It's a well made movie, but it's not very good.
I enjoy After Midnight and was wondering when Scream would get around to releasing it. It's no Creepshow but I find "The Old Dark House" segment to be memorable, and the wraparound story is terrific fun.
I thought the start of that Old Dark House segment was a bit of a rip on Rocky Horror (car troubles in front of an old mansion that leads the couple to go seek help). The reveal of that segment also reminded me of a Tales From the Crypt episode in season 1 where a similar thing happens (I also think TFtC did it better).
The other two segments were snoozers for me, especially the second one. The wraparound was pretty entertaining. Not enough to warrant a buy for me though.
I'll admit that I have a hopeless and incurable addiction to 80's horror cheese, so my judgment can definitely be impaired at times.
It's not a rip off of RHPS. It's how these tales were done since broken carriages and spooky castles existed. Car trouble/weather is literally the plot device for The Old Dark House. It's how they're suppose to start. If a writer had a couple on a drive say, "Our car is working so well, and it's so lovely out, let's stop at this old abandon mansion and ring the bell," you'd be thrown out of Hollywood.
Well that's true lol. I honestly haven't seen a lot of films like that so Rocky Horror immediately came to mind.

I'm more interested in what this means for the prospects of a couple of highly requested titles that should be part of the same film catalog, one of which is probably the single-most bootlegged film on the Blu-Ray format.
Fright Night Part II and Nightflyers
Wasn't there some internet chatter last year about how the rights issues for the former had possibly been worked out?
Has anyone actually seen this one? I recall it being on VHS but it seemed to disappear after that (not unlike another MIA title that I wish I had seen at the time: OUT OF BOUNDS).
I saw Dudes back in the VHS rental days & recall liking it. I don't think this had a DVD release. Daniel Roebuck from River's Edge (which came out shortly before this) plays one of the lead characters. Lee Ving (lead singer of the punk band Fear) plays a villain. I plan to revisit & purchase this movie.
Holy shit. I remember seeing ads for this in the back of my comics when I was a kid and wondering what it was. Since it never got a DVD release (in the US, I think), I never saw it. Very curious.
A smorgasbord of September titles!

I watched Dudes for the first time on VHS two years ago and personally didn't like the movie at all... I found it painfully unfunny, dated, and just could not get interested in the story or the characters.

We are pleased to announce that we have a new IFC Midnight film planned for release on Blu-ray & DVD this September!
A DARK SONG – Grieving Sophia (Catherine Walker) despairs over the tragic loss of her murdered son. Desperate to somehow make contact with the boy she has lost, Sophia believes her prayers are answered when she crosses paths with the reclusive Joseph (Steve Oram, Sightseers). An expert in the occult, Joseph reluctantly agrees to aid Sophia through a series of d...ark and forbidden rituals in order to bring her child back to the world of the living. Pushed to their physical and psychological breaking points, Sophia and Joseph make a disturbing descent into the most depraved corners of black magic.
