Thought I'd start off with Second Sight's DVD release of the Austrailian film Lake Mungo (2008), which is being released on Monday 25th July. It's one of a few films which I've wanted to see for ages. Has anyone here got the Region 4 version?


Below is the link to Second Sight's website:



Second Sight DVD website



The BBFC passed the Tim Matheson TV movie Buried Alive (1990) back in March:



Buried Alive (1990) (Tim Matheson TV movie) - BBFC listing page



No UK release date yet for this title and another forthcoming title The Guardian (1990), which was passed by the BBFC just over two weeks ago:

This was one of the first films Carey Lowell filmed after the Bond film Licence to Kill.


One of Second Sight's titles I highly recommend is their release of Picnic at Hanging Rock (1975).

The part quoted post below is post #332 in the main Shout! Factory film titles thread in this (DVD) folder:

The BBFC a week ago passed the film 8 Million Ways to Die (1986) (starring Jeff Bridges). Second Sight are listed as the distributor. The UK release date is Monday 12th September (source: Play.com). The front cover artwork is good, but I would have preferred the CBS FOX video artwork (seen on the film's main IMDb page).


It has been released on DVD in Spain (read about this in a thread on the IMDb forum for the film, and there's a listing on Play.com for the Spanish DVD release).

So Second Sight is also offering older films? I thought they were just another exploitation-only outfit. Looking forward to RE-ANIMATOR and the first sequel as well as SOCIETY.
