    Thanks Ron. I just ordered this
    I forgot about this one, and don't usually see pre-orders around here for obscure horror flicks.
    Keep em coming.

    Wow. Scorpion says that they'll announce 3 new titles in a couple of weeks if they get 200 likes! http://www.facebook.com/scorpionreleasinginfo

    I pre-ordered this.
    I've never seen it, but heard good things about it.
    I just wished it came out sooner for the horror challenge.
    I also liked them on Facebook.

    This is turning out to be a great year for 80's horror flicks that haven't had a home video release since the days of VHS.
    What is "Nightmare Theater Format"?

    Based on other titles I've seen, it's just video at the beginning and end of the movie of a woman giving some info about the movie (similar to the old horror movie TV hosts). It doesn't effect the movie and you can watch it without them on or you can chapter skip past them.

    Hmm...I thought Katarina's Nightmare Theater was being skipped for this one. But I'm glad it is back on. I really like the trivia, and fun facts about these old horror films at the beginning, and end of each film.

    Not quite the same, but Diabolik DVD was offering a chance to win the Thai poster if you pre-order from them. So, they said back in August. Don't know if the offer is still good.
