    Also it appears that despite house and house II saying 1.33:1 on the back they are both in fact 16x9 widescreen

    Yes. Hills Have Eyes 3 was also in a box set in both Germany and the UK. I don't know who owns the rights to that in the US.

    Are the transfers the same as the Anchor Bay releases?

    That's good to know, although I already have Anchor Bay's individual release of House from June 2002 (without House II: The Second Story) Love the cover art on that release.

    The transfer on Anchor Bay's DVD is outstanding. For a film from 1986 (25 years ago!) it looks so beautiful. Especially the outdoor scenes early on. The greens of the grass, trees, plants really pop. I wonder if Image plans on releasing House on Blu-ray? I would love to see it in high def.

    Not sure, don't have the anchor bay releases to compare unfortunately but these discs aren't too bad all things considered.

    I'm going to bite the bullet and order the new slugs DVD as well. For 8.99 I'll live if it's a shitty DVD haha. Plus that cover is just too cool to pass up

    I could swear THE PREY was released on VHS by HBO/Thorn Emi. This is one of the few slasher-in-the-woods flick I've never seen and would love to. Anchor Bay was supposed to put it out but couldn't find good elements. That's no excuse, really. I hope it makes it out someday.

    Yeah so would I among quite a few others on Image's list of new releases. But like the others I was hoping for like Creepshow 2 & The Stuff. HOuse & House2 look to stay as just dvds & if that's the case I'll be hanging on to my House/House2 special edition.

    Here's a review of the C.H.U.D. DVD Re-release by Image.

    The transfer is probably the same as the old Anchor Bay release, but the new disc doesn't carry over the audio commentary and stills gallery that were on that release.

    If you haven't picked up the older DVD, you might want to do it now...

    I received VAMP on Blu the other day via Amazon and the transfer looks pretty decent. Definitely not a simple upconversion - I'm actually pretty sure it's the same master from the Arrow disc but I have yet to check to see if it still blocks up on a few instances like the Arrow version does.

    Either way, if for whatever reason you haven't purchased the Arrow disc - shame, shame - and you don't care about special features, since the only one is a trailer, then the disc should work for anyone just fine.

    Received THE VINEYARD yesterday. I never acquired the original release. It's a decent film with a nice transfer. The only extra is a trailer, which I am assuming was all that was on the original disc. I hope that more odd-ball titles like this get a release through Image-Lakeshore.

    The plastic case is horrifically flimsy! I know it's a growing trend with environmentally-friendly cases, but c'mon, these cases take the cake.

    I know Anchor Bay did not release the entire post-Corman New World catalog (they released the majority, or, at least, the better-known titles) so which of the ones that weren't released would you guys like to see on Blu? Personally, I'd like to see hi-def versions of Breaking All the Rules (1985), In the Aftermath ('88?) and The Annihilators.

    Well, I´ve got some great news for some of you who are not happy with the re-releasing of Anchor Bay titles made by Image Entertainment.

    There´s a legit UK company called "Boulevard Entertainment" that made a deal with Anchor Bay to release some of their past titles in the UK. The great news is that these titles are a direct port of the US Anchor Bay discs, R0 NTSC, with all the extras.

    I came in contact with these titles in form of a cool boxset called "The B-Movie DVD Collection". You can get this boxset in a normal 12 DVD set in normal individual cases (in print) or in a digipack format (out-of-print). I bought the normal set and it is a beauty.

    [​IMG]

    From this set, the titles that are a direct port of the Anchor Bay US are:
    - Return of the Killer Tomatoes
    - Elvira: Mistress of the Dark
    - Return To Horror High
    - The Stuff
    - Hell Comes to Frogtown
    - Slugs

    You can get this titles individually but some are already out-of-print, and the whole boxset is cheaper (£12.99)

    Boxset: http://www.amazon.co.uk/B-Movie-Cam...ef=sr_1_1?s=dvd&ie=UTF8&qid=1316628881&sr=1-1
    Digipack: http://www.amazon.co.uk/B-Movie-Cam...ef=sr_1_2?s=dvd&ie=UTF8&qid=1316629619&sr=1-2

    Here are two videos of the boxset:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RBCyuAo1Fkc
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1so67hZQko0

    Besides the above titles, this company released these titles from a direct port of the Anchor Bay US discs...
    - Soul Man
    [​IMG]
    - Heathers
    [​IMG]
    - 18 Again!
    [​IMG]
    - Death Before Dishonor
    [​IMG]
    - Wanted: Dead Or Alive
    [​IMG]
    - Sister, Sister
    [​IMG]
    - Flowers In The Attic
    [​IMG]
    - Transylvania 6-5000
    [​IMG]
    - The Vineyard
    [​IMG]
    - Reform School Girls
    [​IMG]
    - Dead Heat
    [​IMG]

    I bought the majority of these titles from this company, Boulevard Entertainment, but if need some proof here is a video:

    That B-movie box set is amazing. Just placed my order and it came out to $22.72 USD which is a flat out steal as far as I'm concerned. Thanks for the heads up. Can't wait to get it.

    No need to thank me... I hope you´ll enjoy it as much as I... :D

    That´s $1,89 USD dollars per movie... not bad considering there´s some gems...
