Default Films from the US of A!

This recommendations section of the site is heaving with films we'd love to put out but it's a slow process tracking down rights. Cannes is coming up though and that would offer a potential chance to start looking at films from the US of A because the idea was never to exclusively release Italian product - it was just a good place to start and as time goes on we need to look elsewhere to keep the quality and interest up. I certainly can recall many a good video renter from the 80s I'd love to see again - like a pile of those Charles Band Empire Pictures movies right through to little obscurities like The Video Dead.

Anyone out there got some forgotten US classics they'd like to see again - I'm thinking mainly from the 70s and 80s - everything seemed to turn to shit from the 90s onwards but then I'm a grumbly old git!

How about the cheesy but irresistable Slaughter High.

I'd love to see a good release of Tibor Takacs' 1987 horror THE GATE! Starring a young Stephen Dorff and packed with brilliant 80's stop motion effects, the old R2 release looks like a vhs transfer. I've got a European copy but it's got non removeable subs. Kinda mainstream for Shameless, but I love it.

See this is what I mean! I've been racking my brain trying to picture my old video collection and the old stores I used to frequent and those two had slipped off my radar - Slaughter High - Vestron - maroon box!

Scary!

Entertainment in Video - nasty little sleeve!

This was entertaining but not seen it in years - I remember it was uber-goopy rather than scary - had a few moments of tension though. Anyone revisited this one of late?

Any Jeff Leiberman movie too, like Blue Sunshine, Squirm or Just Before Dawn? I don't think any of them are out over here, and the Shriek Show SE DVD of Just Before Dawn has come under criticism for being a cut version. Or hell, what about Pumpkinhead, or is that owned by a major?

It looks like it was done by the guy who did those Palace releases, like Evil Dead 2, Creepers, Hills Have Eyes and Edge of Sanity.

I think Pumpkinhead rights are with Contender - I'm pretty sure it's sold all the copies it ever will. Right little timewarp this thread!

I still have the old Vestron vid of Slaughter High. Cut alas (32 secs) but would easily fly through the BBFC now.
