    Does anyone know if this, or any other of Riccardo Freda's films will be getting DVD treatment? Not seen "Murder Obsession" myself but it sounds kind of like "Bay of Blood" and I hear it is very gory and stylish to boot.

    (Riccardo Freda did direct Murder Obsession didn't he? I suddenly had a flash that I may be wrong and can't be bothered to go check...)

    He directed it. I've never seen this one, but would definitely be interested in buying it if it was released on dvd.

    Righto,check this out:

    If the release is decent I'll buy it but I read that the AR could actually be 1.33:1 in stead of widescreen.
    Anyone know for sure?Of course I could mail Tony about it.

    Years went by.... Anyone bought the Raro USA release? Apparently some companies are already shipping?

    The axe and chainsaw kills are 'dark moment' kills. I think this and Trhauma are pretty underrated and undermentioned early 80s slasher flicks.

    It's still on my wishlist and the US DVD is pretty cheap (compared to RARO US' other releases)
    I think I'll include next time.

    Sounds good. I really can't remember ever having seen this one before, but it showed up in my Amazon goldbox for right over $10 a while back...so I went ahead and pre-ordered it on the blind.

    I was thinking about getting the dvd, but then I saw that it's scheduled for a blu-ray release in April. Guess I can hold out a little longer. :glasses:

    Yes, that's what I paid in a pre-order. It shipped yesterday.
