Synapse Films is looking at picking up some of the Barrel releases.

I was very sad to see Panik House / Casa Negra go under. I loved every one of their releases. Unfortunately Synapse Film's distribution rights with them has lapsed and Don May say all unsold product was destroyed.

Even though I know they are far from gone, I miss the great discs with all the extras that Something Weird used to do with Image.

Seems like Trinity Home Entertainment is gone too? They re-released a few Sony titles two or three years ago and that's the last I've heard from them.

They were absorbed by Peace Arch a few years ago: http://investing.businessweek.com/re...capId=34280929

Simitar Entertainment (off-shoot of K-tel Records)
- I loved that they put out alot of the USA Up All Night related b-movies.

Platinum Disc Corporation
- Before Echo Bridge got them, they really came through with some gems, one of the few companies to also put out Skinemax classics on dvd.

BCI Eclipse/Brentwood
- Curse you Navarre corp!

Goodtimes
- May have been the first dvd company to have Halloween 2 with television scenes.

Lucky 13
- Pleasing the fans is not profitable because they did a great job with their limited output.

I miss BCI/Deimos/whatever the company was called, some of those releases are really treasured parts of my DVD collection. The "Welcome to the Grindhouse" series was amazing when it was first coming out, the fact that they were doing a Paul Naschy collection/box set, etc. Cliff MacMillan was really doing something awesome with that company.

No Shame was also amazing, I bought their "Dark Waters" set just because of the fact that it came with a stone amulet and amazing packaging!

Also, that "Dark Waters" set and the aforementioned "Dust Devil" 5 disc set makes me think we need to do a "best of horror DVD sets" thread.

I definitely miss BCI/Brentwood. Even their early public domain/bootleg-esque releases were interesting. I discovered a lot of oddball movies that way, which I would later on upgrade. I'm glad they got around to releasing a lot of Paul Naschy flicks. I don't think those will get a re-release in the US any time soon. It's too bad BCI's blu-ray of those films have some funky encoding that creates a stuttering effect.
