I seem to remember reading that they released THE NIGHT HAIR CHILD too but I've never come across this disc. Does anyone know any more??

Maybe they anounced it and it was cancelled, Johan? I would certainly have bought it, if it had been released. There's a Jef Films or Televista grey market release. Came out last year.

As far as I know, they still have plans to release WHAT THE PEEPER SAW aka THE NIGHT HAIR CHILD. I sent them an e-mail a while ago and they answered that they were looking for some scenes which were cut on their VHS release.

Yeah, that must be the case. It's a shame, though, as I'd love to see a proper release of this film. Sounds very interesting...

I’LL SEE YOU IN HELL

(Ti aspetterò all'inferno)


Walter and Al are not only jewel thieves and killers, they're also good at math! While hiding in a swamp from authorities, they conclude that a two-way split beats a three-way as they watch their partner-in-crime, Sam, disappear into quicksand. But is he really dead? In a remote farmhouse they hide out, strange things begin to indicate that Sam may have escaped oozing death...or is he diabolically haunting them from beyond?

PASSPORT FOR A CORPSE

(Lasciapassare per il morto)

But his luck remains par for the corpse! Now he must struggle to survive, first in the coffin and next in a frigid morgue! Passport for a Corpse morbidly mixes crime thriller, noir, horror and even fantasy, with a mystical Laughing Woman (representing Destiny) materializing everywhere the desperate Marco's misfortunes take him.

There are run-ins with military patrols, a trip on a merchant ship--and romance--until the deserters find themselves in the country they fear more than any other--France!

These are all full screen US tv prints from the Kit Parker collection (& several titles are trimmed down ) but can be had cheap, and even cheaper ( under $10 before shipping ) thru 04/07 as VCI are having an Easter sale.

Three great little thrillers, the weakest (imho) is Death on the Fourposter - none of which I'd call 'trash'.

For those in the U.K. it's cheaper to get the ones on eBay (or wait till amazon have got them), I did initially go to the VCI site as they sent me a n email saying the sale was on but with the shipping costs it's still cheaper to get from elsewhere.

VCI are prepping 3 Blu's from their back horror titles.  To date they still seem to be intent on using the MPEG-2 codec which produces crap compression. :(  Films are CITY OF THE DEAD, RUBY & CHILDREN SHOULDN'T PLAY WITH DEAD THINGS.
