I wasn't sure how to title this thread but the general question I'm posing here is this: Are we in for less horror output from the Blu-ray labels going forward? Consider: Vinegar Syndrome is starting off 2018 with 2 prison-themed exploitation flicks. I didn't see hints for any other titles so this has to be their weakest lineup since the current month. VS typically offered at least one horror title with their month packages but I'm seeing a pattern of more exploitation/less horror, in addition to a general slowness in terms of output. November is very light, they're taking the entire month of December off and only 2 titles for January. Arrow hasn't had a decent horror lineup since September (I don't count THE THING since it's a reissue) and other than the upcoming Cat O'Nine Tails (another reissue and which isn't even really horror) they have NOTHING lined up. November is super lame, they have an arthouse 60's drama on tap for December and practically nothing for January. I realize these are traditionally slow months but this is ridiculous. On the other hand, Severin seems to be picking up the pace so maybe they'll end up being next year's hot horror label. They also seem to be the only label (other than VS) actually picking up new titles and not just reissuing older ones. They keep that up and they're going to quickly become my new favorite label. On tap for next year: Threads (1984) and The Changeling, in addition to a reissue of Lenzi's EATEN ALIVE. That's already a great lineup. Shout Factory seems to be shifting towards more classic horror, which is an area I tread very carefully in. It's not my among my preferred eras for genre films tbh. Other than Cyborg, I don't think they even have a January lineup (unless I missed the other announcements).
