Recently Tim Lucas posted the exciting news that he had indeed recorded three more audio commentaries for some upcoming Bava releases. Now, there is a topic at DvdTalk's forum stating that Anchor Bay's second Bava set will street on October 23rd and will contain the following films:
LISA AND THE DEVIL
ROY COLT AND WINCHESTER JACK
FOUR TIMES THAT NIGHT
BAY OF BLOOD
5 DOLLS FOR AN AUGUST MOON
If I had to wager a bet I would say that Tim's commentaries will be on BARON BLOOD, LISA AND THE DEVIL and BAY OF BLOOD but I could very well be mistaken. I must say the lineup for this second box almost makes me more excited than the first as BARON, LISA and BAY are three of my favorite Bava films and I have a lot of love for both 5 DOLLS and FOUR TIMES as well. ROY COLT is a Bava film I have never seen so I am very curious about that one.
I am a disappointed to not see HATCHET FOR THE HONEYMOON in the set but hopefully a better release of that great underrated film will appear down the road. I am also curious to see if HOUSE OF EXORCISM will be offered with LISA AND THE DEVIL like the old Image set had.
Again, I am not completely sure how accurate all of this information is. Apparently it is being reported on a couple of other sites but I haven't found it up for pre-order yet and the date (and contents) might very well change. It does appear that we will indeed be getting another Mario Bava set later this year though, and that is a cause for major celebration.
