Kind of agree with this. Pranks is in no way a great film, but is more of a nostalgia trip for me, having not seen it in years (plus I'm a a bit of a Slasher freak).

The above reason, the fact that the artwork is pretty good, and the fact I try and support Synapse as much as I can with these type of releases = guaranteed purchase for me. :nod:

I'm betting that a lot of people will go in buying this one blind, and come out the other end a bit disappointed! ;)

It wasn't a blind buy - I saw it back in 2004 and thought it was crap and I hoped the BD would change my opinion of it. Sadly it didn't.

Like yourself, I want to support Synapse (and any cult label that takes a risk with these titles) and i'll certainly be picking up any blu's they release in the future (I'll definitely be ordering their upcoming release of THE IMAGE)

I knew it wouldn't be a blind buy for a Vipco veteran like yourself Pete! ;) :D

Yep, I'll also be getting their release of The Image. :nod:

I currently have the DVD, so will probably be putting that one up for sale/trade.

I think Synapse are also planning a BD of Twins of Evil this year too, so that will be an essential purchase when/if released.

:lol:


I've not seen THE IMAGE but I've heard good things. Throw the old dvd on e-bay, it goes for silly money these days. Sell it and use the money to live like a king!:D

I must get around to ordering VAMPIRE CIRCUS.

I've seen it go for around 40 on eBay before, however with the Blu now announced prices are down to around a tenner on Amazon marketplace! :ohwell:

It's a fantastic release (really nice transfer), but is Region A locked unfortunately.

That's a shame. :(


Region restrictions aren't a problem for me ;)

Nor me. ;)

I have a feeling any future Hammer releases will be region restricted, due to the varying territory-restricted rights issues.

Pete 1st May 2011 01:21 PM

I would imagine so.

I'm sure we'll see UK bd's at some point.

I'm going to try and make that my last for a while.

Man of Violence is a great little thriller. I only have the dvd, but its a well put together package.
