    Ha Ha, When I saw Overboard I had to check to see if it was April 1st. It just seems at odds with their normal releases. But there you go.

    Pretty sure the main reason Severin are releasing Overboard is it was a stipulation for a package deal they made for some future MGM-owned titles they are putting out.

    They said on a podcast when they sent MGM a list of titles, they put that on there just for the heck of it. They weren't expecting MGM to say yes and were shocked when they did.

    It's either this or a strategy to reel in more customers by casting a wider net. That's prolly why they started a Severin Kids line

    Since Code Red already released Retribution this isn't very exciting news.

    Seems like Severin has been re-releasing plenty of Code Red and Scorpion titles lately. Just the Fulci film for me.

    Yeah but it's Code Red, and a lot of the time it's super hard to acquire their releases, especially for international customers. So Retribution is pretty cool news.

    It’s my wife’s favorite movie. I’ll be damned if I buy it from Severin though.

    About Retribution, I hope Severin splices in the unrated footage.

    If they don't. Have a look at the German Blu. They have the fully uncut version on the disc it's in SD but from what I remembered it plays very well. They hsve the cut version in HD and, cut scenes separate as well.

    Yeah, I got that disc. :)
    Just wish there was an option to watch the HD version with uncut SD inserts.

    Excellent news. I haven't seen it but I saw Flesh for Frankenstein for the first time a few years ago and enjoyed it throughly. Plus Udo Kier elevates everything he's in.

    Apparently there's a still to be announced limited edition release to be revealed only on opening day? Some speculation it'll be The Last Shark (1981)...

    Au contraire, Severin has responded to conjecture that VS will be releasing Flesh for Frankenstein indecisively:
    So that's still be up in the air. Reportedly Morrissey fucked up while filming the 3D and shots aren't properly aligned. I doubt any distributor will touch the 3D. And Morrissey is reportedly difficult to work with in general so it may mean he's holding on for a 3D commitment.

    Dracula's release from Severin is a good sign though. I doubt Severin's paid through the nose. So something affordable is possible.

    I'm assuming Blood for Dracula will be available at the sale next weekend?

    Might be the only title I buy, but I straight up love the movie.

    Does that mean someone else is releasing this soon as well?
