    ^^ That happened to me last month with Corruption. It was "In Stock" the entire time but I had one item keeping it hostage until the order was cancelled. It worked in my favor as I reordered Corruption on Monday for $1 less and it already shipped.

    The Night of The Comet review makes the blu ray sound like an upconverted DVD. Now I am strongly debating if I should just stick to my old MGM DVD.

    It doesn't look upconverted - it looks terrific. I don't know what people are expecting - a 4K remaster? Frame by frame photochemical restoration? If you're a fan of this movie you're doing yourself a disservice by not buying it.

    I don't know about you but they could have done a much better job cleaning up the print.

    I watched Night of the Comet on MGMHD. It looked really good, but it is one that I'm sticking with the DVD for now. Although I see there are a lot of good extras on the Blu that make it worthwhile.

    Damn that's disappointing about Horror Show being R rated. I won't be purchasing it now.

    Luckily I could cancel my preorder. It's really bad that Shout didn't announce early on that the movie is only R-rated. I am sure they kept it a secret because they knew that many wouldn't have bought it if they had known before.:fuck:

    Yeah, they announced it a couple of months ago (I think); I immediately cancelled my order.

    Hmmm well maybe Scream Factory did the best they could then. I really love The Horror Show and would love to have it unrated. Maybe one of these days... :(

    I am surprised to hear that. I ordered the Blu at the very beginning and was always hoping to hear something about it. But I never read anything about it being cut here until a few days after its release. Where did they say that it will be only R-rated?

    I just watched Body Bags on Blu-ray and the first thing I noticed was the brick walling of the sound. Is this normal for this release, because I thought it was irritating.

    probably because of it's TV origins.
