Pitch Black (Special Edition) (15) (Universal Pictures Video, pounds 15.99) Rating ***

This extras-laden DVD version of the film which made Vin Diesel a star is released to coincide with the cinema release of the sequel, The Chronicles Of Riddick.

A starship is forced to crash-land on a remote and desolate planet orbited by two suns. As the smoke clears, the survivors crawl out of the ship's twisted belly and search for a resting place until help arrives.

The planet seems to be lifeless, but, as a lunar eclipse plunges the entire planet surface into darkness, the other inhabitants emerge: pterodactyl-like predators with an insatiable hunger for human flesh.

Killing Zoe (18) (Universal Pictures Video, pounds 15.99) Rating **

ROGER Avary's 1994 directorial debut is released on DVD for the first time.

Would-be robber Eric (Jean-Hugues Anglade) invites his safecracking pal Zed (Eric Stoltz) over from America to help him raid France's Federal Bank on Bastille Day.

Unfortunately, the plan quickly spirals out of control, not least when Zed falls head over heels in love with bank secretary Zoe (Julie Delpy).
