David Nixon's Christmas Magic
Top-Produkt
11,49 € *
zzgl. 1,49 € Versand

Over a thirty year career in television, David Nixon's subtle blend of magic, music and comedy was loved by millions and is fondly remembered to this day. In his heyday during the 1970s, Nixon was hardly ever offscreen and David Nixon's Magic Box and The David Nixon Show were firm favourites with the viewing public. For Nixon, though, Christmas had its own special magic as can be seen in these two classic festive specials from the mid-'70s, whose guests include the lovely Aimi MacDonald, famed illusionist Robert Harbin, pop chanteuse Lynsey de Paul, vaudevillian comic George Carl, international singing star Caterina Valente and ventriloquist Shari Lewis with her feisty sock puppet, Lamb Chop!

BEYOND THE POWER OF AN EXORCIST The mid-1970s saw the rise in popularity of films centering on the subject of parapsychology, led by Carrie – Brian De Palma’s classic tale of telekinetic terror. Precognition, or future sight, would be the topic under exploration in Robert Allen Schnitzer’s contribution to the psychic craze: the chilling and much-overlooked The Premonition. Mother Sheri Bennett (Sharon Farrell, Night of the Comet, Sweet Sixteen) is assailed by terrifying visions in which a strange woman attempts to steal away her five-year-old daughter Janie. Are these bizarre occurrences the result of some sort of mental disturbance, or is something much more sinister afoot? Featuring a haunting score from accomplished classical composer Henry Mollicone, The Premonition has remained unjustly obscure over the years but is heralded as a true classic of ’70s US horror moviemaking by genre aficionados. DIRECTOR-APPROVED SPECIAL EDITION CONTENTS: • 2K restoration from original film elements • High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) presentation • Original Mono Audio • English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing • Introduction to the film by Nightmare USA author Stephen Thrower • Isolated Score • Audio commentary with producer-director Robert Allen Schnitzer • Pictures from a Premonition – brand new making-of documentary featuring interviews with Schnitzer, composer Henry Mollicone and cinematographer Victor Milt • Archive interviews with Schnitzer and star Richard Lynch • Trailers and TV Spots • Three Robert Allen Schnitzer short films: Vernal Equinox, Terminal Point and A Rumbling in the Land • 4 “Peace Spots” • Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly-commissioned artwork by The Twins of Evil

This compilation of five early short films by MARTIN SCORSESE (Taxi Driver) offers a fascinating window onto his artistic development. Spanning the years from Scorsese’s time at NYU in the mid-1960s to the late ’70s, when he was emerging as one of the era’s most electrifying talents, Scorsese Shorts centers on the intimate home movie Italianamerican—a loving snapshot of the director’s parents—and American Boy, a freewheeling portrait of a larger-than-life raconteur. Also included are The Big Shave, a daringly visceral response to America’s involvement in Vietnam, and the bracing student films What’s a Nice Girl Like You Doing in a Place Like This? and It’s Not Just You, Murray! Touching on many of Scorsese’s key themes— Italian American identity, family, his beloved New York City—these are hilarious, candid, and illuminating works from the preeminent American filmmaker of our time.

Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things and De...

Classic Benjamin Bob Clark Uncut Double-Feature! Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things (1972)A troupe of method actors and their despotic director head out to Cocount Grove, Florida where, as a prank, they exhume a corpse called Orville and are subsequently horrified when his similarly deceased friends emerge from their graves to play some deadly games of their own.Filmed as America experienced its post-60s comedown, director Bob Clark's first horror feature began a truly terrifying trilogy that continued with the powerful anti-Vietnam war statement Dead Of Night and climaxed with the classic seasonal (and subsequently re-made) scarefest Black Christmas. This weird and unique horror debut - so lysergic in places you can almost smell the Florida grass - is a long way from Clark's later Murder by Decree, which pitted Sherlock Holmes against Jack The Ripper in the fog-shrouded streets of Victorian London.Featuring a cast assembled from various friends, including future Cat People re-make writer Alan Ormsby (who with co-cast member Jeff Gillen went on to direct Deranged, another masterpiece) as well as Jane Daly (one of American TV's most recognisable faces), Clark created one of US independent horror cinema’s offbeat classics. Like Let's Scare Jessica to Death, Axe, Devil Times Five and Death Bed, Children Shouldn’t Play with Dead Things shows what can be done with inspiration, determination and a limited budget. An unsettling, minimalist electronic score from Carl Zittrer and some of the most outrageous zombies you'll ever see also await within this cult horror classic. And remember, just because somebody's called Orville, it doesn't mean that they're your very best friend ! Dead of Night (1972)Soldier Andy Brooks has been declared dead by his commanding officer in Vietnam but this doesn't stop him returning home to his parents Charles and Christine as a lifeless supernatural entity bent on revenge against the society that sent him to his grave.Made a full three years before 'the boys came marching home' from one of America's least successful foreign sorties, Dead of Night - also known as Deathdream - is a dark-hued contemporary horror tale comparable to The Crazies, Targets or Ladybug Ladybug. Its symbolic portrayal of suburban terror is shot through with an uncomfortable dose of social realism as a once tight-knit, loving family is quite literally torn apart. A terrific cast sees future soap star Richard Backus making his big-screen debut (in a role originally intended for Christopher Walken) as the ghoulish Andy plus Larry Cohen regular John Marley (It Lives Again, The Godfather, Blade) and the compelling Lynn Carlin (Superstition, Terror on the 40th Floor, Taking Off) both excellent as Andy's parents. There are also strong performances from Anya Ormsby and Jane Daly who also featured in Bob Clark’s earlier Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things. An atmospheric, disquieting and ultimately moving zombie chiller (loosely based on W.W. Jacobs’ classic fable The Monkey's Paw ), this Canadian-US-British co-production is also a powerful anti-Vietnam war statement made before these became a staple of 70's American cinema. As relevant today as it was in the mid-70s, it proves that old adage: Be careful what you wish for - it might come true…
