The Purple Patch Blog YouTube Channel is now live, and here is the first showreel of forthcoming attractions. These will all be hitting UK DVD or BluRay on the 23rd or 30th of September. I will aim to put these showreels together regularly, depending on how many films of interest are forthcoming. There's a blend of titles old and new in this batch, so something for everyone - Enjoy!
NOTE: Please remember that trailers of older films are not necessarily representative of the quality of the actual edition being released!
