    Great info. Much to the dismay of my wife, I feel a serious Franco bender coming on. I just ordered all the Franco Blus. Throwers book and these should dominate the rest of 2015.

    Angelman, you're also missing Al Perieria vs. the Alligator Ladies (Region B).

    Also, The Erotic Rites of Frankenstein isn't out until late July, so technically it's still upcoming. Also, Severin noted that they just secured 3 more Franco titles for Blu-ray at Cannes this past week, although no reveal on the titles.

    Updated. This list is looking pretty good.

    Hey - I saw in an early post you listed dome Franco as coming from Severin (not the three recently announced, but the other two - where did you get that info? I can find it anywhere.

    Is Al v. Aligator Ladies for sure Reg. B? - it is listed everywhere as all-region...

    Al Pereria could be Region Free, I'll check my disc when I get home. I forget if it is or not...

    Severin has Devil Hunter/Cannibal Terror double-bill coming to Blu (which was announced on Severin's Facebook on May 9th via a photo of an old theatre marquee picture from Paris when Cannibal Terror was playing), which you had listed before, but seemed to have removed, PLUS 3 more titles they haven't announced yet.

    Angelman, just a heads up re: Al Pereria vs. the Alligator Ladies, it's more akin to his later films, like the One Shot productions and Paula-Paula, so if you're not a Franco purist or a fan or that period of his filmmaking, it's not an easy film to get in to and you'll probably hate it. That said, it's his best film post-1990 in my opinion and I loved it.

    I watched the trailer before I ordered and got the flavor of it pretty quick. I'm actually OK with his later output because there is so little separation between artist and output with Franco that his later films, even with their painfully cheap production value, hold some charm in the context of his overall life and filmography. They are indicative of his age and the changing landscape of the industry. To me Franco the man (and his life) and Franco's films are all part of one fascinating experience.

    I'd love to be able to put out some of these later-era ones myself, especially the ones without significant releases.

    There is a seller on Amazon and on eBay with it. I believe Amazon.de may have it as well.

    I don't know what the shipping cost would be but it's only 13 euros on Amazon Spain. I may pick that up along with Empusa.
