And then we have the Twilight Zone season sets on BD that also looks perfect, razor sharp with all the filmgrain intact.

So not everything they release is mediocre, far from it.
They seem to do a good job with titles that they've had the rights to for awhile. But, the acquisition of the Studio Canal titles saw them taking a nosedive in BD quality (no remastering, PAL sourced transfers, massive amounts of dirt and scratches). I just hope the same isn't true for the Sony and Anchor Bay acquisitions.

Amazon has the coverart posted for the Hellbound: Hellraiser II Blu-ray

It looks pretty much like the recycled artwork from Anchor Bay's 20th Anniversary Edition DVD...albeit now with the "Midnight Madness Series" banner.

Whatever works, I'm just happy that they're releasing it.

Has anyone viewed Image's Jawbreaker blu-ray? How's the quality? I'm also curious about Apt Pupil.
Jawbreaker looks outstanding, like a brand new film, not one from 1999. I figured it would look good in HD because of the bold, bright colors saturated throughout. Visually, it's gorgeous. It's 1.85:1 1080p. Unfortunately, the director's commentary track from the DVD was not retained. Just picked up Blue Crush (2002) on BD today. That's another film that should look gorgeous in HD.

Funny you mention that. I have Jawbreaker and Beyond the Darkness on blu coming from amazon. I'm excited to see all those colors pop in HD. I'm a big fan of Jawbreaker (saw it twice in the theater even). Columbia has done a great job of getting their smaller catalog titles out there in HD. It gives me hope (and I'm sure im the only one), that someday Spice World will get an HD upgrade.
How does Blue Crush look? Worth the upgreade?

^ I am curious about Blue Crush on blu-ray myself. I caught it on Starz HD not too long ago, and it didn't look too great. The image seemed dark, and it didn't have that HD pop. I hope they used a better source for the blu-ray.

I kind of hope they re-release the Angel Collection. That's one I've always been pissed I didn't buy the first time around.

Does anyone know if this deal includes Escape 2000? I want to pick up the Anchor Bay DVD while it's on sale at DeepDiscount, but I might hold off if there is a possible blu-ray release in the near future?

I never expect to see those films again. Sucks as I had that set, watched it and thought I wouldn't ever want to see them again, sold it for a fraction of todays prices, and now want to try the films again.
I am next up if anyone is silly enough to post a set on swapadvd though. Started at 3, so either 2 people posted them, or 2 people gave up waiting. I don't mind waiting, and it's had the #1 slot for like 3 years.

Hey, I got a copy of Caged Heat from there, so anything is possible!

Pretty amazing what the Angel set goes for now. I grabbed my set new back when it was in print and spent around $23.

Some stuff goes OOP and gets rare really fast though. I remember Hastings having a ton of the Six Pack DVD's not too long ago, now it's quite rare.

EXACT same story with me.

Don't tell anyone! I did download the first film again and liked it a bit better than before, but even though it was a dvd rip I found, it looked like ass.
Although, if I recall, the real dvds looked like ass too! The film will never live up to what my demented 12-13 year old brain imagined from the newspaper ads. Nobody has made that film yet, although Gutterballs was probably on the right track!

I mostly just want them because I don't have them anymore if that makes sense. Fucking collector in me. Ironic though, I want this back and could not possibly care less about not having the Sleepaway Camp set anymore. Guess I do love bad shit.
