I think about 99% of us who likes to watch movies has a widescreen TV so these releases are just not acceptable.

I think Shameless should consider releasing this!
Knife of Ice was a release i was looking forward to. Then its release was delayed and Mya end up offering us the version you mention with a poor print.

It would be great if Shameless did pick it up for release.

It wasn't MYA who released Knife of Ice, but the grey-market outfit WHAM! USA, Dem.

I too would like to see the film get a proper remastered anamorphic release. Lenzi has a reputation as being a bit of a sleazy director after Cannibal Ferox, but when watching his older gialli (Spasmo, Seven Blood Stained Orchids etc.) you realise how much talent he has.

Also, the Japanese version of Knife of Ice was improperly translated on the cover, so is actually called Ice of Knife!

A few more I'd like to see in the UK...

Exorcist 3 (but I doubt Warner would license it out, but I'd love to see a rebuild of the original film before the studio interference)
Nightbreed (as above)
The 5 Days of Milan (the only Argento I have yet to see)
Catacombs
Specters
The Video Dead
Lost in Time (Waxwork 2)
The Silent Night Deadly Night sequels

Excellent little gem. Bava's outstanding b/w-cinematography is really eye-catching!

Greetings!

What would be the chances of Arrow or Shameless getting hold of those Amicus, Tigon, Walker and Warren films and giving them the Blu treatment?

And since Shamless have surprised everyone by getting Four Flies, how about getting hold of The Ghoul and Legend of the Werewolf? Those Tyburn films are loooooong overdue for a DVD release (or even BD, now).

The Five Days of Millan is to much of a comedy for shameless to release IMHO. Maybe that would be one for Arrow Acadamy?

Bava's / Freda's (I know he left the film) I VAMPIRI was to my surprise a nice little horror
I honestly didn't think I would like it so much and it was the first Italian horror but as the R0 Image was pricey I bought the anamorphic dvdr of the film
Would really like to see this film w/Tim Lucas commentary
There is a German dvd under a different title but I read its not Eng friendly
A nice UK release would be great to my Bava collection
