    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.

    More Herzog & Polanski on the way!

    Always good to hear that more Polanski films are being released on DVD. What a coincedence that I perused over this thread tonight...as I type this we've got a rental DVD of Death and the Maiden in the house, which I definitely enjoyed because of Sigourney Weaver's and Ben Kingsley's...

    300 Spartans Dvd

    Richard, I've got to hand it to you...you're persistent :) Patience, my good man. I too am chomping at the bit to have this sword and sandal epic on DVD; heck, one of my kids even asked me about it recently (he's seen part of it on AMC and is anxious for Dad to buy it...chip off the old block...

    300 Spartans Canceled by Fox?

    Peter, thanks a million for the (quick) response...and some people wonder why HTF holds Fox Studios in such high regard. While this is off topic, I just want to say that we don't take for granted the fact that you take the time to communicate directly with us. Please tell your superior(s) that...

    300 Spartans Canceled by Fox?

    If this is true, this is very disappointing news indeed. Fox, if it's being cancelled or delayed, please show some courtesy (or whatever you wish to call it) and make an official announcement soon regarding this before we all have our hopes dashed at the last minute. Folks, let's keep our...

    New Cover Art: Sneakers, Narc, The Guru

    Jose, I'm not Patrick :) but I can answer your question regarding The 300 Spartans cover art. I just checked his site; click on Cover Gallery on the Thursday update (for instance), then Latest Cover Additions, and then click on the 10th page...1st cover displayed there.

    'The 300 Spartans'...Why is This Not on DVD?!

    RolandL, Thanks much for the information; let's hope it's true - and if so, let's hope Fox will be providing us with a respectable release (at least preserving the Cinemascope ratio and preferably anamorphic widescreen, with the stereo soundtrack of course). I have no reason to doubt that Fox...

    What as yet unreleased catalogue titles would u like to see in 2003?

    Just a few off the top of my head... Caltiki, the Immortal Monster(1959) The H Man(1958) (The above two would make an awesome B-movie double feature) Carried Away(1996) Cosey, I have to second Full Body Massage(1995) The Bad Seed(1956) The 300 Spartans(1962) and of course, The Fearless...

    'The 300 Spartans'...Why is This Not on DVD?!

    Well Scott, with a little luck hopefully we can at least satisfy your dad's desire, if not your Mom's :) Thomas T, although I realize The 300 Spartans probably won't be released anytime soon, my intent here is to plant the proverbial seed. Hopefully Fox or whomever might actually release this...

    'The 300 Spartans'...Why is This Not on DVD?!

    Let me state up front that if you haven't seen this highly entertaining "sword and sandal" epic, you definitely should if you get the chance (it's aired sometimes on the AMC channel.) It chronicles the historically true attempt by the Spartan King Leonidas and 300 of his personal...

    Songs you couldn't imagine your life without??

    One for me would definitely have to be 'You Light Up My Life' by Debbie Boone :wink: But seriously...I'd say 'Little Angel, Little Brother' by Lucinda Williams (an incredible talent - catch her live sometime...you won't regret it) I have to agree with Jeff Pryor by seconding 'Fade Into...

    Paul Verhoeven's Flesh + Blood

    Let me go on record by saying right now that I'd buy this entertaining action film on DVD in a heartbeat! Perfect candidate for an Anchor Bay release me thinks (along with...well, see below) :)

    Stereolab's Mary Hansen killed in bike accident

    Tom, Thanks for the info; I had not heard this and am very saddened by this news. I've been a fan of Stereolab and their unique sound for several years now. My condolences go out to her family, friends, and the remaining members of the group. John

    Jussi, As you've discovered, this film does indeed have a large number of fans. But 745 signatures?! While this is certainly encouraging, it'd be great if we could get a thousand or more signatures. Come on folks...if you've got any desire at all to see this unique vampire horror/comedy...
