    The BrinkVision Blu is not worthy of being called a "release".

    Is the BrinkVision release even sourced from a true HD-master? I was under the impression it was a rerelease of the independently published BD-R release of DLitB 2 that used an upconverted SD master.

    I really wouldn't doubt that, as the transfer on the Blu-ray doesn't look all that great.

    It certainly looks better than all previous DVD "public domain" release transfers, but is still a far cry from looking too impressive.

    So if he has the world rights is he gonna release it globally or just the usual shitty little release on a site open for 10 minutes every other Thursday!

    Whatever he releases these days generally goes on Ronin and Diabolikdvd as well ( though Ronin apparently did not want Caged Men).

    Necromancy is now up, for the time being, at the Big Cartel. While there is a PG card attached to the film, I believe it's been confirmed this is, in fact, the R-Rated cut, despite the disclaimer in the Big Cartel listing.

    Is that the title I saw people beg Bill to put back on sale? The one they bust his chops? Or am I thinking of a different title that started with the letter N.

    Is there any justification for that insane $33.95 price other than the artificial scarcity that Bill caused by pulling it? I really don't think it cost that much back when I bought it when it was new and there isn't a single other BD in the Big Cartel store that costs more than $27. He's gouging less than Diabolik did when they were selling that title a few weeks ago but the price still seems ridiculous especially considering that the release is, or is at least perceived by most to be, not what it should have been.

    That's the one, iirc.

    I paid $19.99 for Necromancy on Big Cartel last year when it was new. Despite the outrageous markup, other people probably will buy it. "Booberry" for example is still selling it for $49.95 on eBay at the moment. I have no desire to play these games when it comes to bogus "out of print" status and unreasonably bloated pricing.

    All right, I'll bite. I see all the talk of PG and being Rated R now. What makes it Rated R? Also watched the trailer, kinda looks ... not good. :confused: Do people want this because it's rare? Make a profit in the future? Or is it just a really good film?

    I'd have been pretty pissed had I not bought mine right away because I really liked the alternate The Witching version and really wanted to see this. I don't think this movie has much of a following but I'd recommend it. Wouldn't be surprised if a lot of the demand stemmed from it being "rare" or whatever though.
    Really not sure what would make this R based on what I'm recalling now but I remember thinking about how The Witching seemed a lot more R-rated that this. Here's some info about the movie: http://www.tcm.com/tcmdb/title/84654/Necromancy/notes.html

    It's available to stream on Amazon Prime. It has been in my watchlist for a while.

    Same here, bought it for $19.99 when it first went up.

    So much for Bill's repeated "Never gonna sell the rest of the copies", etc. Nice marketing ploy. o_O

    Mild nudity, IIRC.
