Upcoming titles from Mya, Mr. Bongo, and Facets

Mya Communications returns with some new and old naughty Italian sexploitation gems, plus a few shockers.

Coming out June 30th is Edwige Fenech's 1972 film Ubalda: All Naked and Warm / Quel gran pezzo dell'Ubalda tutta nuda e tutta calda (reissued from the old NoShame catalogue), Gloria Guida's screen debut in Monika / La ragazzina (1974), Joe D'Amato's Horrible / aka Absurd / Rosso sangue (1981), and Sergio Martino's Island of the Fishermen / L'isola degli uomini pesce (1979), which was originally released in North America as the edited/reshot Screamers, but did enjoy an uncut release in Europe as a Region 2 DVD via NoShame.

July 28th brings Arizona Colt Returns / Arizona si scatenò... e li fece fuori tutti (1970), Sergio Martino's sequel to Arizona Colt (1966), and the 1986 film Devil in the Flesh (another reissued NoShame title).

On August 25th the label will release Lamberto Bava's TV movie Dinner with a Vampire / Brivido giallo - A cena col vampiro (1988), Pilar Velázquez in Italian Sex / Sesso in testa (1974), and Florinda Bolkan and Antonio Sabato in Mafia Connection / aka Black Lemons / E venne il giorno dei limoni neri (1970).

Also listed at a Mya blog are a pair of September titles: Lamberto Bava's 1987 film Until Death / Fino alla morte (released by NoShame as a Region 2 DVD), the efficiently titled Naked and Violent / America cosi nuda, cosi violenta (1970), and Lucifera: Demon Lover / L'Amante del demonio (1972).

And lastly of note is the Mr. Bongo Films re-release of The Saragossa Manuscript, previously available from Image Entertainment in 2001. The new DVD reportedly includes a stills gallery, but lacks extras that remain unique to the out of print Image DVD - an isolated music score, and extensive liner notes by Darren Gross. Mr. Bongo Films is a UK-based label and distributor that also carries additional art house titles, and Saragossa seems to be the first that's being handled in North American by Facets Multimedia.
