    picked up The Nude Vampire, Lips of Blood, and Fascination, sight unseen. I've never seen anything by Rollin, although I also just recently picked up The Grapes of Death during the Synapse sale. Here's hoping I dig on them. I may have missed it, but any word on Hatchet for the Honeymoon?

    Not a street date, but it's more or less verified as part of the package, right? (HATCHET, that is.) Hope you like the Rollins. Go watch them!

    Updates from Facebook:
    So that's... wow. And Mask of Satan sounds like Black Sunday so that'll be really great if they're releasing so much Mario Bava on Blu-ray. It's interesting to see Kino and Redemption going full steam ahead on these while all other studios are crying poor.

    I've never seen a Rollin movie before. There are several on Netflix Streaming; any recommendations? (I don't care to blind-buy any of the BDs.)

    I wouldn't think of Rollin as a good blind buy. I've only seen Fascination but it was very good. But then I think anything with Brigitte Lahaie would be good too.

    So I would also check out The Grapes of Death (1978) and The Night of the Hunted (1980). I hear Grapes of Death is especially good.

    IMO, SHIVER OF THE VAMPIRES or REQUIEM FOR A VAMPIRE would be the best place to start.

    Got mine from Diabolik already. REQUIEM is a tremendous improvement over the Image R1 disc.

    I had the first 5 pre-ordered and none of them had a slip when they arrived, neither did Virgin Witch or The Asphyx.

    I also got the first five Rollin blu-rays and none of them had the slip cover. Same for Asphyx as well.

    FYI seems deep discount has a lot of these for around 13.00 - not sure if anyone has seen a better price or not - at that price I may pick up Shiver of the Vampires and see if I enjoy that enough to blind buy any others

    Finally watched Shiver of the Vampires - and gotta say I really enjoyed it - this was more to my liking then Living Dead Girl - The other blu I blind bought was Fascination so I hope I like that just as much

    Their March slate was already announced with NUDE FOR SATAN and ZETA ONE. I'm guessing the Rollins got pushed back a month or two.

    More Brigitte Lahaie? In HD? Where do I sign? I blood OK?

    I take it Synapse lost Grapes of Death then though? That kinda sucks, I'd trust them more then Redemption. Although their latest products have been good.
