DVD: Rubber (15)

"Ladies and gentlemen, the film you're about to see is a homage to 'no reason'," explains Stephen Spinella's cop to camera at the start of this wonderfully deranged horror.

The Exorcist (1973). Starring Ellen Burstyn, Linda Blair, Max von Sydow and Jason Miller. <br/>
The possession and exorcism of devil spirits from a young girl remains one of the most sensational, gory and chilling horror movies of all time. Adapted from the 1971 novel by William Peter Blatty, The Exorcist sparked fierce criticism when it was first released, playing as it did on fears of the devil and possession. Nauseating special effects – the 360 degree head-rotation, self-mutilation with a crucifix and the projectile green vomiting – conjure up images which are impossible to forget.

Michael Gough: Actor who rounded off a long career with his best-known role, Bruce Wayne's butler in the 'Batman' films

Like the character he played in four of the Batman movie blockbusters, that of Bruce Wayne's faithful butler Alfred, Michael Gough radiated quiet authority and avuncular charm; he could spin a theatrical tale like few others.

Frankenstein, National Theatre: Olivier, London

Nick Dear's taut, fiercely focused version of Frankenstein – a project that has brought Oscar-winning film-maker Danny Boyle back to his theatrical roots – offers a radically different ending from either Mary Shelley's 1818 novel (on which it is based) or the movie versions spawned by James Whale's 1931 classic. Here, in a luminously ice-green Arctic, the scientist Victor Frankenstein and his Creature both survive, umbilically linked in the kind of perpetual deathly symbiosis that would pass muster in Dante's Inferno.

Bernd Eichinger: Film producer, director and writer whose hits included 'Downfall' and the 'Resident Evil' series

Bernd Eichinger was Germany's most successful postwar film producer.
