    Fearless Vampire Killers

    I'm with ya Mark...let's hope they kept the MGM lion morphing into the animated vampire - that was a stroke of genius (and kind of sets the tone for the movie in my opinion). Jeff, thanks; as you know, I will indeed enjoy watching this movie (especially during the upcoming winter months). I...

    Fearless Vampire Killers

    I was pleasantly surprised to see The Fearless Vampire Killers pictured on the upcoming Tuesday releases page of the Sunday newspaper Best Buy advertising circular. Many people have never even heard of this film so the fact that it was listed with cover artwork is pretty cool. To be honest (and...

    Fearless Vampire Killers

    Okay, so I'm late to the party :) This is as one might expect from my sig, awesome news in my opinion. I think Ken Koc is right on the money with his comment regarding the longer and shorter versions. I say this because even my MGM/UA Turner VHS tape from 1990 is the longer uncensored version...

    Fox, thanks for 300 Spartans

    Yes, thanks to Peter Staddon and the others at Fox for this excellent recent release. The 300 Spartans is a guilty pleasure of mine and I enjoy watching it with my 2 sons. By the way, the studios should keep one thing in mind in regard to the release of "lesser" (and sometimes obscure) films on...

    300 Spartans Release Date?

    Great news, Richard (and others)! I just saw on Bill Hunt's 'The Digital Bits' website that The 300 Spartans is scheduled for a DVD release on May 11th...no details other than that at this point. I'm psyched.

    "Slime" Movie Double Feature!

    Okay, maybe these 2 films are a little obscure (but still a hoot). Trivia question to all you Italian horror fans...what big name in the Italian horror film industry was the cinematographer for Caltiki, the Immortal Monster? First person to consult the IMDB website and respond correctly...

    "Slime" Movie Double Feature!

    Does anyone else agree that a great double feature DVD release would be the "killer slime" sci-fi films Caltiki, the Immortal Monster(1960) and The H Man(1959)? Having these two together on the same DVD would be pretty cool indeed. Hey, I can dream, can't I? Anyone know who owns the rights to...

    300 Spartans

    Yep, the IMDB states that Troy will open in theaters sometime in May. I found it interesting that Peter himself said that this is one of his "guilty pleasures". Needless to say, this information regarding the film's DVD release is wonderful news.

    WARNER - Fearless Vampire Killers?

    Well, well...I just might have to change my sig file soon. In the event you haven't read it, Barrie Maxwell over at The Digital Bits (who does an excellent job with his 'Classic Coming Attractions' column), states in the latest edition that The Fearless Vampire Killers will be released by...

    300 Spartans

    Yes, we need The 300 Spartans on DVD soon! If Peter Staddon still drops by this neck of the woods on a regular basis, I'm sure he's aware of the anticipation surrounding this release. I'm sure I speak for all of us when I say I'm really looking forward to seeing those columns of Spartan soldiers...

    New Line- Three titles wanted on DVD

    I would buy The Rapture in a heartbeat if it was released on DVD, 16:9 anamorphic please. Any bonus features such as commentary (hopefully involving Mimi Rogers and the director at the very least) would be most excellent. Also, I'd love to hear this soundtrack in 5.1 surround...specifically, the...

    Paul Verhoeven Collection

    Great news re:Verhoeven's Flesh & Blood; according to DVDFile.com MGM has announced a DVD release for February '04, although no details are available yet. I'm psyched.

    Any sign of Polanski´s FEARLESS VAMPIRE KILLERS coming to DVD?

    Sergio, many threads have been started asking about this film's release on DVD. Other forum members have stated in various "These films need to be released on DVD" threads that they too wish to see The Fearless Vampire Killers released. I can't remember the guy's name (apologies to him...

    Your most-wanted candidates for Fox's Studio Classics in 2004?

    I'd love to see Hitchcock's Lifeboat and the sword and sandal classic The 300 Spartans released by Fox.
