It amazes me that in nearly 20 years of DVD production they haven't been able to come up with a case that will actually hold the disc securely. Since almost no companies bother with inserts or booklets anymore its silly they keep packaging them in the standard cases that just beg to float the disc. Think how many more titles you could fit on your shelf if they were packaged in slim cases like box sets use or blu-ray size cases. (Rant over.)

wouldnt jewel cases work better? Never once did I get a floater buying CDs to Playstation to Dreamcast games in the mail. DVd used to be in jewel cases at the very start but it got taken over by snappers.

I haven't got a clue. I used a porn pressing plant since I know the owner. They seems to press when they feel like it. LOL I did demand them to get it done late next week.

VIRGINITY
EVILSPEAK
MACE
GOLD OF THE AMAZON WOMEN
HOW TO SEDUCE A WOMAN

whatever order they press and finish.

CURSE OF THE BLUE LIGHTS is week behind those titles.
That made me laugh. Doesn't really surprise me though.

Having Bill open the cases to make sure the disc is secure is actually a good idea. I would go a step further and put the disc in another sleeve and rubber band it to the case.

Four new titles up now at the webstore. According to a note, EVILSPEAK and CURSE OF THE BLUE LIGHTS should be ready in 2-3 weeks.

http://codereddvd.bigcartel.com/



Franco Rossi's VIRGINITY (1976)
A dramatic and intriguing love story about a Sicilian gentleman who rediscovers his Mediterranean roots when a beautiful young teenager declares her love for him. Antonio Mancuso (Vittoria Gassman, SCENT OF A WOMAN, QUINTET) has changed his name to Anthony M. Wilson and put his Sicilian background behind him to start a new life in London, as a ‘typically British’ owner of a chain of restaurants. For Anthony, life is perfect. He has a luxurious home, expensive cars and an English girlfriend, Vanessa (Madeleine Hinde, THE LAST VALLEY, BLOODSUCKERS), who divides her attentions between Anthony and her fiancé. But things are about to change with the arrival of a remote Sicilian relative, a provocatively attractive teenager called Lucia (Ornella Muti, FLASH GORDON, OSCAR) who presents Anthony with a letter from her uncle requesting that he looks after her and safeguard her virginity. This is no easy task, and in desperation, Anthony employs a detective agency to watch Lucia, only to be shown footage of her in bed with a young man. Relieved to discover that Lucia had resisted the man’s advances, Anthony goes home to find her in his bedroom. Challenged about the film footage, she reveals that the young man was not for her…the man for her is Anthony! Madcap comedy ROMP with international cast of wacky actors like Dudley Sutton (THE DEVILS, THE LEATHER BOYS, TV's LOVEJOY), Graham Stark (A DAY AT THE BEACH) , Lou Castel (MR. MEAN) and the goofy Adolfo Celi (THUNDERBALL).

Mark Lester's GOLD OF THE AMAZON WOMEN (1979)
Two explorers searching for gold in the Jungles of South America stumble onto hidden treasure of a different sort - a forgotten tribe of wildly attractive Amazon women, including sexy starlet Anita Ekberg as their queen. Donald Pleasence (Bond's arch-rival Blofeld in You Only Live Twice, Fantastic Voyage) and Bo Svenson (Choke Canyon, Butcher Baker Nightmare maker) have their hands full when the man-hungry babes invade Manhattan, and the excitement really starts. The steamy jungle is nothing compared to the throbbing city streets, and these women can't get enough! Directed by Mark L. Lester (Commando, Truck Stop Women) and produced by Alfredo Leone (Baron Blood, Lisa and the Devil), Gold Of The Amazon Women is a wild, bikini-clad adventure that makes Tarzan's exploits look like a trip to the zoo.
* Brand New 1.78.1 (16x9) HiDef master
* special interview with producer Alfredo Leone

Charles Martin's HOW TO SEDUCE A WOMAN (1974)
This sex farce stars Angus Duncan (SWEET SUGAR) as a lothario on a mission to sleep with five very different women! The list of beauties includes Angel Tompkins (THE FARMER), Alexandra Hay (SKIDOO), and Jo Anne Meredith (PSYCHO LOVER)! To accomplish his quest, he will need help from his crazy group of friends (Vitto Scotti, Marty Ingels, Hope Holiday). It’s a sexy version of LOVE AMERICAN STYLE with music by “internet favorite” Stu Phillips. Written & directed by Charles Martin (IF HE HOLLERS, LET HIM GO, ONE MAN JURY).

William Vanderkloot's MACE (1987)
Ed Marinaro (HILL STREET BLUES) plays tough cop Malcolm "Mace" Douglas, who gained the nickname by shoving mace down a criminal’s mouth! He is a street tough detective who's out for justice - no matter what the cost. While investigating the mysterious suicidal heroin overdoses of four sexy strippers, Mace puts together pieces of a deadly puzzle with his new partner (Darrell Larson, MIKE'S MURDER, OUTSIDE IN). Infiltrating a violent ring of shadowy drug and weapons dealers, Mace methodically tracks down a methodical serial killer. Mace won't stop until he gets some answers. The FBI and the KGB have them, but now they're talking back with bullets! Action packed classic with a good supporting cast including ISAAC HAYES (TRUCK TURNER), Corbin Bernsen (TV's L.A. LAW), Cassandra Gava (CONAN THE BARBARIAN), William Sanderson (BLADE RUNNER), John Hancock (TV's L.A. LAW), Harry Goz (MOMMIE DEAREST), Lynn Whitfield (JOSEPHINE BAKER STORY), Rick Washburn (COMRADES IN ARMS), and William Windom (FOOL'S PARADE). Directed by Willam VanDerKloot.
* Audio commentary with director and producer

So, those are the one that received the "porn" treatment.

Wasn't Evilspeak supposed to be a Blu-ray? I haven't heard a peep about their plans for high-def, at least nothing new. If it's supposed to come out in 2-3 weeks then that means it'll likely be a DVD unless I missed something. I wish there was some solid news on this.

Someone on blu-ray.com posted that their review copy of the Nail Gun Massacre blu-ray looked great. Supposedly this was a producer or rights holder. If that's to be believed HD Code Red may not be far off.

I recall the same thing being said about Deadly Spawn over on Blu-ray.com (which turned out to be an epic disaster) so I wouldn't put any stock in what a rights holder says. The fact that Synapse passed on Nail Gun on Blu-ray just like they passed on Deadly Spawn doesn't have me looking forward to any upcoming release.
