As always sir, love your list! And of course there are a few on here I've not seen(DEATH WISH CLUB, ZOMBIE HIGH and a few others). Great diverse choices!

Andrew Green said...

Glad to see Gremlins in there....
And I've been trying to obtain Island of Death for quite a while now.

Any ideas for where I might find it on the cheap?

Thanks RP! Couldn't have done it without ya!

Andrew-- That's a tough one. It's been out of print for some time. I know Arrow Film in the UK just put out a new DVD. With great artwork to boot. It would only work if you had a Multi-region DVD Player, though.

The Arrow UK DVD of Island of Death is Region free you'll be glad to here - I am watching it right now and the box says Region 0. Superb quality (albeit a fullscreen print)

Cinema Du Meep said...

Thanks for the heads up, Erik!

I need the pick up that Arrow DVD for myself, as well. It has a load of special features, and I'm clearly a big fan of the movie!

HystErik said...

The special features are great, Nico Mastarakis is a terrific speaker, very funny. And there's a really fun featurette where different types of band have a crack at covering the theme song :)

A very clever post. There are a number of films I haven't heard of many of the titles you used. Island of Death sounds great.

Edgar, you should check it out. For better or worse, Once you see it, you never forget it!
