Sazuma's "Italian Genre Cinema Collection"

Sazuma's latest foray into genre territory has seen them announce Sergio Martino's "Morte Sospetta di una Minorenne" (Suspected death of a Minor). Looks pretty interesting and anything of Martino's is always worth a look. Although Sazuma's delivery times for DVD's can be erratic, their DVD releases are always carefully put together, indeed their Limited Edition Tin release of Cannibal Ferox is a favourite of mine, so I'm looking forward to all their future releases.

2.35:1, 16:9 Anamorphic Widescreen
English and Italian Language in Dolby Digital Mono
English, German and Dutch Subtitles
Bonus Features TBA

From Sazuma's Blog:

"Almost a year has passed since our Subconscious Cruelty: Deluxe Edition has been released. But we weren’t lazy in the meantime. We came up with a concept for an entire batch of new titles which will be known as the “Italian Genre Cinema Collection“.
The first film in this series will be the rare and long sought-after 1975 Sergio Martino effort Morte Sospetta di una Minorenne aka Suspected Death of a Minor aka Too Young to Die – the perfect film to kick off a high-quality collection of Italian genre classics as it is a crossover of two of the most popular Italian genres from the 60s/70s, the giallo and the poliziesco.
As all future releases within the collection, Morte Sospetta will be transferred from its original negative into a great-looking 2.35:1 anamorphic DVD-master. Bonus features are still TBA, but we’re trying hard to come up with some interesting extras – not only for the first entry in the collection but all future titles as well.

Best possible quality will be our main objective for the collection. Apart from the perfection in specs and features, we put much thought in the packaging: Each title will arrive in a numbered digipak which will feature the same basic design (see screenshot for an unfinished layout screenshot of the back cover, incomplete with pictures from a different film and temp text) so that the entire collection will look real neat on your shelf. The only difference between the titles will be the original poster artwork on the front and the colored stripes, which are coming in a different shade for each genre: Gialli will be yellow (sure thing), a poliziesco is green, horror red, and erotic titles will be blue."
