Eureka Entertainment have announced that The Human Centipede Trilogy of films will be released in a Steelbook boxset, available exclusively from Zavvi. There’s a special bonus disc which includes The Human Centipede 2 in full colour.
When The Human Centipede was first released, it was a concept that spread far beyond the horror realm. The sequel became even more newsworthy in the UK with the BBFC, the censor, initially refusing to certificate the film. The Daily Telegraph provides more detail, and explains why there is a lot more to the trilogy than “schlocky thrills”.
Eureka Entertainment are releasing Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s macabre and unsettling thriller Creepy. It’s available on a dual format DVD and Blu-Ray disc presentation.
What do the critics think?
The Guardian , giving it 4 stars, says that Kurosawa makes a return to the goosepimpled values of classic J-horror. The Observer, the Sunday edition of The Guardian, says that some horror films creep, and Creepy moves with the softest of steps, the slow burn paying dividends.

Eureka Entertainment are releasing Bernardo Bertolucci’s epic 1900 Novecento on blu-ray. “Epic” really is the relevant word here as it is a 5 hour saga following the inter-twined fates of two childhood friends through five decades of class struggle.
Robert De Niro and Gerard Depardieu headline, but there’s an extraordinary cast including Burt Lancaster, Donald Sutherland – and a musical score by Ennio Morricone.
