I don't remember it being all THAT good a movie.

I'd say it's one of my favorite Carpenter movies, but I've already got a BD.

I don't remember it being all THAT good a movie.

It wasn't, imo.

Coming soon from Scorpion Releasing via Roninflix, the 1969 film ASSIGNMENT TERROR. This is coming from the Spanish negative and will blow every other release out of the galaxy. Having contributed to the release of MUMMY'S REVENGE and the forthcoming FURY OF THE WOLFMAN, I am eagerly awaiting this!

Cannot go wrong with a Paul Naschy film. Btw. Mr. Naschy was a very nice in person, to meet. Loved his fans.

I'm a huge Naschy fan. I love his werewolf films and I enjoyed the new "Revenge of the Mummy" blu ray, but I've never been able to watch "Assignment Terror" in its entirety. I'm pretty sure it's because I've never seen a watchable print. I've purchased different versions of it over the years that were always pan and scan and looked terrible. Every time I've tried to watch it, I've given up before I even saw a single monster. I really hope this new transfer gives me a whole new perspective on this film.

Not much of a movie, honestly.
