Ah, damn it. I did a search for an existing thread, but didn't see it in the results. Ah well.

Scream is also releasing The Manitou on Blu-ray on the same day

I'm guessing that VICE SQUAD and BABY BLOOD will be coming soon as well.

I love this movie. As much as I hate double dipping, I'm going to have to do it for this one.

And Dawn of the Discs tweeted that Gary Sherman said that Shout is going to release Vice Squad on Blu-ray.
