    This is just the first of many announcements to come. Scream Factory has said they will be announcing a new title every Friday for the next few months, so there are many more opportunities for these titles to show up.


    They have said in the past that it will definitely be on blu-ray, however I don't believe they have announced a date yet.

    God I hope they get ahold of The Burning. Please for the love of Christ, Shout, make this happen.

    Thank you, CPT HOOK - I will keep my fingers crossed, then! I have been following Shout Factory on facebook, but I hadn't caught the bit about them announcing a new title every Friday - really something to look forward to! As is Deadly Blessing on blu, so thanks for filling me in. ;)

    When you consider the titles Scream Factory announced last Friday--TerrorVision and The Nest--it doesn't really give me the feeling that they got any of the big name stuff. My thinking is that MGM held onto The Fog, The Howling, and Scanners. Even movies like The Burning, From Beyond, Lifeforce, and Pumpkinhead--these probably aren't going to Scream/Shout. Another reason I say this, MGM just released Killer Klowns from Outer Space themselves--so I just can't see them handing over high profile stuff. (Of course, I could be completely fucking wrong, but whatever. We'll see in the coming weeks. :))

    With all that in mind, this is my short wishlist:

    Arena (1989)
    The Barbarians (1987)
    Cellar Dweller
    Dark Angel aka I Come in Peace
    Hell Squad (1986)
    Highway to Hell (1991)
    Hospital Massacre
    New Year's Evil
    Prison (1988)
    Steel and Lace
    Too Scared to Scream
    The Town that Dreaded Sundown
    The Video Dead

    I'm not even sure if MGM would let Scream Factory release legit versions of their MOD DVD-R titles--but I know I'd rather spend $20 on a New Year's Evil blu-ray versus $20 for a fucking DVD-R.

    Highway to Hell and Hospital Massacre would be sweet.

    And for some strange reason my sixth sense tells me The Video Dead will be on its way via Shout!. I can feel it.

    MGM also owns Blood and Lace (1971)!

    Blood and Lace is absolutely wonderful - unjustly neglected! I own a bootleg, fairly good quality no less, but I'd pay big money for a blu-ray!

    If they're dipping into the DVD-Rs (The Island was originally released as one), then I'd vote for Modern Girls or Spellbinder over New Year's Evil.

    Yes! Yes!! YES!!!

    YES!!!

    Terrorvision is one of my all-time faves! I discovered this on late-night local TV in the early '90s. I tried to tape it, but missed the beginning. Still, I watched it many times. Years later, I got a used VHS. I've recently seen it in widescreen on TCM and Netflix. Thank you, Shout! This had better be on Blu!!! Primo picture for the Pleasure Dome!

    "Remember kids, you do your thing and we do ours."

    "I'm just taking care of business here!"

    "Pills? What color?"

    "War stories and monster movies are educational. They're survival-oriented. They always neutralize the enemy in the end."

    "A soldier. What a manly profession. Raping and pillaging, creating life and taking it away, like the gods of the ancient Greeks."


    This is a day-one preorder for me, along with whatever exclusive swag Shout! offers on their website. Rape me and pillage me, Shout! Take my money!! Just give me my Terrorvision on Blu-ray!!!

    Release date anyone? "C'mon c'mon c'mon!"

    Anyone who is a fan of TerrorVision should pick up the excellent book Destroy All Movies. It has a nice little spread on the film, including interviews with Mary Woronov and Jon Gries.

    I'm so stoked for THE NEST and PRISON it's ridiculous. I don't understand the love for TERRORVISION at all, but whatevs, we all have our faves!

    I almost bought the AWE import of PRISON from Diabolik DVD literally last week -- glad I second guessed it!

    One down from my wishlist. :banana:

    Also, I gotta say--the Deadly Blessing artwork is kind of shitty. Not a fan of Ernest Borgnine's gigantic Amish head...:eek1:

    Not as excited about these most recent Scream Factory announcements as I was the 2012 lineup, but I'll still pick them all up eventually to support a great company. Shout! has been a favorite of mine ever since they released Freaks & Geeks on DVD 8 years ago.

    Shout! is great, and in case anybody here is unaware, Shout! is basically the original Rhino Records before it was bought out and became a subsidiary of Time Warner. That's why they're so awesome.

    Really stoked to hear about Prison getting released. I actually thought this would be one of those films to never get a US release.
