More Catalog Titles Coming Up From Olive Films

Posted December 3, 2012 06:26 AM by Webmaster

Olive FilmsOlive Films have revealed that they are planning to release six more catalog titles in February: Night of the Demons 2 (1994), The Monster Squad (1987), Live Nude Girls (1995), Highlander 2: Renegade Version (1991), Julius Caesar (1970), and Innocent Bystanders (1972). All six titles will street on February 19th.

Night of the Demons 2

For years, Hull House has set in eerie silence - tales of its haunted past have turned into gory jokes - and no one really believes anything ever happened. But a special anniversary date is approaching... and, unknown to the local high school students, a horror fest is in the works. While most of the students at St. Rita's high school are excited about the "official" Halloween dance, Shirley Fennerty intends to party elsewhere. She and her rebellious cohorts are planning a wilder party at the abandoned "haunted" mansion. They want fun... now they're in for the hell-raising party of their lives! Directed by Brian Trenchard-Smith and starring Cristi Harris, Darin Heames and Robert Jayne.

The Monster Squad

Count Dracula has until midnight to retrieve an ancient amulet that will give him final control over the delicate balance between good and evil in the world. To help him, the creepy Count calls on some old friends: the weird Wolfman, grotesque Gill-Man, mildewed Mummy and freaky Frankenstein. As the ghoulish group gets closer to the amulet, it's up to The Monster Squad, headquartered in the local tree house, to pool its questionable resources and stop the monster mayhem! Directed by Fred Dekker and starring Andre Gower, Robby Kiger and Stephen Macht.

Live Nude Girls

They used to trade dolls, but look what they're swapping now! Cynthia Stevenson, Dana Delany and Kim Cattrall star in a frank and funny celebration of friendship, lust and the naked truth about men and women. When childhood chums throw a pajama party for jittery bride-to-be Cattrall, the all-nighter swings from hilarity to heartache as they bare their sexiest fantasies, funniest secrets and innermost feelings - among other things! A terrific all-star ensemble cast gathers for the spiciest slumber party of the year that every woman should see and no man should miss! Directed by Julianna Lavin.

Highlander 2: Renegade Version

It's 2024 and MacLeod (Christopher Lambert) and Ramirez (Sean Connery) are back to save planet Earth. Ozone depletion, time travel and corporate greed are at the core of all the thrilling twists and turns in this stylish action sequel. Directed by Russell Mulcahy and starring Christopher Lambert, Sean Connery and Virginia Madsen.

Julius Caesar

It is an age of unparalleled power and glory. Rome has become the mightiest empire the world has ever known. It is a bloody era of violence and intrigue. It is the time of Julius Caesar. As Rome's greatest empire, Caesar holds absolute dominion over the conquered world. But his jealous rivals in the Roman senate wish to rob his power... by taking his life. Led by ambitious Cassius and reluctantly joined by the patriotic Brutus, the conspirators secretly plot to assassinate Caesar. Even the leader's political ally and friend Mark Antony cannot keep him from his brutal fate; a violent death that will divide the empire's ruling forces and ignite an epic war for honor, vengeance and ultimate power!

Innocent Bystanders

Stanley Baker turns in an exciting performance as John Craig, a James Bond like figure with steel nerves but human feelings which get him into enough scrapes and romantic sidetracks to thrill the most avid superspy buff. Directed by Peter Collinson and starring Stanley Baker, Geraldine Chaplin, Donald Pleasence and Dana Andrews.

The Monster Squad is a worthy release if you don't have the Lionsgate version because its been OOP for quite some time. I just don't understand why they are releasing Night of the Demons 2 and not the first one.

Anchor Bay owns the rights to the first Night of The Demons thats why it isn't getting released

So, when they say "Highlander 2: Renegade Version", is this going to be the one that was released in the mid to late 90's and NOT the defintive version released a couple of years ago with the color corrected skies and what is considered to be the closest to complete cut? That cover art is pretty kick ass though, as is the cover art for Monster Squad.

I would only be interested in Monster Squad, but I already own the fully loaded Lionsgate release. Olive is sooooo disappointing. Long live Blue Underground, Anchor Bay & Shout/Scream Factory!

