(Logo designed & owned by Eric Mache)- VC was a printed, subscription only fanzine created, published and written by Carl Morano and Eric Mache in the mid-90s! This blog is hosted by Carl Morano and will feature all new content and vintage reprint material!
This exclusive theatrical screening of Mario Bava's BLOOD & BLACK LACE (1964), the prototype giallo, promises to be a colorful and powerful experience. The source master is Arrow Video's new 2K HD scan of the original camera negative to be projected digitally (I assume) in its original Italian language version (apologies to the Paul Frees fans who love the English dub!). I did see a pretty ratty 16mm print years ago at the Film Forum, NYC but that's much better to be forgotten. The Arrow blu-ray is available for pre-orders already!
These two upcoming blu-ray releases will be of special interest to VC readers. FLYING DEUCES (1940) has long languished in public domain limbo and the definitive restored edition remains Kino's DVD from several years back. It will be interesting to see Network's HD restoration. DEADLIER THAN THE MALE was previously issued on DVD by Network and should look nice in HD!
