Death Rides a Horse Coming to Blu-ray (US)


More exciting blu-ray news!

Kino Lorber Studio Classics announced that Death Rides a Horse will be coming to blu-ray in the United States later this year.  Kino previously released Sabata, Barquero, Captain Apache, and Bad Man's River on blu here in the US, as well as the upcoming 2 disc 50th anniversary edition of The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly and Return of Sabata.

This will be the first US release of Death Rides a Horse.


Explosive Media, who brought us a FANTASTIC German blu-ray releases of The Big Gundown, Sabata, and The Return of Sabata, had previously released Death Rides a Horse in 2013 with many fantastic extras.  You can see my review here.


The Explosive Media version does have a significant framing issue the impacts the last 8 minutes of the film.  The entire end sequence was considerably zoomed in on this Blu-ray. More information on that here.
