    Hi,

    If any of you pick-up those free "Columbia Tri-Star Home Video DVD" catalogues, then you may already know this. However, for those that don't have said catalogue, I recommend you read the following!

    Newcomer German actress, Franke Potente recently made an entrance with the superb cult thriller "Run, Lola, Run". Now, she stars in a grim and decidedly skin-crawling medical horror movie called "Anatomie", which Columbia Tri-Star should be releasing on R2 DVD on Monday 23rd April 2001!

    Potente plays a medical student who notices that all of the cadavers they have to practice on, seem to have a little piece of "life" still remaining in them, and the cadavers are having none of this!

    Part zombie flick, part E.R., this is a movie that gives horror movies their true meaning! If you liked "The Ring", and haven't had a chance to catch the latest Japanese horror sensation "Audition", then this will more than tide you over!

    The film should be an anamorphic widescreen print in 1.85:1, with English subtitles. (The original langauge is German, obviously!) It should also have several lots of extras, including deleted scenes, director's commentary, music videos, behind-the-scenes featurettes and interviews with the cast and crew!

    This is absolutely not for the squeamish!! The combination of medical procedures and zombie-horror definitely make for an uneasy evening's viewing!

    .... but don't let me put you off finishing that slice of liver you're eating! .... You are sure that that liver came from an animal, aren't you...?!

    ...ahhh... Sorry 'Pooch', but one more lousy movie like Anatomie and Ms. Potente's career will be over...

    (just MHO, of course!)
