Retro Slashers interviewed Scorpion about the upcoming releases. Here are some tidbits:

  • Final Exam and The Devil Within Her to be released in September
  • Humongous, Nothing But The Night to be released in October
  • House on Sorority Row and The Carpenter will be released in November
  • House on Sorority Row will be a new HD master, with 3 new interviews, including one with Harley Jane Kozak
  • Final Exam will be a new HD master, with audio commentary from producer Myron Meisel, moderated by Katarina.
  • The new Humongous release will be brighter than the VHS release, which Scorpion said was a “bad video job”
  • Katarina will do intro and epilogue sequences, but does not interrupt the films (and her segments can be skipped). She also moderates all new audio commentary tracks

We are happy to hear about the improved brightness on Humongous. Bill G. owns a VHS copy and he won’t review the film because the transfer is so dark as to be almost unwatchable. Hopefully the new DVD will change all that.

Katarina Waters is a British actress and female wrestler. You might know her better as “Katie Lea Burchill” from the WWE (Raw), “Winter” from Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, or “Nikita” from Frontier Wrestling Alliance.

Code Red is also doing something similar with former WWE diva Maria Kanellis. It’s called Maria B-Movie Mahyem and the DVDs are set to come out in September, going right up against Scorpion. Code Red’s releases with Maria will include the gore classic Night of the Demon (1980), Mardi Gras Massacre (1978), and Haunted (1977).
