    By day, Mark Hunter (Christian Slater) is a painfully shy new kid in a small Arizona town. But by night, he’s Hard Harry, the cynical, uncensored DJ of a pirate radio station. Idolized by his high school classmates (who are unaware of his real identity), Harry becomes a hero with his fiercely funny monologues on sex, love, and rock and roll. But when he exposes the corrupt school principal, she calls in the FCC to shut Harry down. An outrageous rebel with a cause, Slater gives a brilliant performance as the reluctant hero who inspires his classmates to find their own voices of rebellion and individuality. A movie with a message, Pump Up the Volume is a raw and witty celebration of free speech that will make you laugh, make you cheer and make you think.

    I'm glad the Lewtons haven't fallen entirely by the wayside.

    A welcome surprise. Criterion had picked up Cat People, then Shout released a few more so I'm surprised to see these revert back to the Archive.

    But with more restoration efforts going towards the Archive like Curse of Frankenstein, Wax Museum and Dr. X, maybe WB's licensing experiment has come to an end.

    Back in May 2019, Scream Factory actually had announced Isle of the Dead for an August 2019 release, but they announced an indefinite postponement almost a month later and ultimately the release was cancelled, altogether. I'm under the impression they weren't satisfied with the sales on their prior Lewton titles, and threw in the towel on doing any more, but I don't think they ever went into any specifics as to why this release was scrapped.

    I'm also really ecstatic to see Thundarr coming to Blu-ray. That's another DVD-R set I'll be happy to replace...

    I pre-ordered Pump Up the Volume, which is one of my all time favorite movies. The only downside is that, unlike the DVD, there's no full screen option. Why is this a problem? Because in the full screen version you get a better view of Samantha Mathis's boobs when she takes off her shirt near the end. That aside, I'm looking forward to the upgrade.
