Nucleus Films sets out restore two cult horror classics

Nucleus Films, one of the UK’s leading cult film labels, has launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to remaster two classic Italian cult movies from the original negatives: Death Laid An Egg aka La morte ha fatto l’uovo (1967) and Lady Frankenstein aka La figlia di Frankenstein (1971). Both films will be remastered from the Italian negatives for the very first time.

The campaign will give fans the chance to finally own definitive 2k restored versions of these highly sought after cult classics as ultimate collectible Blu-ray limited editions.

Those who pledge will receive exclusive collectors’ numbered limited edition slipcases and a ‘thank you’ credit check for supporting the restoration. If you pledge at ANY LEVEL you are guaranteed a Blu-ray copy of Lady Frankenstein. So, the more you pledge the more you get!

Check out all the perks available and the pitch video for the Nucleus Films Euro Cult Cinema Restoration Project, which is now live:

Marc Morris, co-director of Nucleus Films said today: “Nucleus Films have never taken on a project of this scale. The only way to do the definitive releases is to go back to the Italian licensors and do a deal for all the original materials to access the negatives and get them remastered properly. Because we’re a small company we can’t afford to do this without YOUR HELP to raise the money for the licensing, expert remastering, Blu-ray authoring, production of extras, artwork and BBFC classification costs”.

Fellow director Jake West added: “We want to create the ultimate collectors’ editions that you’ll be proud to own. And, if this goes well we plan to unearth many more Euro-Cult titles that we know the fans are desperate for. We want your suggestions for forthcoming titles too, so please get involved with the Euro-Cult Restoration Project. This is just the start!”

Film critic, journalist & broadcaster Kim Newman commented: “Nucleus Films are a company you can trust with your cult movies. They lavish attention on titles that other labels would let languish on the sidelines”

Critic, author and Director of FrightFest Alan Jones said: “It’s criminal that DEATH LAID AN EGG, a genre masterpiece of the highest Italian order, has languished unreleased in its proper, vibrant and glorious form. Every Giallo lover should support the directive taken by these pioneers at Nucleus Films, They will eternally have mine if they continue to do this imperative service for fantasy lovers everywhere”.
