I wonder if The Blob will be slightly cheaper due to the increased units. I doubt it, but it's nice that they're countering the loads of scalpers that this title would have and giving more fans a chance to own this movie.

It sucks that these are distributed by Twilight Time. I really can't stand a company that limits its pressings. They're always sold out and we can't get them through Amazon. I refuse to support them (they've also made it impossible for me to do so with their 3,000 units of past titles that I was looking forward to but never even got a chance at). I'm hoping another distributor will pick up their entire library sooner or later.

I can't fully blame TT, they're probably too small a company to be able to bankroll the production and distribution of a wide retail release. I blame Sony for licensing their titles to them, instead of licensing to a more experienced and capable outfit or even doing it themselves. Always disappointing to see one of these TT announcements with something I actually want.

@TheManInBlu:

TT has only had a handful of titles that sold out quickly (Fright Night, Christine, Journey to the Center of the Earth). And even then, it's not like there was no chance to pre-order them; they didn't sell out so fast that people "never even got a chance." Don't blame the distributor for you being asleep at the wheel.

Was hoping Sony took a hint from the sales of Fright Night and Christine and would instead give The Blob to Scream Factory or something, but whatever. Another race against time. Also, for all the bitching many people do about the limited editions, only 14 of their titles have actually sold out, a few of which took years to do so. The remaining 68 or so are still readily available. The prices are very hard to swallow, though. I give you guys that.

If TT has these that you can count on them being released by someone else further down the road. This has been such an expensive year that I can rest easily knowing that THE BELIEVERS and THE BLOB will wait a year or so.

Some really great titles here.. "The Blob" remake, "Salvador", "The Killer Elite".. You can count me in for sure when it comes to those ones.. Oh, how my hated for Twilight Time regarding "Christine" and "Fright Night" has tuned around so much and I'm starting to have quite a collection of their films, only 6 now at the moment, but before the year is over I'll likely have 10 titles total atleast.

'Audrey Rose' scared me to death as a kid watching it on the late, late show. Even edited for television, it led to some hiding under the covers when I was about 12, and it still holds up today. Plus, you can't beat Anthony Hopkins. Shortly thereafter I caught him in 'Magic' and was scared all over again.

It doesn't matter if it's 3000 or 5000, if TT refuses to limit purchases to ONE per buyer from the START then the cult titles (like this) will always get bought up by the scalpers and sold on eBay above MSRP. Just be there online or on the phone and and make sure you get your ONE copy for your SELF.

Ditto the above post. Hopefully the 3 horror titles will have a reasonable limit per customer from the get-go. At least after messing up twice with Christine they seem to finally be handling things right. I hope the 5000 on Blob doesn't prevent them from setting up a reasonable purchase limit. I've been nervous about missing out on this for almost a year.

The Blob remake is not quite as popular as Christine, Night of the Living Dead '90 or Fright Night, so I'm confused about the bump to 5000. Trying to cash in on horror fans once again? If TT actually cares about fans, they would release higher runs of all of their titles, include new extras and charge reasonable prices. But why do any of that when you can charge Criterion prices for bare bones releases (and sometimes recycled extras). If smaller companies can not only license titles from major studios, but produce new extras, new transfers and charge more realistic prices (i.e. Grindhouse's The Big Gundown), what's TT's excuse?

It's ironic that The Blob is getting bumped up to 5,000 when every other movie in the announcement is much better than it is.
Even Shawnee is still embarrassed about how bad The Blob turned out.

Centennial Summer and Man Hunt for me. Glad I'm not into horror films, but I'm very happy that more of The Blob's fans will be pleased than those of say, Christine. However, it sucks that better films Twilight Time has released haven't gotten the increased quantities.
My sole complaint about Twilight Time is the limited quantities since I feel that classic films should be seen by the largest possible audience to keep them alive.
The Blob will still sell out day one. It's been touted for the past two years as part of this October's lineup and there's no way any super-fan of it doesn't know about it by now.

@bluknight1: A nice sentiment but the reality is different. Most of TT's 3,000 copies releases are still available. Many of them have now been on the market for at least a year or more. A few clicks of the mouse are all that is required. No one is being denied the opportunity to make a purchase. Everyone has had a chance to order them if they wanted them but the sad fact is that is that the number of people who do want them is smaller than the number of people who wanted those same films on DVD. I expect that most people feel that the DVD's PQ & AQ is good enough. That would also explain why the big studios are concentrating on current releases and not doing much in classics/catalogue department.

Why buy The Blob on blu ray when you can just purchase it in HD through Amazon streaming? Twilight Time is not known for Criterion like restorations so most likely they share the same transfer.

What's really annoying is that us international customers can't order from TT when there is something worth getting... we have to take our chances with eBay. :-/ That said, I did manage to get my hands on a copy of Rita Sue and Bob Too which is rather a cult classic in the UK - why it's come out in the US on Blu-ray but not in the UK is beyond me!

AUDREY ROSE (1977) BLU-RAY - Oct 14th
Read the book by Frank De Felitta prior to the film coming out and was somewhat disappointed in the film. I'm wondering how it will play out almost 40 years later. Will definitely buy, but the book was scarier than the film.

@jimmybearlondon: Why not? I'm an international customer and I've ordered from them plenty of times.

@everybody whining about TT's releasing policies: do some research before whining.

About this batch o titles, and most of their latter ones: sad to see they're abandoning the older titles (movies of the '40s, especially). Well, llike every other house has done, I guess, except maybe Olive.

Salvador is a solid movie. It's not as good as Under Fire, The Year of Living Dangerously or The Killing Fields, and Jim Belushi is awful as always, but a manic James Woods carries the movie pretty well.

With TT ruining Night Of The Living Dead by Tom Savini with the blue hue, I am hesitant to buy from them. You always seem to get bitched at here by people calling most of us "whiners" concerning the limited releases. Most of us are working stiffs who do not spend their days at a computer counting down the seconds for a pre order. We have jobs, families, and the like. To each his own, of course, but just because most buyers either have little free time or little fee money doesn't make them WHINERS. It makes them humans who are tired of getting the bad end from money hungry labels.

@calibraexis: No one needs to be sitting waiting at their computers for a TT release. They do not sell out that fast. In fact few of their offerings have sold out at all. Go look at their website. You can still buy most of the movies they've ever announced. Some have been available for a couple of years anyway. It is not like buying tickets to a concert or event. You have lots of time to place your order for the majority of their films.

reidw, I think he's referring to all the horror, genre & more popular films. Those are the ones that some of us want most, and consistantly sell out quick. TT and SAE have improved their system (better late than never) to make it easier for more fans to get these films before the scalpers. After missing out on Christine the first time, since I only checked SAE's site once a day, I set my alarm for 4AM (I live in Japan) pre-loaded my cart and counted down the seconds to order Christine and still missed out since they didn't set a purchase limit on the few extra copies. Again, I'm glad they finally improved things, but experiences like these make a lot of fans nervous about future releases of more popular movies.
PS, has it been 2 years since they announced The Blob? That's how long I've been stressing about missing out on this. Their recent changes make me a bit more confident, but still worried if they don't announce they'll be having a low purchase limit from the get-go.
