Upcoming US Blu-rays of interest

Some Blu-rays (specifically released in the US) of interest on their way to online stores, for your perusal:
The Red House (April) - an intriguing looking film-noir/chiller from the classic era;
Wizard of Gore/Gore Gore Girls (May) - double bill from Something Weird, following up from their triple bill Herschell Gordon Lewis extravaganza a while back - nice to see them active again;
42nd Street Forever (May) from Synapse;
Murder Obsession (May) - the Riccardo Freda film released by Raro Video;
Killer Nun (April) - from Blue Underground of course;
Mimic (May) boxed set, featuring all three films - I didn't even know there was a third film!
Demoniacs, La Viol Du Vampire, and Requiem for a Vampire (May) proudly presented by Redemption/Kino Lorber;
Twilight Zone (June) complete boxed set if you have $350 to spare;
Ubaldo Terzani Horror Show (April) - again from Raro;
The Asphyx (April) - another one from the Redemption/Kino Lorber partnership. Amazingly this is going to include both the conventional shorter cut that has been available on home video over the last fifteen years or so, and the long cut, which I've never seen (and was beginning to wonder if it even existed). However, the scenes that make up the longer cut have had to be culled from an inferior source due to lack of suitable materials - better that than not at all I think you'll agree. The image quality for the rest of the film is excellent.
