The recent British remake of Expose (aka: House on Straw Hill), directed by Martin Kemp of Spandau Ballet fame, had pretty much disappeared into the ether...

...until now! Looks like the film has been retitled Stalker and will be seeing a direct-to-DVD release in the UK through 4Digital Media on Oct. 17th!

Stalker (Expose) at Amazon UK (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Stalker-DVD-Colin-Salmon/dp/B005GDJA0W/ref=sr_1_36?m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&s=dvd&ie=UTF8&qid=1313592699&sr=1-36)

Even if it's total rubbish (and let's be honest, shall we? The original wasn't Shakespeare to begin with) it's got Jane March which = instant purchase for me! :biggrin:

Didn't even know there was a remake of this.

Stinky cover art.

Yes, but...Jane March! I thought she'd retired...

Wasn't she in the Clash of the Titans remake? I never saw it but I think she was.

I have checked IMDb, and you are correct. Sadly, Gemma Arterton is also in the movie...which means I now have to buy a copy. Jane and Gem in the same movie? Be still my throbbing underwear...

Aha! Here's a little more about...stuff...

Black & Blue Pictures launches DVD label (http://www.variety.com/article/VR1118038298?refcatid=19)

Jonathan Sothcott and original producer James Kenelm Clarke are behind this one (plus Linda Hayden has a cameo), so it might be okay...hopefully...

Bloody hell! EXPOSE remake! Bloody hell! Jane March! Consider my curiousity piqued.

I (sadly) saw the CLASH OF THE TITANS remake at the pictures and didn't know Jane March was in it. But then, I did doze off a couple of times. (Oh, it was dreadful.)

I can't I'm as excited as I was now, having just read the BBFC entry for the film: Stalker @ the BBFC (http://www.bbfc.co.uk/AFF283686/)

While the 15 rating allows stronger material than it used to these days, it appears from the consumer advice that the original has been diluted somewhat. And 77m? Is it just me or are British genre films getting shorter and shorter? You don't seem to get many theatrical B-movies longer than eighty minutes these days.

I love it when movies don't break the 90 minute mark. Not that I don't enjoy long movies as well, but for some reason I get a cheap thrill when I see a short running time on an uncut film.
