    Each release in this very special collection will boast a numbered spine, additional features, a reversible sleeve and an informative new booklet, with writing on each respective film, from author Calum Waddell – the erstwhile producer of such documentaries as 88 Films' own SLICE AND DICE: THE SLASHER FILM FOREVER. Most importantly, of course, we can promise uncut and uncensored prints – with each hack em' up epic looking bloodier and better than ever before!

    While I didn't think the movie was as bad as some say it is, I don't think I'll be spending any money on it.

    I think you guys are referring to the Austrian DVD which is legit. Don't Go in the Woods was never released to DVD in Germany (yet), as the movie remains on the index in Germany.

    Okey, I must have gotten this totally wrong.
    I remember Bill complained (as usual) that some company in Germany/Austria ripped off his discs?

    Isn´t it completely clear by now, that every European company that releases a movie the Code Red has released before is considered a bootleg to Bill?

    Yeah, and he always complains about that the Euro releases sells better than his.
    I wonder why ;) :D

    Bill stated on his Facebook he will not be releasing a Blu of this as he no longer has the rights.

    :lol::lol::lol:

    Have you seen any of the Code Red BDs? Clearly, prime examples of the format. :rolleyes:

    I have their first 7 BD releases. It's nice to have them in HD and all, but don't kid yourself: it won't be hard for any company to release a superior product. They just have to do a good job avoiding compression artifacts, something CR is perfectly inept at.

    For the record, 88 Films is a competent label, and surely capable of releasing a much superior product to Code Red.

    Since Vinegar Syndrome is getting some other titles that Code Red lost their rights to (Madman, ...), maybe they will release this as well? Their transfers are always top notch. For those not aware, they have their own scanning equipment, and they do transfers for other labels (Synapse, ...).

    This I didn't know...interesting. Too bad Synapse only releases about 2 titles a year on average. That's what it feels like, anyway.

    Code Red is the only label that's releasing movies in high definition "as is", meaning they don't remaster their titles before putting them on a Blu-ray disc. So unless you don't like the warts and all nature of the PQ on their BDs then they're not for you :). Personally, I don't mind, just as long as they don't look soft AS WELL as scratchy.

    I know that, and I don't have a problem with transfers using materials "as is".
    But most of their releases have noticeable compression problems. That isn't due to the materials used, that is a sign of poor encoding, and poor quality control.
    Considering the owner of Code Red said not to long ago that he didn't even have a BD player, I'm not surprised. :p

    Oh, I wasn't directing my comment at you, sorry if it came across as that. I was just adding to the conversation :)

    Yeah, the problem is that Code Red only uses single layer discs.
    Just Before Dawn and Nailgun Massacre suffered for this, since they had two different transfers on one layer.

    So does that mean that in the future "Madman" Bill can´t accuse 88Films of releasing a bootleg???

    Sorry for that "Madman" Bill...

    Competent/capable label? Did 88's Bloody Birthday blu blow away the USA release? They don't exactly have a barrage of releases, some Full Moon & Troma stuff? None of which deserve awards. I decided to wait for Troma on the uncut Bloodsucking Freaks. 88 are pretty new, aren't they?
    Code Red is a very capable company *cough*Scorpion*cough* A huge part of the lack of quality on recent releases is simply the forgotten titles they are releasing these days, which have limited sources to be found. All have made me happy. Especially Just Before Dawn. The latest barcode free/direct sale route is a bit confusing, but I don't see a title like Unhinged getting a much better looking release than Code Red's, but it will be a higher bit rate since it doesn't appear to also include (with another commentary) Murder Run.
