Dementia 13, Poor Pretty Eddie Blu-ray Announced

Posted March 22, 2011 02:44 AM by Juan Calonge

Virgil FilmsFilm Chest and Virgil Films & Entertainment have announced two deep-catalog movies for Blu-ray release on April 26: Dementia 13 and Poor Pretty Eddie. Both will be presented in BD/DVD combo packs, restored "from original 35mm elements." List price has been set at $15.99 for Dementia 13 and $19.99 for Poor Pretty Eddie.

Dementia 13

Considered Coppola's first mainstream, "legitimate" directorial effort, this gothic psychological thriller – based on a story idea producer Roger Corman penned in one night – was shot for a budget of $42,000.

The majority of the American actors were college pals of Coppola, many of whom paid their own way to Ireland for the opportunity to appear in a film. Although Coppola promised "lots of sex and violence," Corman later battled with Coppola and hired director Jack Hill to shoot additional scenes of carnage. For years, it was rumored that the film's print had mysteriously disappeared.

Special features include:
  • Before-and-after film restoration demo
  • Trailer
Poor Pretty Eddie

A gem of "hicksploitation" cinema –horror films exploiting stereotypical depictions of backwood Whites of the rural American south – Poor Pretty Eddieboth relishes and ravishes the genre and is sure to appeal to aficionados of '70s, grindhouse celluloid.

Special features include:
  • Commentary with cinematographer David Worth and cult film historian Joe Rubin
  • Before-and-after film restoration demo
  • Trailer

Awesome on Dementia 13. Some of that movie was made in my old village.

I'm pretty sure this was announced a long time ago. In fact, I already pre-ordered Dementia 13 from it showing up in the 'deal' tool bar on bluray.com a few weeks back haha.

isn't this the same company that did "The Stranger"?
if it is I don't know why anyone would be excited.
it will most likely be a wretched release.

The source for PPE is pretty good from what I hear, but I think I read somewhere that the film underwent a "digital restoration" Considering the past releases from this company, they probably DNR'd the thing to death.
