    Fangoria scored some big scoops on what's coming up from Synapse films, in two articles:

    And the rest of their slate:

    Not sure if I'm going to pick up the single disk versions of Schoolgirl Report because I'm wondering if there's going to be an eventual boxset. Not sure how long I can hold out once the 4th entry of the series is released.

    I cannot wait for Basket Case 2!!!!!!!! And I'll also be picking up Thou Shalt Not Kill... Except as well. And we'll see about that Running Time DVD and whats on it to replace the original Anchor Bay disc I own.

    Don announced he was working on BLACK ROSES on his DEADPIT interview a couple of months ago. I know this because I creamed my jeans upon his mentioning it.

    Thou Shalt Not Kill... Except, I think my current DVD will hold me over for eternity :) Crap movie, but that's what makes the commentary so fun. A remastered Stryker's War (which is actually better than Thou...) may be tempting. I already have a copy of Stryker's War in Crap-O-Vision.

    Not only that, but the brand new Document of the Dead with a bunch of new extras is a long time coming as well. It was supposed to be out over a year ago:(

    I eagerly await the DVD of Black Roses!!!

    I do own the old DVD of Thou Shalt Not Kill , but I'm sure I'll rebuy it. I'm sure with Synapse that the video/audio quality will be greatly improved.

    I eagerly await EVERYTHING. Synapse constantly proves time and again that they are one of the best producers of DVDs period. Don May knows what fans want and always delivers.

    Do they own any rights to release any 80s slashers?

    I guess this is as good of place as any to post some updates from Don May:
    :(

    Malformed Men, Snake Woman and the Poison Seductress series is what it's all about for me so it's a shame that others aren't picking up on them. I'd like to reiterate that HD remasterings and bountiful extras are a privilege, not a right.

    Reading that makes me worried about Mondo Macabro all over again. We've had good news with Panik House / Casa Negra so I'm hoping they're good too.

    Personally, I can't wait for THE KINDRED. I love that crazy , corny little monster flick. I seem to remember some time ago that Synapse was going to release THE INCREDIBLE MELTING MAN, but I guess that isn't going to happen. Anybody out there know anything about this ?

    The producer to MELTING MAN apparently sold the rights to MGM in perpetuity, only to turn around and double-sell them to Synapse. Don May discovered the deception and got his money back.

    Hopefully MGM will give us an INCREDIBLE MELTING MAN release in the Midnite Movies line.

    I bought the R2, Incredible Melting Man is a title I'd never upgrade, that's for damn sure. And the R2 version pretty much stinks. It's funny in a Troma way, be enough is enough for me.

    I see. Is the picture bad? I have the Orion VHS from the mid 90's which is okay.

    Well, it's not AHHHHHHH terrible, but it wouldn't win any awards. I also believe it's 4:3, not sure of OAR of the film though.

    Maybe if Don May Jr. stopped playing Xbox360 for 10 minutes and updated his blog more we'd know!
     
  20. the synapse dudes are awesome, i met them at chiller theatre last year. they even talked about a possible HI DEF release of THE IMAGE some time in the future, once one of the formats catches on more.
