Anchor Bay unveils its release plans for the next 12 months

Anchor Bay Entertainment just unveiled a large number of titles they have
loosely scheduled for release within the next 12 months. Many of these titles
have been listed here before, but new ones just came up, so let’s go over some
of the highlights – and please keep in mind that most of these titles will come in brand-new 16×9 enhanced widescreen transfers in their uncut versions!

The spaghetti westerns Django and Django Strikes Again have been assigned a release date and are now scheduled for November 23 as a double-feature. The same is true for Werner Herzog’s Even Dwarfs Started Small, which will contain a commentary track by Werner Herzog and the film’s star Crispin Glover. As you certainly know, Anchor Bay is also preparing other films of this legendary German director for release on DVD and the tentative schedule lists Aguirre: The Wrath of God for release in April 2000, Kaspar Hauser and Woyzeck for release in June 2000, and his biographic documentary Kinski: My Best Fiend in July 2000.

Dario Argento fans are eagerly awaiting the many titles we have mentioned here before and finally rough dates are available. Expect Profondo Rosso (a.k.a. Deep Red) and Inferno with a commentray track by Dario Argento in February 2000, The Church and Opera are scheduled for May 2000. Mario Bava’s Shock will see the light of day in March 2000, as well as Autopsyand Torso.

The Hammer Collection will get some additions in July 2000 in the form of The Devil Rides Out, The Mummy’s Shroud, Frankenstein Created Woman and Quatermass 2.

Before the list gets too long, here’s yet another interesting release, loosely scheduled for August 2000 – Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers.

Anchor Bay has just added these and many other titles to their release schedules, which can be found on their website. If you want to see all the titels that are currently planned for release, it is definitely worth a visit.
