    The 2000 release was cut. You can read about it here http://www.movie-censorship.com/report.php?ID=741327 Mondo Macabro is a pretty decent label. They've released classics like Alucarda and Satan's Blood and entertaining trash like Lady Terminator. Oh and they released Hell's Ground which was a pretty good horror / gore film as far as recent movies are concerned..

    Thanks for sharing the link Eric.


    Have also heard very good things about Mondo Macabro. Only title of theirs I've got is Living Doll. Looks like that Making Of documentary which was on that release will be included on the disc for Don't Open Till Christmas (read this on AV Maniacs' forum).


    Do you know if the Mondo Macabro release will be uncut?

    Have never seen Don't Open Till Christmas (1984). Decided against not getting the Film 2000 DVD release as I wasn't sure if it was uncut or not. Knew there had been cuts to the film (either for a theatrical, VHS or DVD release). Now, the documentary on the Living Doll release from Mondo Macabro could be the documentary about producer Dick Randall and the Making Of documentary is brand new. Or it could be the other way round.


    It's a slasher film I've been wanting to see, as even though she only appears for a few minutes it's a Caroline Munro film I've been interested in seeing (along with Slaughter High). Also, there don't appear to be many Christmas slasher films.


    Don't know if the Film 2000 release is presented in widescreen or not, but that does sound promising the Mondo Macabro release being a "brand new anamorphic transfer from negative".



    *****


    As it appears to be OOP (and not sure if the release listed on Amazon.com is a legit DVD release), would like to suggest Home Sweet Home (1981) for a re-release/release on DVD.

    Killer's Moon (filmed in 1978 but not released until 1982) is being re-released by Redemption in a "remastered" edition on DVD and Blu-ray on Tuesday 13th March, 2012 (source: DVD Aficionado and Amazon.com). It was previously released on DVD by Redemption in 2008.


    Have Redemption released titles on Blu-ray before, and if so, are they region free?

    An early 80's slasher which I'd like to see released on DVD is Disconnected (1983). Not sure if it was filmed as a straight to VHS release or not. It's IMDb company credits page says it was distributed by Active Home Video and Video Treasures (VHS release in the US with the latter).
