    you're forgetting to take into account that the German DVD is PAL. Image should be releasing this one sometime - I've heard some progress has been made.

    I really want to see this movie but currently I'm waiting for a decent version to come out. The VCI version seems to have a pretty bad video transfere and thats keeping me from buying it... I keep hearing that Imagine's going to release a good version of this movie, but no one seems to know when... does anyone on this forum have any idea when it might be availible?

    The VCI print is decent, but not superb. I assume the Image one will be out this summer, and it should have a stills gallery, trailer, commentary by Tim Lucas, and maybe a few other supplements.

    Don't see it mentioned in this thread, but a decade or so ago Dark Sky announced a release of this film that was pulled due to rights issues, but not before a few copies went out to reviewers. These copies would go for $100-$150 on ebay and were the only places to get the Kill, Bava, Kill featurette and the Tim Lucas commentary. Right now I'm so happy that I never dropped the coin for that Dark Sky release as this new Blu will include those features and the Lucas commentary has been greatly updated and expanded (per the man himself on Facebook).

    I remember that very well. I've been waiting a long time for those supplements to come out in some form.

    OH GREAT! JUNE 13... I will be a puddle on the floor by that time. A melted popsicle. (Summer is not a good time for horror.) (And hasn't it been 2013 when Kino released the last Mario Bava Collection disc? That was a long-ass time ago.)

    Well... at least I have that Anchor Bay collection version to tide me over until June 13... (Which I just bought a couple months ago.)

    I remember when that happened. Over the years, I considered plunking down the money for the Dark Sky edition, but just never wanted to pay what people were asking. Ebay has two listings right now, one for $99 and another for $43.25. The latter price likely shows that worked of the Kino release is already spreading. I am glad that I never paid a premium price for the DS disk!

    A similar thing happened with A Cat in the Brain. Image was working through Alfredo Leone to release a version under their Euroshock Collection banner. Copies squeaked out in 2001 or 2002 even though the release was officially pulled when Grindhouse asserted that they owned the rights (and that Leone never had them in the first place).

    Lot of pauses in his Black Sabbath commentary, though.

    Which I know is on the Anchor Bay disc. Anyone know if he has a commentary on the Kino Blu/DVD?

    Interesting - have not heard that one - his Blood and Black Lace commentary is wall-to-wall info and the Jess Franco ones are pretty great.

    I certainly stand by his Lisa and the Devil, The Girl Who Knew Too Much, and Bay of Blood commentaries. But, yeah, the Black Sabbath AB one is full of holes / gaps.

    Arrow announced their UK release today on Facebook:

    "NEW UK TITLE: Kill, Baby… Kill! (Dual Format Blu-ray & DVD)

    A spine-tingling tale of Gothic terror whose influence would resonate within the genre for years to come.

    Pre-order your copy via Arrow: http://bit.ly/2t2riZD
    Pre-order your copy via Amazon: http://amzn.to/2t2l5ww
    Release Dates: 11 September 2017

    In 1966, after a three-year hiatus, director Mario Bava (Black Sunday, The Girl Who Knew Too Much) returned to his preferred stomping ground of horror, conjuring up a spine-tingling tale of Gothic terror whose influence would resonate within the genre for years to come.

    In the early 20th century, pathologist Dr Paul Eswai (Giacomo Rossi-Stuart, The Last Man on Earth) is summoned to a remote Carpathian village to perform an autopsy on a woman who died under mysterious circumstances. With the locals convinced they are being haunted by the spirit of a young girl who died years ago, can the steadfastly rational doctor find a logical explanation to the strange goings-on… or will his rational beliefs be destroyed by the dark secret that lies within the crumbling walls of the ancient Villa Graps?

    Co-starring the unforgettable Erika Blanc (The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave, So Sweet… So Perverse), Kill, Baby… Kill! arrived at the tail-end of the golden age of Italian horror and is regarded by many as Bava’s masterpiece.

    SPECIAL EDITION CONTENTS:
    • Restored 2K high definition digital transfer
    • High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) and Standard Definition DVD presentations
    • Original mono Italian and English soundtracks (lossless on the Blu-ray Disc)
    • English subtitles for the Italian soundtrack
    • Optional English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing for the English soundtrack
    • New audio commentary by Tim Lucas, author of Mario Bava – All the Colors of the Dark
    • The Devil’s Daughter: Mario Bava and the Gothic Child, a new video essay by critic Kat Ellinger
    • Kill, Bava, Kill!, an interview with assistant director Lamberto Bava
    • Yellow, Semih Tareen’s short film homage to the cinema of Mario Bava
    • Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Graham Humphreys

    FIRST PRESSING ONLY: Collector’s booklet featuring new writing by critic Travis Crawford"

    Looks like it'll have everything Kino is releasing along with some new stuff, including a Bava inspired short film made by my friend Semih Tareen. Definitely excited to pick this version up!
