    The VS slips are such high quality that I think they are worth it to own but not at ridiculous prices. I personally wouldn't pay an arm and a leg for them but they are nice to look at on the shelf :)

    I watched that not too long ago and think I posted about it here. Filmed at the same house from Silent Night Deadly Night 3.

    It's a pretty cool movie. I have the ancient Simitar DVD release, so this will surely be a nice upgrade. Hopefully VS gets even more Nico Mastorakis related titles!

    Island of Death and The Zero Boys came from Arrow, and Blind Date is coming from Scorpion.

    All we need now are Blood Tide and The Wind, if I'm not mistaken. I'd upgrade those.

    ...and Bloodstone, Ninja Academy, .com for Murder, Glitch!, Grandmother's House, The Naked Truth, Skyhigh, Terminal Exposure, The Time Traveller.

    There are a TON of Mastorakis Directed/Produced films still to be released on Blu-ray.

    For what it's worth, I watched The Children last night and found it to be a much better horror movie. It plays very much like a gooier, tackier American version of Who Can Kill a Child?, but it manages some atmosphere, a couple of shocks, and the acting for the most part ain't half bad (three things Mausoleum can't boast about). The Blu-ray.com review actually criticises the movie for allowing the parents to express grief and reluctance about the killing of the radioactive zombie kids. I found that to be one of the movie's strongest suits, giving credibility to a B movie plot by having the characters react in real world terms. I watched both movies late at night, but while The Children kept me engaged, I couldn't finish Mausoleum in one sitting - but hey, it sold out fast, so there must be a whole lot of fans who see something in it that I don't. :p

    I haven't seen Mausoleum since the VHS days so for me the purchase was more about nostalgia than actually really remembering much about the film. Also Vinegar Syndrome tends to deliver very good quality product so I figured I couldn't go wrong. I actually buy a lot of VS titles even if I don't really think they're good films because I want VS to prosper and I've always been happy with the transfers.

    Oh I do the same, willingly, but I’m more excited by the ones I know or are actually good...

    I went ahead and picked up a copy of Mausoleum with slip, sight-unseen. Now I'm wondering if I should even open it. I think I saw it available on Prime the other night...?

    You should go with your instinct. I bought Mausoleum with the slip as well, but I honestly didn't think it was that great when I first watched it on Vhs 20 years ago. Lately my interest has expanded to movies that at least have the same vibe / look of that era. Mausoleum definitely qualifies in that department. But I know that isn't the main qualifier to most. It's notoriety is based on the difficulty in acquiring an uncut version. I obtained an uncut composite a few years ago and it still was not much of an improvement.

    Sometimes seeing a good quality transfer can make the difference. Perhaps you should put on the Prime version and see if it even looks good.

    I like Mausoleum as a feminist film. Written by a woman, it bears examination as a treatise of repressed womanhood being a demonic force in the stifling climate of domesticity and multigenerational bored housewifery.

    I typically ignore the post-80s works. But I completely forgot about Grandmother's House.

    Most of those I listed are 80's films.

    Correction:

    I ignore post-80s and non-horror/thriller.

    I hope not - I just watched this and it's pretty awful. Also, is the Redemption release from a PAL source or something? It's annoyingly slightly sped up.
