Awesome, I've decided to sell off those Universal Classic Sci-fi releases and just get the individual BD releases at a later date. Besides the only movies I care about from those sets are this, The Mole People, The Deadly Mantis and Tarantula. The others on the set(s) I don't really care to see.

Shout announced today that they'll be doing the Alligator People on BD later this year.

Man this year has been shaping up to be a good year for genre fans between Shout and Kino. Hopefully that's a sign that Criterion will do their Godzilla releases this year.

I'll get you alligator man!

(Never seen the movie: the trailer in Fantastic Dinosaurs of the Movies made it iconic to my childhood!)

Shout does it again with an announcement of Night of the Creeps. They have a deluxe version coming out with a NECA figure of Tom Atkins' character from the movie.

Anyone heard or read anything anywhere about possible blu-ray releases of MATANGO or THE MYSTERIANS??? I re-watched them again this weekend and the DVDs may have looked pretty impressive back in the day compared to my shatty old off-air VHS recordings, but boy do they look like dookey now! :( Someone needs to step up to the plate and offer these in hi-def... that is, if Toho has actually affected quality restorations for them.

a conversation i had with MVD Collector's Brands on facebook (they put out a good selection of b movies) about Alligator (1980) and prophecy the monster movie(1979)

me I hope that one day you guys can get movies like Alligator (1980) or prophecy the monster movie(1979) those would be great on blu ray.

MVD ,Some of those are coming... Just not by us. Sorry.
But happy some are coming!

me at least knowing they are coming at all is good to know many thanks.


a bit vague i know but it seems that one or both of them will be hitting Blu ray sometime in the near future

Both are on Blu-Ray in Japan. (Other non-Godzilla movies on Blu-Ray in Japan are Rodan, Mothra, Atragon and both Frankenstein movies.) The Mysterians looks OK but it's one of the first Toho HD transfers and doesn't stand up so well to their most recent work. Matango is one of those recent transfers and it's really stunning. Toho also has HD scans of most of their other non-Godzilla movies available on Amazon Prime in Japan; I haven't seen all of them yet but the one that impresses me most is Space Amoeba. I hope those will make their way to Blu-Ray either in Japan or preferably in the States before long.
