A rare and inventive addition to the classic “whodunnit” genre, believed lost for decades, Mystery Junction (PG) is released on DVD on 18th January 2016, RRP £9.99, courtesy of Network’s ‘The British Film’ collection.

Sydney Tafler (Alfie, The Spy Who Loved Me) stars as a celebrated crime writer who finds life imitating art when he boards a train on which murder is a travelling companion.

Miss Owens, an avid reader of detective stories, finds herself travelling in the same railway compartment as crime writer Larry Gordon – neither of them realising that amongst their fellow passengers is a prisoner under escort to trial for murder. When a rescue attempt claims a policeman’s life and the passengers become snowbound at a remote railway station, it’s a race against time to unmask the culprit before the murderer strikes again!

Mystery Junction also features performances from Barbara Murray (The Power Game, Up Pompeii) and soon-to-be Hollywood star Patricia Owens (The Fly, Sayonara).

It is presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements 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!
