...anyone know if DVD or lasers are/will be available anytime soon.

Rabid Dogs (Bava. I've heard there is a region O rumored, but not sure)

The Baby of Macon (Greenaway. Banned mostly everywhere)

Death Weekend (Canadian from the '70's compared to Last House on the left...)

Any info appreciated!

Bava's Rabid Dogs was available quite some time ago. It's out of print now, but you may be able to find a copy on ebay for 30-40 bucks. That's close to what I paid for mine in the store, so it's not too much of a price hike. I haven't heard anything about the other two flicks that you mentioned.

Indie, DEATH WEEKEND is not on DVD or LD, MGM owns that title. I do have the uncut copy on VHS.

I've never seen The Baby of Macon but it was screened on Channel 4 in the UK as part of a Greenaway season about a year ago. I didn't know this film was banned in various countries but I know it raised controversy when it was released (but then that's Greenaway for you). Did the film receive a US release? In the UK it was an arthouse movie but I don't think it performed well at even this "limited" box office, unlike The Cook, The Thief...

Baby of Macon is Greenaway's best film in my humble opinion. A true masterpiece!
