Thanks Chomp, I was actually just coming here to ask about these.

Most curious about Gator Bait 2. Suck that they are DVD-Rs, but fortunately they are reasonably priced, unlike most of the other studios.

Can I ask you to post some screen captures? I really want to see how they look before ordering them as I would have to import them from the US wich is kind of costly for us.

Yeah I can post screen caps tomorrow, unless someone else beats me to it. I watched the “Making of Gator Bait” featurette, which is actually just a Q&A with Beverly and Ferd, but in it they state the transfer was taken directly from Paramount’s vaults. So its my thinking that it was shot for Full Screen seeing as it was made for Paramount Home Video?….but I was always under the impression Gator Bait was shown in theaters as I have a theatrical one sheet and IMDB states it was shot in 1.85 : 1? Not sure how accurate that is though? I really wish they would have elaborated more on the transfer. But yeah…other than the artifacting, I thought the transfer looked pretty good.

I also noticed on the cover, someone with lousy Photoshop skills tried enhancing Claudia Jennings bust size…there’s a faint “shadow mark” under the right breast that looks obviously fake and so obviously out of place. I have two Gator Bait video posters and that line doesn’t exist on either of them…believe me I know every single line and crevice on that image. As a kid, I used to just stare for minutes on end at the VHS cover during every trip to the video store.

They can be right on this. Unless I'm wrong the film are always shoot Open matte and the theatre projector does the correct framing.

I just notice what you say about the cover zooming it and it's sure a badly done job

and please tell me the english and espanol line isn't on the front cover...

Unfortunately yeah…it’s a hideous layout design.

Fuck, I didn’t even think of it being open matte. Ha….to tell ya the truth, I think you are right because there is really no evidence of Pan & Scan.

Not particularly violent at all...even for exploitation standards.

Ugh, DVD-R's? I guess they're still cheap at under $10, but the coverart looks cheap.

I hope they fucking release Rocktober Blood!

So, what the heck happened here? Everything is out of stock, and no resellers have them either.

beats me, I have mine ordered via an Amazon Canada marketplace seller since tuesday but the order is stuck in the shipping soon mode and the seller told me by email today the order was processing... So not much I can do, except waiting as I don't want to loose my order priority.
