I don't know much about this label - only that there's only a difference of 13 between them and 88 Films - but they seem to focus on similar content. I have a feeling that 101 Films's biggest coup was just announced, though: it isn't Arrow Video, but these guys, who are unleashing Black Christmas on November 6 in the UK.

I hope 101 have improved, then, because they have used some pretty ropey masters in the past and previous releases of Black Christmas have been less than stellar. I really like this film, so disappointed it isn't with Arrow.

I assume it will be the same master as the Shout! Factory release, since it has all the same extras.

101 Films never seem to produce anything themselves and instead port over already-available stuff for many of their discs. I have a few of their earlier releases and they're okay. Recent releases like Alien Nation have had generally decent feedback, so they're fairly reliable. Kinda depends what film it is and where the master is being sourced from. You can usually guess where they're getting things just by looking at the specs - for example, at least we know Black Christmas will most likely be a port of the Shout disc.

Metrodome folded some months back and 101 Films bought their remaining catalogue, which explains why they have Black Christmas over Arrow. I will get the 101 disc anyway, but not prepared to pay over the odds if they're not putting any extra effort in (i.e. not adding their own extras).

Hoping Black Christmas looks great, as good as the Scream Factory release.

Anyone know if it’s looking good...?

It uses Scream's new 2k scan, but is missing the original mono mix (only includes the badly done remix that was on the previous release with added sound effects etc).
