I got a Creature from the Black Lagoon standalone Blu-Ray, and oh my gosh the 3D is wonderful.     :)  It's been twenty-five years since I saw it in 3D, and I had to go to special screening to see it.  I had been waiting for a 3D home video release for so long!

Yeah "The Creature" 3-D comes with Universal Coffin box set---it's pretty awesome.

Just ordered triple feature dvd: "Alligator People," "Lake Placid," and "Swamp Thing."

I'm pretty psyched.

Post by: geezer butler on July 23, 2014, 08:10:43 AM
Hey, guys

I haven't had a chance to look at the blueray yet, but according to the box "Dan Curtis' Dracula has been transferred and restored in 2K High Definition from the original 35mm camera negative."

Hopefully I'll watch it this weekend and let you know how it looks.

"Dan Curtis' Dracula has been transferred and restored in 2K High Definition from the original 35mm camera negative."

I looked it up. It was "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" that was shot on video tape.

I've heard a few complaints from Blu-ray people that it robs the film of it's grittiness. That Dark Sky DVD was as perfect as you could get without over-sanitizing it, imo. I've never heard a single complaint about that one.

Yeah American Psycho is great---one of my fav horror films in last 20 yrs. The book is excellent too. I think about our discussion in another thread: American Psycho is not a pleasant story and there are gory moments, but the story is so well written and the character so compelling that the over the top violence actually syncs well with overall film. I don't see that with a lot of these slaughter-porn flicks that Rob Zombie and others put out these days.

I love them all, especially The Skull. You can't beat Peter Cushing, and he's in all four. If you like classic Hammer, you'll like Amicus.

Got this baby on the way. I had Hands Of The Ripper on a boot, but knowing how great these Synapse combos are I had to bite. I have the Synapse combos for Vampire Circus and Twins Of Evil and they are very impressive with beautiful transfers and excellent special features. Can't wait.

It comes with the same 48 page book as the B-R set. The best thing about this is that it has the best available versions of each of the 31 movies in one, fairly compact set. Another plus is that all the sequels are free of the many flaws the legacy collections had. The individual packages have beautiful box art as well.

Alright! Thanks, Mord's brother!  :)  I didn't think I'd ever seen one. I remember some foreign Legacy sets that were different, somehow, than the R1 sets. Pretty much the same box art. I can probably find those on amazon.uk, if I really wanna know.

I think the Blu-Rays are the only UM box sets that aren't just all the individual movie packages thrown into one big cardboard box.

The Hammer stuff is gotta have. I'm really glad Synapse came through on those combo packs for Vampire Circus, Twins Of Evil, and Hands Of The Ripper.

I have all of the Hammer monster/horror/sci-fi oriented titles on DVD/BD except for three of the Bette Davis flicks. I'll eventually get those but the DVD releases available for those are kinda pricey for what you get. I also have the DVD Icons Of Adventure and Icons Of Suspense Hammer sets. I rank Hammer the near equal of Universal in terms of importance in monster movie history, and I think Hammer flicks are on average more entertaining than Universal's. That's really saying something since I revere Universal so highly. The main Hammer films are essential for a good monster movie library.
Title: Re: Latest dvds and bluerays
Post by: Mord on December 26, 2014, 09:18:28 PM
 I have to agree with my brother, HH. I find Universal & Hammer to be about 50/50. I love both equally for different reasons. Universal made a horror legacy possible. They had the formidable team of Karloff/Lugosi (Hammer answered with Cushing/Lee). Both studios featured literate, innovative films soaked in terrific atmosphere. The Universal monster designs were more definitive (Pierce's Frankenstein Monster, the Wolfman...Westmore's Creature). Hammer got the heart pumping with more blood & (more importantly) more breasts. Universal's "The Black Cat"(1934) & Hammer's "(Horror of) Dracula" are probably my two all time favorite films. I really couldn't (and wouldn't) choose between the two. I feel that they both are my dearest friends from childhood to the present.

Great selection of movies! Your best bet is the "Bela Lugosi Franchise Collection" from Universal. It includes: The Blact Cat (1934), The Raven (1935), The Invisible Ray, Black Friday, & Murders in the Rue Morgue. Night Key, Tower of London & The Climax are on the "Boris Karloff Franchise Collection". Both were released in 2006 & should be easy to find (the Bela collection is far superior, though). Old Dark House was restored & released by Image some time ago. I'm pretty sure it's out of production but probably not too hard to find. Good luck, Jimm.

I went to watch "Horror Express" the other night and couldn't believe how bad the quality was. I've had that DVD for years, but it never bothered me before.

So anyhow, I popped the disc out and ordered the blu-ray. And because I have no impulse control when it comes to buying monster movies, I added a few more to the cart and they arrived the other day:

Horror Express (1972)
Vampire Circus (1972)

I upgraded a couple of other films to blu-ray too:

Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956)
The Fly (1958)

Lastly, I picked up the Dan Curtis/Jack Palance Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde DVD (1968)

I actually bought the dvd/Bluray combo of these before I got a Bluray player.  I don't have the original dvd release but the transfer on this dvd looked great (I would assume it is just a highly compressed version of the HD print); I'll have to get this one back off the shelf and check it out.  I can actually watch the bonus features now.

One complaint I have read is that some folks feel the Bluray transfer is to dark.

Thanks for the info. The DVD I have is the British one from a few years ago. My main complaint with this edition is that it's a little grainy (though too dark might be an even bigger problem). Tell me what you think (after you watch it again).

The image looks good and I can only assume that the transfer is better than the old dvd release (Just about every review I've seen says so).  The grain is still evident and I'd say for the most part there wasn't a whole lot of extra work done on cleaning up blemishes on the print.  The picture is dark, I mean night scenes are definitely night scenes.  I keep my brightness relatively high (90 or so, most setting guides suggest 60max) and the night scenes are deep black still.  This may be the best Vampire Circus we get for now but I hope it isn't the last release we get of it; they could definitely put a little more work into it.  There are a few sights that compare screen shots of the old dvd and Bluray release that can probably give you a better idea of the two transfers.  I recall being hesitant about picking this up after reading reviews and only got it because I got for a good deal off of Deep Discount at the time; definitely not worth full retail....or god forbid some overpriced OOP price.

Hey, Everyone

Hopefully be able to watch Vampire Circus in the next week or so and let you know how it looks.

In the meantime, I was (*at*) Best Buy today and picked up "Alien" (1979) and "The Terminator" (1984) blue-rays for $4.99 a piece. I'll upgrade for that price anytime. They had TCM and Halloween for $14.99 on BR. I was real tempted. May have to go back.

Watched that "Horror Express" blue-ray the other night. I thought it looked great. I was used to that awful grainy dvd version. There are some cool extras on the disc. Anyhow, they explained that because Horror Express is a public domain film, there are some pretty garbage quality VHS and DVD versions out there. I def recommend the Blue-ray though---never looked better.

I love this movie. Cool film score and just a great Gothic/sci-fi horror/Agatha Christie train mystery mash up. I love the claustrophobic vibe of the film. Not sure why, but setting the film in pre-revolutionary Russia adds to the creepiness. You have zombie Cossacks, Cushing and Lee, the freaky Rasputin monk character---what more can you ask for? Plus Telly Savalas is a scene stealer.

"Godzilla vs Megalon"--my first Godzilla Blu Ray.  Back in the day, I used to find this film really annoying, and I didn't give it a chance back then.  Now, I view this film from a very different perspective, and I wanted to appreciate this stuffed cheese turkey in the finest digital clarity I could get hold of.  And on that level, it satisfies just fine!!

Great stuff neonoodle---I think this blue-ray looks awesome. I love this movie. You know there's a split in the Godzilla community over these movies. Some fans don't care for the late 60s/early 70s kid-friendly (good guy) Godzilla movies. I totally disagree though. These are the films i grew up with. I also like the Godzilla look in these films: rounder head, bigger eyes. Even though I love the early films, I prefer the G-Man as a 'good guy.' Just my opinion.
Title: Re: Latest dvds and bluerays
Post by: neonnoodle on February 14, 2015, 11:49:55 PM
Oh yes, geezerbutler, I like Godzilla as a good guy, and some of my favorites are "Monster Zero" and "Godzilla vs. the Sea Monster" where he's not technically a "good guy" but sort of neutral, but the character sort of follows his instincts and ends up fighting on the side of right.  He's kind of a helpful force of nature in those.  "Ghidrah the Three-Headed Monster" is good too, with the monsters talking with each other and the fairy girls translating. Wowwwww, fun stuff.

I ordered the Region 1 version of this by Severin Films:
(http://www.cageyfilms.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/Nasties1.jpg)

I enjoy the Horror/Exploitation sub-genres like Cannibal, Nazisploitation, and Women In Prison, and the history of censorship and witch hunts involving Horror and Exploitation Films, so this Video Nasties set looks like fun. I'll probably get Video Nasties 2 before long.

I also ordered NEW:

The Creeping Flesh DVD (Hammeresque Tigon with the Team Supreme Cushing and Lee)
The Quatermass Xperiment BD (Gotta have my HAMMER)

...and I finally found Cannibal Apocalypse on DVD for a reasonable price in "Like New" condition. That was the last classic Cannibal flick I needed. I always liked John Saxon and I've been wanting to see this one since I passed on buying it new at Borders several years ago...dumb move.

Nice.

Dude, when you get the chance you should pick up Werewolf Shadow (1971) on DVD from BCI. It's the original uncut Spanish version and it's beautiful. I have the 2-pack (both in the same case) with Curse Of The Devil and it also has the chopped up US cut Werewolf Vs. The Vampire Woman as well as some other good special features and nice sharp video quality.

These DVDs are OOP and might be a little pricey now but are well worth it. That's my go-to double feature when I crave some classic Naschy.  ;)

Thanks Horrorhunter. I'll check those out. That set looks pretty sick. Speaking of Naschy, it bums me out that I can't find "Frankenstein's Bloody Terror" at a reasonable price.

Basically I have a big 3 of dvds I'm after but are too cost prohibitive: "Frankenstein's Bloody Terror," "Godzilla versus Mechagodzilla," and "The Devil Rides Out."

I had no idea those had gotten so expensive. I bought all that stuff when it first came out years ago. I bought Godzilla Vs. Mechagodzilla in the 3-pack with Son Of Godzilla and Tokyo SOS. I bought The Devil Rides Out in the Anchor Bay double feature with Rasputin, The Mad Monk. And, I was ecstatic when I found that copy of Frankenstein's Bloody Terror at Best Buy those years ago. "Wow, finally the first Naschy Daninsky, Mark Of The Wolfman", albeit Sam-Shermaned-up a bit. I used to visit Best Buy and Media Play 2 or 3 times a week looking for monsters on DVD, and VHS before that.

I was watching Video Nasties last night and on one of the little intros before a trailer Kim Newman was mentioning how expensive some of the old VHS releases had gotten. I don't even collect VHS, having switched totally to DVD and Blu, but I still have all of mine from before as well as three more boxes of them that were dumped on me cheap by a friend who had to move. I need to check some of those on Amazon and see if any of that stuff has any value. I just have no desire to collect VHS at all. I think it's a poor medium and I've lost some good video thanks to tapes degrading or breaking. Those old ones in SLP are the worst.

I love Island Of Terror and taped it off of Sci-Fi Channel "Mutant Meltdown" back in the '90s (when it was worth a damn  ;D). Later I burned it onto disc. I haven't gotten around to buying a legit DVD of it but I believe the best ones are Region 2 (and pricey). If someone does a nice Blu-ray of it with special features I'll jump on it. Until then I like the "Mutant Meltdown" version with all the original commercials.

Re: Horror Express Blu-ray/DVD Combo. Yeah, now that is a nice little package from Severin Films. Horror Express is excellent, and it's great to see it complete and sparkling like this. That film has one of the coolest musical scores ever...really hauntingly beautiful. And, it's filled with Spanish Horror regulars. It's like a B-list who's who from the Naschyverse, along with Hammer's Team Supreme Cushing and Lee, and even Telly.  :laugh: It's like Hammer meets Eurohorror.  :)

Awesome stuff Bogey. I already have three different DVD versions of Gojira, so I've put off upgrading to blu-ray, but maybe I should. That set looks pretty cool.

13 Ghosts (1960)

I buy the DVDs of this film, discard the actual discs themselves, and then collect the Ghost-Viewer replicas when I find them, like bubblegum cards.  I have 15,527 of them.

Thanks! It's a funny thing about the Dinosaurus dvd..I was looking for a decent grey market version as this release is so out of price range usually and has been for several years now, when I came across a listing for this original. At first I thought it had to be a bootleg because the bidding was so low for it, however, it proved to be real and was worth the effort.

The Quatermass double-feature is one that I have checked on periodically over the years and it just finally paid off. :)

I didn't realize that. I bought that one back in the day. Man, just think how bad it will get in later years since discs are on the way out and streaming and cloud storage is taking over. Collectors need to stock up now or really pay out the wazoo for this stuff down the road. I'm all about the physical media myself.

I'm currently playing the waiting game for The People Who Own The Dark. I wish Code Red had bigger print runs. I've seen the $30 DVD-R version on evilBay but I'll pass on that and probably get a real one even cheaper later on. I'm just thankful I have most of the movies I want on disc. Playing the waiting game on too many might cause a person to wait too long and pay MUCH more later on.

My curiosity about the Universal Monsters blu-ray restorations has gotten to me, and I ordered some from Amazon.  Occasionally the prices drop substantially on these things.  I really want to see (and hear) the restoration of Dracula.

I have various older versions of the film, so if the restoration is too wonderful, I can always go back to a scratchy, dusty transfer.  Nice to be able to make a choice.

This is how it is, folks: I don't really get excited about new releases these days.  Not that often, anyway.  Too many times I take a chance on something, hoping I will like it, and I get disappointed.  (That's not true of every modern film I see!  Just most of them.)

But I am waiting for the set of restored Universal Classic horror films to arrive in the mail.  I have heard all about how good they look and sound, and have seen some samples.  And I'm as giddy as a little kid to see these.  If I have always known these films as dusty, fuzzy, scratchy things--and loved them just as they were--I can only imagine what seeing 2x or 3x the detail will be like.

I have seen "Creature from the Black Lagoon" on Blu-ray in both its 2D and 3D versions (bought it separately some months ago), and that looks fantastically clear.  Particularly, of course, the 3D version, which I had never been lucky enough to see the polarized version of on the big screen--the way those 3D images display all that depth.......the 3D version is just phenomenal.  For that picture, all the elements came together so beautifully.

I think those older classics from the 30's and 40's will be just as fantastic!

The Mist 2 disc Collectors Edition. While this isn't a new release I just watched this last night and man is this a great film. One of the better horror films of the new millennium. The collectors edition Blu-ray comes with a second disc that has the movie in B&W and this movie really lends itself well to that old school look. Either way, color or B&W it's just a terrific film, very scary. Highly recommended!

I picked up:
30 Days of Night
The Cabin in the Woods
Robocop (2014)

and
Batman Returns on blue-ray.

Out the door I think I spent like $12.

Looks like Universal is releasing one in August as well but it appears to be a bare bones release, no extras.

Received this in the mail yesterday and watched it last night. WOW!! The picture quality is unbelievable! Like it was filmed yesterday, it really is that good and the bonus features are great. In particular the half hour documentary on the making of the film and the 20 minute featurette on revisiting the film locations today. The documentary is great, talking with the director and the cast and how disappointed they were when the film flopped commercially and their surprise when they find out just how many people love the film today. All in all really great. If you like Halloween III this Blu-Ray is an absolute must have. Highly recommended!!

Your right Mord and unfortunately the UK Horror of Dracula Blu-ray isn't region free so you would need an all region player to watch it here. They did release the first Basket Case on Blu-ray in the US but not the sequels (DVD only) which are a hoot! I don't know if you've seen them but they are nuts.

I loved the original "Basket Case", but I haven't seen the sequels. What I meant by region free is the player. Once you get one of those, you can watch anything. I just think that American companies want to gear everything to digital downloads. That way, they can charge you without having to provide you with any physical content. I hate that idea. As a collector, I want to have something in my hand that is tangible. I miss the elaborate booklets they used to include in DVDs. Hell, I would settle for a sheet with chapter stops & poster art.

The sequels had a bigger budget and it shows. Like the Evil Dead series the sequels incorporated more humor but were just as weird. I'll never forget the love scene between Belial and his female counterpart.  :o

Absolutely, not only do you not get any inserts anymore but I also hate those cases with the cut outs on the front and back to save plastic.  >:( I was looking at my original Basket Case DVD and the case that thing came in was like armor! Super thick and heavy. All my older DVD cases are like that. I will say however that disc prices have dropped significantly since the format was first introduced. I can buy the Blu-ray of most of my movies for less than I paid for the original DVD release. I guess that's the trade off.
Title: Re: Latest dvds and bluerays
Post by: Mord on August 06, 2015, 02:58:37 PM
 That's true. I remember the prohibitive prices of Blu-rays. Now you can find some of them in the budget bins for under five bucks. Though if it's something I love (Universal, Hammer, eighties horror), I would rather pay more to get a flashy edition. I really hate the look of Blu-ray cases. That little blue strip on top, that reduces the box art even more, is annoying. I like the hardcover book editions (like Halloween) and the steel book versions. My brother collects unique DVD & Blu-ray packages. You should see the elaborate boxes they devise for "The Walking Dead" sets.

I remember when the appeal of dvds was: they take up far less space than vhs tapes do, have better clarity and last forever. Now its all about steel books, big old zombie and Predator heads, Alien eggs and Caesar apes busts.

Its a madhouse! A madhouse! >:D >:D

Oh yeah, that's a great one (definitely the best). Check out the new one coming out. It's a crawling zombie.

People are screaming bloody murder about the price on the season 5 special edition though. It's retailing for $134.99 on Amazon! Way more than any of the previous seasons. I think I only paid something like $69.00 for the season 2 special edition. Of course now it's going for way more.

Yeah, but you have to remember that most of us collect toys, busts, statues etc. When you make it part of the DVD package, it makes it doubly attractive. You're also saving space, since your movies are now housed in your collectibles. I hope that makes sense (remember, I'm using collector logic here).

Yeah, my brother complained about that (just as he was pre-ordering it). It seems that some of these things (especially full TV seasons) keep going up in price. Blame Netflix for that. Most people just binge watch it there, rather than buying it. They have to sell it for a lot more money, since considerably less people are actually buying nowadays.

