    So no horror movies on the horizon?

    I think those are DVD-only.

    If it's any conciliation, Legend Of Billie Jean will be released on Blu-ray AND the commentary from the MOD disc will be included.

    It sounds like Mill Creek is getting worse in their quality control. Their Flatliners Blu-ray reissue also only has a Dolby Digital 2.0 lossy track. The older Sony Blu-ray issue had an uncompressed 5.1 track.

    It's true though. Fuck, even their super-cheap 2-packs that you can get at Wal-Mart for $3 now at least have lossless audio. The few releases I have from them are decent, but now it's all horror stories about not just 2.0 audio, but really poorly mixed and low-level 2.0 lossy shitfests.

    Remember, Echo Bridge has always meant cheap shitty shit. Mill Creek used to just mean cheap.:nervous: I know they are easy to mix up as I sometimes do myself, but one is clearly better than the other, or at least WAS clearly better.

    I received The Legend Of Billie Jean today. For $5, can't complain. Beats the hell out of the $20 DVD-R.

    I saw this in the Wal-Mart dump bin a few days ago. I've never seen it. Any good?

    If you're a fan of offbeat '80s teen movies, absolutely.

    Mill Creek are releasing two "Hammer Films" Double Feature Blu-rays, apparently licensed from Sony. Both have a $14.98 SRP and will be released on September 6th:

    The Two Faces of Dr. Jekyll & The Gorgon

    The Revenge of Frankenstein & The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb

    These Hammer double features are definite pre-orders for me (they don't appear to be available at Amazon yet), but I may cancel if they don't offer lossless audio. That's really inexcusable this far into the Blu-ray era. Fingers crossed.

    I think you'll be able to live without it...

    With Mill Creek, that is perplexing. They used to release Blu-rays with lossless audio, and then they went back in time to lossy audio for whatever reason.

    I'm definitely still buying them though, since I doubt we'll see any other Blu-rays of these for a long time. Plus, they're priced cheap... so I think we can live with it. ;)

    Their lossy releases have been mostly Touchstone titles, right? Coming from Sony gives a higher chance they'll be lossless.

    No, even their later Sony titles have had lossy audio again. The Harryhausen double feature was lossy, Sun, Sand & Sweat pack was lossy, The Legend of Billie Jean was lossy, etc..

    That's slightly disappointing but I will still pick it up. At least the price is right.
