    Pretty fun interview, but that's because Don just talks and talks and talks and all of it is gold. He talks quite a bit about the downfall of Anchor Bay.

    This was before the Demons/Demons 2 UHD announcement so he teases that.
    The Kindred is in authoring. May be in stock at their website before Demons' street date.
    Nothing about Tombs of the Blind Dead.

    Some things that stuck out for me:
    01:08:00 Maniac Cop "a possibility." Troma does not own the films Synapse has currently in their catalog.
    01:09:45 Black Roses and Rock 'n' Roll Nightmare the negatives are missing. Again, Troma does not own the films Synapse has currently in their catalog.
    01:21:00 Deadly Spawn is in the works. Still under restoration for a year and a half, but it's been delayed by COVID as the work is being done overseas. India I suppose.
    01:31:00 Lemora is discussed. This is a new tale but they looked into it when they did the teaser post years ago but currently the negative is missing. Then at the tail end Don says there's some "title issues" so we're hearing a lot of different things. I'm guessing there's more to it than what May's letting on.
    02:11:45 Coffin Joe has materials issues. Apparently another entity is pursuing materials, possibly for another region (maybe Arrow? They've done a release). But May "hasn't heard back from them." Probably not.

    Deadly Spawn has already had two blu-ray releases. The U.S. release was panned as a terrible transfer. I'm not sure about the German release.

    For anyone else who was disappointed in the Synapse BD release of Tenebrae only having the original mono soundtrack you be interested to know that the Japanese Happinet BD release has the 5.1 English re-mix as well as the 2.0 mono track. I think it's the only BD release that has the 5.1 soundtrack, certainly the only one I've ever found and I've got about 5 BD releases of Tenebrae now.

    It's very hard to find the Jap disc now (I just got one direct from Japan and it cost almost $150!), but if you watch Tenebrae as often as I do then the 5.1 mix is a must have as the atmosphere of the movie and particular the music is 10x better. The print seems to be the same as the French BD and the Arrow re-release, so it has that slight jump in the music during the first murder scene (which was corrected on the Synapse version) and all the "in movie" text is Italian with no option for English (an extra feature on the Synapse version) but otherwise it looks and sounds great. The Jap subs can be disabled when selecting the 5.1 English track. This will definitely be the one I reach for on the shelf in future. :)

    I'm half expecting this to show up on 4k sometime soon.

    So, I guess I'll get this in 2024, when he finally releases a standard edition.

    Bang the drum for the steelbook. The faster those sell out, the sooner the standard gets a release.
