    When I first saw this on Showtime back in 1981, I remember being caught off guard that the tone of the film didn't quite match the sensational looking ads. However, I remember being really grabbed by the story and quite soured by how veterans were treated when they returned from wars. Good film overall. I love pairing this up with VIGILANTE.

    Just finished watching the Blu-Ray, Received it early from Axel, Looks fantastic apart from the opening credits, Colour and contrast are spot on, Shame their are no extras apart from the Audio Comm, A few extras on the upcoming Arrow release, I'll be sticking with Synapse though :cool:

    The theater still stands today. just think it was a one screen only. so the last poster in the frame was exterminator.. other moves that played here were THE FOG. ORCA AND THE CAR.. At one time it was showing x rated films. then budco took it over and they showed alot of B horror movies. iam trying to find out which other movies were show in 80 before it closed.

    You mean the one that says "The Exterminator"? If that's taken from the film then that's standard for how credits were processed back in the old days. Any credit sequence that rolled over footage was basically second or third generation, like making a film print from another film print rather than from the negative. That's why films always look so much cleaner and less grainy once the credits are over and the story begins.

    It always depresses me to see an abandoned theater.The multiplexes killed off most of the old single screeners years ago.There's still a few around but you really have to look for them.They recently tore down the building of our old BEACH theater to put up a pharmacy.The place had been built in 1933.

    The only reason why The Colonial Theatre locally is still running films is because it now has non-profit status. That and it gets most of it's money from comedians and musicians that play there. It's a huge old style movie theater that every town used to have but on a typical night they're lucky to have 10 people in the seats. But then, they no longer cater to mainstream audiences. Independent or high fallutin' Academy Award wanting fare there only (with the exception of when we have one of our Spooktaculars).

    The Carolina Theater is kinda like that,they have concerts and comics,state run thing.They lucked out however when they tried running FRIDAY THE 13TH PT. 2 one day and had a strong turnout.That eventually turned into the monthly Retrofantasma Fest,two double bills each month of vintage horror/exploitation films.It's become so popular that they also have a yearly Nevermore Festival,screening new international horror films and shorts plus a sampling of (mostly 80's) classics and cult faves.It's a four hour drive for me but worth the trip.Our only local one screener will occasionally run a quirky horror film (we got FEAST and BUBBA HO TEP new) but the manager just isn't a ''horror guy''.Pity.

    Our last grindhouse style theater closed in the early 90's.It was in a rough part of town but I used to slip down there to see all manner of horror flicks and sleazy actioners.Saw most of the ELM STREET's there plus wild ones like DEMONS,CRAWLSPACE,DEAD ALIVE and import shoot 'em ups like CODENAME:WILDGEESE.They even ran TRANCERS.Seems like there's no place anymore for low budget action flicks and the inexpnsive horrors like they used to run.Everybody got too ''respectable''.Damn shame.
