Are 88 Films going to continue to release anymore Full Moon titles or are they concentrating on other releases now?

was hoping for some slim white cases

Not sure if it's part of the master or an authoring problem, until 88 Films address it I'm guessing we won't find out.

No one has mentioned this problem on the Severin disc in the US so.......
finally rechecked mine today, and I did here some distortion this time,
was around the 1hr1m mark for around 10m, distortion sound can be louder at times and also disappears at certain times, so
not a major issue for me as it wasn't as loud as music/dialogue, and probably why I didn't notice it first time I watched it

To me, you, and almost everyone here; yes.
To them? No

I have no knowledge of their business but I don't think 88 Films is part of the "Big Boys" club, so their production cost is higher therefore they have to charge the consumer more.

If there is a release we really want, and can afford it, won't worry about paying more than 5 bucks if buying it directly from the distributor. But generally speaking I think most people here would be comfortable with paying 2-3 bucks more when they order from 88 Films directly.

We most certainly are not part of the big boys club! And we really do appreciate your support.

With someone having a go at us on the Arrow thread - it makes you wonder why you bother so messages like this are really quite nice to read!

I wasn't having a go, merely stating that your standards are far more in line with the old Arrow than the new. Because they are. All it means is you have trouble selling to customers like me. I would sooner pay you 20 a disc, every single time, for a high quality release, than 8.99 for a release that uses a totally unacceptable transfer and dubtitles on a much promoted original language track. I'm not angsty about any of your releases, I just want you to understand why I'm not buying, and why in contrast I can pretty much hand over a stack of pre-order cash to Arrow every month without a single worry.

What was the unacceptable transfer from 88 Films? Did I miss something?

I wouldn't take it to heart. Not after how well The Bogey Man is selling.

You're obviously doing something right... so keep it up

Night Train Murders. I also had a problem with the unfortunate level of compression on the Toxic Avenger releases (the transfers of course are fine).

88 Films is a very young company, all young companies go through growing pains. I'm sure that in a few years they will become just as good at this as "the big boys", meaning we'll just have to deal with minor hiccups that pop up here and there if we want these films. We're going through a period of great "rebirth" with so many indy labels dusting off obscure little films for us. Instead of nitpicking we should be singing their praises. I don't think anyone wants to go back to the days of 3rd generation Greek VHS bootlegs

Yep, number 3 in the Amazon Horror chart, so it's doing quite nicely.

This is a bit like asking why the special effects in a Roger Corman movie are not akin to those in the new Star Wars. We two guys at this label, with one valuable freelance helper who works hard for us, and we do other jobs to keep the cash coming in. We are not a seven figure company with multiple staff and an international presence. And even with this said we think the director approved scans on stuff like our new releases of Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers and The Bogey Man are right up there.

A nice setiment but I don't buy that at all. It's nitpicking and forum moaning that incentivises labels to up their game; it isn't a natural progression once they start making more money. Just this week Vinegar Syndrome made huge leaps in their presentation standards because of people offering constructive criticism here, and as I understand it they're far bigger than 88.

@88 Films

Can you post a couple of screenshots of Zombie Holocaust and Burial Ground? I'm sure people would like to see how the new transfers look.

Ease off. 88 Films are doing a great job, esp with there Slasher Classics line. Not many companies are focusing on releasing alot of the more obscure slasher's on Blu ray and its great to see 88 doing so.

As stated above, they are a two man company and have other jobs. So with that, I think we should be supportive of there efforts.

I picked up The Boogeyman Monday and i was blown away by the transfer. It's really spectacular and i was really pleased with how great the movie looks.

I can't disagree more. It's not pissing and moaning on forums that make these companies releases better, it's their own passion for the genre and the titles, and their experience and time in the industry of media production and distribution.
