Awesome, awesome, awesome. This is one of my most awaited titles. I hope it's Alex Winter's preferred cut.

That's a solid list of cult movies there. I'm sure fans of Crime Story and The Pirate Movie will be pleased. The inclusion of Beastmaster as a Divimax special edition is a little odd, though, as the previous edition was pretty good. Ah well, a little double-dipping is okay as long as they're getting new titles.

Race With The Devil - yum! I hope the transfers in Ealing box are a little better than R2, particularly The Titfield Thunderbolt.

Saw this news last night, and was very pleased. I've been dying to have the great Race with the Devil on DVD fpor years now, and its very nice to see that AB is releasing it, as well as putting together some extras. I also look forward to Death Hunt, which I haven't seen in ages, but remember liking. All the rest of the titles are of no interest though.

Being a huge Bronson fan, DEATH HUNT was among my most wanted titles on DVD. I must have watched this film eight or nine times a couple years ago within a month because AMC was showing it every other day. I can't wait to see it uncut and in widescreen. Hopefully Fox will throw the Chan films AB's way.

I'm sure all of the good people at EES (Everything Except Shoes) are happy that Freaked is finally coming to DVD. As for myself I will finally be able to retire my laserdisc copy.

Seems like a good list. I'm not sure what else could be put on Free Enterprise; Pioneer's DVD was pretty packed. Maybe the film itself will get some new exposure.

Seriously, any sci-fi fan should check this film out. It's certainly not a perfect film, but it was made by and for true sci-fi geeks. Posted Image
