    Camera Obscura - a comprehensive overview

    Even though there're a several single threads regarding Camera Obscura's recent and upcoming releases it's a probably a good idea to have a comprehensive overview for new announcements etc.
    I hope it's ok to open this thread if not, just close it

    I'll try to keep you updated through this thread instead of using all the single ones.



    Camera Obscura's catalog:

    *
    the first two titles of the IGCC were releases by Sazuma
    #1 Morte sospetta di una minorenne (Suspected Death of a Minor) (green spine)
    #2 La Settima Donna (The Last House on the Beach) (red spine)

    Sold out = Camera Obscura has no more copies in stock, all were sold to shops.

    the spine colors
    red = horror/terror
    green = poliziotteschi
    yellow = giallo
    blue = erotic/sexploitation

    Excellent. Great to see more Robbe-Grillet on the way. So few of his films have made it to English friendly DVD. I've seen the Italian DVD of this one and the transfer looks amazing. I suppose this release will be using the same master? I'll be buying a copy for sure.

    The movie will be in French with German and English subtitles.
    Camera Obscura said it will be an anamorphic transfer based on the negative. No idea whether it'll be the same master as on the Italian DVD.

    At least www.medienversand.at an Austrian webshop has both DVDs listed and according to their homepage they offer international shipping. But I checked some other shops and you're right,they're quite hard to get and I'll change the available to limited availability.

    Absurd seem to have them in stock here and here. (You may need to click on the links more than once).

    Since you're shipping back to Europe, I don't know how much help this is, but xploitedcinema in the US still has these, and have discounted them:

    Suspected Death:
    http://xploitedcinema.com/catalog/su...or-p-7564.html

    Last House:
    http://xploitedcinema.com/catalog/la...n-p-11217.html

    Wish there were a US site with such good prices on the rest. Diabolik has some of them, but $30-35 plus shipping is just too steep...

    Re: Camera Obscura - a comprehensive overview

    Thanks, everybody. I found the cheapest place for me to order from was Absurd. Didn't think of them when I searched for the DVDs - and they are even from Denmark.

    Marcel--> Thanks a lot for tipping me about Medienversand! They have a few other German and Austrian releases I have been looking for.

    Just watched TERROR EXPRESS last night. Great little sleazy film with a good but not great video presentation. Also sports a great inteview featurette well worth checking out even if you didn't care for the movie.
    Camera Obscura is shaping up to be a wonderul label if indeed they do get all those above titles out. I'll be getting all of them, except for INFERNO. Waiting for the BD of that one. They seem to be picking up the Euro-releasing slack from Severin, who seem to be moving into more mainstream territory, and from Shameless who seem to be back to rehashing things that already have quite decent R1 discs.

    The delivery of IGCC #3 (Rivelazioni di un maniaco sessuale al capo della squadra mobile (So Sweat, So Dead)) will start next week. There were some minor delays during replication but now the discs are finished and everything seems to be on track.

    It's starting to ship, I got mine yesterday. Gorgeous packaging as usual and nice English friendly liner notes too. I'll get into a full review this weekend but after skimming the disc, it looks like they did a really great job on this title and I'm really happy to see this trend continuing.

    Re: Camera Obscura - a comprehensive overview

    Thanks for the heads-up. In the meantime I finally managed to get hold of both 'La settima donna' and 'Morte sospetta di una minorenne' (both from absurd-online.dk) and today I just got 'La ragazza del vagone letto' in the mail from tele-movie-shop.de. Really nice releases!

    Not really, there's no date yet.

    The next two releases will probably be: Yang Chi and Inferno (maybe on BD too)

    Short update on Libido Mania:

    They're using the German version and scenes from the Italian version will be used for the bonus features.
