For fans of trash cinema (me), Shout Factory is putting out Michael Winner's very illogical and sleazy thriller, Scream For Help, the best film where a teenaged girl catches her stepfather having gross, doggy style sex on camera. Also features an over-cooked soundtrack by Led Zeppelin drummer John Paul Jones. I have to admit to really enjoying this one, especially when it develops into one of my favorite thriller sub-genres: the home invasion film.
Nice, that made my to watch list from the Trailer Trauma comp

John Bonham was the drummer for LZ. Jones played bass primarily.

Looks wonderful. I'm pleased Carpenter sat down for a Commentary for Mouth. Not my favorite Carpenter by any means but I'll be getting that and Someone's Watching Me.

Another In the Mouth of Madness? Oh well, I'll buy it. Hopefully they'll revisit Escape from New York as well.

SF has already released Escape from New York. Actually they rereleased it as a steelbook. In the Mouth of Madness has never been released by SF before.

What’s happening with The Ambulance? It’s been released but it’s not getting many reviews online. Has anyone seen it, and if so is it from a good source, with a solid encode?

That's a great cast, so it must be awful for no one to ever talk about it

Some things are best passed over in silence.

I daresay they were well paid.

Already have the German Blu-ray for House on Haunted Hill remake, but may be coerced to pick this up if we get cast interviews-- can't imagine Geoffrey Rush sitting down to talk about it, but how great would that be if he did?

The new artwork for Trick r Treat (2007) is stellar and that alone might make me double dip. It's great to see Halloween III get a new scan since that their first disc of it wasn't great. I just wish it wasn't exclusive to the steelbook.

I really, really, really wish they'd put out Let's Scare Jessica to Death.

I'm kind of surprised The Company of Wolves doesn't have a Region A release either. The UK Blu-ray is decent but pretty light on special features. I could see Scream Factory doing a great job putting together something for that.

just want to say, thank you for mention that trailer compilation. i really like these because they're a great way to discover new films as well as get a glimpse of other films i might never watch. had not heard of it before.

also- scream for help sounds like a film right up my alley. thanks

If Shout can or has struck a deal with Paramount, it would then be possible. As for The Company of Wolves, it was a Cannon release back in the day, so it might be possible that a Blu-ray edition could come out from them (unless MGM doesn't have the rights).
