British distributors Eureka Entertainment have officially announced and detailed their upcoming Blu-ray release of F. W. Murnau's legendary silent cinema horror classic Nosferatu (1922), expertly restored in Germany by the world-renowned Friedrich-Wilhelm-Murnau-Stiftung (FWMS). The release will be available for purchase on November 18th.
In addition to the standard Blu-ray release, Eureka Entertainment will also have available for purchase a Limited SteelBook Edition.
An iconic film of the German expressionist cinema, and one of the most famous of all silent movies, F. W. Murnau's Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror continues to haunt — and, indeed, terrify — modern audiences with the unshakable power of its images. By teasing a host of occult atmospherics out of dilapidated set-pieces and innocuous real-world locations alike, Murnau captured on celluloid the deeply-rooted elements of a waking nightmare, and launched the signature "Murnau-style" that would change cinema history forever.
In this first-ever screen adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula, a simple real-estate transaction leads an intrepid businessman deep into the superstitious heart of Transylvania. There he encounters the otherworldly Count Orlok — portrayed by the legendary Max Schreck, in a performance the very backstory of which has spawned its own mythology — who soon after embarks upon a cross-continental voyage to take up residence in a distant new land… and establish his ambiguous dominion. As to whether the count's campaign against the plague-wracked populace erupts from satanic decree, erotic compulsion, or the simple impulse of survival — that remains, perhaps, the greatest mystery of all in this film that's like a blackout…
Remade by Werner Herzog in 1979 (and inspiring films as diverse as Abel Ferrara's King of New York and The Addiction, and E. Elias Merhige's Shadow of the Vampire), F. W. Murnau's surreal 1922 cine-fable remains the original and landmark entry in the entire global tradition of "the horror film".

Dixon Smith and critic Brad Stevens •The Language of Shadows, a 53-minute documentary on Murnau's early years and the filming of Nosferatu •New video interview with BFI Film Classics Nosferatu author Kevin Jackson •Newly translated English subtitles with original German intertitles •More surprises to be revealed closer to release date! •PLUS: a 56-page booklet featuring writings and rare imagery

Anyone have any idea whether the Blu-Ray of A TIME TO LOVE AND A TIME TO DIE will be released on Blu-Ray on Region 1, or All-Region, so that we over here can have an opportunity to get it?
Rozsa's score was originally released on lp, then later on a Japanese lp, then later on a Japanese CD, then, I think, Disques Cinemusique, available ton SAE, released it.
Beautiful score, gorgeous love theme, and stirring action cues, as only Rozsa can write them!
The film is also quite moving, with Gavin, and especially Lilo Pulver, delivering creditable performances. The novel's author, also author of the original ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT, Erich Maria Remarque, also appears, as Gavin's former school professor.
And don't forget to look for Klaus Kinski in a chilling little role in a Gestapo office....
British distributors Eureka Entertainment have officially announced that they will release on Blu-ray Federico Fellini's Roma (1972), starring Britta Barnes, Peter Gonzales Falcon, Fiona Florence, Renato Giovannoli, Elisa Mainardi, and Anna Magnani. The release will be available for purchase on February 17th.
One of the maestro Federico Fellini's greatest '70s works (between Satyricon and The Clowns and Amarcord), Roma [Rome] erupts volcanically as a state-of-the-world pronouncement on what was not only happening within Rome at the tide of the hippies' organic birth and the post-Boom-set that made up his characters of the 1960s films, but also where, and how, his city would move feverishly forward into one of potential futures.
As Fellini himself travels with his crew to document the ring-road circling Rome, with all the natural diversions that might inherently divert a traditional film shoot, we move into episodes that chart the wartime difficulties of Roman life across those fleeting times that chronicle love and life within the modern-day Rome-time, themselves pitted against the archaeological vestiges of the great city, — and the Catholic church rears its dominance, and we come into a midpoint that positions itself, indeed, between the memory-cinema of Satyricon and Amarcord.
One of the great and bountiful color-spectacles of Fellini's cinema, almost leapt off toward from the moment of Giulietta of the Spirits, Fellini's Roma remains a passionate testament both to the city that finally claimed him as its son after he left small Rimini, and to the final stage of cinema that he himself would work till the day he died.
Special Features: •Gorgeous restored 1080p HD transfer of the film •Outtakes from the film •More to be announced closer to the release date •36-PAGE BOOKLET featuring the words of Fellini, and more!
