So no horror movies on the horizon?
Are the six pack collections blu-rays as well?
I think those are DVD-only.
If it's any conciliation, Legend Of Billie Jean will be released on Blu-ray AND the commentary from the MOD disc will be included.

It sounds like Mill Creek is getting worse in their quality control. Their Flatliners Blu-ray reissue also only has a Dolby Digital 2.0 lossy track. The older Sony Blu-ray issue had an uncompressed 5.1 track.
It's true though. Fuck, even their super-cheap 2-packs that you can get at Wal-Mart for $3 now at least have lossless audio. The few releases I have from them are decent, but now it's all horror stories about not just 2.0 audio, but really poorly mixed and low-level 2.0 lossy shitfests.
Remember, Echo Bridge has always meant cheap shitty shit. Mill Creek used to just mean cheap.:nervous: I know they are easy to mix up as I sometimes do myself, but one is clearly better than the other, or at least WAS clearly better.
I received The Legend Of Billie Jean today. For $5, can't complain. Beats the hell out of the $20 DVD-R.
I saw this in the Wal-Mart dump bin a few days ago. I've never seen it. Any good?
If you're a fan of offbeat '80s teen movies, absolutely.
Mill Creek are releasing two "Hammer Films" Double Feature Blu-rays, apparently licensed from Sony. Both have a $14.98 SRP and will be released on September 6th:
The Two Faces of Dr. Jekyll & The Gorgon
The Revenge of Frankenstein & The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb
These Hammer double features are definite pre-orders for me (they don't appear to be available at Amazon yet), but I may cancel if they don't offer lossless audio. That's really inexcusable this far into the Blu-ray era. Fingers crossed.
The Revenge of Frankenstein and The Gorgon are both great, but really just about any/all Hammer Horror are welcome on Blu-ray. Keep them coming!
I think you'll be able to live without it...
With Mill Creek, that is perplexing. They used to release Blu-rays with lossless audio, and then they went back in time to lossy audio for whatever reason.
I'm definitely still buying them though, since I doubt we'll see any other Blu-rays of these for a long time. Plus, they're priced cheap... so I think we can live with it.
Their lossy releases have been mostly Touchstone titles, right? Coming from Sony gives a higher chance they'll be lossless.
No, even their later Sony titles have had lossy audio again. The Harryhausen double feature was lossy, Sun, Sand & Sweat pack was lossy, The Legend of Billie Jean was lossy, etc..

That's slightly disappointing but I will still pick it up. At least the price is right.
