    My DVD of the Howling has laser rot so I'm hoping for a new release soon.

    Not a big fan of FROM BEYOND. Glad it's out of the way, though. I think it's safe to say that DOLLS isn't too far behind since there are already 3 other Empire titles coming our way. Dolls is more fun IMO.

    I agree. The MGM HDTV version of "Dolls" looked amazing :)

    I've watched mine once. It's nice that it is hitting blu-ray and I do like the film, but this one is a pretty low priority for me.

    i feel the same. i rewatched it just a few weeks ago, actually. second time viewing it since i purchased it years ago. its a good movie, no doubt. but not one i'm falling over myself in excitement to upgrade. the mgm release was a pretty solid special edition, and it looked pretty good upscaled on my 50" plasma. there are other scream factory titles i'll be more likely to buy.

    I picked up Terror Train and The Funhouse yesterday. Suspect Video had them out early. Haven't watched The Funhouse yet, but I skimmed through Terror Train and it looks really natural and film like. It has some nice grain, still not as clean as Halloween II and III (white specks pop up here and there) but there's a major leap in image quality when compared to the Fox DVD from years back.

    Just to think...Terror Train used to be such a rare and sought-after title and now it's available on fuckin' BLU-RAY. Who knew...

    The Shout release has the original jack-in-the-box on the reverse, the drooling mouth art on the actual disc plus the new art. It's a nice-looking package.

    Big fan of From Beyond but not upgrading for the Shout's edition. Perfectly happy with the one I have.

    I'm not sure what you mean now. The DVDBeaver link has comparisons between the Universal DVD, The Arrow Blu-ray and the Shout Factory Blu-ray. 3 different screenshots all down the page, I don't see how you aren't seeing it...

    I ordered both the Funhouse and Terror Train blu-rays from DVDEmpire, along with Excision and Wrong Turn 5.

    I just looked up the order, and under Excision it says:
    PRODUCT RESERVED: This product is IN-STOCK and is being reserved for this Order.

    But it doesn't look like they've got Funhouse or Terror Train yet.

    Wrong Turn 5 doesn't street until the next week (the 23rd), so I'm curiously if they will ship out the first three when they get Funhouse and Terror Train, or if they'll wait for Wrong Turn 5.

    I've only ordered from them maybe 2 or 3 times, so I'm not sure how their pre-orders work. It doesn't matter either way, I can wait an extra week. I'm just really excited for these two.

    Blasphemy! The Funhouse is one of the most atmospheric slasher films ever made!

    This was the movie that made me fall in love with widescreen. I had seen it several times on TV growing up and just thought it was okay, but when I saw it on the DVD in 2.35:1 widescreen I fell head over heels in love with it. It was like watching a completely different movie. Now, I would probably rank it among my top 10 slashers.

    Actually you tell them what to do in the case of different release dates. There is a "Ship Partial" or "Ship Complete" option on the order page. You can change the option if you want. To find out what option you've selected just click on your order and check the middle of the page for "Backorder Method." If you want to change it click on the "Update Backorder Method" button near the top of the page.

    This one just never did anything for me. Always found it way overrated. For one thing, it's so sloooooooooooooooooow. Nothing happens for like an hour.

    Then again... I love Final Exam, so what do I know. :)

    But yeah, Funhouse just never left an impression with me. I'd lump it along side Sweet Sixteen, Mortuary, and Humongous. Watchable but dull slashers.

    Thanks for the heads up. I have it as Ship Complete.

    I have it set for Free Shipping though, and I don't want to screw that up. I'm okay with waiting the extra week.

    well from what I read into the description, the blu ray captures on the bottom of the page were also from the ARROW blu? Doesn't matter I'm perfectly happy with the ARROW version
