I have a digital copy of 10 of them (I promise to buy them (and a region-free Blu-Ray player) when I'll have some money).
I think the good ones are : Fascination, La morte vivante, La nuit des traquées, La vampire nue, Le viol du vampire, Les démoniaques and Les raisins de la mort
And the bad ones : La rose de fer (great colors, but pretty poor quality), Jeunes filles impudiques (I'm wandering if this is really a Blu-Ray, or just a joke), Le frisson des vampires (not so much better than the Encore edition), Lèvres de sang (quality is a little bit worse than the others Blu-rays).

... but I really admire Redemption and Kino Lorber for their amazing work.

Thanks for the information Martin, I have them all except Zombie Lake but I haven't checked the differences with the Encore releases yet.
I'm convinced the "Jeunes filles impudiques" BR is merely an upscaled transfer of the Danish Another World Entertainment DVD...

(Have a look there)

BTW, the BR are all region-free (I don't know about Zombie Lake though), so hurry up!

Re: The Rollin Blu-rays from Redemption

To be fair to Redemption, La rose de fer has never looked particularly good on dvd - the bd is streets ahead.

I've been quite happy with the majority of them in all honesty.  The Encore editions were mostly impeccable and it is hard to compete with their presentation or extras but I think the new Blu upgrades have all been visually a step up, with Shiver and Lips being the only two where I really can't tell a great difference.  Of the new Blu-rays that hadn't been represented with Encore editions, I was absolutely thrilled with The Iron Rose, as I thought that original US DVD looked horrendous (I can't comment on any international versions).  I also thought The Grapes of Death Blu looked stunning, although I missed the extras from the old release.  Although I agree that the jitter on Jeunes Filles is annoying I still found the Blu to be a big step up from the disastrous DVD that was out in the states previously (again I can't comment on the international release).  Surprisingly I think one of the strongest releases so far has been Zombie Lake.  I still don't like the film but that new transfer is quite incredible.

Can't wait to buy them, just need some money and an import to France (Redemption only ships to USA/Canada).
