It's OOP now, so probably from Ebay or the Amazon Marketplace.
OOP, or Never in Print?
Videos have been long oop, but June 1st is the release of the new disc.
Here's a few of my many favorite hidden gems:
House Of Death (1982)
The Zero Boys (1986)
Shallow Grave (1987)
Hide & Go Shriek (1988)
Mirror Mirror (1990)
There's Nothing Out There (1992)
The Dark Hours (2005)
Jack Ketchum's The Lost (2006)
I believe they are talking about Society.
Indeed, 'twas Society that he asked about. :eek2:
It was in print twice, once as it's own disc with it's very own cover art. Then as a "double feature" with Spontaneous Combustion. Both are available on amazon for a slight premium, but far cheaper than most OOP AB discs I can think of. I know this to be true as I have the solo disc version in front of me right now.
I just looked around about June 1st but saw nothing about a new disc, got a link? I'd upgrade this for better a/v quality and/or extras, the existing disc isn't a sock-knocker by any means.
He's talking about the June 1st release for Slithis, not Society.
Body Boy is getting everyone confused here.
Ahhh, well hopefully we'll all get surprised by a Society Blu-ray some time in the not-too-distant future. Whether the effects look awesome (I'm leaning this way) or fake as fuck (hope not) in HD, it will still be a must have.
Current disc is better than I remember though, I had to start skimming through it when the thread got me thinking and I noticed it wasn't in my dvdprofiler collection for some reason. I won't ask you for scans of this Kat, I gots it.
Hahaha, oh crap, I've destroyed the fabric of time in this thread. XD
Thanks, had no idea this was on its way.
Can I say despite the acrimony regarding Craven that this thread is awesome? I'm a pretty big horror geek, and I'm not aware some of these titles existed. Some of you guys really know your horror. I'm always happy to hear unheard of gems to add to my collection and there's plenty listed here.
As for me? Amsterdamned, Final Exam, Intruder, Bloody Birthday and Curtains are all fairly unknown by the general public and are pretty good. In fact, I just saw Curtains recently and can't believe this hasn't made it to dvd here in the states yet. Someone needs to pick up the rights to that film.
One I've always been curious about is something listed in the book version of Going to Pieces: The rise and fall of the slasher film, 1978-1986: Peeping Tom (1960). Anyone know if this ever made it to dvd? It sounds really interesting.
Criterion released it in 1999, but the disc is long OOP.
Time to build a time machine I see.
The Criterion DVD appears to still be in print, you can purchase it from Amazon, DeepDiscount, even the Criterion website.
However, it was reported that LionsGate bought the rights to the film, so the Criterion DVD could be going out of print at any time.
I don't know if these would count as gems but I liked `em:
The Ghouls (2003)
and even though they're getting some press these days I'd say that Cannibal Girls and Rituals are still really underrated and unknown/unseen by a lot of horror fans.
Has anyone seen A Polish Vampire in Burbank and Curse of the Queerwolf? They are cheesy low-budget horror comedies that are always good for a chuckle.
Oh yeah. Ash28M just reminded me of another: Girly (1970)
Also Blood Moon (aka Wolf Girl) (2001)
One more I haven't seen but heard good things about: Night School (1981). Been looking for it myself.
Agreed, this one is very good.
I'm sure if this is a gem or not, one my friends used the term "hidden gem" and the movie May in the same sentence. I've never seen it, is it good? I've heard may great things about it.
CURTAIN! I love that one! But it's a shame it isn't on DVD at all! It seriously should be though.
