View Full Version : AZTEC MUMMY films to be released by Something Weird?
07-19-2003, 03:33 PM
From THE DIGITAL BITS:
"Image Entertainment will release a double bill of Curse of the Aztec Mummy (1957) and The Robot Versus the Aztec Mummy (1958) on August 12th. The films come courtesy of the Something Weird Video series."
Wasn't there a problem with the rights for Mexican horror films? Didn't THE BRAINIAC DVD get cancelled? I really hope the Aztec Mummy films will indeed be released as scheduled.

A majority of the films owned by Alameda Films were put on hold until the rights issues could be worked out.
As it stands the information on the Aztec Mummy double bill is confused at best.Some websites are listing it as cancelled and others are still taking orders for it.
We probably won't know until 8/12.

Well, the situation is getting weirder as Amazon lists the Samson double feature as being for sale! Anybody have the definitive word on this?

Movies Unlimited lists the street date for the Aztec Mummy double-feature as October 14th of this year, and is currently accepting pre-orders. Hmmmm...

Amazon has separate listings for SAMSON VS. THE VAMPIRE WOMEN and SAMSON IN THE WAX MUSEUM, and is offering a deal if you buy them both together. I think someone there is slightly confused...I know I am!

Actually, i noticed this last week and was tempted to order. Amazon does show SW's "Samson vs. the Vampire Women / Samson in the Wax Museum" with "Usually ships within 11 to 12 days" availability. http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00009Q4WG

Well the first link is for the Beverly Wilshire dvds so be careful.

I just received Something Weird's latest catalogue and under their list of "titles no longer available" are almost all of the Murray Mexican dubs. The list includes the Nostradamus films, all of the vampire titles, Little Red Riding Hood films, just about everything they previously announced for DVD.
