    Beyond the extras, how's the video quality? I know Kino usually delivers. Also, was there any deals on the Blu anywhere or did you guys pay close to release price?

    It's sourced from an older transfer, but still looks quite good in HD.

    Thankfully we did get 24-bit audio bump on this one, probably due to Scorpion handling it. Kino releases generally have only 16-bit audio.

    Thanks. On a side note Teen Witch was playing in HD on cable recently. I've said this before, still think there a connection there to whats getting released. I even see the Warlock movies being played currently. ;)

    Teen Witch has been available in HD on Netflix and on TV (mostly ABC Family) for years.

    I got mine through last month's B2G1 sale at Target. Ordered Teen Witch, They're Playing With Fire, and The Wanderers together for $18.99 each. With the B2G1 promo, they averaged out to $12.66 each.

    That's great! I hope it's got the supplements that were made for Dark Sky's recalled disc.

    It doesn't say the year, but if it's No Man's Land (1987) then I'm gonna be happy. Forgotten little gem.

    DVD Talk reviews They're Playing with Fire: http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/71943/theyre-playing-with-fire/

    [​IMG]

    "I had only seen They're Playing With Fire on VHS long ago (and had to go out of town to rent it, as no local stores even had it) and missed the Anchor Bay DVD that was out before, so I'm glad Kino saw fit to release it on Blu-Ray in an archival quality presentation with some noteworthy present-day thoughts from Sybil Danning. (I'm hoping this will mean more New World Pictures releases on Blu-Ray as well.) It walks just the right side of the line to fall into so-bad-it's-good territory and gets a Recommended for fans of 80s schlock, but I'd still advise anyone who only watches "good" movies and doesn't see the attraction of bad ones to skip it as I don't want to be held responsible!"

    Don't recall where I read it but I think Kill...Baby, Kill has been pushed back a couple of months to August to allow for a last minute extra. Arrow is supposedly releasing this so maybe I'll just wait for that version.
