Open in new windowKino Lorber announces the Blu-ray and DVD releases of two films by masters of European horror: Mario Bava's THE EVIL EYE (along with the alternate European cut, THE GIRL WHO KNEW TOO MUCH), about a young woman who launches her own investigation of a murder only to learn that she might be next on the killer's list, and Jean Rollin's THE ESCAPEES, which follows two female mental patients who have escaped from a hospital and embark on a dreamlike journey across the French countryside.

THE EVIL EYE (the AIP American release version featuring a score by Ultra-lounge composer Les Baxter) and THE GIRL WHO KNEW TOO MUCH (the alternate European cut) street on May 19, with a SRP of $29.95 for the Blu-ray and $24.95 for the DVD. Special features include an audio commentary by Tim Lucas, author of Mario Bava: All the Colors of the Dark, and the original theatrical trailers.

Kino Lorber is proud to bring these films to Blu-ray and DVD in stunning new transfers, mastered in HD from the original 35mm negatives, that showcase the distinctive and powerful visual styles of genre masters Mario Bava and Jean Rollin.

While vacationing in Italy, a young woman with a passion for crime fiction (Leticia Román) witnesses a brutal murder. With the help of a handsome young doctor (John Saxon), she launches her own investigation and uncovers a series of crimes known as the "Alphabet Murders", only to realize that she may be next on the killer's list.

This Kino Classics edition includes both the original Italian-language version (The Girl Who Knew Too Much) as well as the American cut (Evil Eye, featuring a score by Les Baxter and alternate footage). The last of Bava's features to be shot in black-and-white, Evil Eye is considered one of the earliest gialli, and opened the door for Bava to indulge in a more violent and provocative flavor of films.

Jean Rollin's The Escapees revisits the director's fascination with pairs of women who wander, dreamlike, through a modern dystopia (Requiem for a Vampire, Two Orphan Vampires). Two female patients -- one rebellious (Laurence Dubas), the other despondent (Christiane Coppé) -- flee the grounds of a mental hospital and drift across the French countryside. After finding refuge among a band of gypsy-like exotic dancers, they cross paths with a petty criminal (Marianne Valiot), an aging fortune-teller (Louise Dhour) and a quartet of swingers (including Brigitte Lahaie) with sinister intentions.

Punctuated by moments of unexpected violence and lyrical beauty (as when the emotionless Marie returns to life in a vacant ice rink), The Escapees is among Rollin's most personal films, and has been remastered in HD from the original 35mm negative.

Special Features:
"One Day in Paris: An Interview with Jean Rollin" (2008, 28 minutes)
