    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.

    I bought the other two secret packages pre order they did for Black Friday.

    But to shell out for 4 films. Three that are secret. I don't know, maybe it's just me. But that's getting a little carried away now imho. Just stick to the Black Friday once a year gimmick.

    I was expecting Corruption Of Chris Miller to be more of a proto-slasher. It's mostly a 2 hour melodrama about a woman and her step-daughter squabbling over the same man. However, there is an amazing 5-minute sequence where a hooded sickle-wielding killer goes on a rampage, which is easily the highlight of the movie. I was under the impression that would play a more prominent role, considering the killer made the cover.

    Your comment reminds me of the one sheet. Horror? Slasher? Female Drama? ;):

    Apparently Jeff Gittel & Joe Rubin were this week's guests on the Shock Waves podcast. I haven't listened, yet, but reportedly they announced The Passing and The Vineyard as future releases.

    The Passing was mentioned late last year, but I had completely forgotten about it. Sounds really bizarre.

    They also mention that the got Splatter University and The Suckling in a package deal with another film that hasn't been announced. I'm thinking that third film is probably Flesh-Eating Mothers.

    just saw The Darkroom

    the back of the cover mentions that it's an American take on the giallo but those words should be taken with a large pinch of salt, even though you can find a couple of elements here that might be inspired by that genre

    it's OK entertainment but I expected a little more bang for your buck in terms of sleaze and style

    that said, the film looked like it was shot yesterday, a very clear transfer

    Did you notice any audio issues on your copy?

    No, but I might have missed those as I did watch it with a group of people and there were times we were talking with each other (also the reason why I will watch this one again on my own some time in the future).
