I haven't stopped by here in awhile, and so this thread has not been updated in quite some time. Here's the latest.

Regarding our overall plans for the first half of 2015

Quote:
 
THE ONLINE STORE

First off, we are setting up a new online store that will supply backlist but also lots of new, exclusive offers. Watch this space for more info as it becomes available.

The first of the new lines will be red box releases of Blu Rays, starting with The Fan in February. This will be limited to 500 numbered copies. We’ll be giving more details later when we have them. The Fan will also be available as a retail Blu Ray/DVD combo on March 10th, a few weeks after the red box version goes on the website.

Later in the year there’ll be a red box exclusive of Girl Slaves of Morgana le Fay. This will be limited to 666 numbered copies and will have a totally different sleeve design from the DVD release. More info when we have it.

NEW TITLES

Other new titles for 2015 include The Spider (Zirneklis), an amazing sex/horror film from Latvia. Yup, you read that right – LATVIA! It’s a really great film that we think will surprise a lot of people.

We’re also going Greek with a new line of Hellenic exploitation goodies. The first two releases will be Tango of Perversion and The Wife Killer.

Tango is a really great exploitation gem from 1973. It’s got everything that you would expect from that vintage: masses of politically incorrect behaviour, dollops of sleaze, naked scenes galore, drugs, voyeurism, necrophilia, even a little bit of Greek psych-rock. In fact… is there anything this film hasn’t got?

The Wife Killer – the Greek title was the much less queasy Crime in Kavouri – was originally released in the US in 1976 as Rape Killer. We’ll probably avoid that title for obvious reasons…

The film is very close in style to the Italian giallo thrillers of the 70s and is another Hellenic exploitation gem. It has the same male lead as Tango – the wonderful Larry Daniels, known to his mother as Lakis Komninos and still active in Greek film and theatre to this day.

All three of the above will be brand new telecines and in the case of the Greek films, in English and Greek language dubs.

Burn, Baby Burn!

Finally, we’ll be putting out a very limited number of backlist titles as burns. This is just to satisfy the small trickle of orders we get for titles that are about to run out of license. More info on actual titles when they are available. But these will be very small numbers, less than 100. Once they’re gone, they’re gone. That’s it, folks!

Have happy hols and see you in 2015. Thanks for all your interest and support and please let us know your thoughts or comments on any of the above. We’re here to listen.


And some more specifics regarding our upcoming release of THE FAN:

Quote:
 
In February we'll put out a BD-only version in a red case, limited to only 500 copies, numbered, and sold exclusively through the MM website, $25.

The following month will see a widely distributed BD/DVD combo, which will itself be limited to either 1500 or 2000 copies, SRP $29.99.
The content of the two editions will be exactly the same, the only difference being the packaging.

If you are interested in this release and want to see more MM blu rays, I urge you to buy the direct-sale limited version. We will be doing this for all our BD releases, trying to offset the huge costs involved. Thanks!

The pre-order date for the LE will be Jan. 26th. Keep an eye out here or at our Facebook page for more details in the coming weeks.

Oh, and yes, we will ship international.

So the limited version has less content than the regular version, i.e. no DVD? What's the point of that... Also English friendly DVDs and Bluray of The Fan has been in germany for years.

And releasing DVD-rs ? Argh. Just do a digital download then. Or at least make it clear from the cover that it's a DVD-R to prevent scam artists from selling them as OOP versions on ebay .

Release more stuff that is not available anywhere, like all those indonesian horrors! Oh well, at least that greek and latvia stuff seems interesting

Most fans are not interested in the DVD part of the combo pack, many just want the blu. So we do the BD-only version with the red case (cause those are more expensive, so we only do a limited amount), for those fans. In the future we are going to try and do more things to make these direct-sales versions more "special". Stay tuned.

The DVD-R thing is just to keep a few physical copies out there for fans who would still like to have a copy on their shelves, but don't want to pay the exorbitant prices some OOP titles are going for. They are only going to be sold on our website, and they will be clearly marked as what they are.

The German BD of THE FAN has only been out a few months, not years, and it only happened because of our tracking down the film and commissioning the new HD master. It's never had any release in the US, which is the market Mondo Macabro releases in, though we are glad to cater to our overseas friends!

Yes, we will continue, as we always have, to release stuff no one else is. But the problem with doing movies from places like Indonesia or Turkey is that they often do not have usable materials, or are asking for waaaaay to much money, or both!

Anything else? ;)

I remember two years ago when I was trying to buy the copyrights for Rama Superman Indonesia, Gundala Putra Petir and Darna Ajaib they asked 25,000 US$ per title....not even Leonardo Di Caprio's Titanic would cost so much!

Talking about baltic countries and unknown gems: what about re-releasing the two Raul Tammet's sci-fi shorts "Soolo" (1979) and "Pulmapilt" (1981)?
I heard there was a DVD release made for the Tallin Film Festival a few years ago but it was a DVD-r released only for those who attented the screening....I watched the movies and they are quite interesting
