    It's going to be one of the exclusive Blu-rays sold through Code Red's webstore.

    Exactly. If I'm not mistaken the DVD is already out. An update would be appreciated.

    Yeah Grizzly is the Scorpion title I have been eagerly awaiting. It's a shame it seems to be lost in limbo, especially when the DVD got a wide release. Their Day of the Animals Blu is my favourite release from Scorpion!

    Unlikely. From what I understand, there's no source for a hidef transfer.

    Humongous was taken from a VHS Canada master, so it was kinda stretched out to make it look widescreen when it really wasn't, plus it had some interlacing issues too, so what we got is what we will have unless an unearthed print of the R rated version turns up someday..

    Cheers for the info. I won't be holding my breath for that. I guess we will just have to make do with the DVD.

    I am 100% certain that there have been 35mm prints of Humongous floating about theater circuits. The issue is the uncut version is only on tape master. A composite would be lovely. Some day.

    A shame considering it is in my top 20 slasher films of the 80s. :( So underappreciated.

    It's certainly a shame. I recently picked up The Carpenter, American Nightmare and Double Exposure. I hold no hope for these on blu ray either.
