Horror icon Barbara Shelley (Dracula, Village of the Damned) takes an early starring role as a top model whose marriage sends shockwaves through Society in this gripping mystery drama from the late 1950s. Adapted from the novel by Nina Bawden and directed by Gerald Thomas (Carry On Cleo), The Solitary Child (PG) is released on 24th August 2015, RRP £9.99, courtesy of Network’s ‘The British Film’ collection.

The marriage of celebrated London model Harriet to Captain James Random causes a sensation: only two years previously, the gentleman farmer was acquitted in rather dubious circumstances of the murder of his first wife – and there is still a widespread suspicion among the public that Random is a man who ‘got away with it’.

The Solitary Child is featured in a brand-new digital transfer in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.


BatWhilst I love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, nothing can beat a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. I don't do 3D movies so put the red and green spex away!
