Any chance of releasing this excellent mid 80s giallo starring Donald Pleasance? Doesn't seem to be out on DVD anywhere in the world!

Haha, not an April fool, no. Nothing Underneath was directed by Carlo Vanzina in the mid 80s, and is a real 80s time capsule as well as a great giallo. Theres also a ridiculous psychic bond angle between the lead and his sister. It used to be very easily found in a big box ex rental, but isn't out on DVD anywhere. Reportedly the Japanese vhs is the best quality, but I'd love a DVD of it.

There is rumor of a Swedish DVD release but no specs as of yet.

I'd like to see PATHOS/A TASTE FOR FEAR and DOMINO on DVD.

It was classified for DVD by the BBFC in 2002 but appears never to have been released.

Why do companies submit films and then not release them even if they pass uncut, as is the case with 'Snuff'.
Ok snuf'fs not a good film in any way but surely with its history and a good publicity campaign I imagine you could shift quite a few units.
It must cost these companies money to submit films for classification, so why hold them back, especially if you get an 'uncut' decision. The only advantage in doing this that I can see is the rights to the film would probably become more valuable to the holder if some other company was wanting to get hold of them if they've already been passed as uncut.

I'm surprised about Snuff too. It's a truly abysmal film but would probably sell quite well owing to its reputation alone. Blue Underground submitted it back in May 2003 and it was passed uncut. After that - zilch. Perhaps the distributor (or lack of one) lost interest.

I'm still waiting for Death Wish 3 & 4. The cuts were waived years ago but they still haven't been released.

Anyone know.?

Nothing Underneath is an old fave of mine and the Avatar ex-rental tape I have of it has been wheeled out many a time so it has been on my radar and we've looked at picking it up but will have to see what it costs. It's great fun to release films like this and Phantom of Death and plug a gap in the collection but... they don't make any money!
