Re: Echo Bridge to Re-Release Full Moon Titles

Is Subspecies any good? 1 and 2 are streaming on netflix and I love some vamps but it looked too low rent and I didn't want to ruin one of my few free Friday nights with a piece of drek.

I'm such a chicken when it comes to new stuff nowadays. Used to be I'd watch crap till 3 am and love it. Now with a kid...forget about it. I try to stick to only "sure" home runs but damn it has narrowed my viewing.

Re: Echo Bridge to Re-Release Full Moon Titles

nope, just the movies, in so-so transfers that seem to be stretched to fill widescreen TVs

Alright, thanks. I'll just keep all of my original sets. I was looking forward to slimming them down, though.

If they're stretched then that sucks. Pass.

Re: Echo Bridge to Re-Release Full Moon Titles

Ugh. The review over at Amazon says that Trancers is using the same "dubbed from laserdisc" transfer that the old DVD had.

In 2010? Really?


I wasn't expecting much, but given how terrible the original DVD was, I was assuming this would at least be a minor upgrade. Apparently not.

Re: Echo Bridge to Re-Release Full Moon Titles

I'm STILL waiting for my copy of the Subspecies 3- pack. Bought it from Amazon, before the release day.I wrote them the other day, now it looks like it carries a 4-7 week shipping delay.
UPDATE- They just shipped it out today.

Re: Echo Bridge to Re-Release Full Moon Titles

Does anyone have this Subspecies Release?

http://www.amazon.com/Subspecies-Com...8904808&sr=8-1

I was curious about the quality since it's about half the price of what Full Moon normally charges for their set.

Not sure if you know, or care, but Full Moon put out a restored version of the first film that looks a lot better than before. They had some youtube video with a side by side.

Re: Echo Bridge to Re-Release Full Moon Titles

The Echo Bridge release possibly has the restored version, they did release the restored version of the first Puppet Master. As to comparing it to the Full Moon set, note that the EB release only has the first 3 movies and I'm pretty sure it does not have any special features. If it were me, I'd be more likely to get this release by New Video Group which has all the same movies as the Full Moon set and is possibly the same discs (at least that's what people say about their Puppet Master set) and is only 16.99.

EDIT: I just found a review of the New Video Group set that even states that "This new set seems to be an exact copy down to the bonus features"

EDIT AGAIN: D'oh, I just realized this was the set you were asking about :P I assumed it was the Echo Bridge set since this is the Echo Bridge thread.

I do know about it. I wanted to pick it up on Blu-Ray but I heard a lot of mixed reviews about it.

Sorry for the confusion

Didn't want to start a new thread just to ask a question, so I was looking for one that was close enough.

Thank you both for the input though. I might have to pick up this new New Video Group set soon.

Re: Echo Bridge to Re-Release Full Moon Titles

Then that wouldn't be the whole collection if it's 1-4. They have something like 9 or 10 of them.

You are correct. Wal-Mart has 2 different "Puppet Masters" 3-packs that alternate between the $5 dump bin and $10 in price. 1 includes the first 3 and the second included parts 4-6.
