Been holding off on Planet Terrror/Deathproof movies, hoping we would get Grindhouse soon... Looks like that failed. Decent prices, might just have to bite the bullet.

The Road hasn't even hit theaters yet so I don't know why it is up there. And Martyrs was supposed to hit Blu-ray in the US as well by never showed. Good list, alas Weinstein sucks in getting their titles out. I want to see some of those flicks in HD.

All those titles were mentioned on their BD-Live service. I'll add Martyr's to the list. Is an Import BD Available? And yes, they suck.

Black Christmas is available in Canada and Wold Creek in the UK.

And they won't be released by Weinstein out here in America.
