That thread's an unwieldy mess. I think it's good to have dedicated posts for updates, news, preorders, covers, reviews, etc.; I usually break off the titles I'm excited for anyway. Otherwise a lot gets lost in the shuffle.

As I said in the thread before, wouldn't this be the first time Pit and the Pendulum would be released on DVD/blu-ray mastered from the original elements? The Midnite Movie release, if I recall correctly, was non-anamorphic and a port from the old laserdisc. If this is the case then this alone would make it worth the upgrade.

The TGG Direct rereleases of PIT AND THE PENDULUM were a newer anamorphic print than the original MGM DVD. However, they're interlaced and drop the extras.

Love to get this but it is SO close to being a full Corman/Price/Poe set.Pitty they couldn't include TOMB OF LIGEA (if they wanted JUST Price films they could pass on THE PREMATURE BURIAL).A SECOND Price set could have included the two PHIBES films,Witchfinder General,Theater of Blood and Madhouse.

Still,not gonna look a gifthorse in the mouth.This sounds great ,love to have it.

***EXCLUSIVE KEY ART REVEAL***

Check out the classy new artwork for our upcoming Blu-ray set of THE VINCENT PRICE COLLECTION, illustrated by artist Joel Robinson.

The image on the left will be on the slipcase. The image on the right - with a clever “skull” reveal - will be on blu-ray case that will house the following films: Fall of the House of Usher, The Haunted Palace, The Masque of the Red Death, The Pit and the Pendulum, Witchfinder General (and its alternate U.S. version, The Conqueror Worm) and The Abominable Dr. Phibes. A 24-page booklet will also be included that will include original theatrical poster images.

The set is planned for Fall before Halloween. Look for more details on extras and exact street date later on this Summer.
