    I was surprised to see Sexy Beast blu ray on the list - I really liked that movie- but not sure if enough to pay more then 20 or 25 for it. I take it all their blu rays are at least 30.00 right? Hmmmmmmmm

    Technically the only huge thing wrong with NOTLD is the color-timing (little audio drops are hardly noticable, and I like the end without the camera sounds better), so I'm gonna wait for reviews on Body Double now.
    Let's hope this DP was in the fucking building when "supervising" these changes. NOTLD is proof of how wrong it can go when they phone it in.

    Let's hope that Twilight Time actually watches the DVD or HD version if it's out there now and compares it to the version they will sell this time around. Right now, it doesn't seem like they watched the new version yet. Body Double is a great movie. A trip into the acting world and its underground elements. Very fun and crazy towards the end. I hope it won't be a crazy fast sellout.

    It's hard to anticipated what will quickly sellout, isn't it? Fright Night and Christine came as no surprise, but since when did NOTLD have such a following? Don't get me wrong, I like the film, but didn't anticipate it going out of print in a matter of days.

    Waiting for review could mean "SOLD OUT"!

    I'm going to pass on this. I think that $35.00 is too much, and I would prefer to use my $35.00 for the Blu-Ray of Lifeforce, or some other film from Scream Factory, AKA Shout! Factory any day.

    Did you not read the original quote?

    So I'd think it should NOT be another NOTLD90 fiasco, but properly timed to the DPs intent.

    Bahhhhh and just when I thought I could resist every Twilight Time release after Fright Night, they go and do this.

    Count me in....

    I'm game for this release, despite not being a fan of Twilight Times 'style'. I luckily got a copy of Christine, which is my first TT title. Originally I was on the fence with that, but since it did include all the extra features, it was worth upgrading in that regard. I can't justify spending 'that' much on a bare bones release, no matter how limited.

    I enjoy Body Double, and since it's likely to include the extras(which I haven't seen yet, as I've only seen the first bare bones dvd release). I'd love to pick it up. However, I hate the 'rush' to acquire certain TT titles since the greedy scalpers ruin it for fans of the films by buying up all the copies to sell at excess prices, and I refuse to cave in to them.

    Didn't they claim NOTLD was also "personally supervised", but it turned out to be phoned in? Just having a hard time trusting after that debacle.

    Yeah it could sell out, but seeing how Fury is still around and neither are cult horror, I feel waiting for reviews will work out fine. If worst comes to worst and I wait, it sells out, and reviews say it's the best BD ever; I'll still have an extra Christine for trade bait.;)

    If Body Double is going to be released in august (which is quite near) shouldn't it be listed as pre-order in Amazon already?

    Twillight Time blu-ray pre-order aren't taken on Amazon. They are sold exclusively via Screen Archives Entertainment. I think the pre-order are available usually 3 weeks before the release day, you can check the TT Facebook page usually they post the exact date and hour the pre-order will start to be taken.

    Well Happy upcoming Bday Chomp! I am really tempted to pre-order Sexy Beast - that was a great movie
