Severin is releasing Traitement de choc-- isn't this StudioCanal?
Never heard of it before. Is this worth checking out?
I didn’t recall liking it all that much but then a board search reveals 2008 me thought otherwise

Have you seen Flic Story or Shock Treatment though, they're really good.
I remember nothing about it other than that it’s set on an island/shoreline. May have to pick it up to see if I was right

Cheers. The upcoming Mademoiselle from BFI is a must, maybe this too. Like a double bill.

Been a while since I saw something French so couple days ago started with Jenny (1936) which is Marcel Carné’s debut full-length film and have to admit not liking it, simply uninteresting. Apparently was controversial in the 30s.

I've seen Traitement de choc and found it not spectacular at all. Perhaps its most notable aspect (if this is your inclination) is that Alain Delon goes fully nude.

So does Annie Girardot. I watched this in mid 1980s and remember nothing, but that nude beach scene. So, agree with Feego's post...

Never heard of these before but I am excited, especially Eerie Tales sounds interesting. Considering of getting this.

This looks interesting: Severin is releasing Buddy Giovinazzo's 1996 film No Way Home. Here's the Mondo Digital review.

This item does not appear on Severin's site.
Is it sold out? Is it available through any other source?

That's a bit annoying. I highlighted it so that I could pick it up when I did my next US order. Hopefully they may make it more widely available later on.

Unfortunately, no. Like Combat Shock previously, it’s limited release was part of their licensing deal with Lionsgate.

You could shoot them an email and ask if they have any remaining copies they can sale, earlier this year they were selling people copies of Blood on Satan's Claw (last year's Black Friday exclusive) via email.

so, wait-they can conceivably rescue some additional Lionsgate titles if they make small production runs?

Severin talked about it on their Black Friday podcast, Giovinazzo is friends with someone at Lionsgate and he asked if they'd let Severin release it and as a favor they agreed to let a limited run Blu-ray be released.

The Eurocrypt of Christopher Lee Collection [9-Disc Blu-ray/CD Box Set]
Disc 1: The Castle of the Living Dead (1964)
Disc 2: Challenge the Devil aka Katarsis (1963)
Disc 3: Crypt of the Vampire (1964)
Disc 4: Sherlock Holmes and the Deadly Necklace (1962)
Discs 5 & 6: Theatre Macabre (1971-1972)
Christopher Lee hosted this anthology television series originally produced by Film Polski (KNIFE IN THE WATER, THE TIN DRUM) in the tradition of ALFRED HITCHCOCK PRESENTS and BORIS KARLOFF’S THRILLER. Lee delivers the intro and outro for each half-hour at his imposing and often cheeky best, while the tales themselves – adapted from stories by Poe, Dostoevsky, Ambrose Bierce, Robert Louis Stevenson and Oscar Wilde – are written and/or directed by filmmakers that include Andrzej Zulawski (POSSESSION) and Academy Award® winner Andrzej Wajda (MAN OF IRON). Dubbed into English and featuring ‘additional dialogue’ by Jesse Lasky Jr. (THE TEN COMMANDMENTS, 7 WOMEN FROM HELL) with new theme music by Ron Goodwin (VILLAGE OF THE DAMNED, FRENZY), it has remained largely unseen since its brief airing on American TV in 1971. These 24 surviving episodes have now been scanned in 2K from the original negatives.
Disc 7: The Torture Chamber of Dr. Sadism (1967)(now scanned in 4K from the original German negative with all-new Special Features.)
Disc 8: Relics From the Crypt
A collection of interviews with Christopher Lee over the years and other related horror featurettes, including the first ever release of the recently unearthed 20 minute 1964 Swiss TV documentary ‘HORROR!!!’ featuring interviews with Lee, Boris Karloff, Vincent Price, Roy Ashton, Roger Corman and behind-the-scenes footage of THE GORGON and MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH.
Disc 9: The Castle of the Living Dead Original Soundtrack CD

Why not order the discs by release date? Anyways, Severin is on a roll!

Should I just keep my original blu for Santa Sangre that I have never got around to viewing or pick up the UHD out of support or the format?
