Must admit I thought it was a strange statement

Let it Ride is an instant purchase for me. One of Dreyfuss's best films (imo). If you've never seen it, go seek it out.

'SCALPS' (1987) - Coming to Blu-ray at the end of February from LE CHAT QUI FUME

Synopsis:
A western directed by Bruno Mattei and Claudio Fragasso. The commander of a Texan fort in the Civil War refuses to surrender to the Northerners, and tries to buy the local Indian tribe chief's daughter. The sage man refuses, and the Southerners massacre the tribe and abduct the young squaw anyway. The noble squaw manages to escape, and hides out with a rough rancher, who dislikes Indians, but hates the Southerners more. The odd couple joins forces, and tactics, to exert ultimate vengeance on the men at the fort.

MORE INFO TBA!

Release date: January 12

"9 Lives Fueled by Murder !

A mysterious murder and a strange, hushed conversation lead a blind musician into the path of a vicious killer in Sergio Pastore’s sleazy 1972 giallo: The Crimes of the Black Cat!

After a young model seemingly dies of a heart attack, her lover, Peter Oliver (Anthony Steffen, The Night Evelyn Came out of the Grave, Django the Bastard) and his butler begin their own investigation into the death and soon find an intertwined series of murders, all involving a cat and a yellow shawl. One step ahead of the police, but always right behind the killer, Peter manages to piece together clue after clue until the final, shocking showdown with the bloodthirsty killer.

Released in the shadows of Dario Argento’s wildly successful The Bird with the Crystal Plumage (and one of over 30 Italian giallo films produced in 1972), The Crimes of the Black Cat delivers the style of a classic giallo with sleazy, over the top violence that rivals Italian films from a decade later. Despite its pedigree of talent including Sylva Koscina (Lisa and the Devil), Renato De Carmine (Challenge to White Fang), Giacomo Rossi Stuart (Death Smiles at a Murderer, Shanghai Joe), Umberto Raho (Amuck, Summertime Killer), and Annabella Incontrera (The Case of the Blood Iris), an eerie score by Manuel De Sica (Dellamorte Dellamore), and behind the scenes work from Fabrizio De Angelis (producer of Zombie, The Beyond) The Crimes of the Black Cat has been largely ignored on home video. Previously unavailable in HD or in the proper aspect ratio, The Crimes of the Black Cat makes its worldwide Blu-Ray debut with an uncut 4K restoration via Cauldron Films."

Release date: January 12

[I]"Their Nightmare Was Further than Fear... It was BEYOND TERROR !

After a drug-fueled night of violence, a group of young degenerates and their hostages find themselves stranded in a remote, abandoned church in rural Spain. Their evening of debauchery and blasphemy quickly turns to greed when they discover a local legend that tells of a vast fortune guarded by mummies in the catacombs beneath the ruins. Their lust for the treasure is short-lived as they find that the supernatural horror in the catacombs is something further than fear… it is Beyond Terror!

Beyond Terror (Más allá del terror) is a lost gem that is long overdue for rediscovery. Never available on home video in the United States, Beyond Terror makes its worldwide Blu-ray debut from Cauldron Films with a brand new 4K scan from the camera negative that has been restored to its original grim glory. Co-written by Juan Piquer Simón (Pieces, Slugs), this early ‘80s hybrid unfolds like an homage to Amando de Ossorio’s Tombs of the Blind Dead, by way of Mario Bava’s Rabid Dogs, with a healthy dose of violence, gore, sex, eerie crypts and supernatural revenge!
"***CAULDRON FILMS UPDATE***
“The 2nd wave of Cauldron titles are running late and we will be shipping them as soon as they arrive but due to production delays they will not be shipping until very likely Feb 2021. Also, just to note, we will have the remaining copies up for sale once the preorders have shipped. Apologies for the delay but they will be worth the wait!

More news to come”"

"“We just finished an informative on-camera interview with David Sperling, cinematographer of TOXIC ZOMBIES (BLOODEATERS, FOREST OF FEAR) and other cult hits such as STREET TRASH. This interview will be included on our upcoming Blu-ray of TOXIC ZOMBIES. This film has been a tricky one to remaster as all pre-print material has been lost. The only remaining elements are 35mm theatrical prints. Luckily we have gotten our hands on a few such 35mm prints and have been working on frankensteining them together, using the best sections of each print to complete the best master possible."

Massacre video:

"MEN BEHIND THE SUN is also coming closer to completion. Our extensive 4k restoration has been underway for some time and, once completed, it will be moving to the color correction stage, and finally into UHD authoring. The OCN (original camera negatives) were scanned in 4k at a Hong Kong lab, which heavily delayed the scan due to Covid lockdowns, luckily we were allowed to finish the restoration here in the States.”"

'Bad Boy Bubby' (1993) - Pre-order available from the Australian Umbrella Films direct - $29.95

Release date: February 17

"Confined to a two-room slum for his whole life, Bubby knows only of the existence of himself and his mother, a religious freak who shares the bath, and her bed, with her son. But when Bubby's long-lost father (an alcoholic priest) returns home, and to his wife's bed, the jealous Bubby is driven to head out into the world. Abused and exploited by everyone from feminists to prison inmates, a policeman, animal lovers and the Salvation Army, Bubby, armed only with the few phrases he's learnt from his mother, has a tough entry into an inhospitable world. But others soon warm to this innocent idiot savant, and Bubby starts to find a place in the poisoned world from which he was confined. An international art house hit that won best film at the Venice Film Festival, Bad Boy Bubby is director Rolf De Heer's (The Tracker, Dingo) dark, quirky cult comedy masterpiece."

Culture Shock Releasing:

"We are completely thrilled by the package we received today. A few video masters for an upcoming unannounced SOV title that has never had any release besides a vhs on the directors own home label. Pictured are the D2, a BetaSP with film look (a process that a few SOV directors used to make their movie look like it was shot on film and not just video ie: Mr. Ice Cream Man), an SVHS, and a VHS. More info in the coming months on this one."




"New Blu-ray’s coming from our friends at Culture Shock Releasing

I know everyone is going to be excited for these once they’re announced!

“In keeping with last night's post, after months of back and forth negotiating, we finally signed 2 films from 1988 -- both of which are destined for Blu-ray! One has never been on disc EVER, and one had a foreign bare bones disc in the early DVD era. We’re going to change that!

These pics were just sent by one of the producers as they are packing the material up to be in our hands shortly. Here are the 16mm and 35mm elements!"
