    Code Red Releasing Conquest

    So now it's official.

    "Coming soon on Blu-Ray, to be sold exclusively at Ronin's website, and diabolik for international, is Lucio Fulci’s cult classic “CONQUEST”. The film will feature a brand new HD scan from 2018, as well as a brand new on-camera interview with the star Jorge Rivero. Also featuring a brand new audio commentary from film historians Troy Howarth and Nathaniel Thompson. The disc will feature not only the original poster art for the cover, but also custom art done by Wes Benscoter and a slip sleeve with the custom art limited to the first 700 units. So keep an eye on this and Ronin’s site for more details!"

    Cool cover. But I think I'll wait for another release because I don't want to deal with an unskippable Bananaman sketch.

    As I recall, a lot of CONQUEST was shot with a gauze in front of the lens to intentionally give an otherworldly sense of soft focus and heavily diffused light. I wonder how the HD presentation will look.

    Exactly.

    CONQUEST is one of the three Fulci films I most want on BD, joined by CONTRABAND and NEW GLADIATORS. But!

    I'll be able to wait a little longer for a release in Germany of the UK. It helps that I think the newly commissioned artwork blows.

    As weird as it may sound, this would probably need a 4K scan to look decent, and an actual UHD disc to look good. Sadly, old banana-ass doesn’t get the concept of supersampling and won’t even pay for 2K scans, so it’ll look like shit.

    Will wait for an imminent UK or German release. Olsens will never get a single cent from me.

    I like Bananaman's bedspread.
