I see. Is the picture bad? I have the Orion VHS from the mid 90's which is okay.

Well, it's not AHHHHHHH terrible, but it wouldn't win any awards. I also believe it's 4:3, not sure of OAR of the film though.

Maybe if Don May Jr. stopped playing Xbox360 for 10 minutes and updated his blog more we'd know!

My parents gave me the R2 German DVD of THE INCREDIBLE MELTING MAN as a Christmas present. I've been looking over it, and despite some concerns, I'm glad they got it for me. Expect a review in the new year.

Oh wow!! Awesome...Executive Koala is awesomely hilarious and I've been looking forward to The Rug Cop for a while (c'mon...a toupee cop!!) This is great...I never thought more of this guys film would show up here in the states.

If you want a heads-up on Kawasaki, check out The Calamari Wrestler. It's way fun. I know Discotek also has Crab Goalkeeper on their upcoming schedule as well. Good times

I like Synapse. They are an enthusiastic bunch, and their releases are almost always intriguing to me. I haven't had a DVD from them yet that didn't impress me. And, unlike Barrel and Grindhouse (who also do stellar work), Synapse will give updates on a range of titles, not just ones that are right around the corner.

In June, Synapse posted on their blog about an upcoming DVD of Patrick:

Quote:
So, I'm sitting in a production facility today working on PATRICK and I figured I'd give you all a bit of an update. We have remastered PATRICK in anamorphic widescreen and we will be releasing it in October or November of this year. The remaster looks fantastic and our new transfer seems to have more picture information on all four sides when compared to the older out-of-print Elite version (just so you know).

A few of you that have heard about this release have asked us about the "Goblin" score version. The version we are releasing is the original uncut Australian version without the English dubbing. The "Goblin" scored version of PATRICK is indeed shorter and does not represent the original version. I did inquire about this version with the licensors and, while they didn't give me all the details, they said that the "Goblin" score version was problematic for them and that we wouldn't be able to do it. For those of you who WANT the "Goblin" score, you could certainly buy the excellent CD soundtrack that's currently available and listen to it along with our version of the movie!
Also, their latest batch of upcoming releases were mentioned:

Quote:
We are also working on re-releases of the following films (to come out within the same month or so of PATRICK): SYNGENOR, DARK FORCES, THIRST and STRANGE BEHAVIOR. And, as Synapse Films, we absolutely PROMISE to have better cover art on these than the previous now out-of-print Elite versions!

Cobbled together from very recent posts by Don May Jr. over on AV Maniacs:
Quote:
This just in... we JUST signed the deal a few minutes ago...

Coming in 2010 from us on both Blu-Ray and DVD. Details to come, as soon as we know what we may be adding.


There is a high def master done for it, but I really want to do something with the 2K scan... and we also will be programming it in select theatres before the release. Our version is gonna rock harder than any other version out there.

An to answer the question regarding the digital or 35mm of EMBODIMENT. We are looking into getting a 35mm print. Hopefully the same one they showed at the Fantasia Film Festival this year.

Mojica and his son are coming to the USA in early December on other business and they may stop by our offices, so we'll ask him if he's up for [convention appearances].
Blew my mind, and it really shouldn't have because he'd been talking a lot with them during the whole productions. I always assumed anyone else for some reason. This will probably be my most anticipated release and I'm glad I've held off from the ABUK Blu-ray despite how tempted I was.

Also:
Quote:
OK, I can spill...

We are also doing... (this one many people will find out of left field, but we had a million requests):

THE VIOLENT SHIT FILMS (a possible box set of all of them)

27 NIKKATSU "ROMAN PORNO" TITLES + A NIKKATSU TRAILER COLLECTION DISC (this will not be a 42ND STREET FOREVER release, though). These are absolutely CRAZY movies... so perverse, offensive and nutty. See some title details here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...an_Porno_films

The titles are, uh, certainly odd and Nikkatsu's translations aren't all exactly correct (but quite funny). Here are some that I can remember off the top of my head.

PEARL DIVER: TIGHT SHELLFISH
RAPE!
The NURSE DIARY Series
SHE CAT
ZOOM UP: BEAVER BOOK GIRL
LOVERS ARE WET
FAIRY IN A CAGE

We also just signed a GREAT docu we saw at The Fantasia Films Festival this year called GRAPHIC SEXUAL HORROR. http://www.graphicsexualhorror.com/

We are currently translating/subtitling the DIY French horror film, RESONNANCES, as well as ASYLUM (aka I WANT TO BE A GANGSTER)... a great little gangster/surreal/horror film we just picked up.

That's all I got as far as new stuff at this time (there are other things, I just can't talk about them yet).

We just finished the HD transfer of THE ODD ANGRY SHOT and are awaiting materials for DARK AGE (as well as some other clearances for it before we get started).

We also have at least two more 42ND STREETs coming (in the planning stages), including one on Blu-ray... and BASKET CASE 3, THOU SHALL NOT KILL EXCEPT, and a bunch more I can't seem to remember at the moment.

[THUNDERCRACK!] Next year is the anniversary, so we're shooting for October 2010.
Which again blows my mind. I love Japanese porno so much it's not even funny.

The Nikkatsu announcement did not disappoint...I was hoping either for that, Shintoho horror, or Wakamatsu Pro. Can't wait to see these start to be released. Hopefully the other three from Hasebe's Rape! series are part of the deal.

AWESOME!

I saw a Nikkatsu flyer at the American Film Market this year announcing that they had created new masters of the Roman Porno titles and they were now available for international sales. I was pessimistic and assumed they would have trouble finding buyers, so I'm very much pleased with this announcement.

Great to hear Synapse. It's a shame you can't get the rights to Basket Case, Maniac Cop 2 and 3, and Meet The Feebles. I can't wait to hear what the new SE of Basket Case 3 is gonna be!
