Product Description

BFI Flipside presents

NIGHTBIRDS (DVD + Blu-ray)
A Film by Andy Milligan

THE FLIPSIDE: rescuing weird and wonderful British films from obscurity and presenting them in new high-quality editions.

While living rough on the streets of London's East End, a young man, Dink (Berwick Kaler, Coronation Street), encounters the mysterious Dee (Julie Shaw, The Big Switch) and they begin a relationship. When tenderness gives way to cruelty they become consumed by darkness.

Previously thought lost, this extraordinary film has been remastered to HD from the only surviving film materials, and is presented here with Milligan's British horror feature, The Body Beneath.

Special Features

  • Presented in both High Definition and Standard Definition
  • Audio commentary with Berwick Kaler (2011): the stalwart of British stage and screen in conversation with film expert Stephen Thrower
  • The Body Beneath (Andy Milligan, 1970, 82 mins): ghoulish horror in which a young woman comes to visit her distant relative, the Reverend Algernon Ford, only to discover that he is a vampire
  • Optional dialogue-only tracks for Nightbirds and The Body Beneath
  • Original trailers for Nightbirds and The Body Beneath
  • Extensive booklet with contributions from filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn, Milligan biographer Jimmy McDonough, and cult cinema authorities Stephen Thrower and Tim Lucas
