Not sure what Arrow has access to and whether this can be used as any indication but other Masumura titles that have blu-rays in Japan (based on blu-ray.com):

For My Daughter's 7th Birthday
Nakano Spy School
Lullaby of the Earth
Double Suicide of Sonezaki

Since we don't have threads for the January titles yet, I'll ask here: how is Shock regarded by other forum members?

It’s not quite top-tier Bava, but it’s very effective as an atmospheric meditation on grief, mental illness, and repressed memory with a couple of truly great scares (earned scares, not cheap jump scares)—scenes that are among the best of Bava’s career. It’s beautifully filmed, as you would expect from Bava, and Nicolodi is as good as you typically expect her to be. I’ve seen it multiple times and don’t recall much “story” there, but that is also typical of Bava. Definitely worth owning, especially if you enjoy the more Gothic Bava films (Kill, Baby…Kill; Baron Blood; Lisa and the Devil), but it’s unique among those works as it’s in a totally contemporary setting.

Thank you, Matt! I do love Kill Baby Kill and Black Sabbath (not seen Baron Blood and Lisa and the Devil yet).

Perhaps Friedkin’s Cruising to UHD? Something like a three-disc edition as planned earlier in the year sword and shield.

Cruising's restoration already quickly shows its limits on BD, I don't think it'd be a good idea to release it on UHD.

And I doubt if the deal with WB included UHD rights.

New announcements on Friday. Can the Chabrolsters on here confirm if it is from L'Enfer?

Well, so we're probably going to get a Chabrol set with titles already issued by Cohen or Kino

Considering how things have many times worked in the other way around, could it be basically is an English-friendly version of the Carlotta set, ie L'enfer, La cérémonie, Rien ne va plus, Merci pour le chocolat & La fleur du mal ?t

Putting La cérémonie back in print alone would justify it.

Artificial Eye’s La ceremonie Blu has been OOP for a while, and Fleur is presumably still licensed to Arrow from their DVD set

Excited for l’Enfer, the only Chabrol I’ve seen.

Chabrol aside,Arrow speculation seems at its all time low, even on Blu-raydotcom’s forum.

I’m wondering if there’ll be more than a little overlap with Severin coming up?

I believe Don’t Go in the House has been teased out,already?

Also some believe there’ll be a second Larraz Box - could that include Black Candles? A recent Severin announcement.

Maybe wishful thinking, but Severin updated House on the Edge of the Park from region free, to region A locked… ? Are Arrow likely to be involved?

you just reminded me there's an arrow edition coming which I'll just wait for. Sev is bound the fuck up their release somehow

I assume it's because most are focused on Black Friday sales

I’d love an Arrow edition of House on the Edge of the Park. Are there any issues, censorship-wise, preventing the film being released in the U.K.? (I’m unfamiliar with its video history over here).

Looking forward, can’t wait for Arrow’s 2022 slate. Especially if the HELLRAISER films get upgraded to 4k.

Hoping for more spaghetti westerns, as I was impressed by their presentation of the skilfully assembled and undervalued Massacre Time (a film I feel has considerably more finesse than Django, which I also love). especially more by Fulci (4 of the Apocalypse for example). Would be blown away if they could get the Martino Mannaja - a Man Called Blade.

February's releases have leaked on Baseorg, though I'm presuming that this doesn't have all of the titles: Lies and Deceit - Five Films By Claude Chabrol, Don't Go in the House, and Deadly Games.

As much I've been dying for Chabrol it sounds like it's gonna have to include a lot of great new special features for me to import this.

Edit: Unless it's identical to the Carlotta set, the I'd instantly buy. I just don't want the two Inspecteur Lavardin films included in any of these sets.

Honestly that is an awful selection. I love Chabrol but I can't justify buying this.
