    That's cool that they want to branch out. Not sure "Severin" is a good starting name for a children's line. People look into Severin would find Gwendoline for example...

    I don't get the impression it's intended to be a "legit" children's line. When the Wind Blows has an animation style that is reminiscent of a children's film, but that's certainly not the intended audience.

    Yes, you're probably right. When I saw they made their own website I bit on it.

    Not to waste a post, has Severin even hinted at a Black Friday exclusive title? There's a couple of things I want from a BF sale but I don't know if I can get to that $80 free S&H requirement this year since I picked up a bunch to get Viy for their Memorial Day sale.

    Yeah, apparently there will be several.

    From the Severin Films & Intervision Picture Corp. Fan Group on Facebook:

    I haven't seen any public confirmation from Severin representative, but from the same group, yesterday:

    aka The Revenge of the Living Dead Girls.

    I recently bought the Eaten Alive! blu ray with the CD soundtrack. Aside from the title track, which is track number one, the rest of the music seems to be completely unrelated to the film. Has anybody else listened to this? Anybody have any idea what the rest of the music is? Does it have any relationship to the movie at all?

    Yeah, that's the only track recorded specifically for Eaten Alive! as an original tune. The rest of the soundtrack (like the movie itself) is a mish-mash of songs from Donati's other scores for Cannibal Ferox, etc. and some re-recorded material. Some further info from Discogs from a user post: "These tracks have been recorded in recent years by Roberto Donati in homage to his original score for the film. I understand the licensor (Flipper music) required their inclusion on the release."

    Thanks for that info! It might have been a good idea for Severing to indicate this somewhere in the package, but it's great to have nonetheless.

    I think it's cool they're starting a kids label. Weird move, but pretty cool. There's a lot of rare and obscure kids titles that are dying to see new and better editions.

    Already put in requests for Dunderklumpen and the Asterix films.

    Standard release already available at Diabolik. Thought about grabbing a copy but I'm still not sold on the idea of a 60's Russian fantasy flick :p

    Officially announced on Twitter:
    https://twitter.com/SeverinFilms/status/1197898367935885313

    And now Viy is up on Severin-Film.com: https://severin-films.com/shop/viy-blu/ and T-Shirt bundle: https://severin-films.com/shop/viy-blu/

    It's up on Shudder if you can check it out there.

    Much like Hausu words fail to describe it. It's rather bizarre and it's a wonder the Soviets produced such a eccentric film because while it is subversive of religion/superstition it pretty much subverts everything else. It's hard to imagine propaganda party members approving such a mindfuck to screen in government run theaters throughout the union. Also like Hausu it's Evil Dead-ish sharing a somewhat similar look, feel and plot. But in this case I suspect it's coincidental.

    They forgot to include the disc replacement details for the new releases. ;)
