    Awesome, Suddenly In The Dark is much more of my bag and I'm always up for some more Franco.

    I'm curious what giallo they've picked up, as Lizard in a Woman's Skin was a surprise coming from them. So it could be almost anything (of lesser-known gialli that is).

    Can anyone tell me if Mondo Macabro Blu Rays are only sold through online retailers? I've been trying to pick up Lizard in a Woman's Skin for awhile now when I head into Pittsburgh, but they never seem to have it in stock. I am not much of an online buyer.

    Honestly I'm not sure, I haven't bought a film in a store for at least 10 years.

    I believe so, or at least not available in any medium to large retail store. Independent cult movie/record stores may order them in, but that's probably your only hope of seeing them in the wild of a physical store.

    But back to the new announcemnts, cannot wait for Mil sexos tienne la noche/Night of a Thousand Pleasures!

    Probably, but only because most brick and mortar retailers have opted not to carry their titles in-store.

    Other than the exclusive red Blu-Ray case variants they sell through their store, I don't think Mondo Macabro has any titles that are specifically intended to be exclusive to online sales only.

    My luck with online retailers is purely satanic; especially Amazon.

    It might be worth mentioning then that Suddenly In the Dark will be an online only release:
    http://forum.blu-ray.com/showpost.php?p=12530101&postcount=1358

    So I also take that to mean the "other two titles" being the new Franco and the yet announced giallo will NOT have Limited Edition web exclusives. They will ultimately be as hard to get in brick stores as their other titles I presume, which were never easy even in the hay day of DVDs.

    I will definitely be picking up all 3 of these films announced by Mondo Macabro, all 3 of these movies sound interesting. I am most excited about the Jess Franco film, but they all sound like they will be good. I can't wait for their next one which should be out in October I think, Private Vices, Public Virtues, that one sounds weird as hell.

    You can already pre-order Private Vices, Public Virtues in the limited slipcover version, which begins shipping closer to the end of August. The regular retail version isn't due until October though.

    I might go ahead and get this one from MM direct instead of waiting for it from Amazon.com since it comes with a booklet, and it sounds like it will be very good. I love every blu ray I have from MM, I can't wait for the Jess Franco one they announced. I wish they could do more blu rays, like 1 every month or something, Lizard in a Woman's Skin was amazing. I know it takes time to do these releases, so I am happy with their quality, just wish they could do more, but I don't want them to rush through them and their quality suffer.

    They've sold 450 in less than 48 hours, and will be doing a final listing of the last 50 this Friday:

    I also picked up the four Subkultur Entertainment releases, besides Stone Women which I missed out on the first time Mondo had it [which is hopefully on its way from Germany, as I ordered it overseas instead almost a month ago, and not lost in the mail!].

    I'm a sucker for limited titles so I went for it. Also pre-ordered Night Has a Thousand Desires.

    I will pick up this one on Amazon when it's out, I wait for retail on everything from MM, I don't need a number on my blu ray to make me feel special like I'm in 1st grade lol, I just want a blu ray so I can watch the movie. This one sounds like a good one too, never heard of it till MM dug it up out of obscurity. I'll probably wait for some reviews before definitely ordering it though, but from the description and the artwork it looks worth buying, yes I am easily fooled and buy movies based on artwork lol.
