    Hrm... It's possible the artist, working from production photos, had not seen the film (at least not recently) or had perhaps assumed the staging for the photo to simply be artistic license by the advertisers of the time (not uncommon) and liked it enough for inclusion; unaware of the implication.

    Hopefully it's included! Films with production histories like these you never know what you might pull out of the vaults.

    Sorry to hear that, that's devastating. Good to hear that you're well though and things are returning to normal for you.

    So question

    The Euro releases of Demons and Erotic Rites of Frankenstein both have alternate cuts of the films that the corresponding US releases don't have - right?

    Me! The completist in me like having the different cuts.

    Frustrating that Demons can be only ordered with a UK prime acct. from AmazonUK. I'm prime in the US but it doesn't apply. I don't see where else to get it.

    I ordered this and I don't have a UK Prime account. It already arrived too.

    It's definitely a Prime exclusive at the moment. I'm sure that won't be permanent, but I'm equally sure the £9.99 pricetag won't be permanent, either.

    Guess I got lucky because I ordered the title at that price on October 31st without being a UK Prime member. I already have the U.S. Redemption blu but besides the "export" cut there are also exclusive extras on the Nucleus release.

    Full Moon just announced their first Franco Blu-ray release from their collection:
    http://www.fullmoondirect.com/Jess-Francos-Barbed-Wire-Dolls-Blu-ray_p_1226.html

    I don't know why I'm genuinely surprised by this announcement. I had it in my head they only had quickie DVD rights. I almost bought the full DVD boxset on a lark during their Cyber Monday sale as it was nearly 50% off. Now that price tag makes more sense. Dump that inventory for the incoming HD line.

    The Full Moon release only has the horrible English dub. So for anyone still needing to grab Barb Wire Dolls in HD, get the region-free Ascot Elite release instead since it has German, English, and Japanese audio options plus subs. Plus it'll be the same transfer since they licensed it from Ascot (but probably likely at worse compression seeing as it's Full Moon).

    I will wait for a review of barbed wire dolls. If they do a good release I will buy it. But I am confident they will edit the movie or release it in a defective blu ray thAt won't play or they will somehow fuck it up but seriously I think they will edit the movie cause it's full moon.

    It'll be identical to the DVD in every way except in 1080p. So any review of that DVD will tell you all you need to know about edits. But I can already tell you that they will be English dub only.

    This image, posted on Severin Film's Facebook page, confirms they will be releasing Jess Franco's 1979 semi-remake (and one of his personal favourites) of his 1975 film Exorcism - THE SADIST OF NOTRE DAME! While this does feature footage from the Spanish-language version of Exorcism, as well as footage from the XXX cut Sexorcimes, this is a completely different film with all-new footage and plot.

    The U.K. Demons Blu is 9.99 right now and you don't need prime to order.

    Media Target Distribution released it on DVD about 5 years ago in Germany with the same cover that Redemption used:

    I am seriously interested in the severin release of the sadist of Notre dame. I will be buying that one. Severin are bringing on the franco in recent years I hope they can do more. I loved exorcism and I actually like alternate versions of franco films they keep me on my toes haha
