Wonder if 88 will get any more obscure Fulci stuff out after Touch of Death?

Even the Raro version has a documentary.

I think I've pretty much lost my patience with 'The Italian Collection' now. I'm going to pick up the odd thing here and there, but I have no expectations at all.

Having a trailer and the Italian opening credits doesn't count as added extras and neither does a 3 sided bit of essay count as a booklet.

agree 110%. how they can think what they put on most release counts as extras is beyond me!

This is why I wait for HMV to get them.

Maybe they've employed the same business model as Shameless, with their "Shameless Trailer Reel of Films We've Already Released" :lol:

I suppose part of the problem is the UK market is quite small, a lot of people in the UK seem to prefer streaming and that the BBFC must certificate all bonus material, moving menus ect. American labels in this respect have a bigger advantage than UK ones. I think the economics of things must play a part.

I don't mind if stuff is free of extras, it's the film which is important. What I don't like is when they advertise extras but it's a trailer. It's like the olden days of DVD when the 'extras' were chapter points and a menu screen :lol:

Not just any menu screen, but an ANIMATED menu screen!

What annoys me with companies (including 88) is under bonus features they list things like -

Quote:

Transferred in HD from original 16mm materials
How the hell is that a bonus feature?
