    Thanks! That's already quite a find. I just tried to order, but for foreign orders it looks like they only take paypal (by email request) - I'll have to wait for my next paycheck...

    Watched the X-Rated Kult disc over the weekend and was pretty surprised. I had really low expectations going into this, something about hearing how it was going to have clips from his other movies in it really turned me off, but I'm glad to say that they were far exceeded. The best way to describe it would be to simply say that it's typical Rollin fare, it's got a lot of what I loved about his previous work (not counting the clips) and is basically a Rollin retrospective told through/driven by a story about a the legacy of a fictional director.
    Will re-watch again soon and would love to see this on BD in the near future (along with the rest of his catalog...)! Can't wait for his next film now, whenever it gets finished, released theatrically, and finally comes to an English friendly DVD...

    I just ordered this finally myself, and am looking forward to it. And then his next one - Le masque de la meduse - seems to have been finished in 2009 but I can't find any info about a DVD release yet :(

    Yeah, Diabolik blew through their initial order pretty quickly, but they got some more in and I ordered it the other day. Not as into post-1982 Rollin, but FIANCEE OF DRACULA was quite good and he rarely sucks.

    Yeah, he did have some stinkers in there - Sidewalks of Bankok and Killing Car were execrable, but I was also pleasantly surprised by Fiancee of Dracula. I wasn't expecting much from it, but it turned out to be very good.
