Not really a fan of the new art on the case. Should've used that on the slip instead.

Getting jealous now. My Hell Night is arriving by 31st according to Amazon. It really is one of the best 80s slashers. The carpet scene is just incredible.

Aside from this, I dont know anything about these recent announcements. Are they any good?

Saw the trailer for Boys Next Door, looks pretty good.

Suburbia reminds me of one of Arrows recent releases, Over The Edge. What I thought of Over The Edge was that it was a slow build up and the finale (Where all hell breaks loose) didn't live up to the expectations.

So does Suburbia have more action throughout the film (or is it mostly talking)

101 Films presents Penelope Spheeris' searing drama Suburbia (1983), title 021 on the 101 Films Black Label. Starring real-life punks rather than trained actors, and featuring live performances from punk bands D.I., T.S.O.L. and the Vandals, Suburbia is an authentic and compassionate study of the Los Angeles punk rock scene in the early 1980s, and a bleak indictment of the American suburban experiment.

Evan and his younger brother leave their broken home in an attempt to escape their alcoholic mother. They fall in with "The Rejected" (aka T.R.), a group of punks who live as squatters in an abandoned shack by the side of the highway. With the T.R.s, the boys find a new family. But their new family will be tested when they become the target of "Citizens Against Crime," a group of unhappy suburbanites.

BRAND NEW EXTRAS
• Interview with director Penelope Spheeris
• Limited edition booklet: Includes Punks in Suburbia by John Towlson and Before Suburbia: Gangs on Film by Barry Forshaw

ADDITIONAL EXTRAS

101 Films presents The Boys Next Door (1985), a violent and disturbing crime thriller from director Penelope Spheeris (The Decline of Western Civilisation) and screenwriters Glen Morgan & James Wong (Final Destination, The X-Files).

Bo Richards (Charlie Sheen) has trouble talking to girls. Roy Alston (Maxwell Caulfield) is filled with an uncontrollable rage. On the weekend of their high-school graduation, the two suburban outcasts head for Los Angeles and embark on a violent murder spree that shocks the nation. But these young men are neither hardened criminals or foaming-at-the-mouth maniacs. They are simply The Boys Next Door.

Suburbia is cut by 10 seconds for animal cruelty if that's a deciding factor for anybody.

Trashforcash 28th July 2021 11:09 AM

Love the extras on Hell Night, but I cant say I'm happy with the print. It's the same grainy print as my Noche Infernal spanish blu ray with blue lines down the screen, hazy look, spots, scratches etc. It honestly looks like it hasn't been cleaned up one bit.

Overall, I wouldnt recommend anyone bother with the 101 films Hell Night if you are thinking about upgrading a preexisting copy of the movie. The extras are great, and it's an amazing film if you've not seen it, but it still looks like garbage and isnt an upgrade of any version out there in the international market. Also, I know I'm going to get pelters for this, but the 101 mini book on the movie is in that same mini font/all over the place style as Spookies. Overall 10/10 if youve never seen it, or 6/10 if you already have it.

Does anyone know why Hell Night looks so absolutely terrible in every release? It's not exactly obscure. My guess is that one company remastered it (badly) and everyone else is sub-licencing the print.

Wouldn't surprise me if supplies of the limited edition were running low everywhere now.

101 have announced a 'Best of the summer sale' weekend sale.

https://101-films-store.com/collecti...eid=2d567ca266

I might as well ask.

Are Runaway and Space Hunter any good? I do seem to recall a few bought Runaway but nobody has actually said if they liked it.

Susan Foreman 24th September 2021 01:22 PM

I seem to remember (from a television screening, many years ago) that 'Runaway' is a very entertaining science fiction film

nosferatu42 24th September 2021 02:39 PM

I haven't got round to watching Runaway since i bought it recently but I also saw it on TV a few times growing up and enjoyed it.

I rewatched Spacehunter a few years ago and really enjoyed it again, I think it's underrated.

I've bought both. Haven't watched them since purchasing but they are two films I thoroughly enjoyed when I was growing up.

