Default Absurd (Aristide Massaccesi/Joe D'Amato, 1981)

aka Antropophagus 2/The Grim Reaper 2

It would be a major coup to put this out, as there has never been an English language DVD release...

This is a must for sure. With the sucess of the D'Amato reprise, topped with being the first release in the world, this would make a brilliant calling card for you guys.

With the BBFC relaxed, and it not being submitted for a rating in the last 10 years, I can't see why it wouldn't be passed uncut either

It would be even better if it was issued as a double with Anthropophagous: The Beast. Maybe then the Hollywood DVD issue of The Grim Reaper could be consigned to history.

I couldn't see either film having BBFC problems now.

Agreed, "that" scene really isn't that graphic anyways; it's almost laughable.

Damn, got an urge to go watch it now! lol

Yeah this one needs a release. The only thing I know about is a german DVD. I have made my own bootleg DVD from a vhs print so I need an upgrade.
Still not gotten around to actually watching it yet.

It's definitely owned by MGM - Joe D'amato's business partner Donatella Donati confirmed this to me several years ago - an entire library this film was part of was acquired in a major deal by MGM.

I'm sure we can alert certain groups to the material D'Amato shot... Who would then bitch and moan to MGM and boycott them and what-not until they are forced to hand over the rights for a pitance! mwa hahaha
