United Kingdom Second Sight Films (UK)

I did a quick search, and couldn't find a thread for this company; if one exists, please feel free to merge this one.

They've so far released some great titles on BD, notably: The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Picnic at Hanging Rock, and more recently The Return of the Living Dead.

I noticed yesterday that they'd submitted Re-Animator to the BBFC, and dropped them a quick e-mail last night to confirm whether we'd see a Blu-ray release.

I got this response earlier today:

Thanks for getting in touch. We are indeed planning a Blu-ray release of Re-Animator, together with Bride of Re-Animator, From Beyond and Society. Plans for packaging aren't finalised yet but keep an eye on our website over the coming weeks for details as they happen.

Next up which will actually be a 3 disc Blu-ray release of the classic Basket Case trilogy which will also be in a limited edition Steelbook.
Absolutely fantastic news!

That is awesome, have the RE-Animator R1 millenium release and The Beyond. Would buy all of these you've mentioned.

Never seen Basket Case, but would still buy day one !!

Cheers for the update.

Wow, just when i thought the small shops were all backing off the smaller scale horror releases. This along with Shout's new Scream Factory are signs of a very bright future for horror on home video.

Signed at the AFM in November: I DIDN'T COME HERE TO DIE. We are knocked-out to be releasing the film that Bloody-Distgusting.com called;

'ONE OF THE BEST HORROR FILM DEBUTS SINCE SAM RAIMI UNLEASHED THE EVIL DEAD'.

This future-classic is a mash-up of retro horror and dark humour and has been selected for one of Bizarre Magazine's monthly 'Cut' Screenings.

Have a look at our just-finished trailer of the film Fangoria called a 'must see' and Shock Horror called 'an eye-popping horror'.

WARNING GRAPHIC CONTENT: We just got an 18 Certificate confirmed today - don't press play unless you are over 18.

It would be a bit daft if a law enacted in 1937 didn't apply to films made in the 70s, would it?

As far as I can make out, the Act doesn't actually apply to home video releases - merely to cinema exhibition. However, the intent is there and no doubt if the British public got wind of any home video releases containing animal cruelty, there would be a swift retrospective amendment.

I'm strongly against censorship but this is a different case. This is not about cutting a film because of a (mistaken and unsupported) belief that the content of the scene will somehow damage the viewer.

This is about cutting a scene because real physical damage was caused to an animal that had little choice in the matter. It sends a clear signal to film-makers that, if they transgress this law, the scene will be redundant, in the UK at least. It acts as an effective disincentive to commit what would be a criminal act here.

I get that people might want to import the cut version, but the law - in this case - is an important and worthwhile one. Film-makers in the 70s knew fine well they were injuring animals - they just didn't care.
