Fatal Frames has been released on Blu-Ray in Italy, in an English friendly release.

Besides including several (but not all) of the extras from the Synapse DVD (making of, deleted scenes, some of the music videos, ...), there's a new interview with Al Festa as well.

A limited edition was also available, with a postcard signed by Al Festa + the soundtrack, but sadly I missed it.



As a big "fan" of the film (it's a huge guilty pleasure of mine; check an earlier post I made about it above), I had to own this one in HD.  ::)

On a side note, I just noticed that today marks the 15th anniversary of my very first post on these forums, and it was a post about... Fatal Frames.  ;D
A lot has changed since then, but if anyone from the "old guard" happens to check this post, my regards to all:P

In case anyone is interested, the series has received its first Blu-Ray release in Italy, with English subtitles.
This first set has the first 4 episodes (seasons 1 and 2), which have been recently remastered in 4k.

I couldn't agree more with anything you say here. And I really appreciate that you tried for quite some time to get things going in this forum again after the "reboot". But community building is a very tough job and I think a lot of things must fall into place for it to work. I am grateful that this place is at least still up and available as an archive and a great web resource for information on Eurocult films. Whenever I stop by I notice dozens of guests browsing the forum and I suppose they can't be all bots or crawlers.

Thanks for the kind words.  :P

Yeah, I keep posting stuff whenever I have some time, because I know some people end up here through search engines (when searching for certain films and directors, it's curious how frequently these forums still pop-up as one of the first, if not the first, result), while in other cases I post about new BD releases, so that former members may (hopefully) receive a reply notification, and become aware certain hard to find titles are now available on BD.  ;D

That's why it's a bit sad this place isn't as active as it once was.
There's currently not a lot of places to discuss Euro cult cinema, despite being easier than ever to watch a lot of these films (I mean, you have places discussing certain Blu-Ray releases, but they are more interested in discussing the packaging or slipcovers, and not really the actual work), and social media isn't really a good place to store and find information, nor to share media and info on films, cast and crew.

So many other forums have died since social media more or less monopolised the internet. 1-2 years ago the dirtypictures forum (kind of the German equivalent to LLL) had to start all over again after losing the whole content of more than 10 years. Incredibly, it's the 2nd time it happened to them. Not sure if this is the death knell for them sooner or later, now that their user base has been decimated and forums in general seem to have less and less appeal.

I read about this a while back.
Sad news.  :o

Some of the people who featured in the films we love to watch, especially lesser known "character actors" and "bit players", remain unaware that decades later, there are still people enjoying their work.

That's why it's a bit sad this place isn't as active as it once was.

What a shame that there is no Blu Ray release of one of the best Polizios ever made. There's not even a good DVD release with any English options. At this point it seems like a Blu Ray will never happen.

Never say never.  :D
2022 has actually been a rather awesome year so far for poliziotteschi BD releases, especially in the UK (Revolver, Violent City, ...), and more labels than ever are releasing titles in the genre (Eureka, Arrow, 88 Films, Studio Canal, ...), so I'll keep hoping.

I wish some of these labels tackled unavailable titles, instead of heavily re-releasing a handful of well known titles over and over.

There are some mysteries in the world of Eurocult that for whatever reason never seem to let go of me. Even after all these years I once in a while looked for information on the elusive actor Mark Gregory (Marco di Gregorio) who played the title character Trash in the BRONX movies. Also here on LLL, in the Golden Years of the forum, we had discussions on him as I remember. While cult favourite Peter Bark has reappeared since, there were alleged sightings of Marco in Rome and lots of theories about what happened after he had left cinema behind him. Enzo didn't know, nor did other companions from his years in the movie business. The Bronx Warriors website owner even did a short youtube series "Hunt for Trash", trying his best to find him, but without success.

It is not the most recent news, but I just learned today that Marco de Gregorio, as his actual name was, already died tragically back in 2013. The guys from the cinemaitalianodatabase website confirm this in their March '22 article and even located his grave:
https://cinemaitalianodatabase-com.translate.goog/2022/03/04/in-memoria-di-mark-gregory/?_x_tr_sl=auto&_x_tr_tl=en&_x_tr_hl=de&_x_tr_pto=wapp

I was saddened to learn that life didn't go that great for the gentle giant in his later years. Did he ever know how passionate many of us fans were about his films and his performance in them, even if he himself didn't seem to care much about his career in the movies? I just hope that at one point, maybe through a chance encounter or just by browsing the internet, Marco realised that he was remembered and not forgotten at all and that his films were still being watched all over the world. Rest in peace, Bronx Warrior!
