Well, I'm still here. I guess we're just waiting on some new releases. I recently got Frank Langella's Dracula, and it reminded me a lot of Hammer, with great sets and wardrobe. I recently saw that Suncoast had Kiss of the Vampire for ten bucks, but of course I'd already paid 20 for it. I'm expecting to close in on those last few titles I need soon, so maybe then I'll have something else to say. Titles out that I still need...

The Witches
The Reptile
X The Unknown

So what titles does anyone else need? I can't wait for any new titles.

I'm back http://www.horrordvds.com/forum/smile.gif, the holidays really kept me busy. HF, hope you got that Pete Cushing book. http://www.horrordvds.com/forum/smile.gif mutleyhyde, that's impressive, only 3 Hammer dvds left to go, you are about 10 up on me. http://www.horrordvds.com/forum/smile.gif I've been too poor to pick up any Hammer discs but I did pre-order those 3 cheap MGM Midnite Movies, 2 Dr Phibes movies and Die Monster Die, hope they are good. http://www.horrordvds.com/forum/biggrin.gif

I popped Legend of the Seven Golden Vampires in last night (had been studying for hours and need a little escape!). Now, I've gone on record before stating that I like the original version of this film quite well, and that the dvd is pretty cool in the extras department, and presents a great example of how important the craft of editing can be to a film (it includes the horrendous American cut). Only thing is, and I did in fact notice it the first time I watched it, either the print or the transfer is plagued by these football shaped, very light, transparant artifacts most noticeble in Van Helsing's apartment on the walls and ceiling as he first meets the head brother (forget his name), but prevalent throughout the movie. Has anyone else noticed this, either on this release or maybe on another dvd? I wondered if this was a problem with the print, or if it was some growing pains that good ole' boy Lustig and Anchor Bay had to go through. The footballs aren't really that distracting, if you can ignore them. It's not like they're solid shapes. You can see right through them, they just kind of wash out the color a little in the space behind them, and sometimes layer upon one another. In any event, I still say it's a worthy addition to any Hammer library.
