    80s horror fans have already had a few nice surprises this year with announcements like SLEDGEHAMMER, but this one takes the cake. Scorpiron Releasing will be debuting the following favorites coming out in September: HUMONGOUS, AMERICAN NIGHTMARE, THE CARPENTER, THE DEVIL WITHIN HER, THE HUMAN EXPERIMENTS, THE MARK OF CAIN and NOTHING BUT THE NIGHT. As if that weren't good enough, they're also re-releasing the beloved and hard to find FINAL EXAM, THE INCUBUS and THE HOUSE ON SORORITY ROW. All nine DVDs will be on a new "Katrina's Nightmare Theatre" line featuring intros and extros by WWE star Katarina Leigh Walters. It's about time we had a new Elvira!

    I'm salivating too much at the thought of finally seeing the Canadian giallo sleeze-classic, AMERICAN NIGHTMARE cleaned up on DVD. I'll just go ahead and quote their official press release:

    Also, here's a sample of the cover art for each disc, staying very true to the original poster art:

    Excited?

      "the day after halloween", huh? that looks interesting. i'm just puzzled by their exclamation mark placement. it seems kind of!!!!! random.

      Rent it beforehand if you can is my best advice. Snapshot (local title, and much better one IMO) is certainly an interesting title, but probably not in the way you expect. That North American title is just silly!! :eek1:

      Shape22, i thought the same thing, its interlaced for sure. Certain shots look good. and brighten up, but look at the beginning when it says :36 years later: it is interlaced big time. Definalty not film like. I bet if anyone has a good copy of the cinemax braodcasting it would look better. Funny thing is, i taped vice squad off cinemax in 1995 and that copy has way better colors and really clean compared to the anchor bay dvd , which is too grainy..

      In this thread, back in November, you'll notice a lot of discussion on the Humongous transfer. It is from a tape master and not interlaced.

      Anyone pick up the Whispers or Mark Of Cain / ThrillKill discs yet?

      Had Whispers and Mark of Cain/Thrillkill show up Friday and Double Exposure arrived 30 min ago! I watched all 3 over the weekend, didn't care for Thrillkill much but the other 2 were decent enough. Gonna give DE a spin later tonite! I'm really loving the titles scorpions been putting out, hell of a lot better than code reds Maria's B-movie banner, already gave up on those.

      I definitely want to pick up Whispers, as I remember reading the book. Tempted to get Mark Of Cain / Thrillkill out of curiosity.

      How's the PQ, and are there any extras?

      Are you judging by the actual movies themselves, or the way the hostess in each present themselves?

      Pq's decent enough, though all 3 are full frame. No extras save Katarina's intro segments, but they're pretty cheap right now. Double exposures 2.35:1 with 2 audio commentaries and an interview

      The hostess' really aren't a factor for me, I picked up Haunted, Vampire at Midnight and Love me Deadly/Campus Corpse and wasn't really impressed by any of them. Thoroughly boring even for schlock, and I love schlock!

      I somehow missed that Death Ship was coming...I almost over paid for this yesterday but decided to wait. So happy I did! Love this movie so much!!!!

      Any details on Death Ship? I already have the UK disc so some girl doing intros for it isn't worthy of a double dip, unless by some miracle they managed to obtain decent materials for it.
