    Whoa, that's awesome! :banana: I always loved this movie back in the day, and have been dying to see it again. I surprisingly don't even have it on VHS.

    A little pricey...but since it's numbered/limited, I went ahead and ordered the Blu-ray. Not sure how many it's limited to, but I'd hate to pass them one up!

    That's great - good on Lieberman for putting out his own stuff too. I remember dating back to my BLUE SUNSHINE review here - he really cares about his movies still. He cares about the fans too, you can tell by that 2 copy limit he imposed so we don't get any more of those Twilight Time-esque hoardings.

    Yeah....sometimes I think he holds his movies a little too high in regard. Afterall, isn't he the reason why the Squirm episode of MST3K hasn't been released on DVD yet?

    It's definitely cool he is able to self release Remote Control though.

    Crap, I'd really like to get this but that's a steep price. Not saying he shouldn't charge what he's charging as I have no idea what it cost him to put this out, just that I can't afford to drop $35 on a movie.

    Woah! Have this on VHS and enjoy it's absurdness. I wonder if he'll be selling these at Cinema Wasteland, so may have to pick one up there if he is in 2 weeks.

    Wow! This news came out of nowhere!

    I completely adore Remote Control! So underrated, and way better than TerrorVision and Video Dead when it comes to TV / VCR horror.

    Also love the gorgeous Deborah Goodrich from April Fool's Day. Wish she had done more genre films, but at least she did these two.

    Still... not sure if I can spend $35 on the blu-ray, even though I really really want to. I have the movie on VHS, and it's still in perfect condition. And I kind of have a feeling that this might be the rare movie that is better experienced on VHS, given what the movie is about.

    Sounds like a few people here got it, so maybe I'll wait for reviews. Possibly screencaps? ;)

    If it looks great, I don't think I'll be able to resist.

    Tried to get a review copy, but Lieberman told me he's not giving out review copies for this one. Any reviews will come from people who bought it. Yeah, 35 is too rich for my blood.

    I've had a VHS copy of this for years but never watched it. Sounds like I'm missing out.

    Damn, the price is a bit too much with all these pre-orders and bills hanging over my head. Great cult movie! I have the Vhsps "release" but getting this would've been awesome. Oh well maybe Lieberman can get a dvd/blu-ray company to distribute this in the future.

    Wow, including shipping to Sweden = $45!!

    Haven´t seen this one, and I don´t know if I dare to blindbuy it for that price.

    Edit:
    I just downloaded an VHS rip and watched it.
    Glad I didn´t spend 45 bucks on it. It was kinda fun, but probably not something that I would re-watch, as it mostly was the wrong side of cheese for my taste.
    Kevin Dillon was great as always though.

    The scary part of the movie was the over the top 80:s fashion, taken to the extreme. That´s ONE thing I don´t miss about the 80:s, as some of it went totally mental at the second part of the decade, and also bled into the early 90:s as well :D

    Jeff Lieberman gave me some bad news when I suggested he take REMOTE CONTROL to a distributor for a wide release: "...I don't want any distributors involved nor any wide release. This is strictly for fans of my films or fans of the movie itself. After this, no more, but at least it now if finally lives on in the digital realm."

    No, not the fan excuse gain. That is simply a way for him to make full revenue.

    With a distributor involved, the fans will always be the same, and the release can get to all the fans, not only those who are able to spend $34.95.
