Django Released on Blu-ray


Blue Underground has recently released Sergio Corbucci's Django on Blu-ray and this classic spaghetti Western has never looked better. I enjoyed re-watching this film and discovering tons of small details that I had never seen before plus the added bonus of hearing Franco Nero's un-dubbed voice. Nero was in his early twenties during the film and you can see the tiny make-up lines they added around his eyes to give him the look of a weather-worn gunslinger.


Dario Argento at Monster Mania


This last weekend at Monster Mania, I was lucky enough to met Dario Argento and get some posters signed. He was incredibly friendly and was well worth a little waiting in line. Pictures of the items he signed are after the jump.


Barbara Steele

This year at Texas Frightmare Weekend one of the guests was Barbara Steele, the iconic lead actress in Mario Bava's Black Sunday. She was extremely nice and personable. We chatted for a bit and she signed an original Black Sunday lobby card I brought, as well as a this other picture that I purchased.

One of the actors (don't want to spoil it but he was such an odd choice!!!) was named "Ed Fenech". Looks like Tarantino is an Edwige fan (or just a male) but it's great to see some appreciation.
