When DAWN OF THE DEAD was released in Italy as ZOMBI the late great Lucio Fulci took it upon himself to make his own sequel, ZOMBI 2 - also known as ZOMBIE FLESH-EATERS. Thus, proving that copyright was a grey area back in the 1980s, director Ciro Ippolito decided that there was nothing to stop him making a follow-up to Ridley Scott's sci-fi suspenser ALIEN - resulting in the birth of ALIEN 2: ON EARTH. This Italian offering came six years before ALIENS and, with a bevy of low budget charm and the occasional spilled brain, spins out a story of an extraterrestrial terror landing in the here and now and stalking its prey in contemporary California.Putting themselves up against this otherworldly entity are a small group of explorers - and seasoned fans of Italian shock will doubtlessly notice the great Michele Soavi (A BLADE IN THE DARK/ PHENOMENA) among the cast! Arguably more exciting than ALIEN 3, decades later and ALIEN 2: ON EARTH might well be the film that David Fincher wishes he had made. See it now and decide and for yourselves - thanks to this amazing HD restoration from 88 Films.

I am the enfant terrible of literature and science. If I cannot, and I know I cannot, get the literary and scientific big-wigs to give me a shilling, I can, and I know I can, heave bricks into the middle of them. With The Way of All Flesh, Samuel Butler threw a subversive brick at the smug face of Victorian domesticity. Published in 1903, a year after Butler's death, the novel is a thinly disguised account of his own childhood and youth "in the bosom of a Christian family". With irony, wit, and sometimes rancor, he savaged contemporary values and beliefs, turning inside-out the conventional novel of a family's life through several generations. The Way of All Flesh tells the story of Ernest Pontifex and his struggles with Victorian mores, his restrictive, highly religious family, and Victorian society itself. Butler is remembered as one of the greatest of the anti-Victorians, whose ideas reflected accurately the new, more liberal society that was to come following the death of England's great queen, and the beginning of a new era. 1.

The story of Christianity is a story of incarnation - God taking on flesh and dwelling among the people he created. God appointing and sending people as his body, his hands and feet. Disciples of Jesus bearing the good news even as they bear the marks of his passion. Whatever Christianity is, it is at least a matter of flesh and blood and the ends of the earth. And yet so much of contemporary Christian culture is rooted not in incarnation but in escape - escape from the earth to heaven, escape from the suffering of this world, escape even from one another. Christianity is increasingly understood as something personal, conceptual, interior, private, neighbor-less. If Jesus was God incarnate, the church is in danger of being excarnate. Michael Frost expertly and prophetically exposes the gap between the faith we profess and the faith we practice. And he offers new hope for how the church can fulfill its vocation: to be the hands and feet of Christ to one another and to our neighbors, to the ends of the earth and to the end of the age. 1.

*Man Booker International Prize finalist* "Brave and ingenious." -The New York Times "Gripping, darkly humorous . . . profound." -Phil Klay, bestselling author and National Book Award winner for Redeployment "Extraordinary . . . A devastating but essential read." -Kevin Powers, bestselling author and National Book Award finalist for The Yellow Birds From the rubble-strewn streets of U.S.-occupied Baghdad, Hadi-a scavenger and an oddball fixture at a local café-collects human body parts and stitches them together to create a corpse. His goal, he claims, is for the government to recognize the parts as people and to give them proper burial. But when the corpse goes missing, a wave of eerie murders sweeps the city, and reports stream in of a horrendous-looking criminal who, though shot, cannot be killed. Hadi soon realizes he's created a monster, one that needs human flesh to survive-first from the guilty, and then from anyone in its path. A prizewinning novel by "Baghdad's new literary star" (The New York Times), Frankenstein in Baghdad captures with white-knuckle horror and black humor the surreal reality of contemporary Iraq.
