Definitely pick up VCI's version


Is that an import or a US release?

Eric City of the Dead is a US release, although it's R0.

Man, I completely missed the release of Invaders from Mars! I just ordered the 50th anniversary DVD from DVD Empire.

Don't expect too much; the print is in pretty rough shape.

I am, and have been, trying to find a copy of the Mario Brava classic, "Caltiki: The Immortal Monster" and I think I have, but........it is on a rare VHS/DVD website and the asking price for the used VHS tape is almost 100 bucks!!!! I was surprised to find out that "The Monster from the Piedras Blancas" is listed there too. I have a pristine copy, only been watched twice, and they list it at $150.00!!!!Posted Image

Seems to me someone said that a crappy version of Caltiki had been released on one of the budget labels (maybe one of those giant Brentwood sets?), but that's obviously of questionable legality.

My want list is huge too: basically everything mentioned in Famous Monsters of Filmland from 1972-1980, that isn't already on DVD Posted Image

Just want to second (or third) the motion for a release of Tarantula. I think this is probably the best use of an actual, living creature to portray a movie monster.

I mean, I've never seen a convincing lizard portray a dinosaur.

Chuck,

Sinister Cinema sells a DVD of Caltiki. I have a copy. Unfortunately, it's so friggin' dim that the picture is almost invisible. I tried to trade mine in at Blockbuster but it was no-go. Email me if you want more info, jstrnad@verizon.net. You'll have to go through some SpamArrest stuff to get through.

The Village of the Damned/Children of the Damned DVD is out now.

Another vote for Tarantula, one of the most-nearly-perfect 1950 giant spider movies ever made! Most of the rest on the various lists get my vote, too.

Just thought I'd bump this and make my plea to Universal to release Tarantula on DVD. Oh, and I'd like to see Deadly Mantis too.
