Fango spoke recently to the folks over at DVD company Synapse Films, who revealed that in addition to their exciting recent acquisition of a clutch of Hammer titles (see item here), they’re also planning new follow-ups to a couple of their popular collection discs. Synapse also has a boxed set on the way that’s sure to delight fans of German gore!
The biggest news is that Synapse has the long-awaited follow-up to SMALL GAUGE TRAUMA in the works. The first disc, released in 2006, assembled a batch of the best short fright flicks seen in the same-titled showcase at Montreal’s annual Fantasia genre festival, and SMALL GAUGE TRAUMA 2 (tentatively set to debut coinciding with Fantasia’s 2011 event next July) will offer a bunch more short-form shockers, hopefully with the same kinds of extensive extras seen in the previous edition.
The Synapse boys also gave us the scoop that as part of their ongoing 42ND STREET FOREVER series of trailer compilations, they’re collaborating once again with the gang from Austin, TX’s Alamo Drafthouse, with whom they teamed on last year’s 42ND STREET FOREVER VOLUME 5. And Synapse is still forging ahead with its first 42ND STREET Blu-ray, an assemblage of highlights from the first two DVDs in the franchise, plus new trailers and a fresh audio commentary as well.
Finally, the company is planning to squeeze out THE VIOLENT SHIT COLLECTION, a boxed set of splatterfests by Germany’s Andreas Schnaas. The package will include 1989’s VIOLENT SHIT, 1992’s VIOLENT SHIT II and 1999’s VIOLENT SHIT 3—INFANTRY OF DOOM, along with 1991’s ZOMBIE ’90: EXTREME PESTILENCE. Look for more info on all of these titles as Fango gets it!
