I was happy to find out that the four Michael J. Fox films will be released also here in Finland in october.
TSoMS will be with the original cover art.

Books are cheap, and original artwork is used for blu-ray covers : Life is good in Finland ! [Big Grin]

But seriously.. here in Holland, prices are still rising, our biggest independent film distributor
(whose focus lies mainly on releasing art-house movies theatrically) filed for bankruptcy last week,
and even the big studios hardly release any catalogue-titles on dvd or blu-ray anymore ! [Frown]

I seriously doubt we'll get a Secret Of My Success blu-ray here.

Well, it´s going downhill here too release wise but thankfully the prices are still low.

Future Film have turned their back on catalogue titles, Same goes with Atlantic Film and it seems that VLMedia now releases only old finnish stuff.

We have to thank Universal and Studio Canal because they have released some good catalogue films on blu-ray this year.
All moviebuffs are ordering import stuff so i kind of understand what´s going on but it´s still sad.

That's a cool sleeve. The front-cover almost makes it look like an action / adventure movie.

Speaking of covers.. How about that Executioner part 2 poster ? That looks pretty impressive, right ?
Well, since this one has been directed by James Bryan (who also did Don't Go In The Woods.. Alone),
it's probably another micro-budget actioner, nowhere near as cool as the awesome poster may suggest.
They sure knew how to sell it though ! [Big Grin]

They sure knew, the cover art was very important part of the film.
Nowadays you have 1-3 heads (or 17 like in Expendables [Big Grin] ) and that´s it! 80s rule supreme when it comes to poster art.

Scorpion Releasing brings Spellbinder (1988) and Bobbie Jo And The Outlaw (1976) to blu-ray.

 -

Bobbie Jo And The Outlaw was initially planned for a dvd release in MGM's Midnite Movies Collection,
but never materialized. Eventually it did get a made-on-demand DVD-R release in 2011, but some reports
claim these discs to be defective. Scorpion Releasing now presents it complete with commentary and interviews !

Spellbinder I have on an Australian region 4 DVD,I'll look at upgrading to the blu when it's released and the price is right,a fun film!

 -


Pity by the sounds of it the editor wasn't much cop johnny,I'll still probably give it a go when I get chance,johnny have you heard of an 80s throwback slasher called - lost after dark which has just been released by anchorbay in the us,I've heard some pretty good things about it.

Wouldn't mind giving that a try also!

Haven't heard of that one before. Looks like a fun, little, retro-style slasher flick. [Smile]

I have to admit i'm not really up-to-date when it comes to more recent movies. I think i only bought five this year,
which are : Lars Von Trier's Nymphomaniac (the very very long version), Dead Snow 2, The Editor, Inherent Vice,
and It Follows. I've read some very positive reviews for that last one, but i haven't seen it yet.
I hope i haven't set my expectations too high. Has anyone seen it, by any chance ?

It Follows is dreadful. Feels very aimed at teens. Flabbergasted by the hype.

More news from the fine folks at Scream Factory :

www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=17745

The House Where Evil Dwells had a fairly soft looking transfer on the MGM region 1 dvd released over a decade ago.
Scream Factory provides a new transfer, plus it's being paired up with Ghost Warrior (aka Swordkill)
for some extra samurai-orientated, 80's madness.. Pretty cool i'd say ! [Smile]

Swordkill is not to bad johnny,I have the old UK entertainment in video vhs sat on my shelf,the house where evil dwells with the giant crabs is pretty bonkers and a bit of a strange one but watchable,make a good twin pack and I'll probably look into picking up this release.

Also coming out I see is a bo dereck double pack of bolero and ghosts can't do it also in January -

I own Bolero and Ghosts Can´t Do It. Watched Bolero while the site was down and it was a big disappointment. Even Derek´s Tarzan, the Ape Man (1981) included more skin [Big Grin]
I need the check out Ghosts Can´t Do It one of these days.

Yeah, right before he walks out of the institute where they un-froze him.
The scene takes place about 30 minutes into the movie.

Yeah, thanks. It´s funny that some things just stick in mind.
WASP was in Finland once again last week. It feels like they are here every other month or so [Smile]
