    My bad, I should have added blu-ray after the title. Personally, that's everything I look for in a blu-ray review. Screengrabs, extras, technical info, etc. I don't need a movie review of Hot Dog: The Movie, lol.

    Much more interesting to me than junk like WhySoBlu, which doesn't even include accurate blu-ray screengrabs.

    I have to say the film I am really excited about is Patty. I even have two copies of the original soundtrack cassettes. The whole zeitgeist of how Patty and the SLF story was portrayed in different avenues of mass media encapsulated the times perfectly, and nowadays if the exploitation film market did a film like that the public would be up in arms, where back then things actually were a lot more callous. So you could go see an exploitation take on it like this which played more as what the raincoat crowd suspected went on, a 2 part miniseries on tv with a much more nuanced fact based narrative, or watch chevy chase on SNL every week introduce courtroom sketches that were kids drawings or betty boop cartoon, and each depiction said as much about society at large as much as about Patty/Tania. Btw, for a more recent re exploration of the matter, Jeffrey Toobin's book American Heiress is also highly recommended.

    ***TOMBS OF THE BLIND DEAD UPDATE***

    “Coming to Special Edition Blu-ray and DVD later in 2020! Synapse Films is working on a beautiful new high-definition restoration of Amando de Ossorio's 1972 horror classic, TOMBS OF THE BLIND DEAD! More details to come later this year, but we wanted to upload this little treat for you all now. We'll be presenting the full uncut version of the film on home video as well as the U.S. version.”

    Interesting because they confirmed it already a few months ago and indicated a April 2020 release. This more general statement seems to be walking that back. And to a degree I wonder what they're still working on as they've already presented a restored screening; presumably with a satisfactory master. Extras holding it up perhaps?

    And no mention of a Steelbook nor UHD? They almost seem to be responding to my UHD statement in the Shout thread. :p

    Any news on The Kindred, Lemora, or The Deadly Spawn ? I’ve really been looking forward to those for a long time.
