    I suspect the reviewers do not have the ability to take screen shots off of blu-rays, i.e. no bd drive on their computer. I have noticed when a release is a bd/dvd combo, they include screen shots (from the DVD apparently).

    From Le Chat Qui Fume's FB



    "You are much to ask for the release date of our 2 JESUS FRANCO: the possédées of the devil and the diary of a nymphomane. They're coming, but we still need a little time. The Diary of a nymphomane is almost over, but we are still working on the devil's possessed. As we explained, the master hd is the assembly of 2 different films, one of which is in a bad condition and what was not seen in DVD is in HD.
    We started the restoration but we try to always improve our version whichtakes a lot of time. After having passed the damaged sequences in programs, you have to go by plan and do manual retouching.
    Here is a small video example of restoration... and it concerns simple alterations to be made with a restoration program.
    As soon as our Michele Soavi are on their way to press, next week we will be 100 % off on the Franco and we think they will be released at the end of June, mid July.
    In any case, we have learned a great lesson. Never sign a movie without seeing the master before!!!"

    While both those MVD Classic Franco titles are far from good Franco (they do still have their 'charms') none-the-less as a Franco completest I will be upgrading!

    Thanks for the link f.ramses. The combo pack does include a 60 page booklet but I couldn't tell if these were English friendly. Unfortunately for me if they aren't that is just too much money to spend.

    My guess is that the booklet is not English friendly but the BDs definitely should be, it doesn't say on the page for the combo pack but on the pages for the individual releases it says they both have English & French audio with English subs. I actually didn't even think about English options when I ordered and was very relieved to see that shortly after!

    This came out to $55.00 shipped to the U.S. The price isn't bad especially considering the 60 page book. Even if it's only in French I'm sure there will be lots of nice photos.

    Lorna the Exorcist and Sinner: The Secret Diary of a Nymphomaniac showed up today as well but, unfortunately, Lorna the Exorcist seems to be defective as it takes forever to initialize/load on whatever I try it on and once it finally does it doesn't seem to be able to be read past maybe 35 or 40 minutes into the movie, the DVD seems fine though. I hope the exchange process isn't a pain... On the plus side these caps seem to have come out nicely so maybe my HTPC is fine...

    The booklet is pretty nice, almost no text and lots of nice photos and advertising materials; glad I got the package, assuming I can get my Lorna BD exchanged.

    Shortly after I posted that I noticed a weird indentation on the data side of the disc. It wasn't loose in the case when it arrived and the cases were in perfect condition so I'm not sure what happened but I like to think that if it wasn't a one-off issue we would have heard about it before now.

    Unfortunate for you, but maybe good news? At least the company seems like they really care from their FB posts. I imagine they’ll do right by you.

    Finally, we've got an expected shipping date for Dorado Films Blu-ray release of Jess Franco's Forgotten Films Vol.2 (which I've had on pre-order from seemingly forever ago) - October 2nd, 2018.

    Originally posted from Dorado Films Facebook page:
    "Wow already Friday evening for us and Saturday for some of you!

    We have been reviewing files, artwork, printed materials, proofing the final items that all that makes up these releases so we can post an actual shipping expectation for the Jess Franco's Forgotten Films Vol. 2 and Seven From Texas Bluray releases. We posted that we would provide you with a shipping date for both these releases, and to be on the safe side of error, should the powers to be decide to throw any more causes or reasons for delays... we are extending out to the very latest the dates of shipping. Our honest expectations are to have these going out sooner but this would be the very latest.

    Jess Franco Forgotten Films Vol. 2 10/2/2018
    Seven From Texas 9/27/2018

    We will post pictures of the disc inclusions by next Friday for the JFFFV2 [Booklets, mini posters, mini lobby cards disc label etc]

    A side note to those of you who have a coupon from the Larraz release for a percentage off of one of our upcoming releases that was for a year, we will actually start the year from the shipping date of the JFFFV2 to be more fair to you since we are way behind in our future projects.

    Thank you again for all your support these past couple of years, we would like to say it has been fun but really all we can say it has been a real experience!

    Happy weekend from Dorado Films!"

    We ordered Franco's vol 2 last year in June. I'm glad there is finally a release date.
