Ok, the folks at Dark Hall Mansion are starting off their new Seminal Film Series with a nuclear explosion! Last week we did an extensive post about the project and now there is even MORE good news. First they announce that the first film featured will be Fritz Lang’s ground breaking feature masterpiece, “Metropolis“.
The 1927 classic is a movie that has inspired or touched films like Blade Runner and Star Wars, just to name a few, in such a significant way which makes it the perfect choice to kick things off. Then they tell us that none other than Laurent Durieux is doing the prints! (Homerun!) Now they have something ELSE up their sleeves!
If you go to their FACEBOOK PAGE this is the message you will see…(sit down before you read any further.)
“Little surprise…shhhh how’d you like to win a FREE ARTIST SIGNED edition of the DHM-SEMINAL FILM SERIES “METROPOLIS” Standard Edition or Alternate Edition print?
