| Not to try and hijack this thread, but while we're on the Bruce Campbell topic, how many would buy a Raimi/Campbell box set of all their early Super-8 college films and shorts? |
I would love to see some of their stuff like "It's Murder" and "The Happy Valley Kid"
I certainly would! I'm a huge fan of the entire "Detroit Mafia" (Bruce Campbell, Sam and Ted Raimi, Rob Tapert, Josh Becker, Scott Spiegel, Joseph LoDuca). I have some extremely rough (read: barely viewable) versions of a few of the legendary early works:
The Book Of The Dead
Within The Woods
The XYZ Murders
6 Months To Live
The Blind Waiter
Attack Of The Helping Hand
Torro, Torro, Torro!
I would LOVE to have good quality versions, but, as far as I know, not even the guys themselves are aware of any footage which has survived in releasable quality. (Heck, I'd settle for almost any quality and pay almost any price if they'd throw in some whole-gang commentary!)
Even more off-topic: I would also love to see a legitimate, uncut domestic DVD release of Scott Spiegel's "Intruder" (aka "Night Crew" and "Night Crew: The Final Checkout"). I have an uncut non-domestic VHS, but I'm afraid to even try to transfer it to DVD.
The delightful bonus on this one, at least to me as a HUGE fan of La Femme Nikita, is seeing Eugene Robert Glazer, aka Operations, in this very early role. Priceless! Not to mention Renee Estevez, Alvy Moore, and Tom Lester (the latter two both "Green Acres" alums). A criminally under-appreciate slasher-genre gem, IMO.
Sorry for the thread drift. To get back on-topic...no, I haven't heard anything new about Brisco or JOAT on DVD, but I will forever maintain hope!
