Scorpion Releasing had that update. It might be one of those titles distributed by Kino Lorber.

Yes, according to Blu-ray.com, this is coming from Kino/Scorpion, not Code Red.

No, it is a Code Red title. Scorpion/Walt Olsen is producing the disc for Code Red.

It can still be distributed by Kino Lorber due to popularity of this title, like they did for Pit Stop blu or a number of DVDs, (Roger Corman's Post Nuke Collection discs being released in January).

It'd be fantastic if Arrow could release their own edition of Opera, in the states no less, and we could get a repeat of the Pit Stop debacle.

Finally! Thanks for the heads up.
Hopefully those specs live up to their own hype (always interesting to finally see films such as these with their Italian soundtrack) - it's been tough watching those Shameless editions quickly become less available with no substantial news from Code Red (until now).
Really looking forward to their Argento, Fulci & Soavi releases

SASQUATCH / ENCOUNTERS WITH THE UNKNOWN BD-50! limited edition Blu

Hi CODE RED

I bought this and the quality of these prints is so sub-par I returned it. Especially ENCOUNTERS WITH THE UNKNOWN that was unwatchable.
I didn’t expect any blu-ray to look like a bootleg. Not remastered maybe, for some of these older movies, but still over 90%.
I thought I could trust CODE RED.
I guessed after that PRESENTED IN TRUE GRINDHOUSE FASHION meant crap pic.

I just don’t think you should do discs like this. Two movies don’t make up for it.
But if you did want to lower quality to such dubious standards, be clear about it by describing the pic quality. Such as:.
Bootleg quality. VHS quality.
Colors in second feature almost unrecongizable; nature unidentical.
Stuff like that.

- Unimpressed, or depressed, customer ☻

THIS MAN IS THE REASON I DO NOT WANT TO DEAL WITH OVERSEAS PEOPLE. FUKIN' COMPLAINER!

Real arrogant aussie. aussie are friendly, so most likely he might be from this group

There are a couple of Blu-Rays from Code Red up for pre-order on Amazon. It's truly a different world.
Last Plane Out & The Funny Farm.

UPDATE: and then I found this post. Looks like Walter Olsen wasn't kidding when he suggested Code Red were widening their distribution. Now if only the same titles could be released through all of the same etailers.

You say that like you think Code Red could ever have a better distribution model than Bill procrastinating indefinitely on shipping out orders personally because there's a dead rat in his storage shed.

He just started bad mouthing Kim Newman in his stickied thread on Blu-ray.com, seemingly unaware of anything about him other than that Arrow has employed him. He also thought The Hysteria Continues were providing MST3K-style joke commentaries

He doubled-down on the ignorant rhetoric, too! That thread's scarier than anything the label's ever released. Can anyone reading this who has any kind of working or personal relationship with Kim Newman please advise him to not accept any offers from this label

Dear LORD the ignorant sycophants in that thread, bragging about how above academic extras they are... water truly finds its own level

EDIT: And I'm sure Newman is thrilled his quoted price was immediately shared in that thread

I am killing myself. Geez
