I doubt Axe would be a part of one of these volumes since Severin already released it on a double with Kidnapped Coed and the disc features a commentary by Thrower and other special features with him.colinr0380 wrote: ↑Fri Mar 29, 2019 6:30 pmVery interesting. I have not properly seen any of these to be able to comment on them, but Stephen Thrower did a great appreciation of The Child on the second volume of the Video Nasties trailer compilation, stating that it was one of the films that inspired him to write his book Nightmare USA, so it might have given an indication that it would be next (I would not be surprised if Axe turns up on a future volume, since Thrower also particularly enthused about that one on the first Video Nasties set). The Child looks to be the major film here and looked really good in the trailer and the clips of it shown in Thrower's introduction, with a strangely otherworldly tone to it. It is the only film directed by Robert Voskanian and according to Thrower it is probably the only US film made by a director and producer of Armenian descent, which Thrower suggests might account for its unusual style!
Obviously that release was US only, so it doesn't rule out a UK release but I doubt it would be in one of these volumes since they seem to be aiming for US/UK. I recommend picking up the Axe/Kidnapped Coed disc as it's pretty loaded and includes a 3rd film called Bloody Brothers which the director made by editing those two movies together in order to keep the rights.
