    It kind of does, I mean not specifically for carrying nazisploitation but would you rather rent or buy from someone who carries whatever is available or someone who limits your selection based on their own personal view of what is acceptable and what is not?

    i was kidding. obviously anyone who considered themselves "a pillar of their community" would have a pretty weak selection of films for rent.

    Ah, I know that some people just don't like stuff like nazisploitation and figured you were being sarcastic. :]

    outside of cannibal films with real animal violence, i'd say that nazisploitation is probably the most offensive film genre i can imagine....that said, i own several of them :D

    I went to the site and it said the item couldn't ship to the United States but it still let me place an order.

    It said that to me as well, but in the order it shows shipped from Amazon so I am hoping.

    the warning "doesn't ship to US" is just text, it doesn't actually do anything. Amazon UK will still let you get it as normal.

    No suprise there. Shriek Show is trash now compared to some of these other companies. They use to be pretty good when they were the only option to get these films on the digital format.

    I think Shriek Show are pretty much dead now... they haven't released anything of note in ages. Media Blasters has seemingly just turned into a dedicated Japanese/Anime studio. I love their website's "About Us":

    :lol:

    It looks very grainy but the artificial noise is no longer there and the colors look much more natural and fresh now.

    The image on my screen wasn't quite as grainy and looked clearer. Just my opinion.

    Shriek Show hasn't released anything since 2011/12. Most likely they are defunct.

    Caps-A-Holic on Anthropophagus: http://www.caps-a-holic.com/hd_verg...disc1=6213&disc2=6217&hd_multiID=2534#auswahl

    Since my post was deleted because of the server mishap I'll note again this transfer ain't great... Yeah, it's an upgrade from the DVD but not leaps and bounds, and I doubt we'll ever get a great transfer out of this film as it was shot cheap and fuzzy and the struck prints (I used to own a Grim Reaper R-rated print) also never looked great to begin with. The Blu-ray is worth it for the 42nd Street Memories documentary which I actually found quite informative and entertaining - so if you're region free it's worth grabbing for that alone.

    That pretty much sums up all of The Italian Collection releases that I've seen from 88 Films so far (Anthropophagus, The Bloodstained Shadow, and A Blade in the Dark). :/

    Yeah, I had the same issues with the American Ninja set, which I just watched over the last couple of days. None of those films look all that much better than the DVDs either (as you can also see in Caps-A-Holic's comparisons). They also weren't nearly as good or as fun as I remembered anyway, hahaha.

    Their Zombie Holocaust Blu-ray is about the only one I've seen caps of that looks to be a worthy purchase in the Italian line so far, although I think it looks a tad too bright - as even though the Shriek Show Blu is really dark in comparison, some of the highlights are blown out on 88 Films transfer.
