    Besides Chainsaw Hookers, what other 88 Films releases are in stock and ready to ship? I've got some spending money thanks to Uncle Sam but with all the release day shifts it's hard to tell what's out now and what's been pushed back. 88's webstore is little help as they have a bunch of titles listed but no availability dates (at least none that I saw).

    Thanks, nothing I really need then. I have the first 2, which look great. Actually I also have Graduation Day, which I grabbed what seems like months ago. DGITW I wouldn't want for free, lol.

    In the same satirical spirit as HOLLYWOOD CHAINSAW HOOKERS or STUDENT BODIES, comes 1991's unfairly obscure splatter send-up BLOODSUCKING PHARAOHS IN PITTSBURGH.

    Originally entitled PICKING UP THE PIECES, and featuring special effects from the great Tom Savini (MANIAC/ DAY OF THE DEAD), this first class mix of gore and guffaws makes its worldwide BluRay debut from 88 Films. Starring Veronica Hart, the erstwhile adult movie legend, as a weapon-wielding femme-fatale who is dedicated to lopping off limbs and chalking up a high body count in the name of an ancient religious cult, BLOODSUCKING PHARAOHS IN PITTSBURGH is one of the most deranged darkly humoured hack 'em ups that you have (probably) never seen.

    Proving that the female of the species is far deadlier than the male, this latest addition to 88 Films' influential Slasher Classics Collection is a true gem of slice and dice delirium waiting to be rediscovered...

    I already have Code Red's blu-ray, but for the overseas folks who aren't able to get ahold of it, looks like 88Films will be releasing Nightmare In A Damaged Brain on blu-ray with a tentative September 21st date.

    Bloodsucking Pharaohs in Pittsburgh looks interesting, I think I will get this one, because it reminds me of my days when I would go through the VHS isles at the videostore as a kid pikcing up whatever looked fun and rent it. This is one I never even saw on the shelves back then. I hope they can get some extras with maybe the lead actress Veronica Hart and some others involved in it. preferably an interview, as commentaries bore me usually, unless they are very well done, but Calum Wadell is horrible at conducting commentaries, and they seem like they use him as does arrow. So I Hope they go for the interviews.

    Bloodsucking Pharaohs In Pittsburgh dropped in price to £8.99 on Amazon (or £7.49 minus VAT). Many of the other 88 Films releases are the same price, including Nightmare In A Damaged Brain, Splatter University, Live Like A Cop, Die Like A Man, etc.

    Any reviews for this or their Nail Gun Massacre blu-ray yet? Both of mine just entered the "Preparing For Shipping" stage. I'm assuming their Nail Gun Massacre blu-ray will easily top Code Red's, since 88 Films usually does dual-layered discs while Code Red crammed both versions of the film onto a single-layer blu-ray.

    ^^ My Bloodsucking Pharaohs In Pittsburgh pre-order shipped earlier today from Amazon UK, but the pre-order guarantee will refund the price drop there.

    I received it in the mail yesterday. It's definitely a dual-layered disc, and includes both aspect ratio versions of the film, but I haven't really had the chance to compare it to the Code Red disc yet. It includes all of the features from that release however, and gains two audio commentaries. Nice reversible VHS cover artwork also.

    If it runs 01:16:51, you probably have a faulty disc. The scene in question is a kill scene.

    It's a cutaway to an apartment building. Denise (Denise Texeira) calls Tony (George Seminara), hears a noise in her closet and gets knifed in the mouth.

    It occurs at the 00:59:57 mark on the following YouTube video.



    This scene should have started around 01:03:39 on the Blu-Ray after Julie Parker (Forbes Riley) strips the sheets on her bed. Instead it cuts from stripping the bedding to a phone call to Julie from Mark Hammond (Ric Randig).

    I just got mine in the mail. Haven't opened it yet, but is it safe to assume all shipped copies are from the first pressing? Or was the corrected pressing already mixed in?

    Pretty lame how they make you send the defective disc back. When situations like this arise getting the replacement should be as effortless as possible for the customer (ie. no having to mail anything...) and the defective disc should be a sort of collectors item that they get to keep.

    A defective blu-ray disc sounds like one of the lamest collector's items ever.

    I don't care about keeping the defective disc, my concern is the shipping cost for international customers.
