Then there's Graduation Day. Coming in September as a region free blu-ray/ DVD combo from Vinegar Syndrome, which boasts a 4k restoration.

Finally, I agree the fact that Unhinged is DVD only makes the numbered spine thing very undesireable.

Good luck to 88 Films, it's good to see such titles coming to the UK. But the only one I'd have bought would be Don't Go ... Were it not a load of rubbish.
I would argue wait and see.

I have the mothers day release already but whose to say it isnt the same transfer or even slightly imporved (as arrow have done with recent depalma films, ZFE and invasion of the body snatchers)
Vinegar syndromes release also sounds great but then lets here what 88 films are offering as i'm sure they are aware of this release already so maybe they will have access to the same transfer.

Do agree with the numbered spines issue but as for the quality of the releases i'd take a wait and see approach. If graduation day offers a similar transfer to vinegar syndromes i'll buy the uk release. If VS release is clearly better then thats the one i'll order.

Anyone who missed out on the limited coffin set of the Universal Monster films is in luck, as it is being re-released in time for Halloween:

Are the BFI releasing anything horror related this year do you know, or is it just that already mentioned sci-fi series?

I don't think they've announced their Q4 release schedule yet. Hopefully we'll see some interesting titles again like last year - in which their Q4 slate alone made them company of year, in my opinion.

It would only require a couple of decent releases to go with the Robbe-Grillet set and they'd win again.

I thought that, but it's different slightly to the original one



Contents look the same though

There is a 60th Anniversary Edition of Creature From The Black Lagoon coming too so whether this is just tieing in with that in some way. Has to be said if the contents are in some way better I shall be a little tugged off that I bought last years version.
