'Island of the Fishmen' Back on Track for DVD Release   

August 23, 2009 Mya DVD reports that "Island of the Fishmen," which was going to hit DVD stores in July, is now back on track for a release. Plus, Mya has announced the release of a previously unavailable, and very gory, Paul Naschy film.

First, here's what's up with "Island of the Fishmen." "The Mya release of ISLAND OF THE FISHMEN, delayed for a while, is around the corner. Rights issues related to Roger Corman's acquisition of the film (that would be re-edited and released as SOMETHING WAITS IN THE DARK and, later, SCREAMERS) have been resolved."

"Island of the Fishmen", filmed around the same time as Lucio Fulci's "Zombie" (and featuring some of the same cast), is a bit of a cult classic. It saw a small VHS release in the U.S. back in the '80s as "Screamers."

Meanwhile, Mya has also announced a release of the gory Paul Naschy horror film "Hunchback of the Morgue," long available in the "grey market." The film will be in splendid anamorphic widescreen as all Mya releases are.
