    Anyone here watched the vipco story doc on the spookiest set? If so you had any problems? Not sure if mine is faulty or a pressing issue but it's funked, started skipping at 40 mins and proceed throughout the duration, it was bad from 40 mins to about 70 mins then died down. I tried cleaning it and tried it on 3 different players, same issue. It's annoying as I brought the set to watch the docs.

    Someone on the blu-ray.com forums mentioned the same issue, hots4. (Unless that was your post. Are you dr. wai over there?)

    I'll check my copy later and let you know what I find

    My copy played okay. But a friend also had a similar issue with the film Buddies

    Thank you.

    Strange then, it must be a re-pressing issue?

    VS have had some issues with playback skipping problems of some pressings. Mountaintop Motel Massacre is one that I can recall.

    You should probably just contact VS about it. Their customer service is top notch and I'm sure they'll get you another copy.

    I feel like the March 27th 4K announcement will be RAD. A 4K restoration was supposed to screen at SXSW before it was cancelled.

    I hope it's something a little more well known this time.

    RAD definitely has a cult following. I was under the impression it's pretty well known by '80s film aficionados.

    Anyway, full April line-up has been announced.
    Forgotten Gialli
    Dolly Dearest
    Pale Blood
    (the unannounced debut MGM title)

    ...and a VS exclusive slipcover for the AGFA / Bleeding Skull release of The McPherson Tape which surely won't be included with subcriptions.

    If VS can actually score RAD and release it in 4K, I will support then 'til the day I die. I guess we'll know on March 27th.

    It is without a doubt my most wanted release of any film, never before even having a DVD release due to rights/licensing issues. It was the bible of my Freestyle club (Endless Rotation) back in the 80's and we watched it on a regular basis.