With all due respect to George this was a case where I liked the re-make better than the original. Bigger budget (obviously) and better acted. Where the original focused more on the government's ineptitude, the re-make focused more on the human drama aspect.

I whole-heartedly agree. I saw the remake in the theater and was blown away. Romero's original was the seed, but the remake is the full-grown flower.

Be on the lookout for this Code Red Eurohorror double feature. I ordered it from Code Red along with the Dr. Jekyll And The Werewolf/Vampire's Night Orgy double feature that you posted before they went OOP. The Night Of 1,000 Cats is big fun.

Just picked this movie up on DVD (no Blu Ray available for this title). While critics panned it I really like this movie. Part of the reason is I saw it on a double bill with "Taste the Blood of Dracula" when I was a kid but it's also a great B monster movie. It was Joan Crawford's last film so the acting is a cut above your average B film and it had a great bad guy played by Michael Gough. Boy, his character was the kind you love to hate. Basically Trog is the missing link thawed out in modern times. He isn't evil or bad, he's like a backwards child that doesn't understand what he's doing. Joan Crawford is an anthropologist that tries to domesticate Trog and Michael Gough's character keeps trying to have Trog destroyed as he believes Trog is a menace to society. I also liked the make-up for Trog. I thought it was effective, especially the facial expressions. If you haven't seen this flick give it a try. The DVD can be had for next to nothing. Two thumbs up.

It was in a Saturday matinee on a double feature where "Trog" was the main event (believe it or not). It was goofy fun. I haven't seen it since.

Hey, on the subject of fun '70s movies...you've seen "The Living Dead at the Manchester Morgue, right? It's a really cool, early zombie flick.

I have the DVD under the title of "Let Sleeping Corpses Lie". Same movie. A good, creepy Spanish zombie film. The Blu Ray uses "The Living Dead at the Manchester Morgue" title. Haven't upgraded that one yet. It will take a long time and a lot of money to upgrade all the horror movies I own to Blu Ray.

I still have the Blue Underground DVD and I'm in no hurry to upgrade either. That is some excellent Eurohorror BTW. Grau also directed Legend Of Blood Castle which is great if you like '70s Eurohorror (which I love). I pick and choose about upgrades, and spend the money I save by not doing blanket upgrades wisely...on MONSTER STUFF.  ;D

You have to be careful, sometimes just buying something on Blu isn't much of an upgrade at all. It all depends on what it's sourced from and what was done to restore it. Also, they don't always include all of the extras from the DVD releases. I have some DVD releases that are superior to the BD release for one reason or another. I always do some research before I upgrade. There are many review sites on the 'net. Here's a good one:

I totally hear you on what to upgrade and do careful research before I do. A good example is the latest Blu Ray release of "Day of the Dead" by Scream Factory. I already have the Anchor Bay release in all forms. Standard DVD, DIVAMAX DVD and Blu Ray so I was hesitant about the Scream Factory release. Turns out it's missing some of the extras of the Anchor Bay release so they created their own 90 documentary to make up for the missing extras. Point being it will not replace the previous AB release. Scream Factory does some impressive stuff though. Their Halloween III release is great and I just picked up their new release of Stuart Gordons' "From Beyond" where all the deleted scenes removed by the MPAA for an R rating are restored. Looking forward to watching that. Thanks for the dvddrive-in tip.

Wound up popping on this one because of the all new 85 minute documentary "The Making of Day of the Dead". Really good stuff as just about every actor who had a speaking part in the movie had something to contribute as well as some of the actors who played the lead zombies. What surprised me most is that George said this is his favorite of the "Dead" films and his second favorite is "Survival". He said he's waiting for everyone to catch up with "Survival" in the same way it took fans a while to warm up to "Day". I thought for sure his #2 favorite would have been "Dawn". Very enlightening.

(http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/A1JFl2piEUL._SX425_.jpg)

The new collectors edition of "From Beyond" is outstanding as it replaces all the cuts that the MPAA had them remove to avoid an X rating. As Stuart Gordon says in one of the featurettes this is the way the movie was meant to be seen. This film also had a way bigger budget than "Re-Animator" and the special effects shots really show where that money went. I think this movie is right up there with "Re-Animator". Great horror movie! I'm becoming a big fan of these Shout / Scream Factory releases.

 Funny, "Survival" is most people's least favorite (including my own). I know that he looked at "Dawn" from a technical standpoint. Many involved felt that the zombie make-up wasn't as good as it could be and that the budget was too small. Those things are positives to me. You really can't have perfection during a zombie apocalypse.

What I find interesting about "Dawn" and "Day" is that the biggest star of these films are the location. For "Dawn" it's the Mall and for "Day" it's the Mines. What a great title for a documentary, "The Mall and the Mines".  :) The mines were discussed at length in the new "Day" Blu Ray. They were in there for months so health and depression problems were an issue. There's a mini featurette where they revisited the mines today. Cool stuff.

I guess you can't get that depressed being in a shopping mall (unless it's Christmas time). I didn't even think about the cast having to nearly live in the mines. One thing that's great about Romero's actors is their loyalty. Look at the running commentaries & documentaries on the DVD's (even back to "Night of"). Just about every actor is involved years or decades after the fact. BTW, how is the picture quality compared to the Divamax version?

It is an all new film transfer but I only watched the special features last night. I'll probably watch the movie over the next couple of nights. Here's a review of this new Blu Ray. He says it's a lot better transfer but not a revelation. One thing I don't agree with him on is that he says the 85 minute documentary is a bit long but I disagree. I was riveted from beginning to end.

I hear you. I mainly wanted it for the new documentary which was really good. Romero's original trilogy are one of the few things that I'll do double, triple and even quadruple dips on. Those movies ushered in a new era of horror.

Nothing wrong with DVD's. I still buy them too. When Blu Ray was a new format it was more common for companies to just slap the DVD transfer on to a Blu Ray so in that case there's no advantage. However when a Blu Ray is done right there's a big difference even when compared to an HD recording done from a DVR.

Yeah I still buy a lot of dvds too. There are so many great vintage sci-fi and horror flicks  unavailable on blue-ray that you don't have a choice. Or sometimes the Blue-ray is just too cost prohibitive.

When you talk about quality, I'm not convinced the Hammer blue-rays are a huge improvement over the dvds. But I'm a sucker for box set editions with books or some kind of collectible. If the Hammer Classics Volume 1 Blue-ray set comes with some thing cool, then I'll be tempted. Otherwise, I'm pretty satisfied with my dvd versions of the four movies.

 I'm pretty sure the first Hammer set wont come with anything special. The most annoying thing about it is that they just stick some random Hammer films together and call them a "set". Jeez, make it a theme set (Dracula, Frankenstein, vampires etc.). I'm not buying any Hammer sets until they make sense. As for the Blu-Ray quality, it depends on the film. The "(Horror of) Dracula" restored Blu-Ray is exceptional. Unfortunately, it's not available in the U.S.. Even if you buy the import, you will need a region-free player to watch it (which I recommend getting).

Why there isn't a Blu Ray option to start with is perplexing and people online are questioning that decision already. This is going to be a must have item though.

While I think Blu rays are great ( The Universal Monsters Collection shows that when you really wish to make something look better you can) I am not upgrading everything. What a waste of money that would be.

I mean, we all of us already paid 14.99 each for vhs tapes that can now be found at garage sales for 25 cents each. Then we upgraded to dvds. How many dollars do we need to sink into "The Wasp Woman" over our lifetime? :angel:  I will buy the occasional blu ray "yowza" disc. Like House of Dark Shadows, the mentioned Universal set, and House of Long Shadows. Because they were never on a proper dvd.. or the restoration just really made them look better.

But I didnt buy either of the Vincent Price blu ray sets. The dvds are fine. The films are newer. I really don't need to count the pores of Vinney's nose or the acne scar on the neck of Anthony Carbone.

Some folks discuss dvds as if those who buy them are C.H.U.D.s. or something. ;D I have suits older than the dvd format. I aint gonna live forever. So, I gotta decide what I wanna spend my money on while I am still breathing. Upgrading a massive dvd collection to blu ray aint one of them.

Find London After Midnight.... and put that on Blu ray. That'll make everybody happy,lol. 8)

I don't feel that way at all. Usually I upgrade from a DVD when it's warranted. Like the original Good Times DVD of Halloween III looks terrible on an a large screen HD TV because we only had tube SD TV's when that disc was released and it was fine for that. The other times I'll upgrade is when they give us something we didn't get in the DVD version, like "From Beyond" was restored to it's original content before the MPAA made them chop out a bunch of stuff to get an R rating. There's no way I would replace all my DVD's as it is entirely cost prohibitive.

Post by: horrorhunter on August 18, 2015, 03:31:37 PM
I'm happy with my DVDs for the most part. I have a few BDs but there has to be a good reason for me to upgrade... like the uncut version of Vault Of Horror, or good deals on the Fulci Collection and Argento Collection. I also upgraded to the 3-disc The Beyond from Grindhouse for the extra stuff and cool CD. And, any monster fan is nuts not to have the UniMon Essentials Collection. I also have the Horror Express BD because I love that movie and only had a dozen copies of it on PD purgatory compilations. Very nice to see it complete and shiny. Hell, I even bought Barbarella on BD because I didn't have it and it was almost as cheap as the DVD. No way I would ever upgrade everything... TOO MUCH MONSTER MONEY. My DVDs suffice.

I probably won't buy the new Hammer DVD set. That was cranked out to capitalize on the passing of Sir Christopher and it doesn't look like much of an improvement over what we have. And the reason we never see Hammer films released in sets the way we want them is because so many different companies own the rights. Those gems will always be strewn about chaotically it seems.

I didnt mean you, Glenn. I have a circle of friends who seem to excoriate me relentlessly until I jump on the upgrade bandwagon. It gets old. I figure most of us on the board have ran into this type of badgering. Heck---I still have a couple vhs tapes around,lol.

There PD stuff (like the 50 movie sets) is, but they've been rereleasing a lot of Columbia movies that should be as good the original DVDs. There may be some compression problems with the 4 movie sets, but they are pressed DVDs, whereas some of the originals were DVDR.

Post by: zombiehorror on August 19, 2015, 03:02:00 PM
I totally hear you on what to upgrade and do careful research before I do. A good example is the latest Blu Ray release of "Day of the Dead" by Scream Factory. I already have the Anchor Bay release in all forms. Standard DVD, DIVAMAX DVD and Blu Ray so I was hesitant about the Scream Factory release. Turns out it's missing some of the extras of the Anchor Bay release so they created their own 90 documentary to make up for the missing extras. Point being it will not replace the previous AB release. Scream Factory does some impressive stuff though. Their Halloween III release is great and I just picked up their new release of Stuart Gordons' "From Beyond" where all the deleted scenes removed by the MPAA for an R rating are restored. Looking forward to watching that. Thanks for the dvddrive-in tip.


I had previously posted a comparison between the AB Divamax dvd and Shout/Scream Factory dvd/bluray release http://www.universalmonsterarmy.com/forum/index.php?topic=19899.msg402529#msg402529 (http://www.universalmonsterarmy.com/forum/index.php?topic=19899.msg402529#msg402529)

Basket Case, The Trilogy
(UK Steel Book Region Free Blu Ray set)

Finally got around to watching these. These movies are some of the craziest horror films I've ever seen. The first one was done on a shoe string budget but introduced the basic premise of the franchise. The second and third had the benefit of bigger budgets making them on par with most horror films of the 80's production wise. This larger budget also allowed director Frank Henenlotter to expand the concept to greater (or lower, depending on your tastes) heights than the first film. I actually prefer the sequels. Each film tops the last in out and out craziness. I had never seen the third installment until I got this set but had always liked the second film. I was literally shaking my head in disbelief at what director Frank Henenlotter had come up with in the final installment. One thing I really like about the sequels is that they introduce a whole pack of crazy new characters that are on the screen for most of the movie as opposed to films where the monster/monsters only show up here and there. It's a practical effects lovers smorgasbord! These are the kind of movies you and your buddies would watch while downing a few cold ones. Hilarious and completely over the top! Two big thumbs up!

I thought so too, geez. Hard to believe anyone could be sour on those two DVD compilations. The two I hadn't seen were Five and Valley Of The Dragons. Five is good, but more drama than sci-fi. And, ...Dragons is cheezy fun (hell, I'm a dino nut so I even enjoy the fins glued on lizards sub-sub-subgenre  :laugh:, and the two main bims are hawt ta boot.)

The MM book is pretty good but it could stand to be about a hundred pages longer IMO...not exactly a coffee table busting tome there.

Unless they do restoration on them a Bluray release isn't worth it, it'll just be a higher price tag for the same thing we've gotten before.  Even if they do HD/restoration on them, a barebones dvd would be just as good as a Bluray (that would probably just have all the same special features we've seen before anyway).

A bunch of folks complained about the recent Universal collection that was released on dvd only but again only the main films (and Bride) were HD/restored (which those same HD prints were used for the dvd versions) so Bluray wouldn't have been beneficial anyway.

House of the Long Shadows Blu ray. Kino Lorber. This is the first time I have ever been able to watch the film and actually see whats going on. Details are actually discernible! You can see a lot of stuff you have not been able to see in the crummy vhs release, the equally crummy made to order dv-r release, or even the British only dvd from a few years back.

if you like this film, and want to see it (and actually see whats happening) I recommend it. ;D

Considering I usually dont upgrade to blu unless theres a massive improvement made (or if the film has never had a proper release like Without Warning 1980)...take me at my ultimate cheapskate word. This one is worth it. 8)

City Of The Dead is one of the best horror films ever made. Man, it just oozes that spooky atmosphere!  cl:)

Coincidently, I just finished watching the Amicus documentary a couple of days ago. So awesome getting to look back at those days of excellent British Horror through the eyes of the folks who lived it. As great as Hammer was, Amicus was just as good. They were practically the same, really. Quality documentary. I got a little misty-eyed watching some of those interviews.

Definitely  agree with you, horrorhunter. Hallowe'en III seems to have a separate fan base on it's own. Hallowe'en III is an excellent film and deserves more praise, than the criticism it has endured over the past
Thirty years. The narrative of the film is dark. To me killing Children isn't cheesy. But many feel Hallowe'en III is a cheesy film or just subpar.

I've always loved this flick. It has achieved status as a cult classic. People are starting to accept it as a stand alone movie now and not the "Halloween movie without Michael Myers". If they had called it something like "Happy Halloween" instead of "Halloween III" it wouldn't have gotten such a bad rep in the first place. Tom Atkins was at Son of Monsterpalooza. It was cool seeing him in person. He's been in so many movies that I like.

The 2004 Frankenstein Legacy set on DVD.
I get a kick out of how it promotes the film "Van Helsing". I haven't seen "Van Helsing", so I'm not personally judging it...I'm just thinking of how it was received around here, and what all of your reactions might have been if/when you bought this set and saw a promotion for "Van Helsing" on the front of it (this being a classic Universal Monster set, no less)!

MIRACLE MILE, 1988.


In the middle of the night a phone rings in a booth near a diner.  The main character answers it and is told by the caller, who has mis-dialed,  that World War III has begun.  Missiles have been launched toward the U.S. and soon the retaliation will begin.  The call ends abruptly with the sound of gunfire on the other end.  Another voice comes on and says to ignore the call and "go back to sleep".

Was it real?  Was it all a prank?

This is the story of what follows.


Yeah, I know the actions here are not very likely, the film is dated and the dumb romance thread is a distraction.  But I still get a kick out of this movie starring ER's Anthony Edwards.  It even has John Agar.

Finally, this little film has been re-mastered and issued in the proper ratio with commentaries and other extras.

As gifts I got the Witch's Dungeon Documentary and the Kino Phantom of the Opera Blu Ray.
Now the Kino Blu Ray is known for some major problems. The 20 fps 1929 version has this weird jump to an unrelated scene for a second and the 1925 version is in terrible quality. This aside this is also the most complete version of the 1925 version I've seen so this is good if you're a completionist.

The 16mm print was only used to replace scenes not found in the 1929 (35mm) print, so it's only partially terrible.

Don't know what you think you're talking about but you're wrong. The history is really complicated. So it's a common mistake.
The 16 mm print was used as the basis for the entirety of the original version that survives today. The only 1929 thing that was used in the original print of today was the title screen.
Since every scene in the 1929 version is a completely different take or second camera angle there's nearly nothing in the 1929 silent version that matches.
The 16 mm print has been restored to amazing quality but Kino didn't use these restorations.

Don't know what you think you're talking about but you're wrong.

So, why is it the parts that are in the '29 look great, while the rest of the '25 looks like crap?
Title: Re: Latest dvds and bluerays
Post by: YoungestMonsterKid on December 29, 2015, 06:12:45 PM
So, why is it the parts that are in the '29 look great, while the rest of the '25 looks like crap?
The 1929 version we have today is from a movie print composed of outtakes, alternate camera footage, and silent bits of the 1929 new sound footage.
It doesn't really contain any parts of the original film. It was given to Eastman House when they requested a copy from Universal but Universal had already destroyed any original theatre copies in 1948.
The footage in the two versions are all completely different.
The 1929 sound version used new scenes being filmed now in sound but also reused outtakes of the original for the silent sections of the new film. No one's quite sure why of this next part but it's believed that even more hastily they took this sound version and edited more outtakes into the sound scene's places so that it could be sold on theatres not yet equipped for sound in the new format of the sound version.

The sound discs survive but the sound version is lost except for one few minute reel which shows the Phantom's assistant speaking to Christine through a mirror and the shadow of a guy pretending to be Lon Chaney.
So when they present the "sound version" today it's actually the 1929 silent version with these sound discs trying to sync up short sentences and sound effects, practically all of the talking is cut out since it doesn't sync up so it's kind of pointless.

And on the subject of color. The original film had 17 minutes of color scenes. But the color scenes would be kept seperate from the main film which would have black and white versions of the scenes . If it was showing in a major area they would add in the color clips. That's why we only have a one minute color sequence in the 1929 version. The short clip was found in the 70's and strangely enough matched up with the 1929 silent version so it was edited into the 1929 silent version. Then people colored in some more with computers.

So the real film only survives in several 16 mm Show At Home prints from the 1930's. People would watch these off projectors in their houses so Universal made the prints smaller and didn't include any color scenes. These wouldn't be discovered until later.

Basically imagine it like this: London after Midnight is found but people still insist on watching the Turner Classic Movies version made of stills.

Well regardless of how complete they are the main 1925 version was still compiles from 8 different Show at Home prints.

