DVDs on sale Monday 16 October

Slither (RRP £19.99): Splattery horror comedy about killer alien worms. Directed by the writer of the remake of Dawn of the Dead, it stars the mighty flared nostrils of Firefly’s Nathan Fillion.

Garth Merenghi's Darkplace (£19.99): The spoofy Channel Four comedy about an ‘80s horror TV show that was shelved.

The Night Gallery (£24.99): The Rod Serling anthology show (his follow-up to The Twilight Zone). Warning: this is a seemingly randomly-selected grabbag of episodes rather than a complete season one set, despite what you might read elsewhere...

The Thief Lord (£16.99): Kids’ fantasy film involving thieving Venice street kids and a magical merry-go-round that can give people back their youth...

The Grudge - Extended Director’s Cut (£15.99): The Sarah Michelle Gellar-starring Japanese horror remake, now with added bits.

Aquamarine (£15.99): Charming kids’ film about some girls who discover a mermaid looking for love.

Ray Harryhausen: The Early Years (£19.99): A two-disc set of early shorts (fairy tale stories, mostly) and test footage from the stopmotion legend, accompanied by featurettes and tributes.

Horror Express (£12.99): Bonkers period horror starring Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee, in which a monster goes on the rampage on a train. Warning: this is in 4:3 format! Shameful.

Night of the Living Dead (£12.99): This must be about the fourteenth region two release of George Romero’s 1968 zombie classic! The main draw on this edition is the solitary extra, a feature-length 25th Anniversary Documentary (yes, it’s rather old).

The Projected Man (£12.99): Dull matter-transmitter horror from 1967. It isn’t a patch on The Fly.

Samurai Gun, volume one (£19.99): Anime set in the Sengoku period (that’s the mid-15th to the early 17th century, history buffs!), about a Batman-like crimefighter.

Tetsujin 28: The Movie (£16.99): Giant robots slug it out in Toyko. Hurrah!

Fantastic Children, volumes one and two (£19.99 each): Anime about mysterious white-haired children who never seem to age...

Robotech: The Macross Saga (£24.99): A complete box set of the ‘80s anime series.

The Descent/Dog Soldiers/28 Days Later (£19.99): One of a series of triple-bills from 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment. This one includes three good films!

Night Watch/Alien vs Predator/Resident Evil (£19.99): Another triple-pack. Two decent films and one turd, this time.

Fantastic Four/Elektra/Daredevil (£19.99): ...and here’s three so-so super-movies.

Constantine/V For Vendetta (£15.99): Not one but two somewhat disappointing adaptations of classic comics!

House of Wax/House of Wax (£13.99): No, that’s not a typo – this is a double bill of both the 1953 and 2005 films: a Vincent Price and Paris Hilton team-up!
