They have FUNERAL HOME! ASYLUM! and many more! :banana:
Most, if not all, of the titles are public domain, but that site is pretty awesome. Thanks for sharing this!
Funeral Home definitely isn't public domain - it's a Canadian tax shelter film, so the reason it's not released now is that it would suggest there is a demand for it, and if there was a demand for it, then it would theoretically make money, and the people who claimed it as a tax write-off would lose their investment. Thanks, capitalism!
Damn, is that true? Wow. That's a whole new category of film I've never thought of. I wonder how many other non-pd movies are like that?
Head On (1980) a.k.a. Fatal Attraction is another one. Even though released on video in the US, this Canadian tax shelter flick will most likely never be available on DVD. It's a shame because it's a great film
Is this Canadian tax shelter thing the reason why '80s movies that "should" be covered by copyright law like Driller Killer and Christmas Evil always seem to be included on public domain lists?
I don't know the reasons for those two American films, but that's the reason why tons of movies like MEATBALLS 2 & 3, RITUALS, DEATH WEEKEND, SPASMS, JUNIOR, AMERICAN NIGHTMARE, THE CORPSE EATERS, CANNIBAL GIRLS and CURTAINS will likely never make it to DVD anytime soon.
And of course, RAD. The best.
I thought Curtains was on DVD....I've had my eye out for a copy for awhile, but haven't come across one yet, I remember seeing a thread quite awhile ago in which slow gave me some hope.
Driller Killer? why would I watch it on a website that I already own on special edition dvd by Cult Epics. That means that it isn't public domain, right? And does that mean that it's also copright infrigement?
http://13shadesofblack.com/ is another good site with free horror movies.
Not really. Criterion released a special edition of Carnival of Souls and Elite did the special "authorized" edition of Night of the Living Dead. Neither release negates the public domain status of those movies.
Yeah, I was curious about the whole "public domain" issue when I saw Asylum up there. Just bought that on DVD, too.
Check out www.watch-movies.net Some really good stuff. They even have "To All a Goodnight" and "Bad Ronald"
I thought I saw Funeral Home on dvd not too long ago. Can anyone explain why Canadian Tax Shelter films are impossible to get released onto dvd nowadays?
