But do they have an official website? I can't find any info about them. Even on the DVD of Silent Scream, nothing.

Re: Scorpion Releasing (new horror/cult label)

looking over their releases, seems more eclectic than just horror. Nice to see GREASER'S PALACE getting a reissue, didn't want pay king's ransom for the OOP DVD. VOYAGER is one that's been on my wish list for awhile, so thats good.

I bought Silent Scream on release day, it was ok, nothing special.
It was neat to see Jody's girlfriend from Soap as the lead character.
That's what I was thinking of during most of the movie.
And a older Lilly Munster, who was hard to recognize.

This is being released by Shout! on 10/5 as part of a double feature with Twin Dead. Unfortunately, it does not look like it is getting a blu release like the other recent Corman discs have.

Watched Doctor Death recently. Great tongue in cheek drive-in horror film and the production quality on the disc was stellar. I hope these guys are around for a long, long time.

Looking forward to Nickel Mountain- a film I was just thinking about and was certain would never, ever get released on DVD.

I'll be getting this for The Evil, but Twice Dead looks pretty corny.

Re: Scorpion Releasing (new horror/cult label)

Totally forgot that this DVD was released last month, even though I'd been waiting for it for so long:



Documentary with Woody Strode, Muhammed Ali, music by James Brown, Aretha Franklin. Can't go wrong with that.

Only extra is an audio commentary by the director Jeff Kanew

So far can't find a single review for this title. Whitey still stomping his foot down on the exposure of the release?

Oh yes, and another that slipped through the cracks finally is Robert Downey Sr's "Greaser's Palace", an excellent double biller with "El Topo" if you ever want to schedule one.

Greaser's Palace is a great, surreal movie. I'm glad that it's been re-released.

You can look here for New & Coming Soon releases.

As for Titles Announced:
American Nightmare (1983)
Day After Halloween (1978)
Double Exposure (1983)
Fantasist (1989)
Human Experiments (1980)
Incubus (1982)
Mark of Cain / Thrill Kill [Double Feature]
Satan's Slave (1976)
Survivor, The (1980)
Whispers

Each film has its own page which lists the purported bonus features. I'm particularly interested in The Survivor, an example:


Anyone, feel free to chime in when you learn of these films' release dates.

So, who's looking forward to what?
Scorpion's Katarina vs. Code Red's Maria: preferences?

I've only seen Maria's shtick on Haunted so far, but I find Katarina's accent much more pleasant to listen to.

Only Maria title I've bought is Night of the Demon (2nd pressing with the hilarious reversible cover). I'm glad I only rented Haunted because... *phew* I usually champion the unearthing of obscure films, but sometimes a film comes along that makes me think "maybe this should've remained obscure".
