Synapse but there are more than a few companies I'd hate to see go under on that list...
Then you obiviously didn't click on my horror subsection at the top of the list.
Here's a direct link...
Maybe you should have that address in your sig rather than the other one then!
soooo lazy... stop eating cheetos and do some web exercise.
As a US slasher fan, I'd be beyond saddened to see Code Red go down.
But I'd jump up and down if Troma just... went away. Truly.
Well said, and I snagged me a copy of THE SEDUCTION the moment it was released. It was a great treatment.
I'd be saddest to see AB go, no doubt about it. All of their titles hold a very special place in my collection and they've released the best horror titles from the 80s. Not to mention stellar Eruo-horror.
I love BU, Dark Sky, and Synapse...but they're in second place.
AB. I have lots of their releases and nearly enjoy all of them.
I have the most AB discs, but I think they're in the least danger, so I'll say Synapse. I'd really hate to see all of the smaller labels go. Sadly, it's the nature of business, though....you have to expand and move into new areas in order to survive.
SYnapse put out awesome quality consistently. I would be sad to see them go.
--I have the most AB discs, but I think they're in the least danger--
They're in the most danger, imo. They were bought by a mainstream label, Starz. You reckon they'll keep doing niche titles?
I agree with DUSK and go with Code Red since i mainly only buy slashers.I do own AB releases aso but dont wan any going away.Theres also Camp Motion Pictures.
What?...is blu ray HD fuckin whatever taking over?...are DVDs going to become the next VHS?
Blue Underground - although it feels like they are already gone.
I consider "go" to mean "go out of business." AB is probably the only label out of the bunch that has a large number of non-genre titles, therefore they have the best chance to survive in some form or another, even if it's not what we've come to expect from them [and as Rhett pointed out, AB is still putting out quality releases.] Unless Starz just has a strong desire to own the AB catalog, I don't really see why they would bother to acquire them unless they felt AB had the potential to generate revenue.
I think the big problem is basically that we're coming close to a point where there's going to be very little genre product other than new films, and I don't know how many of the other labels are going to be able to adjust to that. AB seems to be in a better position than most.
Anchor Bay easily. They've done so much for this genre that absolutely no one could fill their shoes.
How many of those companies own the rights to the most 80s slashers thats still not on dvd yet?
None of them do. Any slashers they release from the 80s are likely licensed from another, more major, company.
I picked NoShame since they also have an Italian branch (and the right connections I think) which releases very cool stuff on DVD.Their Italian DVDs are top notch and are screaming for English friendly releases!I want to see that happen
