Flænset re-released on DVD in July

It seems there's a chance the old Danish splatter movie FLÆNSET (aka Shredded, 2000) is going to get a DVD re-release in July. At least it's listed on the Danish video store Laserdisken's webpage. I've never been able to find the original DVD version (and for some reason I just never got around to picking up the VHS when it was available!). The movie is directed Heini Grünbaum and it totally bombed when it came out originally and the director was never allowed to make another movie! However, it goes without saying that ordinary (lame!) film goers don't appreciate gory flicks and word is this is actually pretty good. Needless to say, I'm crossing my fingers this release is gonna happen. For a long interview with the director (in English) go here.

Thanks to Magnus for the tip.
