At 43 years of age I can honestly say I have never watched a Power Rangers episode in my life. I don't think that will change any time soon. Thanks for the heads up on the others though, just pre-ordered Funhouse and Terror Train. I think I have more pre orders on Amazon currently than at any time previously !

All aboard Roger Spottiswoode's TERROR TRAIN (1980), coming to blu from Shout! Factory's new Scream Factory imprint!

Med school dork Kenny thinks he's getting lucky with Jamie Lee Curtis at a New Year's shindig, but instead winds up under the sheets with a corpse. Joke's on you, Kenny. Years later it's party time again, this one a costumed soiree inside a cross-country locomotive. As expected, a disguised killer starts cutting up attendees -- could it be Kenny, still pissed after his mental institution stint? Or Ben Johnson, the creepy train conductor? Class clown Ed? Prank organizer Doc? Or David F'n Copperfield, who's the on-board entertainment?! (Seriously.)

Marching to its own beat since the subgenre's tropes weren't really established yet, TERROR TRAIN was one of the earliest '80s slashers out of the gate in the wake of HALLOWEEN's success. It's not the goriest, nor the sleaziest, but remains a fun time nonetheless, and one that probably looks better today in the wake of all the crud that's been foisted on us since. Unlike the decade old barebones Fox DVD, this one promises to be a real special edition; a director's commentary has already been announced, with more supplements on the way. Keep 'em comin', Shout!

Pre-order now available:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...SIN=B008HUSFXE

The trailer:

(Hopefully you guys are okay with these write-ups I've been doing; I usually just post 'em on my Facebook whenever an interesting pre-order gets announced, but I figured why let 'em go to waste?)

It's been a long while since I've seen it but if you like old school Japanese guys in rubber suits Godzilla styled ripoff stuff it's kinda fun. The spin offs like VR Troopers were especially bad so I actually tuned into that more. I had already tuned out by the time Big Bad Beetleborgs came around but I was half tempted. Honestly I just found the real old school Japanese guys in rubber suits better.

Some info from Michael Felscher told by Blu-ray forum member Frightener22:

http://forum.blu-ray.com/showthread....=1#post6179165

"In addition, Michael Felscher of Red Shirt Pictures, the company responsible for the special features on the Scream Factory discs, was at a recent convention conducting a Q&A and he mentioned that they have Carpenter's involvement on "They Live". He also went on to mention that they have already shot interviews with him. Although, he declined to be interviewed for "Halloween II" and "III" simply because he didn't direct them. Fair enough but it still would have been interesting to hear his opinions on those two flicks. Felscher admitted that at this time it appears that "Phantasm II" will most likely be the most stacked release as far as features. Interviews, commentaries... the whole nine are apparently planned for that one."

And FYI, so far the releases will have slipcovers containing the new commissioned artwork.

Glad to hear that Phantasm II will have a lot of extras but it feels like it could be the least popular title out of this batch. I'm basing this statement on the fact that nobody seems to be talking about it much. Still, great news.

Carpenter had nothing to do with Halloween II or III but it still would've been interesting to hear his point of view on the films. A Carpenter commentary for HIII could've turned out to be VERY interesting (and would make for a killer extra).

I find the idea of slipcovers sort of pointless because it's always the same art as on the case itself. If Shout is embossing the slipcovers with the new artwork then it's OK. I'm a big fan of original artwork so I'm happy that they're including both even if the font is different.

He wrote and produced those films you know. But yeah, I would like to hear his point of view on 4-II Remake.

No one’s talking about Phantasm II because few information has been released about it. Everyone is still soaking up the amazing features and cover art for the recently revealed Halloween sequels, The Funhouse, and Terror Train. And for me personally, Phantasm II is definitely one of my most anticipated of the Scream Factory bunch.

Uh, Carpenter actually had a pretty substantial involvement with both. He wrote the sequel in one night with the help of a 6-pack of Bud. Carpenter also chose director Rick Rosenthal when Tommy Lee Wallace declined. He also made changes to Rosenthal’s final product (including reshooting scenes) which is now the Theatrical Cut of the film. A lot of what you see in the Halloween II TV Cut was Rosenthal’s original vision.

Carpenter also produced Halloween III and also did the musical score. It was JC’s idea that Halloween III not be another slasher film involving Michael Myers.

His response to the Halloween sequels has always been the same…he wishes them the best of luck, and thanks them for adding more money to his bank account.

Just goes to show how much I know about the Halloween films :-). I imagine Carpenter must have cut ties to the series at some point or was he was involved in some capacity right through the Rob Zombie films? Now I'm really hoping he'll change his mind and become involved with the extras for II and III.

Phantasm II is also my most-anticipated release. I'm hoping Cliff has the same amount of enthusiasm for Phantasm that he had for Halloween and tracks down that workprint footage.

Nah, after Halloween III, JC was done. Early on into the pre-production of Halloween 4, Carpenter was set to direct and even co-wrote an early script, but Akkad rejected it. After that, JC signed all his rights to Akkad.
