Media Blasters urge you not to Scream or Riot over delays

Sad news for slasher fans, as Media Blaster's upcoming DVD treatment of one of the worst slasher movies ever made, 1981's SCREAM, has been indefinitely postponed. The same goes for their RIOT ON 42ND STREET and RAREFLIX sets (Vol. 5 & 6). Production Supervisor Richard York says the "originally announced release dates are now null" and "to the best of my knowledge, these titles will come out at a later date but those dates have yet to be set by sales and management." It sounds like more than a delay...these titles, and future Media Blasters product seem to be in limbo. This news just following their noteworthy release of the jam packed DVD of PSYCHOS IN LOVE.

Another product of the recession? Say it ain't so. Hopefully these do see the light of day, for at the very least people deserve to at least see the inexplicable SCREAM ending at least once in a digital format.

More updates as they transpire...

I hope the company isn't in any serious trouble, as you seem to reply. I'm looking forward to their release of Monster X Strikes Back: Attack the G8 Summit! on June 30.

I don't think they are in trouble, just that they are being hit by the recession just like every other niche DVD company out there.

Sad times. I was really looking forward revisiting Scream in 16x9 HD and with audio commentary. I just hope we don't have to wait too long on this one.

My copy of Riot on 42nd street was preordered on amazon.com for around TWO YEARS!! This is the second time it has been pulled and I have been wanting to see this film, and based on the pre-ordering concept I had just assumed it was coming out. The heck with this, I'm getting a bootleg.
