Works for me too! :glasses:
At the New Beverly Cinema's annual all-night horrorthon last October they played a 35mm print of THE FINAL TERROR. I had never seen it before, and considering that it was the last film on the program (at 5 AM) I was prepared for a very crappy looking copy of a crappy movie. Instead I got a very good movie projected from an absolutely beautiful, almost mint condition 35mm print (although there were bits of very noticeable damage). I was taken aback, I go to a lot of 35mm screenings and usually prints from this era look pretty dumpy, but this one was gorgeous and hopefully it was one of the sources for this new HD transfer.
I don't understand this 5 print thing with Final Terror. There's a bloke on BR.com who claims to have lent Shout a pristine print for their Blu-ray and now this. I guess it's better than what's currently available but if there were better elements why didn't Shout take advantage of them?

I can hardly remember a damn thing about Deadly Eyes, except that I rented the big box VHS from a mom and pop video store as a youth.
However, I must have enjoyed it because I've been wanting it on Blu-Ray forever. Hopefully, there will be no 'issues' comparable to the upcoming Ravenous release.
Shout seems to do better with independent films than with big studio titles with regards to transfers. I think we're safe with Deadly Eyes, unless they're using an old master. If that were the case this would be on DVD only.
I remember seeing deadly eyes on the movie channel back around 84, I just mainly remember the movie theater and ending scenes, oh and the scatman Crothers scene.
I recall another rat movie from 83 with peter weller. called of unknown origin ..
When I get Deadly Eyes I think I'll watch that and Of Unknown Origin back to back.
I remember Of Unknown Origin vividly, it was filmed around Montreal if memory serves. Also, Shannon Tweed had a bit part. It was always a minor classic for me in the man vs. nature horror subgenre.
I just hope Deadly Eyes stands up if only in a cheesetastic sorta way.
DVD Drive-In reviews Deadly Eyes: http://www.dvddrive-in.com/reviews/a-d/deadlyeyes82blu.htm
They gave a pretty awesome review - looking forward to it! Dogs in Rats Clothing
I think DEADLY EYES and HELLHOLE are my two most anticipated Shout Factory releases. Glad EYES seems to have turned out well; hopefully they'll get the HELLHOLE issues figured out shortly!
