The Monster (1994) with optional English subtitles
• Brand New 4K Master
• Audio Commentary by Film Historian and Critic Peter Tonguette
• Theatrical Trailer

From Roberto Benigni, the legendary star, writer and director of Johnny Stecchino and Life Is Beautiful! Hapless grifter Loris (Benigni) is always willing to take a stab at something new—so he lets Jessica (Nicoletta Braschi, Down by Law), an attractive stranger, move in. What he doesn’t know is that Jessica is an undercover cop who suspects him to be a serial killer and certified sex fiend—and she'll stop at nothing to get her man. Beautifully shot by the great Carlo Di Palma (Blow-Up, Hannah and Her Sisters) and co-starring acting greats Michel Blanc (Monsieur Hire) and Jean-Claude Brialy (Claire’s Knee), The Monster was a monstrous box-office smash and a riotous showcase for Benigni’s slapstick genius.

Baby Blood (1990) with optional English subtitles
• Audio Commentary by Film Historian Lee Gambin and Film Critic Jarret Gahan
• Includes both Original French and English Audio
• Theatrical Trailer

It’s Time to Feed the Baby! It is a voracious parasite from the dawn of creation, surviving centuries in search of the one thing it needs: to be born of a human. But when this cunning creature slithers inside a sexy circus performer (voluptuous French starlet Emmanuelle Escourrou, Lady Blood), it demands gallons of fresh blood to grow stronger. Now this reluctantly expectant mommy and her chatty mutant fetus are off on a cross-country killing spree, where pre-natal care means violent carnage and the ultimate mother’s milk is Baby Blood! Also known as The Evil Within, this French shocker is now presented totally uncut and uncensored with all its infamous womb-raiding, gore-spewing and flesh-baring beautifully restored in HD! Co-written and directed by Alain Robak (Adrénaline).
I'm glad they are including the English audio just so we can hear Gary Oldman as the voice of the fetus monster.

Does it really have Gary Oldman voicing the foetus?! His career was much more interesting when he seemed willing to try anything once.
I've only ever seen it in French, so never even thought about the existence of a dub before.

I actually haven't heard the English dub either, but I've always heard from Horror film circles that he did the voice but went uncredited.

Is LEON MORIN really using the same master than the Criterion? It looks pretty different judging by the DVDBeaver caps.

No, it’s uses Studio Canal’s new 4k restoration (it’s also a longer cut)

Two young British nurses bicycling through the desolate French countryside. A mysterious stranger on a lonely stretch of road. The women become separated and soon after, one of them disappears.

Pamela Franklin (The Legend of Hell House) and Michele Dotrice (The Blood on Satan’s Claw) co-star in this unsettling shocker directed by Robert Fuest (The Abominable Dr. Phibes). And Soon the Darkness remains a favorite of thriller fans for its sexual menace, sinister style and one of the most quietly chilling final twists in ’70s British cinema. Original story and screenplay by Brian Clemens (See No Evil) and Terry Nation (The House in Nightmare Park) with top-notch cinematography by Ian Wilson (The Crying Game, Below).

Yeah that's what I thought. So the Blu-ray.com review is incorrect.
I sent a message to the reviewer to alert him to that error. He sort of acknowledged the difference and made minor changes to the review to at least mention the “director’s cut” but didn’t change his assertion that the master was likely the same. It pretty much defies logic to persist in that claim.

Criterion's disc was never sourced from a 4k restoration to begin with but a HD transfer made from a Spirit Datacine scan of a fine grain master positive, and the new restoration is indeed longer (by 10 min) and the OCN was scanned instead. How one can guess it could be the same restoration is baffling considering all this is public knowledge and the 2 restorations pretty much have nothing in common technically.

• Includes Both the 93-Minute TV Cut and the 101-Minute R Rated Theatrical Cut

Where Innocence Is a Punishable Crime! Deborah Raffin (Death Wish 3) and Lynne Moody (Scream Blacula Scream) star as two young and attractive college students who become enmeshed in a trap of local prejudice and greed when their car breaks down outside a small, sleepy town. Insulted by the girls’ rejection of his amorous advances, the local sheriff (Chuck Connors, The Big Country) arrests them for trespassing and prostitution. After a mockery of a “trial,” they are sentenced to a womens’ prison farm run by brutal guards and a sex-crazed superintendent. Cut off from contact with friends and family, the girls realize that they are at the mercy of a crooked justice system, designed to supply local farms with cheap prison labor. Their only hope is to escape this nightmare, at the risk of their lives. Nightmare in Badham County exposes the terror and corruption of a vicious tyranny that actually exists in certain communities where “justice” is no more than a charade for greed. The great John Llewellyn Moxey (The Night Stalker) directed this realistic and shocking action-drama. Written by Jo Heims (Play Misty for Me) and co-starring Fionnula Flanagan (Death Dreams), Tina Louise (TV’s Gilligan Island), Robert Reed (TV’s The Brady Bunch), Della Reese (TV’s Touched by an Angel), Lana Wood (Diamonds Are Forever) and Ralph Bellamy (Trading Places).

An anthology of wildly diverse, star-studded short films about life in the big city, New York Stories features the creative collaboration of three of America’s greatest filmmakers, Martin Scorsese (Taxi Driver), Francis Ford Coppola (The Godfather) and Woody Allen (Annie Hall).

Woody Allen’s Oedipus Wrecks – Woody Allen (Take the Money and Run) directs and stars in this hilarious comedy as a neurotic lawyer who cannot escape the one woman who looms large in his life: his mother (Mae Questel, the legendary voice of Betty Boop). Mia Farrow (Rosemary’s Baby) and Julie Kavner (Radio Days) star as the “other women” who further complicate his situation.

DVD Special Features:

• Interview with Director Martin Scorsese (32:20)
• EPK Extras with Cast and Crew (38:52)
• Theatrical Trailer

From Martin Scorsese, the legendary director of Taxi Driver, Raging Bull and Goodfellas! Praised as one of the best films of 1997, Kundun received 4 Oscar nominations for Art Direction-Set Decoration (Dante Ferretti and Francesca Lo Schiavo), Cinematography (Roger Deakins), Costume Design (Dante Ferretti) and Score (Philip Glass). It’s the incredible true story of one of the world’s most fascinating leaders—Tibet’s 14th Dalai Lama—and his daring struggle to rule a nation at one of the most challenging times in its history. Powerfully told, deeply spiritual and visually elegant, the film chronicles the life of the young Dalai Lama as he matures in both age and learning. Greeted with both controversy and acclaim upon its release, Kundun is often considered the second film in an unofficial trilogy about crises of faith from director Scorsese, positioned between 1988’s The Last Temptation of Christ and 2016’s Silence.
