    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?

      I already have a British release of THE DEVIL WITHIN HER under the title THE MONSTER.It came in a box set with the anthology THE UNCANNY and Hammer's HANDS OF THE RIPPER.Those were all good copies,I'll have to see some comparrisons before I double dip.

      True, but to be fair the disc has been OOP for quite some time now and it is a different studio releasing it.

      I understand that, what irks me is that I would rather spend my money on the movies I don't have instead of having to upgrade the ones I do.

      Sorry buddy, but you're going to have to upgrade! Scorpion's FINAL EXAM is a great improvement both for audio and video:

      crap....
      I dread hearing how house on sorority row, and incubus are major improvtments as well...... ( just thinking a worst case scenario):nervous:

      oh well double triple and quadruple dips are nothing new to me anymore:rolleyes:

      WOW! :eek1: That's a pretty massive jump in visuals, for DVD that is.

      I'm glad I pre-ordered it early when it was cheap!

      I've been very impressed with all of Scorpion's DVD releases in the past. They truly seem to care about getting a professional job done on their releases.

      I agree. I'd love to see them enter the blu-ray game. Then I wouldn't hesitate about upgrading Final Exam and House On Sorority Row.

      You make a good point. Could we be seeing these titles on Blu in the future? Scorpion seems to have their act together a little bit better than Code Red (no offense - I love Code Red). I wonder if I should just hold off. With my luck these Scorpion titles will go OOP and there will be no Blu's :mad:

      Yeah I hear ya on that one, would all these titles in blu. I'm still on the fence about having to upgrade films I already own on dvd.

      OMG! The jump up in quality is amazing. :eek: Paired with more features and the original poster art...DAMN! I may actually double dip on this. But I have to get Humongous first!

      Man, that new Final Exam transfer is off the hook! :D

      I'm going to double dip on Final Exam because I love the movie and want the best possible version of it but I don't consider these versions "upgrades" because they're still DVD only. DVD is a low resolution format, just like VHS was inferior to DVD. Any true upgrade will be when these hit Blu-ray. I don't see that happening any time soon so there's another reason for me to get these.
