The new SAMSON AND THE 7 MIRACLES OF THE WORLD Blu-ray from Kino Lorber is set to be released on August 16. I got an email from Amazon.com and I’m confused. August 31 to September 5? Wha? Anyway, hopefully, it’s a mistake. This is not the first time Amazon’s automatic emails were incorrect. Well, let’s hope so…
The only major non-italian PEPLUM Blu-ray release is the double disk of THE TEN COMMANDMENTS, the 1923 and 1956 versions. It’s a good idea but nothing earth-shattering.
Aside from titles that are scheduled to be released but have yet to see the light of day, such as the Blu-ray of GOLIATH & THE VAMPIRES (1961), titled SAMSON & THE VAMPIRES for the release, there’s no major European titles in the foreseeable future. Oh well…
Many might wonder what exactly is the intent of this website/blog.
I’m still in the process of its creation and I don’t want to jinx it so I’ll announce it soon enough, once it’s completed or near completion.
Thanks for your interest.
That’s Steve Reeves on the magazine cover I recently acquired. In the magazine, they mistakenly identify it as HERCULES & THE QUEEN OF LYDIA when it’s actually from THE LAST DAYS OF POMPEII (1959). Always some Cinematic Confusion going on. Aside from that mistake, it’s a pretty decent magazine with a good number of articles on PEPLUM movies.
