    Haha will Slumber Party Massacre hit blu-ray? Because that would be awesome.

    Agreed. I haven't seen them in so long and HD would be a great way to revisit them.

    One of my all-time favorite shows! I have the first 6 seasons and was about to give up hope. Kind of odd & unexpected that Shout Factory is releasing these, but awesome nonetheless! Can't wait! :D

    Anybody know if THE NEST is part of the Roger Corman library that Shout! now owns? I'd love to get that flick on DVD or BLU with the 5-Star Shout! Factory treatment.

    I've got the old dvd of The Nest and it says "Roger Corman Classics" on the cover and New Concorde on the side. I think that means Shout Factory owns the distro rights now. I would buy it again on bluray the day it is released. I love this movie, brings back fond memories of my youth when the video rental place would get classics like this one every week.

    I really hope they give Slumber Party Massacre the blu-ray treatment. I would imagine that these are more popular titles than Galaxy Of Terror and Forbidden World.

    If they do release it only on DVD, I won't be buying it for a while. I already got screwed over when they released The Stepfather on blu-ray a few months after.

    "Has a year passed since San Diego Comic-Con 2009? Unbelievable.

    The coverage begins here then, with Shout! Factory the first out of the gate with some genre news for those attending.

    The distributor (on the main show floor at booth #3749) has pulled together quite a line-up of genre names for a panel discussion and various special signings.

    Roger Corman, Julie Corman, Joe Dante, Allan Holzman (Galaxy of Terror, Forbidden World), Sid Haig (Galaxy of Terror), Mary Woronov (Death Race 2000, Rock’n’Roll High School) among others are on the schedule.

    The Shout! Factory will present Roger Corman: B-Movie King on Friday, July 23 at 5:30 PM (Room 25ABC). Attendees will have the opportunity to sneak peek at the upcoming lineup from Roger Corman's Cult Classics home entertainment series and to participate in the Q&A with panelists during this session. The panel is moderated by documentary filmmaker Alex Stapleton, director of the upcoming film King of the B's: The Independent Life of Roger Corman.

    More details and Comic-Con exclusives to come, so keep tabs on ShoutFactory.com."

    Unfortunately SPM may not get the blu-ray treatment. I assumed it was very popular as well but apparently its not. I'm a little bummed, but at least they nailed the cover art and we'll most likely get an anamorphic transfer.


    Cliff Mac had this to say over at AVManiacs:

    I agree with Cliff Mac, it's best to use money wisely and I don;t think we should take advatage, we're already getting Humanoids From The Deep on DVD and Blu. When the time comes for SPM to go the Blu, the time comes.

    I read that quote and it sounds like the time will be never. :cry:

    I have too admit I feel a bit slighted. I've been getting so excited for these Corman releases because I've a big SPM fan. Every month fans of the other films would receive great news that their favorites were getting blu-ray releases, but then the door gets slammed shut on SPM. I understand why they need to proceeed with caution and I'll still buy all of these releases, but it is disappointing.

    A BLU of the SPM flicks would be nice, but I bet Shout!’s transfer will be spectacular even in standard def. So, I’m not really fretting over it. I just can’t wait to have these in my possession.

    If the Blu-ray sales of the big Corman titles aren't selling well I just hope Shout Factory don't get cold feet and change their minds about the Humanoids Blu-ray. It seems like it's still earlier enough for them to do that. Now I'm scared.

    Non-Shout! related, but Gamera related, Retromedia recently released their SE of Destroy All Planets 2010 (Gamera Vs. Outer Space Monster Viras) with a new transfer and commentary.:

    http://www.dvdaf.com/search.html?re...10*str2_pub_retromedia*str3_has_gamera*rgn_us

    From what I know, it's only available on Amazon. Anyway, it gave me an idea on the dubbed versions of the Gamera films; if Shout! Factory can't provide the dubbed versions of the Gamera films with the Japanese versions, then maybe Retromedia can release the dubbed versions on DVD on thier own.

    As long as we get Piranha and Humanoids on Blu I'll be a happy bunny.

    I sent them an e-mail expressing interest in a Slumber Party Massacre blu-ray.

    Anyone else who is interested, you can contact them here or via their twitter account.
