Did they announce PRINCE OF DARKNESS yet? It's one I'm really hoping they'll do. One of the few films that actually still creeps me out a bit ever since I saw it at the cinema.

Rumors about such films as Phantasm II, They Live, Prince Of Darkness, Wes
Craven’s Deadly Blessing, The Funhouse, and even the recently released on
Blu-ray, Halloween II were popping up.
Now comes news, that ALL of these films, save for Prince Of Darkness, and a
few other films that hadn’t even been mentioned are coming to Blu-ray and
Dvd!

 
Doesn't seem PRINCE OF DARKNESS is on the release roster according to here:

This week's release from Scream Factory is:
 
FROM BEYOND (1986) - from the Director of Re-Animator- will be coming out as a Collector's Edition Bluray & DVD combo next year! There will be new extras along with the older ones which were on the prior 2007 DVD release.

I wish they would do Prince of Darkness and/or The Burning
Title: Re: Scream Factory (US)
Post by: the blob on 12 Oct 2012 - 20:10
From Beyond is a good film but Second Sight are also releasing it in the UK so I'll see which is better.

They seem to be mining the MGM catalogue so that's good news and I'd certainly be up for The Burning too. I've never been a huge slasher fan but that's up there and one I watch fairly regularly. Seeing as Shout released all the New World stuff it'd be nice for them to get hold of some of the AIP Cormans but I think they've gone to TGG Direct who are doing budget releases with them.

I'll take a BD of Death Line/Raw Meat.

EXCLUSIVE SPECIAL "Halloween Weekend" ANNOUNCEMENT**

Cannon films X-RAY (1981 - aka: HOSPITAL MASSACRE with Barbi Benton), SCHIZOID (1980 - starring Klaus Kinski) and THE GODSEND (1980 - starring Donald Pleasence's daughter, Angela) are on tap for a release late in 2013! All three have never been out on DVD before.

As mentioned yesterday, these films will not show up on our schedule until later in 2013 so we cannot confirm they will be on Blu-ray as we have not seen the masters yet. We say this only to manage expectations. More details on these fun flicks will be presented next year.

I wonder if MGM still have the rights over there to SCANNERS. I'd have thought it's something they could have got hold of unless MGM value Cronenberg too highly.

I think Second Sight are planning to release all three on BD over here.

THE BURNING is my favourite slasher - probably because it was the first one I ever saw (I was probably about 12) - also watched the 'STRONG UNCUT' vhs of ZOMBIE FLESH EATERS the same day. Life was forever changed.

Have they changed the Prison artwork to the one you posted Martin? Or is it just a mock up considering it hasn't got the combo pack info etc at the top.

Just wondered as I saw this one before and it does look more in uniform with the others.

I watched this from a cable broadcast last year.  It's pretty decent and I enjoyed the movie, but there's some pretty jarring shifts in tone between the grisly murders and the at times comic antics of the investigators.  It led me to research the interesting facts surrounding the actual case.  That said, I won't be rushing out to buy this on blu-ray or DVD, but then my tastes run mostly to European fare these days.
Title: Re: Scream Factory (US)
Post by: babybreese on 03 Feb 2013 - 14:21
Not a big fan of this.  A couple good scenes for sure but the direction is mostly poor ( especialy the scenes with the director in them ! ).  Charles B. Pierce is a hack who never made a completely sucessful film ( some were popular but not good per se )   Here he gives himself a supporting role and he is simply awful.  As this is based on a true story, I'd guess the good parts come from the real events themselves.  The ending fails to deliver taboot. 
Of course Ben Johnson is solid and he escapes with dignity.  Not so sure about Dawn Welles and Andrew Prine though.  I saw this when released and even as a teen I was let down, but the film does have it's fans.
I think it's long unavailable status helped it's reputaton and helps explain the hype around this release.  THE EVICTORS is another Pierce film that is included as a bonus on this release, and it's the better film.

It's 4x3 and could possibly be a VHS upscale. Easily the worst Blu-Ray I have seen. Some of the German Blu-Rays are hit and miss. I got stung by the Nighthawks Blu-Ray. My HD recording off of ITV4 looks miles better.

I personally think some of Arrow's covers are fine. With the reversible sleeves and multiple covers, i usually find there's something for everyone. I liked the Zombie Flesh four sided covers they did on the ltd edition slipbox. The original VHS cover with the hand coming out of the ground and having the "strong uncut version" was a nice touch i thought.
