    I don't have a good feeling about this.
    I thought BU were supposed to be remastering these titles?(or at least the Argento ones).Like the Bird release.
    So now we'll never be able to watch Deep Red without the freeze frame??:fire:
    Or will they come with yet another rerelease after a while?That would stink.

    It's cool news for those who want Duckling though,since it recently went OOP.
    One hell of a great Giallo.

    If they are new transfers, I'd definitely be game. They scored on the Daughters of Darkness reissue with that spiffy new transfer, so perhaps they will.

    I'd pick up Autopsy anyways, since I never got around to buying it the first time.

    I'll probably order Shock because I didn't pick that up the first time around, but if all of these discs are the same as before, I'll pass on the rest.

    I have to say, if they included the theatrical cut of Deep Red as a bonus, I would gladly buy it. Not that I don't love the uncut version, but I haven't seen the theatrical and I would prefer not to resort to one of those shitty public domain discs in order to see it.

    This will probably be one of those " ZOMBIE " deal's where Blue Underground releases it a week or so in advance of S Show...

    Other than the recent Franco,BU is not doing me any justice.For that matter,No one really is.I am glad to see Code Red put out some smaller known titles but BU/ Synapse/ and Mondo Macabro to name a few have all but slowed down as far as output.And Shreik show???????Hell,Half the time I never even know what they have released.I will find something of interest 5 months after the fact.

    Maybe it is time for these companies to start digging deep.There are still plenty of things yet released.

    Well, I've long heard rumors of BU's demise as a major label, this is just another example. The Code Red labels and such simply sucked all the life out of BU. I seriously doubt they're coming back - in fact, given the things they're releasing lately (double packs and such) they look more like they're wrapping up than looking to push things forward.

    Fact is, apparently, BU didn't make any money off the genre titles. Low sales, and no doubt some piracy, meant they didn't make any of the hard stuff. Then people started the spin-off labels. When rejoicing about new labels it's important to find out where they spring from. It might sound good, bu it can turn out to be bad.

    Definitely will be picking up COTLD, DTAD, and Autopsy. I'll get Deep Red, Inferno, and Shock if they're better transfers.

    It's a shame BU seems On the ropes.The hope for a Giallo Collection II seems pretty bleak now( i know tiltles were released..and well).Some of their choices over the last year or so for release were big chances,imo at least.Did we need multiple versions of The Final Countdown?..I think not.Hopefully they regain their glory days..

    Actually, from what I heard, The Final Countdown was the only film they put out that made money, it basically saved the company. We like to think, as horror fans, that our beloved genre is popular. Sadly, it's not really. Criterion have released lame more mainstream films too, probably for the same reason. Money. Still, Final Countdown was a film I didn't bother to buy.
