Door into DVD
Source: DVD Maniacs
After a fairly lengthy period of inactivity, NoShame Films’ US wing is getting up and running again, starting with the February 26th 2008 release of Dario Argento’s 1973 television series Door into Darkness.
Bizarre cover art aside, this is very good news. The series was released in Italy by NoShame earlier this year, but it lacked English subtitles, and I have yet to come across any reviews of its image quality. Currently, the only English-friendly release was a 2-disc set by German company Dragon Entertainment, which, despite having very iffy image quality (see my review for more information), is now something of a collector’s item. Assuming NoShame have access to better quality materials, this new edition should be a must-buy.

I already have the Dragon release which is very nice.
I doubt the quality will be a big improvement.
I just hope NoShame will release other stuff they already released in Italy.There's some good stuff out there.

I kind of like the cover, reminds me of EC Comics.

"reminds me of EC Comics."
What an insult to all those fine artists like Jack Davis, Graham Ingels, Al Feldstein, Jack Kamen, Joe Orlando, Frank Frazetta, Al Williamson, Wally Wood, George Evans, Reed Crandall, Johnny Craig, Harvey Kurtzman & Bernie Krigstein.
Anyone of them (that's still with us) can draw better in their sleep that that awful cover.
