Full Moon to release classic Wizard Video compilations to DVD! 10/27/11

It seems that Charles Band is finally ready to gain from the VHS phenomena. Full Moon will be releasing 10 films/compilations from the infamous Wizard Video and Force Video catalogs! I know I always say this, but once again I am stunned by what's being released to DVD these days. Not that these movies are unwatchable, but that I really didn't think that there was any money in re-releasing some of these, esspecially the compilations. Some of these titles will include an introduction by Band himself and a "Grindhouse" featurette. I can only imagine that many of these are transfered from the original VHS and in fact they warn us of this in the description of the Promo video on YouTube:


"The Grindhouse Collection has been assembled from old negatives and lost footage. In many cases, we've had to go back to masters that were 30 years old and in some cases VHS transfers. Even back in the 80's, much of this original source material came from footage that was considered old! Please keep this in mind as you watch these features that have been, in many cases, lost for decades!"
Calling these lost footage is kind of misleading, since hundreds of dedicated VHS collectors have this very footage sitting on their shelves.


The titles include:
THE BEST OF SEX AND VIOLENCE
DREAMANIAC
FILMGORE
MUTANT HUNT
NECROPOLIS
ZOMBIETHON
AUDITION
WHITE SLAVE
FAMOUS T & A
SAVAGE ISLAND

They were released Oct. 21 and so far, it seems the only place selling these is the Full Moon Direct website. They may be an exclusive item that will probably not be around for long so if you're interested in getting these, you better do so now, and for 10 bucks each, I say go for it!
