The Knights Templar ride again in high definition, and their first stop is a popular horror convention.

At the Cinema Wasteland con this weekend in Strongsville, OH, Synapse Films will be selling a limited number of prerelease copies of its Steelbook Blu-ray release of Amando de Ossorio’s 1971 classic TOMBS OF THE BLIND DEAD. The saga of the long-dead, sightless Knights rising from the grave to terrorize a group of vacationers has been restored from the original uncut camera negative for this three-disc set. This limited-edition (4,000 units) package features Steelbook art by Wes Benscoter and a slipcover bearing the original theatrical poster, plus a booklet with liner notes by film historian/home video columnist Patrick McCabe. The full contents are:

Looks great, but I must watch the film first. These old Spanish/Italian gore zombie flicks tend to be kinda boring, despite the great gore effects and atmosphere.

Love the look of these templar knights :cigar:

hi all, I'm working on sourcing these for you and it would really help to know how many people are interested in having me purchase on their behalf and forwarding along with other items that you've requested from group buys.

if you'd be so kind as to "like" this post, so I can get a rough idea of how many people would like one. As always, I'm sourcing these at cost but won't know more until we have an idea of how many copies we need.

Which Synapse steelbook has ever been released by Arrow before?

What do you mean ? Arrow and Synapse have released same titles as steelbooks before. And it's not the point that this is Synapse steel. UK IMO has no distributor atm, so Arrow might get them. There's rumour ...
