    80s horror fans have already had a few nice surprises this year with announcements like SLEDGEHAMMER, but this one takes the cake. Scorpiron Releasing will be debuting the following favorites coming out in September: HUMONGOUS, AMERICAN NIGHTMARE, THE CARPENTER, THE DEVIL WITHIN HER, THE HUMAN EXPERIMENTS, THE MARK OF CAIN and NOTHING BUT THE NIGHT. As if that weren't good enough, they're also re-releasing the beloved and hard to find FINAL EXAM, THE INCUBUS and THE HOUSE ON SORORITY ROW. All nine DVDs will be on a new "Katrina's Nightmare Theatre" line featuring intros and extros by WWE star Katarina Leigh Walters. It's about time we had a new Elvira!

    I'm salivating too much at the thought of finally seeing the Canadian giallo sleeze-classic, AMERICAN NIGHTMARE cleaned up on DVD. I'll just go ahead and quote their official press release:

    Also, here's a sample of the cover art for each disc, staying very true to the original poster art:

    Excited?

      This should be even better, as the master used for the old DVD was only sourced from a tape master.

      Did Scorpion locate the original negative?

      I don't know for sure, other than what they posted, but they must have at least located a usable film element to strike an HD master with.

      I like that cover. I also have the DVD but will certainly upgrade to blu.

      Doubt it's from the negatives, but just a general 35mm theatrical print since the unrated bits will be sourced from the same tape master used to make the previous DVD. Still, will be an upgrade overall.

      It will be like what they did with my bloody valentine. but not as bad,,, but I wonder how good the new print will look.. . wow, rare, at the movies reviewing this. they always hated horror movies. not sure why they even bothered reviewing them. New artwork looks really awesome. way better than shouts arts on some.. It comes with slipcover, I would want that. I'am sure this will be a better upgrade then the OOP dvd.

      Can't wait! I remember watching that Sneak Previews episode, too, back then.

      I actually think My Bloody Valentine is one of the best "patch jobs" so to speak. It's better than the jumps in Silent Night Deadly Night that's for sure. At least the footage that was spliced back into MBV was from a film source and presented in HD.

      Patch jobs can be good, look at the work on from beyond, the results were amazing when you see what they had to work with.

      Totally forgot about From Beyond. Yeah I thought it was seamless for the most part.

      I'm totally excited about this release, and I appreciate how upfront Walt has been about the inserted material being in SD. I also the fact that both cuts will be on the disc. It will be good to finally be able to see what's going on - maybe we'll finally get a good look at the killer mutant? :)
