    I watched Dominque over the weekend. It looks great, and VS paid great attention to the transfer as it's the film's greatest strength. And its only one. Man, what a slog, and for what essentially turns out to be an extended episode of a horror-themed TV anthology show like Alfred Hitchcock Presents or something.

    Yeah. I have more nostalgia for the VHS trailer for Dominique than I do for the film itself. I don’t remember as all that much more than a retread of Diabolique.

    Just got my order. Got Evil Town, Savage Harbor and Hell Comes to Frogtown. Holy crap, those slip cover. Putting the graphic art aside. The quality, heavy stock, construction, etc... of the slip. And the the Frogtown one ....Whoa.

    I haven't bought a VS title since November 2018. The other slips I got where great, but never like these.(mostly talking about extra heavy weight, construction) Is this how all the slips are now? If so, which title started the "newer" type slips.

    Evil Town and Savage Harbor are the only two Slips of that type released thus far. The Hell Comes to Frogtown is what they call a "Splitcover" and the only other one released similar to that is the Slaughterhouse "Splitcover"

    Their other releases are still the same as their older Slipcover type...

    Oh ok. So just those four so far. They should all be like this. No joke, seriously unmatched against any other company. I like these better than steelbooks.

    It's like a friggn book cover. Solid.

    That looks amazing. I wish I liked the film because I sure as hell like that packaging.

    "Every year it gets harder and harder to beat the releases from the previous year. But we're fairly certain that everyone is gonna be pretty thrilled with this year's October lineup (unless you don't like Euro-gore, DTV insanity with Academy Award connections and never-on-disc slashers; but that's your problem).

    Anyway, since you're all probably aware that we're putting our Anders Palm's UNMASKED PART 25 (aka THE HANDS OF DEATH), we're gonna do one final tease before the big reveal on Friday…

    We're extraordinarily excited to be doing our very first horror box set, and all four of the films included have been given fresh 4K restorations. They also have some pretty strong pedigrees behind them…

    Then, if UNMASKED isn't enough Euro-gore for you, well, we've also got a real treat from the guy behind two of the most insane pieces of 70s [sorta] Euro-horror, period. And that's not an exaggeration. It’s also another 4K restoration (if you’re counting, that’s five for the month!).

    And lastly, who can resist a never-on-disc, regional 80s slasher? It's got gore, it's got nudity, it's got camping.

    If you can't stand the suspense, be aware that the October pre-orders will go live this coming Friday at roughly 12:01 AM EST. But it's never too early to start frantically hitting refresh on your computer over and over in the hope that it might go up 5 seconds earlier than expected."

    I hope this could be 1987's Blood Frenzy, one of my favourite still-on-VHS US regional slashers! It fits the description.

    Is Unmasked any good? I've never seen it but I'm curious.

    I enjoyed it, it's a UK movie, it's been a while since I saw it last, and I can't remember a lot, I do remember it has the killer narrating his life, showing us how and why he kills, I remember it being something to do with a woman, it definitely had some nice kills,

    Hope that helps.

    It doesn't help me a great deal, but it's a start haha. I feel like I remember seeing the cover for this in the video store back in the day. It's definitely familiar but I know I've never seen the actual film.
