    THE UNSEEN

    A television reporter (Barbara Bach) and her two friends head to Solvang, California to cover a Danish festival. When there is a mix-up at the hotel and they are left without hotel rooms, the girls accept the invitation of a friendly museum owner to board at his large farmhouse because the rest of the motels in and around town are sold out. But unknown to the women, something is living in the basement of the house. Their stay soon becomes a horrific nightmare when, one by one, they encounter the 'unseen'.

    TOMBOY

    Tomasina "Tommy" Boyd (Betsy Russell) has always been a tomboy. She'd rather tinker with cars and play baseball than dress up dolls. She tried to be the son her father always wanted. Now all grown up, Tommy works as a mechanic at Chester's garage. While working on racecars for racing entrepreneur Junior Leeds, she meets race car driver Randy Star. She is attracted to Randy and hopes for a romantic relationship when her race car driving skills are spotted by Junior and his partner. They offer Tommy a job racing against her new love, Randy. Who will win, and will the competition move this new romance across the finish line?

    Great titles! I'll add to my wish list. I have several of those on a multiset, but bluray will be fantastic for titles like these.

    The Unseen is probably my personal favorite of the bunch, so I'll definitely get that one.

    Solid drive-in movie titles, and two I saw at a drive-in, wish you best of luck in your releases, and waiting to see what is next.

    Code Red had The Unseen before. Is Scorpion Releasing doing a lot of their OOPS? I'd sure love another chance to get Messiah of Evil in good looking widescreen. I missed it before it went oop. Also, the adult Alice in Wonderland from 1976.

    I re-formatted the original post to be clear that it's not from me. I hope that Scorpion Releasing is successful.

    My Tutor (1983) looks like it went OOP at one time but keeps coming back up at Amazon (for around $34.99). I might be wise to snatch one up as the price was up around $235 when thought to be OOP.

    Make a nice pairing with Private Lessons (1982).

    I'm digging this little label - I picked up Joysticks and Force: Five, and both looked great and had a reasonable amount of extras on them, especially considering that one was a Porkies/Meatballs knockoff with video games (that nobody had ever heard of) and a Enter The Dragon knockoff (that nobody had ever heard of). They're going on my list with Shout! and the others as being a label to watch out for.

    I've got several Scorpio releases (Firepower, Puppet on a Chain and the new release, Killer Force aka Diamond Mercenaries). They are all quality transfers. And I doubt any of these films get released outside of this label. They've got another release coming up Movie, Movie that I'm looking forward to.
