There was a press release from them today wasn't there saying the Spookies limited edition had almost sold out.

That didn't last very long.

Keep thinking about the Anthrax slasher. Is there a booklet with it?

Nope just the disc in the box, it's part of their normal range so nothing fancy.

Seems a bit odd maybe they think Hell Night might have more of an appeal and sell more copies.

Did you watch the Theatrical version yet? The sex scene in the pool house shows the original framing, they had to zoom in slightly to avoid any male nudity, this remaster is the first time it's been framed in full and is therefore the only 'uncut' version of the movie released so far.
Yeah, it definitely is open matte but it's really noticeable. I haven't watched the film again yet, just been dipping in and out of the 2 cuts. Yeah, I heard about that zoom. They're fine with the female nudity but show a dude and they lose their shit. I remember Ferman saying "they cut the sex and we cut the violence". Also, I'd like to see more TV versions as an extra. I'd love The Last Boy Scout cos it was hilarious. But the holy grail for me would be the complete TV cut of Scarface. I remember it was on UK Gold back in the 90's and it was fascinating and horrifying at the same time. The Monster Squad I'd like too. Channel 5 showed it and even with the padding out it was still under 70 minutes.

I have the TV cut off Mallrats to get around to at some point as well. I like having them included as an extra more and more these days, a lot of times they are the first time we got to see a film so it has a nostalgic value. Other times it's just a glimpse into the American TV network mentality.

It got to a point in my early teens when I became more savvy and I noticed in the TV Times film section it would note 'edited for tv' and I'd give it a skip. It only seemed to be ITV that would do it, but they'd be showing something not really suitable for kids at 6pm on a Saturday lol.
