Default CULT LABS LABEL OF 2018!

[Time people!
Let's be 'avin you!

It's time to vote for your favourite label of the year!
Not an easy decision by any means,as we've been spoiled again!

Now,the votes remain anonymous,so if you voted for Shameless or Black House,no one will know!

If you're loud and proud,tell us what your favourite releases were throughout 2018 and why!!!


BTW-You can choose more than one.
Be interesting to see which label gets the most!

Eureka for me purely because of The Old Dark House.

Had i been buying blu's or if they'd stuck with dual format i'd have gone with Indicator - especially their Night of the Demon. Which i bought anyway)

A quick mention too for those recent Carpenter reissues from Studio Canal - Class!

If i could like Reaper's OP i would. But i can't. Crappy forum!

For me it has to be Indicator/Powerhouse. The sheer quality of the overall packaging and attention to detail in extra features. Beautiful box sets like the William Castle Box Set 1 and the ever so terrific Night of the Demon were quality packages all the way through. I'm still navigating some of the special features on Night of the Demon. Indicator have truly developed into the sort of independent Blu-Ray media (retail) business that delivers quality, and never lacks on it's ambition to deliver 100% solid gold entertainment with style. Can't wait for 2019, and another Hammer Box Set, fingers crossed.

Hopefully someone at Warner Bros. Entertainment will give Powerhouse the opportunity to license out some Warner titles in the near future. Warner's wouldn't be disappointed at all with the outcome.

Indicator knocked it out of the park (and probably out of the solar system) with Night of the Demon...

...honourable mentions for Arrow, Second Sight, Eureka and Nucleus in UK, and Vinegar Syndrome, Kino and Mondo Macabro in US.

Powerhouse by a country mile for me too.

Night of the Demon coupled with Hammer and William Castle sets, plus some fantastic stand-alone releases like The Collector, Gumshoe, and Ministry of Fear.

Honourable mention goes to Second Sight for fantastic releases of Xtro and The Changeling this year, with a no doubt sterling release of When A Stranger Calls to follow later this month. I'm really looking forward to their release of Next of Kin in Feb too.

Arrow are always strong and continue to put out some great releases; The Addiction and Candyman being a couple of the highlights for me this year.

I haven't really bought nearly as many titles this year. However, the ones that I have bought have all been quality releases.