One to pass on for me. When i saw the email i thought why? It's a found footage thing, not exactly demanding of a blu-ray release at eighteen quid.

The dvd usually can be found for a quid (Or less)

I actually enjoyed it, was impressed with what they were able to achieve at the time for that budget.

But yeah, not exactly something that's going to look better on blu ray.

In 2022 101 Films is bringing the American Genre Film Archive (AGFA) to the UK.

Founded in 2009, AGFA exists to preserve the legacy of genre movies, and from January some of the weirdest and wildest films ever committed to celluloid will be released on Blu-ray on this side of the Atlantic for the first time.

The first releases in the range will be the sleazy and terrifying EFFECTS (1980) and exploitation legend Renee Harmon’s LADY STREET FIGHTER (1981), both released on 10th January 2022.

AGFA exists to preserve the legacy of genre movies, and from January some of the weirdest and wildest films ever committed to celluloid will be released on Blu-ray and digital on this side of the Atlantic for the first time"


One of the first releases in the range will be the sleazy and terrifying 'EFFECTS' (1980) - pre-order available from 101 Films direct - £15:00

Release date: January 10

"Part of the American Genre Film Archive range. The initial run comes with Limited Edition 'O-ring' packaging.

Cobbled together with loose change by George Romero's friends, EFFECTS is a mesmerizing D.I.Y. frightmare that no one talks about, but everyone should. A group of coked-up filmmakers -- including Tom "DAWN OF THE DEAD" Savini, Joe "DAY OF THE DEAD" Pilato, and John "TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE: THE MOVIE" Harrison -- gather in Pittsburgh to make a slasher. As filming begins and "accidents" happen, it's clear that something isn't right. EFFECTS is a meta-enhanced takedown on the philosophy of horror that doubles as a sleazy and terrifying movie on its own."


Special features:
  • 4K scan from the only 35mm theatrical print in existence!
  • Archival commentary track with John Harrison, Dusty Nelson, and Pasquale Buba
  • UBU short film
  • BEASTIE short film
  • AFTER EFFECTS documentary with optional commentary track
  • Liner notes by Joseph A. Ziemba of AGFA and Bleeding Skull!

Release date: January 10

"Part of the American Genre Film Archive range. The initial run comes with Limited Edition 'O-ring' packaging.

She makes the bad guys bleed! Written and produced by exploitation demigod Renee Harmon (FROZEN SCREAM) and directed by the legendary James Bryan (DON’T GO IN THE WOODS), this is the story of Linda (Harmon), a tough-as-nails karate cop on the trail of the ruthless scumbags who murdered her twin sister! From the outrageous fight scenes to Harmon’s incredible outfits, LADY STREET FIGHTER is a joyous blast of no-holds-barred chaos from one of the most important lady filmmakers in genre history. Don’t miss the special appearance by Trace Carradine, the most elusive Carradine brother of all!"


Special features:
  • 2K scan from the only surviving 35mm theatrical print!
  • Commentary track with director James Bryan and the AGFA team
  • Street fightin’ trailers from the AGFA vaults

I saw this, not sure how well these will sell in the UK, they're very niche and have been available to buy from Vinegar Syndrome for some time. It's good though, to see the variety on the UK shelves, I wonder if we'll get Bat Pussy or The Zodiac Killer

Must admit i have no interest in either title.

Rob4 18th November 2021 03:17 PM

I have Effects but not watched it. I was going to get The Zodiac Killer in the next sale but will have to hold off now. I'm also a bit surprised as I expect most of these will need submitting to the BBFC for their usual extortionate fee. As Justin says they are very niche so I can't see them selling many.

Graveyard 18th November 2021 03:55 PM

If they put the The Sword and The Claw I will buy it.

TBH, would they do worse than something like Tammy And The T-Rex (For example)

Vinegar Syndrome are titles that are ordered via specialist websites whereas these can be got from places like HMV, Amazon...etc.

Saw the trailers, Effects interests me but not sure about Lady Street Fighter but I'm hoping that they change the cover art. They are not exactly the best in my opinion.
