I didn't think that they would surpass The Nude Vampire cover, but the cover for The Rape of the vampire sure looks cool.

Ah, May 29th? Nice ;) Rape of the Vampire and the Demonics would be interesting for me ;)

Fantastic covers again.

It looks like Kino's deal with Redemption is just going to be wonderful for us. Not only are we getting treated to eight Rollin titles so far, but they announced more Françoise Pascal goodness with the July 17th blu-ray release of Burke and Hare! I've been dying to see more of Pascal's films ever since I first saw Iron Rose, but that's been easier said than done...so I can't wait for that release.

On the (reasonably reliable) rumor front...I read that the next batch of Kino Rollin releases will be Two Orphan Vampires and The Living Dead Girl. Have you heard anything about that, Jeremy? Definitely hoping that's true...
