    One title will be revealed before the end of April, and I'm guessing that it will be Satan's Slave. It was moved from April because, I believe, the scan was taking longer than expected.

    It would be disappointing if Satan's Slave was used as a Surprise Title, since we all know it's coming.

    I love Mountaintop Motel Massacre, a fun movie that brings me back to my youth watching all sorts of crazy horror movies. I don't want the package but I assume I will be able to pick it up individually soon! (Hopefully they offer the original cover, the cover they show on the website is pretty weak. Hopefully it is just a slip and the blu will have the original or reversible cover.)

    Mountaintop Motel is a creepy as hell movie with detailed sets. Excited to see this in Vinegar Syndrome quality! But they're giving no details or screenshots for this non-secret release. Games!! Maybe after they reveal the 2nd non-secret title.
    Added: MMM is sure to include the original artwork on the flipside.

    I love Mountaintop Motel Massacre, so it's great news that VS got a hold of it.

    I have the 88 Films Blu-ray already, but that one has a weird "echo" effect with the audio track that I could never really fully remove with my receiver settings.

    No dice.

    From the VS newsletter:
    Also, be rest assured that the cringe-worthy US photo poster isn't going to be gracing either side of the sleeve... instead Earl Kessler has utilized two gorgeous paintings for the art, along with a newly designed slipcover!

    It seems very likely that Satan's Slave will be the title that gets announced at the end of the month, and I'm thinking Horror High might be the "charming regional gore classic". I have no idea what the other film might be, but they did mention on Facebook that even hinting at the genre "might give it away".

    They're so tricky. I guess that's a good thing. I suspect you'll be able to purchase mom & pop video store original art separately. At least, I hope. The modern paintings would have to be gold key comics worthy for me to like it. They know their customers prefer original art. And they've stated that the 1/2 way to black Friday sale would be the virgin offering of original style artwork slipcovers-only for titles that didn't have a slip cover or cover art many disliked (really hoping for Christmas Evil, did Earl Kessler do that artwork?).

    I believe the first is international VHS art and the second is the original theatrical art.

    I assumed Satan's Slave would be the title being revealed this month, but upon reading the newsletter I'm not so sure. As it was already on their slate, there's really no surprise surrounding it. If SS were a May title, I think it would have been revealed in place of MMM, and the latter would then be one of the surprises, as it wasn't previously on the schedule.

    My take on 'regional' means here in the US, which excludes Slaughter High.

    We'll find out soon enough...

    Vestron already released Slaughter High on blu-ray.

    Horror High, not Slaughter High.

    I’m actually in favor of this - that US photo poster sucks. Makes the movie appear cheap and lame.

    Personally I usually prefer different art to the original one sheet poster. I like seeing new images and often the one sheet art isn't all that great to begin with.

    I always assumed it was because of that poster. I still haven't seen the film but have tried to download it a few times with no luck.

    You may be disappointed with the MMM release then, going by some VS comments at bluray.com forum, it's not going to be brand new, original commissioned paintings, but rather an arrangement using the two early, original paintings used by independent distribution for posters. I'm very happy with that decision. But I must say, regardless of hideousness and inaccuracy, the "New World" photo poster is history & nostalgia to some of us 80's & 90's video store horror fans.

    Thanks for this. I had been looking for any DVD of a movie called "Behind the Shutters" for years. I once had the one sheet poster and it played with "When the Screaming Stops"
    in 1980 at my local drive-in. Glad to know this is the same film! Definitely going to purchase now.
