Has anyone else noticed that this isn't, in fact, a Scream Factory release? It's under the Shout! banner. Anybody know why that is? (sorry if this was brought up earlier, I can't be bothered to comb through the entire thread)

It's a Shout! packaging error, roughly along the lines of the Captain America Colleector's edition Blu-Ray they released earlier this year or a reference to Robert Ebert on the back of one of the titles. They apparently repeated this same error for Q.

interesting. but now I am forced (forced!) to file it with my standard Shout! Factory blu rays, rather than the Scream Factory blu rays that occupy the shelf space directly beside them.

I'd have to look, but I think they also put blu-ray / DVD combo on the slipcover for The Howling, even though it is blu-ray only.

Yes, though I think I heard they corrected it on subsequent pressings. They really do need another set or a better set of eyes to proofread their packaging before these things go out.

Naturally, the only way to slow his degeneration into an amorphous mess is the consumption of human meat; lucky for him there's a veritable smorgasbord of fat nurses, goofy fishermen and sleazy photographers to munch on. Can the government find Steve and cover their space slip-up before it's too late? A supremely slimy throwback to the sci-fi programmers of the '50s, MELTING MAN features some great fx work from a young Rick Baker and a surprise appearance from Rainbeaux Smith as a reluctant skin model. No word yet on what extras Shout have lined up.

Currently down to $8.99 at Amazon.
