Haven't seen this in ages, and i doubt it even had an official dvd release.

Pretty cool trailer though : www.youtube.com/watch?v=QC4SUde0Zb8

I've always quite enjoyed Larry Cohen's thriller Special Effects and have the region 1 MGM Dvd and will probably look at upgrading to the Blu when possible!

Eric Bogosian plays a right sleazebag in it!

I wonder if Cohen's previous movie Blind Alley aka Perfect Strangers will get a release from them soon as well?

Larry Cohen is always worth checking out. He has some of the best screenplay ideas around, though sometimes they are kind of rough in the execution. He's very underrated. Of all the stuff that he's done, I like Black Caesar, Hell Up in Harlem, It's Alive, God Told Me To (my favorite), Q, The Stuff, I the Jury, Perfect Strangers, Special Effects, It's Alive III, A Return to Salem's Lot, Best Seller (excellent mainstream Cohen film), Phone Booth, and Cellular. In such a long career, he did over a dozen solid screenplays--and I haven't even seen a lot of his TV stuff--not to mention he directed a bunch of those films too. Great, underrated talent.

Best Seller I really enjoy,Woods and Dennehy were great together,i enjoy The Stuff and It's Alive but never seen Q The Winged Serpent before.

Q, the Winged Serpent is excellent. Michael Moriarty's performance is fantastic.

And back in this thread, Call Me has never had a DVD release in North America. It's an interesting little film. Come on, a DVD release for it and Lady Beware!

Larry Cohen is a legend!

Of course he´s better known as a thriller man but he even left his mark on the early 80s horror comedy/spoof genre with Full Moon High.

I should watch more Cohen films, lots of stuff on the shelf.

Where did you find this out? I can't see it listed on Wiki for their upcoming releases, nor on their site.

I don't think Arrow's US-only releases are listed on their site, as i don't see Pray For Death and Rage Of Honor either.

However, they ARE listed on the site of their US distributor MVD Entertainment Group, which can be found here :

http://mvdb2b.com/?site_id=label&vendor=ARROWFILM

And here's the specific listing for C.H.U.D. : http://mvdb2b.com/s/CHUDBlurayDVD/AV074

Jeebus! Talk about lack of info. I find that a lot on movie distributor sites though - they seem to be the last to update their listings. Kino is the same.

I haven't seen either of these, but i love this sort of stuff (not surprisingly) !

It reminds me of trying to catch obscure softcore skin flicks on late night German RTL+ television in the late 80's.

The possibility of being caught by your parents while watching these movies made it all the more exciting.

Ah, those were the days.... [Big Grin]
