    The Lift??? I have been wanting to see that for almost 20 years. Ever since I discovered The Video Graveyard website.

    Also: how did Blue Underground get Raw Meat from MGM/UA/Fox?

    Also: how did Blue Underground lose Fulci's City of the Living Dead / The Gates of Hell?

    Rights likely reverted to another party and Blue Underground was able to more easily license it, or they were persistent and someone caved. And their license for City of the Living Dead probably expired.

    Maniac? The Prowler? Fulci's Zombie? Shock Waves?

    I would guess those are Blue Underground's most popular films.

    I guess the real question is: does bluray upgrade mean it's a title that was only available on DVD prior to this?

    The titles you mentioned all have bluray releases (not sure what's still in print though).

    How did I miss the announcement for The Shaft (aka Down)! That movie is a riot. I lost it when Aerosmith's "Love In An Elevator" kicks in for the end credits.

    Day one for me. I wonder if any more of those great Artisan/LionsGate foreign titles from that era are up for grabs? Flashback, The Pool, Cut, etc?

    Wow awesome. It's about time someone revisited Argento on blu. Bird With the Crystal Plumage, Phenomena, Stendhal, Suspiria. Fuck yes.

    It's the MSRB price, it's mandatory. You want to pay for that amount, go to Barnes and Noble. *rimshot*

    Gotta be Deathdream. I can't think of any other BU titles that are "highly requested" that other labels haven't already stolen away.
