I guess Kino Lorber went all in on raiding TT based on this (as they will no doubt be Scorpion-branded KL titles), probably more to come

I watched the Scorpion release of Clifford last night, and wow is this a film where I don't get the subsequent re-appraisal. It's absolutely awful. Almost everything Clifford does is the kind of behavior you'd see in a Bugs Bunny cartoon, except that we sympathize with Bugs and laugh at his antics, because he's likable and usually has cause (i.e. someone trying to kill him). Clifford, however, is insufferable. Short specializes in playing weirdos, and it's often exhausting even at the end of a SNL length skit. Here, it quickly becomes an endurance test. The only way this could have worked would have been to base the movie around Grodin's Martin as a sympathetic foil to Clifford's psycho twerp and let Martin then kill him off at the end. Bring back Clifford's parents and have them all celebrate. Let Sarah agree with Martin that kids are awful, and she agrees to never have any. They get married, everyone is happy, the end.

I guess The Kindred was just a pipe dream again?

The Kindred is with Synapse and in September they offered the following update via Rue Morgue
What is the status of THE KINDRED?

That’s been going on for years. There were issues that had to be taken care of with the film’s owners first, that came up after we announced it all those years ago. Over the time those took to resolve, I realized that the masters we had were no longer up to par, because they had been done years before. So when we got the green light to continue, I decided to redo everything from scratch. Then COVID happened, and the labs we work with are still closed; a lot of people in the restoration industry are not working, so it’s taking a little time. We’re just kind of waiting it out and finishing up a couple of other projects, and hopefully, in another month or so, we’ll be able to get the materials that we need and continue with THE KINDRED.

What kind of bonus features do you have planned for it?

Red Shirt Pictures has done a lot of great extras, like making-ofs. We even got an interview with Amanda Pays, which was able to happen because of the delays; her schedule freed up and we finally got her. And the version of THE KINDRED we’re doing is the international edition, which has a few extra gore snippets, so it’ll be worth the wait. Synapse doesn’t put anything out before its time; we want to make sure it’s right before we put it out because, knock on wood, we haven’t had any mistakes or recalls in 23 years, and there aren’t too many other companies out there that can say the same.

Thanks! Guess it’s been long enough that I forgot the company that had the rights.
