Update on Raw Meat:
Update on Amsterdamned & The Lift:
Tomas Milian who was in Lucio Fulci's Don't Torture A Duckling, Beatrice Cenci, and Four Of The Apocalypse died March 22, 2017 of a stroke in Miami, Florida.

And for the second announcement:
"SURPRISE TITLE ANNOUNCEMENT: We're bringing DOWN (aka THE SHAFT) to Blu-ray & DVD later this year! Dick Maas's remake of THE LIFT will finally be presented in its proper 2.35:1 aspect ratio on U.S. home video!!"
The Lift??? I have been wanting to see that for almost 20 years. Ever since I discovered The Video Graveyard website.
Also: how did Blue Underground get Raw Meat from MGM/UA/Fox?
Also: how did Blue Underground lose Fulci's City of the Living Dead / The Gates of Hell?
Rights likely reverted to another party and Blue Underground was able to more easily license it, or they were persistent and someone caved. And their license for City of the Living Dead probably expired.
NEW RELEASE UPDATE:
Maniac? The Prowler? Fulci's Zombie? Shock Waves?
I would guess those are Blue Underground's most popular films.
I guess the real question is: does bluray upgrade mean it's a title that was only available on DVD prior to this?
I'm thinking it does.
The titles you mentioned all have bluray releases (not sure what's still in print though).
How did I miss the announcement for The Shaft (aka Down)! That movie is a riot. I lost it when Aerosmith's "Love In An Elevator" kicks in for the end credits.
Day one for me. I wonder if any more of those great Artisan/LionsGate foreign titles from that era are up for grabs? Flashback, The Pool, Cut, etc?
Stendhal Syndrome details:
Release date: July 25, 2017
Wow awesome. It's about time someone revisited Argento on blu. Bird With the Crystal Plumage, Phenomena, Stendhal, Suspiria. Fuck yes.
so i guess all blue underground releases are now $40 right out of the gate?
It's the MSRB price, it's mandatory. You want to pay for that amount, go to Barnes and Noble. *rimshot*
Gotta be Deathdream. I can't think of any other BU titles that are "highly requested" that other labels haven't already stolen away.
