    I watched Tammy & The T-Rex, which was a staple of the USA network throughout the 90s, as they used to air it constantly. I saw it a lot then, but haven't really seen it since.

    When they say "gore cut", they ain't kidding! There's gore and blood spraying everywhere throughout. The effects are pretty wild. I loved seeing this again, now in this gorgeously restored splatter-filled version.

    The extras are a lot of fun too. The guy who played the abusive testicle-grabbing ex-boyfriend now would be perfect casting for a live-action King Of The Hill movie. I forgot Shevonne Durkin from Ghost In The Machine, Leprechaun 2, and The Liars Club was in this. Where is she? Somebody get her for a disc interview!

    My VS package arrived today with the 12 titles I ordered. The Angel collection has a cool cover where half of it pulls off to access the three movies. Very cool design. The lenticular cover for Tammy and the T-Rex is more 3D than the few other lenticular items I've seen. I'm glad that I finally got a VS subscription this year. Just getting all the slipcovers is a treat in itself.

    I haven't even received a shipping notification yet--but I'm taking comfort in the fact that I'll have my discs long before the Severin Black Friday exclusives materialize. I thought I was going to die before Jack The Ripper arrived.

    Still don't care much, here. I got Criterion movies from the November flash sale, and Blue Underground from the Grindhouse sale. Not to mention VS titles from previous sales I haven't even watched yet. I'm good.

    I got my notification today, too. This plus Joe Bob Friday night? Maybe it really IS Christmas time.

    Out of the four releases coming this January. Flesh Eating Mother’s, Zombie Island Massacre, A Thousand and One Erotic Nights I & II .... I rather have the adult titles over the two horror ones.:cool: Have almost zero interest in them, they look awful.

    Somebody change my mind.

    I haven't seen Zombie Island Massacre since the horribly compressed Troma Triple B-Header DVD and don't remember much about it... (I will definitely be watching the new VS Blu to refresh my memory, plus it will look a million times better than that Troma transfer), but I can recommend Flesh Eating Mothers if you like horror comedies. I re-watched it a couple October's ago giving it a solid 3 outta 5 and had this to say: This 16mm '80s low-budget backyard flick is a bunch of fun that while delivering the laughs along with the gruesome gore also delivers some serious commentary on relationships, domestic abuse, and wrapping up your tool! While there are some sections that slog the film to a halt, there's plenty of flesh-eating.

    Haven't seen Zombie Island Massacre since it played in the theater. Can't remember anything about it but I do like the cheesy one sheet.

    Many moons ago zombie island massacre caused a political scandal with the appearance of rita genrette. I was 10 years old at the time and i remember it garnering national coverage as i seem to recall she was a politicians wife.
    I have it as a toxie triple and i remember it being a prettier movie than the transfer allowed it to be with tropical locales, etc. Will probably purchase this one but i am glad i will have both as i will watch the 4:3 transfer as it hits me more in my nostalgia place.

    One of my good friends was an extra in Flesh Eating Mother’s - the scene where all the kids are fleeing the cafeteria.

    Also, Donatella Hecht, who plays the main character Linda, was my dogs veterinarian in Danbury, CT!!! I was watching it for the first time and was like “wtf?! That’s our vet!”. lol.

    The movie is very B and meh at best, but still entertaining enough. I’ll be adding it to my library for all the reasons above!

    It is worth noting that both flesh eating mothers and zombie island massacre are on amazon Prime in what appear to be pretty good prints, at least for flesh eating mothers. Zombie Island massacre is a watchable VHS rip

    I did a little double feature of my Black Friday haul last night.

    Started with Raw Force. Despite my disdain for "cheese", this was a lot of fun. There were a few groan-worthy bits, like the sudden appearances of a cake or plates of spaghetti so they could make the inevitable face smash. It'll bring out your inner Crow T. Robot as there's plenty of fodder for riffing, but manages to avoid the utter terrible-ness of say, Miami Connection. Also had to re-watch the party scene, as the closing credits revealed it was Camille "I Spit on Your Grave's Jennifer Hill" Keaton in the awkward bathroom scene. Line of the movie: "Don't touch that, Harry. It'll give you the creeping crud."

    Followed it with A Climax of Blue Power. Another porn movie that manages to use sex scenes to advance the story, and also one of the closer instances of a porn movie venturing into horror. Not bad at all, though I probably wouldn't watch it with my dad.

    I purchased A Climax of Blue Power because a few members here said it reminded them of Taxi Driver. Personally I found it pretty boring. I wasn't sure what the point of the sex was either when they used body double quite frequently.

    I can see the Taxi Driver comparison; it's about a psycho loner with delusions of grandeur. As for a "point", well, at the end of the day it's still a PORN movie. The point is to show people fucking. But only the scene where he gets double-teamed in the massage parlor seems irrelevant. They'd already established that he uses his fake badge to abuse prostitutes. But I have to admit I wanted to see how the story ended. Exactly what Jack Horner aspired to in his diner speech in Boogie Nights.

    You weren't lying! So much fun. Didn't realize Psycho Cop was Bob Vance, from Vance refrigeration.

    From VinSyn's Facebook page earlier today:

    "A decent number of Blu-ray discs from our Hard Soap, Hard Soap / Disco Lady release have a manufacturing issue that causes playback problems during the film Hard Soap, Hard Soap between the 20-40min mark.

    Due to this issue, we are temporarily halting sales while our replicator represses the disc. If you are one of the unlucky ones who received a faulty Blu-ray, please email 'orders@vinsyn.com' with the subject 'Hard Soap replacement' and we will send out a new Blu-ray disc as soon as possible. Thank you and sorry for the issue!

    ~ VS"
