Has Anchor Bay's Drive-In Double Features been delayed?

I was wondering if these have been delayed? I can't seem to find any reviews or anything for them

NO they are not. I got them in this weekend to put out for sale on Tuesday. I seem to remember at total of 4 or 5 different one tonight at my Borders.

I've got two of them in my hands, so I don't think they've been delayed. Reviews will probably be slow in coming as the disks are just a re-packaging of already exisiting DVDs.

Which ones did you get and how are they?

Are these 2-Disc re-issues (Like the Argento & Fulci collections) or are the single disc?

Single disk....must be double-sided but I haven't opened either one yet.

I picked up SHOCK / POSSESSION, both of which I've already seen and found really interesting (though I'm sure others can go on for hours about how each is crap) and BLADE IN THE DARK and MACABRE, neither of which I've seen (and I'm hoping that I won't some day be going on for hours about how each is crap).

From the listings on the back, all the extras from the original stand alone disks have been ported over to these new releases, which is what makes me think that they are two-sided.

Oh, all right, I'll just open one up. Hold on! *tears off shrinkwrap* Yup, it's a two sided disk. The insert is now a four page gatefold, so all of that info/art for both disks is there as well. If I remember correctly, though, the old two-sided inserts were printed on stiff board and these are printed on magazine-type paper.

So, there you go!
