Third Window Films have confirmed the releases of two films by Sogo Ishii will be available for pre-order over on Terracotta starting Friday 20th at £17.99 each (and if you buy both together, one of them will be 10% off). Despite the print run mentioned in the description, the two films will be re-released as a standard edition without FOMO for those concerned about that.

What is limited however, is the first print edition which offers a nice slipcase.

Well those were two very easy pre-orders. Gakuryu Ishii is one of the most thriling and consistently interesting filmmakers of the past 40 years. It's great that his work is finally becoming more widely available

An update on Sion Sono's Suicide Club from Third Window's latest podcast - due to the Sono allegations that made a VOD platform and a bunch of people who were involved with the UK release backed out, combined with the USD value getting worse, the UK release has been cancelled and for now has recommended people import Discotek's upcoming release.

Completely forgot that this was even still to be released, wasn't it due last year??
Makes sense to cancel though, I hadn't even heard about the allegations!!

Not physical media but 'Project Wolf Hunting' has been added to the Icon channel on Prime ahead of its cinema release in March (there's a free 7-day trial 😉)
It's definitely something and I would advise only going into it if you have a VERY strong stomach.
Strong like you watched 'The Sadness' and thought 'that was a bit tame' 😂
