    I just got this email from CAV - no idea who will be stocking these or how many copies will be available. If I had to guess, I'd say keep an eye on Diabolik but that's only a guess.

    The Witch's Mirror is an outright classic for me, easily in the top tier of the Mexican Horrors.

    Curse Of The Crying Woman is average or just a tad below. The fight scene that goes on and on (only outlasted by the fight in They Live) gets old and the film seems much longer than its running time. But there are some nuggets in here so it isn't a disaster.

    If you don't have them, buy them!
