Just been into HMV, and I got 'Attack on the Block" and 'Lemmy: The Movie' as 2 for £10, and also 'The Unborn' for £3.00

Two of these films I am expecting to enjoy, and one I am expecting to be trash (but it was cheap!)

Received my RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD PART 3 blu-ray hardbox this morning. On the plus side, it's unrated and widescreen. On the minus side. No main menu, so it automatically plays in German! (which I hate), and as already mentioned here, seemd to be an upconvert from a dvd. It looks no better than my UK and US discs.

Basket Case
 
2 Attachment(s)
Been watching the blu of Basket Case in all of its 16mm glory
Dread Central interview-
DC: With 16mm being what it is, why was it important to you to use those prints for this high-def release? The formats don’t really seem to naturally go together usually.

Henenlotter: “Oh, I know! But the reason we wanted to use the 16mm prints for the Blu-ray is because I was never happy with the way Basket Case looked, either in cinemas back when it was first released or on any of the DVD releases either. I always intended for the movie to be bright and colorful, but it never looked that way in any of the prints they struck because when you blow 16mm up like that, you lose so much. This is the very first time Basket Case really looks the way I had always wanted it to, and I couldn’t be happier with how the Blu-ray turned out.”

“The theatrical prints were always sloppy looking, and I know back then the distributor couldn’t afford to strike new prints so I was never happy with that version at all. See, I’m not a huge fan of night shoots because I always feel like those shots are just too dim and dark, and originally I had those scenes tinted with a blue to liven the feel up a bit. But when they made the prints, that tint and a whole lot of other things we did never made it over so I feel like the fans of Basket Case have been missing out on my real version of the movie over the years so hopefully they’ll love what we’ve done here.”

“I never in a million years imagined a movie like Basket Case would be presented in high-definition considering the kind of movie it is. And I’ll be honest; Basket Case was one of my first movies, and I had no idea what I was doing a lot of the time- I just made it to have some fun really so I’m definitely appreciative of all the kindnesses the fans have extended towards me and my films over the years. If you would have told me in 1982 that I’d be sitting here talking about this movie almost 30 years later, I would have laughed in your face.”

That's a beautiful Steelbook. I have the (portrait) UK Steelbook and would really like that landscape steely - is it the German release?

It's a great set and, for £30, you really got a bargain - I paid over £50 for mine.

I couldn't believe when I saw it listed at that price (Buy It Now). The standard 2 disc edition is going for around £80 at the moment.

Yes, it's a German Blu-ray release. Besides, it's pretty cheap at the moment - here's the link.

Psycho (Limited Quersteelbook) [Blu-ray]: Amazon.de: Anthony Perkins, Martin Balsam, Vera Miles, John Gavin, Janet Leigh, John McIntire, Alfred Hitchcock: DVD & Blu-ray

Blimey, I didn't think the standard one would fetch that kind of price. As I own a spare one, I may look towards eBay as a way of replenishing my bank account!

Ha, I beat you to it! As soon as I replied to your post, I had a look on eBay but, as the prices were so high, decided to have a look on Amazon.de and was amazed at how cheap it was there. Knowing how things like that sell out quickly, I bought one and then came here.

That makes three Psycho BDs plus a couple of DVDs!

I've just ordered the German Psycho Steelbook from Amazon.de, purely because it looks so cool as a landscape, rather than portrait, case. Also, as it only cost £15.11 (according to Amazon's conversion tool), it's relatively cheap - it cost less than my UK Steelbook.
