The Witches (12)
After its screening in a fully restored form at the London Film Festival earlier this month, Cyril Franklin's classic British horror romp comes to DVD. Made for the illustrious Hammer company and originally released in 1966, it stars Hollywood great Joan Fontaine in her last major film role. She plays Gwen Mayfield, a former missionary to Africa who finds herself in a spot of satanic hot water when she returns to Britain to take up a job at a small country school. Kay Walsh and Alec McCowen also star, and extras include the documentary Hammer Glamour. Out tomorrow.
The Deep (12)
A hit at this year's Edinburgh Intenational Film Festival where it played alongside Paul Wright's similarly themed For Those In Peril, this Icelandic film tells the true story of the sole survivor of a 1984 fishing tragedy who endures six hours in the freezing north Atlantic only to wash up on a lava outcrop. It is directed by Baltasar Kormakur, whose previous films include 101 Reykjavik and noirish detective thriller Jar City. Out tomorrow.
World War Z (15)
See Glasgow as you've never seen it before - or, if you were one of the thousands who flocked to George Square and surrounds to see Brad Pitt filming this post-apocalyptic zombie thriller, see what the Dear Green Place looks like in the hands of director Marc Forster. Out tomorrow.
The Purge (15)
James DeMonaco directs this tolerably interesting sociological parable set in the America of 2022 and starring Ethan Hawke alongside Tony Oller and Game Of Thrones bad girl Lena Headey. The plot: for one night a year, any crime is allowable, including murder. The idea is to purge society of undesirables and naturally the more money you have, the more protection you can purchase. Selling security is how James Sandin (Hawke) makes a living - but are the devices he has installed in his own home going to be enough to protect him and his family during this year's night of terror? Out tomorrow.
