    I found it quite difficult to commit to the viewing experience, and I generally love 70's proto-slashers. The two leads have very little presence and are completely upstaged by a gratingly overplayed supporting cast. Charmless and suspense-free, it was a very long 70+ minutes for me.

    I watched the 88 Films release, and it's one of those that made me sympathetic to those with hearing impairments. Dialogue is quite muffled, and I would say that roughly half of it was lost on me. Subtitles would have been nice.

    Dying to check out my copy of Dr. Butcher BD but it's still backordered at Family Video and hasn't shipped yet. Sometimes I really hate trying to save a few bucks by ordering from backcountry mom & pop outfits.

    Family Video isn't a mom and pop outfit. They just suck at fulfilling orders in a timely manner.

    Yeah, I wouldn't really call them a mom and pop outfit. They have almost 800 stores in the US and Canada ... there's one here and it's basically like a Blockbuster store was.

    Wild Beasts (1984) is coming to Blu-ray from Severin Films! No release date or other info yet, other than an unreleased featurette with a walkthrough of Prosperi's home and grounds and artifacts he collected that they had original shot for a follow up to their Godfathers of Mondo feature for the Blue Underground Mondo Cane boxset will be included.

    The Dr. Butcher MD set is awesome. Also, my buddies printed the barfbags that came with it!

    Burial Ground And BTD will be mine.

    The PQ on Butcher MD looked great, so I'm thinking these will look just as good, if not better than the 88 films releases.

    Really? A third blu-ray version of Burial Ground. Let's get some unreleased titles. Same goes for Beyond the Darkness. 88 Films is already doing a brand new 2k transfer.

    Burial Ground from Severin isn't new news. Also, 88 Films' Beyond the Darkness will be Region B locked (just like their Burial Ground release). So for those who aren't region free, and want to upgrade or passed on the mediocre transfers of the Shreik Show Blu-rays, these will more than definitely be worth it. If their Dr. Butcher release is any comparability to the 88 Films, Severin's will trump the 88 Film releases.

    I was mainly trying to convey that it would be nice to get more unreleased titles.

    Same here. That movie is a wildly entertaining shit-show to me.

    I've already bought the blu-ray 3 times so I guess I'm covered.
