Federation, Mediaset, Lucisano Team on Monte Paschi Bank Scandal Series

  • Variety
Italy’s Mediaset and Lucisano Media Group have teamed up with France’s Federation Entertainment on a TV series for the international market titled “Sienna,” centering on a multi-billion-dollar banking scandal that rocked the world oldest bank, Monte dei Paschi di Siena.

The skein, which combines financial thriller and historical saga elements, is a further indication of a shift at Mediaset, Italy’s top commercial network, towards commissioning TV dramas that aspire to travel. The linear broadcaster has recently announced another drama series with international ambitions, “Don Masino,” about Cosa Nostra’s first high-ranking turncoat. The company also pacted with Netflix last week on a slate of Italian movies that the streaming giant will play around the world.

‘Cannibal Holocaust’ Blu-ray Review (Grindhouse Releasing)

  • Nerdly
“I wonder who the real cannibals are…”

There have been many releases of Cannibal Holocaust throughout the years, on various formats, but this release, from Grindhouse Releasing in the United States, is, from what I’ve seen, the best yet, and features 3 discs, here, I’ll be looking at what is on those discs, and reviewing the film.

Now, this isn’t an easy task. Cannibal Holocaust has been spoken about, reviewed and studied by a vast number of people in the last 34 years with great amounts of research done into the making of the film and the events that followed its release. While I might not go into as much detail as some, I will still do my best to give my thoughts on the film and this specific set. This will only be my second time with the film, and the first time I will have seen it in over ten years.

Blu-ray Review – Cannibal Holocaust (Grindhouse Releasing)

This is the release that we’ve been waiting for. Ever since Grindhouse Releasing started putting titles out in the Blu-ray format, there were two titles that they released on DVD that fans just knew would be coming to Blu-ray soon. Those titles would be Cannibal Holocaust, and Pieces. Cannibal Holocaust, probably being the more important release between the two. The day is finally here, and holy hell what a release this is. Even if you’re not a fan of the movie itself, this is such an impressive Blu-ray release that it deserves to be on your shelf regardless. Why can’t all releases be as nice as a Grindhouse Releasing release? For the type of film they release, everything from the content to the packaging is miles beyond almost all of their competitors. Cannibal Holocaust may be one of the most disturbing releases they’ve put to the Blu-ray format,

An anthropologist ventures into the Amazon in search of a missing American documentary film crew and retrieves their footage, which documents the gruesome truth behind the ill-fated expedition.

After premiering at Cine-Excess V this May, director Ruggero Deodato’s newest cut of the notorious ‘video nasty’ Cannibal Holocaust now arrives here in the U.K. on Blu-ray courtesy of Shameless Screen Entertainment, delivering what must surely be the most complete edit of the cult shocker likely to gain approval by the British Board of Film Classification.
