New Jean Rollin Soundtrack Release Coming From Finders Keepers Records, Plus News on Night of the Hourglass

Cathy Castel steps behind the camera on the set of one of Rollin's Michel Gentil productions of the seventies.

Here's a really exciting bit of news for Rollin fans. It looks like the incredible label Finders Keepers Records are going to be releasing a double soundtrack compilation vinyl and CD in the near future. Here is a link that mention this collection, which looks to include music from Requiem for a Vampire, Fascination, The Nude Vampire and Rape of the Vampire. It's been awhile since we have had a Rollin soundtrack project so this is really terrific to hear. Also, the releases I have from Finders Keepers have all been top of the line (in regards to both sound quality and visual presentation) so this should be a real quality release. While the link at Finders Keepers just mentions the double LP/CD comp, this post at Salvation makes it sound like they might do a whole series. Either way, this is very welcome news.

Also, it looks like Night of the Hourglass is now available on PAL Region 2 DVD with an English subtitle option. Diabolik DVD has it listed but as of right now it is out of stock. I will be placing my order within the next couple of weeks and can't wait to see this film. Has any reader here had an opportunity yet to view this particular DVD???

I've never bought anything from Diabolik DVD. But apparently they do ship overseas so it's tempting. It just depends on how much they charge for shipping.

Yup, I have the german DVD from "Bertucci Films" and I am pretty glad to have had a chance to finally understand it ^^
So far I had the french DVD included in the (limited) Autobiography

Yes, I have the German DVD and the quality is quite good. I bought the autobiography without the DVD so I was glad to be able to find an English/German-friendly DVD release.
