And finally, we’d like to address the question of the soundtrack, which we know many of you have asked about: For our new transfer we have gone back to the original audio tracks to create a new soundtrack. Only one song – The Damned’s “Dead Beat Dance” – could not be cleared for inclusion on the disc unfortunately. Otherwise, the rest will be the original audio as heard in the theaters when the film played first-run.

This is our “Lost Episode” of sorts. It was recorded months ago and never used. Something’s have come up and we were unable to record again, but we should be back this coming weekend and back on track! Any emails will be on that episode. Thanks for your patience and thanks to a few of you who yelled at me. Got me motivated to edit this one, which I didn’t do. It probably sounds like shit. It’s all Scream Factory titles and the only one I can remember is Ginger Snaps and maybe Night of the Comment? Ahh well, enjoy.
