    Massacre In Dinosaur Valley is hilarious, and Cruel Jaws looks like my kind of trash. In for both.

    I owned the 88 Films version of Massacre in Dinosaur Valley. I didn't hate it, but found it a bit aimless. I do find the jungle cannibal horror fascinating, so Primitives is an exciting announcement. I wish we could somehow have gotten The Last Shark instead of Cruel Jaws, but after Universal's reaction when Scream Factory announced The Last Shark, I'm not holding my breath. Also, Cruel Jaws is Bruno Mattei after all, and I enjoyed his Hell of the Living Dead, another movie which saw him lifting stock footage and documentary material and inserting it into his own work.

    ^ I believe Cruel Jaws is the movie Scream Factory announced and cancelled, due to it using footage from Universal's Jaws movies. I've never seen it, so I'm not sure what Severin's approach there will be...

    Cruel jaws is a definite purchase, and primitives i saw on tales of terror collection years ago. Oh i will upgrade on that. Closest thing I ever saw to Make Them Die Slowly. See them both and let your cruel jaw hit the floor! It'll make you put holy water in your visine for sure!

    Thanks, I misremembered, and probably confused the two titles at the time, no doubt because Cruels Jaws lifts a lot of footage from The Last Shark. I don't want to jinx it, but I wonder how the licensing issues that prevented Scream Factory from releasing Cruel Jaws have been resolved, and if this also means that The Last Shark aka Great White is theoretically possible?

    If I'm not mistaken, Scream Factory simply got cold feet about releasing it, as the film also takes footage from the actual Jaws films, which they did not realize when they acquired it. I got the impression that, whether or not they would have been in the right to release it, they didn't want to jeopardize their relationship with Universal over one film.

    Is anyone buying direct from Severin, for the exclusive covers? Diabolik is "cheaper" but doesn't say anything about the covers. Actually, when you factor in Severin has free shipping, it would almost come out the same.

    I thought about getting Cruel Jaws and Franky And His Pals, but their free shipping threshold is an insane $80.

    I'll get the standard edition down the road. Was already able to pick up non-slipped Demonia for under $20.

    If anyone is wondering why they still have yet to receive their pre-order of Fulci for Fake (Slipcover):

    Nah, I'm not getting it. Severin are one studio that I never ape over many of their slipcovers, mostly due to price. This is one title that I may get down the line cheaply... but I'll pass on the overpriced Slipcover grab.

    Also, Severin's slipcovers don't fit properly. The few that I have are so tight, you almost have to cut them off to get to the case.

    I've noticed that, specifically with Emanuelle and the Last Cannibals and Eaten Alive. Emanuelle and Francois and Killer Crocodile both fit well, though. I think the first two titles were released at around the same time, so perhaps they had a problem at the time and it's since been resolved? Could be they changed manufacturers, or maybe they just slightly messed up the dimensions on a select few releases.

    I received Fulci for Fake in the mail today, and it's at least a thicker variant Slipcover (more like VS ones) that slides out effortlessly — but probably only due to the cover being a Lenticular.

    What’s up with preorders for Cruel Jaws ending at midnight? Are they saying they are just not going to sell the slipcover after midnight? What tactic is this?

    I guess... but with Severin it'll probably be for sale again sporadically, just as they've done countless times before.

    It's one title I could care less about the Slipcover for though.

    Agreed. Let’s get it during the next sale! And I bet the slipcover Jaws 5 will be available - lol.

    "Terminator 2" hung around for quite awhile and the poster's still available! So I wouldn't be too worried about it. It's worth paying the full price if it gives you a hard on but as a novelty... you can probably wait it out and get it during a sale.

    BTW anyone have the "SMELLS OF DEATH!" shot glass? Is it dishwasher safe? It appears to be but I don't want to risk it.

    Oh wow, I didn't expect to see Patrick Still Lives get a release. Might be interested in that one.

    Demons 6 I know little about. I may have seen it but I also thought it was one of those movies that was never finished.
