The Doctor Will See You…Dead!

UK-based Odeon Entertainment Group will release Antony Balch’s HORROR HOSPITAL on Blu-ray in August of 2015. This new HD master will also include the audio commentary track that I originally produced for Dark Sky Films back in 2008 with Producer Richard Gordon, moderated by historian Tom Weaver.

Roommates Wanted

Back in 2007, I began work on the Arthur Marks titles for MPI Media Group. Those films included LINDA LOVELACE FOR PRESIDENT, THE CENTERFOLD GIRLS and BONNIE’S KIDS.  Finally, the remaining titles from Marks’ General Film Corp will be released on DVD + Blu-ray: THE ROOMMATES and A WOMAN FOR ALL MEN. I’m particularly happy to finally share the final interview actress Roberta Collins gave before she passed away. It was shot during a difficult time for Bobbi, following the death of her son. She wanted to do the interview for him, calling him “her biggest supporter”.

I worked hard to make her feel comfortable and to put her mind at ease during the session. I’ll always remember the time we spent together, leading up to the interview and a few times after, with great fondness. Bobbi was a vivacious spirit. Her role in THE ROOMMATES is a prime example of what made her the Joan Blondell of drive-in movie screens. I dedicated the final piece to her memory and I hope fans will enjoy the candid interview. THE ROOMMATES/A WOMAN FOR ALL MEN streets on March 24th.

Kiss My F.I.S.T.

On February 10th, 2015 Kino Lorber will release F.I.S.T. starring Sylvester Stallone. For this piece, I produced and edited the 18-minute featurette entitled The Fight for F.I.S.T., which details the film’s – ahem – rocky production. The piece includes great interviews with screenwriter Joe Eszterhas and director Norman Jewison.

WHITE LIGHTNING & GATOR – available Nov. 11th

I’m very excited for each of these films to finally be released in their proper aspect ratios and in glorious HD. If that wasn’t enough, the discs feature a two-part interview with Burt Reynolds that I produced and edited. A huge thanks to Todd Vittum, Melinda Proenza and Aaron Wells for helping out.

It was a real treat putting together the special features for Vinegar Syndrome’s newly restored edition of the 80’s slasher favorite, GRADUATION DAY For this edition, I moderated the commentary track with Producer/Writer David Baugh and produced four new featurettes with director Herb Freed, actress Patch Mackanzie, editor Martin Jay Sadoff and an extended piece with Baughn where he discusses his background in the film industry.
