United Kingdom Dellamorte Dellamore (Cemetary Man) - Shameless Screen Entertainment

I emailed Shameless asking them if they have plans to release DD on blu-ray and they replied stating that they are planning to release it on blu-ray in the near future (see below).

[Show spoiler]


I'm a huge fan of this wonderfully bizzare movie. I'm very curious to see what the Shameless release would be like.

Oh FANTASTIC. Just the other day when the review of Stagefright was put up, I was wondering aloud in that thread if a UK or US label would put up a good HD release of DD. It's a movie that starts off like camp and then moves into almost Lynchian dream world territory.

Fantastic! I may retire the Italian BD.

Dread to think what Shameless will do with the cover though. The pervs

I've had a few Shameless titles in my collection. They didn't seem too interested in picture quality, only title availability. Many of their releases were of films that had been banned in the UK so I got the impression they were just happy to license the titles and release them "as is". I remember their Cannibal Holocaust BD leaving a lot to be desired in the PQ dept. Hopefully something has changed at the label and they will focus on more on improving PQ.

Will be interesting to see how PQ compares to my Italian blu-ray.

I recently got a copy of the German release that has the 3d and 2d versions, but haven't had a chance to watch it yet. I always liked this film and hadn't watched it since it's first release on dvd years ago.

That's worrying. CH is a film which IMO never looked particularly "good" (nor was it supposed to), the gorgeous visuals of DD are a huge draw, so this is definitely a project which has to be done well to be worthwhile.

I have the Italian BD of this, so I doubt I'll be double dipping. However, if Arrow had gotten a hold of this I probably would have.

Would this release have a chance of being region free? I've been looking to get this on blu-ray for some time now, not sure why it's not getting released by anyone in the US. I've been rocking my DVD version now for quite a bit but my region free player kicked the bucket I WANT TO WATCH THIS AGAIN

That one's Region 2. And you should avoid buying ANYTHING from Laser Paradise. They are notorious for releasing shitty DVDs and Bootlegs, too. Although this is one of the very few good discs from them (1.66 letterboxed), don't support them. Try getting Anchor Bay's out of print release (titled Cemetery Man). Good quality, anamorphic and has extras. Or, of course, go region free and get the cheap (and great) Italian Blu-ray.

Interesting.. when they were asked why there wasn't a BD release initially we were told it was because the HD master had been lost!

Cannibal Holocaust has already been released by Grindhouse in the US and is region free if you're not happy with Shameless.



HD master lost? How can they lose it. I'm sure once a master is made everyone makes copies of those MP4 files lol. Everyone getting their USB sticks out.

Yeah, I don't support the company, I bought it probably at least 3-4 years ago because it was the only version of the film I could find on eBay. I'm hoping it gets a BD release in the states soon.

Has anyone tried contacting Arrow about this wonderful movie? They are about the only ones who could really do it justice on Blu Ray.

Shameless own the UK rights so I don't think there's much point in contacting Arrow. The master of the Italian and German re-release has been described as upscaled 720p so there's definetly room for improvement.
