BEYOND THE DARKNESS is coming on 7/25/17
The Necro Bundle
Available on 07/25/2017
Really wasn't planning on buying this movie again but that's a nice bundle, so maybe I'll buy it again after all...
Coming soon from Severin according to an image in a distributor catalog:
Dracula vs. Frankenstein is the Al Adamson film. Merchants of Sex is the more direct translation of Jess Franco's Two Female Spies with Flowered Panties (Ópalo de fuego: Mercaderes del sexo) and is rumoured to include both the Spanish and French versions. The Otherworld is the 2013 Richard Stanley film.
Also, they have a couple Amicus titles coming to Blu-ray including Asylum, And Now the Screaming Starts, The Beast Must Die, and Jack the Ripper (1959). So it is NOT Jess Franco's Jack the Ripper as was thought previously that they are releasing, but the Amicus production.
I am looking forward to Asylum, And Now the Screaming Starts, The Beast Must Die, Dracula VS Frankenstein. Merchants of Sex, & Young Warriors. Must be further down the road, but Severin is also releasing The Devil's Rain. I did confirm that with Severin at a horror convention in May of this year.
Severin actually shared something interesting on Facebook regarding The Devil's Rain today:
That's strange that they've got Dracula vs. Frankenstein on their list, seeing how it already got a release just a few months ago.
Media Blasters originally announced their Blu-ray for a 2012 release. All that became of that at the time was a DVD release. The Blu-ray eventually did get a 2016 release from Media Blasters, but it could be possible that their license is expiring? My thought is that the Severin release will be much better.
They also re-issued Burial Ground and Zombie Holocaust, both of which were also originally on Blu-ray from Media Blasters so not really strange at all since they've done it twice already. But Severin's releases easily outdo those other editions so their new release of Dracula vs. Frankenstein is most welcome.
Beyond the Darkness Blu-ray review, with screen comparisons to the 88 Films release: http://www.mondo-digital.com/buio.html
Another review: http://www.dvddrive-in.com/reviews/a-d/beyondthedarknessblu79.htm
I'm not all that surprised it's getting a second release on Blu-ray, more so that it is coming hot on the heels of the Media Blasters release. I watched the Media Blasters disc when I received it back in December and that should tide me over for quite a few years. No way I'm gonna triple-dip on that one, seeing how I already had owned the DVD as well. It's unfortunate because I'm sure the Severin release will be superior.

the image quality on the Severin release is much better, but I'm not planning on triple-dipping, so the 88 Films release will have to do of Beyond The Darkness
but maybe in the future, i have to hold out a bit before buying 88 Films releases...
