So it will be available as a a HMV exclusive in stores and online next week along with McBain.

It is available direct from Arrow at the humble price of 6.99 or as part of their September preorder special.
Good news.

I seem to remember Calum saying they tried to arrange something but they were scheduling problems. I could be thinking of someone completely different though!

Well, picked this up today in the Cambridge HMV for the princely sum of 8.99 - they had a couple of copies on the shelf. Only a couple of quid over the RRP, that must be some sort of record for HMV.

The movie is pretty entertaining, although not much of a star vehicle for Paul Naschy, at least not until the final 20 minutes.

The best part of the DVD is the fantastic 20 odd minute featurette on Naschy's career by Calum - great stuff and definitely is going to result in some further outlay on some of Naschy's back catalogue. The missing erotic scenes are not bad either, although one or two are hilarious.

Speaking of hilarious, whoever wrote the blurb on the back of the DVD case must have watched a different film to me. "...his gang have the novel idea to transplant his brain into the corpse of their arch nemesis...". I think you have that the wrong way round!!

PQ is not bad, especially considering the origin of the picture. The picture is very sharp throughout but there is some print damage evident later in the film.
