    Blue Underground's TWO EVIL EYES Blu-ray & DVDs are going OOP

    From BU's Facebook page:
    Our license for TWO EVIL EYES has expired, so the Blu-ray & DVDs will be going out-of-print. Our distributor still has some stock left, so if you've been meaning to pick this one up we suggest you do so now.

    The BD is already out of stock at Amazon, but third-party sellers still have it for reasonable prices.

    Looks like this is getting reissued by Scorpion soon? Their FB page banner is an image from this poster as of yesterday.

    SURPRISE ANNOUNCEMENT... ANOTHER ITALIAN RELEASE AS ARGENTO COMES TO 88 ON SEPT 24TH!

    It was the team-up of the century in 1990 when the Italian auteur of excess Dario Argento made this double-feature compendium creeper with DAWN OF THE DEAD helmer George Romero! The result brings together the very best of the United States independent sector with the kingpin of things giallo - giving us the much-loved splatter shocker TWO EVIL EYES! The latest in 88 Films Italian line, Romero's outstanding opening salvo offers us an adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe's "The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar", highlighting the sublime Scream Queen Adrienne Barbeau (THE FOG/ SWAMP THING) as a scheming widow seeking to exploit the estate of her terminally ill husband. Little does she know, however, that her husband is already ahead of the curve... and planning a little ghoulish vengeance of his own! For Dario Argento's Poe adaptation "The Black Cat", Harvey Keitel (RESERVOIR DOGS/ TAXI DRIVER) essays an eccentric photographer obsessed with death and dismay... although eventually his livelihood encourages him to embark on the ultimate crime. However, there is a super-sick sting in the tale that will leave the hapless camera-man literally hollowed-out from head to toe! We dare you to endure the gruesome and gruelling special effects of Tom Savini (DAY OF THE DEAD) and the provocative, spine-tingling soundtrack of Pino Donaggio (BODY DOUBLE) in this awe-inspiring frightener that is finally available to UK horror buffs in hair-raising HD...!!!

    Blue Underground tweeted out this short interview with Lustig and towards the end they ask if he can announce any upcoming titles and he says:
    BILL: Lucio Fulci’s NEW YORK RIPPER and George A. Romero/Dario Argento’s TWO EVIL EYES, both 4K restorations.
    I guess Scorpion is no longer releasing Two Evil Eyes?

    EDITED TO ADD:
    Re:Two Evil Eyes, Walt told me over at the Blu-ray.com forums
    we licensed the film from another label. their rights expired before we could get the film elements to do a new transfer.

    lol I bet the other label is code red. banana man is just too incapable to handle bigger titles and get them out in time.
