    Hello. I didn't see this mentioned here, so for all of the exploitation lovers and other horror film lovers, Code Red DVD has a few blu's up for pre-order direct on the big cartel site. Code Red no longer sells in traditional retail or online stores. He just sells on this site. Sadly, there is no marketing for titles like this, even though they are pretty decent flicks. All of his titles, be them blu-ray or dvd are limited to 1000-1200 for the blu's and 500-600 for the dvd's. The blu's are supposed to come out sometime this week or next, depending on when the pressing plant gets them back. Many people no longer know that that company is still around and releasing some good stuff.
    Here is a link to his website/store http://codereddvd.bigcartel.com/

    Here are the blu's that he has on pre-order.

    Neon Maniacs (limited to 1200) http://codereddvd.bigcartel.com/product/pre-book-neon-maniacs-blu
    Mary Mary Bloody Mary (Limited to 1000) http://codereddvd.bigcartel.com/product/pre-book-mary-mary-bloody-mary-blu
    Savage Streets (Limited to 1000) http://codereddvd.bigcartel.com/product/pre-book-savage-streets-blu
    Nailgun Massacre (limited to 1000) http://codereddvd.bigcartel.com/product/pre-book-nailgun-massacre-blu
    The Redeemer (limited to 1000) http://codereddvd.bigcartel.com/product/pre-book-the-redeemer

    He even has all five in a bundle that saves a bit.

    He previously released two other great blu's that no one ever knew about.
    Just Before Dawn- which included both cuts of the film. The uncut USA one and the longer european cut.

    Bill sometimes seems mad that people mention these titles on sites like this, but how else will they sell for him. Basically he always says his titles never sell, but with no fanfare or marketing of any kind..how would they.
    I've ordered most of his recent releases as no matter how obscure of a title, he really takes care of them. He's released the first authorized widescreen 16:9 prints of many great films such as Love Butcher (2:35 for first time) Death Machines (also first time 2:35) Death Promise and Devil's Express (both are insanely awesome action films in widescreen for first time since release.)

    I recommend that everyone checks out his site for some great titles. There are quite a few good gems on that site. Other titles have already been removed since they have sold out their meager 500 amounts. If any of these titles interest you, check them out. I always laugh when I read people asking if this is out or coming out and I think, he already released this. If he only maketed these, more would know about them and buy them.

    Forgot to mention that pre-order is only for the USA customers. Bill says on his site that everyone else can order once the items are instock to prevent any shipping delays for the overseas customers.

    I ordered Dawn/Voices sometime ago, so they're probably still available. Haven't watch Dawn yet, but people say that it's pretty decent slasher.

    Bill is pretty paranoid about others "stealing" his movies and making bootlegs out of them overseas or something - I'd imagine that's probably why he shuns publicity. But he needs all the publicity, free or otherwise, that he can get if he wants to move his product. He gets plenty of free publicity already from his own facebook rants. I find them amusing. Still, I'm very happy he finally went high-def with these movies. They're not high art but they're fun flicks. Next up is Scavolini's slasher film "NIGHTMARE(S) IN A DAMAGED BRAIN".

    Sadly, I can't order any. I tried, but he won't ship to my country.

    Bill will only allow pre-orders for USA customers. Once they are in his hand to ship, he will allow other countries to order. He did this since I guess he got some complaints from customers out of the country complaining that their disc did not arrive within a non-realistic amount of time. They should be in stock soon. I will post on here when that is so you can order.

    Good luck with this. I had an absolutely horrible time dealing with Bill when I ordered JUST BEFORE DAWN-- and never got it. After nearly six weeks, I finally had to threaten to dispute the charges with PayPal before he refunded my money, but not before bitching me out about complying about it. I'll never order from Code Red again.

    Some Code Red product is sold through DiabolikDVD, which I can't praise enough. They've always been great.

    I've never, ever had an issue with Bill and his handling of plenty of my orders.

    I also have to say that I got the earlier BDs very fast. And I live in Europe.
