    That would be great. Honestly, I love stuff like the Blood Island movies and the Hemisphere set, and Al Adamson is sorta in a similar vein. I dunno if I need EVERY movie in that set, but if it was for the right price, I would probably nab it up. Otherwise, I'm fine with grabbing whichever ones I really want as solo releases. At this point I'm buying blu-rays for the entertainment value of the films alone and collectibility is meaningless to me, so as long as I can own the films I want to see in the best possible presentation (for blu-ray at least) I'm good. Though I did make an exception with getting the big Blood Island bundle because we wanted to incoporate several of the included items into our basement tiki lounge.

    I love the idea of the Adamson set, but knowing me I'd watch the doc and a movie or two, then never touch it again.

    I feel the same way as you and Grim. I feel compelled to buy any release like this. But it'd just sit there, so the $200 would essentially be wasted.

    Plenty will be available down the line. I feel pretty good about that.

    Well, I gotta say that I was initially hesitant about the Adamson set, but ended up ordering it last month when I had some spare change for it.

    Definitely expensive... but when I thought more about it, there were more movies in the set that I wanted (plus had actually seen before) than initially realized.

    I'm still waiting for an Al Adamson-type of set for films that are actually good. So far it's been nothing but zero budget crap and that's not counting the rumored upcoming Andy Milligan collection. It's like Severin is releasing junk on purpose lol

    Does this mean you don't like the Blood Island films? I'm not sure they would be classified as good but they're certainly entertaining.

    They're OK time-wasters. The crazy zooms don't suit me, though. They trigger my Vertigo. May have to unload the set because of it.

    Eh, taste is subjective. The Blood Island and Hemisphere of Horror sets speak 100% to my sensibilities. Goofy mid-century schlock with cheap production values but a ton of heart. Not for everyone, but I think a lot of people value those films.

    Soak up the trailer for The Complete Lenzi Baker Giallo Collection. This will be a thick, sturdy chipboard Splitcase, housing 4 Blu-Rays and 2 CDs! The first 1000 direct orders from the Severin webstore will also get 4 postcards with all of the new key arts! Pre-order here: https://severin-films.com/shop/lenzi-baker-bundle/

    The links through Facebook are messed up for me so here are the direct links:

    The Complete Lenzi|Baker Giallo Collection [6-Disc Blu-ray Box Set] $78.00
    https://severin-films.com/shop/lenzi-baker-collection/

    The Lenzi|Baker Bundle $90.00
    https://severin-films.com/shop/lenzi-baker-bundle/

    Paranoia T-shirt $20.00
    https://severin-films.com/shop/paranoia-shirt/

    The Bundle's not a bad deal if you consider the t-shirt at full price (which never go on sale).

    And I don't know if I dreamed it but it looked like the Al Adamson set was back in stock for a hot minute there but it's out of stock now...

    It definitely was last night. I was just browsing on their store and it was available to order again then.

    Apparently they said they'd had some cancellations, and a few would be made available in the store again.

    I think I'm going to get the bundle, now to talk myself into spending the extra money for the non-Media mail shipping.

    Went ahead and pre-ordered the Lenzi boxset last night minus the t-shirt, Just added the Changeling ball for $3 to get free shipping. Money is tight right now but this set is definetly worth owning, Severin stepped up on this one.

    I was on the fence with this especially considering free shipping is for orders of at least $80 and this was $78. In the end I pre-ordered and added the Asian Satan's Slave to make the free shipping. My main reason for hesitating was that I felt I would be able to get better prices down the line but decided it wasn't worth taking the chance.

    I pre-ordered it last night also, and added one Black Blu-ray Case to cross the free shipping threshold. I really had no interest in the t-shirt.
