I agree Tanzi, there doesn't look to be a clear front-runner between the Blu-ray and DVD

No need to apologise, if some of their stuff isn't right and the BU ones are ok there's no comparison is there.

Actually, I'm gonna sell my inferior Arrow editions of stuff where there is a superior BU release.

I'm the same. I've found that as soon as I think it's a good idea to lie down and watch the rest of the film with my head on a cushion I wake up four hours later with the DVD menu looping on the telly.

Sorry to interupt the discussion on Jonny's drinking and falling asleep. I've lost count of how many times I've woken upto looping menus. What's with Blue Underground releasing triple packs? Has the well of Euro cinema run dry or have they no plans to release anything 'new' onto the market? It seems like an age since the put a new title out and not a Blu Ray upgrade.

Blue Underground have really gone to seed in the last few years, it's just constant re-releases of their back catalogue. Severin also seem to have given up the ghost. Are the Italian rights holders asking too for much money and that's putting the likes of BU and Severin off?

Haha! Just falling asleep! Honest.

It could well be the money thing, I know Marc enquired about the rights to The Devil's Wedding Night a while back and was given a silly quote from the Italian rights holder but the guys at Nocturno are putting it out/have put it out in Italy and I doubt they will have paid the fee Marc was quoted. Maybe they want more money for the English speaking territories? Which is putting everyone off?

How old are you?

44 going on 80...

These triple packs just sound like a decent way to dump old DVD stock that isn't selling as well anymore probably. With the rate they're churning out their catalogue on BD I wouldn't be surprised if their DVD sales have dropped a fair bit. There's a handful of titles that I never picked up and wouldn't dream of buying on DVD now because I'm half expecting them to re-release their whole catalogue eventually. Maybe as a stop gap if they're used and cheap.

Weren't there rumours about them being on the edge a few years ago? It'd be nice to have some new titles but they're hopefully enjoying a new lease of life with BD so maybe more will come eventually if their sales can match the investment needed. At least they can be first with most of what they're re-releasing now. A load of their catalogue on DVD I already had from Anchor Bay or whoever.

Time to find something to fall asleep to again. I'm not going to risk Django Kill tonight as I'm knackered and I don't want to have to watch that first half hour three times...

Post by: Paul on 26 Apr 2012 - 22:29
I think a lot of the companies took a bit of a bath on the deep back catalogue (how many copies of these lesser-known titles sold?) and the big, known tilted are already out. We had more than ten years of great surprises but I think those days are over, even companies like BU are playing things safe with reselling (bundles or Blu-ray) titles that have sold well previously.

Still, companies such as FilmArt and CameraObscura are still uncovering previously unreleased gems, so it ain't all bad.

I just noticed this new release on their website, supposed to be released 23 April:

([url]http://www.blue-underground.com/boxcovers/BLU-DV-3012_l.jpg[/url])

Good selection of films, tacky name for the box set though, do they think all the birds who read them books will buy it or something?

That made me laugh.  :-\ I also think the front cover sucks, by the way.

RATS: NIGHT OF TERROR is coming too.

My phone predicted that as RATS: NIGHT OF TREORCHY which I'd pay good money to see.

We're anxiously awaiting the delivery of 4 new HD masters from Italy next week! We already teased 3 of the titles we'll be upgrading to Blu-ray on here a few months back. Any guesses on the 4th title? Here's a hint: it's an Italian horror movie currently out on DVD from Blue Underground...

Well we know Rats/Hell of the living dead are coming. Maybe Contamination ( please !) will be one of the other ones. It will be one of the bigger films though, can't see them releasing an obscurity on blu

Living Dead and Rats we know about, did we even know a third film had been teased? All the Argento titles BU have the rights too have already been released haven't they? Could be Contamination or how about Conquest?

Companeros has already been confirmed by BU so that could be one if the four HD masters received from Italy.

Lamberto Bava's MACABRE?

I think it's a little sad that BU seem to have stopped releasing new stuff alltogether. Of course I'd rather see these HD upgrades than nothing at all, but still. Wake me up when they announce High Crime for BD please.
Title: Re: Blue-Underground (USA)
Post by: JAMIOUSE on 10 Jan 2014 - 19:10
I think BU are putting their catalogue titles out on Blu because they already own the rights to them. I think that's why so many studios are 'playing it safe' by not buying new titles, plus there are only so many titles that can be bought or have known masters. It would be nice to see other undiscovered films get a release but often their rights are too expensive or the labs have no idea where the films actually are.

Maybe once the economy picks up BU and others will start putting out lesser known titles again. Theres still a load of gialli to see the light of day or to be re-released by another studio, there was all the NoShame titles that must have expired rights.

I agree. I really wish they would either release something new, or at least upgrade something which doesn't have as high a profile on legit DVD, sort of what they did with The Grand Duel. It was nice to have a solid release of public domain butcher shop title.

I saw on another forum that the mystery title is Michele Soavi's Stagefright.

That's interesting, wasn't a small British label looking to release Stagefright on Blu last year? But it was been held up the lack of a HD master?

Yes, Exposure Cinema. Someone has posted this on blu-ray.com forums:

"I got a message a few days ago regarding this release;

Thank you for your email and interest.

I’m pleased to say that we’re putting the finishing touches to the release with a view to making it available very soon.

Here’s a shot from our new interview with Barbara Cupisti (Alicia) to keep you going until then!

With both films on one disc isn't that going to possibly compromise the transfers?

I really wish more labels would take the chances Camera Obscura, Grindhouse and, to an extent, Raro are taking and release films new to DVD/BD, rather than simply re-releasing their back catalog on Blu-Ray. Just speaking for me personally, but I've never been one to spend the $$ simply for an AV upgrade to a film I enjoy just fine on DVD or even VHS. (Synapse's Demons, for example).

I mean, it's cool and all, but I'm still totally fine owning my OG BU DVDs of Rats, Hell of the Living Dead, Companeros, etc...I don't feel that I really need them on Blu. I'd much rather have something new, something formerly OOP or something formerly cut on home video.

I feel the same way. Basically I only buy BDs of titles I don't already have.

I'm typically slow to upgrade films I have bought several times already and may possibly be burnt out on (like waiting til I came across BU's 2-disc ZOMBIE blu used in a shop, though I pounced once I found it!), but in the case of ESCAPE FROME THE BRONX and COMPANEROS I've waited sooooooo long (never purchased either on DVD, meant to, but never got around to it) that it will actually work in my favor! Only got the Mattei flicks fairly recently (and for dirt cheap at that), so that won't sting too much either. Any hopes of a VIOLENT CITY blu?

Review here from DVD DRIVE-IN.  Seems the transfers are quite noisy as per a lot of Italian titles.

Great news! Anyway, I really miss some new Giallo stuff on HD: "La tarantola dal ventre nero", "La morte negli occhi del gatto", "Solamente nero" (which hasn't really got a very good treatment on both Blu releases), etc.
