Coming in April 2010

Mya continues on!

Scheduled to street April 27th:

CRIME OF PASSION (DELITTO PASSIONALE, 1994), Serena Grandi, Florinda Bolkan, Fabio Testi. Directed by Flavio Mogherini. The plot summary on the IMDB states: "When Peter's wife, a famous writer, is murdered in a hotel where she spent the night with her lover, the police begin investigating. Peter and his wife didn't get on well and she was thinking of divorcing him. Peter too had a lover, Milena. They had a handicapped daughter... Inspector Ivan Zanova investigates."

SWEET TEEN (FRITTATA ALL'ITALIANA, 1977) directed by Alfonso Brescia, starring Antonio Cassagrande, Dogmar Lassander, Karin Schubert. Looks to be a sex comedy/drama.

WITHOUT TRACE (A TUTTE LE AUTO DELLA POLIZIA, 1975), starring Antonio Sabato, Luciana, Paluzzi, Gabriele Ferzetti, Ettore Manni. Directed by Mario Caiano. An IMDB review by "rundbauchdodo":

"This extremely rare and hardly known film (as far as I know, it was never released outside of Italy) is an interesting mix of a classic crime story and a typical giallo. In the first half of the film, there is only one murder to be solved, but as soon as the police comes closer to the truth, people are killed in usual giallo style, during thrilling and atmospheric intense scenes. This mixture may seem odd (one may ask why the film wasn't made in giallo style right from the beginning), but it works quite well and keeps the tension up until the end. The murder scenes are nasty, and the identity of the killer really a big surprise. The movie has also its tragic moments, but never becomes exaggeratedly melodramatic."

Another reviewer titles his review: "Excellent blending of Giallo and Polizi styles." The film is also known in the U.S. as THE MANIAC RESPONSIBLE.


  1. I wonder if Mya will release "Inhibition" (1976) in Region 1. If memory serves, NoShame released it in R2 but never got around to it in R1. "Inhibition" actually should have a decent cult following in the U.S. thanks to it's frequent Cinemax showings during the 1980s.

  2. Ha! Interesting you mention, INHIBITION, Franklin. I've been recently thinking and hoping the same thing. That film is one of my all-time favorites, with a perfect 1970s' euro-cool vibe and performance by Ivan Rassimov. The De Angelis brothers score is instantly and exquisitely captivating. (Would love to see it released on CD.) If I have time, I'll herald this film on this blog to push its release by Mya.

  3. Hello,

    I just received your DVD of "Sweet Teen". Why do you take VHS tapes and turn them into DVDs? That is nothing but a DVD-R which can obtained anywhere. The quality of Sweet Teen is horrible. Sorry to say. If you are going to release these movies is not worth it to at least find a good master, rather then VHS?
