Kumel's Malpertuis Coming to American Dvd.

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.

Great news! I've just picked up Daughters of Darkness after years of hearing about it, so I'm looking forward to seeing more of his work.

Thanks for the comments,
It looks like they aren't carrying over all of the import's features but still this is an exciting release.
