    After a brief 5 title stint with Shriek Show, it seemed as if Code Red, and all their classic cult titles, were little more than a dream. Thankfully though, Code Red has been resurrected by BCI/Navarre, complete with a hit list of titles never before announced. Their first release will be SOLE SURVIVOR this April, BOARDINGHOUSE and THE DEAD PIT this May, and re-releases of their Shriek Show titles will be soon to follow.

    Here's their list of great titles to expect in the new year:

    • Sole Survivor
    • Boardinghouse
    • The Dead Pit
    • The Unseen
    • Can I Do it Till I Need Glasses
    • Beyond the Door
    • Butcher Baker Nightmare Maker
    • The Visitor
    • The Mutilator
    • The Nesting
    • Nightmare
    • Terror Circus
    • Running Hot
    • Caged Men
    • Spasms

    Ssssuper news, especially for the news of the Oliver Reed, Canadian snakesploitation classic, SPASMS, finally slithering its way to the digital format. There will be some yet unannounced drive-in double features too, so keep checking here for the latest updates!

    Wow, impressive list! Plus it is actually pretty easy to find BCI product on store shelves (unlike Media Blasters).

    Awesome! I'm interested in most of the titles.

    I just hope that BCI isn't going back to their old crappy Brentwood packaging methods. The new Horror from South of the Border release had lame packaging and cover errors.

    Hell yeah! I've been waiting soooo patiently for Beyond The Door. Would love to see The Dead Pit again. Think I've only ever seen a butchered version of Nightmare, so that'll be on my list too.

    For one thing it comes in a cheap double-wide keepcase. Two discs arrived loose. Basically it's not too different from the old Brentwood budget 4-packs in terms of packaging, except that there are four discs (all flippers) instead of two.

    The back cover states there are only 3 discs and 6 movies...there are actually 4 discs and 7 films, or 8 films if you count one film having both English and Spanish versions. Plus it doesn't even list Demon Rat on the back cover's overview of the films contained in the set. Who the hell was proofreading this? :rolleyes:

    A Code Red release of that would be nice but in the meantime it's in 2 different Brentwood T&A type package deals.

    I want to see The Visitor for the cast alone. The only movie on the list I've seen is Night Warning, and I can really only remember Bo Svenson's terrific performance.

    Code Red posted this back in February on their MySpace blog:

    SWEET SIXTEEN - unfortunately, finding the original cut turned out to be a curse. When we sent the original cut along with the previous theatrical print we mastered, the lab technician screwed up and removed footage from the theatrical cut and put it in the original cut, causing splices and damage. And now the commentary won't match up because scenes are moved around! I keep trying to explain to that technician to put it back the way it was, but all I get is a "huh" response. So this title is in limbo at the moment, until the original elements are fixed. The extras are all done however, with commentary track by Aleisa Shirley, jim Sotos and Scott Spiegel.

    It all sounds a little suspect to me. How come Code Red can't simply go to the technician personally and fix the problem. Oh well. The line-up they've got coming out looks fabulous and I can't wait! I've really enjoyed their output so far. It speaks a lot for a company when they'll go out of their way to make truly special editions for movies like Don't Go in the Woods ... Alone and The Forest. No one would mistake these for classics and most companies wouldn't even bother remastering them, let alone producing hours of supplemental material.
