    I had Slaughter High pre-ordered, but ultimately canceled it. I just don't like the movie enough to pay over $20 for it. I'm hoping Lionsgate pulls out some more cult classics from the vault that I'm actually interested in. So far I've only picked up Chopping Mall, Waxwork 1 & 2, Blood Diner, Chud II, Return of the Living Dead 3, Lair of the White Worm, and the Warlock collection.

    It will be interesting too see what happens with class of 1999, this has been released in Germany but with an SD upscale as a HD print was not available, apart from chopping mall, none of the vestron releases have been struck from new scans, it's all been old prints, I'm interested, but will need reviews before dropping the cash!

    I'm interested in both releases, but will wait for a price dip. I just can't pay full price for these titles.

    It's terrible...
    Feel nothing like the original, and lacks all the fun FX and action, that the first one had.
    Just a typical shitty mid 90:s DTV sequel.

    Still curse the day, when I bought the Laserdisc...

    Found a nice HD transfer of Class of 1999 on youtube. Sadly suffering a bit "thanks" to the youtube compression.
    Wonder what disc it came from?

    Michael Felsher of Red Shirt Pictures posted this over on his Facebook regarding Class of 1999:

    "Hey everyone, pass this around if you can...I want to clarify that the upcoming CLASS OF 1999 Blu-ray from Vestron is indeed the UNCUT version that was previously available on DVD and on VHS back in the day. This is a new transfer taken from the inter-negative and it matches the uncut version. The R rating on the packaging does not mean that this is a censored edition in any way. So you can all rest easy, those few extra seconds of cyborg-related mayhem are present in the upcoming disc."

    I agree Class Of 1999 should have been doubled with the sequel. It's more fun than Waxwork II and some of the sequels Vestron has deemed worthy of inclusion. Hell, it's better than some of their standalone releases.

    The sequel, although distributed on VHS by Vidmark (which Lionsgate might own since they acquired Trimark in 2000), was produced by CineTel Films and my guess is they still own the rights since they are still in the game of producing/distributing movies.
