Certainly not bad movies (except maybe in their AIP edits), but certainly of interest to gothic horror fans, Anchor Bay US is releasing a collection of Mario Bava's classic films in a boxset in April - including:

Black Sunday (1960)
Girl Who Knew too Much (1962)
Black Sabbath (1963)
Kill, Baby, Kill (1966)
Knives of the Avenger (1966)

And as a plus, the first three films will include both the original Italian versions, and the heavily re-edited AIP American versions, with different soundtracks and English dubbing (hear Karloff's original voice). There is also a selection of Tim Lucas commentaries and special features. The only thing missing is an Italian track for 'Black Sunday'.
More details on my upcoming page.

Anchor Bay are also releasing a separate release of Bava's "lost" film "Rabid Dogs", including the new "Kidnapped" edit of the film from Lamberto Bava, featuring new footage and soundtrack with a feature and audio commentary.

Update: The AIP/US theatrical versions of the films will not be included in the boxset.

Rather sad as, although not as good as the Italian cuts, they do have very different footage and editing, and would have been very interesting to see.

They should've made them each 2 disc sets with the original cut of the movies and the US cuts.

but this is still awesome, awesome news nonetheless.

I still need to get Twitch of the Death Nerve on DVD.

I'd definitely love to pick this up but I am disappointed the American cuts will no longer be included.

THE GIRL WHO KNEW TOO MUCH is an awesome film--proto-giallo.  It's also shown from time to time in the US under the title THE EVIL EYE.
