After last week’s fiasco that pretty much put a dent in my bank account, it’s nice to have a little breather… unless of course you buy that crap Brain Damage puts out. This week they unlod a handful of DVDs as Classic Media drops a few more Godzilla films. But the gem of the week is Anchor Bay’s The Mario Bava Collection, which features: Black Sunday, Black Sabbath, The Girl Who Knew Too Much, Kill Baby Kill and Knives of the Avenger. Read on for the full release list.
