This week brings news of upcoming DVDs by the two companies which most tickle our Worldweird fancy.
Firstly over at their own blog, Mondo Macabro have announced a new DVD coming out "sometime later this year". It's a movie we've never heard of before called BORN OF FIRE, an English surrealist/fantasy film directed by a Pakistani gentleman named Jamil Dehlavi. They compare it to the early films of Alejandro Jodorowsky which is one surefire way to grab our attention! The movie would seem to be, according to an IMDB reviewer, a "beautifully filmed surrealist journey into Arabic mythology", another refers to it as "the first Islamic horror movie". Well, sign us up, that sounds delicious. When more info on this release becomes available we'll let you know.
In other DVD label blog news, our endlessly suffering but ever vigilant pal Bill from Onar Films has announced that all the hassles that may have prevented him from releasing two ALTIN COCUK movies as well as the delirious looking early 60s fantasy film CICI CAN have been ironed out and they are all forthcoming! The latter especially has us intrigued if the amazing trailer Bill posted long ago is any indication of it interest. Said trailer is posted again below for those who might have forgotten its brilliance. But when will these highly anticipated discs make their debut? As ever when we know more so shall you!
