    I don't understand their whole interlacing deal. How hard is it to just make a transfer progressive? This is 2010. Luckily, the PS3 fixes interlacing (I can't tell the Madman DVD they put out is actually interlaced when watching it) but with interlacing you lose out on resolution, so you're not even getting the fullest out of the transfer they made if they're just gonna release it interlaced.

    It's perplexing. Code Red's first couple of DVD releases were Interlaced, and then they released all future DVD's progressively encoded...up until the releases of the last few months that is. New authoring house? who knows.

    Worst part is Bill himself is fucking clueless. So that's the impression I get from them as of late. "OMG the transfer for MADMAN is inferior! I'm shutting down code red effective this coming summer!" :spit:

    Hey, been visiting this website since 2001, never registered to post here however. I've been following this thread for a long time and just decided to throw my 2 cents in. As a collector I am of course a big fan of Blue Underground, Synapse, etc., but Code Red is my favorite DVD label, bar none. Never did I expect a label to release cult classics like Messiah Of Evil, The Redeemer, Sole Survivor, Sweet Sixteen, Love Me Deadly- the list goes on. Bill wears his heart on his sleeve, and I can understand that. Most Code Red releases you can tell have been given respect, and that low budget work ethic is endearing to me as a fan.

    I am eager to see NIGHTMARE and NIGHT WARNING as well. Hell, I would love for Bill to decide to just settle for the VHS master for a MUTILATOR release. Just got The UNDERTAKER in the mail and watched yesterday, and that looked good in my opinion, the transfer does't always have to be pretty for these types of films! But even if The Mutilator doesn't come to fruition, I still want to send some kind words out to CODE RED. THANKS for all the cool dvd's you've painstakingly put out! It will be a sad day for me when Code Red closes shop.

    Everybody has the right to his opinion.

    Some are worthless and some are not.

    No, it's Bill's incompetency, insecurity and instability that makes him rarely visit these forums. Stop kissing ass.

    No they are bashing Bill not Code Red. Bill is a big boy and he can take care of himself.

    Well I for one I'm not bashing Bill nor Code Red (and never will). The company delivered some good titles this year (can you say Horror High?) and they having a little bit oof trouble so the least we could do is help them get through this hardship.

    Reading this thread you's think that the success or failure of a company rests on message board chatter. I doubt that some harsh criticism is what's hurting CR. It's more likely bad business deals.

    No kidding. Bad business deals and sketchy distribution of their titles, and lack of any real advertising is likely what's hurting them.

    Personally, I'm too poor these days to "blind buy" like I used to many years ago. Does anyone know why they don't put their titles on Netflix? Is there some sort of hold on them or are they too "small" or what?

    They said previously that they don't make any money by selling a few copies to Netflix, and it would eat their profits as many would simply rent them instead of blind buying the titles.
