    Kino Releasing The Fantomas Films!

    Hot damn, this makes me very happy.

    Coming on Blu-ray January 5, 2016! A Kino Classics Release!


    Louis Feuillade's FANTOMAS (5 Film Collection) Based on the phenomenally popular French pulp novellas, Louis Feuillade's outrageous, ambitious FANTÔMAS series became the gold standard of espionage serials in pre-WWI Europe, and laid the foundation for such immortal works as Feuillade's own Les Vampires and Fritz Lang's Dr. Mabuse films. René Navarre stars as the criminal lord of Paris, the master of disguise, the creeping assassin in black: Fantômas. Over the course of five feature films (which combined to form a 5 1/2-hour epic), Fantômas, along with his accomplices and mistresses, are pursued by the equally resourceful Inspector Juve (Edmund Bréon) and his friend, journalist Jerôme Fandor (Georges Melchior).



    THE FILMS
    • Fantômas in the Shadow of the Guillotine (1913, 54 Min.)
    • Juve vs. Fantômas (1913, 62 Min.)
    • The Murderous Corpse (1913, 90 Min.)
    • Fantômas vs. Fantômas (1914, 60 Min.)
    • The False Magistrate (1914, 71 Min.)


    SPECIAL FEATURES:
    • Two audio commentaries by film historian David Kalat
    • Two rare Feuillade films: The Nativity (1910) and The Dwarf (1912)
    • Louis Feuillade: Master of Many Forms, a ten-minute documentary
    • Gallery of Fantômas images

    Nice. Might re watch Les Vampires. I love these Blu Ray restorations of silent films, some of them look absolutely stunning.
    I'm bitter, I'm twisted, James Joyce is fucking my sister.

    I've actually never seen Les Vampires, I should correct that probably. I have seen the Fantomas movies though and cannot wait for this set.

    Ideally we'll see the sixties movies come out on Blu with subs too... individually or as a set, I don't care, I'd grab them either way.
