DVD roundup: "very touched, and probably a little suspicious" edition

Has there ever been such a terrifying sound a girl clucking? Hereditary won a lot of praise when it first came out, and for the most part it deserves it. This is a film that will have you on the end of your seat, and the horror comes not just in the tension and the visuals, but also in the horror of family and the disturbing secrets it can hide. While the last 20 minutes or so does go a bit crazy, maybe a bit crazy for some, it is worth it just to experience the sublime slow-burn it builds through the rest of the movie. Listen to our full review in the player below.

A bunch of middle aged women get together to start a book club. The book they chose? 50 Shades of Grey, of course. So, expect lots of double entendre's and wooing at men. Still, with a great cast, including Jane Fonda and Diane Keaton, this could be a fun watch if you find E L James' book titillating.

Summer 1993 is the debut feature from Spanish director Carla Simón and sees the transformation of a young girls life. After her mother dies, she moves from the city to the Catalan country side to begin the new chapter in her life while learning to live through her past. Expect joyful sadness and whimsy in this coming of age drama.

You want to experience truly terrible for Halloween? You can't do much better then Troll 2, heralded as one of the best worst movies ever. A new boxset has been released which lumps it with Troll, the first film in the series, but don't expect any connection between the two; they are pretty much two different films. Hell, the trolls are even called "goblins" in the second film. The find out what we thought of both of these films, listen to our podcast review here.
