Villain heads to DVD

Out of all the classic/cult British gangster movies, one in particular has never been issued on DVD – Villain. Well, for the first time, Villain is now confirmed for a DVD release.

Based on the classic 60s crime thriller Burden Of Proof (and indeed on the Krays), it’s the tale of London crime boss Vic Dakin (Richard Burton), a vicious gangster who rules the streets by intimidation before going home to his mother or is love interest Wolfe (Ian McShane). But Vic takes on one job too many – and suddenly, he’s on the back foot as the police close in.

It’s available to buy from 3rd September, hopefully with a few extras, though that’s not clear as yet. If you want to get a taste of the movie, check out Cinedelica for Dakin at his vicious best.
