For today's news post I will be starting to cover all the backlogged news sitting in my inbox from September and October of last year, a time where bizarrely it was golden, at least compared to the horrors of the present time!
On October 1st Deranged Foxhole Deduction became available on Troma Now. In this bizarre short film, a man kills his roommate and a few others before a detective arrives to investigate. In my review of Deranged Foxhole (which was one part of the whole film) I was first introduced to Nicholas M. Garofolo who really made an impression. Also added will/has been another short film in a similar vein, the surreal Twenty Twenty.
October 26th saw the release of Dario Argento's classic Deep Red on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, said to be one of the most iconic Italian films ever created. This includes both the 127 minute original Italian version, as well as the 105 minute export version. This release comes with a collector's booklet, double-sided foldout poster, six lobby cards and more.
He Came from the Swamp: The William Grefe Collection also released on October 26th. This 4 disc-set includes seven different films from the director, all restored using the remaining film elements.