Tell her that her shiny new flat-screen may have an embedded check against displaying PAL video (720x576 pixels) vs. North America's standard NTSC (720x480).  North Americans are unworthy of seeing so many pixels-per-inch.  We are worthy of seeing a higher refresh rate, though.  I'm glad that Mike's confessed to his equipment's capabilities, because I've got just the right torture test awaiting.

Every time I see a monitor with the hyped "with HDCP!!" on it, that's a red-flag saying, "We can play Copy-Protected Media, AND WE CAN STOP YOU FROM WATCHING IT, TOO." 

At the monitor level.  Beyond a player-device's control.

The PAL vs. NTSC video-refresh specs are 'beyond region encoding' - that was obviously too simple for the Sony-Philips camp to acknowledge its defeat.  But PAL vs NTSC Video Refresh (both pixels-per-inch and frames-per-second 25 vs 29.97) are different, too. 

This is a strange plague that only affects some North American flat-screens - those that have purchased that chipset (or more likely an additional code to their controller-firmware).  No flat-screens sold in the rest of the world - which all use the PAL video format - are affected.  Only in North America are we limited to what we can watch, when and where via disc.  And that "HDCP" lingo will mean the current streaming limitations can be extended to perhaps exclude OLDER devices ("if your device doesn't have HDCP controls, then we disallow this stream from being played").

If you're down to your last BluRay-dollar, you might save it for CANNIBAL WOMEN IN THE AVOCADO JUNGLE OF DEATH (1989) with Shannon ("Miss Softcore 1991") Tweed, Adrienne "Of course these are real!" Barbeau and Karen "They told I had to if I wanted to be a big star" Waldron. 

And Bill Maher.

(http://media.theiapolis.com/e5/h6O/i82P/mA86/r1/s1/t2/w50/z1C/cannibal-women-in-the-avocado-jungle-of-death.jpg)

This is the film that Orson Welles was once to have said, "I wish I'd never made movies at all" and "If I had died in childbirth, I'd have been happier."

The story has Dr. Tweed, PhD, in search of the mythic Piranha Women living in the uncharted wilds of the Avocado Jungle (actually, a field outside of San Bernandino) so she can talk them into moving to a reservation - a condo in Malibu. 

This film might qualify for Tiki-Status in some ways but, alas, the only monsters are the story, the dialog, direction and acting.

Unless one considers the support-garment construction requirements.  I'll leave the Tiki accreditation to Memph in this case.

The BluRay is scheduled for release Feb 9, 2016, so there isn't a lot of time to shovel a few extra blocks of snow, sell a few extra gallons of blood, sell that spare kidney, heart, etc - whatever you need to do to accumulate the small fortune this BluRay is likely to command. 

It's a cinch to avoid the Dollar Bin for at least 3 weeks.  For those who can sacrifice the outstanding HD quality of this film's original mastery, the DVD's already made it there.

Never watched Bill Maher on those late nights - there were a couple of those characters on that I constantly confused.  They weren't twins, exactly, but since they were on different networks, I never saw them together so, who knows - maybe they were the same person.

I always get Maher confused with Gerrit Graham

Or maybe it's the Jon Late-Night that confuses me.  Ah well... I have a feeling all of them made films that Orson might have preferred a much-earlier demise.

It's really cheesy 70's horror. Some like it, some don't. It's definitely creepy and a lot of fun IMHO. You may want to read some of the reviews here before you spend the money.

I feel the need to chime in on "Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things".

It has cheesy rough edges all around, and some less than spectacular performances.  It's what I think of when I think of ultra low- to no-budget horror in the 1970's.  There are plenty of things to criticize.   It might be good, if you plan to see it for the first time, to be aware that this is more or less a film by amateurs with a budget of almost nothing.  And not a whole lot of experience either.

But...

It's also VERY serious about trying to be scary, and it has a nightmarish quality, both during the long buildup and the zombie "payoff," that no other film has.  It has a very intense and uniquely unpleasant feel.

When I was a wee kid in the 1970's, I saw it on late night TV, and I would say it's the first "real" horror movie I ever saw.  It made quite an impression, and I've loved it ever since.

You can preview it on Youtube before you spend the dough....unless you really want to take the chance; I've always enjoyed it, still got it on VHS.

Well put neonnoodle. As god awful as the acting and production quality of this movie is most people like it for the reasons you stated. I have the old VCI DVD and the picture quality is pretty poor. I'm hoping that they put some effort into cleaning it up a little for the blu-ray release. The fact that this movie is even getting a blu-ray release is pretty amazing.

Neon, your review of this bad film is one of the reasons I love forums - to hear someone justify their preferences and favorites, and hopefully learn enough about those individuals so I can "consider the source". 

Your argument to "remember this is a low/no-budget film" is well-taken, but it's the other comments that make this intriguing.  You talk about the poor acting, script, direction but also mention that the focus is to make the film SCARY.  That's so important for filmmakers to convey: "Here's my goal.  I'm coming to the plate.  I'm pointing out where my homerun's gonna go - anything less, and I'll accept that error.  But here's my clear goal..."

I gotta appreciate that.  There aren't too many perfect films where the Goals are clearly indicated to the audience, and then those goals are delivered.  In the two cases I have in mind, neither film is great, but they hit their goals 100%.  What's not to appreciate about THAT?!!  After all, hitting the ball is the toughest act in Sports.  Hitting the home-run where it's intended is even more so. 

I'd have never given that film a second thought.  Now I have.  Now I might even look for it.  After all, it's still better than any film I could make!

What can I say about "Deep Red" that hasn't already been said. Since its announcement of impending release by Arrow Video a few months back it became the second most talked about release, the first being "Pieces". So all I'm going to say is......first off, the transfer work by Arrow Video is outstanding, and secondly, no true horror flick collection can be complete without it. I liked it a lot. Gory Glenn, I hope this helps. Now I'm off to pre-order "Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things".

I sure hope it's got RGB and RCA connectors on it so I can hook up the Coby VHS deck.  Then, we can watch those Universal tapes just like it was a scratchy TV on a wintry night.  The weatherman said we'd never hit 85 today so the night should be pure winter, here!  "Who's got the sunscreen?"

And on another not-a-monster monstrosity note, THE WHIP HAND (1951) is being released on Warners Archive for their new, $21.95 increased price.  Gag. 
http://www.amazon.com/Whip-Hand-Raymond-Burr/dp/B01B6WS91W/ref=sr_1_1?s=movies-tv&ie=UTF8&qid=1455277431&sr=1-1&keywords=the+whip+hand (http://www.amazon.com/Whip-Hand-Raymond-Burr/dp/B01B6WS91W/ref=sr_1_1?s=movies-tv&ie=UTF8&qid=1455277431&sr=1-1&keywords=the+whip+hand)

This is an interesting film for Cold War afficionados.  Supposedly, this was a burnt-offering sacrifice to Joe McCarthy's Congressional Hearings to prove not all of Hollywood were commie-pinkos.  The tale has our hero returning to a favorite Minnosota fishing lake to discover no fish lived anymore and many of the long-time residents had 'gone away'.  They were replaced by sinister Raymond Burr and a group of people who spoke in accents and looked out of the corner of their eyes, always squinting and acting threatening. 

Of course, these folks turn out to be commie-pinkos bent on world domination, and our hero and his newly-discovered sweetheart must save the world, starting on the shores of a small Minnesota lake.  As Judy Tenuda once said, "It could happen!"

Honestly, I don' t know how Raymond Burr was allowed to take the bar exam later on.  "Only in California" I suppose.

On a side note, I remain stunned that Warner's MOD strategy has earned more and more increased prices, and that the other studios have followed suit for these last several years.  I am glad they're willing to print up 'on demand' whatever DVD I want, when I want it, but since their supplier of DVD Blanks (JVC Taiyo Yuden) has announced the end of their optical disk manufacturing, we're left hoping that these MOD makers will use Falcons because there really isn't any superior disk-blanks - not for longevity's sake.  And even then, all of these will die a chemical-deterioration death sooner or later. 

This becomes the Real Horror Story.

Yes, those MOD discs are cool but it's a crapshoot, even when they're new--I've gotten at least one with errors on it that caused the disc to skip.

If you're buying MOD discs, you know you're some kind of aficionado who likes "rare stuff"...with such a limited audience that it just doesn't merit the glass-mastering replication process.   So you can give yourself a pat on the back for being a superior geek!!  Well, you have to feel good about SOMETHING, right?

It was actually considered as forbidden as porn back in the '80s.  :laugh:  Of course, most people have really mellowed on such fare in the last few years and most porn is considered almost mainstream now, probably more so than Bloodsucking Freaks.

I remember seeing it for the first time on video back when the VCR tape craze was in full swing during the '80's. I thought it was hilarious, though a bit bizarre. Some of the others who watched it with me were horrified. I still think it's a twisted comedy in some ways. :)

Shriek of the Mutilated DVD

Hoo boy!  What a weird movie this one is...
Title: Re: Latest dvds and bluerays
Post by: ChristineBCW on February 13, 2016, 06:15:13 AM
Neon and others... one thing that fascinates me about these late '60s and early '70s gorefests is how they understood they were probably drive-in fare - ie, low-rent, low revenue - during their filming.  This was understood in the B-Movie Studio-World for a few decades and this was a proving ground for young filmmakers on studio lots.  But in the '60s, you had weirdos like George Romero and John Russo sitting in a Pittsburgh dump, thinking he too could be a filmmaker.  AND THEY DID.   

We've been thru the bad film-wringers of H G Lewis, Ray Dennis Steckler - few of their films made it even into the upper half of drive-in's.  They weren't fit for even B-film classifications. 

But they opened the door for others who thought they could do that or better!  This 'emotional license' AND their ability to find funding (or praise the heavens, NOT!) brought in this low-class of films that sometimes spawned real gems by folks like Romero, Tobe Hooper, etc. 

For those of you alive and cognizant of filmmaking trends - was Corman sitting on a throne by that time, teaching these or vast numbers of other filmmakers the in's and out's of poster-art, marketing AND financing?  Were there little black books full of names for artists, printers and rich folks with money to burn being passed around?  I don't know if these filmmakers even got together, though.  I think not.  Not for years, at least.

So, Neon's SHRIEK OF THE MUTILATED (1974) is part of these wave of cheapo-productions, probably, aiming at low-rent drive-in's probably.  And the filmmaker's goals were Corman-esque?  "Make enough on this one to make just one more... just one more after that, too..."
Title: Re: Latest dvds and bluerays
Post by: neonnoodle on February 13, 2016, 10:42:54 AM
Well, yes, CBCW, I think a lot of the time you are seeing the feverish scrambling of the working-class craftsperson.  "If this is good enough we can sell it, and then we can go to the store and get stuff to make sandwiches with!"  And out of that impetus there often comes a weird sort of creativity, the creativity of necessity.   The movie was never meant to be art or even a respectable product--just a viable means of putting bread on the table.  And bless these people, decades later if luck has shone on them, you've got folks screaming for DVDs of those films, because they offer a different kind of entertainment.  I think when we enjoy these things, we celebrate the desperation and the ingenuity.  And the will to keep going, to succeed at whatever level is possible. 

In regards to "bad" films, you've heard someone say it or you've said it yourself:  "We've all made something awful at one time or another!"  And I think that sometimes we will sit down to watch a bad film and laugh at it and poke fun at the ineptitude of the filmmakers, but what we are really doing is celebrating (and accepting) our own imperfections and foolishness.  It's okay to be imperfect; it must be, because aren't we all?  And maybe that's why the experience of enjoying a bad film is so relaxing; because that's literally what the viewer is doing--relaxing the rigid criteria.

As someone has said, "How bad is a bad film REALLY, if you are sitting there enjoying the heck out of it?"
Title: Re: Latest dvds and bluerays
Post by: ChristineBCW on February 13, 2016, 12:50:57 PM
"The ingenuity OF desperation" - absolutely a fascinating motivation where "What else can we do?" meets "Can't think of nuthin' else". 

"OK, let's try it..."

As much as I can decry Steckler, Corman, etc, those guys were anything but thoughtless.  I can see "ingenuity" at every corner, every shadow, every fobbed-off extras job.  "We need two more extras - don't let the pizza guys drive off - offer them a chance at Hollywood stardom!"

We've been frequently pleased with the Millcreek cheapo sets of PD films - "50 Noirs" and "100 Mysteries" - sets like that.  They seem to have access to multiple PD prints and, while they aren't doing remastered (apparently), they seem to select the best-version available and putting those into the collections.

This deal they have with Columbia, reissuing their old DVD releases, means they'll be using the same masters. Only problem might be with compression. These Karloff titles were released 1, or 2 per disc on Columbia and now 3 per disc on MC.

Yes, exactly, and those will show up on older players whose ROM 'interpreter tables' were encoded to support original algorithms, and could not possibly exact best-play abilities from newest ones. 

The newest algorithms supposedly solve all of these issues.  In our oh-so-perfect world.

Of course, the proffered solution remains, "Just buy new equipment, then our new stuff works great!"

In my opinion, the directors cut of "Nightbreed" is much better than the theatrical version. It's a bit long, running at just over 2 hours but the extra scenes fill in the holes much nicer.

What can you say about a flick like this? I was expecting a low budget, settle for any talent that's willing to do this, type of a movie. Well I'm here to say it was very well put together.

What can you say about a flick like this? I was expecting a low budget, settle for any talent that's willing to do this, type of a movie. Well I'm here to say it was very well put together. From the acting, to the lighting, camera work, everything, I like this movie, some parts made me feel a bit uncomfortable but that's what its meant to do. If it didn't then there is something seriously wrong with you.  It's about snuff, and whether or not you believe it's out there. Also, this is a warning, it's not for kids.

This is film has become- Infamous. Not only is A Serbian Film f*****-up,
the film is disgusting beyond belief. Not that I am here to judge what
one watches in their privacy. But just a friendly warning when watching
A Serbian Film. Cannibal Holocaust has now become a Disney film compared to A Serbian Film.

I didn't find it all that disturbing; When there are "real monsters" in the world, a movie cannot begin to show anything that hasn't actually been done by some depraved human being at some point.  Just found it "shocking" for the sake of being so.

Real monsters in this real world, I totally agree. The parts that bothered me most was what he was made to do to his own son (trying not to be graphic and don't want to spoil movie for others that wish to see it). Also, his surprising brother lol. Let's not forget "new born porn". But getting back to real monsters, I guess I wish we all lived in a world where the worst only plays out on the screen. I hope I haven't offended anyone with the post of "A Serbian Film" and if I have, I apologize.

This Scream Factory edition of "Army of Darkness" comes with 3 versions of the film, theatrical, international and directors cut, all on 3 blu-ray disks. Not to mention a boat load of special features. If your a fan of the "Evil Dead Trilogy" then this is a must have. One more thing, there was a problem with one of the disks, can't remember what, but if you want to make sure you get the corrected copy, do what I did and order it directly from Scream Factory.

I gave up on this movie after I bought the Screwhead edition on Blu-ray. This movie has been re-released so many times on DVD that I finally stopped buying them. I have 3 or 4 different releases of this movie. I'd have to check. :P Nice cover art on this new one.

They can try for a Guiness record, but I have faith in Ridley Scott.  BLADE RUNNER hasn't been re-released in 4 years now, and it's about time for the Platinum Cuts of the Theatrical Directors' Version Special Editions. 

Supposedly, Ridley discovered sound loops that keep saying "Paul is dead" and he's going to make sure those are included, plus the sublimal scenes of 4 guys chasing Rachel across an Abbey Road crosswalk.   This should put him back in the lead for that Guiness Record of DVD Re-Re-Releases.

(And because it's Rachel, Hubby will be all over that purchase like spray paint on Daryl Hannah.)

Sean Young once laughingly complained that they spent 2 days on wardrobe changes for her gray-suited "interview" scene, all filmed and all reviewed by some of the honchos.  So, there's gotta be a few DVDs to be included in that next "All Wardrobes" version of BLADE RUNNER.  Then, there will be the European version of the All Wardrobes version, then the Director's Cut of the European Theatrical version of the American Uncut Version.  I think they can milk (or is that "bilk"?) at least a couple of more discs and releases out of those. 

I like BLADE RUNNER but I kept the VHS Theatrical along with the Dir Cut DVD, then we got that 4-disc version.  If I'm gonna pay for them, then "making fun of Ridley" should be part of the options, right?

Even though it had some real creepy parts and the director (M.N.S.) claims of having chosen his tightest cast ever, I still didn't care for the movie. I'm getting real sick of first camera/found footage type of movies, enough already.

For all of you that remember and loved the video store days then this flick is for you. It was a blind buy for me and I'm so glad I bought it.
The aliens are here and their trying to take over by brainwashing us through the VHS hit "Remote Control" and it's up to the very young Kevin Dillon to save us.
It's a limited print of 1000 but there's still some available. I got mine directly from the films director Jeff Lieberman. If you want one too, here's the link.....

Yes!  However... this does provide, uh, insulation for all other participants in that film's process.  "It's HIS film!  HE did it!  I just obeyed orders!  It's HIS fault!!" 

What's Jeff's retort to that, then?  "Oh yeah?  Mom always liked you more!!"

Grindhouse did it again with this new release of "Pieces". The transfer is outstanding, the bonus features I can't comment on as I'm viewing them right now but they are plentiful. It comes with a blu-ray, DVD, and a CD. I was lucky enough to put my pre-order in with diabolikdvd early enough to secure the puzzle which was limited to 3000 copies. I'd put up a photo but some people might get offended, it's the exact duplicate of the puzzle in the flick (nude woman splattered in blood). If any of you want to see it, and it's allowed, let me know and I'll post it.

I'm trying Mr. Gory Glenn lol. I'm still waiting for "CSPWDT" to show up in my mailbox, can't wait. As far as the audio sync problem, from what I've read some people wrote they didn't notice it, others wrote its a micro second and one wrote it ruined the whole movie for him. I have a feeling it's minor, next to nothing, and if it is, it won't bother me at all. When it does show up it'll be around the 8th to 10th in the watch pile line, that is if nothing shows up before it. I've been a bit mad at buying these days lol.

Oh man, that's awesome. Love that movie. I gotta pick that up too. Didn't realize they were putting it out on Blue-ray.

I remember when I was kid and found out about this movie and desperately wanted to rent it. There were only a couple of video rental places in the neighborhood and neither carried it. Really bummed  me out. Then oddly enough the local 7-11 started renting videos. I mean they carried like 2 or 3 dozen choices at most. For some reason they had "Monster Dog." It was so random, but needless to say we rented it. If you're not an Alice fan, you may not dig it, but otherwise great stuff.

