I'll still be buying the blu though - The Evictors is a fine film. It's a shame that it's an extra though, because there's no extras for an extra. Funny now I look back on it, a scope film that somehow managed to hook me in on VHS of all things! When I look back at Scope movies on VHS these days I can barely make it through (assuming I do, that is).

Oh and BTW, do not watch Zodiac! Trust me, that's worse!
Haha! Well I was cooking lunch and ended up washing the dishes while it played. I don't think I could have made it to the end otherwise.

Oh really? Well I seem to let curiosity get the better of me, even when I've been warned prior. It seem I like to punish myself.

Oh and while we're on the topic of being board; I watch the original Hills Have Eyes the other night and almost pulled my hair out because it was so slow and tedious. Then I thought it would be smart to check the sequel out. On the bright side it made me want to watch the remake again and heck, it even made the sequel to that look good.

ZODIAC is a masterpiece -- easily one of the best American films of the last 20 years.

Zodiac is one of the best crime movies ever made. Town That Dreaded Sundown is pretty bad. Just fast forward to the Trombone scene, the only good part in the entire movie.

I saw Town That Dreaded Sundown as a kid (probably the mid '90s), and I was extremely disappointed. The Dawn Wells chase scene was fantastic, but the rest was ho-hum.

That said, I haven't seen it since and I'm really excited to revisit. I think back then I was expecting a guy in a hooded sack butchering teenagers ala Friday The 13th Part 2. Now that I know what I'm getting into, I'm sure I'll love it. My tastes have changed considerably since then.

I love The Evictors though. This set would be worth the $17 for The Evictors DVD alone. Whether you love one, the other, or both, this set is a steal! Can't wait to get my hands on it!

I think Town is a decent movie (The Evictors is way better, pathetic that it's being buried as a glorified extra), but the best film with a true-life mystery killer is Memories of Murder.

Wow, not a lot of love for Town?!?!

It's by far not the best flick I've ever seen, but I love the story and history behind it. I think it's a fun watch for sure. I recall the first time I saw it as a kid and expected more, but upon future viewings began to respect it for it was and found it quite enjoyable. Never seen Evictors.

I'm hoping this will be my reaction.

I thought Last House On The Left was dumb and goofy as a kid too, but now I find it incredibly effective.

Anyone think Shout! might get a hold of Halloween 6? There's were a lot of rumors over the past year or so that another blu was coming out that had the Producer's Cut as well.

The Day of the Dead cover has been released. I know I'm going to be in the minority here, but I think it's hideous. We have to wait until the summer for the extras to be announced.

I wouldn't say hideous, but it ain't pretty. All I see on my shelf is the spine however. So long as the transfer on my screen looks good and not a DNR smear with EE everywhere then I'm good with the release.

I too only care about the audio/video upgrade. Between the Arrow and Starz blu's there are more than enough extras. I even have two DVD's of footage of Savini doing the effects. Getting back to why I think the cover looks hideous, does the alligator really need to dominate the bottom right hand corner? If you blink at the wrong time, you miss the green bastard entirely. Where's the spider crawling on the guys arm then? Bub looks weird, Dr. Frankenstein looks like a different actor and there are way too many zombies and almost no main characters at all. Before anyone replies with "Be happy with what you get, and stop complaining about covers!" I am just adding my two cents. Screams covers have been so cool, that I kinda had my hopes up with this one. I'm still ordering it as soon as it's going to be made available.
