I know most of you were only interested in the announced titles (and disappointed with the titles that were announced), but Comic-Con panels are more than just press releases. They're discussions about the business, the hoops they have to jump through to get licenses, etc. Of course, they talked about the difficulty of finding people for bonus material. They compared it to current movies, where the Blu-Ray extras are done while the film is in production, vs. older movies where they have to reach out to people for something they did 30 or more years ago. It's not quite as easy.

After the Scream Factory talk, Adrienne Barbeau came on and talked a lot about her memories of making those genre films (mostly talking about Creepshow, The Fog, and Swamp Thing), and it was really cool as she told funny stories and doesn't appear to regret that part of her career one bit (bonus tidbit: she has never drank alcohol, so playing the part of Billie in Creepshow was a real stretch).

Anyway, while I too found the upcoming title announcements pretty uninspiring, it was still enjoyable to hear them talk for an hour about what it is they have to do, and the difficulties of being a company that specializes in older films (just an FYI, at another panel, I saw Leonard Maltin talk about Hollywood history, how they used to consider films "disposable", and never saw the reason for retaining old prints and negatives. So companies like SF really are facing an uphill battle most of the time).

Another thing you have to keep in mind is that Shout! has, in a sense, nowhere to go but down in terms of the titles available for them for licensing, due to the fact that they have already released or announced many of the movies that fans wanted most. They've already gone through the Corman and Universal catalogs and released the most desirable (and many of the less desirable) cult holdings therein, and now they are working on picking the MGM catalog down to the bones. Eventually all they'll be left with is crap, sort of like how Anchor Bay, once they had licensed all the Fulci and Argento films that were worth bothering with, were releasing Bruno Mattei movies to fill the Eurohorror niche they had made for themselves.

Review for A Boy and His Dog Blu-ray + DVD Combo: http://www.dvdverdict.com/reviews/boyanddogbluray.php

This one should be a momentous A/V upgrade from the old DVD editions.

I have to admit, these announcements were a big disappointment to me. If they just a announced them out of nowhere I'd probably be happy, but they hyped them up for weeks now.

Assault on Precinct 13 (1976) - The Image release apparently already looks great and has some decent extras so this probably isn't a big deal to most. That being said, I almost bought this on Fri., as it's one of the few Carpenter releases I still need to get on Blu-ray only to find out it's OOP and sells for $50+, so this is an exciting release for me. I'm sure Scream will include some great extras and hopefully all the previous extras.

Nightbreed (1990) - I already talked about this in its respective thread. It's exciting but until we see what the added footage looks like and what extras they include, as well as whether they will include the theatrical cut who knows how it will turn out. Plus we already knew this was coming so it's not that big of a surprise, other then the fact that Scream is releasing it which is a good thing. A big title and a big release in the end though.

Cat People (1982) - I haven't seen this but many seem to be excited about it so I'm sure I'll pick it up.

Darkman (1990) - I already have this on Blu-ray and I don't think it's even that good. Being a Raimi title I know I'll upgrade it though, hopefully Scream delivers some worthy extras. Not one I'm excited for though.

Eve of Destruction (1991) - Never heard of it. It looks okay.

Saturn 3 (1980) - Never heard of it. Doesn't look very good.

Terror on TV: The Initiation of Sarah / Are You In the House Alone DVD - Glad to see Scream has decided to give some TV horror movies a chance even though Cliff has stated they don't sell very well. I haven't heard of any of these, but Initiation looks like it could be good. Are You in the House Alone looks and sounds pretty bad though, doesn't even sound like a horror movie. I am surprised this is the best TV movie they could get? Not the best way to start out a hopeful new line with is it?

Cat People (1982) is indeed a very good film.

Pfft, you crazy man. SATURN 3 is like PSYCHO in space!

The music is totally awesome. The special effects are pretty mediocre in places (obvious minature spaceships on occasion) but the robot is killer and there's a hefty amount of gore. Plus it's Farrah's first nude scene - how can you go wrong?!?

Definitely....Cat People is probably the title I am most excited for aside from the Nightbreed BD. One of the best synth scores from the 80's.

I can't understand why everyone is so down on Shout!'s recent title reveal. Aside from Assault on Precinct 13, I think this slate of releases is great.

Don't you worry, I'll pick it up like I do all Scream's releases and give it a chance. The trailer just didn't look too good to me. Why the hell is the robots head so damn small, it doesn't make it look very menacing.

Cat People on Blu-Ray. I'm all over this. I can let go of my DVD. Me, my brother, and our Mom, who was the coolest Mom in the world, we all three saw Cat People in the theaters in 1982. My Mom passed away, it will be 16 years ago, on August 6th, and she would always, every weekend, take us to the movies, from about 1977 through 1985, and during that time, we saw alot of horror films in that time frame, because my mom was a huge horror fan. I now have my mom's name tattooed on my arm, Cheryl, because Ellen Sandweiss signed her name below her tattoo as possessed "Cheryl" The others, not sure if I will get or not. Darkman I already own on Blu-Ray, and rather enjoy it very much. Not sure if I want to double dip or not.

Not sure if it has been mentioned before, but I agree with Shout Factory. Just skipped through the fog and the screenshots posted elsewhere TRULY didn't do the disc justice.
It looks great!
