RUBY (1977)


Quote:



Sixteen years after Ruby Claire's gangster boyfriend was shot and killed by four associates, a series of gruesome murders takes place at the drive-in movie theater she now owns and operates. Meanwhile, the behavior of her mute daughter Leslie is becoming increasingly strange and a visiting psychic claims that forces from beyond are out for revenge.

Excellent news. An overlooked gem. Would be interested to see how the darkness of the film translates in HD.

Going by the reviews of Dead Things, it will be littered with compression artifacts and suffer from black crush.

Why the hell is VCI still around?

They're like a boogeyman that refuses to go away.

They at least stepped up to VC-1 over the horrible MPEG-2. AVC would be better but they say they are looking for equipment they can afford. I am reading good things about Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things blu ray. Will see February 23rd.

Looking forward to RUBY on blu! The two DVDs I have look horrible (like its ripped from a worn out VHS) and non-anamorphic widescreen but one has an awesome commentary with Piper Laurie and Curtis Harrington. Love this movie!

Just got a cancellation notice from Amazon. Looks like the preorder went up a bit prematurely.

No it hasn't be postponed by VCI yet. Its just Amazon had a March release date for some odd reason. They cancelled my pre-order as well. I am ordering directly from VCI or wait for DiabolikDVD.com has it up for pre-order (they have awesome prices on obscure films). Check out their website.
RUBY is not slated for release until mid to late May anyway.

Man, I didn't even know this was getting a Blu. I've almost bought the DVD a few times. Glad to hear it's coming out. I may be in the minority here but I'm absolutely grateful this is being released. As long as it looks halfway decent I'm a happy camper!
