    My order of Zombie and Maniac are due tomorrow which is a couple of days earlier than the release date.

    I checked the tracking this morning and now the package says it isn't due until Wednesday. Doesn't make any sense as it is currently located only about 16 miles away from my home unless somehow it was flagged to be delivered after the official release date.

    I told myself I wasn't going to buy these new 4k editions but after seeing the early reviews and the Deepdiscount sale where I got them for $25 apeice I couldn't resist. This is for sure the last time I'm going to buy these though ;)

    Yeah, same here. And there is nothing more they can do after this anyways. They have squeezed out all the fine details that are available on the 16/35mm negatives.
    If they were shot on 65mm though, then we would probably have upgraded to 8K next :D

    Man, I can't even remember all the different VHS tapes, Laserdiscs, DVD:s and Blu-Ray's I gotten of these classics :eek:

    While I do wish this release wasn't so close to the limited blu-ray they just did I'm still very glad to see older horror films get this wonderful treatment and will buy this version as well.

    Ooooooo, nice! :p Daughters of Darkness is one of my absolute favorites, so I'm psyched for this one.

    I tried watching Daughters Of Darkness quite a few months ago now and couldn't really get fully invested in it. I did like the little bit that was in Bruges as it's one of my favorite places I've visited in Europe. I'm not a big vampire guy so I think that's also part of the problem here also lol. Anyway, easy skip for me. I'll be saving up for some of their other UHD's though.

    It's a very atmospheric and deep film at its heart, but I can understand someone not really being able to get into it. It's certainly not a film for all tastes.

    It is a damn beautifully shot film though, that much is undeniable. It should really shine with a 4K restoration.

    The François de Roubaix score is pretty great, in it's own right.

    ...and I'm embarrassed to admit that I still have yet to buy the soundtrack. But I guess that's probably a good thing now, since it will be included in the 4K set.

    ***NEW TITLE ANNOUNCEMENT***

    Coming soon from Blue Underground!

    Vigilante featuring a new 4K scan!

    Trailer: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=9GD1x2MWRkU

    New York City factory worker Eddie Marino (Robert Forster, Oscar nominee for JACKIE BROWN) is a solid citizen and regular guy, until the day a sadistic street gang brutally assaults his wife and murders his child. But when a corrupt judge sets the thugs free, Eddie goes berserk and vows revenge. Now there’s a new breed of marauder loose on the city streets, enforcing his own kind of law. His justice is swift. His methods are violent. He is the VIGILANTE.

    Fred Williamson (FROM DUSK TILL DAWN), Richard Bright (THE GODFATHER), Rutanya Alda (AMITYVILLE II: THE POSSESSION), Carol Lynley (THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE), Woody Strode (SPARTACUS), Joe Spinell (MANIAC) and Salsa legend Willie Colon co-star in this hard-hitting exploitation classic from director William Lustig (MANIAC COP 2) that many critics consider to be better - and more shocking - than the original DEATH WISH. Now Blue Underground is thrilled to present VIGILANTE in a pristine new restoration, scanned in 4K 16-bit from the original 35mm camera negative, with Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos audio, fully loaded with exclusive new and archival Extras!
