Just saw a screening of THOUGH SHALL NOT KILL...EXCEPT in Raleigh a couple of months ago,doubled with ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13 (the original,HATE having to add that ! ).I'd actually never seen it before,thought it was good,cheesy fun.The audience seemed to get a kick out of it.Might pick up this new disc.

Watched it yet? I loved Camp Slaughter.

I bit and ordered it from Barnes & Noble yesterday. With the 20% member coupon right now, you can get it for under $10 shipped.

Mine was $10.98 from DVDPacific.

I haven't had time to watch it yet, I've had family visiting and the horror genre isn't really their cup of tea.

I will probably watch it early next week. If you see it first, report back and give us your review!

Not sure yet. Talking to Bill. May have special on our site to order the DVD for $5.00 so people can get it.

Disappointing but it sounds like Synapse's hands may have been tied by Bill Lustig.

That's a bummer, it's a sweet commentary

I think I will wait for reviews on both the Synapse and Arrow blu-rays, then make my decision. I already own the Synapse DVD, so I already have some of those extras.

Gotta say though, I kind of love the artwork on the Arrow blu-ray.

I love BU but I'm gonna have to go with Arrow on this one. It pays to go the extra mile and Arrow is doing so by including a booklet and other goodies with their releases. And how can anyone not love that artwork? It's the icing on the cake.

I finally watched Frat House Massacre. It was maybe a little too weird for my taste. I enjoyed Camp Slaughter much more.

The big problem here is that the movie is nearly two hours long. And the "frat house massacre" doesn't begin until about an hour and a half into the movie. There are some interesting ideas here and there, but I didn't think it all really came together in the end.

They definitely captured that 70s/80s vibe though. The gore is pretty comparable to Camp Slaughter, maybe a little bit more here. They really amped up the sex and nudity this time around though. Actually, I don't think there was any nudity in Camp Slaughter, but there is quite a bit here (both male and female).

It reminded me quite a bit of Gutterballs. If you enjoyed that one, then Frat House Massacre might be worth a look.

+1 for frat house. Cool movie. Only Coulda done with more nudity and less sadism. I'm a lover not a fighter

Sounds like the transfer isn't an improvement over the Synapse release...and missing the killer 6.1 audio. Arrow wins on extras of course.

I like this film but Im not too familiar with it to speak for myself but some reviews state that the Arrow colors are more natural and accurate.

Like you said, the Synapse edition wins in the Audio but loses in the extras.

For me, Arrow it is, I like better extras over a more potent audio.

It seems that all Arrow editions have a weaker audio when compared to the Synapse/Blue Underground releases.
