We’ve gone through a few quiet (and, indeed, dead) weeks here at Burnt Offerings recently. That all changes today with a bumper crop of new releases from almost all of the studios (except for MGM and, honestly, at this point let’s just stick a fork in them).

Banners, click, shop, support, thanks.  [Read on here...]

Before we get to this week’s new MOD releases, I’d like to call your attention to a recently launched Kickstarter campaign. I know, I know… I swear I’ll be quick and it’s worthy of your support.

As you know, one of my pet causes here at The Bits is urging studios to release obscure and semi-forgotten movies on DVD via the ongoing JET’s Most Wanted project on the Electric Theatre Facebook page.

Scarecrow Video is a big reason why it exists.  [Read on here...]
