Michael Felsher confirmed that a box set of Silent Night, Deadly Night 3 - 5 are on the way (presumably in time for the holidays?), in their original full-frame aspect ratio with a bunch of extras.

$17.99 On Amazon for three movies is an easy purchase for me.

Whatís up with the 2-4 week wait on Amazon? Iíll be getting mine tomorrow, but did that not produce enough? Were people actually clamoring for this title?

Pre-ordered the Silent Night, Deadly Night collection. Not sure about the quality of the films but I have the other two from Scream Factory so why not.

Wow! Earth Girls Are Easy could be up there as one of my least favorite movies of all time. It was beyond bad, but I had to watch whole thing. Didnít even fast forward. But, I tell ya, the extras, interviews are easily more entertaining than the film.

I almost re-bought the Dentist films on DVD, as lost them during my move 2-years ago.

Glad these are being released under the Vestron label

I remember when the Dentist movies premiered on HBO. HBO used to premiere some low budget horror and action titles on a Friday night. They were fun. I’ll probably get this.

Silent Night, Deadly Night 3-5 is currently $11.99 at Best Buy and Amazon.

I don't recall ever seeing them and I read they are trash, but for that price and to have some cheesy horror, I decided to go for it.

I give Vestron/Lionsgate some credit, they try to make quality boutique Special editiobn B titles that are affordable unlike Shout who's titles are mostly over-priced.

If anyone's in the Los Angeles area, Dark Delicacies is doing a signing of The Dentist Collection with some cast & crew on January 28th. Brian Yuzna, Ken Foree, Jillian McWhirter, Alan Howarth and Anthony Ferrante are all scheduled to be there. You have to pre-order on their website.

https://www.darkdel.com/store/c2/SIGNINGS.html#/

They also have some spots available for people that can't attend the in-store signing. These are usually very limited and sell out. I just grabbed one. It was $20 + $10 shipping.

I re-watched Blue Steel a few years ago when I think aired on the old MGM cable channel. It’s a good 80s cop thriller.

Yes, the Vestron releases all have bonus features. How good they are, it depends. I would be really surprised if they got an interview with Jamie Lee Curtis for this release. 3 other cast members, Silver, Fletcher and Pena, are deceased.

I don't know if Kathryn Bigelow participates in bonus features these days.

Yup not surprised. I assume these extras were produced during the strike as well.

The only thing I remember about Blue Steel is that it's the movie where Jamie Lee Curtis joined that esteemed sorority of actresses, including Anne Heche and Sherilyn Fenn, who inadvertently flashed their buttholes on camera.
