    Street date on Goodnight God Bless was March 5th, but two weeks later and crickets. No shipping notice or anything?

    Anyone get theirs?

    My pre-order of Goodnight God Bless arrived today. It seems they've learned since their last pre-order, and are now shipping things in boxes with a lot of bubble wrap as protection. Needless to say, it arrived mint this time! :)

    Goodnight God Bless was friggin' bizarre.

    I doubt any of the following would be true "spoilers" or reveal anything important, but...

    A "Canadian" production, but shot in the UK? The main actor fakes a horrible "US" accent to the point you just hate his guts... and why is an American even working 100% as a UK police officer? I don't really see why they bothered making him an "American" in the first place...it served absolutely no purpose in the script at all. There's some odd plot holes in the film.

    I had heard that the film has one of the "most shocking openings in cinema ever" but it seemed rather tame and mostly shot off camera/edited, even by 1987 standards. It's not like there was much blood/gore in this one.

    ... the very end confessional shot of the film was cool, but I'll be damned if I could even understand what the "voice" was saying even after rewinding it a couple of times.

    I'm still trying to process this one. I attempted to listen to the commentary track, but the two "film critics" got annoying really fast. I do still need to read the included booklet, so perhaps that will be a worthwhile read?

    Edit: Okay, the booklet (a textual Interview really) is definitely enlightening. The "director" had never shot a film before, and just up and left during filming to go to Cannes to sell the picture in advance, leaving other crew to direct about 25% of the film. The script was written on the fly, the budget was apparently very low, etc..

    Now, Death Collector... I do own the old DVD from Media Blasters, and it's a pretty cool movie. 4K scan? Nice!
