The BFI are set to release the Short Sharp Shocks Volume 3 Blu-ray on the 9th October 2023 in the UK.
“The third in the critically acclaimed BFI Flipside series. Continuing its ongoing mission to curate an alternative Brit-screen history of overlooked rarities in deluxe home-entertainment editions, is a further compelling compendium of strange, striking, thrilling, horrific, eerie and eccentric short subjects from the heyday of the British cinematic supporting programme.”– BFI
