    Coming soon on Blu-Ray, to be sold exclusively at Ronin's website, and diabolik for international, is Lucio Fulci’s cult classic “CONQUEST”. The film will feature a brand new HD scan from 2018, as well as a brand new on-camera interview with the star Jorge Rivero. Also featuring a brand new audio commentary from film historians Troy Howarth and Nathaniel Thompson. The disc will feature not only the original poster art for the cover, but also custom art done by Wes Benscoter and a slip sleeve with the custom art limited to the first 700 units. So keep an eye on this and Ronin’s site for more details!

    So is Conquest anywhere near as cool as its posters?

    Nah, it's kinda lame even for a Fulci film. There are certainly better films of that era with a similar genre/plot.

    It's bat shit crazy and makes no sense, but I find it pretty entertaining. Also has a killer score.

    Yeah Conquest is shitty, but in a good way. Some fun gore as well.

    And..... where back to $27 releases again. :mad:

    Then again you can buy it on Ebay for $45. There's actually some piece of trash selling them for that price right now.

    The featurette from the Shriek Show disc is out of sync on Code Red's new Just Before Dawn blu-ray.

    ...and there's also no trailer included for Just Before Dawn included on the new disc. It is listed on the back cover, but the only trailers on the disc are for other Code Red titles.

    It shouldn't be hard to check and get these things right before releasing... Just sad.

    Alright, well outside those issues how are the overall transfers of the two cuts? Worthy of an upgrade by earth shattering improvements?

    Nope. They are basically the same two transfers that were used on the 2013 release as far as I can tell.

    There are new interviews with three of the cast members. But considering they botched the terrific doc from the Shriek Show DVD, yeah, pretty much.

    Pretty much yeah, and the new Interviews like CPT said.

    It's hardly worth $27 though. The 88 Films Blu-ray from a couple of years back was actually far nicer in my opinion...and that actually included "two" JBD trailers on the disc too.
