    Been a long time since I've watched this one. I held off the German release as TF said they were putting this out. I wonder if Severin will also get it considering David Gregory's lifelong mission to get every nasty out there again?

      They posted this on their FB page earlier today, so maybe some news is imminent?

        This film has a very interesting history. I only watched it for the first time about 2 months ago when I grabbed a German Mediabook but the film has always been in the back of my mind ever since I first saw the Anchor Bay DVD more than 20 years ago. I could never get ahold of a copy. Anyway, I discovered a connection between the film and Fatal Games, the 1984 slasher released last year by Vinegar Syndrome: Frank Agrama (Director of DotM) Executive Produced Fatal Games (or was involved with it in some high capacity) and Shuki Levy, of all people, scored both films. Because of this connection I'm fairly confident we'll see a US release of Dawn of the Mummy at some point this year or next - it's just a matter of deciding which release to pick up. Treasured Films is a new kid on the block and doesn't yet have a reputation but Severin does. I usually buy the first edition out of the gate; here, however, I might just wait for the US counterpart. Maybe Severin will announce it next month during their Summer event.

        It's an OK film...far from a masterpiece but still enjoyable. It feels like a typical Italo-trash Z grade horror movie but it was made by a Los Angeles-based production company with American crew (mostly). I'm generally happy with the Mediabook. Double dipping will depend on the specs and artwork. I still feel like a US announcement is imminent.

          I don't remember much about this one, I haven't seen it in 20+ years. If I'm right, the mayhem is mostly near the end. Seeing as it was confiscated as part of the nasties scare in the UK, I'd be surprised if David Gregory and Severin haven't picked it up, or has it already been confirmed by them?

            No, no confirmation but I agree it will likely come from Severin. No other US label is doing this stuff. Well, Vinegar Syndrome trickles one out every now and then but that's it.

                Nice extras, will probably pick this up. Their Last Hunter disc was good.

                      The German discs has elevated black levels, so more colour correction work should make this scrub up quite well for something with no pre print elements.

                        I knew the name Frank Agrama as the producer of Robotech. You should read the wiki on him and all of his legal troubles. Frank Agrama - Wikipedia
