Win! ‘The Limehouse Golem’ DVD, Book & Bill Nighy-Signed Poster



To celebrate the release of ‘The Limehouse Golem on DVD & Blu-ray from Boxing Day (December 26th 2017) we’re giving away a copy of the film on DVD, a copy of the book and a poster signed by Bill Nighy.

To win this great prize bundle, simply answer the question at the bottom of the page!

The tradition of serving up gothic terror at Christmas dates back to the 1800s and this year sees acclaimed thriller, THE LIMEHOUSE GOLEM, enter the fray, arriving on digital platforms on Christmas Day and on Blu-ray and DVD on Boxing Day courtesy of Lionsgate Home Entertainment UK.

Victorian London is gripped with fear as a serial killer – dubbed The Limehouse Golem – is on the loose and leaving cryptic messages written in his victims’ blood.  With few leads and increasing public pressure, Scotland Yard assigns the case to Inspector Kildare (Bill Nighy, Their Finest) – a seasoned detective with a troubled past and a sneaking suspicion he’s being set up to fail.  Faced with a list of suspects, including music hall star Dan Leno (Douglas Booth, The Riot Club), Kildare must discover which one is the killer before the Golem strikes again.

Based on the novel by Peter Ackroyd and scripted by Jane Goldman (The Woman in Black), Olivia Cooke (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl), Sam Reid (’71), Daniel Mays (TV’s Line of Duty) and Eddie Marsan (Filth) star in suspenseful murder mystery, THE LIMEHOUSE GOLEM; serving up the perfect antidote to the festive season’s more saccharine excesses.

To celebrate the release of Colossal on Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital Download on Monday 11th September, we have copies of the film to give away to FIVE lucky readers! Simply answer the question below to be in with a chance!


Gloria (Anne Hathaway) is an out-of-work party girl who finds herself in relationship trouble with her sensible boyfriend, Tim (Dan Stevens), and is forced to move back to her tiny hometown to get her life back on track. She reconnects with childhood friend Oscar (Jason Sudeikis), a good-natured bar owner with a coterie of drinking buddies (Tim Blake Nelson and Austin Stowell), and resumes her drinking lifestyle.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, a larger-than-life creature begins attacking Seoul, South Korea on a nightly basis, captivating spectators around the world. One night, Gloria is horrified to discover a connection between these catastrophic events and her own fractured psyche.

Deconstructing the monster movie genre in wildly imaginative ways, writer-director Nacho Vigalondo (TIMECRIMES, EXTRATERRESTRIAL, OPEN WINDOWS) unleashes a fantastical tale that also triumphs as a wholly original and subversive romantic comedy.
