    November... blah! Still, happy for both. Definite buys for me.

    LOVE the hair story from BB. Keach kills it like he did in that Cheech & Chong movie.

    I don't think I ever saw Body Bags, but I'm in for both titles. Shout/Scream has been doing a pretty fine job on the Carpenter titles.

    I won't spoil any of the stories for you but it was made as a pilot for Showtime who wanted a Tales From The Crypt-clone series. Despite that, all three stories are pretty good (The Gas Station segment is really cool) and there's a lot of fun cameos and guest spots from genre favorites.

    I liked the Gas Station too. Many call that a weaky, but it had me on the edge of my seat first time.

    Another time when I picked up an OOP blu-ray only for it to pop up on another label mere months later. I wonder how Shout's edition of Assault on Precinct 13 will compare to the old Image edition. Might be the same transfer.
