Detective Bureau 2-3: Go To Hell, Bastards! is a great little film. Amazon Video though? If that's the avenue they plan to go down then they can forget it!

Same. Seems some people on fb didn't read their previous post about 12 monkeys and elvira coming later in the year. Tbh if they hadn't hinted at those 2 titles I would have given up on the company.

I'm not buying their ltd editions, I'm not buying their re-releases and there's no way I'm signing up for amazon prime for a exclusive release.

I'll buy elvira and as long as it's also comes with the doc I'll buy 12 monkeys but yeah at the moment it's pretty much 1 release every 3 months I buy something from them.

"NEW US / CANADA TITLE: Deep Red (Limited Edition Blu-ray). From Dario Argento comes Deep Red – the ultimate giallo movie.

Release date: 10th April 2018

From Dario Argento, maestro of the macabre and the man behind some of the greatest excursions in Italian horror (Suspiria, The Bird with the Crystal Plumage), comes Deep Red – the ultimate giallo movie.

One night, musician Marcus Daly (David Hemmings, Blow Up), looking up from the street below, witnesses the brutal axe murder of a woman in her apartment. Racing to the scene, Marcus just manages to miss the perpetrator… or does he? As he takes on the role of amateur sleuth, Marcus finds himself ensnared in a bizarre web of murder and mystery where nothing is what it seems…

Aided by a throbbing score from regular Argento collaborators Goblin, Deep Red (aka Profondo Rosso and The Hatchet Murders) is a hallucinatory fever dream of a giallo punctuated by some of the most astonishing set-pieces the sub-genre has to offer.

"NEW UK / US / CANADA TITLE: Seijun Suzuki: The Early Years Vol. 2. Border Crossings: The Crime and Action Movies (Limited Edition Dual Format)

Boundary-breaking early crime thrillers, Mob Dramas and action movies from legendary cult director Seijun Suzuki.

The Sleeping Beast Within (1960) is a gripping crime thriller that sees a newspaper reporter’s search for his girlfriend’s missing father lead him into heart of the criminal underworld of Yokohama’s Chinatown. Its companion piece, Smashing the 0-Line (1960), follows two reporters’ descent into a scabrous demimonde of drug and human trafficking. In Eight Hours of Terror (1957), a bus making its precarious way across a winding mountain road picks up some unwelcome passengers. In Tokyo Knights (1961), a college student takes over the family business in the field of organised crime, while The Man with A Shotgun (1961) marks Suzuki’s first entry into the territory of the “borderless” Japanese Western.

There is another one, but it's only available on Amazon Prime channels, and I'd have thought most people here are more interested in something physical that they can buy, hold and keep!

"NEW UK TITLE: Detective Bureau 2-3: Go to Hell Bastards!
(Exclusive to Arrow Video on Amazon Channels)

Starring original Diamond Guy, Jo Shishido, Seijun Suzuki's Detective Bureau 2-3: Go to Hell Bastards! is a hard hitting, rapid-fire yakuza film that redefined the Japanese crime drama.

Detective Tajima (Shishido) is tasked with tracking down a consignment of stolen firearms, as the investigation progresses things take an anarchic, blood-drenched grudge match.

Rapidly paced, darkly funny, and extremely stylish, Detective Bureau 2-3: Go to Hell Bastards! is unlike anything seen before and rightly deserves its cult status. Suzuki's send up of post-war greed would go on to cement his domestic and international status as one of the leading directors to come out of Japan.

Arrow Video on Amazon Channels is available via the existing Prime Video app to watch anytime, anywhere through the Amazon Video app on smart TVs, iOs and Android mobile devices, Amazon Fire TV, Fire TV Stick and Fire tablets and games consoles, and through the web at www.amazon.co.uk/channels/arrowvideo.
