    ...with a $50.00 markup on an already overpriced set. :rolleyes:

    I'll bump this here, feels more appropriate:
    https://www.fullmoondirect.com/Vintage-VHS-Collection-1-Puppet-Master-signednumbered_p_1244.html

    Free shipping and this month Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama is the free DVD they throw in. ;)

    Laserblast and Tourist Trap will be next. I wonder what those gimmick gifts would be as FM don't currently have any knick knacks for sale (I know, I find that hard to believe myself!).

    Original temp work said this would a new master and be uncut. This current press release and the listing on DiabolikDVD do not. So odds are this will be the usual cut... and probably not from a new master. :(

    Rather odd. I don't know if Band has his reasons for using the edited cut or just that any usable elements are lost.

    Yeah, this will probably be the same disc(s). Though if by some surprise the discs turn out to be uncut, I'll buy it.

    Of course, we know the next time Tourist Trap gets a Blu-ray release, it will be uncut so now the question is; Will the MVD release be the one with the uncut version?

    I loved those movies as a kid, but I'm a little scared to revisit them now. Maybe they're best left the way I remember them?

    I actually rewatched a bunch of the Moonbeam films a couple of months ago as I stumbled on a stack of Moonbeam VHS and Prehysteria at least held up somewhat although it's nowhere near as enjoyable as an adult. The sequels fared worse though as they were pretty bad. Remote also wasn't any good or as fun as I remembered. Pet Shop at least was a bit zany, but still rather quaint. None of them though are something I will probably ever revisit again...

    DVD News Flash reports that the Prehysteria sequels and Pet Shop will be available on Blu-ray this December according to Charles Band.

    Now this is one that should benefit immensely. I just have it in an old Platinum Disc DVD set, which has the same transfer that FM used on their DVD release... and it's a rather terrible looking Pan & Scan transfer from an old video master. A restored widescreen version should be a revelation.

    I added the Prehysteria! blu-ray to a recent Hamilton Book order. Not only is this one a blu-ray + DVD combo, but it even comes with a slipcover.

    I hadn't seen this movie since I was a kid, and I can't say it has aged gracefully. Not that I'm surprised. It is still moderately entertaining '90s family entertainment. The movie doesn't really build up to anything. It feels like things are just getting started, then it ends. Not only that, it ends with a sequel set-up. There are two sequels, but it doesn't look like either of them follow these characters. So, it's kind of just like... okay?

    It's interesting because this is marketed as a kid-friendly family film, yet the disc menu is proceeded by a trailer for other Full Moon movies featuring some of their more R-rated offerings. Although I can't imagine anyone seeking this movie out who didn't grow up with it. If you're planning on showing your kids this disc, maybe brace them for some of the kill scenes from Intruder first!

    Not Full Moon related, but I wish Sony or Mill Creek would release Magic In The Water. I'd love to upgrade that '90s family creature feature, as the DVD is fullscreen.
