    It seems to me that Mondo Macabro is also releasing Fox With the Velvet Tail on blu.

    Announced today, 88 will release Zombie Creeping Flesh (Hell of the Living Dead) on Blu-ray. Hopefully a new master will be created since the BU release was very problematic.

    Several people raised this question on Facebook, and as of yet, 88 Films has not responded. Despite reports of DNR, missing frames (with resulting audio jumps), and poor colour correction, one member called the Blue Underground release perfect, while another praised the transfer as gorgeous. Personally, I will not consider a purchase unless 88 Films addresses these issues.

    Touch of Death is probably my favorite from Fulci's later period. Glad to hear it's coming to blu-ray. Hopefully the PQ will be good...curious to know what the source will be. If I recall correctly, Media Blasters claimed that the only available element was a tape master at the time when they released their DVD.

    Isn't Touch of Death mostly made up of footage of other Fulci films, Cat In the Brain, particularly?

    I have this one in my collection though it's been awhile since I've seen it but I think you're right that it's made up of other films with a small story thrown in to pad it. I may have to watch this again to see if I want it but I probably will anyway since I'm an Argento/Fulci completist. :)

    I haven't seen Touch of Death in a long time but I think it is the other way around, Cat in the Brain uses footage from Touch of Death and another movie (Sodoma's Ghost?).

    Yes, that's correct.

    Yep. Cat in the Brain uses footage from Touch of Death, Ghosts of Sodom, Bloody Psycho, Hansel and Gretel, Murder Secret and Massacre.
