Default Zeder?

sorry if this has been covered before - this is my first post

The House of Laughing Windows

is my favourite Giallo and i was lucky enough to see its 35mm release last year.
if you haven't seen it please do so - it is a superior example of the genre imho!

anyway, Pupi Avati made another horror in the 80s called Zeder and I havent been able to track it down.

I dont know who has the rights but there seems to be a few copies on amazon starting at about 30. this could be an amazing addition to the shameless catalogue.

anyone seen it or have any info?

I have the Image US disc of this ( which wasn't a bootleg! ) which was released years ago. It's a good film which I really should rewatch sometime soon. Very atmospheric and creepy in places.

However it is full frame and certainly not up to the quality of today's discs. I agree - an upgraded version would make for a great Shameless title. Good suggestion

Hi Lex,

I also like Avati's Laughing Windows. The more I see it, the more it fascinate me.

Zeder is available in an English Friendly DVD edition (20th Century Fox) here:

it'll cost you 20 euros.

Cheers.

So the image release is going under the title of revenge of the dead? If so, i may be tempted on this,as i aint seen it and avati's house with laughing windows was superb.

The Image release was under the Zeder title ( in one of those horrible 'snapper' cases )

Zeder is a good film - I like it anyway and an ideal candidate for a Shameless release. Could I also nominate another of Avati's hard-to-find titles in the shape of The Arcane Enchanter? I'm sure Shameless would sell a pile of those, as it's had such a scant release and is hard to get hold of.

I have the old Image release of Zeder. I believe there is an Italian release of it on DVD and It's widesceen. It's a good film with plenty of atmosphere.

I picked up the UK DVD of The House of Laughing Windows. The picture quality is OK, but it's a bare bones disc with zero extras.
