Southern Television presents Armchair Thriller Series ~ "HIGH TIDE" (1980) (UK) (98 min/Color) (Dolby digitally remastered) --- Peter Curtis (Ian McShane) has just been released from prison in England, his crime was manslaughter --- Now Curtis is parked on a English country road when a driver appears out of nowhere and hits and kills his dog --- The man stops and Curtis in a rage attacks him thus he dies from a heart attack --- Before dying he mutters a few words --- A stranger approaches Curtis later in the story and asks what those final words were that the dying man had muttered --- And the puzzle begins about the words that Curtis finally remembers is "high tide" and why is there so much interest --- The direction is first rate with some beautiful coastal scenery and paced very nicely this mystery unfolds with numerous characters showing up here and there --- See if you can figure out the ending with all of the facts laid before you within the four episodes on one DVD.

Hats off and thanks to Robert Blair and his staff at VCI Entertainment --- Well acted and good direction makes this a must view --- All in all, good transfers and a lot of content for the money --- Please note there are no extras or bonus features --- But it's good seeing a young Ian McShane before he became a household name on the hit HBO Series "Deadwood".

Total Time: 98 min on DVD ~ VCI Entertainment #8460 ~ (7/27/2010)

I love watching Ian McShane; he is a superb actor and has an intoxicating voice and look. I'm sure I won't be disappointed!

high tide is low tide! 29 Dec. 2011

I love Ian McShane! I loved him in Lovejoy and in some other
movies and he gives his all in this but this is not a movie!
it's a tv series! Armchair thriller. and it's not very good.
I love mysteries and horror but this was a short boring story.
Try Con Man before this! I got on vhs and it's one of the best
movies Ian ever made! unless you have to everything he made skip it!