It's your typical boy gets bullied story only in this one it's acted by a few well know character actors in the beginning of their carriers. If you don't recognize them you will when you get to the special feature interviews. Gore wise it starts off a bit slow but comes on real strong near the end, very well done imo. And can you remember the early days of Apple?

I have the excellent Image DVD release for A Virgin Among The Living Dead from their Euroshock Collection, but I had to get this Redemption BD for all the extra content for one of my favorite Franco films. The BD includes Franco's original director's cut Christina, Princess Of Eroticism mastered in HD from the original 35mm negative, audio commentary by Tim Lucas, the complete alternate cut of the titular film featuring zombie footage directed by Jean Rollin, original French and English dubbed, alternate erotic footage (5 mins.) featuring Alice Arno, 16 min. "Mysterious Dreams" interview with Jess Franco, 12 min. documentary on the various versions of the film, homage to Franco featuring interviews, photo gallery and trailers. I love this flick.  :)

Corruption, I have never even seen before so this will be a treat. I love anything with Peter Cushing. This BD/DVD Combo Pack from Grindhouse Releasing is loaded with special features: alternate scenes, historic documents, interviews, audio commentary, liner notes, poster art and still galleries, trailers, TV spots, radio spots, and other surprises. Can't wait to dive into this one.

Like you, I had never seen CORRUPTION before until I got the blu-ray last year. It certainly is a different film and well-worth seeking out for it's oddness. The special features are indeed a treat and make this release a really great purchase.

CORRUPTION is a wonderful contemporary addition for Cushing's film resumé.  It reminded me strongly of John Frankenheimer's SECONDS (1966 with John Randolph's mind is transferred into Rock Hudson's body into 1966's Swingin' LA Scene).

My idea of a "complete collection" is one copy of each movie, as opposed to all of the VHS tapes, all the single movie DVDs and all the double feature DVDs.

I like the Midnite Movies collection, and have just about all of them on my shelves as either single or double features. Their biggest shortcoming is the lack of special features for most of them. Usually you would get a trailer and the "Fun Facts" and that was about it. Some had an interview but not usually.

I like the other DVD series' special features a lot more, like the "Hammer Collection" from Anchor Bay, and the "EuroShock Collection" from Image.

88 Films again, did an excellent job on one of their latest releases. "Children of the Corn" trilogy which is number 13, 14 and 15 of their "Slasher Classics Collection" looks and sounds great. Part 1 has a very informative feature "The Life, Legacy and Legend of Donald P. Borchers" the films producer. After watching it I was even more creeped out by the Isaac character (John Franklin) because at the time of filming, that 12 year old looking little boy was actually 25, thanks 88 I didn't think I could be more creeped out by Isaac. Part II has the original work print which I thought was a nice touch and part III extras finish with the "Return to the Corn: The Reinvention of a Feature Franchise", amongst others.
Remember everyone, stay away from those damn creepy kids that follow the words of he who follows the rows, or something like that lol.....

If you haven't watched the directors cut of 1408 then you haven't seen the movie. It's just over 8 minutes longer than the theatrical version and a whole lot better in my books. This region B German edition has both cuts in German and English and is loaded with special features, not to mention great looking video and crisp audio. Also, you can rest easy, there's no forced subtitles, they can be removed with your remote control. This movie scared me the first time I watched it and I'm sure it'll scare me the next time as well. Over 50 people have died naturally or have committed suicide in this hotel room, what did Mike Enslin (John Cusack) expect, "The New York Rockettes".....
Remember, you'll need a region free blu-ray player to view this edition of 1408.

Legend Of Blood Castle is great Spanish Horror from Jorge Grau. I checked on the MYA DVD and it utilizes the "clothed" version. Memph, do you know if the Sinister Cinema version has the nude scenes intact, or is the clothed alternate version?

Currently I just have that film on a DVD-R that I burned from an old VHS tape. The picture quality isn't great, but it does have the nude scenes intact. This film is pretty obscure, and I'm not sure if there is a version available on DVD with the original nude scenes. I'm not perving out here, I just prefer films the way the director intended, not "softened" for the Spanish censors of the time. Of course, the optimal version would have the clothed scenes as a special feature the way the BCI/Deimos Spanish Horror DVDs did. Too bad BCI never got to this one.

Okay, thanks. Even if the SC version is the original unclothed version I doubt if the picture is much better than my homemade DVD-R copy. I really try to steer clear of that DVD-R stuff these days. I make an exception sometimes with the SC Drive-in Double Features, and some of the Cult Action releases, but that's about it.

So there's this guy, Buddy Cooper, he's always wanted to be in the movie biz. So over time he puts some money away and plans on enrolling in film school. Only he hears, "you can learn a hell of a lot more being on set, making a movie rather than going to any film school".
"Hey I got $86,000.00 saved, why don't I make movie". And that's just what this first time writer and director did, that movie was called "The Mutilator".
For a first timer this movie has a good back story and is done real well. It starts off slow but when the killing started I really got into it. Especially the one kill on one of the females, just you guess what he does with that infamous hook, real ballsie, I mean.....

I've found that most, if not all, of those Alpha releases of older films are of mediocre quality if not just plain crappy. They are comparable to the video quality one gets with most of the PD compilations from companies like Mill Creek.

That stated, I still collect the Alpha DVDs of the older classic (or not so classic  ;D) films, and have the vast majority of them. The Alpha releases have an important place in the history of monster movie DVDs, and the box art on some of them is very nice. I have most of my Alphas boxed up since the big compilations are much easier to store on the shelf.

Grindhouse Releasing has gone all out to give us the ultimate release of this grindhouse/drive-in gem. It contains 2 Blu-ray discs and a CD of the original soundtrack album remastered from the original studio tapes. The embossed slipcase is gorgeous, and the amount of special features is crazy. It has two versions of the film, commentary by Jack Taylor, special audio option- the Vine Theater Experience, interviews, feature length documentary- 42nd Street Memories, containing interviews with Sam Sherman and other exploitation icons, and many more. GR does it up right!

It was only available with the first few (3,000?) sold. You probably had to preorder to be sure of getting one. It's a cool item, but I'm more than happy just getting this awesome release for a good price. Amazon will have more in a few days, but they will cost $45. But, in a few years people might wish they had snagged it for 45 bucks.

As it is now, I am watching for the puzzle. This will be the third copy in
my collection of Pieces.

The only copy I had goes all the way back to the Diamond DVD release in 2000. Nice upgrade there.  :)

I remembered another copy I have of it on the Cult Horror Collection box set of 9 movies from St. Clair. That box set has some great flicks like Horror Rises From The Tomb. Killer bargain set on DVD.

I'm especially excited about having the 3 classic Barbara Steele Eurohorror films on BD with nice special features. I have a good DVD release of Castle Of Blood, but the other 2 were only represented on poor PD compilations, and equally poor Alpha DVDs, in my collection. Great Barbara Steele movies that deserve a great video release. Thanks, Severin!  :)

Is that DVD from the print with the bad video quality that has been making the rounds for the last few years as boots, or have we finally been blessed with a good DVD release of this classic Naschy flick? It would be grand if the original negative were discovered, or just a good quality print to source a nice release from. Where did you get it, if you don't mind my asking?  :)

I got it from a private dealer online, but this print is very nice, actually. It is subtitled in English and runs for an hour and 43 minutes(the unedited version's running time). I consider this a quality print but, to be sure, it is a booleg..however as the movie looks and sounds great, I'm pretty satisfied until a licensed version comes out. :)

I had Revenge... on it's own release, and 3 of the others on the Icons Of Suspense Collection, but I'm really looking forward to getting a good copy of Creatures The World Forgot on a legit pressed disc release. Also looking forward to getting Die! Die! My Darling! with Stefanie Powers which I have never seen.  :)

Since you're a H.G. Lewis fan I thought you might be interested to know that Something Weird have the Blood Trilogy out on Blu for around 20 bucks on Amazon.

(http://www.somethingweird.com/images/br0001_img.jpg)

I'm tempted, but I already have the Blood Trilogy box set. If I go Blu on everything I'll go broke, so I have to be selective. Some BDs aren't really an upgrade anyway, like that BD release for The Wicker Man. It's the freakin' cut U.S. version at 88 minutes. I already have the 99 minute version, with the original scenes, copied from an old Anchor Bay VHS, so that wouldn't be much of an upgrade for me. You have to be careful and do a little research before blowin' your shekels, dude.  ;)

Well, I was wrong! Turns out the Blood Trilogy on Blu has been cut to a little over 10 bucks! I just now ordered one along with some other movies from my "Wish List". Amazon makes it too darn easy to blow your money!  :laugh:

Thanks, horrorhunter. I bought the blood trilogy bluray, maybe a year ago. I had the VHS/DVDs, but wanted the bluray. Not only to add to
to my film collection, also to add to my Something Weird Video collection. ( R.I.P., Mike Vraney)

The price fluctuated from nearly $20 down to just over $10, and when I went back to check my order it had changed again to just over $11! I wonder why there are such wild and frequent fluctuations with Amazon pricing? Anyway, I grabbed it at just over $10 so that's cool with me.  :)

Also, I was reading some of the reviews for The Blood Trilogy Blu-ray and someone wrote that it isn't a true widescreen presentation, that they chopped off the top and bottom of the screen to make it look like widescreen. Have you noticed any evidence of that on your Blu-ray version of any of those three films, mars? I know anyone can post what they want to on those Amazon reviews, and I've seen some pretty goofy stuff, but this got me wondering. I don't know why Something Weird would do that, if in fact they did.  ???

When amazon doesn't have their own stock for sale, they use another seller as the default listing for that item. When that seller sells out, they pick another guy. That's why the price differences.

Two Thousand Maniacs seemed a bit off. In terms of aspect ratio.

Picked these up in Phoenix area recently. If you're ever in Tempe, AZ check out ZIA Record Exchange. Very cool place. I always stop  there during my annual Phoenix vacation. These were used at like $6-7 a piece. I think "Monsters" was like $10.

Wow! I LOVE Zia Records. A few years ago my band  played at a small club in Tempe, Az. Zia Records is a very cool place to buy vinyl, movies and other cool stuff. I purchased an original copy of the Stooges-Raw Power on vinyl. Zia cornered the market on OOP movies and etc.

Looking forward to this release on April 19th. Shout! Factory does great work. It's supposed to have a new HD transfer and it needed it. I have all previous versions and even the Gruesome Edition Blu-ray is grainy so big hopes this one cleans it up nicely. One of my all time favorite horror movies and for me Bill Moseleys best performance. Perfect combination of horror and humor. The underground lair set of the Sawyer family is awesome too!

 Exactly! I've seen horrendous violence get away with a PG-13 rating. Show one breast, and you automatically rate an R. Who are these sexless drones rating our movies? I've only noticed it getting more repressive in recent years. Watch some '70s or '80s horror and you get plenty of full frontal. Now, you only get side boobs (if you're lucky).

I wasnt interested in it so much for the color version as the original itself(I've never seen it) and the extras included, including the commentary.

Yeah, that's why I bought it. I'll get around to watching the color, one of these days.

Some very nice selections there!

I watched Monster Dog not too long ago, had always been curious about it after seeing it on video store shelves for so long; very entertaining (if silly) flick.

I'm excited to have gotten the BD for Monster Dog. I'm a big Alice Cooper fan and I've never seen it. May pop it in tonight.  :)

Hellraiser III is really underrated.

I disliked most of that film from the get go; saw it in the theater when it came out and for me it just took most of the atmosphere out of the series.  I thought the new Cenobites were boring and straight out of an MTV video and most of the movie felt like a music video too.  It and Bloodline were a mixed bag and if the two could be combined would make one hell of a 3rd entry in the series; remove some of the "MTV-ish" stuff from III and the space stuff from IV.  After that the Hellraiser series went downhill quick it seemed all the scripts were pre-existing and they just wrote Pinhead/the puzzle box into them to call them Hellraiser films.  To be fair I never bothered with Hellworld or Revelations.

Thanks, mars.

I'm splurging a bit since I have some extra money and trying to get some of the movies I've wanted for awhile. I've beaten down that Amazon Wish List pretty well. Also, I finally tracked down some of the really elusive films that I've been wanting for awhile thanks to Memph suggesting Trash Palace. I ordered 3 DVDs from Trash Palace that I've been hunting for years- Cross Of The Devil, The Witching (aka Necromancy), and Mark Of The Devil Part 2 (1973) with Erika Blanc. Also ordered a couple from Cult Action- Witchcraft '70 and the original uncut version White Angel... Black Angel, and Half Human and the original Japanese version of that (both DVDs are 2 discs). Glad to finally get these films.  :)

I'm trying to cut in to my movie list, in terms of spending. I had to re-buy  several DVDs/blurays, which is expensive. Finally....the movie list is starting to take shape. In the past week I bought some Image Entertainment/ Something Weird Video-

Smell of Honey/Brick Dollhouse(1965/1970)
The Doll Squad(1972)

I have the same experience when it comes to receiving DVD/bluray packaging. Thankfully there is a STAPLES near me that still carries
cases both for DVD/bluray. I didn't want to pay online prices or off-

Our Staples doesn't carry DVD/BD cases. Nobody else here does either. I ordered a box of 20 DVD cases and a box of 10 BD cases fairly reasonably off of eBay. If the mail carriers continue their vandalism at the current pace I'll have to order more way before I had intended to.

I think our mail system is great.  I can hand a personal letter directly to my carrier, and for less than half a buck, depend on the fact that a few days later it will be handed to the recipient on the other side of our large country.

DVD cases are made way too cheaply.  Not the fault of USPS.

To me, the mail system is 2nd only to our free public libraries.

I always get what I order, and what I send has always gotten there, so far. I joke about the Postal Apes but the USPS is very efficient. Unfortunately they are also efficient at mishandling packages to the point of ridiculous damage. The first Distinctive Dummies 1/6th scale figure I ever ordered (Count Yorga) arrived with a hole through the box right between the "G" and the "I" of the word "Fragile" like they were using it for a bullseye when practicing their staff strikes with a broom handle. Some of the stuff mail carriers pull is inexcusable. But, I know... I know... it could be much worse, and is much worse in many parts of the world. I guess we should be happy with what we have.

Just picked this up. No US Blu-ray release to my knowledge but the picture quality and extras are good. I didn't like this film that much when it was first released but I have a greater appreciation for it now. Plus it's got Ken Foree so you can't go wrong there.  :) The unrated version is better obviously. With this film it's like they tried to make Leatherface a franchise character like Jason or Freddie. They even gave him a custom chainsaw in this one that's pretty bad a** looking and paid homage to the second film with the "The Saw is Family" inscription on it. I also noticed that they made him more physically powerful in this film. In one scene when a couple is trying to drive away from him he rips the trunk lid off the car as they take off.

  This is my favorite of all the sequels. It's a little more grim & serious than the others. It's also a very impressive version of Leatherface. And, yes, that chainsaw is pretty bad-*ss. It has a longer blade than the others (size does matter).

I can see why you like it. I watched it last night and really enjoyed it this time. I think seeing the unrated version (for the first time) made a difference too. The 80's and early 90's were a high point for horror. I miss these kind of flicks.

I can fully understand why you didn't like it at first. The R-rated version is terrible. Some of it makes no sense without the missing scenes. The director had to do that because it wouldn't get distribution in the unrated form. I really hate censorship (and political correctness, for that matter).

Not over other Horror subgenres. It's just that there were a lot of fun and interesting Satansploitation flicks in the '60s and especially '70s. Those 3 I received from Trash Palace are very HTF and have been on my want list for years. Thanks to Memph making me aware of Trash Palace I finally found a place that has all 3. They are DVD-Rs, of course, but with some movies you take what you can get.  :)

Yeah, The Playgirls And The Vampire is fun. It's certainly no classic, but it's okay. The good points are that this film has it's place in Eurohorror history and I love the whole early Eurohorror feel, the castle setting lends cool gothic atmosphere, and the girls are pretty. The bad points are slow story, goofy English dub, and too much Walter Brandi. It's a shame that an actor with presence wasn't cast in the dual role of the Count and the vampire. Christopher Lee would have been fantastic. I don't know how a guy like Walter Brandi got cast as the lead in so many Italian horror films. I would like to see the original Italian language version with English subs, I think it would help. Anyway, it's a good addition to the collection. I try to get all of the Image Euro Shock Collection DVDs I can.

Got these today. When I checked the tracking and saw that the carrier was UPS I expected the worst. But, to my surprise Amazon shipped these in a BOX with 4 corners (instead of those fold-over corrugated things) and it was well packed to prevent the DVD/BD cases from slamming around. Everything arrived undamaged. The Frankenstein Created Woman BD even had the collector cards (which were left out of my Dracula Prince Of Darkness BD). As huge as Amazon is I don't understand why they can't always ship properly like this. My DVD/BD binge is nearly complete, so soon I can stop sweating these shipments. It's a shame collectors have to dread what damage might be inflicted on things they order. I'm happy to get some of these movies updated in my video library. It's worth the money and hassle.

Thanks, mars.

I already had a burned copy of the Slaughter Hotel disc that I bought from a b-legger at a con, but I wanted the proper release because I'm a big Rosalba Neri fan, and this film is a hot showcase for her charms. "nudge, nudge... wink, wink... a nudge is as good as a wink to a blind bat" and all that...   >:D :laugh:

I had the DVD for Bloodsucking Freaks but the Blu-ray is the most complete version so far. I can't help loving that inappropriate, politically incorrect, piece of cinematic trash.  ;D  Maybe that's why I love it so much.. it's just so wrong.  :laugh:  Even the BD case is weird.

As most of us do, I have these Hammer movies on DVD, but they are important enough to get the best available. There are no special features apart from the trailers and extra language and subtitle choices, but they look gorgeous.

The packaging is a cardboard holder with separate sleeves for each disc and a slipcase. This packaging is way too tight and makes it very hard to get to the discs safely. I removed my discs and put them in separate Blu-ray cases. If I had it to do over I would have just paid a little more and bought them all separately to start with.

Thanks, mars.

I was on the fence about these since there are no special features except the trailers, but the picture quality alone makes them desirable. The transfers are excellent. I just wish Warner would have given us some commentaries and other little extras.

