That artwork is very similar to the original.
That artwork is meh.
Waiting patiently for THE TOMB.
Dinosaur Island is DVD only? Really Freddy? And at a premium too?
I'd forgotten about this thread, otherwise I would have been more prone to post Retromedia's other recent release:
The Ape Man / Doomed to Die - Monstrous Double Feature
Reportedly The Ape Man looks rather good, especially compared to previous DVD releases, while Doomed to Die looks about the same as other PD DVD's. But that's the way these seem to go. He matches up a new good transfer with an old lackluster own.
I've noticed after about 6 months Retromedia's prices on Amazon drop two bucks so I let 'em sit in my cart until they drop.
Now available at https://makeflix.com/collections/retromedia which seems to be J.R. Bookwalter's new site after shutting down Tempe's store.
A couple of new titles Retromedia titles available from Makeflix:
Haunting Fear: https://makeflix.com/products/haunting-fear
Also Robot Ninja widescreen for the first time on Blu-ray.
Also also 88 Films' Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers release with Linnea Quigler’s Horror Workoout which is apparently OOP: https://makeflix.com/collections/blu-ray/products/hollywood-chainsaw-hookers-region-b-import
And for February you can throw in a free DVD "Disc & Artwork Only" from this list: https://makeflix.com/collections/nocasediscs
(including another Brinke Stevens disc Something to Scream About.)
Just be sure to select the Disc & Artwork Only option in the pull down. At least I hope so. It was still part of the total so hopefully you get a refund or something. I'll find out I guess after they process my order.
Kinda spaced on this. It's today at 4PM EST. I watched Haunting Fear last night for the first time and enjoyed it so I'll check this out.
Join Makeflix for our first-ever Virtual Launch Party celebrating the Blu-ray release of the 1990 Edgar Allan Poe-inspired horror movie HAUNTING FEAR!

I am thinking of picking up Haunting Fear - figured I should pick another blu up for free shipping. I have never seen Evil Toons or The Phantom Empire - which one would you guys recommend for good tongue in cheek B movie cheese?
I like both, but if I had to choose... Evil Toons. B movie cheese galore.
I still have my original animation cell from Evil Toons signed by Fred somewhere around here.
Fred Olen Ray announced this week via his Facebook page that Jack-O is coming to Blu-ray, and since this was originally edited on video they’ve gone and scanned the original camera negatives and conformed it to the video to make a true HD master:
From Fred’s post: “JACK-O! Never say never. We finally decided to do what we always said we'd never do, and that is to transfer the original 16mm Camera Negatives to 2K HD and conform the new material to the original film. And the results are spectacular!”
Now available on MakeFlix, TEENAGE EXORCIST:
Also ships for free when paired with the new Brinke Stevens signed Blu-ray edition of Shock Cinema Collection. Just sayin'.
^^ I ordered it earlier. I saw where it was coming last week and already had a listing on there, but you couldn't yet order it.
I snagged Shock Cinema Collection when it first came out, but picked up Route 66: Lizard's Leg and Owlet's Wing this time to get free shipping. I've been meaning to grab that one for a while...and it looks like it's perhaps getting hard to find now?
Yeah, they teased Stevens signing a mystery title some time ago so I held out on Shock Cinema to pair it with the eventual Retromedia release. I forgot my Lizard's Leg/Owlet's Wing is still sealed. I need to break that out this October!
A lot of Retromedia titles seems to go "out of stock" for quite awhile but then Ray manages to "find" some more to send MakeFlix. Since none of these titles are licensed I'm guessing Ray will continue to print up some more until his dying day. MakeFlix has them at their lowest price after 6 months to a year, so basically any time is a good time to buy one after that. No benefit to hold out.
Now I throw 'em in when I need to hit free S&H. I was tempted to pickup Monster Maker / King of the Zombies this time but I decided to save it for a wild card release I want to pad to get free S&H.
Or wait until Friday apparently?
Makeflix says they've got "less than 100 left" of the signed editions of Teenage Exorcist so maybe don't wait until Friday.
They posted on Facebook 4 hours ago that it's down to "less than 40". So make it quick if anyone still wants one!
Edit: Actually, it looks like the "signed" edition may already have sold out, since it's not in the listing anymore.
Good thing I got my order in last night!
I was able to get my order in earlier today. I've met Brinke Stevens on 4 different occasions. She was a staple at the San Diego Comic Con for a while. She was always very cordial and posed for free pictures. My favorite pic with her was at the 96 Comic Con where she actually held my one year old daughter in her arms for the pose.
She seems like a really cool person in the Interviews I've seen (and read) about her. I already have her autograph on a couple other things, but no harm in adding more!
Teenage Exorcist shipped this morning.
