I've been slowly chiseling away at a blog which is essentially a scrapbook of notes and articles (mostly translated) about vintage Italian cinema. The focus is very much on the obscure and also a way to document the films I've subtitled over the last 10 years. There's also a heavy emphasis on films that seem to have disappeared.

Maybe there's something you might find interesting. Updates are very (very) random and any feedback is appreciated.

Here's ze' link:

I think the guys that publish MONSTER (the Tim Paxton fanzine) have a series of peplum books on the way from another writer, apparently a long while off but looking very comprehensive. Dunno when they'll be out.

Awesome. Thanks for compiling this.

There is an astonishing amount of euro-genre content on Prime — horror, westerns, spy films, the lot. Presentation varies, though, lots of ropey prints and wrong aspect ratios!

There seems to be a wealth of Euro Crime films that have turned up on Amazon UK. Not sure whether they are all uncut or not so someone might be able to clarify. I've not had a chance to view any yet so not sure how good the quality is. These are the ones I have spotted so far:

Blood and Diamonds (1977):

Meet him and Die (1976):

Kidnap Syndicate (1975):

Fearless Fuzz (1978):

Play Cop (Anyone know what this one is?) :

From Corleone to Brooklyn (1979):

Shadows Unseen (1972):

Killer Cop (1975):

Shoot First, Die Later (1974):

Hired Gun (Go Gorilla Go - 1975):

Execution Squad (1972):

Day of the Owl (1968):

They Paid With Bullets Chicago 1929 (1969):

The New Godfathers (1979):

Hold Up (1974):

Terrorism It Could Happen Here (1977):

Silent Action (1975):

Looking forward to watching some of these as there are a few I've never seen.

There are a few that have been on Amazon for a while namely Violent Naples, The Cynic the Rat and the Fist and Manhunt in the City. If anyone notices any I've missed then add them to the list.

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:

two peak period Jess Franco movies that no serious fan should be without,
now available from Nucleus Films (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!