In a perfect world we would have every Hammer movie on Blu-ray with all the bells and whistles, but unfortunately the rights are spread around to so many different owners that we just get a piece at a time. For Hammer maniacs we'll take what we can get. Now, if we could just get Curse Of Frankenstein and Horror Of Dracula all Blu-rayed out with a plethora of special features.  ;)

Some NEWS:

Kino Lorber to release Hammer's One Million Years B.C. (1966) on Blu-ray!

http://www.dvddrive-in.com/index.htm (http://www.dvddrive-in.com/index.htm)

No details yet, but I'm really looking forward to this. My only copy of this Dinokid classic is from AMC Monsterfest 2000. I taped it when it aired and then burned it to disc a few years ago. I never bought the 2004 Fox DVD because it's the truncated 91 min. US release and devoid of extras except for a restoration comparison (I like my Monsterfest version better).

Hopefully Kino will favor us with the uncut 100 min. UK version and lots of cool extras.  :)

This showed up today.

(http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/61G63S5QHZL.jpg)

This obscure Spanish Horror film (aka The Butcher Of Binbrook) from 1971 was released by Independent International back in the '70s and later released by Image as part of the EuroShock Collection. The English dub, and probably silly censorship cuts, have rendered this confusing to many, but I love these weird Spanish Horror flicks and I plan to dive in tonight. I recognized Victor Israel, a Spanish Horror mainstay character actor when I was checking out the disc briefly. I'm trying to complete the Image EuroShock Collection on DVD, and I'm getting close.

I ordered this used from an eBay seller and it arrived as I expected it would- only the generic DVD case needed replacing. The disc is "as new" and the outer sleeve and cardboard insert are fine. I replaced the case and it's good as new. It was cheap, too- $3.35 plus cheap shipping. In the old VHS days I never bought used tapes because the chance of them being damaged was too great, but used DVDs are usually okay as long as the sleeve is alright and the inserts/paper extras are present. Sometimes the DVD case takes a beating so it needs replacing. I bought a box of 20 DVD cases (and 10 BD cases, and 10 4-disc DVD cases) for that reason.

A Candle For The Devil (1973) is the uncut version of the PD It Happened At Nightmare Inn. It also features Lone Fleming which is always a good thing.

I bought that cheap 6 movie set for Night Of The Demon (1980) which is really a gory bigfoot movie. The Code Red DVD is OOP and pricey. That Code Red stuff goes OOP before you even find out about it sometimes.

Finally picked up one of the UniMon 30-Film Collections.

(http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/A1zqotCV2iL._SL800_.jpg)

Since I have the old Legacy Collections, and the Blu-ray set, I've been waiting for a very cheap price on this. I finally pulled the trigger at $55 with free shipping. At least all the DVDs are one-sided so that's an improvement right there. I mainly just bought it to add this new version to the collection, but I'll probably check out some of these discs over time. It's always nice to revisit the Universal Classics.

And, the 1999 Image Strangler Of The Swamp DVD (love Rosemary La Planche in this  :)):

(http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/61hah-0LFcL.jpg)

That pic is off Amazon. Anyway, the Strangler DVD is in the old heavy cardboard snap-over case and it's in "like new" condition. It's like going back in time 17 years and finding this on the shelf at Media Play. That finishes my 11 PRCs on DVD. Got this one for $12.99 with free shipping and bought the other 3 Image PRC releases new back in the day. Those things are a bit of a beyotch to find these days at a reasonable price.

There are ridiculous prices for them on Amazon and evilBay but you can find them cheaper with the occasional auction. I got extremely lucky finding that Strangler DVD in "new" condition for $12.99 and free shipping on a Buy It Now (it even arrived undamaged  :o). Just save some searches and be patient... that's what I did. Also, Strangler is available as a MOD for around 15 bucks. Haven't checked to see if the others are available as MODs. Too bad the originals are copy-protected.

Just checked Amazon out of curiosity and Devil Bat's Daughter and The Brute Man are available as MODs. The original DVD for The Flying Serpent is still very cheap.

Thanks for the info! Maybe I'll just go with the MODs on these.
Here's a question for any and all concerning the life of computer burned discs vs. the life of factory pressed discs. Just what are the life expectancies of burned discs, and pressed DVDs, and pressed Blu-rays?

From what I've heard the pressed DVDs are expected to outlast the burned discs, but are Blu-rays expected to outlast pressed DVDs?

From my own personal experience I have pressed DVDs from up to 17 years ago, and burned DVDs from up to around 12 years ago, and I haven't discovered any discs breaking down.

Another question is- Does playing the discs frequently hasten their digital info breakdown appreciably, or is it mostly a case of time causing the breakdown. As hot as a disc gets during play I assume the more it's played the shorter life it will have.

Anyone have any facts or theories regarding the answers to any of these questions?  ???

Nope! I'm sure there's research somewhere on the net about it, though.

I haven't had any burned DVDs for very long, but I've had burned audio CDs for over a decade that still play as good as ever.

I bought Zombie Pack 2 for Flesh Eater. The other two are classic Eurohorror Zombie flicks and I've had them for several years. I thought it was the old boxed pack of 3 sealed DVDs, but it's the 3 discs in one DVD case. It was nearly as cheap as Flesh Eater alone anyway.

The Embalmer/The Red Headed Corpse double feature is mainly for The Red Headed Corpse with Erika Blanc. It's the uncut film, and it was cheaper than a boot (and it's a pressed disc instead of a DVD-R). The Embalmer is an upgrade from the lousy Alpha DVD.

That Terror Tales Vol. 3 is one I didn't have. It features really awful Chinese flicks, but I buy them for the Eerie Pubs-esque artwork on the DVD cases when I can score them cheap. Still need Terror Tales Vol. 2 and Tales Of Voodoo Vol. 5.

I bought the other double feature for Dracula Blows His Cool. According to IMDb run time info it's the complete version, and it was cheaper than a boot. The version of Dr. Jekyll And The Werewolf on that disc is the crappy censored version that shows up on PD collections, but it's inconsequential for me because I have the Code Red version of the uncut movie.

Got this today.

(http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/611JX0PE9YL.jpg)

The DVDs for these are terrible, but the packaging is very cool for fans of Eerie Pubs monster mags. The back cover is an homage to the old Gayle House Horror Record ad that ran in so many comic books back in the '70s (complete with Gayle House Ghoul). These things were released a few years ago by VideoAsia and feature really bad Chinese horror films (and some Blaxsploitation) which are so badly presented the subtitles aren't even visible on the screen much of the time. As far as I know there are 9 of them, volumes 1-4 of Terror Tales and volumes 1-5 of Tales Of Voodoo. I still need a couple of them, but I refuse to pay over $10 for them so I may not complete the sets. The two I need seem to be more scarce and sellers want to jack up the price. They are a fun curiosity due to the packaging alone, but they certainly aren't worth very much because of the extremely poor quality DVDs.

Yeah, is there anything really new to a die hard Creature fan? I'll probably buy it, anyway, but if there's nothing special, I might wait till it's discounted.

Severin Films to release Doctor Butcher M.D./Zombie Holocaust on Blu-ray (2 disc set) on 7/26: https://severin-films.com/shop/doctor-butcher-m-d-blu-ray/

Doctor Butcher M.D. is a re-edit of Zombie Holocaust (1980) by an American distributor that caused a stir in 42nd Street Grindhouses. Both versions of the film are presented uncut and fully restored, and a plethora of extras are included along with a Doctor Butcher M.D. barf bag to the first 5000 ordered from Severin. I preordered mine. I love my classic monster movies but also have an appreciation for Drive-In/Grindhouse Classics from the '70s and '80s.

The second one is really great. It features 97 trailers (nearly 3 1/2 hours) of some cool and rare trailers, mostly monster movies. It also has a commentary track which is what I'm listening to currently. It's so much content I just do it in chunks. Good stuff here, mars. You would dig it.

No problem, friend.

I used to peruse a Border's book store in Knoxville every time I went to Gatlinburg a few years ago. I bought most of my Something Weird Video DVDs there, including several box sets. I probably paid too much at the time, but I've gotten a lot of enjoyment out of those discs over the years. I guess I got a bargain at that.  :)

The good old days of hunting for Something Weird, videos.
Borders, Tower and Virgin Records were the places to buy
those DVDs. Pricey at the time. Retailed around 14.99-24.99.
These days in the secondary market, Something Weird Videos retail for much more.

Naschy flicks are always cool.  8)

That Crimson Blu-ray should ship anytime. It streets today. Amazon says mine is "preparing for shipment", and the funds left my bank a couple of days ago. Crimson is one of the weaker Naschy films, but any Naschy Blu-ray with extras is certainly welcome. We've been deluged with Franco Blus of late (no complaints), and we're in a Naschy Blu drought. This gives me hope for more.

The Devil's Possessed and, especially, Hunchback Of The Morgue, are begging for the deluxe Blu-ray w/extras treatment, along with SEVERAL other Naschy films. We can only hope that a company like Severin gets the license for these Naschy gems and gives them rock star Blu-ray releases. The extras for the new Severin Blu release of Doctor Butcher, M.D. are mind numbing! Hopefully we'll eventually get our Naschys all Blued and blinged out.  ;)

Please give a review of this film. I am curious.
Here ya go:

Crimson, The Color Of Blood (1973) (aka Crimson, aka The Man With The Severed Head)

I had seen this before when I tracked down the Image DVD from their EuroShock Collection, and I thought it was pretty weak compared to Naschy classics like Werewolf Shadow and Horror Rises From The Tomb. When I watched the Blu-ray last night I watched the French version with the English subs then the English version with the commentary track. Well, it kind of grows on you. I still think it's one of Naschy's weaker films, but it went up a notch after seeing it in successive viewings. This is a Crime film with the added fantastic element of a partial brain transplant which works but leaves the recipient sporadically possessed by the previous owner of the brain chunks. Since the two in question are rival small-time gang leaders it leads to an interesting situation. Many Eurocult regulars are in attendance including Naschy, Silvia Solar, Olivier Mathot, and Victor Israel. The commentary by Richard Harland Smith is very good as he touches on not only this film and each of the actors involved, but also the whole gamut of Eurocult which he defines as any European genre film from the 1950s through the 1980s. Nice BD, and valuable commentary to bring one up to speed on Eurocult in general.

Great deal on that Dark Sky TCM DVD set, geez!

Man, a lot of DVD/BDs are getting blown out cheap now, but down the road these same items will be sought after by collectors and probably command some decent prices. It kind of reminds me of all the '70s monster comics that showed up in quarter boxes back in the '70s/'80s. Those same books started bringing big bucks 20 years later. I believe it will be a similar situation with many of these DVD/BDs in a decade or two. Discs are on the way out what with all the streaming and cloud storage. These items will be highly sought after in a few years. Buy 'em now and hang on to 'em.  ;)

This Hammer 3 Horror Classics DVD set arrived today. I already had all of these on the other DVD (&BD) versions, but since I didn't have this version and it was cheap on eBay I grabbed it. It arrived unscathed in "Like New" condition.

(https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/811EGUw6IuL._SL500_.jpg)

I like to collect the different disc versions of my favorite movies, and Hammer tops the list for me.

I have several VHS from back in the day but don't plan to collect them. Those are all stored away. I have a few 8mm films for the boxes, but I'm mainly a DVD/BD collector. I love the small disc medium for ease of storage, amount of content, and displayability of the cases. On top of all that they actually last at least several years. When I burned all of my VHS tapes to disc years ago I discovered that around 10% of them no longer played. Lost a lot of good (and expensive) video thanks to the tape medium. Thank goodness someone invented DVDs.

Dawn of the Dead is one of my favorite movies and has had multiple disc releases. I just picked up the Divimax DVD which was the only Region 1 version of the film I was missing. The smaller pics are the other versions I already had.

Yup, that was one of the big problems with tapes. Even if you don't play them they will deteriorate with time. While DVD/BD won't last forever they should last us a lifetime. And for some of us that's not that long to go.  ;)

Without Warning will cause you to break out in naked Snoopy dances. So make sure you are alone when you watch it (and indoors). The restoration is lovely and the film is a fave.

Burnt Offerings on bluray?! Wow!
You bet! Here's the review from DVD Drive-In.  :)

BURNT OFFERINGS (1976) Blu-ray
 Director: Dan Curtis
 Kino Lorber
A rare theatrical feature from one of TV's busiest producer/director of the 1960s to the 1990s, the modern gothic thrills of BURNT OFFERINGS arrive on Blu-ray in glorious HD, courtesy of Kino Lorber.

Married couple Ben (Oliver Reed, THE DEVILS) and Marion Rolf (Karen Black, TRILOGY OF TERROR), along with their 12-year-old son David (BEN star Lee Montgomery) rent an old mansion in country for the summer. One of the catches of the dirt cheap rental is that the owners' 85-year-old mother has to stay there, but it's only a matter of leaving meals for a woman that never comes out of her room (or that the audience ever sees for that matter). But the house seems to have an adverse effect on the couple. Ben almost drowns his son in some out of control pool play and has nauseating hallucinations of a grinning hearse chauffeur (Anthony James, THE TEACHER). Marion becomes obsessed with the antique items in the house, and keeps a close, possessive watch over the old woman's room at the top of the house. Young David is almost asphyxiated with gas, the couple's aging auntie (Bette Davis, WHATEVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE?) becomes increasingly ill, and their strange behavior becomes increasingly and unexplainably extreme. Why don't they leave this house? Quite simply, the house won't let them!

After his 1960s daytime soap "Dark Shadows" became something of a cult phenomenon, Dan Curtis became the king of the 1970s TV horror movie. Serving as producer and/or director on a number of the era's genre telefilms (THE NIGHT STALKER, THE NORLISS TAPES, DRACULA, DEAD OF NIGHT, etc.), Curtis' work was usually solid and exemplar of its type. By the mid 1970s, Hollywood was on a scare kick with decently budgeted thrillers, and with BURNT OFFERINGS Curtis would find himself producing, directing and co-writing his first theatrical film in nearly five years, since no one else wanted to take on the property. Based on a popular 1973 novel (I had to read it in school!) by Robert Marasco, BURNT OFFERINGS is not perfect (what film is?), but still is an absorbing haunted house movie with good plot devices, some nail-biting scenarios, notable photography and a first-rate cast.

BURNT OFFERINGS is kind of an update of the “House of Usher” story, in that the house is the real living monster and that theme is well drawn out here. Without elaborate special effects, the PG-rated film is able to convey a sense of unknown menace, and although the ending is predictable (maybe it wasn't back in '76), it's still quite eerie, commencing very violently. Reed and Black are good as always, and Davis is given a smaller sympathetic part, rather than the wicked bitches she was accustomed to playing at this time in her career. Great support is provided by Eileen Heckart (THE BAD SEED) and Burgess Meredith (THE SENTINEL) as the suspiciously eccentric sister/brother owners of the house, as well as character great Dub Taylor (CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAKE) as a handyman. Almost 40 years after it was released, BURNT OFFERINGS has not dated that badly at all, and is definitely worth revisiting for those who like old-fashioned type "haunted house" movies, especially in a spiffy new transfer.

Previously offered on DVD from MGM in 2003, Kino Lorber now releases the film on Blu-ray (it’s also being released on standard DVD using the same HD master). The 1080p presentation preserves the film’s original 1.85:1 aspect ratio and the remastered transfer looks impeccably clean. Parts of the film were shot with some kind of diffusion lens, so scenes which came off soft or hazy in the previous DVD are handled far better here. Detail and clarity are more than pleasing, colors are bold and distinct, and there’s excellent textures in the natural looking fleshtones, while black levels are solid throughout. The grain structure looks completely natural here and is only heavier in several brief nighttime shots. The DTS-HD 2.0 Master Audio track has clear dialog and there are no distortions or problematic background hiss (Bob Cobert's Dark Shadows-esque score also sounds delightful).

Extras on this Blu-ray include an audio commentary with Dan Curtis, Karen Black and co-screenwriter William Nolan, originally conducted for MGM’s 2003 DVD release (sadly, both Curtis and Black have passed away since that time). This supplement was originally orchestrated by film historian Darren Gross, but his voice is not heard in the final product. The commentary is a hoot but tends to jump all over the place with the participants often watching the movie rather than sharing recollections (Nolan at times seems to be interviewing the other two!). There are still some fun anecdotes to be found (Curtis talks about opening scenes that he shot but cut out, Black reveals that she was a few months pregnant during shooting, etc.), but it would have been great to have more detailed accounts of Reed, Davis, Meredith and others. Film historian Richard Harland Smith does the new second audio commentary, opening by describing the occasion as bittersweet since so many of the participants from the film have since passed on. Smith fills the long running time discussing such things as the origins of the term “burnt offerings”, background on the cast and their performances, and he makes comparisons to this film and others which also dabbled in the same “haunted house” or supernatural vein. He also points out differences between the original novel and this cinematic “cautionary tale” and notes that for viewers of a certain age, the chauffeur character compares with “The Tall Man” from PHANTASM and Freddie Krueger from A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET.

Kino has produced a trio of terrific new featurettes for this release. “Anthony James: Acting His Face” (17:33) is an interview with the veteran character actor (known mainly for his villainous roles), as exclaims how he got movie and TV parts based on his appearance rather than his thespian abilities. He tells some on-the-set stories on key films in his career (IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT and THE UNFORGIVEN) and on BURNT OFFERINGS, he tells of how well he got on with Bette Davis and that he would sit in her dressing room and chat with her for long periods of time (he would also go on to appear opposite the actress, as well as Christopher Lee, in RETURN TO WITCH MOUNTAIN). James, who firmly believes luck has a lot to do with how a successful acting career is made, also describes the difficulties he had getting his memoirs published. “Blood Ties: Lee Montgomery on BURNT OFFERINGS” (16:29) has the Canadian-born actor describing his auditioning for Dan Curtis and immediately getting hired. Montgomery who seems to have been a big fan of the genre as a child (he knew Burgess Meredith from “The Twilight Zone” and Davis from THE NANNY before working with them) had a great time making the film, describing Curtis as a “father figure” and Black as a “second mom”, and he also got on well with Reed (he recounts the famous pool scene), as he got initiated into his entourage (“Reed’s Raiders”) with the expected results (he got a bit drunk, causing his mother to confront the actor). Montgomery also shows his original shooting script, signed by the cast and crew! “From the Ashes: William F. Nolan on BURNT OFFERINGS” (13:21), Nolan tells how Richard Matheson set up his meeting with Curtis to do writing work for him, starting with THE NORLISS TAPES. He gives his spin on how the cast got on and behaved (and how Davis loathed Reed), what he brought to the screenplay (the character he created of the chauffeur who acted as the “guardian of the house”) and his reaction to the film’s negative criticism at the time of release (both Nolan and Montgomery also make note of the tragic suicide of Curtis’ daughter, which happened in the middle of the shoot).
 
