Scorpion Releasing ( US )
« on: 06 Aug 2009 - 18:47 »

Scorpion Releasing is a new DVD label out of Seattle Washington.  Their first releases are up with street dates ( CHEERLEADERS WILD WEEKEND & SILENT SCREAM ), and they are linked with Code Red in some fashion.

They are also the ones working on a certain Vanessa Howard / Freddie Francis gem and there should be an announcement in Sept. or so.

Looking forward to that one, did they get back to you about the trailers you've got?

I am sending a dvd-r of the trailer to them along with some images that might be of use.  The trailer is really good, just a 30 second spot but it's all hard sell of Vanessa with some high profile quotes ( She's luscious - NY Post / She's Sensual / She's some girl! - NY Magazine & Girly takes up where Baby Jane leaves off - Rona Barrett ) text over Vanessa chopping wood, sucking a thumb ect...it's a great spot.  I have read Cinerama did not support GIRLY but this TV spot indicates they did try.

Does anyone know when/if they are releasing [amazondvd]The Farmer[/amazondvd]?

I watched [amazondvd]The Last Grenade[/amazondvd] tonight and there was a trailer on there for it, looks good.

From the facebook page:

On 2/11, we at Scorpion are releasing FORCE FIVE. To make a long story short, I convinced Code Red that this title has a much broader appeal and deserves a wider release than just being available at his store. So watch it hit the shelves on 2/11!

The DVD will feature a brand new 16x9 widescreen master in HD, and an original trailer.

From Scorpion releasing:

"Due to the dismal BluRay sales (most selling 600 or less) of the titles that had been out before numerous times on DVD, and the fact that the DVDs of some of these BluRay titles sold much better (DEATHSHIP, TOMBOY to name a few) , Any titles falling into this category, I will only press 1,000 (1,200 on the more popular ones) BluRays and sell them as limited editions.
Now, since I don’t have an outlet to sell direct yet, these new Limited Edition Blu-Rays will be sold by Code Red on their website, as he seems to have found a much more successful mode for selling catalog BluRays than I have selling them through retail outfits. (now I can see why Twilight Time went with this business approach)
The first batch of BluRays that will be sold on Code Red's web site are:
GIRLY
MORTUARY
DON’T ANSWER THE PHONE
And the long awaited release of GRIZZLY (since DAY OF THE ANIMALS sold less than TOWER OF EVIL or THE UNSEEN, and both of those sold barely 1,000 units, which is why I think 1,000 - 1200 is the right number to press these titles, like GRIZZLY.)
Also, all future BluRay titles will now be put on hold (like SORORITY HOUSE MASSACRE and HAUNTING OF MORELLA), until each are carefully determined to see if they have a shot at making a profit through retail outlets (only two BluRays have for me so far) or will be a limited edition that will be available on my new web site that I am building. The future status of all BluRays I release will be evaluated and any decisions will be posted here.
Thank you for understanding."

I spotted that too. Not sure if I'll upgrade though.

I think the direct to consumer route is definitely a better way to go for these niche labels.

The DVD was pretty good, I'm sure a Blu-ray would look great.
