Yeah definitely something up. I put a second order in yesterday which has been dispatched today.

J Harker 16th January 2019 12:53 AM

I suspect I've queried this before but I'm afraid I'm getting senile. Does anyone know how badly cut the 101 releases of the Sho Kusogi movies Pray For Death and Rage of Honour actually are?

Rage of Honor is Uncut but the 101 release of Pray For Death is the R rated version slightly trimming some of the violence by seconds from the unrated cut.

Still holding out hope that they manage to find the deleted footage from Cherry Falls some day. Someone has to have it!

From an article on Bloody Disgusting a few years ago...

“So where is all of the footage that had to be cut in order to obtain the R rating? Wright insists that it still exists, stating twice in the commentary that studios never lose footage. They only misplace it. If this is indeed the case, then it’s quite possible buried below tons of lost footage in the Focus Features vault. If that is the case, Scream Factory couldn’t find it. There is still hope though. One day it might be discovered in the archives randomly, at which point Scream Factory (or another Blu-Ray distributor) can re-release the Blu-Ray with the uncut version”

Got this email today from 101

NEW TO THE BLACK LABEL
TWO CULT HORRORS!
The next two titles on the 101 Films Black Label will be released in August and September. A pair of gruesome cult horrors; one a David Cronenberg classic, and the other a lost gem from the early '90s. Both titles are presented in Limited Edition versions with slipcase and booklet, limited to 3000 units.

On 26th August we have RABID (1977), David Cronenberg's early classic, stacked with extras, including a brand new feature-length documentary and an audio commentary with the Soska Sisters... and on 23rd September a UK debut on any format for SKINNER (1993), starring Ted Raimi as the eponymous serial killer, in a film that was quite literally lost for several years.




A reminder that you can take advantage of our 2 for £25 offer on Black Label titles when you pre-order both, or purchase with any other title in the range.
RABID

Released 26th August 2019 on 2-disc Blu-ray
101 Films presents Rabid (1977), the enduringly tense and gruesome horror that marked a landmark in David Cronenberg’s early career. Title 009 on the 101 Films Black Label, this double Blu-ray is stacked with extras, including Part 1 of a new feature length documentary on Canadian horror film.

When Rose (Marilyn Chambers) suffers terrible injuries in a motorcycle crash, she is taken to a nearby clinic run by Dr Keloid for experimental skin-graft surgery. At first, the revolutionary procedure proves successful, but it soon leaves Rose with a strange orifice protruding from her armpit and an insatiable thirst for human blood. Hell-bent on satisfying her bloodlust, Rose leaves a trail of insane and uncontrollably aggressive victims, as the unknown virus engulfs North America in an orgy of frenetic violence.

Brand New Extras

The Quiet Revolution: State, Society and the Canadian Horror Film – Part One: Gimme Shelter: Cinepix and the Birth of the Canadian Horror Film, a brand new feature-length documentary exploring the social contexts behind Canadian horror cinema from filmmaker and author Xavier Mendik

SKINNER

Released 23rd September 2019 on Dual Format Blu-ray + DVD
101 Films presents Skinner (1993), a dark and brutal horror from director Ivan Nagy and writer Paul Hart-Wilden and title 010 on the 101 Films Black Label. Starring Ted Raimi (Spider-Man), Traci Lords (Blade), David Warshofsky (There Will Be Blood), Richard Schiff (Se7en) and Rikki Lake (Hairspray), Skinner is released for the first time in the UK on any format.

At one time thought a lost film, Skinner has been resurrected from obscurity in with a 4K restoration, so cult cinema fans can now witness this 90s horror gem in all its sinful, sleazy and violent glory.

Dennis Skinner seems like a normal enough guy but he has a very abnormal hobby. At night, he creeps through the back streets looking for potential victims, and when he finds one, carefully removes their skin with an elaborate collection of knives. Heidi, one of Dennis' victims, is on his trail, waiting for a chance to get her revenge, but in the meantime Dennis has developed a crush on Kerry and wants to find a way to show her he really cares.

Brand new extras
Limited edition booklet includes ‘Finding Skinner’ - Screenwriter Paul Hart-Wilden on the long and multi-faceted search for the ‘lost’ Skinner master
Additional extras

Under His Skin - Interview with Star Ted Raimi

Big Bad Wolves release

BIG BAD WOLVES (2013)
Released Monday 19th August 2019
Released on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK, this release includes Last Night at the Empire: Big Bad Wolves at FrightFest, a brand new documentary on the background and impact of the film, and its UK premiere at FrightFest in August 2013. In closing the festival it became the last film to screen in the Empire Leicester Square’s famous main screen, before it was refurbished and split in two. The short film includes archive interview footage with the filmmakers from FrightFest, along with new interviews with those present on the night.

A series of brutal murders puts the lives of three men on a collision course: The father of the latest victim now out for revenge, a vigilante police detective operating outside the boundaries of law, and the main suspect in the killings – a religious studies teacher arrested and released due to a police blunder.

Great film. Like mp I also have the US Blu.

Recommended for those who like their nail-biting crime thrillers with a thick vein of black comedy running through them.

I've answered my own question finally here. The 101 dual format release of SSSSSSS is totally uncut with the snake/mongoose fight cut for video intact. Quite a surprise really. I compared it to my uncut Scandinavian dvd version.

Incidently I've also noted on REWIND that the Blu-ray/DVD combo of PARADISE ALLEY from 101 Films is also totally uncut, with the footage of the tied up monkey intact, that was previously cut from cinema/video & the earlier dvd releases.

I have the Blu-ray but I'll check it even though it is probably uncut now.

EDIT:

Just checked the disc for the first time & the totally gratuitous neck-snapping is uncut, even though the film itself has been downgraded to a '15' for Bluy-ray !. The previous video cuts of the butterfly knife usage were restored for dvd as you probably know.

Thanks! Good to finally get that cleared up. :thankingyou:

But yeah, it shouldn't be a surprise because why would a censored HD master even exist? 101 have had some real clown shoes moments, but I can't imagine them censoring a film they've licensed before submitting it to the BBFC (who I'm sure have relaxed their stance on neck breaking shenanigans).

A film which really grew on me. Never could figure out why it was rated 18 in the uk & PG-13 in america though.

The Reaper Man@Cult Labs 5th September 2019 07:15 PM

Splits in the UK at that time were maybe construed as nunchucks.....;)

Demdike@Cult Labs 5th September 2019 09:55 PM

If i recall the BBFC took exception to a double ear clap and it gained the 18 due to this. Probably thought kids would go round doing it in the school yards or some other bollocks.
