I read on another forum that Scorpion will test the waters for a possible BluRay release of Mortuary with Blus of 'House on Sorority Row' and 'Girly'.

Personally I think that 'Girly' is an odd choice to test the waters. It sounds like Code Red who initially wanted to start with 'The Electric Chair'. I would love to see a BluRay of Mortuary and fear that this might be ruined by this odd choice.

What do you think?

Girly is an odd choice like Electric Chair via popularity, but quality-wise, Girly is one of the best films in Scorpion's catalog. A Blu-Ray of that sounds marvelous to me.

Agreed, I'd much prefer Mortuary over Girly. I never even had any real desire to buy the DVD of Girly.

I'd re-buy Mortuary on Blu-ray without hesitation.

GIRLY out sold MORTUARY, which is why I put it before MORTUARY. but MORTUARY will probably come out before SILENT SCREAM, if that makes any difference.

I will buy all the upcoming Scorpion horror Blus anyways .
All the other ones I already have are top notch.

Is there a chance for a 'Humongous' Blu?

I'll buy the Girly Blu-ray when it shows up for pre-order, just to support you guys. I figure that I do buy at least 90+% of Scorpion titles that come out. That was just one I never was too interested in on DVD...so it'll be a 1st buy.

I just hope you really do release Mortuary on Blu-ray!

Silent Scream and House on Sorority Row are of course mandatory re-buys!

A Mortuary Blu-ray will rest (in peace) proudly alongside my DVD of it on the shelf . Love this movie.

I bought a copy of GIRLY but haven't watched it yet. I think it has something to do with wanting to watch first-time movies in the best quality possible (Blu-ray). I have a ton of movies on DVD that were blind-buys that I haven't watched yet, including a bunch of stuff from Scorpion. Have you considered doing combo packs, Walter?

BTW, I remember people asking for 92 IN THE SHADE on studio chats online years ago and someone basically replied (Fox, I think) that it was never going to happen. Ha, never say never! Will blind buy this one for sure.

Veteran actor Kevin Conway was kind enough to sit down to talk about his role in our upcoming DVD release of the highly acclaimed TV movie/filmed play of THE ELEPHANT MAN, which has often been requested by many who remember seeing it on TV back in 1982. Kevin gave us a very detailed account of preparing for the role, the history of the play of THE ELEPHANT MAN, etc. A great story teller, thank you Kevin for sharing the stories!

I watched it last week on Dish Network - it wasn't as 70's kitschy as I would have liked and it ended rather abruptly...but it's no worse than..."Don't Look in the Basement".

Blu-Ray.com is reporting this as a Blu-Ray release, but I'm not certain if they talked to Scorpion directly or if that's an inference on their part based on the Facebook posting. Unless Scorpion says this is a Blu-Ray, I'm going with the assumption that it's a DVD release.
