It is indeed the same extras than Carlotta, except 101 includes the audio commentary and a booklet, while Carlotta has a big 200 pages book. And their release will be encoded by David M.
Sorry, which one is encoded by David M.?

As for the Carlotta, is it true they force French subs on non-French films, or is it a case-by-case basis?

The Carlotta disc will be encoded by David.
Their forced subs are a case-by-case basis. They however mostly don't force them, rather than the opposite, and it's very rare to find Carlotta releases with forced subs.

Phase IV looks really good with Saul Bass’ shorts on disc two. Alternate ending is awesome btw!

Split Second is an absolutely batshit crazy movie where Rutger Hauer chases a Venom-looking demon through a water drenched hellscape. It's not exactly...good but it's a wild time. It's a mish mash of just about every adult eighties genre put together.

Fantastic transfer on Split Second. Really does justice to the film’s visual style, with all its colour and atmosphere, encompassing much in the way of indirect lighting and pulsing lights, and showing off some vivid art direction.

Surprised revisiting how good this film looks. I still enjoy the humour, commitment to comic book mayhem and restless camera movement. A true comic book on film, this one. Hauer was really funny and I like how the film relishes its own absurdity.

Indeed, very endearing.

Also i did appreciate how an entire scene used variations on “we need bigger guns.”

What happened to their August release of Don Siegel’s Black Windmill?

Showing as out of stock everywhere.

Was it ever released in the first place?

101 Films to release Tammy and the T-Rex. For those who haven't seen it, it's the movie where Paul Walker dies and his brain is put into the body of an animatronic Tyrannosaurus Rex ... a concept that I think should be seriously considered for Fast & Furious 10.

I imagine most of us know it from it inexplicably being given a UHD release from Vinegar Syndrome

If you had told me a year ago that in 2020 I'd see this movie in a theatre, but not any Marvel movies, I'd have been very confused. But sure enough, that's what happened.

I don't see this mentioned here, so I may as well- eXistenZ has a standard edition available from 101 Films on their site direct (not just in supermarkets) with the same extras as the LE outside of booklet and slipcover

Coming to Blu-ray 4/12 from 101 Films!

The Head Hunter (2018)

Pre-order: https://amzn.to/38Avua4

On the outskirts of a kingdom, in the shadows of a looming castle, a quiet but fierce medieval warrior protects the realm from monsters. The gruesome collection of trophy heads on the wall of his cabin is missing only one - the monster that killed his daughter. He travels wild expanses on horseback, driven by a thirst for revenge. When his chance for vengeance arrives, it's in a way far more horrifying than he ever imagined.

Special Features:
* How We Made Head Hunter- Commentary with director Jordan Downey and producers Kevin Stewart and Ricky Fosheim
* Why We Made Head Hunter - Commentary with writer-director Jordan Downey and writer Kevin Stewart
* Making of featurette

I noticed 101 a couple of times released the same items as MVD Rewind. With Nemesis and Split Second. MVD just released a great version of the 1997 Mr, Dacascos Drive. Wonder if this could be on the horizon for 101 Films?

Shame no one here mentioned the Silent Night Deadly Night LE before it sold out. Such a lovely set for such garbage films

Oh excellent! Whilst I have qualms about the shift it makes during its very final moments it is still an entertainingly creepy film. Whilst it gets compared a lot to The Blair Witch Project this 2000 Mark Kermode introduction is correct in saying that it probably bears closer comparison to all those more obvious faux-documentaries with authoritative presenters doing voiceovers over rostrum footage that were attached as part of the marketing campaigns to Blair Witch: The Curse of the Blair Witch and Burkittsville 7 which was released to tie-in with Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2.

For all of the discussion of The Blair Witch Project revitalising the found footage genre and having the shakeycam and doomed filmmakers that is similar to Cannibal Holocaust, The Last Broadcast is perhaps the film that feels even more in the tradition of the Deodato film as it uses the same structure of a previous group of filmmakers who have been killed in mysterious circumstances with our main group of new filmmakers leading an investigation into reconstructing and viewing their footage to discover whatever could have happened to them. And The Last Broadcast is especially interesting as an early film tackling the internet with its original band of filmmakers and psychic having met online and the events of the night of their disappearance being 'Twitch streamed' decades avant la lettre via IRC!

Hopefully all these UK labels that are currently making the jump to Nth America aren’t all majority-owned by The Hut Group in 5 years.
