A lot of these films are shot in both English and Italian, with English actors speaking English and Italian actors speaking Italian. The film is then post-dubbed in both languages. Original language is actually both of these options.

I don't recall any italians in Zombie at all. A few bums may have been dubbed, but they didn't look italian to me. So it's news to me...
I know for sure Argento's Inferno and Suspiria, plus some other titles, have been dubbed, indeed. But not Zombie, no.

English language track is usually dubbed too, even if the actors are from the US or the UK. All were done in post production, that was the style back then.

And actually if you look (well, also listen) at some of these more recent Italian tv series, they still seem to be dubbed. I mean the original Italian soundtrack.

I don't recall any italians in Zombie at all.

Perhaps surprisingly, almost half the main cast was actually Italian (and was speaking Italian on-set) - if we consider the other half as comprising the British actors Ian McCulloch and Richard Johnson and the American Tisa Farrow. Al Cliver, who plays Brian Hull, is Italian (his real name is Pier Luigi Conti, and he works as a carpenter in Rome now, I believe); as are both Auretta Gay (who plays Brian's girlfriend) and Stefania D'Amario (who plays the nurse on the island). (Obviously, in his cameo as the newspaper editor Fulci is speaking Italian too.)

Olga Karlatos (who plays Mrs Menard) is Greek; she's a multilingual actress (she cropped up in an episode of THE RETURN OF THE SAINT speaking English, for example), but I'm pretty sure she was speaking English on the set of ZOMBIE/ZOMBI 2, although her lines in the English track are dubbed by a different voice actor.

Damn, I hate those dubs! That's just stupid. But I guess back then it was no other way for low budget european movies... shame though.

Delta Force is very cool. And Price films (I guess Shout released some of these in the U.S., let's see how they compare).

Arrow has a Flash sale on some titles. Sadly only PayPal is accepted for payment so my €70 order went down the toilet :-?

The flash sale had some great titles, tho I already had all the ones I would have wanted so didn't grab anything.

As for the forthcoming titles, lots of interesting ones there. More Vincent Price classics is never a bad thing and Delta Force is one of my fav Norris flicks.
I'll probably pass on the Qatsi films as I already have Criterion's trilogy set. Nice to get de Palma's Sisters also finally in blu, have had the Criterion dvd for ages.
Work occasionally keeps me off the grid but I'll be around sooner or later.
