    Deep Evil - actually pretty good for a Lorenzo Lamas movie. Much better than, say, Raptor Island.

    Pumpkinhead, Ashes to Ashes - pretty good as well. Nothing great, but a pleasant enough waste of two hours.

    Tonight - Childs Play 2 and.,..hmmm...what would make a good double feature with that? Halloween 3 maybe.

    Sounds awesome.
    What ratio is Night Of The Creeps when show on the big screen? I keep trying to find this out but can't get an answer. Also is it matted or true widescreen?

    I spent yesterday with my Phantasm shpere, watched all 5 discs!

    The Ghost Galleon (1974) - cheesy fun.
    The Beast Must Die (1974) - a bit stiff.
    The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: Ultimate Edition (1974) - kick-ass DVD!

    Saw III got put off until today, so yesterday I finished up season 1 of Buffy. I've been avoiding it for a while, but to my surprise, I really liked it a lot. the writing was much better than i expected it to be (my anti-WB bias had me convinced it would be terrible) and the characters were all very enjoyable. I know i'm a little late with this, but I heart Willow.

    this aftertoon i'll be watching Saw III and later tonight it's Peeping Tom.

    I'm assuming that, if it's a film print, it would be in its true widescreen format.

    Finally saw this. Really enjoyed it for what it was--fast-action horror flick. Brainless, gorey, and ruthless. Who is the girl who played Honey Pie? She was quite attractive. I loved the character bios that popped up. Very funny. Worth a rental.

    Well, there's true (a better word would be actually) widescreen or matted where the fullscreen is just open matte with extra picture on the top and bottom. 90% of 1.85 ratio are matted, while most 2.35 are "true" widescreen (unless shot super-35, where it's also matted).
    Basicly, is there extra picture on the sides?

    It was 1.85:1 - looked GREAT. So much better than VHS and TV viewings - I wonder why a DVD release never happened? The audience was way into it - lots of applause especially for Mr. Atkins name on the screen and then the cameo by Dick Miller. I don't know if it was matted or widescreen...but it was rectangular and the Tri-Star logo wasn't cramped...so maybe it was always meant for 1.85? The alien subtitles at the beginning were perfectly placed and balanced near the bottom of the screen and it didn't look too tight to my eyes. It as definitely a print...only a few instances of reel change debris...but there were no skips or loss of dialogue. :)
    The rest of the film was balanced correctly. I never knew this film to look so COLORFUL, either - my friend told me it looked rather timeless (until more '80's fashions reared their heads;) )

    October 29th and on the big screen: THE TINGLER - wonderful print. DR. PHIBES RISES AGAIN - absolutely wondeful print also...it could have been it's original release way back then for all I know. Great sound, too (my DVD sounds too "hushed")

    Thanks.
    After watching the FS version dozens of times I still can't tell if this is open matte or hard-matted. There's no obvilous signs pointing to either (like extra headroom/dead space on top or bottom for open, or wrong-looking panning for hard) so it could go either way.
    Hopefully someday soon there will be a legit dvd, but we've been saying that for years now.:(
