A box of sour nerds, a glass of lumpy Nesquik and a sedentary evening of all the low-budget Sci-Fi that Sky One had to offer. A classic late-90s night in. For much of the mid-20s generation, Buffy, Relic Hunter and Dark Skies were all part of a staple diet, or maybe just an amuse bouche for the 6 o’clock Simpsons. But of all the fantasy series classics, it was Highlander was the one that left so many palates divided. Back in those carefree days of 1997, there were two schools of awkward pre-teens, those who followed Highlander, and those who tolerated it after the closing credits of Quantum Leap.
Even if you were part of the latter, the one thing you will remember is Adrian Paul, with his wet look hair and errie resemblance to a young Sean Connery. To the horror of Lambert fanboys across the board, Paul, »

It’s another jam-packed week of DVD and Blu-ray releases, here’s the rundown of what’s available to buy from today, June 20th 2011.
Pick Of The Week:
Savage Streets (DVD)
Brenda’s got a switchblade and she knows how to use it… See Linda Blair (The Exorcist) take bloody revenge on a gang of low down dirty street punks in Savage Streets, a brutal journey into rape, violence, switchblades and bear traps. When Brenda (Blair) and her all-girl gang of tough talking chicks, The Satins, refuse to party with a car full of local drug pushers called The Scars, the girls think nothing of it, but they didn’t reckon on the bruised ego of Jake and his feral pack of no good thugs. Targeting Brenda’s deaf sister, they invade the school and savage her, leaving her on the critical list. Now Brenda must scour the streets in »
Director: Richard Clabaugh. Review: Adam Wing. Paranoia is at an all time high. Government surveillance has reached unprecedented levels of authority and control. Mobile robotic cameras that can follow anyone, anywhere, at anytime, are governing society. The entire human population is being watched, judged, sentenced and contained. Richard Clabaugh presents a vision of the future all too apparent, all too relevant and all too terrifying. Richard Clabaugh presents a movie that dares to tackle political themes, conspiracy theories, privacy mandates and current affairs. Richard Clabaugh presents a picture starring Adrian Paul (Highlander: End Game) as law enforcement officer ‘Gunner’ Reynolds, in a sci-fi actioner that dares to call itself Eyeborgs. Well you can’t have everything, right? A throwback to 80’s action sensibilities is no bad thing, which is fortunate because Eyeborgs comes on like a cross between Robocop and Batteries Not Included, with a sprinkling of Starship Troopers thrown in for good measure. »
Technophobes the world over are proven right in Richard Clabaugh’s futuristic sci-fi/horror/action flick Eyeborgs, and UK audiences will get to see just how right they are later this month when the film hits DVD courtesy of Momentum Pictures. In the meantime check out the full release details and trailer!
When an army of mobile, AI-driven security cameras created by the government to monitor all communications in the wake of a terrorist attack prove they’re sporting more than just lenses, the only man capable of stopping them is TV’s "Highlander" himself, Adrian Paul. When the machines and resistance wage war, there can be only one winner – and those of you in the UK will get to find out who that is on June 20th.

Killer Surveillance Cameras! Yep, that's the gist of it. Longer term Twitch readers may remember Richard Clabaugh's indie sci-fi pic Eyeborgs from as far back as 2007. Well, after a brief trip to Sci-Fi London in 2010, his surveillance robot action-thriller finally makes it to DVD in the UK this month. As you may have picked up from the truly wonderful title, Eyeborgs is resolutely B-movie territory and appears to be all the better for it. "In the wake of another devastating terrorist attack, the United States government passes the "Freedom of Observation Act, a law requiring all communications and surveillance cameras to be constantly monitored for national security. Helping to enforce the new law are the Eyeborgs, mobile surveillance robots that can track suspicious persons »
Danny Trejo is the king of trash cinema: and the man with the most grizzled face on modern screens skates the fertile ground between B-Movie greats and downright D-quality garbage on a regular basis. And as if to prove the point, he is about to strut his stuff in Eyeborgs, an independent sci-fi horror that bills itself as a mesh of the techno-anxiety of I, Robot and Enemy of the State and the creature horrors of Gremlins and Critters.
I’ve just been sent the trailer, and I couldn’t resist sharing it. So look beyond the leap, and feast your eyes on some seriously imbalanced film-making.
Here’s the frankly bonkers synopsis for what promises to be a definite filmic curio:
In the wake of another devastating terrorist attack, the United States government passes the “Freedom of Observation Act, a law requiring all communications and surveillance cameras to be constantly monitored for national security. »
