  1. Not if I review it first, Patrick! ;)

    Looking forward to your review, my friend. Just the interview with Paul and Guillermo is worth the price of the Blu-Ray!

  2. Well to be fair, I only really do their press blurbs on here. My Scream Factory reviews end up over at another website I write for as I figure you and Vic have stuff covered here…

  3. Atari Adventure Square says:

    This PotP Blu is why physical media will never die (just like Rock n’Roll heroes).
    Just the extras on disc one makes me squeal like a groupie.
    But then the extra lovin spoonful on the second disc shows this release is an act of love for movie fans.
    Not just for fans of this excellent film, but a celebration of life as a moviegoer.
    Who’d a thunk that about thirty years after catching the Phantom fever on a midnight TV showing, I’d get to have my own private pressing of it, with every cowbell and wolf whistle once promised in the glorious era of Laserdisc (those titles were cool and a half, crammed with every extra imaginable, unfiltered by studio sheen).

    And while you guys are busy having a battle of the bands to figure out the reviewing process, let me throw my horned helmet on stage.
    My review is actually all set, it goes something like this:
    “Ohmygod!Ohmygod!Ohmygod!Ohmygod!Ohmygod!Ohmygod!Ohmygod!”
    etc
    for about six or seven paragraphs.

    Yeah, this Scream Factory release goes up to 11.
