Available on DVD for the first time in one stunning box set, three excellent adaptations of the work of Barbara Vine (Ruth Rendell).


A Dark Eye Adapted (1994): Based on the true story of Vera Hillyard, one of the last women in Britain to hang for murder. A Dark Eye Adapted is a dark and brooding tale of a seemingly close-knit suburban family whose facade of normalcy hides the murderous sibling rivalry.

Gallowglass (1993): A European aristocrat's wife, already the victim of one kidnapping attempt, endures round-the-clock protection when another plot looms.

A Fatal Inversion (1992): A tragic summer, long forgotten by four friends, returns to haunt the now estranged group when the body of a young woman and a baby are uncovered in the pet cemetery on an ancestral estate.

It is worth buying this Barbara Vine boxset just for the magnificent 'A Fatal Inversion' starring Jeremy Northam and Douglas Hodge.
The other two films are okay, Michael Sheen stars in 'Gallowglass' and Helena Bonham Carter stars in 'A Dark Adapted Eye'. However 'Inversion' makes the set worthwhile
