My guesses are either THE KINDRED, which they had been trying to release for a long time, or they finally got clearance to use the lost footage for HALLOWEEN and are putting together a new ultimate cut.

Oh yeah I totally forgot about that...shit, that was like 2-3 years ago that Don posted that...something about having footage of the young Myers POV shot's without the eye-hole filter? I can't remember all the details.

It would be awesome if it was Halloween with a color correction. Not sure how I feel about having an entirely new cut of the film, but seeing the footage as a bonus feature would be mind-blowing!

The Kindred would be pretty cool as well, but not quite sure it would garnish the kind of giddy tone as evident in Don's recent post. It sounds like its gotta be a big time name here.

I'm going with NotLD/Dawn. Maybe. We know Dawn and Martin are up for grabs. I don't know the true state of Night.

+1

Dawn is completely absent from the Anchor Bay website. Night of the Demons could be a lesser possibility as that is also missing.

I, too, think this news sounds right.

And I'm sure The Kindred will indeed becoming because I know I've seen it on one of their release schedule Blu-ray inserts stating "Coming Soon", so I'd say that's already been announced and is not part of this announcement.

The true state of NOTLD is that it's Public Domain. Anyone can own it (ANYone).

I'll take you up on your suggestion with Dawn Of The Dead (1978) however since that does look likely; it's not with Anchor Bay anymore (I checked the site), Synapse just release The Definitive Document Of The Dead and that seems now like a possible clue.

I wonder though if the annoucement will be the 3 secret titles that Don announced long ago. That said, my choices are Bad Taste and Meet The Feebles (with Bad Taste, seeing is how this year marks the 25th anniversary of the film, Peter Jackson's filmmaking career and his newest film The Hobbit, a new release is definitely in order).

A pair of '70s US adult titles coming from Synapse's Impulse sublabel in February:

Same Time Every Year:

Synapse wouldn't release NotLD without the involvement of Image Ten who produced it and still have the original negative. Don's had a lot of involvement with Image Ten on the Elite release and the Weinstein release. I'm sure he's been working towards that goal of getting it under the Synapse banner.

I'd forgotten about those "three titles" which I was shocked to learn WASN'T Vampire Circus, Twins of Evil or Hands of the Ripper once announced. "What could possibly be bigger than that?" I wonder if that fell through. I don't think it's anything else Hammer on his mind as the big titles like Dracula and Frankenstein are out of the question.

Bad Taste and Meet the Feebles has been in the back of my mind as well. They're not as "huge" but to actually work with Peter Jackson would be huge so I could see him being as excited about that as anything else.

So Synapse still hasn't announced the three titles?

Some more Nikkatsu pink films coming in March from their Impulse sublabel, including one on blu! I haven't seen FAIRY IN A CAGE, but it's widely regarded as one of the best pinku eigas around.

Blu: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...SIN=B00AY60AT6

I hope so. I picked up a blu-ray of Dawn from Austria which contains the Argento cut. It's inferior to the Arrow and Starz bd's in picture quality. I would love it if Synapse or Shout! acquired the rights and releases all three versions.

I wish Synapse or Shout! would wrangle the Halloween rights from Anchor Bay.

I may have a hunch that Synapse may have gotten Dawn because:

A.) It's not on Anchor Bay's site anymore hence they lost the rights.

B.) Synapse just released The Definitive Document Of The Dead. A possible clue no less.
