Mondo Digital reviews The Mafu Cage: http://mondo-digital.com/mafucage.html
Coming Mon 22nd, you can order from the Ronin site the limited edition of the Paul Naschy classic THE MUMMY’S REVENGE.
This will feature not only an HD version of the Spanish cut, but also an HD version of the longer Spanish cut as well (with one rare SD scene inserted).
Featuring both Spanish and English language options, with proper translated English subtitles.
It will also feature an audio commentary with film historian Troy Howarth.
Liner notes by Mirek Lipinski.
The Blu will come with a beautiful slip sleeve, and only 1,500 of this disc will be made. This title will NOT be available through retail, so pick it up before it sells out and is gone forever.
***TERROR TRAIN UPDATE***
The upcoming Scorpion Releasing Blu-ray of “Terror Train” lands at Ronin Flix on July 22nd!
Seems like ages ago this was acquired by Code Red. And with Lipinski's involvement that's a good indication the longer Spanish cut will be the most complete version.
Hopefully the other Naschy titles are not far behind!
Blu-ray.com reviews The Mafu Cage: https://www.blu-ray.com/movies/The-Mafu-Cage-Blu-ray/199812/#Review
The three that were originally with Code Red are now owned, and will be released by, Scorpion. The Mummy's Revenge, Fury of the Wolfman and Assignment Terror. According to a post on FB, Fury has taken the most work and will be released last, so Assignment Terror should be the next one to come out.
Intriguingly, the post goes on to say that there are a few more Naschy titles coming from Scorpion that have yet to be announced!

Terror Train is supposed to be available beginning today at Ronin Flix. Something tells me it won't happen.
Mummy's Revenge looks like a hoot! I ordered that and Terror Train.
Terror Train is up for ordering on their site now, along with The Mummy's Revenge.
Mummy’s Revenge for me. I find Terror Train kind of dull, no need to double dip.
Kinda curious about Mummy’s Revenge, but not completely sold on it? Would you guys recommend it?
Do you like Naschy, in general?
I should have it in a few days, can report on a/v quality then.
I just watched it and liked it. If you like the feel of Naschy films this is on par. Has its violent moments as well. But I'd stress Angelman's sentiment that already being into Naschy helps determine the probability of you liking it.
I like Naschy, but I’m not much of a Mummy fan. I was planning on getting it today, but I’ve spent an awful lot of money this month. It’d help if it was directed by Leon Klimovsky.
Thanks for the feedback, guys. I'm not a Naschy fan per se. Nothing against him, but he was never a selling point for me. The Mummy movie does feature a cool smashed in face, but all in all, I think it's a pass.
I ordered Mummy's Revenge and already received a shipped notice.
As did I.
Mummy's Revenge isn't even a Mummy movie - so I've heard. Don't know if I want this. I generally don't tend to follow actors or Directors so it being a Naschy flick isn't a selling point for me. If someone convinces me this isn't some Spanish soap opera I'll bite.
Not sure where you heard that. Naschy plays a few different characters in the film but one of them is certainly a mummy. Most reviews tend to show him in his mummy makeup.
