    The Bird news is old, of course. However, nice to know it's moving forward. I can't imagine why each of these shouldn't find their way to my door. Things have been thin on the ground from BU lately, so this is especially welcome.

    If you haven't seen Strip Nude for Your Killer I say go for it. It's one of my favorite sleasy giallo films.

    Bird With the Crystal Plumage is a great film. one of Argento's best in my opinion. I have the old DVD and will probably trade it in for the new one.

    I've never seen Seven Death's but hope to soon.
     
  16. Same here, cannot wait.

    Strip Nude For Your Killer might just be one of the top five film titles of all time.

    I'm glad about it not being a boxed set with an extra disc "exclusive." I bought the Christopher Lee Boxset just for The Bloody Judge, and now it's available on its own.

    Between these films and the BLIND DEAD set, Blue Underground is back in my "A" books this fall. Between these three gialli, and the Martino films being released by NoShame in September, giallo fans have a lot to be excited about this year. I still wish Blue Underground had went with the proposed box set, but I'll take these any way I can get them.

    If you're a creative kind of guy, you could always buy them all and specially make your own. I'm sure it wouldn't be too difficult. :)
