Thread: NIGHTBREED: THE CABAL CUT

    That blog seemed a little bitter.

    Ok, so I've never seen this movie before, but it sounds like something I would enjoy. There's been so much controversy around the different cuts of this movie that I thought it sounded like if it was something I wanted to see, I better snag it while I could.

    I picked up the LE from Amazon. Is it better to buy through Shout? Amazon was, as you guys mentioned, waaaaay cheaper. Hopefully they deliver on the LE for me.

    If this is the same film that I remember, I guess I have to be the one to say I'm amazed that anyone would pay even 60 bucks for it. No offense.

    I love this movie for reasons of pure nostalgia and because I love old school monster make-up, but I hear you. $80 is obscene and I can't help but feel that the price tag is because there is a hungry market of Barker fans who will pay anything for it. No matter what the story is regarding the amount of work, time and money that went into the restoration- which I'm sure was at a considerable expense- why should that cost be passed down to the consumer?

    Even the hosts of The Screamcast said they thought it was asking too much, and those guys were ecstatic when Scream Factory announced their complete Halloween box-set.

    Yeah, I dunno, if people like it that much that they're willing to pay that price, that's their thing. But considering an pricey Criterion disc usually doesn't break 40...hell, most television season sets don't top 50....80 bucks, IMO, is nuts.

    But I guess if they can get that much for it, power to them.

    I'm getting the distinct feeling that Shout is starting to think that they can charge whatever the hell they want for these releases and they'll get their asking price. They've been releasing solid (for the most part) product, and I enjoy what they're releasing, but damn. I did have to think twice about that NIGHTBREED LE, but even if I end up hating it, there's a ton of people who'll buy the disc from me anyway, no doubt.

    ...cuz it's a business? And they need to make a profit, otherwise what's the point?

    The thing that pisses me off is I don't really care about the extra footage. As someone who grew up on the theatrical cut, that's the version I want to see in HD. Ah well. Scream Factory just made it easier for me to give my money to Mondo Macabro for their upcoming Blu releases.

    For the most part, yes, but there have been enough dodgy releases (Darkman, Nosferatu, Ravenous) to cause me to stop pre-ordering their discs sight unseen.
