    Well...I for one would just like to thank both Bill @ CodeRedDVD & Don @ Synapse for their collective efforts in trying to release best quality possible releases of sometimes "lesser" quality films.

    I'm sure the wrangling of movie rights to relatively obscure titles is a royal pain in the ass, and knowing a little bit about the frenetic 70's/80's distribution scene, I've no doubt that the exact rights holders as they are now are sometimes difficult to determine.

    I definitely get frustrated when titles I'm interested in are announced and then yanked off the schedule, because there aren't very many titles out there that I'm interested in anymore, so when one comes up I look forward to it, and when it's cancelled, it's a disappointment.

    Personally, I would rather not hear of release announcements and release dates unless it's a done deal--I can deal with a couple of weeks' delay, but often times when it's months and months later or there are repeated changes it gets annoying, but I don't hold it against the video label---problems come up, and when you're a smaller outfit I would think it would be that much harder to meet deadlines cause there are fewer people working on them etc. I think that the "premature announcements" come to us largely out of the excitement, enthusiasm and hopes of a fellow movie fan that is trying to make folks happy and keep them interested---it's just that sometimes things don't end up panning out, that's all.

    I haven't heard of any actual released titles getting yanked for rights issues so I don't think there's any reason to doubt CodeRed's desire to be legal eagle...

    I own several titles from both companies, and am happy with all of them, so thanks guys.

    :)

    Yeah Synapse kinda rules that way. It's a very big reason so many of my DVD spines on my shelf have the little green logo on 'em :)
    Keep up the great work.

    I'm hoping for an uncut DVD of Chained Heat as well. And bring on more Pinky Violence films.

    Holy shit, some news! :eek:

    This summer, according to DVDaf, CODE RED will be releasing FOUR titles, including three Italian flicks! Now I can get rid of my two video tapes of PR:

    -The Dead Are Alive/The Etruscan Kills Again (1972) <--- [Giallo]
    -Horror High (Uncut - 1974)
    -A Long Ride from Hell/I Live for Your Death (1968) <--- [Spaghetti Western]
    -Primal Rage (1988)

    keep em coming. god help me if more companies realize my weak spot...number your dvds consecutively, and i may be forced to buy them all (or at least try) - hence my need to own all criterions and code red titles...fuck.

    oh well....yeah, code red!!

    Fun little movie, I have it on VHS. The last 30 minutes are great, when the 3 jock guys go crazy at the Halloween dance.

    Must say, I like the cover art. And the release date is close, July 13th.

    The VHS I have was released by Warner Home Video.

    So between Code Red redoing Horror High (willing to double dip for that one) and point of terror (which I also have in fullscreen on Rhino's Horrible Horrors sets, am I wrong in getting the impression that Code Red has begun dipping into the Crown International Vault? I could be a day late and a dollar short- 15 t0 50 dollars short in July, it seems...

    Really interested in checking out Primal Rage. I've read quite a few reviews that compare its basic plot idea to 28 Days Later.

    If Horror High really is uncut, I'd buy it in a heartbeat. But I also remember it being announced by BCI and what that led to. Did Code Red license this from Crown?

    I already have the Italian DVD of Primal Rage, which looks great. I might buy it again if the transfer is improved, and/or has some notable extras.

    Code Red is being distributed by Navarre, who probably still owns some of the BCI-licensed titles. I'm not sure, but I think some of the double features from Code Red was previous BCI titles as well (and also using the Exploitation Cinema banner).

    That's awesome about The Dead Are Alive, all we have in English is the Eurovista disc (and a Greek release that seems to just be a port of the Eurovista disc...) which leaves a lot to be desired. Can't wait to hear further details on this one, hopefully it will look as good as the German DVD!

    Yeah that's a possibility. Many of those previous BCI/Crown DVD's are now licensed to Mill Creek, but I don't believe Horror High has shown up in any of those Mill Creek DVD reissues.
