OCD ALERT!!!

Even Eureka are not immune to dropping the spine ball. Imagine my dismay, when I'd finished watching Der Mude Tod and went to put it on my shelf and found it was the only one of Lang's films they'd released that didn't have 'a Film by Fritz Lang' on the spine

Surprised this hasn't been mentioned yet. I've never seen the Sabata films so I'm looking forward to this set. Unlike some other labels Eureka tend to do these sort of sets at sensible prices.Screenshot_20210730-173849_Instagram.jpg

Full details:

'The Sabata Trilogy' - Blu-ray pre-order available at Eureka direct - £29:99

Release date: October 18

"Three iconic spaghetti westerns by director Gianfranco Parolini in one explosive Blu-ray set!

Sabata (1969) – Who he is and where he came from, no one knows. But the leading citizens of the Western town of Daugherty think he knows too much. And they want to silence him; forever. Get ready for the fast-paced, explosive action as Lee Van Cleef (For a Few Dollars More, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly) stars as Sabata, a mysterious, steely-eyed gunslinger who imposes his bullet-laced brand of justice on the town.

Adiós Sabata (1970) – Yul Brynner (Westworld, The Magnificent Seven) takes the reins as the title character in this action-packed sequel. Under the brutal rule of local garrison leader Colonel Skimmel, a group of Mexican revolutionaries hire gunslinger Sabata to rob a transport of Austrian gold in order to buy weapons. But Colonel Skimmel has other plans, taking the gold for himself and blaming the revolutionaries, but no scheming colonel is going to keep Sabata from earning his pay!

Return of Sabata (1971) – The great Lee Van Cleef returns as the famous freewheeling gunslinger Sabata. This third and final go-round for the enigmatic sharpshooter who administers a unique brand of justice in the American West in the years following the Civil War finds Sabata in the role of victim. Sabata’s skills as a gambler and thief are unparalleled. However, when a shifty band of desperadoes bilks him out of $5,000, he wants revenge!"

'Full Alert' (1997) - Blu-ray pre-order available at Eureka direct - £16:99

Release date: October 18

"A late career highlight from Ringo Lam, an action-packed tale of cops and robbers presented in the director’s inimitable style.

Perfectionist, workaholic Inspector Pao (Lau Ching-wan, Running Out of Time) finds himself up against Mak Kwan (Francis Ng, The Mission), a seasoned criminal intending to use his explosive skills to pull off a huge heist. Pao must use his own resources to stop Mak and prevent heavy civilian casualties.

With heartstopping car chasrs on the streets of Hong Kong and brilliant performances by the two leads, Full Alert is an intelligent, high velocity action movie considered to be one of director Ringo Lam’s finest works."

'Cinematic Vengeance' - Blu-ray pre-order available at Eureka direct - £46:99

Release date: Novembe r15

"8 Kung Fu Classics by Director Joseph Kuo

Although his name may not be as instantly recognisable as some of his contemporaries, Joseph Kuo was an incredibly successful filmmaker who consistently produced crowd-pleasing spectacles always in line with what audiences at the time wanted to see.

Often handling writing, directing, and producing duties, the success of this multi-hyphenate filmmaker is even more remarkable considering that the majority of his films were produced independently, at a time when the kung-fu genre was dominated by the big Hong Kong studios. Cinematic Vengeance! collects eight of these independent productions, all fully restored and making their worldwide debuts on Blu-ray"

I ain't watched the SF disc yet....it's rated PG13 on the back cover!

However, viewing it again I don't suppose a cut version has lost much and I wouldn't put off people with a low tolerance for this sort of stuff; it's just my OCD that prevents me from having a cut version in my collection.

EDIT: I've seen some claims the shots of the raccoon writhing on the floor were done with an animal that was deliberately poisoned... I don't know if that is true or not?
According to DVD Compare, the Eureka release is complete, with the previous cuts being reinstated
