Yeah smaller stores only seem to get certain titles.

Not bad at all!

I'd like to see Mad Foxes get some love, although I can't really see any UK company releasing it in the foreseeable future, unfortunately.

Hopefully someone like Code Red, Scorpion, or Synapse will release it in the US. I think it has recently received a German/Austrian release with a Rick Melton artwork slapped on the front, however I have no idea what the quality of the disc is like.

Yeah, that Austrian disc already goes for silly money, BE. I really don't understand what the problem is with the rights on this one. After all, Diethrich was quite happy for it to get an Austrian release. Perhaps he doesn't want any third party releases?, but on typing that, what about the Anchor Bay Franco box set that was doing the rounds a few years ago?

This is mildly amusing.

Arrow want you to pay for them to land in the USA.

When this happens all people will do is moan about what is being released over there compared to back home. There's evidence of this already on here.

I hope they don't do a Mondo Macabro and go exclusively R1.

That's not really true though. They're going to the US whether the crowd funding is successful or not.

Indiegogo is not only a good way for us to gauge your interest after all North America is a fiercely competitive market but also for us to have the funds available to pick up more titles for release without there being a big gap in our schedule and have you get bored and forget about us. Without Indiegogo we would need to wait til our first releases go on sale before we can then see what appetite is like for a new label and the kinds of titles we release with the approach we take. Indiegogo enables us to weigh all that up in advance meaning we can continue at our usual pace which in the UK is about three to four releases a month.
They've also implied that they will be going back to their roots, releasing more Italian films. With two markets to recoup the costs they're able to restore the titles themselves, rather than rely on the often poor quality masters they've been given in the past from Italian licensors. Considering some of your comments in recent years about not liking the more mainstream releases from Arrow and preferring their earlier output, this should be a positive for you?

Not sure if that will show if you're not on Facebook. Should be shipping next week Arrow are saying. Hopefully they ship out the orders from the older site ASAP. This is the last outstanding item from the previous site? It has to be, surely. Looking forward to checking that booklet too.

I wonder if they'll have The Girl Who Knew Too Much at the London Comic Con. I'm getting into London on the last day of the event, and am wondering whether to bother to check it out before heading to my hotel.
