The Pete Walker Collection Blu-ray Set (11/20/12)

http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/The-Pete-Walker-Collection-Blu-ray/53356/

It looks like this will be a Kino/Redemption 4-Disc set including:

House of Whipcord
Die Screaming Marianne
The Comeback
Schizo

No details on a retail price, coverart, features, etc.. yet.

house of whipcord is awesome, but i would have rather seen frightmare or the flesh and blood show included in the set over die screaming marianne - that was my least favorite title from the shriek show box set. don't know anything about the comeback or schizo though. i'm curious to know more...

I agree with your above points. House of Whipcord is my favorite Walker film, and I would have rather seen Frightmare or The Flesh and Blood Show in this set.

I never bought The Comeback or Schizo on DVD though, so I'll definitely pick this one up. Kino/Redemption have done a pretty solid job on their Blu-rays, so these should be at least an A/V improvement over the old SS DVD editions.

I already have Schizo and House of Whipcord on DVD. Never seen The Comback or Die Screaming Marianne so may still want the set.

Coming this November from Redemption Films / Kino Lorber: a four-pack of British nasties from the always-reliable Pete Walker! A nice assortment of thrillers ranging from gory early slashers to offbeat women in prison efforts, this collection should serve as a great introduction to the director's warped oeuvre.

Now up for preorder:

A little more expensive than I anticipated, but I went ahead and placed a pre-order. Hopefully there's some reviews prior to the release date.

Was planning on pre-ordering myself but I just can't plunk down $60+ on this when one of the movies in the 4 movie set is Die Screaming Marianne. If the price drops ~$20, I'll bite.

Mondo Digital review: http://www.mondo-digital.com/whipcord.html

THE COMEBACK comparison:
(Media Blasters/Anchor Bay UK master vs. new Redemption blu)



The price is still too high for my tastes; hopefully after release date some marketplace sellers will have it for $45-ish.

(I don't know how to make the images the same size.)

This set is currently priced at $39 at importcds.com; $40 listing minus 10% with SAVE10 promo code plus $3 shipping/handling. They've got killer prices on the redemption line if you want to combine for shipping costs (+$1.50 per item shipping).

Yeah, I have it on pre-order at ImportCDs also. I placed a larger order so shipping costs weren't much of an issue.

Grabbed the Blue Oyster Cult 17-disc Box Set for $57 too, which was also a hell of a buy...if they ever get it in stock.
