Title: Nucleus Films (UK)
Post by: the blob on 08 Jun 2015 - 23:47
Seeing as Marc hasn't mentioned anything here, I'm looking forward to checking this out soon. 28TH June according to the site.

(http://www.nucleusfilms.com/images/source/NN0013-MockUp-72.jpg)

Shot in the sleepy suburban Orpington, the story concerns two less-than-professional criminals, Ron (Derren Nesbitt - The Man In The Back Seat, Strongroom, Burke And Hare, Where Eagles Dare, Special Branch) and The Boy (Alan Guy) who hold a family prisoner in their home whilst their colleagues simultaneously raid a local bank managed by the father (James Kerry- Killer's Moon, Raven, Out Of The Unknown, Blakes Seven, Triangle). Of course, being a British crime film, something has to go wrong, and with one teller (Gene Foad- Dickens Of London) dead, and the aforementioned accomplices having "done one" with the loot, our hapless duo soon find themselves in a lose-lose situation with half the Bromley constabulary in attendance...

Tense and claustrophobic but with a setting straight out of a TV sitcom, GIVE US TOMORROW was originally withheld for legal reasons (see booklet) from proper distribution or theatrical release. Original VHS releases are extremely scarce: therefore, the arrival of this long-awaited, remastered and uncut disc is cause for celebration among cult collectors everywhere.



ALSO.... this in August!

1.66:1 no less. I actually ended up moving on my hardbox not long ago because of that 'Not for sale in blah blah' watermark so I'll be having one of these.  ::)

Looking good. If you raise extra a little HD master for Craze wouldn't go amiss here...  :-\

If we knew where the negatives were it would be worthwhile.

I tried to contribute but my card has been rejected.  :-[

I pledged two times in the past with the different card issued by the same bank so I don't understand what is the problem.

... can you add an option to pledge on one film or the other?

for me, both together makes me think it's the label before the interest in the films.

i am happy to pay up for 'death laid an egg'. £12.50?!

Too late now for that option to be introduced I'd bet.
It will be available for individual sale next year as long as goal 2 is reached.

Why not pledge for the two releases and sell the one you don't want. Limited edition so you should easily be able to sell one to cover the costs...

Maybe you should add a pledge to buy them by the dozen?

One more pledge and we'll be at 17K!

Then only 3K to our next target!

Looks certain that anybody ordering will be geting both Blu-rays discs...

Goal three almost within grasp and a new announcement from Marc today

Death Laid an Egg - Exciting news!

After much searching we have located the original negatives - and what appears to be an archive 35mm print containing additional, unseen footage never before released on home video! Exact running time is to be confirmed as we're awaiting a technical report, but we are confident we will be releasing the most complete version of DEATH LAID AN EGG ever seen.

Marc must have spent more than a few hours on DEMONS....
makes it a must have for my Franco shelf.

From Stephen Thrower's FB:

THE EROTIC RITES OF FRANKENSTEIN and THE DEMONS:
two peak period Jess Franco movies that no serious fan should be without,
now available from Nucleus Films (http://nucleusfilms.com/ (http://nucleusfilms.com/)) and featuring on camera interviews with yours truly!
I'd also say that these two films are well worth buying if you're curious about Franco but uncertain about where to start.
Some will counsel caution and recommend the slightly more sober and conventional 1960s titles, but to hell with all that.
Why not throw caution to the wind and grab these two - they'll give you a fantastic insight into his freewheeling style in the 1970s.

Nucleus majordomo Marc Morris has done a huge amount of extraordinary work restoring THE DEMONS in particular.
Here's a list of some of the work he's done which viewers and reviewers may not otherwise be aware of:

1. Incorrect aspect ratios on numerous shots fixed throughout.
2. White line frames removed throughout.
3. The soundtrack was out of synch throughout (sometimes by as much as 6 seconds). Marc has fixed this.
4. The soundtrack was missing audio, and in these scenes had been badly looped. Marc has located audio from alternate sources and replaced the annoying looped audio with correct audio where possible.
5. There was some German dialogue on the French soundtrack, which Marc has replaced with the correct French dialogue.
7. There were numerous instances of actors speaking with no dialogue heard on the soundtrack - now fixed.
8. There were numerous instances of dialogue spoken, with the actors' mouths not moving - now fixed.
9. The dissolve from face freeze frame to skull was completely missing - Marc has added this back.
10. He has also created from scratch an English language master, which is believed to match the original English language export version.
11. German Trailer - On the Kino Blu-ray, this was incorrectly dubbed with random French audio from the movie. This has been replaced with the original German soundtrack.
12. Marc has also corrected the frame rates from 23.976 fps to 24 fps, so if you have exquisitely perfect musical pitch the soundtrack will now match your LP record of Jean-Michel Lorgère's Trafic Pop!

And finally, look out for the startling fx shot included in the French trailer for Erotic Rites of Frankenstein which as far as I can recall doesn't appear in any currently available version of the film. Face-ripping!
