    DVDBeaver reviews and compares the new Diabolical Dr. z Redemotion Blu-ray to the Mondo Macabro DVD: http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film6/blu-ray_reviews_80/the_diabolical_dr_z_blu-ray.htm

    "There are striking differences in the Mondo Macabro, dual-layered, DVD image as compared to the new Kino/Redemption 1080P. Judging by the running times it looks as though the DVD was taken from a PAL source and it is significantly softer than the, single-layered, Blu-ray. The 1.66:1 framed HD image has dramatically more information in the frame, contrast is nicely layered, textured grain is visible and consistent, and the overall image is excellent. There are still a few speckles but overall the new visuals are an outstanding upgrade."

    Wow. That looks like a huge upgrade. I'm excited.

    I've had the Dutch DVD of Demoniac for a very long time and sold it, now I'm interested in picking up a Blu-ray of it

    now, I know there is a Redemption edition, but also a couple by X-Rated in Germany

    I've been looking around and there seem to be 2 main releases

    1) a Blu-Ray edition of the director's cut and extra's
    2) a more lavish edition with a Blu-Ray and 3 DVD's BUT where the director's cut from release 1 is on Blu-Ray, on release 2 it's only on DVD?

    does someone here can shed some more light on this? if true, I find it a little scummy of them of releasing a 4-disc set that would have the most important thing (the director's cut) on inferior media than the 1-disc release

    The Redemption release contains is the 94-minute French Theatrical cut (also known as the Producer's Version, which is also the same cut as on the Synapse DVD) and the 69-minute Demoniac cut from the US Wizard VHS, both in HD.

    The 4 Disc X-Rated Hardbook set (which also happens to have 4 different cover options) contains the 94-minute French Theatrical Cut on Blu-ray, and the 3 DVDs individually contain that same Producer's cut, the 100-minute Director's Cut (which contains the XXX stuff), and a slightly different Demoniac cut taken from the Canadian VHS release which happens to be slightly different than the Wizard VHS Demoniac cut on the Redemption release. It also features individual scenes taken from the Sexorcism XXX cut and The Sadist of Notre Dame (Franco's semi-re-make of Exorcism [forthcoming to Blu-ray from Severin]) that aren't featured in the full cuts on the 4 discs.

    I don't need the poster, but I've been enjoying the pins companies have been doing, oddly. So both films and the pin for me.

    ****Edit: Updated the releases list above. ****
    ALSO: There will be a special edition of the next Thrower Franco book through Strange Attractor - they just haven't announced it yet (per the publisher).
    AND: Le Chat Qui Fume told me there would be an announcement this month, when they close all the extras on their releases. Fingers crossed.

    From Le Chat Qui Fume Facebook

    "Front Cover of our DVD / Bluray Edition of the film of Jesus Franco, the devil's possessed (aka Lorna the exorcist) with Lina Romay, Jacqueline Laurent And Pamela Stanford. A world premiere in HD for this film.
    This is a title that has been a lot of delay because as we have already said, the film will be a montage between 2 different films... to get to the longest version, and one of it was in a Bad condition. Despite our restoration work there will always be scratches and other small spots. We were also sent the true final scream of lina romay because on the DVD it was the English cry. We had to redo the entire assembly and check it out. But we're nearing the end.
    In April, this title will be released in June with the diary of a nymphomane.
    To follow..."
