    I've never seen these and am curious if I should get them or not.

    Shreik Show Announces Blu-ray Titles
    Posted August 29, 2008 08:57 AM by Josh Dreuth

    Shriek Show, a horror film arm of Media Blasters, has announced their first two Blu-ray titles, both of which are due to hit store shelves on November 25th. Technical specs and special features for the titles - 'Flesh for the Beast (Uncut)' and 'Shadow: Dead Riot (Uncut)' - are currently unannounced.

    We'll have more information as it becomes available.

    I find Shriek Show (Media Blasters) releasing blu-ray titles a very welcome addition, but these titles are not a good start. I'd gladly double-dip on House on the Edge of the Park or Burial Ground.

    Yeah, I would take just about anything in their catalog over either of those movies.

    I didn't mind Flesh but there is no way I'd go for Blu Ray on this title. Worth a a standard dvd rental.

    I like to support companies when they start to release blu-rays. But these two titles suck. Wonder what they'll charge?

    I'd be stoked if Grizzly was one of the first titles, but these are worthy of a jaw-breaking yawn.

    I couldn't think of a worse release slate, even FleshEater would be more tempting than these two.

    What's Tokyo Shock up to, that's the real question.

    I have to admit I haven't seen either of these, but I've seen the trailers and that was enough for me. Certainly not something I would pick up on either DVD or Blu-Ray.

    Don't give them ideas!! At least I actually made it all the way through Flesh for the Beast.

    Definitely!! Where's my Ichi the Killer and Female Prisoner Scorpion Blu-Ray's??

    I think if we do get Zombi 2 on BD, it will likely come from Blue Underground.

    Surprisingly, Shriek Show/Media Blasters did a solid job on the Devil Dog: Hound of Hell Blu-ray.

    It looks quite good in 1080p, presented in its original 1.33:1 ratio. It's a definite improvement over the old DVD transfer, and I didn't notice any DNR applied. Audio (both English & Italian) is lossless DTS HD Master 2.0 Mono. All of the old DVD bonus features are ported over. And the old DVD "easter egg" (Kim Richards interview outtakes) is also included – which plays automatically following the To the Devil, a Dog featurette.

    This is on blu ray!? I honestly had no idea it had that type of demand associated with it. i'm guessing nostalgia, because i recall it being incredibly dull.

    I couldn't agree more. This has to be the single most-puzzling Blu-ray release yet. Since when are totally underwhelming and fairly obscure TV movies from the 70s getting hi-def releases?
