Roy Scheider (Jaws, Cohen and Tate) plays a successful businessman whose life quickly falls apart when a compromising videotape of him and his mistress (Kelly Preston) becomes a tool for blackmail. Unable to go to the police without compromising the political career of his wife (Ann-Margret), he must take things into his own hands and delve into a world of drugs, sleaze, pornography and snuff.

Co-starring Prince protégé Vanity and John Glover (who was described as the best, most reprehensible villain of the year by Roger Ebert), and featuring a host of cameos from the stars of the Silver Age of Porn , 52 Pick-Up has been described by Leonard as his favourite big-screen adaptation of his works.

DATE. MATE. RE-ANIMATE.

The success of Stuart Gordon s hit horror-comedy Re-animator meant that a sequel was all but inevitable. The resulting follow-up, Bride of Re-animator this time helmed by director Brian Yuzna (Society, Return of the Living Dead III) would prove that there was a good deal more life (and death) left in the story of Dr Herbert West and his ghoulish exploits.

It has been eight months since the bloody massacre at the Miskatonic medical school. Unperturbed by the disastrous outcome of his previous meddling with the dead, Dr West (again played by Jeffrey Combs) continues his research into the phenomenon of re-animation; only this time, he plans to create life starting with the heart of his young protégé Dan s dearly deceased, Meg Halsey. Surely nothing could go wrong?

With special effects master Screaming Mad George (the man behind the infamous shunting sequence of Society) on hand to contribute a host of characteristically weird and wonderful creations, Bride of Re-animator is a more than worthy successor to Stuart Gordon s original cult classic.
