zing! Vlachio, you gonna take that?

I actually like Scream, and will definitely grab it especially if it gets the Blu treatment. Good times, I bet rhett will get it too. I mean, he will have to review it I'm sure

I have to interject here. This is not true at all. Many of the projects we do require us to use 16mm A/B roll and we do this all the time. It's expensive, sure, but we do it because we want to present the film the best it can be. For example, I went from the original A/B 16mm negs for FANTASM, FANTASM COMES AGAIN, THE DEADLY SPAWN, A BETTER PLACE and even our little seen STILLWATER. I go in and re-time and create brand new single strand 16mm lo-con materials for our transfers, even supervising all the opticals (dissolves, etc.) and initial retimings myself. It's important to us, and to our fans to do this instead of using inferior theatrical prints.

When I was hired (twice) to do the original TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE, I went right back to the original 16mm A/B ECO negatives and started from scratch.

I don't understand what you mean by it being an "out of date system". It isn't a "system" at all. A/B roll consists of the actual film negatives on which a film is shot. To put the A/B roll together into a finished, edited film is a process that is still used every single day in Hollywood.

You may be thinking of Evil Judgment. I can't find a DVD for A Day of Judgment anywhere on Amazon.

Whether these two are even available is obviously the problem, but I think these'd be pretty popular. Do it for the Canadians!
I dont think there is any sense asking about Rituals anymore. I dont think Bill wants to comment on that one I guess.

Perhaps the difference may be that Synapse is able to do it because you personally are able to do it. For CodeRed, that might requiring hiring additional people. Reminds me what Mike Jittlov says, he does everything on his own films because he's free.

What I posted on the Code Red thread on avmaniacs:

With BCI gone and things the way they are with the DVD market, I'm a little worried about Code Red's release schedule. The main flicks people are clamoring for are still on the back burner and they're putting out stuff I'd think would be a lot riskier. Not the best survival plan, but hopefully it all works out okay.

I was thinking the exact same thing.

By the way, love your avatar. Long live GoatBoy (aka: The late/great Bill Hicks).

Im greatful for what they have brought to us, for the most part. But Im not gunna shell out money for crap movies just because they arent owned by major companies and are cheap to get.

Night Of The Dribbler looks/sounds like a giant piece of shit. With the way things are with the indie dvd companies, they go and spend $$$ on this one? Not a wise move.

I agree that it's worrying that Code Red puts something like Night of the Dribbler on the slate while some of their more high profile titles are still on the backburner. I'm much more interested in news about Silent Scream, The Mutilator, or Butcher, Baker, Nightmare Mare. Heck, I'm even more interested in Nightmares.

I support Code Red and enjoy their releases, but my budget doesn't allow me to purchase EVERYTHING they put out. Sole Survivor, The Unseen, Sweet Sixteen? Definitely. Beyond the Door, Dead Pit, Killer's Delight, Love Me Deadly? Sure. The Forest, Devil Times Five? Only because I hadn't seen them before. Hot Moves, The Curious Case of the Campus Corpse? Not so much.

Gotta agree. I just saw two pics of it on the fine slasher site retro-slashers.net, and I chuckled. Hate to say the same but indeed, what dumb shit. There's much nicer '80s stuff headed to DVD this year (My Best Friend is a Vampire, RePossessed, ect) to order off Amazon then such dreck.

Concerning the good folks on over at CodeREd:

Id much rather get an update on The Mutilator, Silent Scream, Buthcher, Baker, Nightmare Maker and Nightmare (semi-obscure film Savini did the special make-up FX for).

By the way, I notice Seatle born adult film star Gianna Michaels in your avatar. Nice ...
