    Good, glad to hear it. You originally handled POOR PRETTY EDDIE, right? Can you re-release that without the DNR?

    Guess I'm easy to please as I've found Poor Pretty Eddie acceptable... but as my TV system isn't an HD one maybe it's the reason why it looked ok to me last year

    That was a contract job. We don't own that master or the extras. The print used was my personal print so maybe we can rescan it at some point...

    Just to give everyone a bit of an inside scoop as to how VS will work, we're planning on creating two separate lines of releases. The first will be factory pressed DVD/Blu combo packs, such as the upcoming H.G.L. collection. These releases will feature fully restored films in single, double or triple features, as well as extras (in some cases extras will be bonus related feature films sourced from sub-par elements). Titles receiving full DVD/Blu releases will be sourced almost exclusively from negatives and mint answer prints. The emphasis with these releases is to offer the highest quality restorations we can using the best available film materials.
    We will also be introducing a [mostly] MOD 'Drive-In' line, which will consist entirely of themed double and triple features sourced primarily from theatrical release prints. These releases will be priced considerably lower than than the 'official' DVD/Blu combo packs and will be available as both DVD-R and Blu-R MOD discs (along the lines of Warner Archives, etc). We will also be offering digital downloads of all MOD titles via our website in 720p.
    The reason for the two separate lines is simple: we have 35mm film elements for dozens and dozens or really cool and rare movies, but many are simply not up to what we feel are proper condition for a restored Blu-Ray release, so rather than not releasing them at all, we've decided that it's far more sensible to transfer them in 2K, perform some basic restoration work, and offer them in MOD double or triple features so that they're at least out there for people to see.
    Additionally, many of our titles will be available in 2K DCP for theatrical screenings (and a handful will also be offered in archival 35mm prints), so if you want to see one of our titles on the big screen, talk to your local cinema and we'll be happy to oblige.

    How much would digital downloads cost? And would it be possible to download extras?

    Alex, right now we're thinking something in the vein of $5 a title for each download and $12-15 a disc for all the MOD double and triple features. The MOD discs will be movies only. No extras, save for an occasional trailer or something in that vein.

    Digital downloads will only be titles offered as MOD discs. Anything that gets a pressed DVD/Blu release will only be available as hard media.

    As for extras, do you mean extras on the DVD/Blu combo packs?

    And, so everyone knows, we're still developing all of this so any feedback, questions and suggestions are strongly encouraged.

    John do you plan to use the label to release some adult movies too or the project you were talking about on the maniacs board some time ago is a different matter?

    Kind of unrelated but since you work with Steven too and I don't want to bother him while he is quite busy : Do you have any idea when he will start a new line with his softcore library? I can't wait to see the Joe Sarno's films they own.

    Currently, what are the chances for MASSAGE PARLOR MURDERS/MASSAGE PARLOR HOOKERS?

    Did you read my mind or just the bottom of the Kickstarter campaign
