PATRICK MACNEE PASSES AWAY (1922 – 2015)
Reminisce with The New Avengers
Avengers star dies of natural causes
After a long and eventful career, Daniel Patrick MacNee has passed away of natural causes at age 93. Known for his star role in the original film and The New Avengers he also lived his life with risk and danger. Graduating from Eton college after almost being expelled for running a gambling ring, he decided to pursue his dreams by debuting in his first film as an extra when he was just 18! After serving in the Royal Army during WWII, MacNee recieved a scholarship from Webber Douglas School of Dramatic Art. He spent time in the USA and Canada building himself as an actor before he returned to England where he landed on some huge roles that took him towards fame. He played roles in film up until the late 90′s and then moved to recording audio books, before passing away from natural causes last night at his home in California.
We have a great title featuring MacNee, The New Avengers, in which he starred as Steed, the head of a British organisation. You can purchase the 8-disc collector’s edition for just $25.00!

BEYOND THE DARKNESS
Previously unavailable in Australia and still banned in some parts of the world, Beyond The Darkness (Buio Omega - AKA The Final Darkness, Buried Alive and Dark Holocaust) is considered one of the most controversial, graphic and depraved Italian horror movies ever made.
Joe D’Amato’s 1979 horror film remains a cult classic-crossing the genre with the menace of Hitchcock’s Psycho, the obsession of Shelley’s Frankenstein and the cannibalism fetish of Fulci’s Zombie Flesh Eaters. Replete with a sinister gothic soundtrack by maestros of mayhem Goblin (Deep Red, Suspiria), Beyond The Darkness will rip your nerves apart and terrify you to the core.
