    I liked Cathy'a Curse. Not saying it was good, but was oddly watchable for me.

    I highly recommend The Child. As mentioned earlier, it suffers from the usual deficiencies of regional, no-budget film making, but is still a creepy, effective horror film. I am patiently awaiting an upgrade from the SWV disc.

    Yeah...the copy claim of it being the "genre rediscovery of the year" or whatever might be a bit much, but I certainly wasn't disappointed by it.

    Cathy's Curse has never been available in any sort of watchable version on any format since the original theatrical release - I suppose this is why Severin is touting it as a big genre "rediscovery". The film is by no means a genre masterpiece and it's easy to see why some people consider it cheesy and bad but I still stand by my views of the film as a great, odd little slice of Canadian horror even if its derivative other other, better films. Compared to other Exorcist and Omen ripoffs, I thought CC was the better of the bunch but this isn't why I enjoy it. I just get swept up by the weirdness of it all.

    Does Dr Butcher MD come with a slipcover? I just got mine, it came with the barf bag but no slip.

    For some reason, I thought it had one like Burial Ground did. Just wondering if I was too late.

    No, it never came with a slip included. It has a reversible cover, but that's all.

    I attended the Mad Monster Party Arizona show this past weekend. Stopped by the Severin table, made a pretty big purchase, & got some information. They gave me a catalog which had a bunch of coming attractions. None of the titles included release dates.

    I knew about some of these, others I did not.

    And Now the Screaming Starts
    Anthropophagous
    Asylum (1972)
    The Beast Must Die
    Beyond the Darkness
    The Devil's Honey
    Dracula VS Frankenstein
    Eaten Alive
    Jack the Ripper (Jess Franco)
    Shining Sex (Jess Franco)
    Suffer Little Children (Intervision)
    Two Female Spies with Flowered Panties (Jess Franco)
    Young Warriors

    The Beast Must Die? Cool! The DVD looks pretty grimy so I hope they have better source material for an HD master. Eaten Alive is great too but I knew about that one :)

    Another company putting out Beyond the Darkness? I wouldn't have thought the film was that popular. Shining Sex is the most interesting title on the list (to me) as that is a rather lesser known Franco.

    Quite a slate overall. I'm also looking forward to Beast...I haven't seen it since catching it on TV as a kid. More Franco is always good. However, my main interest is with Suffer, Little Children. I remember reading about it in the Deep Red Horror Handbook, and have had a keen interest in seeing it ever since. An actual DVD release is something that I thought I would never see. The movie was created by, and as a promotional tool for, the staff and students of the Meg Shanks Drama School in Surrey, England, and it apparently turned out exactly as one might expect. Somehow, it even managed to score a VHS release. I can't see passing up this one whenever Intervision gets around to putting it out.

    Severin is about to have a clearance sale on some of their titles.

    Can anyone make any recommendations? I'd like to grab The Stunt Man, but I'm unfamiliar with the rest of the sale flicks. Thanks in advance.
