Psycho II (1983) (Shout Factory) - coming to Blu-ray 9/24/13

Psycho III (1986) (Shout Factory) - coming to Blu-ray 9/24/13

 

Since Universal licensed these two out, I wonder if there's a chance that Scream Factory will get the Jaws sequels. On the surface they seem like fairly big titles to license but is Jaws: The Revenge really going to sell that much better than the Psycho or Halloween sequels?

"That's The Way Of The World" is the Earth Wind & Fire movie musical for which their breakthrough album was made in 1975...surprised but gratified to see it come out out in BD format!!!

Hi Brandon

Not sure if this is the appropriate forum to enquire about re-releases of classic material, but just in case you've heard anything, I'm wondering if there's any word about whether MGM's 'The Big Country' is going to get a new Blu ray transfer at any time soon.

I can't believe that the first Blu ray transfer is still in the marketplace, with its glaring transfer screen-ratio error which makes it look as if all the characters have been dining out at MacDonald's every day ... the current transfer should have been issued under the title 'The Big Fat Country'!

Cheers

I haven't seen any word on a new release for The Big Country. Sorry.

Shout/Scream Factory was releasing a double feature of Schizoid and Hospital Massacre in August. According to Scream's Facebook page, there was some kind of rights snafu and they had to drop Schizoid and replace it with What's The Matter With Helen?. The release date for the Hospital Massacre/What's The Matter With Helen? two pack is October 8.

Shout/Scream Factory was releasing a double feature of Schizoid and Hospital Massacre in August. According to Scream's Facebook page, there was some kind of rights snafu and they had to drop Schizoid and replace it with What's The Matter With Helen?. The release date for the Hospital Massacre/What's The Matter With Helen? two pack is October 8.

 

Can you provide a link? I couldn't find it. Thanks.

"And now the reprimand, from an American critic. He reproaches me for using film as a sacred & lasting medium, like a painting or a book. He does not believe that filmmaking is an inferior art, but he believes, and quite rightly, that a reel goes quickly, that the public are looking above all for relaxation, that film is fragile and that it is pretentious to express the power of one's soul by such ephemeral and delicate means, that Charlie Chaplin's or Buster Keaton's first films can only be seen on very rare and badly spoiled prints. I add that the cinema is making daily progress and that eventually films that we consider marvelous today will soon be forgotten because of new dimensions & colour. This is true. But for 4 weeks this film [The Blood of a Poet] has been shown to audiences that have been so attentive, so eager & so warm, that I wonder after all there is not an anonymous public who are looking for more than relaxation in the cinema." - Jean Cocteau, 1932
