We keep adding stuff... I HOPE they'll be early, but the more we add, the less likely that is to be. But, we just want the presentations of these two to be the best ones ever, so we're taking our time to do them correctly.

On the surface the price looks expensive, but we HAVE to be able to recoup what we put into it, and the licensing costs (these two weren't cheap to license), coupled with the additional 50-80 hours of color timing and audio work do add up. We give our titles a little extra effort in the presentations than a lot of other companies do. I'd rather spend the money on additional sound and transfer work to make the FILM the best it can be and, sometimes, that isn't cheap. Most people complaining about the prices on DEMONS and DEMONS 2 think we're "overcharging" because of the Steelbook packaging and that isn't true. We just put more man hours into the presentations of the films. At the end of the day, of course, any consumer can choose to either buy it, or not buy it. In our opinion, what we've done with DEMONS and DEMONS 2 is well worth the price and, once people see it, I'm sure they'll be happy with their purchases. The fans just look at the price and think we're gouging, but they have NO idea the costs involved in creating better masters
