    It's from Image. The transfer may be worse judging from their other re-releases.

    Yes... Better grab the double feature from Anchor Bay with Mountaintop Motel Massacre. You can still find it cheap and you´ll be better served.

    I've already got that double feature but I'll never pass an opportunity for me to proclaim my love of The Initiation. Totally rules.

    The Initiation is an underrated gem. Great flick!

    Mountaintop Motel Massacre, on the other hand, is a bit of a dud. But you've gotta love that poster and cover art!

    I disagree. I think BOTH The Initiation and Mountaintop Motel Massacre are great, fun slasher flicks, evenly matched for different reasons.

    Mountaintop Motel Massacre is a severely underrated gem. Creepy, stylish direction on a limited-budget, the eeriest music score ever laid to tape, and ATMOSPHERE to burn. In many cases people who underestimate MMM have preconceived misconceptions that it will be comedic, or a straight slasher. Creepiest film ever IMO.

    I'm still on the fence on this new release. I don't have the Initiation in my collection yet and I don't want to get the double feature AB DVD because I already have the single MMM release. Are there any reviews out for this new disc yet?


    I totally agree.

    May I retract this statement?

    I had remembered Mountaintop Motel Massacre being kind of slow and boring, but I revisited it via Vinegar Syndrome's recent blu-ray the other night and loved it. It's a bit of a slow-burn for sure, but it's also strange, creepy, and kind of wonderful.

    No because I agree with it :p I tried watching this one but it just wasn't my jam. I thought it was a slow and pretty boring dud.
