Nice you getting in the reviewing game BS?

Kyle 9th December 2009 01:48 PM

nah, i don't think im that good at reviewing but he said he would do me a screener as long as i let him know my thoughts on it so far, he still needs to do some final touches to it before he can release it

bizarre_eye@Cult Labs 9th December 2009 03:14 PM

It's the US Televista release mate.

Pete 9th December 2009 03:28 PM

Is it good quality?

Haven't seen it before mate, but as far as I am aware Televista are the only company to have released this film legitimately on DVD - even though it does look suspiciously grey market to me! :biggrin:

There are some reviews scattered around on the net with some stills which look okay. I'm anticipating above a Troma but below an AWE quality - about a Redemption, methinks! :pound:

I have been waiting on getting this for a few years now - just in case anyone else brought it out (I was hoping for a BCI SE before they liquidated... :(), but aside from some of the scathing reviews it gets, I'm really looking forward to this one arriving! :nod:

vincenzo 9th December 2009 03:48 PM

Deal of the week. Just picked up all 4 Anchor Bay coffin boxes (again) for a tenner. :dance:

Pete 9th December 2009 03:49 PM

Televista are a bootleg outfit i think.

Redemption quality isn't too bad - certainly better than troma.

I might pick up a copy myself.

Yeah they do look a bit suspect. Xploited Cinema used to sell a few of their titles (not that they released many :tongue1:) before they packed in.

Also, I think it's one of those releases that is teetering on the cliff edge of being OOP. There doesn't seem to be a lot of them about, and they're not too cheap either. I'd suggest getting one before it's too late... :eek: :eek: :eek: !

Pete 9th December 2009 03:58 PM

Yeah, knowing what amazon sellers are like i'll prboably end up having to pay 100 for it.

Apparently Televista are releasing Joe D'Amato's Pleasure Shop on 7th Avenue (soft version).

You can get it for about 12 on Amazon at the moment.

Televista are still going! :shocked: Thought they'd packed in. I know they released a series of these er... gems:

Pete 9th December 2009 04:09 PM

Well, its Jef Films who are releasing it but apparently they are just another name for Televista.

Daemonia 9th December 2009 05:31 PM

Watched the BD of Bram Stoker's Dracula the other night and it looked and sounded amazing. A top-notch transfer of a guilty pleasure. :)

DVD Trash 9th December 2009 05:41 PM

Watched this recently as well and it looked pretty good in Blu-Ray, a film with some really good moments but also some real bad acting from Keanu, but I also thought Winona Ryder was diabolical in this as well!

vipco 9th December 2009 05:44 PM

I picked up Night of the Living Dead BR disc today in GameStop for 11.99.

It's not a bad film at all. Maybe disappointing for a Coppola flick - but still well worth the watch - not least for Monica Bellucci. ;)

Out of curiosity what did you think of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein?

The Reaper Man@Cult Labs 9th December 2009 11:34 PM

I enjoyed that one as well Vince.

That's good to hear about BRAM STOKER'S DRACULA Dae,it's sitting on my to watch pile and I must admit,I'm a big fan of this film.
I thought Oldman made a cunning Count and Hopkins made a great Van Helsing.Perhaps he based his perf on Cushing's previous outings....
The way he kills vamps with zest!

Which label Vips?
Hopefully it was the Optimum disc,as the Network version is apparently awful!

vipco 10th December 2009 12:04 AM

Yeah mate, Optimum Home, but it aint great for extras, just a doc on George.
I picked the Hardgore release of this in Poundland and you got the B/W & Colourised prints plus extras for a quid.

Lands (fav Dead movie) next once I get HMV to order it in, but I think i'll skip Dairy.

They had the STARZ 'Dawn of the Dead' as well for 11.99 but there was no region on the cover. (I got ARROW's anyway)

Does anyone know if Last House on the Left remake is good PO,? as you get the Theatrical and Extended cut in the one set....... Im tempted.
A shop I go has it 4 for 30 BluRay's.

The Reaper Man@Cult Labs 10th December 2009 12:07 AM

LAST HOUSE remake on BR is great Vips.
A good film as well.As good as,if not better than Craven's original.

vipco 10th December 2009 12:25 AM

Thanks mate, you've never steered me wrong so far ,so i'll pick it up when im in town on Monday.

Can anyone recommend Dead Space, movie ways.?

I thought it was decent enough, if nothing really outstanding. The only downside is that they play up the costume melodrama side of things a bit too much. That is to say, not quite enough horror. Then again, what did we expect from Branagh, he is a Shakespearean actor, after all. ;)

Some nice set pieces though and the set design is terrific. Not sure about De Niro as the creature though, he never seemed very comfortable in the role. And even at the time, in interviews, De Niro didn't seem to quite grasp the concept of the story - it's a uniquely gothic/European story, and I think that was lost on him. Not that De Niro is stupid, but Americans have a totally different sensibility to Europeans and don't have a history and heritage like Europe does. Which does help in appreciating gothic horror IMO.

I already have the Argent and AWE discs but i wanted this one for Castellari's commentary.

Stephen@Cult Labs 11th December 2009 06:24 PM

Bought The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974) from HMV when I was in glasgow yesterday.Almost all the extras from the 3 disc dvd have been ported over (the poster gallery isn't there).The film looks the best it has ever looked and probably the best it ever will.It's definately not something you would use to show the superior quality of blu-ray and is pretty grainy but definately worth buying if you're a fan.

The Reaper Man@Cult Labs 11th December 2009 07:58 PM

I got that back in October from HMV Steve,I think it was an exclusive back then....
So the super-transfer doesn't detract from the 'grittiness' of the film then?

Stephen@Cult Labs 11th December 2009 08:11 PM

I take it you haven't got around to watching it then Reaper? One online review I saw said it looked like shit.They meant it in a good way though.Like I said,if you want to impress someone with the quality of blu-ray,this isn't the disc to do it with,but as a true representation of how the film is supposed to look,you can't fault it.

The Reaper Man@Cult Labs 11th December 2009 08:17 PM

Nah,I ain't got round to it mate....soon....:biggrin:

pedromonkey 12th December 2009 12:35 AM

as a christmas pressie from my dear old ma, ive just ordered the ultimate fly collection from play.com for 14.99 (rrp 69.99) woohooo

The Reaper Man@Cult Labs 12th December 2009 07:50 AM

If like me you love A CLOCKWORK ORANGE,get it!
The best it has ever looked and sounded.Superb!

Stephen@Cult Labs 12th December 2009 09:15 AM

Yeah i've got A Clockwork Orange.One of my favourite films and looks incredible on blu-ray.

Marc Morris 12th December 2009 12:15 PM

Ted Kotcheff's Wake in Fright (aka Outback, 1971). Australian Blu-ray.
