All right folks, I was gonna wait till I was on Dead Pit Radio to say this but what the hell.

Okay - so here's the deal, MGM is currently looking into the rights they have in the film (music, artwork, etc.) and providing that all checks out we may see a DVD release of the film by February.

However, this is NOT concrete. There may be rights issues, they may license it out through another company - I believe Shout Factory is in talks with grabbing some MGM titles and now this one may be included - or they may just throw it on a few channels or on iTunes.

But this a direct quote from MGM;

"If everything checks out, it will get released somehow – maybe iTunes, maybe MGM’s HD channel, maybe through Fox, maybe through another DVD distributor….but I’ll keep you posted."

So there you have it folks, somehow, someway THE VIDEO DEAD will be making its way into our homes and it's all thanks to everyone who participated in the campaign and helped get the word out there.

You guys are awesome and I appreciate everything you guys have done.

Everyone except Dentists who I'm now happy to say; TOLD YA SO BITCH! Haha! I keed...lol.

The page is going to remain up until a definite release date is planned, I'm also going to keep MGM updated on the status of the page - friend requests, emails, comments, etc. - until the film does come out in some form.

Now if it doesn't make it to DVD but makes it to the MGM HD channel or iTunes, this still did work. Because obviously if it does well or enough people watch it when it comes on, a DVD release will happen eventually. Again it may not be through MGM or Fox, but they are the ones who are going to license it out through someone else so it is still THEIR decision as to whether or not it will come out.

So it's no longer a question of "if" now, it's just "when".



Thanks guys, you all rock!

Congradulations, Chris my good man!

I must say, it's nice to see someone every bit as passionate about older genre films and general Horror as me, and for that person (you) to be responsible in a very large & meaningful way, to have a fine, old school title, finally hit DVD shelves. Like I've said before, you desurve your own featurette, or at least a thank you in the DVD credits, once it is finished and pressed.

By the way: I love the good ol' eastern Prestonsburg, Kentucky boyz on over at www.deadpit.com! I've been busy as of late, but I am catching up on they're last two big horror poster up-dates on YouTube, as well as they're latest two shows that I have downloaded and saved in HD. I know they really don't like this website that much, and I don't agree with everything they say, but I actually really like'em . Again, congrads, Chris.

You guys are amazing. I think a round of applause goes to MVD and Televista too. If they didn't try to illegally release it on a crappy disc, there would have been no backlash to the situation and shutting down of their plans, and MGM probably never would have released this. Thanks Televista! :P Hehe, this is amazing.
