    I rented this from Netflix under the title Pranks and once I was told it was a cut print I sent it back.

    I want to see this and look forward to the new DVD.

    I'm just itching to buy something...almost ANYTHING from Synapse again. I'm not into their Asian horror flicks except for "Evil Dead Trap" which I just loved. I have been meaning to buy "Thriller - A Cruel Picture" but I haven't gotten to it yet.
    It's fun buying their DVDs and discovering films like "Brain Damage" which I have watched about 100 times (and never tire of it) and gotten friends into it as well.

    Saw it at a hardtop in California in 1983. It was the same version that Media released on VHS.

    We've been laying low for a while because we're moving to a new distributor, so we've been working on some stuff in the mean time.

    I've pretty much finished:

    GRAPHIC SEXUAL HORROR
    THE NIKKATSU ROMAN PORNO TRAILER COLLECTION
    DEBAUCHERY (NIKKATSU ROMAN PORNO)

    And we're putting together THE DORM THAT DRIPPED BLOOD and working on some cool supplements for it, as well as getting some LA interviews for a few other things we've yet to announce. I just watched the new anamorphic transfers for three AMAZING titles that we'll be announcing with FANGORIA.COM... maybe... today... if I can get them to post up the info! ;) We hope to have these out this year.

    We hope to be with our new distributor soon, so we can get back to doing more releases.

    I love the Dorm That Dripped Blood and I can't believe its going to have a special edition.Hopefully you'll be able to track down as many actors as possible who were in it for interviews.

    not to get off topic again, but I read somewhere the rights holder (or someone that is needed to get the ball rolling) to Silent Madness is in jail for a long time, that's why there is a holdup on the DVD.

    Also, I have three copies of the "Silent Madness" Media VHS. For some reason, two of them are cut in the gore department and the other one is not. One has the full drill through the head scene and a couple seconds of more blood when the girl is stabbed at the video game. Otherwise the tapes look identical (packaging, etc).

    Ahhh so is that why I had the damndest time getting Patrick and Long Weekend into my store for Ozploitation Month? Alliance couldn't give me a good answer about that.
    Hope the new distributor works out and like everyone else I'm stoked for The Dorm That Dripped Blood release, hope it's out soon!

    I'll be keeping an eye on the Fango site, I'm excited to find out what these are!

    Thanks for the updates!

    Still nothing on the Fango website.

    I've been dying to know what the three titles are!

    There was an LP (on Citadel?) and a CD, but was there a novelization?

    I've been trying to halt my VHS shopping until the new titles are announced. But I've been eyeing a copy of Psycho Cop on e-bay, and I finally caved and ordered it. So the new titles had better not include Psycho Cop! ;)

    I'm trying to guess what the new titles could be. Since Dorm That Dripped Blood is on the way, I can only guess that maybe it will be other movies from the same director? The Kindred or Servants Of Twilight? Hopefully we will find out this weekend!

    Code Red spilled the beans in the other thread. They are 3 Hammer films and since Don mentioned the anamorphic part, I am guessing Dracula Prince Of Darkness, Satanic Rites, and Legend Of The 7...

    Maybe Quatermass and the Pit to replace one of the above titles.

    Oh my god...if it's The Power '84, or Torment '86...that'd be awesome! :eek:

    I'm wondering about The Kindred '87 too, since that one was mentioned a while back.

    I tried to find a good quote from Don May about the unnamed three but in general they're moving to a new distributor so they're waiting to announce.

    But since this is a thread about Dorm I'll post what he did say on that:
    http://www.avmaniacs.com/forums/showpost.php?p=809835&postcount=1012

    I'm having a hard time even imagining what the "big three" might be. The Hammer titles they announce were huge, but Don promises these are bigger than that.

    Yeah, it makes me wonder...

    I'd laugh if the three titles were actually complete crap, haha.

    But I'm holding onto the hopes that it might be The Prey, Without Warning, Humongous, Fatal Games, Island of Blood, The Slayer, Blood Tracks, or something along these lines. Wishful thinking...

    Oh man, Without Warning and Humongous would probably make me swallow my tongue with excitement. The Prey I'm not holding out for seeing as how Anchor Bay couldn't find a decent print a few years back.