Steve Senski is on hand for a “Trailers From Hell” segment, as he talks about the plot and that Curtis must have had a lot of clout to gather such a wonderful cast. There is also a “Portraits of Fear” animated still gallery as well as the original United Artists theatrical trailer. (George R. Reis)

(http://oi64.tinypic.com/wjj637.jpg)

And, here's a review of the Doctor Butcher M.D./Zombi Holocaust 2-disc Blu-ray from Severin Films courtesy of DVD Drive-In.



   
DOCTOR BUTCHER M.D. (1980) Blu-ray
 Director: Marino Girolami (as Frank Martin)
 Severin Films 
DOCTOR BUTCHER M.D. is making house calls once again on Severin Films' all-out special edition Blu-ray of the Italian gorefest turned 42nd street grindhouse hit.

A series of grisly thefts of body parts and organs from cadavers at a New York teaching hospital is covered up by Dr. Drydock (production designer Walter Patriarca, SYNDICATE SADISTS) and his colleague Dr. Lori Ridgeway (Alexandra Delli Colli, NEW YORK RIPPER) until a heart is torn out of a living patient. When the culprit turns out to be orderly Toran and he commits suicide when caught, Ridgeway and Drydock learn that Dr. Peter Chandler (Ian McCulloch, ZOMBIE) and his assistant George Happer (Peter O'Neal) of the Department of Health have been investigating a series of similar cannibalistic crimes in other parts of the country. Lori, also an anthropologist, notices that Toran and the body of another suspected cannibal share the same tattoo. She and Peter take that and Toran's dying words "Keto ordered it" to Lori's mentor Professor Stafford (writer/assistant director Romano Scandariato, THE ARENA) who reveals that Keto was a god to whom primitive cannibal societies on a Southeast Asia chain of islands made blood sacrifices, including an island named after the god himself. Chandler recruits Lori to accompany himself, George, and the latter's ruthless reporter girlfriend Susan (Sherry Buchanan, WHAT HAVE THEY DONE TO OUR DAUGHTERS?) on a trip to the islands under the guise of researching the primitive tribes. Although missionary doctor Obrero (Donald O'Brien, EMANUELLE AND THE LAST CANNIBALS) warns them against going to Keto, he equips them with guide Molotto (Dakar, PAPAYA: LOVE GODDESS OF THE CANNIBALS) and porters to take them to the island. When the boat's motor overheats, they are forced to stop at a closer island but it seems that they may indeed have stumbled upon Keto as cannibals start thinning out their numbers… and then the zombies show up.

Although the film's original Italian and English export title ZOMBI HOLOCAUST suggests a combination of Lucio Fulci's ZOMBIE (ZOMBI 2) and Ruggero Deodato's CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST – and, indeed, the success of the Deodato film seems a likely springboard for the fusion – the film was shot on leftover sets and locations from the Fulci film while recycling crew and other elements from ZOMBI producers Fabrizio de Angelis' (KILLER CROCODILE) and Gianfranco Couyoumdjian's (THE LAST HUNTER), and Joe D'Amato's earlier production EMANUELLE AND THE LAST CANNIBALS (1977) including composer Nico Fidenco (EMANUELLE IN AMERICA) – augmenting his score for the earlier film with synth cues and additional electronic effects – writer/assistant director Scandariato, his wife Silvana (NIGHTMARE CITY) on costumes, and editor Alberto Moriani (ZOMBI 3), and ZOMBI production designer Patriarca on sets and onscreen. An atypical credit for prolific comedy director Marino Girolami (SEXY SINNERS) – possibly contacted because his son Enzo Castellari (ESCAPE FROM THE BRONX) was offered direction of ZOMBI 2 – under the name Frank Martin (a variation on his Franco Martinelli pseudonym), ZOMBI HOLOCAUST actually gains much of its unintended comic value from Girolami's rather flat handling of the actors and extended scenes of body mutilation as executed by Maurizio Trani (DAWN OF THE MUMMY) and Rosario Prestopino (DEMONS). The cannibal scenes are fairly gruesome but, in trying to one up ZOMBIE's scenes of carnage, actually allow the viewer to assess the techniques of sculpting latex, clay, and spilling bovine offal. While ZOMBIE had the splintered eye as its setpiece, ZOMBI HOLOCAUST has a bit of nonconsensual brain surgery ("The patient's screaming disturbing me, performed removal of vocal chords"), more gruesome in its lead up than the actual reveal. The zombies – as sculpted by Trani without the supervision of Giannetto de Rossi (HIGH TENSION) and more in line with Trani's BURIAL GROUND designs – leave the flesh-eating to the cannibals and have little to do (other than one getting its head decimated by a hand-wielded outboard motor). As a zombie film or a cannibal film, ZOMBI HOLOCAUST is rather forgettable. On the other hand, as a grindhouse experience…

Released theatrically by Terry Levene's Aquarius Releasing in an unrated version that trimmed down some additional dialogue and transitions – inserting a grainy stock shot of a plane landing in place of the jeep ride through the village from ZOMBI – adding a new title sequence based around footage from the aborted Roy Frumkes-supervised anthology TALES THAT WILL TEAR YOUR HEART OUT and wiping Fidenco's score in favor of new keyboard cues and library music by Walter Sear of Sear Sound (who also rescored Fulci's THE BEYOND for Aquarius' 7 DOORS OF DEATH release), DOCTOR BUTCHER M.D. made it to videotape first through Paragon Video Productions in 1982 followed by a reissue on International Video Entertainment's "Thriller Video" line in 1986 (like their editions of BURIED ALIVE, 7 DOORS OF DEATH, and MAKE THEM DIE SLOWLY, Elvira opted out of providing introductions). The original export edition first became available legitimately stateside when Media Blasters' Shriek Show released an anamorphic DVD in 2002 with extras primarily focusing on the US version even though it was not included itself, as well as an interview with effects artist Trani as well as a deleted scene that appeared in the American version but not in the Italian and export editions in which McCulloch and Delli Colli traipse through a very un-tropical stretch of forest and run across cannibals while the heroine is trapped in a spike-lined pit. Shriek Show reissued the film on Blu-ray/DVD combo pack in 2011 that was roundly-panned for its flat and noisy, heavily filtered HD master. When 88 Films released it in the UK on Blu-ray, they performed a new scan of the 35mm negative and also included the feature-length cannibal cinema documentary "Eaten Alive: The Rise and Fall of the Italian Cannibal Film" (included stateside on Grindhouse's Blu-ray of CANNIBAL FEROX) and a fifty-minute Q&A with McCulloch.

For their two-disc Blu-ray edition under the title DOCTOR BUTCHER M.D., Severin Films not only performed their own new scan of the negative but also accessed vault elements from Levene's Aquarius Releasing to include the coveted U.S. theatrical version. Both transfers (1080p HD and in a 1.85:1 aspect ratio) are composites of a sort in that DOCTOR BUTCHER (81:46) uses the new Italian scan for the body of the film combined with the footage specific to the Levene cut while the ZOMBI HOLOCAUST version runs nearly five minutes longer (88:57) than the Shriek Show (84:05) and 88 Films transfers (84:01) because it integrates from the DOCTOR BUTCHER version the aforementioned pit sequence which is from a film source but one with some jitter, speckling, and some faint vertical scratches (although the added sequence actually does seem better-photographed than the rest of the film).

The ZOMBI HOLOCAUST footage looks better than it ever has over here with the grain giving the poorly-photographed film's long shots a sense of depth and the jungle scenes and zombie close-ups a sense of texture lacking on the Shriek Show DVD (white specks abound in the darker scenes). The TALES THAT WILL RIP YOUR HEART OUT footage is quite expectedly grainy from the film stock and underexposure but looks better than the Frumkes outtakes elsewhere on the disc (since Frumkes supplied Levene with the negatives) while the other Aquarius-specific insert of a "TERROR GRIPS CITY" newspaper headline added to the opening looks as crisp as one would expect of such an optical (most amusing is the DOCTOR BUTCHER title card which is not an optical but a piece of artwork with real smoke blown in front of it). The opening credits on the earlier Shriek Show DVD were computer generated recreations of the titles on a still frame. The ones on the ZOMBI HOLOCAUST version here start off on a freeze frame but the grain of the image starts swimming and a vertical scratch starts running under the producer's credit (perhaps it was always like that or the part of this sequence on the negative might have lost some at the top due to damage). DOCTOR BUTCHER M.D. is featured on the first Blu-ray disc with a reasonably clean English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 mono track as well as an uncredited LPCM 2.0 variation. ZOMBI HOLOCAUST features the English dub as a clean DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 mono track that nicely conveys the throbbing and thumping of Fidenco's main theme along with an Italian LPCM 2.0 mono track. While the lack of subtitles for the Italian track is regrettable, the track sounds rather muffled at some points and the English track features the vocal work of some familiar dubbing artists like Edward Mannix (Jack Hedley in NEW YORK RIPPER), Susan Spafford (Janet Agren in CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD), and Pat Starke (Lorraine de Selle in CANNIBAL FEROX).

Disc one's extras are also geared towards that version of the film. In "Butchery & Ballyhoo" (31:35), Aquarius Releasing’s Terry Levine discusses how he got into the movie business through nepotism with his parents owning a chain of theaters in London before being bought out and setting up shop in Buffalo, New York. He discusses the company's popularity with independent producers because they could ensure playdates on 42nd Street and in the boroughs. He discusses the company's experiences with softcore and hardcore films like MAN & WIFE, HE AND SHE (released on DVD by Vinegar Syndrome), and the Northeast rights for DEEP THROAT before the film's supposed real backers seized the film, as well its popular martial arts (BRUCE LEE FIGHTS BACK FROM THE GRAVE) and women-in-prison pickups (BARBED WIRE DOLLS) before discussing the ballyhoo used to promote DR. BUTCHER M.D. and MAKE THEM DIE SLOWLY (while ribbing Severin about wanting to remaster any of them in HD) and the process of coming up with ad campaigns (United Negro College Fund voice actor Adolph Caesar narrated the trailer for DR. BUTCHER and many others including BLACULA and DAWN OF THE DEAD). He also notes that he despised Joe D'Amato's BEYOND THE DARKNESS which he was "bullied" into buying by an Italian sales agent. Although he performed the bare minimum in promoting the film as BURIED ALIVE with just a monochrome one-sheet and newspaper ads, it ended up doing very well. He also discusses 42nd Street as it once was and suggests that Giuliani's clean-up effort had more to do with capitalizing on real estate taxes for the large area than moral outrage.

"Down On The Deuce: Nostalgic Tour Of 42nd Street" (21:55) is a rather absorbing discussion of the area as it once was by Frumkes and Temple Of Shock’s Chris Poggiali. As passersby gawk at them and react to snippets of their discussion, the two walk down 42nd street pointing out the locations of earlier theaters intercut with the films that once played there and trash like FROZEN and Lord of the Dance that play there now. They also discuss their youthful experiences in the grindhouses where they were the weirdoes because they actually went there to see the shows rather than looking for places to sleep, hook up, or get hooked on. The featurette labeled "Frumkes’ Segment from the Unfinished Anthology Film TALES THAT WILL TEAR YOUR HEART OUT" (8:07) is actually a series of outtakes from the film including the three minutes used in DOCTOR BUTCHER M.D.'s title sequence featuring Frumkes himself as the zombiefied version of a serial killer killing unwed mothers along with a few other excerpts including Wes Craven's bit with a zombie cowboy walking down 42nd Street and the resurrection of punk rocker Snuff Maximus.

"The Butcher Mobile" (12:33) is an interview with Gore Gazette editor Rick Sullivan who discusses the fanzine scene in the late 1970s and early 1980s that consisted of himself, arch enemy Bill Landis of Sleazoid Express, and professional Michael J. Weldon of Psychotronic. Sullivan discusses his involvement with The Butcher Mobile – on which Sullivan was the barker while nurses took the blood pressure of passersby and a doctor stabbed a male patient repeatedly – and how his decision to sell videos through his gazette got him in trouble when someone requested the adult videos Traci Lords made when she was supposedly underage. In "Cutting DOCTOR BUTCHER" (10:12), editor Jim Markovic (FORCED ENTRY) discusses Levene's methods for making some of the foreign pickups seem more American along with himself and credited "executive producer" Ron Harvey. He recalls cutting the film down along with its dialogue-only track and then sending it off to Sear Sound for scoring and sound effects. He also has some amusing anecdotes about carrying a lead pipe and taking self-defense lessons from Ron Van Clief (BLACK DRAGON'S REVENGE) just to walk down 42nd Street to get his paycheck from Levene. Also included on the first disc are "Experiments with a Male Caucasian Brain (…and other memories of 42nd Street)," an essay by Gary Hertz (the victim on the Dr. Butcher Mobile), the DOCTOR BUTCHER theatrical trailer (2:44), and two video release trailers (1:14 and 0:56, respectively), the latter as seen on the Thriller Video release of 7 DOORS TO DEATH.

Besides the original ZOMBI HOLOCAUST version, disc two includes an interview with McCulloch titled "Voodoo Man" (8:14), which is short because he has never seen the full version of the film. He discusses his early acting roles, glossing over a number of credits but conveying how a role in COLDITZ netted him a bigger role in SURVIVORS which brought him to the attention of the ZOMBI's producers. He regards ZOMBI HOLOCAUST as the more enjoyable shooting experience and regards CONTAMINATION as the silliest. He also briefly touches upon his role in Freddie Francis' THE GHOUL in which he got to look dashing in a dinner jacket through most of the film before a gory end. In "Blood of the Zombies" (23:02), late effects artist Rosario Prestopino (DEMONS) discusses the film and gets a few details wrong (citing McCulloch as an American actor who had a hand in Girolami's directorial decisions) but goes into detail about the mechanics of the effects, including de Rossi's patented throat slashing effect as well as the brain surgery sequence (along with O'Brien's trepidation over performing the cuts with a saw even though it was not actually running). Whereas Shriek Show's interview with make-up artist Trani found him sounding a little put off discussing the title, "Neurosurgery Italian Style" (4:36) finds him discussing the brain surgery effects sequence and fondly remembering Prestopino as a creative and serious technician.

In "Filmmaker Enzo Castellari Remembers His Father Director Marino Girolami" (7:46), Castellari (ESCAPE FROM THE BRONX) recalls how his father was a boxer who retired at twenty with a European championship before going to study cinema at the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia. He got onto a set as a professional masseuse hired by Anna Magnani for her polio-stricken son, and gave the actress the story for the film that would become THE PEDDLER AND THE LADY by Mario Bonnard. Girolami would serve as assistant director on a handful of films including American co-productions (THE THIEF OF VENICE) and directing Sidney Salkow's FUGITIVE LADY uncredited. Castellari mentions that his father favored the comedy genre – directing a long string of them in the 1950s – and he was not aware that his father was directing ZOMBI HOLOCAUST at the time because he was working on his own projects.
 
Most welcome is "Sherry Holocaust" (24:04), in which actress Buchanan reveals that she was born in Mississippi and grew up in Louisiana. She was just out of high school when a location manager friend of her mother's asked her to fill in for a local production secretary on the New Orleans unit of Tonino Valerii's MY NAME IS NOBODY since she spoke French and Spanish. She was asked to continue working on the film when production moved to Spain and then would go on to Rome where actor Giancarlo Giannini (BLOOD FEUD) helped her get into modeling. She then discusses her various roles starting with WHAT HAVE THEY DONE TO OUR DAUGHTERS? through ZOMBI HOLOCAUST which she found difficult for the film's infamous effects scene. She left filmmaking after she learned that hardcore inserts had been added to EMANUELLE AND JOANNA and that she was now getting offers for porn films (she has since done some bit parts in CRAWLSPACE and Tinto Brass' CAPRICCIO). The "New York Filming Locations Then vs. Now" (3:03) featurette compares the locations now to the way they appear in the film and attempts to replicate the camera movements (albeit, without the heft of the 35mm camera). Before his acting career took off, McCulloch cut a folk single in 1964 called "Down by the River" (2:40), and it is included here over a still gallery of the actor. Disc two also features the international trailer (4:16) and the German ZOMBIES UNTER KANNIBALEN trailer (3:12). The cover is reversible (with ZOMBI HOLOCAUST artwork on the reverse) and the set is limited to 5000 copies. Those who order directly from Severin Films will also get a DOCTOR BUTCHER barf bag.

                                                    Witchcraft


Many unusual things are hitting Blu-Ray, but seeing these being issued with commentaries is interesting.

Amazon is already taking pre-orders.

Finally scored a Image I Vampiri DVD from 2001.

This has been OOP for awhile. I purchased this new and still sealed from an eBay seller for a great price, and he even shipped it in a large box so it arrived undamaged.  :)

While not technically a horror film if you haven't seen the HBO film "Citizen X" I highly recommend it. The true story of Russia's first serial killer. 52 dead and it took 8 years to catch the killer mainly because of bureaucratic red tape and the fact that those in power believed this could never happen in Russia, a decadent western phenomenon as one put it.  Stephen Rea, Donald Sutherland and Max Von Sydow are incredible in this film. A highly compelling film that I come back to again and again. Available from Amazon for $5.98, DVD full frame only since that's how it was shot.

Yes, That's it. I wonder why the home video release isn't wide screen? It's free to watch with Amazon Prime. I'll have to check and see if it's widescreen there.

I found a review of this movie (on a horror site no less) and they do state it was released on DVD in it's original aspect ratio of full frame. As for the review very high praise from the reviewer and commenters. The acting is phenomenal. Donald Sutherland won the Golden Globe for best supporting actor in 1996 for this film and Stephen Rea won best actor at the 1995 Cairo International Film Festival and Sitges - Catalonian International Film Festival.

I just finished watching the wide-screen version on YouTube.  The image looks beautifully composed for that format.

This film was made just on the cusp of TV's transition from 1.33:1 to 16:9.  I suspect the movie was filmed to be viewed in either aspect.  There are quite a few made-for-TV shows from around then that have since become available on DVD.  Some of them were originally broadcast in 1.33:1 because that was what most households had at the time and so many of them hated the black bars at top and bottom.  Interesting to see that a number of the shows have since been released on DVD in a wider, 1.78:1 format that yields more information than was originally broadcast.

They should have given this DVD a theater-style matting.  Maybe there are licensing complications about altering the "original broadcast" version without paying an additional fee.

