During a preview tour of Jurassic Park, a theme park on an isolated island with cloned dinosaurs on display, a disastrous power breakdown causes the park’s vital electric fences to turn off - and the flesh-hungry dinosaurs to roam free. Skeptical paleontologists Alan Grant and Ellie Satler (Sam Neill and Laura Dern) and the grandchildren of the park owner must fend for themselves against these ancient predators in director Steven Spielberg’s bloody-fun, wildly pulse-pounding adventure. With Jeff Goldblum and Richard Attenborough.

1964, Janus Films, 115 min, Dir: Bryan Forbes

Mira (Kim Stanley), an opportunistic psychic, and her pushover husband, Bill (Richard Attenborough), concoct a scheme to kidnap a rich couple’s child, and then gain celebrity by pretending to have clairvoyant hunches about the child’s whereabouts. When the police begin to question Mira and Bill - and when Bill becomes paranoid that Mira doesn’t want the child to be found alive - an eerie, spine-tingling thriller unfolds.
