A very good bit of news as it looks like Detroit's Barrel Entertainment is going to be releasing Harry Kumel's striking MALPERTUIS in a 2 dvd edition on June 24th. This very haunting feature was the follow up to Kumel's incredible DAUGHTERS OF DARKNESS and stars Orson Welles, Susan Hampshire and Jean-Pierre Cassel among others. It looks like Barrel's disc will carry over many of the special features of the import Belgian Royale version.
This has been a film that I have been hoping for an American dvd release for awhile so this is very welcome news.
