Yep…. just when you think that there aren’t any new DVD’s out there on the horizon that have to go on your “Absolutely Must Have” List, along comes news like this.
It seems Mondo Macabro finally managed to find a print of “Veerana” to work with!! According to postings on their Blog, coming out soon from them is their “Bollywood Horror Collection Vol. 2” featuring both the classic, “Veerana”, as well as the haunted house horror fest “Purani Haveli”… This disc had been promised once before, but then Mondo changed their minds after being unable to locate a suitable print of the complete film to do a decent restoration of.
Having finally located a Hindi copy with subtitles, I understood why. I had really been disappointed that Mondo wasn’t releasing theirs as I just knew it would be the definitive version to collect. Bummer….
But, just when all seems lost, it seems we get a second chance for goofy Bolly-Horror goodness! This one has finally been confirmed from Mondo’s Blog itself as having a Street date of March 31st. YAY!!!
This alone would be enough to have your favorite Catgirl Princess doing her patented “Happy Kitten Dance of Joy”, but wait…. there’s more!!
“Bollywood Horror Collection Vol. 3” was announced at the same time, with a Street Date of May 8th… and will feature the combo of “Mahakaal” and “Tahkhana”, even more silly Hindi horror to delight and amuse!!
All I can say is…. “Thank you, thank you, thank you Mondo Macabro, and keep up the good work!!”
You can be certain that when it comes out, I’ll dust off my old review, and see how the new disc compares…. I can hardly wait!
