    If it's any consolation Maybrick I haven't received an e-mail yet either and i placed a big order at the beginning of the sale. I did see a post on Facebook that they were working hard to get everyone's order out so I'm not too worried yet.

    Here's good news for Don't Be Afraid of the Dark fans. The Warner Archive blu-ray looks SPECTACULAR. Great transfer. And the blue tint has been restored to the day-for-night shots in the climax. They still look over-exposed, but they're much improved from the remastered WA DVD.

    Is that sale still going on? I was planning on making an order but then forgot about it once the proverbial shit hit the fan re Coronavirus and forgot all about it.

    Oh, and I finally got an email last week or so saying that it shipped on the 18th. I’m still waiting for it along with an amazon.uk order for the Network edition of The Monster Club.

    Bodies are mysteriously disappearing all over town, and a new wax museum has just opened. Is there a connection? But of course! In this horror classic, Fay Wray (King Kong) stars as the intended next victim of a mad wax sculptor obsessed with her resemblance to one of his prior creations. Glenda Farrell plays a quintessential wisecracking newspaper reporter, and noted actor Lionel Atwill is the deranged artist who loses his studio to a fire set by his partner. Filmed in the early Two-Color Technicolor® process, The Mystery of the Wax Museum was considered a lost film for decades, until a well-worn print was discovered nearly 50 years ago. Thanks to the meticulous new restoration presented on this disc, the film can now be experienced as intended.

    Very excited to see Wax Museum. By all accounts the restoration is stunning.

    Hopefully Dr. X isn't far behind.

    Dr. X's restoration is almost complete. I listened to a podcast earlier with one of the guys who worked on the Wax Museum and he has indicated as such. Not sure when WB will put it on blu, but I suspect it will be within a year's time, especially if Wax does very well (which I suspect it will).
