We should open a director's thread for Rudolf Thome, don't you think?

Oh my god! Am I really such an evil seducer?
In all bigger german cities, there is a huge DVD Market five times a year, where mainly so-called genre-films are sold. So I've bought some trashy stuff in Nuremberg this sunday but also a few reputated films I've been waiting for years to own and/or , especially, see them...
The Wicker Man (Robin Hardy / UK 1973)
One of the most unusual, weird and best british films ever made, in my opinion. The three-disc-set by Optimum Releasing fortunately includes a CD of the original Soundtrack.
L' Important c'est d'aimer / The most important thing: Love (Andrzej Zulawski / France/Italy/West Germany 1974)
As far as I know this fine new german DVD ist the first official one which includes the english dub.
Demonia (Lucio Fulci / Italy 1990)
The attraction of movies which are said to be crap by EVERYBODY is irresistible.
Les Lvres rouges / Red Lips (Harry Kmel / Belgium/France/West Germany)
Just watched it yesterday - definitely a new discovery of an underrated european arthouse-genre classic. I'll definitely look for Harry Kmel's other films. Some of them has been released by the Royal Film Archive of Belgium, subtitled in english. This one was released by Blue Underground on a great 2-Disc-Set which includes Vincente Arandas feature film "La Novia ensangrentada" as a bonus.
23 - Nichts ist so, wie es scheint (Hans-Christian Schmid / Germany 199
Since I loved the three films by Schmid I watched up to now, I've waited long to get this one (probably his biggest success in Germany). Unfortunately it wasn't released outside of Germany, obviously.
La settima donna / The last house on the beach (Franco Prosperi / Italy 197
Captain Kronos - Vampire Hunter (Brian Clemens / UK 1974)
Flesh and blood (Paul Verhoeven / Spain/Netherlands/USA 1985)
Lemora: A Child's Tale of the Supernatural (Richard Blackburn / USA 1973)
I nuovi barbari / The new barbarians (Enzo G. Castellari / Italy/USA 1982)
2019 - Dopo la caduta di New York / 2019: After the Fall of New York (Sergio Martino / Italy/France 1983)
Hausu / House (Nobuhiko Obayashi / Japan 1977)
Vital (Shinya Tsukamoto / Japan 2004)
Der Teufel kam aus Akasava / The devil came from Akasava (Jesus Franco Manera / West Germany/Spain 1970)
Der Fluch der goldenen Schlange / The curse of the golden Snake (Franz-Joseph Gottlieb / West Germany)
Une corde, un Colt / A Rope, a colt (Robert Hossein / France/Italy 196
Often descripted as a Spaghetti-Western, this one is a strange, but great mixture of relationship and family tragedy and typical cliches of the genre - to which it doesn't really belong as there is nothing - except the simple storyline - to build a bridge to Leone, Corbucci, or Sollima - even though Hossein and Sergio Leone were close friends and Hossein dedicated this film to Leone.
Le trio infernal / The Infernal trio (Francis Girod / France/Italy/West Germany 1974)
Opera (Dario Argento / Italy 1986)
Joshuu sasori: Dai-41 zakkyo-b / Sasori: Jailhouse 41 (Shunya Ito / Japan 1972)
