    It appears that Reincarnation of Peter Proud had a DVD release from Korea. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Reincarnat...&sr=1-1&keywords=reincarnation+of+peter+proud

    Don't Go in the House has been released on blu-ray already from Subkultur.

    Yeah I read reviews of that Korean import and it gets roasted. Apparently it's a really bad, half-assed transfer that looks worse than a VHS. My self-made DVDR is probably better quality. It needs a real release.

    As for the DGITH Subkultur release, I'd originally planned on getting it until I heard about Scorpion's impending release, which will supposedly be better. But the wait for that is becoming ridiculous.

    Let's see if my old theory proves correct again.

    D.C. Cab is playing currently in HD on HBO.

    I await the Blu Ray announcement soon. ;)


    P.S. - House is playing on HBO in HD too. Arrow just annouced.....Ehemm, clears throat, Ehemm.... whistling.....

    My theory lives:cool:

    I must have not seen this when you originally posted it. But yeah, I know what you mean. Im a Giallo fiend and I've wondered why people don't seem to talk about them much now.

    Torso, Deep Red, and What Have You Done to Solange? were among my first gialli. I loved all three and decided to seek out as many gialli as I could, including Black Belly of the Tarantula, Short Night of the Glass Dolls, My Dear Killer, and The Bloodstained Shadow, and while these are generally well-made, they just didn't give me the same thrill. I did find a few that I found really engaging, such as Seven Bloodstained Orchids (which Code Red has announced) and The Fifth Cord (which I would gladly upgrade to Blu). I generally enjoy Argento's and Martino's entries, though there are exceptions - I was actually a bit disappointed by *gasp* The Bird with the Crystal Plumage.

    I went deep with Gialli for a while and lots of the ones I really love never saw anything beyond Greek VHS releases. I live the crass ugly ones and the classy mystery ones. More than slashers, it's my go to "killer/whodunit" genre.

    So many good off the radar gialli. Bring em on.

    My point was merely that my initial enthusiasm dampened after seeing so many of them. The ones I still like tend to have an aspect of sleaze and/or suspense to them. I've said it before, but the classy mysteries, among which I would count The Bloodstained Shadow and The House with the Laughing Windows, simply don't hit me in the gut.

    Have you checked out Naschy's Blue Eyes of the Broken Doll, Kim? You might dig that one.

    I haven't, but thanks for the recommendation! :) What other gialli is it comparable to?

    I don't disagree, (I find Plummage and HOL Windows fairly dull) but many that I DID fall in love with were the deep cuts, the ones that I had to dig to find. Just saying... Don't give up on it. There's some wacko stuff out there you might love.

    None I can think of. A lot of the same trappings are present, but they're handled differently. You'll definitely get your sleaze quotient (Naschy's "handyman" takes a live-in job in the home of three man-starved sisters), so there's that. The murders are less elaborate and staged for suspense as opposed to gory spectacle. The score is a big departure, too. The murder theme is a variation of Frere Jacques--and it works, if you can believe that. If you like Naschy I think odds are good that you'll enjoy it.

    In no specific order:

    1. Blood Beach
    2. Alligator
    3. Alone In The Dark (1982)
    4. Superstition
    5. Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark
    6. Curse Of The Black Widow
    7. The Kindred
    8. Deathdream
    9. Cast A Deadly Spell
    10. Piranha 2- The Spawning

    Also, anything with Paul Naschy, any more Hammer titles, and the Blind Dead series. There are a lot of great movies coming out on the format right now, but with these my collection would be complete.

    X-Rated out of Germany recently released The Sister of Ursula on Blu-ray, and there's even a Caps-A-Holic comparison for it too.

    It appears that the Sister of Ursula blu-ray is not English friendly.
