Eclectica 161 - Solo: Star Wars Story + the Old Dark House + Death Smiles on a Murderer

Vera Drake in 4DX

In a week that includes a new Star Wars film then that's what you have to do, which is why we can't ignore the release of "Solo: A Star Wars Story". Unfortunately Graham, Aidan and Sarah are all at very different levels of the Star Wars fandom, so what will they make of it?

More importantly, who paid extra to see it in 4DX and was it worth it?

After that it's business as usual with Off the Shelf, which this week is a chamber of horrors as Graham - our resident Universal Horror superfan - breaks in to James Whale's "The Old Dark House" (now on Blu-Ray from Eureka/Masters of Cinema), for a good rummage. Meanwhile, Aidan finds out why "Death Smiles on a Murderer" in Arrow Video's re-release of the 1970s Italian Horror (given the name, it's definitely not going to be a 1980s John Hughes movie … except maybe Home Alone because that kid is obviously the bad guy from Saw).
