They totally spoiled the plot of Mozambique with that Movie Scene quote! Now I'm not going to be surprised at what happens! [-(

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.

Must be hard to find the original Poster for The Girl From Rio as they are using the previous dvd cover opposed to the poster.

Here's what looks to be a theatrical poster from the time. And an interesting selection of posters at the top of this Russian language page on the film.

That looks to be an interesting double bill as The Girl From Rio was producer Harry Alan Towers' follow up to The Million Eyes of Su Maru with its alternative title in Germany The Seven Men of Sumuru or in Italy it was Sumuru - Queen of Women! (Sumuru is apparently another Fu Manchu-like character from Sax Rohmer and Harry Alan Towers also apparently had a hand in the screenplays for these two films too). Had The Million Eyes of Su Maru been released on DVD or Blu before this?

The original poster art for GIRL FROM RIO is really great and was used on the UK DVD:

What I meant to say was that the movie will make its home video debut here in America.

We promised a new title announcement this week, so here it is: We're excited to bring Gary Sherman's DEATH LINE (aka RAW MEAT) to Blu-ray for the first time anywhere in the world! We're doing a new 2K restoration from the original uncut British negative, supervised by Sherman. The Blu-ray will be loaded with new interviews, audio commentary, and more. Includes reversible sleeve with DEATH LINE artwork (front) and classic RAW MEAT theatrical art (reverse). We're shooting for an early 2017 release. Until then, mind the doors...

Do they really think they'll sell more copies with that boring Death Line cover on the front?

At first, I actually didn't realised it was a cover and an alternative and genuinely believed this was 2 different movies getting released (before realising there might not be that many movies starring both Pleasance and Lee and getting released on BD at the same time by the same company).

I really need to stop buying old genre films from MGM etc. Seems almost a certainty they'll all come out on BD at some stage...
They've essentially just used the MGM DVD artwork:
