Cue the mindless, anonymous bitching...


I'm looking forward to Sole Survivor. It's a nifty little film, and I'm glad it's getting what sounds like quality treatment.

I'm not looking forward to Sole Survivor. It's a crappy little film, and I'm not glad it's getting what sounds like quality treatment.

why dont you impress me and put out what everyone want to see?

Why does Code Red impress harry potter with what he wants to see? Maybe because he's not the center of the world! God!

2 vs 1, in favour of buying this DVD. Way to go Code Red!

Yes this looks good and I'm glad it's finally getting a release. But can we have some screenshots of 'Nightmare' PLEASE??

Well, you came when I called, Anon. Good doggie.

If you're referring to me I wasn't bitching. I am in fact glad that this film is getting a release as I have never seen it and am very curious about it.

But I'm especially curious about Nightmare as I heard these guys were putting it out... which rocks!

Are you like the company's watchdog or something? sheesh..

Oops.

Anonymous 1:02, I mistakenly put "anon" when I was referring to "harry potter". So, my apologies if you thought I was griping at you.

Great April fools joke. This label is putting nothin' out because it's a 4/1 joke. I never saw code dead's dvd at stores nor I know anyone that bought one. Because they are phoney. U guys dont even have the steel balls that Synapse, Severin, anchorbay, subrosa, noshame, darksky or others have. Just a bunch of "Z" titles. Not hits. Go out of business and rot away like a rotten apple.

I hardly doubt it's an April Fool's joke since it's all over the web. Plus Boardinghouse, Dead Pit, and "Can I Do It Till I Need Gasses?" already have release dates too. They can't all be April Fool's Day. Why do certain people, who don't even like Code Red, feel it necessary to go onto their blog?

Anyways, Code Red, I'll have owned four of your titles by next week. Devil Times Five is here! :)

That's probably a typo. It's "glasses".

BUNCH OF "Z'" FILMS. WOW. WHY DON'T YOU IMPRESS US LIKE OTHER LABEL AND PUT A HIT FILM ON THE WEBSITE? I THINK CASANEGRO IS MORE ACTIVE THAN U GUYS. QUIT AND GET A JOB AT 7-ELEVEN.

can't think of a lame name said...

Some people are idiots. To the person that goes by "Johnny Appleseed have you actually gotten off your ass and gone to a store and looked?

I have seen Code Red titles at more than one store. And this is multiple stores and multiple titles.

And anyone who would use the name Harry Potter should be shot.

This blog is such a bitch fest it's actually amusing.

Sole Surivor was released on 4/1. Amazon totally botched their orders, but managed to get them out only a couple of days late.

I'm pretty impressed with the DVD. Except for one anomaly at the very beginning of the film, the picture quality is sharp. The sound is fine. I don't have a particularly robust system, so I can't critique with any more depth.

I've only checked out one of the extras--the trailers for upcoming Code Red releases: The Unseen, Human Experiments, The Dead Pit, Silent Scream, and The Farmer.

Kudos to Code Red for using the original trailers for those films, instead of hashing something together like Shriek Show does.

So far, I like!

I got my hands on this DVD last week and I can't wait to find some time to watch it and review it on my blog. Code Red has always been pumping out quality titles and this should be no different.

Excellent DVD of a very satisfying underrated film. I did a review for it at DVDBeaver (http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film2/DVDReviews37/sole_survivor.htm).

I've never seen THE UNSEEN but the trailer looks interesting. Hopefully the film itself looks as good (print-wise) as the trailer on the DVD.

Can't wait for THE NESTING as well.
