    No, that's a comparison with the old release. The new Severin release looks pretty much exactly like the Indicator (Severin's is just a hair warmer/more natural whites and frame shifts a hair down from the Indicator) - there's a comparison over at Mondo-Digital with the new disc (and old disc): http://mondo-digital.com/beastmust.html

    Thanks, MorallySound. I couldn't imagine they could release something so terrible looking when another label put out a really nice looking version at the same time.

    My copies of Demonia and Satan's Slave arrived last week, and I was in the mood for something off the beaten path, so I sat down with Satan's Slave last night. But Satan's Slave was not quite as weird as I had expected - it plays very much like a supernatural western horror movie (and not a well-executed one at that), with some Islamic morality slapped on. The premise involves a father and his two young adult children coming to turns with the loss of the mother in the family. Each of the three finds comfort in ungodly things such as economical success, western horror movies, and western disco music, but soon, the family is beset by nightly apparitions. There are some good moments, with my favourite one being a shaman attempting to exorcise the evil plaguing the family, only to find himself the target of shards of glass flying through the air. He repeatedly dodges them, and they come at him again like homing missiles. The effect is not even badly done. The apparitions look quite spooky with their dirty burial clothes and pallid skin. The older male has a decidedly odd appearance - like some Indonesian Reggie Nalder - and the makeup really exploits this. Unfortunately, the female apparition looks totally goofy up close, with awkward eye appliances and and apparently only enough pasty makeup for her face, leaving her arms a healthy tan colour. The scares are inexpertly timed, unfortunately. The first appearance of the female ghost echoes the window scene in Salem's Lot. In Salem's Lot, creepy music builds and a flying figure slowly comes into view in the mists. Here, the ghost woman is just there in the window, plainly visible from the get-go. Not even a piercing blare of music to jolt us. It's as if the makers of Satan's Slave were familiar with the Salem's Lot scene but did not understand the technicality of why it was so scary. Still, even with the technically missed opportunities, the unsophisticated narrative, and the ham-fisted religious message, I found Satan's Slave diverting enough. Still, in terms of 80's Asian folklore horror, give me the craziness of The Witch with the Flying Head any day. :D

    I watched 'Revenge of the living dead girls' on Saturday. I was looking forward to this alot as I'd heard good things and it was gloriously gory. Got to say I was very disappointed. The film was a mess, there are plot holes galore, terrible acting and the effects are not that gory and not very well done. I liked the twist end, that explained a few things but then opened up more questions!!!. Also the print was pretty poor, I know it can be down to available but it wasn't great with lots of debris and lots of washed out scenes.

    That's disappointing to hear of poor print quality. Does anyone know if the Le Chat Qui Fume release uses a different source?

    For those who don't care about the slipcover, you can order the Demonia blu-ray from DeepDiscount for $18.69 with coupon code ENJOY. Not a bad price, considering the street date is tomorrow.
