    Most available versions of DOMINIQUE have looked awful so a restoration is welcome. That was one of the early films produced by Milton Subotsky after Amicus Films folded in the mid 70's.It did modest business in theaters but became a small hit on VHS.It's in the vein of some of Hammer's "mini-Hitchcocks" like SCREAM OF FEAR and PARANOIC.

    Assuming this will also be coming from VS in the future. They also had better condition elements for Guru than AGFA apparently had.

    So glad to hear that Fleshpot on 42nd Street is now in more competent hands and has a release date that’s not too far off, I’m infinitely more confident with that March date from Vinegar Syndrome than I would be with any date given by AGFA at this point. It’s too bad about Guru: The Mad Monk not being included but I wanted Fleshpot more anyway and hopefully that will come too at some point, preferably from Vinegar Syndrome. Great news! Needless to say, Fleshpot on 42nd Street has been pre-ordered.

    Same. When our family got Showtime back in 1979, this was one of the very few horror movies they used to show. Showtime rarely got horror movies until late 1981. "Dominique" played seemingly non-stop. I tried watching it every time it was on.

    Now that's what I like to hear! That puts my mind at ease. VS does excellent work and I imagine Guru isn't far behind either.

    AGFA confirmed today that Guru is still coming from them at a later date.

    Scream of Fear and Paranoiac are actually my two favorite Hammer titles, I'm now very interested in Dominique after hearing that.

    Could you post the reverse blu-ray image for Wacko? I am debating whether to get the slipcover, or just wait until it appears in store without it.

    I know comedy and humor, much more than horror and fear, are a very subjective thing but...

    I hope that VS won't release anymore stuff similar to Wacko because this was horribly unfunny to me (granted, there were about 5 gags that made me laugh).

    I'm grabbing it because of the completist in me, but I do remember it being very hit and miss, and miss, and miss.

    Still better than Class Reunion though. WTF were they thinking with that one?

    I bought wacko because I just like that era of slasher parody, but it's pretty bad.

    I actually really like class reunion but part of that is def nostalgia filter.

    Class Reunion is mildly entertaining enough by itself, but I think it’s a let down when you have National Lampoon tied it. You’d expect a much higher caliber flick based off experience with those guys. There’s nostalgia there, kinda like Student Bodies, but not enough for me to care.
