    The Creeping Terror will be release August 12th in the Drive-In Classics Vol. 2, along with 7 other movies:

    Hearse, The (1980)
    Land of the Minotaur ( Devil's Men, The ) (1976)
    Creeping Terror, The (1964)
    Bloodlust! (1961)
    Terrified! (1963)
    They Saved Hitler's Brain (1963)
    Madmen of Mandoras, The (1963)
    Devil's Hand, The (1962)

    The hell of it is though Cliff Mac from BCI just confirmed that they didn't find the negatives after all! What the hell is that about? Talk about the boy who cried wolf, two years ago he goes blabbing on all these forums and now only gives a side comment that they didn't have it after all?

    I got Drive-in Classics vol 2 in the mail today (it came out this week). First off, unlike the first set, this set is a 4 disc set, dual side single layer dvds, with a movie per side. So right off the bat, the transfers have a much better bitrate than the previous set. As for the Creeping Terror, for being a 16MM print, it looks damn good! Some scenes come in great, while others look like the contrast may be a bit high. But all things considered, I think it looks fine.

    They've released a new teaser trailer for the documentary Creep.

    Looks damn good, better than a lot of the current indie docs being churned out. The back story also sounds more and more bizarre than I ever imagined.

    That looks terrific.I had read in the DVD liner notes and one of Medved's books about the making of the film but the trailer makes it look all the wilder.Need to check this out.

    Sweet, I hope they do an 8k scan for the UHD 4k release! :D I'm only half kidding. o_O

    Anyone remember if Ben Solovey, the guy behind the Manos restoration and upcoming Atomic Brain, found Creeping Terror elements? I did a couple of web searches and I don't think he did, but he found a lot of similarly distributed films. And he's worked before with Synapse.

    Hopefully this will get put together with Creep for its final release.
