RANCID ( MA)
Stars: Michael Thompson, Brandon Auret Director: Alastair Orr Available: Wednesday on DVD and BD A quartet of strangers volunteer for a medical treatment trial in a mysterious facility and get more than they bargained for in this low budget horror/ thriller which starts off effectively enough but weakens as the plot and blood- letting unfolds.
WARM BODIES ( M)
Stars: Nicholas Hoult, Teresa Palmer Director: Jonathan Levine
Available: Wednesday on DVD and BD Romanticising vampires is one thing but zombies ... c’mon, just let them eat. That said this unusual and unique tale of a zombie falling for a young woman he saves from an attack is a charming genre mash- up.
IDENTITY THIEF ( M)
Stars: Jason Bateman, Melissa McCarthy Director: Seth Gordon Available: Now on DVD and BD A high concept comedy that suffers from the Hollywood way of doing things, this story about a goodie- two- shoes family man trying to track down the crim that has stolen his identity is light, dumb and most frustratingly unfunny.
OBLIVION ( M)
Stars: Tom Cruise, Morgan Freeman Director: Joseph Kosinski Available: Now on DVD and BD Though it has key elements in common with other better sci/ fi stories this Tom Cruise lead adventure/ thriller about a future Earth abandoned by humans who are at war with scavenger aliens is a visual stunner.
