When hubby exacts a brutal revenge on both of them. our Kev vows to get his own back by all means necessary. Sub-l lcmingway tosh. with the thinnest of narratives quite overloaded by all the stylistic paraphernalia former adman Scott can muster. The result is stunningly banal. Strathclyde: UCl Clydcbank.

I Robocop ( 18) (Paul Verhocven. US. 1987) Peter Weller. Nancy Allen. Ronny Cox. 103 mins. Slick and stomach-churningly violent futuristic thriller blending elements of Dirty Harry. Frankenstein and The Six Million Dollar Man. When diligent policeman Welleris shot to pieces by vicious hoods. his remains are mechanically reconstructed into a hi-tech law enforcement officer. but the human desire for revenge still beats beneath his mechanical exterior. Edinburgh: Cameo.

I Romero ( 15) (John Duigan. US. 1989) Raul Julia. Richard Jordan. Ana Alicia. 106 mins.

The videotape: John's buddy Graham (Spader) gets his kicks by filming women‘s sexual

confessions. 26-year-old Soderbergh‘s first feature is a strikingly assured. funny and thoughtful piece of work, forcing us to examine our own attitudes toward sex. and won the Palme d'Or at Cannes. Edinburgh: Cameo.

Gilbert‘s screen version of the celebrated Willy Russell play. now expanded from a monologue to include Hill as the insensitive hubby and Conti as the Greek bit of stuffShirley meets on a Mediterranean holiday that turns into a voyage ofself-(re)discovery. Collins is outstanding in the title role of frustrated Liverpudlian housewife. Glasgow: GFT. Edinburgh: Filmhouse. Central: MacRobert Arts Centre.

I Shockar(18) (Wes Craven. US. 1989) Peter Berg. Michael Murphy. Mitch Pileggi. 110 mins. In which the overworked Freddy Krueger is resurrected by his original creator in a new guise. that of Horace Pinker. electrical engineer and personal pal of Old Nick, whose spell in the electric chair only serves to increase his appetite and aptitude for gratuitous meat-cleaving activities. In a startlingly innovative twist to the genre. Craven has a teenage boy dream our Horace‘s murders before they occur. But with a positive plethora ofingenious blood-letting schemes and psychic leaps. there‘s no suggestion here of Mr Slice ‘n‘ Dice‘s batteries running low. Central: Cannon. Strathclyde: Cannon.

I Spaced Invaders (PG) (Patrick Read Johnson. US. 1990) Douglas Barr. Royal Dario. Ariana Richards. 90 mins. On the
