    DIAGNOSIS MURDER is the title of the Lee film. And the ZULU DAWN that's out there could easily be bettered.

    I think the Zulu Dawn DVD release was in Pan and Scan. Considering it's a huge, epic widescreen movie the current release is unwatchable. They finally released it widescreen in the U.K., but the audio has lots of crackles and pops. I wish Criterion would release it. "Massacre at Central High" sounds like it might be more this company's type of film. I would love to see a watchable DVD of that.

    Would a release of THE KILLER INSIDE ME (1975) be possible?

    Now more than ever, given that a new version is due soon (and at Sundance now).

    It would be if you asked Warner Bros. for it, since they own the movie.

    Unless I've missed it somewhere in this folder on the HTF, are there reviews yet for The Internecine Project and Power Play? And have Scorpion Releasing got their own website?

    Just checked on DVD Beaver and they have a review on there for the Scorpion Releasing disc of The Internecine Project. The URL link to the DVD Beaver review is below:

    Go into DVD Savant's main page. At the bottom is a list of recently-reviewed movies. You'll find The Internecine Project in that list. (At least, it was there yesterday!)
    Incidentally, also at the bottom of the main page is link to an index of every DVD Savant movie review.

    I am so excited to see GIRLY being released on 3/30 I need to order some of their other titles also. I so hope they will release a few films on blu-ray also.

    But they seem to be releasing some cool titles and with decent extras.

    When watching some of the movie trailers in my copy of The Internecine Project at the weekend a couple of films stood out from the other films whose trailers I hadn't seen when I tested out my copy of Silent Scream:

    The Girl in Blue (aka U-Turn) & Say Hello to Yesterday.

    Is there a release date for these two films, and any word on what DVD extras (if any) might be on the disc for The Girl in Blue (aka U-Turn)? I've had a look on Scorpion Releasing's website and there aren't a lot of DVD extras on the disc for Say Hello to Yesterday.

    Judging from the trailers some of these look like movies that would air on the Lifetime network on Sundays, know what I mean? I thought Scorpion was primarily a cult/horror label

    "Judging from the trailers some of these look like movies that would air on the Lifetime network on Sundays, know what I mean? I thought Scorpion was primarily a cult/horror label"

    And who's to say a romance film couldn't be a cult film? Or are cult films by their very definition limited to the odd and the quirky?
