Re: Mondo Macabro goes BLU

The next big batch of stuff from Mondo Macabro:

Just had a chat with Pete Tombs about our Halloween Sale slate of new releases. A couple of updates to what I said before -

There will be four releases instead of five. We want to make sure we can actually get them all done in a timely manner and so one of them - the Clasificada S title - has been pushed back to early next year.

And the secret 70s Eurohorror will be a UHD/Blu combo. At least that's the plan right now. The UHD will just be the film and the Blu the film, the extras, and an "uncut" version of the film taken from lesser elements. The UHD might just be part of the limited edition but it will be at least 2000 copies so everyone who wants one will definitely have the chance to get it. And of course, unlike the Death Squad UHD it will be available both in the flash pre-order and during the sale proper, as both part of the bundle and on its own.

So the slate is:

SPECIAL SILENCERS - numbered Red Case edition
DEATH SQUAD - super limited UHD/Blu ray edition exclusive to the flash pre-order, normal limited single disc Red Case edition for the sale proper and beyond
SUPER SECRET 70s EUROHORROR - limited UHD/Blu-ray edition with slipcover
SPANISH HORROR/THRILLER FILM SET - limited two disc set w/ slipcover

I'm thinking about Friday October 20th for the flash pre-order and October 30th or 31st for the sale proper.

Some of this could change but that's the plan right now.

I donít think I have any of those red cases in my collection, so why not?

Re: Mondo Macabro goes BLU

Apparently these are selling quicker than expected; Mondo expects them to be 75% sold through today and possibly gone before the Halloween sale. I haven't seen either of them, but they seem to be well-liked, doing some poking around, and there's a very vocal evangelist on the other forum, so I went ahead and pulled the trigger.

Re: Mondo Macabro goes BLU

Iíd wager that most people buying them havenít heard of them. Such is the world we live in now.

I saw DOG GOD years ago, on a widescreen, subbed DVD from a popular hipster video store here, and Mondoís note that itís a U.S. home video debut tells me that the older disc was undoubtedly a boot (but then again, the store had plenty). The movie, though, is pretty strange as I recall, and not entirely in good ways. I was tempted by the two-pack, but if I can wait for the standard edition of DOG GOD, I can wait for the other one too. Havenít seen INFERNO, but Iím curious how it compares to the older version, which is much more highly regarded.

I also saw another Japanese Ďdog godí movie back in 2001 called INUGAMI (which is also part of this filmís Japanese title). It wasnít weird, but was pretty slow-moving and dull, so I guess if I had to choose one, the Ď77 film would get the nod.
