Code Red's The Strangeness

It's coming, in August most likely:

I've just recently watched The Strangeness for the first time and thought it wasn't too bad. Will be picking this up when available.

I have never seen this other than about the last twenty minutes or so which I caught on the USA network way back in the mid 80's. I have always been interested in checking it out. Looking forward to this release!

My favorite cave horror flick. I'll definitely pick it up when released. The VHS was too dark at times.

I generally do not like revised cover art but this one is a winner. I think that the images of the minors give some tension as they appear headed towards their doom. The original VHS art just lacks that feeling as all we get is the open cave adit and the skeletal figure in the foreground. This one is a winner and will be a great addition to look forward to.

Never heard of this, but looks good to me.

Found this on DVD Drive-In:

Quote:
On August 18th, Code Red DVD will unleash THE STRANGENESS! It is 1980 and the price of gold is soaring. Old timers warn would be prospectors to stay away from the Gold Spike Mine. It has stood as a ghastly reminder of the horrors of a century before when the earth violently shook and over twenty miners were killed, their bodies stripped of flesh. The residents of Basin City talked of the grisly murders only in whispers from which legends of The Strangeness grew. A small group of explorers innocently make their way to the Gold Spike. Only one knows the incredible secret of the mine, and here the nightmare begins.....! NIGHTMARE USA's Stephen Thrower described the film as having, "Ominous atmosphere, flashes of humour, and a truly startling monster!" Shot in 16mm, Code Red presents the film in 16x9 widescreen (as requested by the director) from a HiDef master. Extras include 6 short films from Chris Huntley and Mark Sawicki; audio commentary from Sawicki, Huntley, and the director; on camera interviews with all three; and an extensive still gallery. MSRP is $22.98.

Thanks Code Red - good to have your input on this as its not fair for any blame to be put on your company when you have done all that you can. You are putting out some awesome titles at the moment and I cant wait to get the Strangeness!

It annoys that companys such as Amazon (and the rest evidently!) do not bother ordering copies in time for those that have taken the oppertunity to preorder like they would with a mainstream movie. People start to cancel orders as they dont expect them to become availible when you see 'ships in 4 weeks' on the day of release.

Retailers need to get their acts together - lots of copies of this movie are just sitting in a warehouse when they should be making their way to our houses!

Whoa, I haven't seen this one in many years...and that was a degraded VHS rental. I'll definitely pick it up when it's released.

I actually like that updated cover more than the original. Which is rare. But I think it is because the original had little happening, and here you guys have added a rich red with leering evil eyes. The people remind me of 'Band of Brothers' for some reason. Hehe. Thanks CR! I'll be getting this too!
