    I'll pick up Cannibals, the rest are just rereleases of AB titles that I already have.

    What the hell they done to the Cannibal Man cover? Aside from that it's reissue hell.

    ^As Rockmjd pointed out, Jesus Franco's "Cannibals" will a first time release. I'll probably be picking that up.

    Or they only have the rights for a short period of time.Only for this rerelease and then finito.
    Which could mean there's another company planning a release too :D:D
    It happens with those German X Rated/NK etc. releases.That's why they're almost always limited to 666 or so pieces.

    Well the 666 and 22 limited releases from X-Rated are usually just alternate covers, the standard release isn't so limited.

    Could well be a rights issue because there's also a R2 rerelease planned for September:
    I'm pretty sure they just used the EC DVD as source,which was slightly better than the AB release.
    AB's release isn't/wasn't that great as you can see here .

    I suppose that's true.But still I read somewhere that these companies only have the rights for a very limited time.

    Yes it's very true these are limited distribution agreements, sometimes even limited to number of pressings. I think a lot of Alternative Cinema's back catalog is based on counts, as many of their early releases said "Limited 50,000" when realistically that was the most they'd probably sell anyways. They've since stopped saying that as "Limited." I'm just clarifying that your specific example didn't seem accurate to me.

    I will be picking up Franco's Cannibals, Stagefright, Mountain of the Cannibal God, and Manhattan Baby. The last three are reissues, but I never bought the original Anchor Bay releases.

    Cannibals sounds like a wild film even by Jess Franco standards. Another one I've never seen is Mountain of the Cannibal God. Sergio Martino is one of my favorite directors plus the casting of Ursula Andress and Stacy Keach has me very interested!

    Lose the animal cruelty and Mountain Of The Cannibal God could be mistaken for a more high profile adventure movie. Alas, the scene with the monkey and the snake is quite disturbing. Wonder what Stacy Keach would say about this now when you would ask him...

    Depending on how much Stage Fright will be, I might get that. That one needs an interview.
