    Preorders are up at D&T Mailorder. It looks like this will be a region-free release with both 89 and 92 minute versions, German and English audio and subtitles.

    Extras:

    * 16-page booklet with text by Lars Dreyer-Winkelmann
    * Audio commentary by Marco Erdmann from Wicked Vision Magazine
    * Original trailer
    * DVD version

    Will all the covers be available on Amazon? I can only find cover A.

    Would prefer C (the VHS artwork) or F (the theatrcial poster).

    Has this movie been released on Blu-ray anywhere under a different title? I don't want to double dip on it unnecessarily if I already own it. Savage Weekend perhaps?

    No, this is the first Blu-ray release for Death Weekend (1976) (aka The House by the Lake). Only other disc release of the film I know of was a Swedish DVD from 2017, otherwise this one hasn't been available in most of the world since the VHS days. Savage Weekend (1979) is a completely different film.

    Any news on this?

    I no longer see it on Amazon.de, nor is it listed on Diabolik or any sites that carry imports.

    The release date was next week.

    No clue. I had it in my shopping cart on Amazon.de and it literally just disappeared weeks back. Not "unavailable" or anything, it simply disappeared.

    D&T still list it though: https://shop.dtm.at/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=death+weekend&x=0&y=0

    Amazon cancelled my order weeks ago. I assume the release was cancelled.

    Diabolik currently has a few of the different covers in stock for $39.99 a pop.

    I think they typically do more affordable standard editions down the line. At least I'm hoping that's the case here.

    Death Weekend is back up for sale on Diabolik but only a couple different covers this time around in case anyone missed it. I went with cover F ;)
