I'm still thinking that Covid might have had an effect on releases and I wouldn't be surprised if a more October appropriate release schedule turns up in November. I was surprised that Indicator's release of Dracula (1979) didn't turn up in October - I can't help feeling that it might also be experiencing a delay due to Covid.

There have been others speculating about Covid delays taking a toll on release schedules with at least one person suggesting they do interviews via Zoom for the extras to speed up releases but I can't see either Arrow or Indicator settling for that as a compromise.

I still love Arrow, and I am that 80's Fulci/Argento/Italian horror fan.

Both arrow & 88 have done brilliantly getting loads out on general release, but arrow's recent tip towards loads of Japanese obscurities & universal titles (pitch black, 12 Monkeys, Fear & Loathing) seems a bit odd to me. Guarentee Tremors will be on the agenda surely? I don't think IB & WOWS warrent another release just yet, but who knows?

Waiting for someone to do a few more 80's classics (Halloween the tv cut? Body Parts?), but it's not the end of the world if they announce some oddities. I've got so much to watch anyway it's crazy!

Well I think this will go one of two ways for Arrow.

1. Within 10 yrs Arrow will become the only physical media label with all new releases coming out as arrow editions. I'm sure HMV wont survive Covid, but in my local branch the arrow section is already as big as all the other blu ray sections combined.

Or 2. Obscure titles, recent mainstream releases and indy pickups sees fans alienated, sales plummeting and the label folds.

Which will it be? It's going to be kind of like Highlander-there can be only one. 88,101,indicator etc are all going to have to metaphorically chop each others heads off until there can be only one.

What do you think? Or have I gone mad?

Just going a bit off track. I think with Tremors it's not up for licensing. While it's not Jurassic park it still seems worth more for them to keep for themselves or at least charge lots more for licensing. Know 88 films got told no by universal in the past.
