Question someone brought up there is an even bloodier/longer cut of Waxwork...What is it exactly?
Awesome news - I can't wait!
I don't think it has ever been released, I knew about it after reading fangoria at the time, the director mention that the unrated cut was the version that had been put together to achieve the required R rating but it never got it, it had to be cut down more to achieve the R and that other version became the longer version, if you check it out you can see some of the gore scenes are quite choppy, none more so than the vampire and popping Cork scene, that is particularly choppy.
Now we need to find out if uncut means the fully uncut version.
Thanks for the info
I definitely noticed the choppy editing during my recent watch.
This news is making me comb through vestrons library for gems.
Id love to see:
The beat 1988
Class of 1999
John Russo's Midnight. I love that movie, I sure hope to hear that's coming to blu too.
Yeah there's SO many titles I want to see as well.
Special edition blus of Class of 1999 and Midnight would make me so very happy.
I remember paying something like $79.99(!) for a Midnight tape sometime around 1994. Vidmark released the film on video but I think it's one of those titles Lionsgate doesn't actually control anymore. Arrow released the same crappy fullscreen print a few years ago so I'm hoping they revisit it with a proper HD transfer.
Awesome, glad I'm not the only one who shelled out big bucks for Midnight on vhs back in the day. Although I paid $59.99, I think. Still own the tape. And the Vestron Video store counter standee. And the original theatrical & video release posters. And a screen used sickle prop (used by Nancy to kill Cynthia in the toolshed) I acquired from Russo. I guess I'm kind of a super fan. In between it's faults there is a very strong atmosphere. Dilapitated shacks, shag carpets, dog cages, autumn golden rod fields, odd lighting, many chilling electronic audio cues. To me, it feels like it's accidently awesome. While the book is too crowded with characters and the New York stuff adds to the overcrowding. Just didn't move me at all.
The usa dvd of Midnight from Lionsgate actually plays anamorphic widescreen (listed as 1.33:1 on cover). Oddly, Arrow's UK dvd isn't pressed that way, full screen only, yet same exact transfer, adding really crappy ntsc/pal deformities. I do believe it's still in the hands of Lionsgate. Praying for a definitive high def release!
Very cool items Gunner.
Well I tried to watch this the other night to refresh my memory before committing to the bluray (especially at that $$ price). Turns out it didn't quite hold up as well as I remember it. I just couldn't get into it this time around and had to turn it off. One of my biggest problem's with it was that pretty much everyone sounds dubbed. I couldn't tell if it was intentional or not but I found it really distracting. Also the effects looked a lot cheaper than I remember.
Exactly what happened to me and my thoughts on the movie, time can be a bitch!
