New Bava Box Set Streets Tuesday


Just a reminder that Stanley Kubrick isn't the only important director being honored with a new box set October 23rd. Anchor Bay's massive eight disc second volume of their Mario Bava set streets as well. This collection is already shipping from some online vendors like Deep Discount, and it is still available at some insanely cheap pre-order prices. The box, with new transfers of some of Bava's greatest works and some new Tim Lucas commentaries is definitely one of the most important releases of the year.

Got my copy on order and I'm looking forward to it even more than vol 1. An audio fix on TWITCH, the chance to see (at last) LISA AND THE DEVIL in a transfer befitting its visual glories and as for BARON BLOOD... I've seen this film at the theatre, on video, Laserdisc and DVD and it's never looked as good as I dreamt it could do. Vol 1 is available here in the UK but it's around double the price of the Region 1 set and doubtless vol 2 will go the same way.

I definitely want to get this. I love Mario Bava, one of my favorite directors of all time. This is something I really plan to get. It sounds awesome.

Thanks Steve,
I can't wait to see Twitch with teh audio fixed as it is one of my favorites, and of course Lisa is as well. The screen caps Tim posted at Video Watchblog looked incredible...that is amazing you saw Baron Blood at a theater...

Thanks Keith,
I think the set is going to be amazing...last I checked DeepDiscount had it for around thirty bucks so it is incredibly cheap right now...thanks again..

Managed to see BARON BLOOD about 7 or 8 years ago as part of a Mario Bava retrospective at London's National Film Theatre. I also caught KILL, BABY..KILL!, DR. GOLDFOOT AND THE GIRL BOMBS and DANGER:DIABOLIK. One of my friends who lives in London saw every film they screened. Apparently, RABID DOGS wasn't shown as Lea Lander refused to release the print but most of Bava's films were shown during the course of a month.

I'm looking forward to seeing some of these films in a good print for a change.Too bad they had to include Roy Colt tho-its probably his worst film along wioth Dr Goldfoot.

Thanks Steve,
That is amazing that you got to see those. I am jealous. Shame about Rabid Dogs, that one is a real favorite...

thanks LastYear,
Roy Colt is one I have ever never seen and I have been curious about it...thanks for the comments.
