The Nikkatsus are actually turning us more of a profit than ANY of ourhorror stuff these days, really. They are much more popular than we ever dreamed and releasing them has exposed our company to a much wider customer base, which has turned awesome. Horror is not pushed to the side, however, because it is the genre that is true to our hearts. We've still got DEMONS and DEMONS 2 coming next month, with COUNTESS DRACULA and THUNDERCRACK! and REEL ZOMBIES coming in the next few months.

Glad to hear they have a steady revenue stream. If it weren't for retro Japanese porn we might not even have Synapse Suspira Blu-ray in the works! If buying into naked Japanese girls leads to better horror releases that's win-win in my book!

Never really thought of it but I've actually ignored most of Synape's lineup over the years - always thought their offerings were too, um "strange". Horror is my main thing, and occasionally I may grab one or 2 extraneous titles like THE WORLD SINKS EXCEPT JAPAN but, yeah, I don't have a whole lot of their stuff. I know they said they won't abandon horror (Scorpion has already hinted at this) but I get the feeling this is exactly what's going to happen.

I've been more aggressive at buying Synapse titles because of their Nikkatsu line. I'll enthusiastically support anyone that releases quality 70's Asian flicks.

I'd love for Scorpion to get in on the retro Japanese as well. There are still many 70's Toei films that need an English friendly release. For the past few years Chiba's WOLFGUY ENRAGED has been at the top of my most wanted list. Please Walter, think about it.

New Impulse Pictures DVD release up on DiabolikDVD:
Quote:
42nd Street Forever - The Peep Show Collection Vol. 1 DVD (Synapse) (NTSC All Region)

Their place in history is undeniable. Hardcore 8mm stag films introduced explicit human sexuality to the public. Predating every other moving picture home format, these inauspicious productions provided not only a window to a whole other world, but also immediate relief for those not fortunate enough to make their fantasies into reality. Thousands of these underground movies were made between the 1960s and 1980s, and sold in the backs of sex magazines or distributed to the almost 60,000 private “peep show” booths located in adult stores in most major cities. Impulse Pictures is proud to present 42ND STREET FOREVER® - THE PEEP SHOW COLLECTION VOL. 1, a new, continuing series of salacious 8mm shorts, re-mastered from original film prints. This collection features fifteen classic “loops” with titles like “Deeper Throat”, “One Hung Low”, “Nurse’s Aid”, “Wet and Wild”, “Spice of Life” and more. Watch for adult film stars Annie Sprinkle, Susan Nero, Lisa DeLeeuw, and John Holmes in these raunchy rarities!

NTSC All Region
Liner notes from Cinema Sewer publisher, Robin Bougie

THIS IS A PREORDER DVD THAT IS DUE TO BE RELEASED ON OR ABOUT 3/11/2014

I don't think Synapse is going to abandon horror completely, Don and Jerry are both enormous fans of the genre and in the past have been willing to risk losses for films that they really wanted to put out. That being said, their horror output in recent years has shown a divergence that I expect to continue, a divergence where, on the one hand, they have acquired big titles like SUSPIRIA and DEMONS and, on the other hand, they have acquired recent, rinky dink little horror movies like HEADER and what have you. The big titles require a lot of work on their part, but can be guaranteed to sell a certain number of units. The smaller new titles might not sell much, but they also don't require as much work to put out, since the rights holders usually already have videos masters, sound mixes and basic supplements that they can hand over. I think that trend is going to continue. And I expect we'll definitely see fewer releases along the lines of THE DORM THAT DRIPPED BLOOD, a title which was not nearly as big as a SUSPIRIA or a DEMONS but was of a similar age and required a lot of work on their part.

I was trying, as I had good conversation with Tsuburaya and Toei at AFM but again, it all came down to licensing fee which were still rather high for the way things are right now.

I never said I am abandoning horror, I said my horror output is very limited this year, as honestly, all the key non-studio horror titles were licensed out (as I was outbidded on NOTD and WITCHBOARD), and the others are with the major studios, and whats largely left are scraping the bottom type of titles.

I think that's the right approach. releasing horror just for the sake of releasing horror doesn't make sense. Scorpion seems to have been releasing a wide range of interesting obscure titles, and that's the most important thing.

Seems like there's a bit of a pick up again with distributors these past few years, with a relatively big shark like Shout! Factory entering the fray, Kino hitting it harder than ever and new comers like Vinegar Syndrome picking up the low hanging fruit it must be getting a bit tougher out there. Kinda bizarre market right now. I'm wondering if we're building towards another mini-bubble burst.

Another bubble burst is what I'm afraid of and we STILL won't have movies like BLOOD BEACH, THE PREY, THE FINAL TERROR and a bunch of others that haven't even hit DVD yet. I'd like to see these films hit the market before another burst of the bubble. It's great that we're getting so much obscure stuff again on DVD and BD but much of what's coming out is ultra obscure, meaning too obscure for a blind buy. I'll blind buy anything horror from 1972-1992 but I'm not touching Japanese porn or no-budget Filipino karate-chick flicks lol

And I blind buy anything horror from 1920-1972, plus Japanese porn and no-budget Filipino karate-chick flicks. We're all pieces of a puzzle here.

I don't blind buy much anymore either, but I find a way by hook or crook to see the things I'm not certain I want. I wasn't sure of Just Before Dawn but I was able to watch it and decided to purchase it.

I think a lot of these frustrations need to be directed towards the rights owners. It's not Synapse's fault that Blood Beach or any other film isn't viable right now either because there's a legal snafu, issues with the materials, or the rights owners are just asking way too much.
