Charge forth for cover art and details!

  1. Yay! Anna Moffo! She was a striking beauty, and had quite a set of pipes in her prime:

    She reminds me of Edwige Fenech, with the added bonus of a coloratura soprano voice. Moffo’s voice began to decline in the early seventies, but, for reasons best understood by herself, continued to perform even into her final decade:

    There is something extremely appealing about idea of Anna Moffo starring in a giallo. I wonder if she sings in it?

  2. Haha Night of the Dribbler, I’d forgotten all about that movie. Wonder if they’ll release Snuff as well…

    I have some Code Red Coverage on my site and feel free to comment on what I didn’t cover or read my other articles.

    Weekend Murders, has a great cover but I haven’t heard much about it before. Can anyone tell me if its any good? I have never been able to get into Giallos. Power Play! was also announced for July also. This is awesome news.

  4. Can not wait till Night of the Dribbler comes out. Code Red is awesome

  5. I have been following this blog for a while and think your very accurate with the information, do you have any other blogs I can follow or ones you recommend. I really enjoyed reading this.

  7. I’ve been a big supporter of Code Red in the past (I own Don’t Go In The Woods, The Dead Pit, and Beyond the Door), but I just can’t support them any longer.

    They’ve been promising a whole stack of forgotten gems and then fall completely silent about them, releasing CRAP (yes, it’s crap, don’t even bother defending it) like “Night of the Dribbler”.

    Last year they claimed that their release of “Nightmare” was being delayed due to their not being able to find a satisfactory print (understandable). Then the excuse was that everything was completed, but they needed to find someone who could translate Scavolini’s interview from Italian to English (not understandable at all. I know several people who speak Italian. They’re not hard to find.)

    And now there’s been a year of total silence. They refuse to answer any queries about it. Why? If there IS a problem with the release, it would be more respectful to their customers to simply inform them of the problem. Silence is nothing more than a big middle finger to those that have been very supportive of them.

    Sure, I’ll buy Nightmare if and when it ever comes out (though at this point, it doesn’t seem likely), but I pretty much wash my hands of them. I was even willing to pick up a few of their more obscure releases just to support them. Not happening till we get some answers.
