This thread is for Satan's Blade Also, can't see what's wrong with lots of 80's aerobics. I love it!
I guess it's because Slasher video released both idk.
Killer Workout is enjoyable cheese.
Count me in as another fan of Killer Workout. I may have criticised The Mutilator for not going for the scares, and Killer Workout is even more guilty of this, but the 80's pop soundtrack, Marcia Karr showing off the rubbery scars on her tatas, and the fact that people keep attending the murder gym (sometimes even after they've been killed) all kept me entertained.
lol. I love KW. It has the perviest camera during those gratuitous aerobics scenes.
Meh. I love Arrow for taking a chance with a low-budget retro slasher, but there are definitely more deserving titles that don't even have a DVD release.
I had the same thought. Or, if you are going to do a low budg slasher, choose one that doesn't already have a release. At least my wallet gets a break since none of these titles I need - I actually have two copies on the uk blood and black lace - one still sealed!
Exactly. It's not so much that I personally find Satan's Blade boring and unmemorable (which I do), but that I would imagine many collectors of this kind of obscure horror cinema are region free, and that most fans and the passingly curious already own the American Blu-ray.
I probably will buy this Arrow release since I never picked this one up. Most likely Arrow's release will be better anyway.
The Arrow edition will include both 4:3 and 1.85:1 versions, which is an improvement over the Slasher Video/Olive release. As much as I love the genre I just can't get into Satan's Blade, so I'll probably skip the upgrade on this one.
I'm with the others that found Satan's Blade boring. I couldn't even finish it.
Would be cool to have Superstition on blu. Not sure that one even had a DVD release. I remember it being violent and nasty with a pretty non-stop pace. Would be great if Arrow could release that one.
I didn't find Satan's Blade boring. It was just nothing special. Not good enough to be a slasher classic and not bad enough to be hilarious. It was just...there.
Supersition had a DVD release via Anchor Bay but it went OOP. Would love a blu.
I bought Satan's Blade from Slasher//Video on DVD last May, and it's not one that I am HUGE into, but upgrading to Blu, having two different aspect ratios, and a reversible cover without all that Olive gunk on the front... I may actually buy this. Which is... weird. But my love for Arrow is forcing my hand.
According to Arrow's post, it will be Region Free, however, I did notice a few posts from Jesús Terán of Slasher//Video disputing whether Arrow can release a Region A compatible Blu-Ray release and mentioning that he will be contacting the film owner.
Superstition is with HBO. They showed it in HD a few months back.
That doesn't necessarily mean they hold the rights to physically release it though.
StudioCanal released a DVD over here in Europe, so hopefully they will release it on Blu-Ray in the future.
The Anchor Bay DVD also has the StudioCanal logo on the back, but I doubt that Anchor Bay still has the rights to re-release it on a disc.
I think StudioCanal generally means LionsGate here in the US, unfortunately.
However, HBO does frequently air Superstition in HD. IFC used to air it constantly as well, and you can occasionally catch it on TCM Underground in HD too.
Not exactly a movie you'd expect to still be on TV so consistently, but I'm glad it is. It's a fun movie with lots of replay value, so I usually turn it on whenever I come across it.
Yeah I love Superstition.
One of the better movies from the era. And one of the few that still holds up.
I was surprised to how brutal it was, when I first watched it on Video back in the late 80s, as I was expecting something less gory, and more in the same style as Amityville Horror.
Love the scene with the microwave in the opening scene
Hmm...I think I'm gonna give the movie a spin tonight
