We told you we would be back soon!

First of all, we have good news and bad news, so let's start with the bad news.

As you may noticed it's December, and there is no trace of Heinz in stores. It will take some additional time for him to get released from his prison of eternal underappreciation and we honestly don't know when this will be.
Sorry, guys, we know it's not amusing and we know what you're gonna ask now:

Why?

Well, there are a lot of reasons, so let's call them the good news.
Here are four of them.

Reason one:

As we started to collect all available materials we were told: „Negative is junk, you can have the intermed. Positive.“ That was absolutely not what we think of a satisfying answer and we took our shovels and digged deeply in the vaults. If you follow our updates you'll already know what we have discovered so far, but there was more in the grave. Maybe a treasure chest? For us it was, and for you? We're sure it is, because there is even more material! We found the negative of the French dub and got the permission to use it, so now we're talking about four different tracks for the main feature! And for the trailer lovers amongst you, we also found the negatives for the English, the German and the French trailer, and we think it's not a bad idea to restore all three of them in HD.

Reason two:

Bloody Friday based on true events. And while we're living in the world of digitizing and restoring the film, we're also very busy with looking back on the real events that inspired Rolf Olsen to create the most entertaining exploitation film that every popped up on German screens. After a lot of phone calls and e-mails the Bavarian Government finally gave us the permission to shoot the original exhibits which still exist today!

Do you notice what's film and what's real?

Fiction or reality?

 Reason three:

The lovely and charming Ursula Erber gave us a fascinating and very deep inside look into the making of BLOODY FRIDAY! She played the small but overwhelming part of 'Irmgard Zukunft', the bank clerk who made a bad experience with the not so lovely and not so charming Heinz Klett. Although she played a rather small part, she gave us a much bigger interview and shares her exciting memories on the upcoming release!

Reason four:

Now it's getting interesting! With a huge THANK YOU we have to praise our licensor for an undescribable surprise that came totally out of the blue and knocked us out for a few moments, and finally led to a complete NEW EXTRA!

With the help of the original PRODUCTION DOCUMENTS (yeah, unbelievable!) we're happy to announce a tour to the original locations of BLOODY FRIDAY!
