    Excellent suggestion, Alex. And also probably the only English friendly Blu-ray release that qualifies, sadly.

    I wish Blue Underground would upgrade that Mondo boxed set.

    Does Bill even own the rights to the Jacopetti and Prosperi movies anymore?

    Alex's suggestion of Severin's KILLING OF AMERICA release is spot-on. It's an excellent package.

    They're probably tamer than the material you're thinking of, but the BFI released Arnold Louis Miller's MONDO CANE-inspired docs LONDON IN THE RAW and PRIMITIVE LONDON on Blu-ray a few years ago, as part of their Flipside series.

    I'd love to see those hit Blu-ray. I recently unearthed my Blue Underground Jacopetti/Prosperi boxed set when digging out some old DVDs and considered rewatching the whole shebang. That was an excellent release.

    Those would definitely qualify, I'd forgotten about them. Nice releases from the BFI with some great extras. And yes, tamer than the Mondo Cane stuff but still worthwhile for anyone with an interest in the genre.

    Anyone seen the "Most Disturbed Person On Planet Earth" series?

    There are now 3 of them. The 2nd one has 2 versions (one with animal cruelty & one without but includes footage not in the animal cruelty version) & the 3rd one came out sometime this year. Found the 3rd one whilst looking for the first two films. BHasically there's over 9 hours over 3 films.

    I've not seen these and probably won't as I feel I've had my share of at-a-distance carnage thanks to the Internet and news media over the past 15 or 20 years, but I find it dryly funny that the second of the MDPOPE entries reputedly has an animal cruelty-free version but nevertheless, by all reports, includes the murder-by-hammer filmed by the 'Dnepropetrovsk Maniacs' a few years back. I'd have thought that if a viewer could stomach that, they could stomach footage of dogs being slaughtered in China, etc. I mean, I find it hard to believe that a viewer of one would be offended by the other.

    The first one does include footage from the infamous "Anal Birth of Bert" & the series does have a lot of pixilated Japanese stuff in including footage from "Terrible Meal" amongs others.
