A fantastic film at a fantastic price - the Homebase half price sale surprisingly includes all their entertainment stock as well, and there are a number of good deals to be had - but this one stood out for me given how you're generally looking at up to £13 for this DVD at the moment with most online and high street retailers. I bought it this afternoon at my local store (Streatham Common) when they had an additional 10% off everything in store too (I think just this weekend, sorry!)- so I picked up my copy for a ridiculously good £6.29. They had several copies too as I took a slipcase to the customer collection desk and they pulled out one of the sealed copies from under the counter... hope this helps some prudent bargain hunter!

An isolated lunar astronaut begins to lose his grip on reality in this cerebral sci-fi thriller with one heck of a twist.
Sam Bell (Sam Rockwell) is just two weeks away from finishing a lengthy, lonely contract mining Earth's primary source of energy, Helium-3, on the dark side of the moon. Thanks to a glitch in the communications satellite, Sam's only companion on this trip is Gerty (voiced by Kevin Spacey), the base's unsophisticated computer, and the odd recorded message sent from home. As his contract nears termination, Sam starts suffering from crippling headaches and vivid hallucinations, which lead to a near-fatal accident in a lunar rover. But while he's recovering back at the base, he makes a shocking discovery: a younger version of himself has arrived to fulfil the same contract Sam started all that time ago. Is the second Sam just another hallucination or something altogether more sinister?
