    I should get it today it looks like.

    He'd better offer refunds, or I'm just going to try a chargeback on my card, the first time I'd had to do something like this. Although he sounds clueless about everything, so actually receiving a refund from this joker should be a lot of fun.

    He just flat out lied about it coming from a 35mm source, etc., so I consider it fraud.

    It's bad enough that it's a BD-R & CD-R, and he overcharged for shipping, but the transfer looks worse than the Laserdisc-to-DVD I have!!

    Did you use Paypal, or did you pay directly from the card?

    I used a card, but it was placed with my Paypal debit card, so I can go directly through them if I need to.

    When I ordered, I don't even recall seeing a direct Paypal payment option.

    There wasn't a Paypal payment option, otherwise I probably would have bought a copy myself.

    After this fiasco, I wonder what the possibility is that we'll ever see a respectable release of Rocktober Blood?...quite the shame. I may have to retire the avatar.

    I'm doubtful that refunds will be given.

    Me neither, and I'm not messing sending anything back to this guy either. Are you doing a chargeback?

    I received mine today finally, and the postage was marked $2.83 on the package. Okay, I'll say the bubble mailer and printing cost him $1 tops in bulk... probably more realistically it was like .30 cents. So $10 for shipping? This is just a ripoff all around.

    There isn't even a simple menu on the disc. The audio is at a low 128kbps. It's really like they tried to make this release as shitty as possible.

    Also, what happened with these being "numbered collector editions" so big? I don't see any fucking number on it anywhere.

    The outside of the case (not the actual cover) was autographed "Keep Rockin Billy" and I guess it's initials or his autograph below that. I didn't pay extra for that, but whatever.

    Oh yeah, a review:

    This is beyond terrible. What a complete rip off. I feel bad for the fans who ordered this crap release. I'm sure there won't be any refunds either. This kind of thing really pisses me off.

    Plus, it's bad for the legitimate releases. J.R. Bookwalter (as an example) did a fantastic Blu-ray/DVD/CD set himself of The Dead Next Door, kept everybody informed of exactly what was happening and what to expect, and it really was a super nice "homegrown" release that was worth every penny. That is how it should be done, and he didn't charge an arm and a leg for what we got.

    You know what? I'm moving on. My guess is no one hears from him after this. I just signed a new contract with my work tonight, life is good.

    The tragedy here is that he has really hurt other legit homegrown releases. There are guys out there struggling to put quality releases in front of us for a niche genre.

    What a mess. This whole thing is truly sad.

    If Lionsgate has a print of the movie, I have to assume that they own the Blu-ray rights to it. So... I wonder if they know about Billy's illegal release?

    According to what he posted previously, he got the print he used from Lionsgate.

    Is there anyone on here still waiting for their "Rocktober Blood" (1984) merchandise? Is this "so-called" sequel even happening? They STILL owe me a t-shirt & mini-poster. I purchased the $150.00 tier along w/ an additional DVD (unsigned) @ $30.00. A total of $190.00 (including s/h). I have e-mailed them 3-5 times in the last month & a half w/ little to no response. Ben Sebastian (other son) said: "He'll look into it". NEVER heard back from him. They seem like bunco artists to me. Oh well, I guess I helped pay for Tracey's (Billy) NEW BBQ restaurant. Hopefully, the Greyhounds got some of the proceeds. If anybody out there has more information, please let me know. Hopefully, some day, a more reliable & trustworthy company will release it!


    Thanks,

    That sucks, but... you are not getting that much less by receiving nothing than I did receiving the disc.

    * Looks like he deleted every trace of the Blu Ray from the Rocktober Blood Facebook page. Unbelievable.

    I would do a chargeback as soon as possible, I wouldn't let this scam artist get a dime of my money. The whole thing is a fucking joke from the beginning:mad:. Give the rights to someone who actually would release a good package of this movie like the guys at www.filmcentrix.com did with Blue Sunshine, Now that's how you release a fucking movie.
