    Haven't seen it yet. My package from Vinegar Syndrome is due to arrive today. Don't know if I will be watching it before Halloween?

    I haven't gotten to the new disc yet, I'm still working on Amityville, but going from memory, it isn't very gory. People mauled by bears, claw marks, etc. There might be a few jump scares, but I don't remember a big final chase scene either.

    The entire movie takes place in the woods, so expect something like Moonstalker, Body Count, etc. Only this one doesn't even having buildings, maybe a cabin or two? It's a pretty light-weight affair, but I think it's a lot of fun.

    I would say it's worth it just for the homoerotic bro-montage set to the catchy tune "Cool Dude".

    Never seen the Angel films. What do you guys think of them?
    The set looks pretty nice.

    Very 80's and sleazy fun. Not for everyone certainly, but they have a certain charm. There's not a whole lot of continuity between the 3 films to be honest, and they each have a different actress playing the lead role.

    There was a 4th film in 1994 (Angel 4: Undercover) which came around 5-6 years after the third film, which looks like won't be included probably due to rights issues. I believe it is with Lionsgate, as the first three films are with New World/Lakeshore.

    Recently watched them. They're ok but I wouldn't buy them.

    It sucks you cant buy just the Angel set without the other titles. That Amityville set looks really nice, does VS normally discount something that new during the black friday sale?

    Usually the newer releases have the smallest price drops, if at all. Black Friday "discounts" are mostly for the older titles and merch if I remember correctly. But I'm pretty sure you will be able to buy the Angel collection separately on that day, and going forward.

    You'll be able to order the Angel set separately later on. This is just the 2nd flash pre-order opportunity now.

    No clue if the Amityville set will be discounted this early, but I doubt it will be all that much off if it is.

    Very nice, I can finally retire my old Anchor Bay set of this:D There's not too many old AB discs left to upgrade anymore except for Midnight Hour which hopefully gets its due someday.

    We just watched Midnight Hour again. So awesome. I can't wait for this to get a blu release. Actually watched it when it aired in the 80s.

    This is the problem that I have with most box sets for franchise films, or really most box sets in general: The only Omen I would buy is the first one. The only Wishmaster I would buy is the first one. I haven’t seen any of the Angel movies in ages/decades but if I recall right the only one I liked was the first one. The last thing I want to do is to clutter my limited shelf space with unwanted movies with no rewatch value. And even if they are all packed together in a case barely larger than a standard release I’m still paying extra for movies I don’t want.

    I think that I watched it back in the 80’s, too, because when I rented the Anchor Bay release 20 years ago it all was strangely familiar. Clearly it didn’t make that much of an impression on me as a kid and I have no idea why. Maybe I was just used to seeing better (non-PG) horror movies by then.

    I have no idea if it's true or not, but I've heard music rights are preventing a re-release of The Midnight Hour.

    I would love an upgrade, because it's one of the best made-for-TV horror films ever made.

    That really wouldn't surprise me, as some pretty big songs are heard during the film and I can't recall if they even get listed in the film's end credits.

    I bought the Anchor Bay DVD way back when it was first released, and I doubt I'll be parting with it anytime soon.

    I was thinking the same thing. As per maybrick's comment, the reason I remember watching it on TV as a kid really well was because of the Smith's song in it, let alone it was used during the really cool scene in the wine cellar. I was into music from a young age as I was with horror, so combine a good soundtrack with a fun movie and I will remember it on my deathbed.

    But yeah, music licensing was not so forward thinking back then so here we are with these issues to no end.

    I could go without the Shari Belafonte music performance. Like, was that a demand of hers? Who OK'd that? Was she that big of star? Connections at ABC?
