    I feel like I've read this rumor without seeing it in print as verified anywhere.

    Perhaps this dates me but I saw Eyes of Fire in the theater. I remember virtually nothing about it with the exception that I liked the poster. :D

    Rights reverted to Wingnut Films (Jackson) for Bad Taste, Dead Alive, and Meet the Feebles quite a few years ago, 2013 I believe - hence why the Lionsgate Blu-ray has been out of print since then, and he is/was supposed to be restoring them himself but nothing concrete has come of those restorations as far as progress, news, etc. since the rights reverted. Dead Alive turned 25 this August, so would have been a perfect time for a new restoration... but until Jackson actually says anything about them continue to hold your breath.

    Let's hope 'restoring' does not mean 'pointless tinkering'. I really just want his older films warts and all, but with as much clarity as the source material allows.

    Randy preacher and his flock are exiled from town and into the wilds of colonial America. In addition to less-than-friendly Native Americans, they eventually have to contend with malevolent spirits deep within the woods. There are some legitimately creepy moments and effective make-up, even if the FX are pretty DIY at times. The narrative doesn't totally go off the rails even when things get weird. I like it quite a bit.

    I'm excited for Dagon, but I just fucking hated Beyond Re-Animator. Having only seen it once, a re-watch might be in order, but I might have a tough time getting past the loathing to even get started.

    Yeah, I don't love, love it. It's more of being the Re-animator films all being on Blu.

    Has anyone ever preordered anything on Amazon weeks in advance using a credit or discount code as partial payment and had them end up charging your card full price when it came time to ship? I preordered Slaughter High last week using a $15 credit Amazon gave for me for an order that never arrived so the final price was something like $14. I hope they remember to charge me that when they ship next week.

    All of my experiences with their Customer Service have been positive, but I always do email (as opposed to phone or IM) so I have what they said in writing. I'm sure if they mess it up they'll fix it if you bring it up to them.

    Good luck!

    This sounds like something you can resolve in minutes through the chat feature. It's somewhat hard to find. Choose the "help" menu from the top of the page, then scroll all the way down and select "need more help?" Then click "contact us," fill the form, and choose chat. They should straighten it right out for you.

    I hope these get released by Vestron in the U.K., I'm trying to avoid region A if I can.
