Just ‘Over the Edge’ for me.

Another Zavvi steelbook cash in with the same release I got for £7.50 on amaray. Wouldn’t be surprised if a UHD comes as soon as the steelbook of ‘12 Monkeys’ goes OOP.

I'm only interested in Django 4K. As it's an American release only, I take it there's a UK version coming from another label (?)

Zavvi has got a listing for 'Django - 4K Ultra HD (Includes Texas Adios Blu-ray)' - £44:99

Release Date: May 25

"Django, have you always been alone? - Available for the first time in 4K ULTRA HD!

In this definitive spaghetti western, Franco Nero (Keoma, The Fifth Cord) gives a career-defining performance as Django, a mysterious loner who arrives at a mud-drenched ghost town on the Mexico-US border, ominously dragging a coffin behind him. After saving imperilled prostitute Maria (Loredana Nusciak), Django becomes embroiled in a brutal feud between a racist gang and a band of Mexican revolutionaries...

With Django, director Sergio Corbucci (The Great Silence) upped the ante for sadism and sensationalism in westerns, depicting machine-gun massacres, mud-fighting prostitutes and savage mutilations. A huge hit with international audiences, Django's brand of bleak nihilism would be repeatedly emulated in a raft of unofficial sequels. The film is presented here in its 4K UHD Blu-ray debut, with a wealth of extras. Also included is the bonus feature Texas, Adios on Blu-ray, which also stars Franco Nero, and was released as a sequel to Django in some countries."

***NEW TITLE ANNOUNCEMENT***

UK/US/CA TITLE: Weird Wisconsin: The Bill Rebane Collection (Limited Edition Blu-ray)

Release date: May 24

"Discover the first ever collection of works by Bill Rebane, the epitome of an independent regional filmmaker who built his own studio in the wilds of Wisconsin. Bringing together six films and loaded with new interviews and extras, Weird Wisconsin: The Bill Rebane Collection is an essential collection of features from one of America’s most tenacious outsider auteurs!"

FROM THE WILDS OF WISCONSIN HE CAME…

Alien Invasions! Haunted Pianos! Sentient Monster Trucks! Arrow Video is proud to present the first ever collection of works by Bill Rebane, the epitome of an independent regional filmmaker who built his own studio in the wilds of Wisconsin. He acted for Hitchcock, he searched for the arms of the Venus De Milo, he turned a VW Beetle into a giant spider and he’s still at work today!

Bringing together six films, all new to Blu-ray and in brand new restorations, Weird Wisconsin: The Bill Rebane Collection packs in a mutant astronaut bothering blissful sunbathers (Monster A Go-Go), a contagion apocalypse as seen from the vantage point of a remote mountain cabin (Invasion from Inner Earth), deadly alien spores from the rocks of Mars (The Alpha Incident), rural gothic and outright horror (The Demons of Ludlow), an eccentric ‘body count’ movie (The Game) and a comedy smash-‘em up that pits three hillbilly stooges against a talking Monster Truck with artificial intelligence (Twister’s Revenge).

Loaded with new interviews and extras, this is an essential collection of features from one of America’s most tenacious outsider auteurs!

MONSTER A GO-GO!

American astronaut Frank Douglas returns to earth as a ten-foot-tall radioactive humanoid monster! Independent filmmaker Bill Rebane’s first attempt at a feature film began life as Terror At Halfday but was abandoned when funds ran dry. It was then bought by legendary exploitation pioneer Herschell Gordon Lewis who shot extra footage, added a voice over and released it to drive-ins as MONSTER A GO-GO! Rebane himself called it “the worst film ever made”, but it’ll still give you the wim-wams!

INVASION FROM INNER EARTH

In the Canadian wilderness a group of pilots listen to reports of planes crashing, cars stalling and a deadly plague gripping the planet. As it becomes clear that the Earth is amidst an invasion, they barricade themselves in a cabin in the woods and wait for impending doom.

THE ALPHA INCIDENT

A space probe returns from Mars carrying a deadly organism that could destroy all life on Earth! While being transported across country by train the micro-organism is accidentally released, resulting in the quarantine of an entire train station. Those trapped inside must wait for the government to find a cure while trying not to sleep, because that’s when the organism strikes!

THE DEMONS OF LUDLOW

The population of a small, quiet town prepares to celebrate the bicentennial anniversary of its founding, but the town of Ludlow has a very dark past and when a piano arrives at auction, the ghosts its past return to seek retribution.

THE GAME (aka THE COLD)

Three bored millionaires gather nine people at an old mansion to play “The Game” … if they can meet and conquer their fears and they’ll receive a million dollars in cash. But all is not as it seems!

TWISTER’S REVENGE

TGSI is hilariously bad and I saw it at 'the pictures' which gives added nostalgia value. I was looking forward to this but the lack of TGSI (and a couple of other titles for completists) is a major disappointment.

All of them, if I'm being at my most polite, can be best described as 'rudimentary filmmaking'

You only need these if you have an overstocked beer fridge or your a completist (like me )

Looks good as a companion piece to the Grefe set, I think I will get Rebane and Grefe in a sale.

But where is Blood Harvest? It's a bit of a glaring omission.

"Kim Newman lets it slip (in a now deleted Tweet), that Arrow Video is working on a UK Daimajin Blu-ray release

More info TBA!"
