Severin wants to sex you up!!*UPDATED!*
Severin Films have laid down their awesome schedule for the remainder of 2007, and God-damn if it ain't a scorcher!
You already know about MALABIMBA and SATAN'S BABY DOLL right? (If not scroll down a couple of weeks to check out the full story). Two sexy satanic shockers unleashed on September 25th. These are must buys, but it's only the tip of of the berg!
Dig this crazy news bulletin issued straight out of the gut of the Severin website a couple of days ago:
At last! Lucio Fulci's masterpiece The Psychic (aka Sette note in nero / Murder to the Tune of the Seven Black Notes) will hit DVD this fall. Along with a 16x9 transfer of the uncut version of this long out-of-print film, the DVD will include a never-before-published interview with Fulci as well as interviews with cast and crew. This seminal release will street on October 30th along with the official DVD premiere of the uncut version of Fulci's acclaimed sex comedy The Eroticist (which will also contain a Fulci interview and cast/crew featurette).
Covers unt Specs!(from the Fangoria website):
Special Features for THE PSYCHIC:
• Fulci Talks—The Movies, a never-before-released audio interview with the director accompanied by images from his films
• Voices from the Black, containing new interviews with screenwriter Dardano Sacchetti, costume designer Massimo Lentini and editor Bruno Micheli
Special Features for THE EROTICIST:

A-HA! More Fulci cinemadness! Just what the world needs now, I'd wager! Fulci is our fave Italian director and more of his 60s and 70s films on DVD is just what we wanted for Christmas (and it's arriving on Halloween!)
