    I bought the other two secret packages pre order they did for Black Friday.

    But to shell out for 4 films. Three that are secret. I don't know, maybe it's just me. But that's getting a little carried away now imho. Just stick to the Black Friday once a year gimmick.

    I was expecting Corruption Of Chris Miller to be more of a proto-slasher. It's mostly a 2 hour melodrama about a woman and her step-daughter squabbling over the same man. However, there is an amazing 5-minute sequence where a hooded sickle-wielding killer goes on a rampage, which is easily the highlight of the movie. I was under the impression that would play a more prominent role, considering the killer made the cover.

    Your comment reminds me of the one sheet. Horror? Slasher? Female Drama? ;):

    Apparently Jeff Gittel & Joe Rubin were this week's guests on the Shock Waves podcast. I haven't listened, yet, but reportedly they announced The Passing and The Vineyard as future releases.

    The Passing was mentioned late last year, but I had completely forgotten about it. Sounds really bizarre.

    They also mention that the got Splatter University and The Suckling in a package deal with another film that hasn't been announced. I'm thinking that third film is probably Flesh-Eating Mothers.

    just saw The Darkroom

    the back of the cover mentions that it's an American take on the giallo but those words should be taken with a large pinch of salt, even though you can find a couple of elements here that might be inspired by that genre

    it's OK entertainment but I expected a little more bang for your buck in terms of sleaze and style

    that said, the film looked like it was shot yesterday, a very clear transfer

    No, but I might have missed those as I did watch it with a group of people and there were times we were talking with each other (also the reason why I will watch this one again on my own some time in the future).

    As many of you have probably guessed, there have been additional delays on SATAN'S SLAVE...

    Contrary to our usual workflow, the licensor on this title requested that the restoration be done in the UK (where the film elements are stored) so that director Norman J. Warren could supervise and approve.

    Unfortunately, when the facility doing the work exported the final master, they accidentally cropped it to roughly 2:1 (the film was shot in Techniscope and intended as 2.35:1). Although we quickly alerted the facility to the issue, expecting it to be a simple fix/re-export, this was apparently not the case and they've informed us that the error occurred much earlier on in their file conversion workflow and thus will need more time to rectify it. As of today, it's still 50/50 as to whether we'll get the fixed file in time to make our manufacturing deadline for May. Sadly, this is all out of our control.

    However, in the event that SS does not arrive in time, we're going to push up Peter Wittman's Texas lensed satanic dog movie, PLAY DEAD for May and save SS for later in the year. If we get SS in time, PLAY DEAD will be coming mid-Summer.

    This should all be decided in the next week or so.

    Nothing I need, and the prices aren’t low enough to counter Bull Moose after shipping. I love Paul Bartel but Lust in the Dust sucked.
