Huh, how strange.

Looking back on the original press release, they also said that Story of a Three-Day Pass and Don't Play Us Cheap would be coming in 2016 and they've never materialised either. Story of a Three-Day Pass would have played Cannes Classics this year in a new 4K restoration from IndieCollect, so I wonder if that's going to come from Kino at some point.

***NEW TITLE ANNOUNCEMENT***
Coming soon to Blu-ray from Vinegar Syndrome Armando Crispino’s “Autopsy” (1975)

The new header on the Vinegar Syndrome page seems to indicate “Autopsy” as being a part of February Giallo boxset!

Synopsis: A pathology med student and a priest team up to investigate a wave of suicides blamed on sun spots and discover a number of them to be actual murders.

I call bullshit on Coonskin not having good materials. I saw a straight-from-the-lab new 35mm print that was presumably struck from the original camera
negative a number of years ago, and it looked flawless. Kino Lorber gave the same "no good materials" like for Smile, which Fun City is now releasing on Blu.

Key phrase there is "a number of years ago." Just because usuable elements existed then doesn't mean they exist now.

Another key phrase is “couldn’t locate”, which may be entirely true, and so a far more constructive response than a sneeringly superior “I call bullshit” would surely be to reach out to VS directly with as many details of this screening as can be recalled.

From memory, it was the only thing announced for 2020 other than the Spanish horror boxset that never materialised. It’s possible, like the latter, that it’s a COVID-related delay, though I’ve not seen anything mentioned.

VS has a new partner label! It is called ETR Media and is an offshoot of nostalgia-focused record label Enjoy the Ride.

Their first release is called either "Green Jello Suxx Live" (on the website) or "Green Jelly Suxx Live" (on the box art).
