    So as most of you know Synapse are releasing Prom Night and Curtains from the Norstar library that Echo Bridge now has the rights to and while browsing the Echo Bridge website I found something interesting. Apparently Norstar also produced the rare 80's slasher Backwoods aka Geek and Echo Bridge now has the rights to it - they've even designed a swanky new cover for it. However, there doesn't seem to be a release planned and they haven't released it yet so this leads me to wonder; is another distributor eyeing it for a DVD - or dare I even say it - blu-ray release?

    One can dream right? Below you'll find Echo Bridge's artwork for it.

    I have the old DVD from Trinity, which is good enough for me. Truthfully, the movie isn't all that good.

    I remember seeing a bargain bin DVD of this at FYE a few years back and passing. Have always regretted it.

    I would buy a spruced up Synapse blu-ray (not getting my hopes up), but I'd settle for a cheap Echo Bridge DVD as well.

    Every time I've tried to order this, they send me that damn Gary Oldman movie.

    I give up. YouTube it is.