Thanks for pointing it out, Gory Glenn.  Good movie with a really great cast.  This should have been released to the theaters.  The acting is very subtle and understated - it would have come across very well on a huge screen.

That all makes sense. Glad you enjoyed the movie. It really should have had a theatrical release. Just ordered "Child 44" based on the same story. Most agree it's not as good as Citizen X but I was curious enough to check it out especially for the 7 bucks the DVD cost.

Here's another one that will be released in time for Halloween this year.

(https://c1.staticflickr.com/9/8859/28524685792_f2d579ea17_c.jpg)
                    An American Werewolf In London - Restored Version - Blu-Ray - 2016

                                         Scheduled for release on Sept. 27, 2016. 

Not sure just what is being "restored" about this one.  I have the previous Blu-Ray and the colors are very contrast-y and everyone has too ruddy a complexion.  Hope that is being addressed.  Nurse Alex is a pale-skinned English girl who should not look so desert rat sunburned in the shower scene - and Jack's corpse is so dark that too little detail is visible during his visit to David in the hospital and in the theater scene.

Anywho, here is the eBay listing for pre-orders:

https://www.amazon.com/American-Werewolf-London-Restored-Blu-ray/dp/B01IP2X72W/ref=pd_ys_sa_2644980011_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=3KZDY4F62JY9GA6R33HX (https://www.amazon.com/American-Werewolf-London-Restored-Blu-ray/dp/B01IP2X72W/ref=pd_ys_sa_2644980011_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=3KZDY4F62JY9GA6R33HX)

Can't wait for buyers' reviews of this one.  I love this movie.

When James Cameron was at Comic Con promoting a 30th Anniversary Blu-Ray edition of "Aliens", he also mentioned two other up-coming projects.

"Terminator 2: Judgement Day" will receive an October 3D theatrical release.

And "Abyss" is targeted for an early 2017 Blu-Ray release - and possible 4K disc release.

Thanks guys. Yeah H2 includes "Terror in the Aisles." I'm pretty psyched about that. When I was in like 5th grade, I would rent that VHS tape all the time. Back then you didn't have much to choose from in the horror section, so "Terror" was pretty important.

Anybody know what films are included in the 8-disc set?

https://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00GTTP8BC/thedigitalbit-20 (https://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00GTTP8BC/thedigitalbit-20)

Set to be released on August 23, 2016.

Amazon's pre-order price is $70.00.  I have seen it listed elsewhere for as much as $124.00.  No one has listed how many and what titles are included.

Looks like this is a re-issue of something that came out in 2014.

Here were the titles:

DR. GOLDFOOT AND THE BIKINI MACHINES, DR. GOLDFOOT AND THE GIRL BOMBS, TALES OF TERROR, PIT AND THE PENDULUM, THE MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH, MADHOUSE, THE ABOMINABLE DR. PHIBES, SCREAM AND SCREAM AGAIN, FROM A WHISPER TO A SCREAM, THEATRE OF BLOOD, HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL, THE LAST MAN ON EARTH , SHOCK!, THE BAT, MOOCH GOES TO HOLLYWOOD.

I have not seen any of the short films on the Melies disc, and so I'm sort of excited about viewing those.

No way, don't buy that set. I bought it for less than $20 at Best Buy a few years ago. For that price it's a good bargain, but $70 no way. You're better off buying the VP Collections on Blu-ray. It's not a bad deal for the price I paid it because you get a few movies not on the blu-ray sets like Madhouse, Theatre of Blood, The Bat and Tales of Terror. But at $70 they're crazy.

The "Beauty and the Beast" is a Criterion disc, and the Melies disc is from Image.  Image had a "Vol. 1" also, which has a lot of assorted shorts by different early filmmakers, and that one is pretty good, too.

I'll have to check amazon for the Melies disc.

If no one else posts details by then, I will let everyone know when I get my copy - I have already pre-ordered mine.

I won't be able to evaluate the 3D.  It was the only feature I opted out of when I got my TV.  It would have been another $125.00 and I don't even like 3D.

Is it like all the other 3D I've seen, where everything looks like a flat cut-out standing at different distances from the camera?

Not really. I've seen it in 3-D before, but it's never looked this good (plus it's in wide-screen unlike the regular version).

Undying Monster - 1942

Kino Lorber:  Audio Commentary by Film Historian Tom Weaver | Concerto Macabre: The Films Of John Brahm Featurette | Restoration Comparison | Trailers

Release Date: November 22, 2016

Amazon is taking Pre-Orders.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/ref=pe_172280_208156990_pe_r2p4-img/?ASIN=B01LHC8T2A (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/ref=pe_172280_208156990_pe_r2p4-img/?ASIN=B01LHC8T2A)

The Amazon listing says it is in "widescreen".  I suppose that translates to the original 1.37:1 aspect ratio.

Nice treatment for this fun film.  I have always loved the foggy atmosphere in this one.

Heck yeah I did! Only $9.99. One of the more interesting horror/suspense films in last decade imo.

I like that it's set in Motor City. I understand that "Don't Breathe" takes place in Detroit too. I gotta check that out. I was in the Motor City for a long time (actually just moved back out West). I love Detroit Rock City. I did a lot of field research there on gangs/at-risk youth. Anyhow, my point is Detroit can be pretty scary place depending on where you're at. So it's great setting for these kinds of films.

"Don't Breathe" takes place in Detroit and is excellent as well. Those are my two favorite films of the last few years.

COUNT DRACULA'S GREAT LOVE(1972)

Blu-ray & dvd double disc great release of a very nicely cleaned up print. Paul Naschy is the Count masquerading as a sanitarium doctor while trying to obtain the right sort of blood to revive his vampire daughter. Long available only in an inferior dvd release this comes with a commentary from Naschy himself along with other extras. Worth checking out for fans of Eurohorror and Naschy films!!

I just got through watching the Best Buy Blu-Ray of this movie.

It has the same extra features that are found in the DVD issue and the BLU-Ray image doesn't seem to be a tremendous improvement.  The big deal is it has the 3D version included.

I did notice one odd thing:  At the 55:22 mark Carlson is seen walking off alone into the desert to find Rush, who had just been kidnapped by the Xenomorph.  The picture fades to black and fades back up with Carlson, looking tired and cold, leaning against a rock.  That is just as it appears in the DVD, with one exception.  On the Blu-Ray, we are shown a card that reads "Intermission" in the middle of the blackout.  Never saw that before on any version of the film.

Was there ever a time when this 81 minute film had an Intermission at the 55 minute mark?  I can't recall ever seeing it in the theater when it was new, on TV, or any home video version I have ever seen.

Anyone?

MONSTER OF PIEDRAS BLANCAS seems like a great print-quality on the DVD.  I had forgotten that this was a fairly dreadful film, and certainly showing the monster's body in longer timings lessens just about any horror beyond "How can he WALK in that outfit?"

I am surprised that Les Tremayne is listed in one of the starring credits, whereas the sniveling lighthouse keeper John Harmon appears in more scenes, albeit fewer lines, I suppose. 

The town constable, Forrest "Don't hang me by my ears, Ma!" Lewis is also splitting dialog and screen-time with Tremayne, but obviously the Don "Never a teen idol" Sullivan and Jeanne "Puff out my chest" Carmen were the hopeful ticket-draws. 

I think, "NO" was the ultimate answer to that pipedream.

This should have been a much better film but I wonder if the weirdo-looking humans (Sullivan, Jeanne, Forrest) were stranger looking without makeup than the monster was in full costume.  That can't be a good formula for success.

Hi everyone, I'm a long time lurker but this is my first post.
As far as the intermission card from ICFOS its there so they could do a reel change at that point in the theatres.
They used both projectors for the 3D and the largest reel only held about 50 minutes of film.
I got that information from the CHFB earlier today.

They said something about changing reels in the commentary or extra featurette - I don't think they really explained why, or I forgot.  They screwed up and left it in the 2D version on this disc.

Looks like you can earmark favorite scenes with a beginning time and ending time.

Then the chosen scene can be recalled from the menu a latter time - just like going directly to a "Chapter".

Went to Best Buy today and picked up It Came From Outer Space and The Ghost And Mr. Chicken on Blue Ray today for $7.99 each. Hopefully have some time to watch them soon.

"The Ghost and Mr. Chicken" is a pretty good light comedy with a horrible musical score.  It is so badly over done.  I would so like to see someone redo the score with something that doesn't give you an aural jab in the ribs with every punchline.

I have the same problem with the Belushi/Ackroyd comedy "Neighbors".

I'd like to have your opinion.

You axed for it!

Vic Mizzy's score is one of the best things about "The Ghost and Mr. Chicken"! I can't imagine the movie without it! Knotts certainly liked it. Mizzy scored every movie Knotts' did for Universal after that. ("Ghost" was the first.) Many composers tried to copy the Mizzy "sound", but couldn't do it. Besides his many feature film scores (for Knotts, Wm Castle and others), he was the go to guy for TV sitcom themes, including "The Addams Family" and Green Acres". There would be an uproar from fans of "Ghost" if somebody tried to replace the score. It's a classic!

Well, if there weren't millions of deluded people we wouldn't be having an election.

Not political - just a comment on the phenomenon of differing opinions, (and wrong ones like yours),  in general.

So, do you hate the ADDAMS FAMILY theme, too?
Title: Re: Latest dvds and bluerays
Post by: Monsters For Sale on October 29, 2016, 11:37:25 PM
So, do you hate the ADDAMS FAMILY theme, too?

Not particularly.  I didn't comment on it.  Half hour TV shows are only about 20 minutes of sketch material hacked into segments by commercials - besides, end themes can be fast-forwarded through.  Uninterrupted feature length films are different animals.

I think some films are actually improved by overwhelming scores - like "Back To the Future" or "Raiders of the Lost Arc".

I just think Don Knotts was overpowered by the music in "Ghost".  I wish there were an option to turn the music (and sound effects) down and not mute the dialog.

And, did I mention, you are clearly wrong - whereas I am manifestly correct?  (As always.)

I have a feeling you are going to be all alone in that opinion, around here!  ;D  I thing most people love the "Chicken" score!  :) 

Let's here it for Mr. Mizzy, folks!

Found the Wal-Mart glow in the dark monster releases last night.  hey had a display at the front near the registers. 

I ended up getting American Werewolf in London, but I was VERY surprised to see that they did a Frank Langella Dracula.  I may get that also, because I've never seen it, and never seen in in a store before.

Although the Blu-ray print seems to be from the MGM film releases, the quality of the film's enhancement is very nice. I've noticed a few things watching it that I didnt in the past due to a bit of murkiness during the night scenes on the old dvd double-feature. Certainly worth taking a look and the commentary from Steve Haberman was very informative as well. Made me seek out the Twilight Time Blu-ray of COUNT YORGA VAMPIRE and I just ordered that this weekend. :)

Always check Twilight Time's site before buying.  They usually have a number of their titles discounted.  In my last order I bought all discounted titles - one for $7.95.

Elsewhere, all of their discs are $29.95.

Got it from Barnes & Noble on sale for $10.00..

The print looks very lurid and well-defined in Blu-ray. The commentary is the same from the Midnight Movies disc however the radio spots, new interview with Madeline Smith and documentary on the making of the film are all unique to this release. Ingrid looks fantastic in this upgrade to be sure!! :)

It's the new 2 disc Deluxe Edition Blu-ray from Grindhouse Releasing. It's a new high def restoration of the original uncensored director's cut. Like all GR releases it has a ridiculous amount of extras including I Eat Your Skin the best it's ever looked and another bonus flick by director Durston. The first 3000 got the Horror Hypo premium which I have proudly displayed on my shelf.  :laugh: I preordered mine through Diabolik to ensure that I got the Hypo.

That Horror Classics Vol. 1 set is nice but the packaging is so tight it's hard to remove the BDs without handling the business side of the discs. I repackaged mine in a 4-disc case and scanned and copied the original packaging to adorn the new case. I'm keeping the original packaging, of course (I'm a stickler for hanging onto all this stuff  ;)).

I'm really looking forward to finally seeing this movie!! Maybe they'll find THE CAT CREEPS, or THE MONKEY'S PAW, next!?

I'm really looking forward to finally seeing this movie!! ...

It is mostly slow and talky, but I think it did for water disaster effects what King Kong did for giant ape effects.  Impressive for 1933.

The Blu-ray is a vast improvement over the dvd...I have the dvd as well and the film looks so much better on Blu. Plus it also has a great commentary from director Paul Maslansky and interviews with most of the cast as well as the trailer. You will probably be happy with the result. :)

Stopped at Zia records in Phoenix area. Picked up some used blu-rays. "Carrie" and "30 Days" were upgrades. The other three are new additions.

Just changing the title of this thread, a bit, to "Latest DVDs & BDs in My Collection" to better distinguish it from "New Blu-ray/DVD Releases".

(Thanks for the suggestion, Adam.)

It looks totally pristine! Except for the '80's fashions & hairstyles, you would think the film was made yesterday; it looks that good! Great behind the scenes documentary on the film and commentary from director David DeCoteau and actress Brinke Stevens for extras. It came out in October 2016 and was exclusive to Full Moon's company, however, I found it for $12.00 on Ebay last week.  :)

What a stunning restoration! It was worth the expense & wait to get the Blu-Ray discs from BFI, and then a Multi-Region BD player. I just love the Carl Davis score. He used classical music from Haydn, Mozart, and a lot of Beethoven who were all alive and working hard during that time. And when you consider the fact that there will be no American release of this version -- I felt the need to jump all over it before it becomes out of print.

Sellers on EBay and such, would have you believe that it is already OOP, so they can jack up the price. The fact is that - the 1st Edition BD is sold out. So the 2nd Edition comes in a plastic case (no more Boxed Editions), with the same booklet and a shortened interview with Carl Davis. The full interview can be obtained on YouTube. It's still the same film & restoration.

The "Eagle" theme that Maestro Davis composed for the film is just wonderful and makes you feel good when you hear it.

My Blu-Ray of "Parents" is scheduled to be delivered today. 

I saw it in the theater when it came out.  I tried to tell others about it, but it disappeared so quickly that only a couple people I knew ever saw it - and they didn't like it.

I hope the Commentary is entertaining and informative.

Just watched my new Blu-Ray of Invisible Invaders, 1959.

What a wonderful little stinker.  Looks like it was done on the budget for a single episode of a B&W George Reeves "Superman".

Was a little put off by the Tom Weaver Commentary.  Too negative.  Of course, it is not a timeless classic.  But it is a lot more typical of sci-fi movies of the time than was "Forbidden Planet".  Give it its pitiful due.

I didnt mind the commentary for INVISIBLE INVADERS, you should try the one for CURSE OF THE FACELESS MAN where the guy comments that Twice-Told Tales is a film that rips of Roger Corman's Poe pictures so badly that no one would dare say they like it. He also thrills with another real "chestnut" of knowledge of how THE ALLIGATOR PEOPLE was one of the best films that Corman made during his early AIP studio days. Yes some real knowledge being tossed around on this commentary, indeed.  ::)

Yep. It's an important entry in the Cannibal sub-genre. I rate it second only to Cannibal Holocaust. Man, those Grindhouse Releasing Blu-ray offerings have been absolutely stunning (2 Blu-rays & 1 CD). The special features are fantastic. Honestly I think Grindhouse Releasing has become the best Blu-ray production company of any. I'm looking forward to checking out the feature length documentary Eaten Alive! The Rise And Fall Of The Italian Cannibal Film.

are my top in bluray releases.

Yes! I'm a big fan of all of those companies. Kino Lorber does good work as well. Their recent release of One Million Years B.C. is excellent. This is the greatest time ever for home video.  :)

True, great time for home video. I remember around 1999 till about 2005, it seemed SWV, Anchor Bay, Shriek Show and Mondo Macbro were the kings of dvd releasing...

Absolutely! I still love my SWV, Media Blasters (Shriek Show), Anchor Bay, and Mondo Macabro DVDs! The many Anchor Bay releases are excellent, especially their Hammer Collection. I grabbed every Mondo Macabro DVD I could get my hands on. I bought many of the Shriek Show releases when they first came out at full price, but when they came out discounted in the "3 Movies" packs I bought all I could find (Wow! 3 Shriek Show releases for 15 bucks!). Also the many Image releases, especially their EuroShock series! And, the Casa Negra Mexican films. Also, perhaps the best for me were the excellent BCI/Deimos Spanish Horror titles with the many Naschy films that were previously seen only in poor quality PD collections, not-so-great boots, or not at all.

BTW, a friend was telling me that Code Red will be releasing several Naschy flicks on Blu-ray. Fingers crossed those will be good quality. I love that Code Red puts out obscure stuff that many of us love, but sometimes they have little in the way of special features and some of their DVDs have been a bit glitchy. Here's hoping they do a great job on the new Naschy stuff and raise their game to compete with some of those other excellent companies we were discussing.  :)

I got it from a private dealer on Ebay, who had some other very nice films for sale that are not available in the US..they all a lot of all region coded films and I ordered Hammer's SHADOW OF THE CAT from him as well. Horror House was pretty good all around considering I had never seen it before. The DVD itself was an excellent nice British import as are many of this dealer's films. He has the missing AIP films that Susan Hart is holding on to that have been released over in the UK in special editions as well as some nice Eurohorror, more obscure British horror and Sci-Fi and some great Mexican horror films as well.

Yeah, the set is 6 bucks. It's a great deal and one I'm really glad to have. For years I just had CTWF on a VHS tape that I recorded from a Skinemax showing back in the '90s and then burned onto disc.

CTWF isn't a great film but I've always liked it. It is somewhat significant in that it finishes Hammer's Prehistoric Series. Too bad they couldn't afford any dinos for it.  :D

Franco sure cranked out the Exploitation back in the day! Some of it's good, some of it's not so good, but all of it's interesting. And, it has an important place in the history of the Exploitation genre. I prefer Franco's Horror from the '60s and '70s, but I enjoy all of his films to varying degrees.

That Blu-ray also has a great documentary featuring Franco called Eurotika! from 1999, and a really insightful interview with Stephen Thrower. Mondo Macabro does a good job presenting obscure films, especially Eurohorror.

I really enjoy Stephen Thrower's bits on the Video Nasties documentaries from Severin. That guy really knows his genre films, and he's THE expert on all things Franco.

