Too bad, because I got mine over a week ago from Deep Discount & it was only $16.

Ordered it in my 2nd order, arrived at my doorstep on the 18th I posted a pic in the bought thread the next day. Hoping I get the second volume of the noir set early too. Conversely 2 movies from my first order placed on the second day of the sale have yet to even ship.

Haven't opened it yet, just added it to the gigantic pile of unwatched unopened movies I have.

DVD Drive-In reviews of Forbidden World and Galaxy of Terror DVDs. Normally I wouldn't post DVD reviews in the HD forum, but these two have been posted super early (almost a month before release date) and they give you a nice look at the extras, which are extensive once again. Galaxy of Terror even includes the screenplay as a PDF!

We are still trying to locate film elements for BATTLE, so no, it won't be released with STARCRASH.
Yes, CRAB MONSTERS and NOT OF THIS EARTH are on hold because the EARTH elements are missing. We will probably replace EARTH with an alternate title.
It looked like all the elements were in storage when we announced the titles... only to find out some were missing.

re: The One and Only Shout! Factory Blu-ray Thread

Cliff,
Is Star Crash a lock (all elements accounted for, etc)? Has it been transferred yet? Anything that could queer the deal at this point? Any idea when we will get the official announcement with features list?
This film, in a high quality version, has been a Holy Gail for me since I bought my first DVD. It would be great to finally be able to toss the French Pal disc, but I still won't believe it until I have it in my hands (never really expected that BCI two-fer to be realized so that was far from a shock).

Also, is Saint Jack included in the Corman library?

And since I don't belong to the other forums where you post more frequently, it's great to have a chance to finally say how glad I was to see you not only land on your feet after the BCI bust, but wind up in a place much better equipped to exploit your talents and dedication.
From my perspective as a consumer, Shout is a hell of a lot more impressive organization than BCI was. Congratulations.

Thanks for the quick response, Cliff! Hopefully things will work out with Battle. Are there more Blu-ray releases planned for 2010?

Cliff,

Here' s a question for you. Why is it the DVDs only get slip covers and not the Blu-rays? Since the BDs are priced higher, I (and others) would probably expect at least the packaging to be the same.

Thanks

Here is the trailer for Starcrash. Can't say it made much sense to my tiny Earthling brain.

Yes, we are finalizing both discs this week (it's a two disc set) which will give you an idea of how many extra features are on the set.
We did a new transfer from the U.S. IP and it looks pretty great. 5.1 DTS HD Lossless audio on the BR.

No, we don't have Saint Jack.

Thanks!!
Cliff

We only did one slipcover - Piranha - and it's not on the Blu-Ray because the amount of units we made was tiny compared to the DVD.... because Blu-Ray sales for independents are very low.... and the lenticular would have cost too much to make for such small sales.

I can't say at this time. Sales need to improve on Blu-Ray. Sure, the studios are selling a lot, but many retailers won't even carry our Blu-Rays so the sales are low... and the cost of making a Blu-Ray is twice (or more) than a DVD.

Shame about Saint Jack, but great news about SC.

Doubt it's "supposed to".

Looks like a crazy mix of Star Wars, Battle Beyond the Stars, The Perils of Gwendoline in the Land of the Yik Yak (women's outfits) ...and God knows what else. It also looks like an instant silly B classic!

I've never even seen a trailer for that ..but after that, I. must. see. this.

Starcrash actually recycles footage from Battle, so that would be an apt comparison!

re: The One and Only Shout! Factory Blu-ray Thread

Fans of Corman and New World should check out the UK book Mind Warp!: The Fantastic True Story of Roger Corman's New World Pictures. It's selling for ridiculous prices on Amazon, but can be had for 22.34 ($33.59) shipped from Amazon UK. It says 1 to 2 months to arrive, however. You can also purchase a copy autographed by the author directly from Hemlock Books for 28.12 ($42.28) shipped, and they informed me it should only take a week to arrive. It looks like an entertaining read, and pretty extensive at 280 pages. Here's a review.
