Fourteen Jess Franco Films Heading to Blu-ray

Fourteen Jess Franco Films Heading to Blu-ray

Redemption FilmsCult label Redemption Films has revealed that it is planning to bring to Blu-ray fourteen films directed by Jess Franco. Amongst the films that will get the HD treatment are A Virgin Among the Living Dead, The Demons, The Awful Dr. Orloff, The Erotic Rites of Frankenstein, Nightmares Come at Night and the never before released Les Chatouilleuses a.k.a Crazy Nuns.

This news was announced on Blu-ray.com by REDEMPTION Films. Specs and bonus materials will be announced in the future. I'm hoping to see the French, uncovered versions of THE EROTIC RITES OF FRANKENSTEIN as an estra on that disc. The rarely seen period comedy CRAZY NUNS (1974) is an especially welcome addition to the Franco Blu-ray collection.

I asked Redemption Films on their Facebook if their release of "The Erotic Rites of Frankenstein" will be the version with nudity or the clothed version and here's what they replied:
"Re "The Erotic Rites of Frankenstein”, we have access to the original French negatives from the original Comptoir Français du Film version so whatever is on those is what we’ll get. It’s not been mastered yet but this is one of Franco’s best titles imo so I'd like this to be the definitive release if possible."

I'm assuming that's the uncovered version, which is fabulous news!
