I hope so, that would be awesome.
The following exchange took place in July of 2013:
I'm not sure if it's still going to happen or not. I haven't seen a direct comment from Scorpion about the film in a long time.
I haven't either. Hope it is on the way - I'm holding off on that other German Blu in hopes it gets a release here.
No clue. I did recently get the limited "Subkultur" Blu-ray/DVD Combo import release though.
It has a really nice HD restoration... two seperate HD transfers actually, the matted and open-matte versions. All of the old Shriek Show DVD extras appear to be ported over too. The film even has optional English subs as their releases usually do.
I'm interested to see what Scorpion will do as far as new extras, if it's still happening, but I'm extremely happy with the Subkultur release.
I also have the Subkultur BD - it is stunning all-around. Gonna be tough to beat that release. It's a DVD-sized case but there's a really cool wraparound cover that I've never seen done anywhere else. As much as I like the original poster art when/if Scorpion gets around to it, it'll be hard to go back to a standard/generic cover after this.
filmed between feb and march of 79...but not released till summer of 80.
Subkultur it is. Ordered.
Did those of you who have the SubKulture disc order it with the BLOODY FRIDAY campaign or on its own?
Got it from Diabolik.
Same here, got it from Diabolik.
I did contribute to the Bloody Friday campaign, but only the perk for the Switchblade Sisters Blu-ray.
Okay, thanks. I contributed for it, plus both SWITCHBLADE SISTERS and this and was all excited that I might find this in my mailbox soon.
Well, at least it seems like it'll be worth it when I do finally get it.
Woah, wait, Switchblade Sisters on blu-ray? How do I and what do I have to do to get that? Contribute to what campaign?
It was another perk option in the Sukkultur Kickstarter campaign for Bloody Friday. No release date as far as I can tell.
Is contributing the only way to get it or will it be widely available?
Really don't know, the Kickstarter page says:
but I just took that to mean that the backers will get a version that is slightly different than what is sold in stores (kind of like 88 having Zombie Holocaust and Burial Ground slipcovers only for the backers, if not the same). Can't say for sure though because what it says is vague; I'd imagine it would be for sale, just without the English language packaging but you might want to get in touch with Subkultur and see.

It's interesting they've included the raw scan and one with noise reduction. Catering to both the purists and those folks who hate all that unsightly grain isn't such a bad idea. I definitely fall into the former group. Spasmo is pretty unique and I really like Suzy Kendall so I'll be picking this up.
I rather have seen that they skipped the noisereducted version and up the bitrate for the "raw" version.
