    Yeah, this has been known even before the release date. I believe I was one of the first to even compare the Blu-ray with my old VHS after someone else mentioned that the scene was different.

    Technically, it's not really "censored" per se — it's just an alternate edit of the sex scene used for whatever reason. There's still plenty of nudity shown, but it's like a different take was used.

    It may not have been posted on this forum, I can't really recall. If it wasn't then it might have just been one of those times when the forum was down here and it was just kinda skipped over.

    What surgeons thought to be a tumor growing on the neck of patient Karen Tandy (Susan Strasberg) is actually a fetus growing at an abnormally accelerated rate. But when Karen reaches out to former lover and phony psychic Harry Erskine (Tony Curtis), she discovers that she is possessed by the reincarnation of a 400-year-old Native American demon. Now with the help of a modern-day medicine man (Michael Ansara), Erskine must survive this ancient evil’s rampage of shocking violence and forever destroy the enraged beast known as The Manitou.

But when an alcoholic minister and his family move into the cursed residence, an idealistic young priest (James Houghton) and a cynical police detective (Albert Salmi) start their own investigation into the unexplained violence. Has the daughter of Satan returned for a rampage of vengeance? Will the laws of the Church be strong enough to cast out this demon? And if evil has truly found a new home, is the entire neighborhood headed straight to hell?

    That's interesting... I don't think Universal would think twice about these titles once licensed out. Must be something to do with the talent behind the extras...

    **NEW TITLE ANNOUNCEMENT**

    It’s the year of Hammer Films for us as you can already tell and we have yet another one planned for the Summer. FRANKENSTEIN CREATED WOMAN (starring legendary star Peter Cushing) is being prepped in Collector’s Edition Blu-ray release!

    Here are the early details we have at present time:

    • National street date for U.S. only (Region A) is June 11th.
    • Release will come with a slipcover (guaranteed for three months after its original release date).
    • The newly-commissioned artwork pictured comes to us from Mark Maddox (Dracula: Prince of Darkness). This art will be front-facing and the reverse side of the wrap will the original theatrical poster design.
    • Extras and specs are still in progress and will be announced later in May.

    Pre-orders on our site begin today. Includes the Blu-ray plus a rolled 18” x 24” poster of the new art. The poster exclusive to us and will be made at a limited-run: https://www.shoutfactory.com/…/frankenstein-created-woman-c…

    That poster is awfully tempting... But last I saw they still print out the "Collector's Edition" part which is real tacky. I'd rather have Susan Denberg get a credit if you're going to use the space and ink.

    Yet another re-release in a steelbook.

    ***New PIRANHA (1978) Steelbook! ***

    Joe Dante's killer fish favorite is now officially a “Scream Factory”-branded title as we present it in a new Blu-ray Steelbook® packaging! Swimming its way this Summer (naturally). Read on for more details:

    • Official street date is June 11th for U.S. and Canada territories (Region A).

    • We are preparing a new 4K scan of the film from the original negative and have recorded a brand new audio commentary with Executive Producer Roger Corman! All bonus features from the prior Blu-ray release will be ported over as well.

    • Only 5,000 units of the steelbook are being produced total. When they’re gone, they’re gone!

    • The artwork you see pictured on both come to us from by artist Nathanael Marsh (who also illustrated our prior Carpenter-themed steelbooks, including Halloween II & III). If you order directly from our site though, your packaging will also include an exclusive 28.5” x 16.5” rolled lithograph of the illustration. (The litho will not be available elsewhere and only 1,500 of them each are being made). The site offer with the litho can be found at https://www.shoutfactory.com/…/piranha-limited-edition-stee…

    I mean cool I guess that it’s gettimg a fresh 4K scan from the negatives, but AGAIN why isn’t Shout dealing with their more problematic transfers (like Deadly Blessing, Cat People, Death Becomes Her, etc) and reissuing those? Fuck, Cat People is virtually unwatchable it’s one of the worst-looking blu-rays I’ve ever seen.

    In these specific cases I would think it's because it's ultimately up to Universal if they want to do new transfers of them. I think the main reason they licensed it out was to squeeze one more fistful of cash out of these transfers before they do 4k back under Universal's own banner.

    Whereas Piranha is now own by Shout lock, stock and barrel. So Shout could keep running Piranha's negative through the scanner until it disintegrated if they wanted to.

    Yeah that's true, but they were still able to do new scans of Halloween II and III and those are Universal titles.
