Mark my words:

Shout Factory: SLEEPAWAY CAMP
Synapse: PHANTASM

Besides, Don already worked on DAWN OF THE DEAD with Elite, remember?

I hope you're right... that will be awesome if so. As long as Anchor Bay doesn't release and screw 'em up, it's a step in the right direction!

Please, not Anchor Bay. That company is lost forever. No menus, no ported over extras, mediocre transfers, I don't think their newer discs even have chapter stops. They're just a shell of their former selves.

Chopping Mall might be the third film May was talking about that SF scooped up instead.

I'm thinking it's Suspiria. No knock on Phantasm, but I have some doubts that he'd run such a gambit to acquire that over all else. With his new Italian connections it seems plausible he'd get a heads up on it.

Scream Factory shot down Chopping Mall (and The Lost Empire) last month in response to an inquiry on Facebook.

Has Scream Factory mastered anything in 4K yet? I thought they mostly work with whatever masters they're given?

BTW, SF can't be trusted anymore anytime they deny something. We have learned our lessons with the Halloween films first and then NotD and Witchboard.

Not that I'm aware of. I'm not even sure they've been supplied with any 2K scans.

I'll agree that some of their denials have been a little suspicious, but in this case Wynorski said on 08/18/2013 the ink on the contracts was drying. If that's true and Scream Factory was the other party, they probably would have announced it by now.

The 4K transfer that Jim Wynorski mentioned sounds like Synapse and Don May Jr did post a response after that announcement had been made:
That would be great, but is this a film who is expensive at the point of letting three films go? I kind of doubt it, but who know...

A pair of new Impulse titles for release on 11/12, including a porn by one of the stars of LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT and another installment in the increasingly weird SCHOOLGIRL REPORT series: Fred Lincoln's OUI, GIRLs (1981) and Ernst Hofbauer's SCHOOLGIRL REPORT, VOL. 11: TRYING BEATS STUDYING (1977).

Preorders now up at Amazon. Direct links available at my Upcoming Releases list:

I think I'll put this here for now, when we get more info maybe we can give it its own thread...

Robert Harris has stated that Synapse Films will be putting out Triumph of the Will on Blu-ray:

The commentary, identifications and annotations by Dr. Anthony Santoro, which were created for an earlier version, have just be updated, corrected and extended.

Dr. Santoro is Distinguished Professor History and President Emeritus, Christopher Newport University, Newport News, Virginia, and one of the most knowledgable historians on the era, and especially Nazi history.

The task of digital work has been performed by Greg Kimble, who was responsible for the beautiful work on the Cinerama films.

Framing has been corrected, now revealing the entire original 1.19:1 aspect ratio.

A formal announcement will be forthcoming shortly.

This has long been one of my favored projects, as it's one of the most brilliant (and frightening) films ever created. While many people place it in the documentary genre, that is one thing that it absolutely is not. Virtually every shot was created for specific purpose -- plotted and planned for position of cameras, and performances perfected to the highest degree.

The amount of detail ( one can now see camera rising on specially created platforms) in HD is startling.
The original thread was removed but its existence was acknowledged again here: http://www.hometheaterforum.com/topi...e-will-thread/

Countess Dracula is apparently up next for Synapse.

From Facebook:

We got the last remaining piece of COUNTESS a week or so ago (an archival interview with Ingrid we wanted to use). Since DEMONS and DEMONS 2 needed my full attention first, we are starting COUNTESS next and it should be ready for early 2014. It also took a bit of time for MGM to get us access to the commentary we wanted. We didn't want to just take it from the older MGM disc without asking (which some companies seem to think is OK to do), so we went through the motions to obtain the use with their permission. Just took a little longer than anticipated.