I received this Something Weird Video DVD copy of The Curious Dr. Humpp (1969) from an eBay seller today:

(http://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/YjgAAOSw3ZRY9UKp/s-l1600.jpg)

By the pic it appears that the case has considerable wear, but when I received it I discovered it's almost as new. Evidently what appears to be wear in the photo is reflection. The disc is as new and plays fine. This is the old snapcase original release from 2000 with all the SWV special features. This was re-released in 2011 by IMAGE without the special features. I wanted the original SWV version and since it was only $10 I took a chance on a badly worn case... which it turned out wasn't worn very much at all. Most of these you see offered nowadays are the IMAGE re-releases. The original SWV DVDs are big fun.  ;D

I love SWV (R.I.P., Mike Vraney) This film/DVD is fun to watch. Does this DVD have the paper/wrap-around cover? I assume so.

Yeah, it's the old cardboard case that folds out...really cool.  8)

I've seen this film show up on the classic Something Weird Video intro so many times it'll be good to actually watch the whole thing. It's the same cast and crew that did Blood Of The Virgins so I expect it will be fun.

I became familiar with Rollin's work a few years ago when I bought The Vampire Collection DVD set.

(https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/51WSKWYHMXL._SY445_.jpg)

I also bought The Zombie Collection and The Devil Collection. Good stuff. I'm into atmospheric Eurohorror like that of Rollin and Franco. People either love it or hate it.

Satan's Mistress is actually pretty good except for Don Galloway's annoying character. It only rates a 2.9 on IMDb  :laugh: but I learned long ago that my tastes differ greatly from the masses. The BIG attraction(s) in Satan's Mistress is/are Lana Wood's bountiful glands which are very impressive and grand fare to star in an Exploitation flick.

Which version? Lol, actually there are four different versions of the film and all versions are available on this disc..the most complete would probably be the final version. All in all, this Arrow release is very good.

I got it on auction at Ebay for $17.00, so it was quite a bargain. :)

Well this was a Roger Corman opus who bought up a Yugoslavian film and had Jack Hill reshoot it a couple of times and then again with Stephanie Rothman. Now you would think this would lead to a huge mess, however, the end result is a pretty creepy affair and not as bad as it's production history would suggest. :)

The ladies in this are all eye candy and it has some really odd performances by William Campbell and Sid Haig.

I just have watched it.  It's from Republic Studios and it is a supernatural version of Universal's BLACK FRIDAY(1940), even using the same actor, Stanley Ridges, as the guy who becomes possessed. It is a pleasant time waster.

Added this one awhile back, awesome restoration although there is a slight decrease in quality during the 3D segments.  I've always liked this movie and it's incredible to me that it received any restoration and a 3D release to boot;

(http://images4.static-bluray.com/movies/covers/139193_front.jpg)

And just received this one today.  Haven't gotten to watch yet (I have of course seen it many times before,never in 3D) but it is said to be a beautiful restoration.  I did get to watch one of the two bonus 3 Stooges 3D shorts though.  This was limited to 3000 copies and is no longer available directly from Twilight Time, only 2nd hand sources.  I paid $50 (original price was $30) and I don't feel guilty one bit...although my wife thinks I'm crazy;

I am so glad to get a good copy of THIRTEEN WOMEN.  The many bad reviews aren't incorrect but it's a hoot to watch and, her "absurd powers of hypnotism" are only 'absurd' if the viewer lived in a Silent Film vacuum where DR. MABUSE wasn't just hypnotizing victims, but his actual spirit took them over, occupied their mind and body and committed whatever acts Mabuse wanted.  I thought Loy's THIRTEEN WOMEN character really wanted to achieve this kind of 'power' but the filmmakers were just too, well, cowardly.  "Who'd believe a Miss Mabuse?!!"  Uh.  What about the character THEY delivered, though? 

Still, it's easy to see - along with an earlier Loy outing THE SQUALLY - that Hollywood had no idea what to do with a woman of such looks. 

I think the whole Racist Fringe angle should have been dumped and turned into Bullied Schoolgirl's Grownup Agenda.

These two early Loys have made me wish we'd see a lot more.

No, but this was on sale as Best Buy, and with a gift card, I was able to get it for $6.00..so I wasnt going to pass it up on regular BD, especially with MYSTERY OF THE WAX MUSEUM and a commentary as extras. :)

Hadn't heard of that one. I looked at some clips. Looks pretty interesting!

THIRTEEN WOMEN is a pretty neat little movie about an astrologer, who uses her ways to murder women who shunned her for being mixed back in the college days..

That's a good deal! I was hoping for a stand alone MYSTERY, someday, but I guess we won't get it.

Hadn't heard of that one. I looked at some clips. Looks pretty interesting!

Interesting tidbit about “13 Women “.......the film originally included an actress named Peg Entwistle. Her scenes were left on the cutting room floor however. This was the last straw for Poor Peg in her frustrated attempts to achieve stardom. So she devised another method to achieve the fame she craved.

She climbed up Mt Lee, where the Hollywood Sign is situated, and dove to her death from the letter “H”.

Seems she was unlucky in love as well though...... her husband was named Robert Keith. It wasn’t until after the marriage that she discovered that Old Bob, a raging alcoholic , was still married to his first wife, and that he also had a young son. He had managed to keep it all secret until he had married and bankrupted his new young wife.

Peg was devastated. Her excising from “13 Women” was truly the last straw among many for her. Her legendary swan dive seemed the only way out.

Final creepy trivia.....her surprise step son was named Brian. Brian Keith. Of “Family Affair” fame. Buffy, Jody, Mrs. Beasley, etc.   

The acting bug wasn’t the only legacy Peg left to Brian. Brian’s daughter would also join her grandmother in suicide, her last straw being a drug habit she just couldn’t kick. And Brian’s last straw was his futile battle against cancer and losing his beloved daughter. He killed himself with a revolver shortly after burying his daughter. Suicide became a Keith “Family Affair.”

Another little known tidbit is that Mr. French went to heave himself off the Hollywood sign.  Except he just couldn't decide which "L" to leap from, deliberating for hours---all the while eating Russell Stover diabetic candy. He eventually shat himself with explosive diarrhea and just went home.

Bought some oldies, but hard to geties. The 3 PRC horrors released by Image Ent. in new, or like new condition. "The Flying Serpent", "The Devil Bat's Daughter" and "Strangler of the Swamp". Been looking to get them at a decent price, but didn't think I'd get them all in the same day!

I was pleasantly surprised when I first saw FLYING SERPENT several years ago because Zucco is far more than a his standard one-dimensional Mr Sneer/Mr Sinister role.  And STRANGLER IN THE SWAMP was another good surprise.

Maybe these films benefit from low expectations.  DEVIL BAT'S DAUGHTER, we have, but I've never seen it.  Shame shame shame.  I think SWAMP made me pull out ATTACK OF GIANT LEECHES because I wanted to experience more swamp-action.  Without Burt Reynolds and Jerry Reed, I mean.

I just ordered the FRANKENSTEIN and WOLF MAN: COMPLETE LEGACY COLLECTION Blu-ray sets at just $16.99 a piece from Amazon Prime! That's the lowest I've ever seen as I've been waiting for a price drop. They've gone up and down and currently, the DRACULA and MUMMY sets are $24.48, so I'll wait to see if they go down later. So, for any one else out there who's been waiting too, grab 'em now at that great price! The FRANKENSTEIN blu-ray set is actually $3.00 cheaper than the DVD set - how wild is that?

           Psycho Circus: Triple Feature - Blu-Ray, 2017


Contains the following three films:

The Creeping Flesh - (1973) - Color - 94 minutes Rated PG
 Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing

A Victorian-age scientist returns to London with his paleontological bag-of-bones discovery from Papua New Guinea. Unfortunately, when exposed to water, flesh returns to the bones unleashing a malevolent being on the scientist's family and friends.

 Brotherhood of Satan - (1971) - Color - 92 minutes - Rated PG
 Strother Martin, L.Q. Jones, Charles Bateman, Ahna Capri

A family is trapped in a desert town by a cult of senior-citizens who recruit the town's children to worship Satan.

 Torture Garden - (1967) - Color - 93 minutes Not Rated
 Jack Palance, Burgess Meredith, Peter Cushing, Robert Hutton

An anthology of four short horror stories about people who visit Dr. Diabolo's fairground haunted-house attraction show.


I just ordered this and have not received it yet.  I mention it here because Amazon currently has it on sale for just $7.88.  Not a bad price for three movies on Blu-Ray.

https://tinyurl.com/ybvd7ld7

The film reviews are mixed, but everyone seems to like the Blu-Ray transfers.

From what I understand (and don't quote me on this) I think most, if not all, surviving versions of the film are sourced from a 16 mm print that was used for home showings. And I don't think that was in the best of shape either, so that is probably why it appears that way.

I noticed that rainy effect on my previously purchased versions of the film, but this one was markedly improved.

Finally replaced my DVD of TCM with the Blu-ray. I think this disc was originally part of a 2 disc set as the only extras are 4 commentaries. What blew me away though was the surround sound audio options on this disc. I couldn't believe the separation they got out of a mono sound track. I cannot overstate this. I've purchased other movies where they attempted to do this but this one was amazing. Audio options are 7.1 DTS, 5.1 DTS, Stereo and original Mono. I listened to the 5.1 audio and was amazed! Picture is a 4K restoration which looks good but still has an amount of grain which I'm sure is unavoidable with this film. Colors are nice and bright though. If you have a surround system this is a must buy especially at 9 bucks on Amazon.

Yeah.

You gotta watch that when "upgrading" to Blu-Ray.  Some of the best DVD extras are not carried over to the Blu-Ray editions.  I always compare them closely.  If the old DVD had a better commentary track or an extra disc of extras, I put the whole works in a new 2 or 3 disc holder and include a note about where to find the best features.

One good example is the Blu-Ray of "Halloween".  The DVD version has a very informative commentary by the director, John Carpenter and the producer, Debra Hill.  The Blu-Ray version does not have Hill (I think they divorced during the interim, she died, and rights were not re-secured from her heirs), and the commentary is awful.  Needless to say, I kept the DVD for when I want to indulge myself in that background material.

 Just sayin'.

Found The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2: Gruesome Edition (2006) for 4 bucks at Slackers; an easy decision to upgrade from the old MGM release (2000) which only had the trailer as a bonus feature.  This edition is uncut, has deleted scenes, a couple cool commentaries and a 92min documentary plus a superior transfer.

I hope you have better luck than I did with The Bloodthirsty Trilogy BD, geezer. The one I received from Amazon disc 1 wouldn't even load. It had a physical nick in the edge of the disc. I returned it today. Amazon is sending a replacement. Maybe I'll finally get to watch these things at some point. I wonder if this was just a fluke, or does Arrow have a problem with quality control.

I received the replacement Bloodthirsty Trilogy BD set today and both discs load at least, so it appears to be new and undamaged. The one I returned didn't really look new/undamaged because there were nasty looking fingerprints on the sleeve, and it could have been previously opened and shrink-wrapped again with the cheap wrap.  I've run into this before with Amazon, especially with books. I don't know if they occasionally send out damaged goods and hope customers won't complain or if it was just a mistake or what. Amazon is so huge with so many employees it's hard to tell. I've had to return more than one book to Amazon due to excessive wear (and not just shipping damage). To classify some of those books as "New" was pathetic. Anyway, I hardly ever order books from Amazon anymore after so many problems. At least they eventually make good on a damaged item with replacement or refund. It's just a hassle having to wait to eventually get something you've already paid for. I've had less trouble with eBay sellers. Also, Diabolik DVD provides excellent customer service and I've never had a problem with them. They even ship in rigid protection so the case arrives undamaged whereas Amazon usually sends one or two DVD/BDs in a bubble envelope. If it's something more important to me like one of the Naschy Collections I pay the higher price and order from Diabolik, but for most movies or sets I look for the best price which is usually Amazon or eBay.

Anyone else had a lot of trouble with Amazon purchases?

Here's the Amazon 'page' for this product and "Rick W's" review includes the 1:66-to-1 with black side-bars, vs. the older 2:00-to-1 ratio.  He still gives the collection 5 stars, by the way. 
https://www.amazon.com/Hammer-Horror-8-Film-Collection-Blu-ray/dp/B01I048O8W/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1531093868&sr=8-6&keywords=hammer+bluray (https://www.amazon.com/Hammer-Horror-8-Film-Collection-Blu-ray/dp/B01I048O8W/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1531093868&sr=8-6&keywords=hammer+bluray)

Also, I see there is a slight difference in a titling: "EVIL OF DR. FRANKENSTEIN" instead of the ages-old "EVIL OF FRANKENSTEIN".  Can you check the title-card of the film itself to see if "DR" is included or if that's someone's inserted typo?  That would be a curiosity for me, and one that makes good sense because that's one of the Frankenstein films that truly highlights the Doctor's evil side. 

I hate to see these aspect differences show up for whatever reasons.  I get this feeling that these rightsholders are trying out new jigs and lures on us.

Good, I hate having to spend more money when I don't need to.  I don't mind upgrading when I can find something cheap, like used at a yard sale.  Yard sales are a great source for movies.  I can get DVDs (sometimes even sealed ones, seasons of a show, and Blu-Rays) for $1 generally.  My best deal was TOY STORY 3 DVD/Blu-Ray combo and sealed for a quarter.  This past weekend I picked up a bunch of DVDs for $1 each.  Most were mainstream movies, but finished my Star Trek movie collection with STAR TREK VI and STAR TREK: INSURRECTION.  Sometimes I even find more unusual titles.  About a month ago I picked ALUCARDA.  Haven't watched it yet though.

I check for scratches and to make sure the disc is inside.   Kids' DVDs are the ones that you really have to check.

 Several years back I bought A LOT from an older woman whose husband had passed away and was a horror and Sci Fi fan.  There were boxes of them.  I bought so many that her son thought I had a store and was going to resell them.  I assured them that they were actually for me and that they were going to a home where they would be appreciated.  Quite a bit of unusual stuff including a bunch of Argento and other foreign horror.

Post by: ChristineBCW on July 10, 2018, 08:17:20 PM
Mike, in careful inspection of the Amazon reviewer's supplied two video-snippets from BRIDES OF DRACULA, the location of the blackbars - on the sides for the 1.66 ratio, and top & bottom for the 2.00 ratio - has that 2.00 ratio losing a small amount from the top and bottom of the pix.

This looks more like a pan & puke issue where they may have synthecizied a new 'dimension' only by losing some vertical spacing. 

The most obvious effect is that, in the 2016's 2.00 ratio scene, Baroness Meinster's goblet stem is lopped off whereas you can see it in the older 2006 1.66 ratio shot.  I'm uncertain how important goblet stems are for movie-watchers.

Thanks, Mike.  Uh... what's magical about the 2.0:1 ratio?  Hmmm... do I get more greenstamps?  On every viewing, maybe?  (That would really be cool - I can still get more tupperware with greenstamps, yes?)

I can achieve all new aspect-ratios by adding blackbars only - I don't need to snip off bottoms of goblets or anything else.  I wish they'd leave the scissors alone and just add black-bars. 

Oh - did the Title Card on EVIL OF F say have "DOCTOR" included?

I liked these few Hammer-Suspense-Mystery series they put out.  Some were pretty decent crime dramas and mysteries, some not so.  These were part of the "quickie era" where Brit studios were told to produce exportable-to-USA-audience films for cash in the post-WWII high-debt years.  Some of these had Lois Maxwell in her earliest roles, not as Moneypenny at all.  Some had the older, flabbier Pat O'Brien running across tarmacs and down alleys after bad guys.  And so many had a token American actor to exploit his 'marquee' value. 

Alas, once Hammer learned that their Horrors would earn more money, they started jettisoning backlots, writing and production crews and eventually ended up as a one-trick-pony studio, with only Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing and the cleavage du jour to offer.  And when the drive-in market dried up, Hammer had nothing to offer.

I like Scars Of Dracula very much and it seems to be a bit underrated by many. Those Anchor Bay Hammer DVDs were the shizzle, and still are for this Hammer fan.

I just watched the entire Hammer Dracula series. "Scars..." holds up very well. I too feel that it is extremely underrated. If you listen to the commentary, even those involved seem apologetic.  No need, it's a fine film.

I fully agree. On the cheesecake front- Jenny Hanley is cast as the lead hottie, but for me Anouska Hempel is the firebrand in that flick.

(https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/evilbabes/images/3/3d/Screenshot_53099.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20170914005747)

As Hammer Hotties go I rank Anouska pretty high.  ;)

Ya don't say! I thought the only movie rental now was those little Red Box vending things, and I heard they're on their way out. Nice to hear about a video store actually renting physical media again.

I first saw Rawhead Rex when I was on leave from the Army in the late '80s. I rented several VHS tapes at a place called Fantasy World in my home town. I've always liked the film even though the suit left something to be desired in some shots. That twisted little perverted priest that served Rawhead was a real SOB.  >:D

Major disappointment in a recent Universal Vault purchase! I watched SUPERNATURAL, yesterday and they cropped the top and bottom of the frame so it fits the 16:9 TV image!! What the hell were they thinking? Who do they think are buying these movies, besides film fans? Nobody, that's who! Now I don't want to look at the three other Uni Vault DVD-Rs that I bought. They all say "Full Frame 1.33:1" on the boxes.

This is the R rated version of Santo and Dracula's Treasure.

The contents of this bundle are very nice. The pin is large and heavy. The map is really cool, it's on very thick parchment paper and came rolled in a tube inside the shipping box with the other stuff. It's nice enough to frame, and if I had more free wall space I'd hang it up. The coasters and recipe card are very nicely done, and the swizzle stick rivals the Langdon Zombie swizzles. I'm glad I ordered this but I really wish I wasn't too late on the bundle with the mask.

Absolutely! If you are  fan of these films, they've never looked better than here. Some really great extras plus BEAST OF BLOOD is only available on Blu through this box set, no individual release(also it is restored with previously omitted footage added.) TERROR IS A MAN looks great as well and MAD DOCTOR OF BLOOD ISLAND is a real gem here with plenty of extras and several commentaries. :D

I like all (well, most of) the Marvel superhero movies. Also the Jurassic movies and the Star Wars movies.

Well, I pulled the lee-ver and bought the big Universal Blu-ray box. It's supposed to be the "fixed" one.

Awesome Mike---I bought my brother the set for Christmas and he loves it. I have the five individual sets and just waiting on Creature version. I kinda wish I would have been more patient and bought the box set though.

Where can one safely acquire a 'fixed' one?

Get one with the new bar code label on the bottom of the slipcase box with the numbers "1_91329_06554_g".

Now may be the time, the new Bluray has some very nice extras as well as a great restoration of the original print.
