Looks like there's a problem with SS Experiment Camp. 88 Films are dealing with it.

"FAULTY SS EXPERIMENT CAMP BLU-RAY NOTICE

It has been brought to our attention that SS Experiment Camp blu-ray which arrived in stock yesterday is faulty. If anyone already has their discs we will replace them ASAP.

Otherwise we’re on the case even now and will have an updated release date ASAP.

This is incredibly embarrassing and is the first time we have ever had this problem, please bare with this while we get it sorted.

Thank you.

The Team 88 Films"

Oh what's the problem and why is it embarrassing? Faulty discs happen all the time so what makes this particularly embarrassing?

Someone posted to their wall not long before that post that despite the uncut running time listed on their back, their copy just cut off and ended mid scene about 3 or 4 minutes before the film was supposed to end.

I agree though, faulty discs happen a lot and more often than not its the replicators fault before the actual label

Are they the ones that are easily recognised, because the title on the cover is 'SS Experiment Cam'?

Ah, now I understand your last post! No, it's not. There's been a manufacturing error and the film cuts off before the end.

From FaceBook:

"Just had confirmation that 35mm negative of the missing opening of Zombi Flesh Eaters 2 has been found along with the English soundtrack.

We'll keep you posted."

Every time 88 release a film the most asked question by a mile is. "Is it uncut?" This is asked more than any other question time and time again. Not "What extra's?" not "What's the picture quality?" but how uncut is the version being put out. This is because the British public, who have had to endure many years of censorship, have been burned too many times and to them, it is THE most important factor. Now, I guess that it must get a bit tiresome and an easy way around it is when they announce a title just say, "The full uncut version of..." and voila, 98 questions disappear from their facebook page.

The only problem would be if 88 are releasing a butchered version of a film, and then lie to their fans, like Bloodsucking Pharaohs of Pittsburg, in which to the inevitable question they replied "Yes" on their FB page when they were putting out the slaughtered R rated version instead. That tends to then piss people off if they have been told it is the full uncut version. Funny, that!

I always want an uncut version of a film even if I find the material questionable or repugnant to my moral code, ie, Cannibal Holocaust, Ferox, etc but I also understand that sometimes this is just not possible, like the Friday 13th films. (Although in this case I keep seeing Fan Made copies of uncut F/13 films and one day I might just have to have a look!)

In this particular case I believe the missing footage is sub-standard, dodgy, VHS quality and is in too bad a shape to add to the release. Fair enough, in my opinion but at least let the people who buy the releases and therefore pay their wages, know about this before they spend their hard earned so that they aren't left feeling Vipco-ed and ripped off. Although it is probably very difficult to sell a movie after saying, "Almost half the gore and FX cut out!"

88 should be upfront and honest with their fan base and say from the announcement what version they are putting out. Apparently this won't hurt their sales as horror fans only make up 5% of sales and the other 95% are from casual buyers in shops and Amazon. Also it will stop the legion of "Is it uncut" collectors cluttering up their Facebook page.
