Awhile ago, we told you that Mondo Macabro were prepping a Blu-ray release of the film PRIVATE VICES, PUBLIC VIRTUES, the controversial 1975 feature by filmmaker by Miklos Jancso. You can read about the background on the film HERE. Now the details of the upcoming release are here. PRIVATE VICES, PUBLIC VIRTUES will be available to buy as a limited edition Blu-ray (“one thousand numbered pieces”) on August 22nd, with pre-orders beginning on July 29th. A retail edition Blu-ray is slated for October.
Originally released on DVD in the States by Anchor Bay and out of print for nearly a decade, Richard Franklin’s ROAD GAMES (1981) is given new life on disc thanks to Australian outfit Umbrella Entertainment. While you will still need to pay for some extra shipping to import the disc, according to Umbrella’s website this release is region free. I own their previous release of RAZORBACK and that indeed plays fine on region A players, so you should feel safe ordering this edition if you’re in the U.S.
Just because you’re paranoid, it doesn’t mean that they really aren’t out to get you. Right? The country is filled with people that harbor conspiracy theories and sightings of alien life forms. Are they coming from a basis of truth or are they just off their rocker? As someone that is quite the skeptic, I lean a little more towards the latter opinion. That still doesn’t shut down the fact that I would be ecstatic if we truly have been in contact with extraterrestrial life. But, what if they are right? MAN UNDERGROUND poses that question for us in it’s Fantasia Film Fest premiere.
“Out of the cradle, into the cage” is scratched into a desk and an early image in LET ME MAKE YOU A MARTYR (written and directed by Corey Asraf, John Swab), and it is a strong theme that carries us throughout this Southern Gothic Noir that just premiered at Fantasia International Film Festival. We get to see just what happens when two grown orphans raised by a criminal want to save a little girl when they don’t even know how to save themselves.
