TRUCK TURNER (THEME SONG) - BY THE GREAT ISAAC HAYES
TRUCK TURNER (ORIGINAL THEATRICAL TRAILER)
Fantastic announcement! So thrilled to see a return to some classic blaxsploitation.
Very excited for Truck Turner - one of my favorite blaxploitation movies!
Looking forward to Truck Turner - great trashy fun. Hope some of the Pam Grier films are on the docket.
Nice to see TFH getting some film-buff recognition for filling in facts on the B-classics:
I've followed the site since the beginning, and they've given some good irony-free recommendation on "lost" B epics.
If Kino's into said lost classics, they'd do well to keep the partnership going.
As I noted couple of weeks ago, we decided to pickup only 1 "Blaxploitation" film and it was just announced. But we feel that Truck Turner and Cotton Comes to Harlem which we picked up last year are more than just Blaxploitation films, they're actually great films. I personally think both are in top 5 of the genre, with Shaft, Super Fly and The Mack. I don't think Across 110th Street belongs in this genre, its more of a NYC crime film, but again that's just my opinion. Another label has picked up many of the other Blaxploitation films, so most of the key ones should make their Blu-ray debuts this year, but not all.
Tomorrow's announcement will be a 1970s crime film...
Great news either way, Mister Lime. Watched Cotton with my film buddies last month and it was great to see. Prophetically, I ran the trailer for Truck Turner (from the old DVD) before it.
This is the kind of "horror" film that the Scream Factory knows nothing about!
How about a deluxe bluray edition of the legendary British-based Ealing Studios screen fright classic omnibus DEAD OF NIGHT (1945) fully restored and digitally remastered in high definition handsomely augmented with the original theatrical trailer along with background production audio commentaries and oncamera interviews with the respected horror film experts-enthusiasts?
DEAD OF NIGHT (1945) has got to be the all time best horror film anthology next to Universal Pictures earlier groundbreaking FLESH AND FANTASY (1943) and it very much had a definite influence on Rod Serling and his highly regarded THE TWILIGHT ZONE (CBS 1959-63) tv series (which adapted two of the eerie tales).
We are most definitely into "Val Lewton" territory here where the aesthetic mechanics involves solid dramatics, an effective haunting atmospheric mood, a calculated deliberate subtlety (in the Alfred Hitchcock school-of-filmmaking that less is more) leading up to its intended shocks (which still pack a real wallop) and an all-prevailing intelligent perversity at its dark deranged core .
Please Kino bring us a quality bluray release of DEAD OF NIGHT (1945)!
Studio Canal has it so its with Lionsgate, its not likely - they don't sublicense
COMING IN JULY FROM Kino Lorber Studio Classics - ONLY ON BLU-RAY! - JAMES MILLS' REPORT TO THE COMMISSIONER (1975) STARRING MICHAEL MORIARTY, YAPHET KOTTO, SUSAN BLAKELY, HECTOR ELIZONDO, TONY KING, RICHARD GERE, BOB BALABAN, VIC TAYBACK & WILLIAM DEVANE - DIRECTED BY MILTON KATSELAS.
Yup, it's official... You guys can do no wrong! Seriously though, great title announcement.
Don't know if this has been mentioned, but does anyone know if the rights to the1984 French classic "A Sunday In the Country" (Un dimanche à la campagne) is still with the studio?
Any hints about tomorrow's announcement?
Tomorrow's not soon enough?!?
Obviously it's not
July still has 2 from the 60s, 1 from the 70s, 4 from the 80s and 2 from the 90s. It'll be one of those.
THE CRIMSON CULT will be released on July 7th, the same week as DERANGED.
We haven't had a horror or monster movie announced this week , I vote for one of those if there are any more for July !
Still hope for 80s sci-fi..
There are many films in this genre and decade I'm interested in.
How about a horror one tomorrow and a sci-fi one on Friday
