BCI is also going high definition

Slating four titles for release in August, BCI has just entered the high definition ring by showing their support for the HD-DVD format, though Blu-Ray versions will also be made available at a later time, presumably after the format’s launch.

That’s the Way of the World is one of the titles, featuring the world-famous “Earth, Wind & Fire” and Harvey Keitel in a movie explores the politics that surround the recording industry and a producer trying to fight the system.

Galaxina is a sci-fi/comedy spoof featuring the late Playboy Playmate Dorothy Stratton that is part of the line-up as well as Paul Naschy’s Night of the Werewolf in which an evil witch brings back to life the infamous Elizabeth Bathory, who was executed several hundred years earlier for murdering young women and bathing in their blood. Also coming in high definition is Paul Naschy’s Vengeance of the Zombies about an Indian mystic using magical chants to raise women from the dead and send them out to perform revenge killings.

BCI has additional titles slated for release throughout 2006, including “Son of Paleface” and “The Lemon Drop Kid” and about 20 other films. All titles will be available for $24.99, though no exact details about special features or technical specs about the feature film presentations have been made available at this point.