Night of the Demons 2 was one of those movies I caught late night on HBO and ended up finding on laser disc @ the Mall of America. I never expected it to make it to Blu-ray. Christine Taylor is in it and I still gives me a laugh when I watch it. I will pick it up as I had long since song my laser disc player and only had it recorded to VHS

Innocent Bystanders looks interesting, I love Bond movies and Bond movie ripoffs of the 60s & 70s. Is the original theatrical cut of Highlander 2 ever going to see the light of day again? Not that I really liked it, but I'm sure it must have some fans out there. The various alternate versions are not that great either.

I think that Highlander 2 would benefit from an "Ultimate Edition" of sorts, wherein all three cuts of the film would be presented. It will probably never happen given that it would sell maybe 10 copies, but still, as a sheer curiosity item, I would love to live in a bizarro world where one of the oddest and most bizarre sequels of all time got an Ultimate Edition like Blade Runner.

As a UK customer, I find Olive Films' releases frustrating. There's some good stuff in their catalogue but they're relatively expensive, generally have zero extras and by the time I've added on the shipping charges it's hard to feel motivated to actually buy any of them.

Highlander 2 day 1 for me.

As for the cover art (with the exception of the font) that is the original theatrical poster art, it was also the cover art for Columbia Tri-Star's first VHS release.

For those wondering, the renegade version edits out all references of Planet Ziest. It's a director's cut minus the newly created cgi effects from 2004.

I'd love to see some special features but that could be doubtful.

These are some good titles for Olive, though "Night of the Demons 2" got me thinking about the 1957 flick "Night of The Demon/Curse of The Demon." THAT would be a great release to see on Blu-ray!

Just so you know, the Night of the Demons 2 release will include an audio commentary by director Trenchard-Smith and cinematographer David Lewis.

So... out of all of the Highlander films, Highlander 2 is the one to have multiple US blu-rays? I mean, thankfully the best (the original) is on blu at all, albeit missing extras from the UK release. But we're still missing the two Dimension Films sequels (Final Dimension/The Sorcerer and Endgame), which I believe Lionsgate owns now.

But, I will agree, that is the best cover art to go with for H2. I actually remember a giant cardboard stand for that at Blockbuster Video when I was a little film buff ;-)

I think Highlander 1 could also benefit from a new blu ray. Let's have ALL the extras from each release (including the Queen music videos from the Immortal edition), both cuts of the movie, accompanying soundtrack and MUCH better cover art. A boy can dream.

Glad I have my Lionsgate Monster Squad. It has great special features, and Olive rarely carries over any of that stuff due to teh cost of the rights. Still, for people that didn't jump on it when it was available for many years -- this is your chance to at least get the movie. I like the cover better than the LG one.

Genre releases like Night of the Demons 2 and Highlander 2 are always welcome!

Fingers crossed that "Highlander 2" gets a new transfer. The LionsGate version, despite being advertised as 4K, seems to be largely upscaled (poorly) from a letterbox source. There is heavy aliasing and jagged-edges in MANY scenes, as well as banding in some "above the shield" skylines. Oh, and one of the revised special effects during the "above the shield" scene disappears for a frame.

The same problems are also present on LionsGate's 2-Disc DVD release.

I am picking up the Monster Squad as I lent out my lionsgate copy to my cousins and they lost it... Also picking up the Night of the Demons 2 but I wish they would just release the first one as well. I mean we have the remake and now part 2 I cant wait until they release the first Night of the Demons

Do Olive releases ever come with slipcovers akin to Kino releases? For some reason I have a memory of one of their films having a slipcover or "case" like that. Could be a classy way to display a couple of these releases.

@movieman: None of the Olive BDs I've bought have included slipcovers, but I don't know whether or not they ever do.

Surprised Lionsgate stopped producing Monster Squad. I wonder if they're distribution rights expired, or if it just didn't generate enough sells for them, so they licensed it out. Glad I bought it, when it was about 10 bucks.

@movieman - The only two Olive titles I own have a kinda cheap slipcover. I own The Boogens & Invasion of the Body Snatchers 1956. They seem to be made from some sort of recycled paper, they're not glossy.

There are officially 4 different cuts of Highlander 2, not 3. There is the 91-minute US theatrical, the 101-minute UK/European theatrical, the 1995 Renegade Version and the 2004 Special Edition. I wouldn't count on the Olive release being the Renegade Version as a number of international releases of the Special Edition being labeled as the Renegade Version over the years and just shows the confusion about this film among its many distributors - just add Olive to that long list.
