    Been following this for, jeez, a few months now and it appears Shout goaded Hart into this lawsuit so it'll be interesting to see what comes of it. Shout has essentially challenged Hart's legal claims to the films and that even if she did hold the films the copyrights had not been properly renewed and are therefore in the public domain. That this tactic seems to have brought them to the negotiating table may even mean they're on to something. Worst case scenario with that is the MST3k episodes go out as public domain and the rest of the fallout is Susan Hart's problem.

    Reports are yesterday the judge accepted the motion to extend negotiations to March 13th but said she will not extended again. So it's possible we will have a resolution by mid March. If not, then full trial. BEWARE THE IDES OF MARCH! ;)

    So, I bit on the Shout sale and got
    In the Mouth of Madness
    The Resurrected
    Army of Darkness

    AoD was a "throw-in" to get free shipping, but I only own it on LD anyway, never got any of the 72 different releases it saw on DVD. (That said, I have two LD copies: The standard edition from Universal, and the Japanese release with the "Captain Supermarket" title and alternate ending).

    Disappointing but not surprising no deleted scenes for April Fool's Day. Still seems a little bit light on special features for a Collector's Edition. Not even a commentary track? It's a personal favorite so I was hoping for more.

    A rather popular series of army recruitment films, or so I've been told.

    Yeah this release is really weak on the amount of special features. Shame.

    A Susan Hart/Shout deal seems unlikely according to film historian Tom Weaver:
    https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/monsterkidclassichorrorforum/viewtopic.php?p=1523067#p1523067

    Now while there is a level of legal maneuvering which would mean she is simply trying to dissuade rumors to maintain her positioning in negotiations I suspect this to be the state of affairs; she's not savvy enough to know when she's beat and Shout could very well prove her films to be public domain. However I suspect they'll hold their punches and just stick to fair use. She'll lose, again, and no deal will be made. And any future deal becomes all the more unlikely. This is probably Shout's last shot at it.

    Fuck it. I pre-ordered Kronos. I never do that, but this is just a must-have.

    Agreed, Hamilton are great to deal with. I order a lot of discounted books from them sometimes as well. Sometimes they have remainder marks (a black ink line) on the spines, but otherwise are always brand new and mint.

    All of the Blu-rays and DVD's that I've gotten from them before are brand new just like you'd get anywhere else. No hole-punches, saw-marks, or drill-holes in my experience.

    Four new Shout/Scream Factory titles revealed, all coming in June:

    [​IMG]

    Michael McDowell, George Romero, Stephen King and Arthur Conan Doyle present a terrifying anthology of fear with 1990’s TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE: THE MOVIE—which is coming to Blu-ray this Summer! Details we have currently are as follows:

    • National street date for North America (Region A) is 6/30/2020

    • This is being presented as a Collector’s Edition release and will come guaranteed with a slipcover in its first three months of release.

    • The newly commissioned artwork you see pictured comes to us from artist Laz Marquez. This art will be front-facing and the reverse side of the wrap will feature the original theatrical artwork.

    • New extras are in progress and will be announced on a later date (May timing).

    Pre-order links coming soon on shoutfactory.com and other fine online retailers. If you order directly from us at Shout Factory.com, the first 500 orders will include an exclusive limited-edition 18” x 24” rolled poster of the exclusive new illustration.

    ----------------------------------------

    Swim for your life this Summer as ORCA comes hunting on Blu-ray for the first time in North America!

    Sleek, intelligent, beautiful ... and hell-bent on revenge. Producer Dino De Laurentiis (King Kong, Ragtime) and director Michael Anderson (Around The World In 80 Days, Logan's Run) join forces to present the rousing action-adventure tale of ORCA. It's the story of one powerful being against another: a strong, determined fisherman (Richard Harris, Unforgiven) versus an equally determined killer whale. When the giant whale's pregnant mate is maimed and killed by Harris, the whale seeks vengeance: smashing boats, attacking a seacoast village, and eventually luring his human adversaries to a final confrontation in the marine creature's own arctic turf. Charlotte Rampling, Will Sampson, and Bo Derek (in her feature film debut) also star in this seafaring epic brimming with nail-biting suspense and spectacular special effects.

    Street date: 6/30/2020. Extras are in progress and will be announced on a later date. There's a reverse cover with alternate theatrical art too! Pre-order links coming soon on shoutfactory.com and other fine online retailers.

    ----------------------------------------

    [​IMG]

    THIRTEEN GHOSTS – the gory 2001 remake of the William Castle original – is coming to Blu-ray this Summer in an all-new definitive Blu-ray release! Details we have currently are as follows:

    • National street date for North America (Region A) is 6/9/2020

    • This is being presented as a Collector’s Edition release and will come guaranteed with a slipcover in its first three months of release.

    • The newly commissioned artwork you see pictured comes to us from artist Joel Robinson. This art will be front-facing and the reverse side of the wrap will feature the original theatrical artwork.

    • New extras are in progress and will be announced on a later date (May timing).

    Pre-order links coming soon on shoutfactory.com and other fine online retailers. If you order directly from us at Shout Factory.com, the first 500 orders will include an exclusive limited-edition 18” x 24” rolled poster of the exclusive new illustration.

    “It’s Dark, Clever, Nasty as Hell.” said Fangoria of 2009’s THE HILLS RUN RED. Today we announce that the underrated slasher film favorite is coming soon to Blu-ray for the first time on June 16th!

    You heard the story. The one about the goriest, bloodiest splatter flick ever, the one made in the '80s but mysteriously lost. Flash forward to now: Young cinema buffs search for the secret location where the movie was shot, hoping to find the film. What they find is that the goriest, bloodiest splatter flick ever is more than a movie. It's real. And it's happening to them. THE HILLS RUD RED vaults into a whole new level of horror as the terrified interlopers confront a demented killer who covers his hacked-up face with a baby doll mask. Wait, Babyface is just a character from the movie, right? Wrong. He's alive. He's waiting. He's thrilled to meet fans who will die – slowly, gruesomely, shockingly – for his art.

    Extras are in progress and will be announced on a later date. Pre-order links coming soon on shoutfactory.com and other fine online retailers.
