How come I have never heard of any of these movies?

Dario Argento is considered the Italian version of Alfred Hitchcock - a real cult favorite.

Ralph Bakshi is known for his 1978 animated adaptation of LOTR and the 1976 fantasy/scifi animation Wizards.

I might get The Final Countdown - one of the better scifi/time travel films from the 80's.

These guys seem to be excited by this news:

Suspiria - Argento's masterpiece. Hopefully in their next list of releases.

Well, i heard about Suspiria... hopefully it comes out on Blu-ray (i think i might have it on dvd or somewhere). Anyhow, as for the movies mentioned in the article, nope, never heard of them, but if there are good reviews, i'll watch them. I don't think any country is too stinky to make good movies. I do have issues with pollutions though :(
