I just tested it out to see what you are talking about. It didn't give me an extra carriage return, but extra line spacing. I clicked on the source button and it allowed me to paste without applying any formatting that messed it up. Give that a shot and see if it fixes your situation.

You two rock, thanks.

And I retroactively apologize to the forum for the probably dozen or more challenge lists with the extra spacing over the last year or two or whenever the software changed.

I hope I'm wrong.
Itís not great, but the nostalgia in my wants to save the box somewhere.

This "Hatchet for a Honeymoon" tale is just as dull and inept as his films from the 1970s. Having finished the Andy Milligan box set, one of the most painful, patience testing experiences I have ever had,the bottom line is Milligan just had no talent . 3/10
Blood (1973) - Mercifully, my last watch in the Milligan dungeon box set from Severin.2/10

I am still kicking myself for shelling out 140 bucks for this crap. I hope i can resell it.
I don't recall a single person ever praising that set, just constant buyer's remorse. I will give 'The Ghastly Ones' book from the bundle praise though. It's actually a great read, and you don't have to be a fan of his films to enjoy it.

BTW, any redeeming qualities for the Garagehouse release of Weirdo?

I'll admit to liking some Adamson films. Granted, I've only got through a quarter or so of the set, but they weren't unbearable. I have no doubt the folk set will be phenomenal. The nun set has Joe D'Amato and Bruno Mattei, so how can you possibly go wrong there? Pre-ordered!

The documentary on Shudder about Al Adamson's life and ghastly death is much more interesting than any of his films.

[QUOTE=Spiderbite;13991709]
I shelled out for the folk horror set too. The kicker was listening to the below podcast. Stay far away if you don't want to pull the trigger because listening to it may cause you to do just that...like it did me. I know the podcast is self-promotion for Severin but the descriptions and in-depth nature of this set really makes me want to delve into it. I will probably save the whole set for Halloween 2022 to take it all in.

https://open.spotify.com/episode/17r...e271cc38184dbf

Same here. I bought the set after listening to the podcast.

Has anyone gone thru the subset films and seen all the checklist items they cover? Will likely barely finish the checklist and can’t afford to watch too many things just for one item. I’ll do it myself at work this week, just didn’t want to re-invent the wheel if any of you had already done the work.

I haven't seen the mash-up cereal yet, but I saw the regular versions in Wal-Mart last week and saw that they have a download link where you can get Chocula and the gang singing The Monster Mash - I would've bought it if it had been an old-school cut-out record printed on the box (even though I've never really been a fan of any of the Monster cereals).

One nice thing about the daily soap opera pacing is that itís easy to start up watching up a long layoff, and quickly get caught back up with everything going on

I've had this set for several years now. Have only watched 126 episodes... I'll try to get a few eps in myself this year.

^Took me just over 2 years to finish. I wasn't watching any other television at the time.

If anyone missed that deadline (like me) I just had success using QUEENPINS for a free month trial. About to check out A Quiet Place Part II since it meets today's theme, and to see if it's worthy of a UHD purchase.

I posted this in the "Streaming" section, but I figure it has a better chance of being seen (and replied to) here: does Shudder really only have stereo (or mono) audio? If so, that's really disappointing and a deal-breaker for me. Too bad because they have a number of exclusives that I wanted to see. But I'll just explore alternatives rather than watch something with a crippled audio track.

I might check out the 30 day trial on Paramount+. I have a vested interest in checking out A Quiet Place Part II. It was filmed where I live. Even in the trailer, the twin bridges are the Grand Island bridges.

I got The Ghastly Ones from Hamilton last year. It’s heavy enough to stop an Ox in his tracks.

I had a truly strange day today. I took the bus home from work, and a 40 minute commute ended up taking close to 2 hours. The bus driver who drives this route every day, took a detour and got us hopelessly lost on the back roads. I did watch Last Ones Out for the ride home. Has anyone had their appendix out? The Vanilla Ice look alike has his appendix out on a pool table, and the doctor used a broken bottle to do the incision. The five minute surgery was happening while the ‘surgical team’ was battling zombies. This was the most believable part of the plot.

Yeah. I have been watching it on and off for years and I just finished episode #566 today. It is a beast of a show but I love it.

I try to watch at least a disc a month but like you said, it is hard to stick with it with so much else out there.

Rough start to the challenge for me. I was helping out a friend last night, so only got one in and fell asleep in movie 2. Then today, it rained like crazy, enough to flood the area around where I work.

Given the fact that I've had my new car for exactly 8 days, I didn't want to risk anything. I finally left a little after 7. I had some seriously close calls where I thought there was a really good chance my car would take in water. Luckily, my car and I made it home in one piece around 8.

Then the nearby plug I use to charge my car wasn't working! I spent a lot of time trying to get it working before deciding to try the far outlet in the garage. Luckily, the charger was just barely long enough to reach.

Needless to say, a very late start. I went back and finished the movie I didn't make it through last night. Number two is on. Hoping to squeeze in one more before sleep. We'll see.

As for the script, I don't think it's nearly as clever as Damon Lindelof & Jason Blum think it is.
