    I like The Wind a lot too after a second viewing, but I think Mastorakis' best is still 1984's Blind Date.

    Code Red moved their release up to July 7th, same day as Arrow.

    So Arrow has now moved their release up to June 30th. Complete with a gold "Director Approved" sticker. :lol:

    Of course it's real, it's from the updated listing on Amazon.

    That would be Jack Hill's signature, the film's writer and director. :evil:

    Roger Corman oddly doesn't even show up at all on the film's Imdb page, although he apparently produced and distributed the film at the time.

    From Cinema Arcana's Facebook!:

    "Not officially announced, but Arrow Films & Video have recently confirmed a pair of especially noteworthy upcoming U.S. releases by way of promotional postcards. First up is Carlo Lizzani's WAKE UP AND DIE (1966), an early Italian thriller detailing a hood's crime spree and the media circus that surrounds it. Gian Maria Volonte is the cop in pursuit, and Maestro Ennio Morricone provides the score. Secondly, and probably of much more interest to Cinema Arcana readers, is Sergio Martino's long-windedly titled YOUR VICE IS A LOCKED ROOM AND ONLY I HAVE THE KEY (aka Gently Before She Dies, 1972). This Poe-inspired gothic giallo stars perennial Luigi Pistilli as an alcoholic writer in a dilapidated villa whose abused wife has had enough. She hatches a scheme for revenge with niece Edwige Fenech, but things don't go as planned.


    Additionally, the company has also announced they have more gialli in the pipeline -- with potentially more Martino! Let's hope they get to his *real* heavy hitters sooner rather than later!"

    An Arrow Video representative went on a bit of a Q and A spree at Blu-ray.com this morning.

    Lots and lots of good stuff!

    Ringu's lack of commitment either way is kinda interesting. There's speculation that Criterion has it. But perhaps it's one of two things, either Arrow's still working on it or they haven't even thought about it but were intrigued so they had no answer.

    I figure Universal may still have it but after this much time who knows. Seems kinda doubtful Shout will.

    Amazon will most likely go much cheaper before the release date...as they have with the previous Arrow US Blu-rays.

    Yeah, I'll definitely hold off.
