Just received this marvellous 4 DVD box via Amazon.de! It is just the best release ever. The only negative thing I can think of is the fact that all extra’s are in german (the movies are italian or german spoken and englisch subtitled). The accompanying book is almost worth the price alone. It is just palin beautiful. I also got in Blindman (Koch media) and the one and only first Sartana…I’m one happy man!!!
So if you do get a bit of German, this box is for you, no matter whether you already have the pics or not.
Koch Media’s home video division (headed by the great Ulrich Bruckner) has released a number of S’Ghettis in the past and is continuing its great wave of spaghetti releases. While their older ones had flawes, the new releases are of great quality and lots of effort put into it with great extras.
Here’s what they’ve put out:
…Und Santana tÃ¶tet sie alle (Lo irritarono… e Santana fece piazza pulita) [FSK 18]
Django - Ich will ihn tot (Lo voglio morto) [FSK 18]
MÃ¶rder des Klans (Prega il morto e ammazza il vivo) [unfortunately not 2.35:1]
Keinen Cent fÃ¼r Ringos Kopf (massacre at grand canyon) by Sergio Corbucci
Sergio Sollima Italowestenr Box (Run Man Run, The Big Gundown, Face to face) [plus hardcover encyclopedia]
Halleluja Italo Western Box [Man nennt mich Halleluja (Testa tâ€˜ammazzo, croce… sei morto… Mi chiamano Alleluja, Italien 1971) Ein Halleluja fÃ¼r Camposanto (Gli fumavano le Colt… lo chiamavano Camposanto, Italien 1971) Sando Kid spricht das letzte Halleluja (Su le mani cadavere! Sei in arresto, Italien 1971)] coming November 11th

I saw at work that the picture I attached apparently doesn’t show up (it shows here at home). So, in case you can’t see it, it’s a screenshot of the DVDs audio options menu screen which features German, Italian and English. The database you link to is incorrect.
yeah that is still one of the best german dvd sites but their information is usually outdated or only from older press releases. i will update the topic “german dvds with english audio or subtitles” as best as i can
Thanks Kitosch and Sebastian - just looked at the cinefacts.de part of Kitosch’s link and then searched for the title - didn’t realise there were problems with the database itself. Excellent news though and am glad to be wrong!
They’re a German company - why should they? Wild East’s disks don’t come with German language and subtitles and the German market is probably one of the biggest. I’m just grateful that Koch manage to get English language rights for some of them.
I’m just wishing out loud…is it that expensive to buy and release an english version (subtitles or audio?) I’m just thinking how much more product Koch would sell when they include an english version…
Well, I guess to just have to wait and see what’s coming…
It’s not the audio or the subs that are expensive. It’s the additional rights that have to be obtained. I’m no insider but my guess for the most expensive language to get the rights for would be English.
