Now that we've had time to sink in the news that Scorpion will be bringing us a ton of much requested eighties home video staples later this year, tell us which one you're anticipating most. Is it the prospect of finally being able to decipher the last half hour of the darkly lit HUMONGOUS, or is it seeing Michael Ironside with hair in AMERICAN NIGHTMARE? Make a choice, Elliot!

HUMONGOUS, hopefully we will be able to make out the last part of the movie. I have really wanted this on dvd for a long time.

Humongous without doubt , a transfer one can see will be great

Incubus and house on sorority row and final exam I have already, house in two editions

the human experiments a second if that is the one where the girl get locked in "an asylum" I've only seen have of that on a used VHS which my machine proceeded to chow down on.

Mark of Cain. Such a underrated little gem. Here's hoping for clean 16:9 widescreen print.

I want Humongous the most just because I like the cover and remember looking at it a lot in the video store as a kid. Never saw the movie and don't know anything about it though.

I just saw those poll results, everyone's hot for HUMONGOUS. I was torn, it was either HUMONGOUS or THE INCUBUS. In the end, THE INCUBUS won out. Loved that movie from first viewing, hated HUMONGOUS on first viewing, saw it a few days ago, for the first time since childhood, and now I like it. Will be getting both, however.

I've always wanted to check out The Carpenter, and remember the VHS very fondly growing up but I never ever did add it to the 7 movies for 7 days for 7 bucks deal... It just looks like a glorious slice of cheese I can't pass up any longer.

Definitely Humongous, but most of these interest me. I'll almost certainly rebuy The House on Sorority Row again for the new transfer and new features.

Been waiting for a long time to see a (hopefully) decent looking version of Humongous. I already have the original releases of the stuff that has been out before. I am really curious to see American Nightmare though.

Funny, now the Liberation House on Sorority Row dvd is everywhere again. A couple months ago no place had it on dvdpriceserach, except Wal-Mart. Today, dvdempire, amazon and bestbuy all have it for around $15.

Sounds like I should check out Humongous. I think I saw it back in the day, but not positive. Already own House and Final Exam.

Keep your expectations reasonable. It is not very good (though not unwatchable either). It is also pretty lite on the horror element.

Humongous! Just a fantastic slasher. Much better than Lynch's Prom Night imo.

Agreed! One of the few movies with Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee that I have never seen.

Humongous but from what I can remeber the ending was still really dark and hard to make out in the theater.

sicknick, wow, you actually saw humongous in a theater. 1982/? what was that like??

Humongous, no question. Can not wait!

After reading the interview over at retroslashers, I've come to the conclusion that Humongous might not be all that different from it's leap from vhs. They said it was directors intention for end of film to be extremely dark.

booper71, it's probably dark in the same sense that Prom Night 1980 is dark. So MUCH better than the VHS, despite some tough scenes. The version of Humongous I watched 4.5 years ago was clear enough, so I'm guessing that the DVD won't be that problematic.

I hope Humongous is brighter. When I saw it on HBO years ago I know the blood was red (not black) when Janit Baldwin got her face crushed.

I saw Humongous many years ago and it always stuck in my head. So I'll definitely be picking it up.

I voted for Humongous. I'll also pick up House on Sorority Row. The others, I have to find out more about.

Of course, if all these came out in a boxed set, I might just say "To hell with it" and take the plunge....
