Ralf & Uwe - I think 'Brides OF Dracula' would be an excellent Hammer release; I'm sure many would consider it the best Hammer film to have not been released in any form on 8. I probably overlooked it as I have a decent 16mm print. 'The Devil Rides Out' came to mind because some of the 4 x 400' prints are very good, and if Derann still had the edits from the master and could restore it to full length, that would make a very desirable release.

Michael - You might be joking about what a 'Rocky Horror' audience would do, but when I screened my (sadly faded) 16mm print of this in my home, there was no bad behaviour and I was the only person with a water pistol!
Jan - It's true that it's a cult audience, but I'd say it's a cult on a scale like no other, that goes far beyond a clique. The stage show still tours almost constantly, at least in the UK. We now have 3 'pre-orders' here for RHPS so far, so maybe it's only second to Wallace and Grommit.

Put me down for any extra extracts from Gladiator, cracking film and as we have seen, real top quality super 8 prints.
Like the Matrix releases but would have prefured the fist Matrix film. As for Hammer Horror they are the right sort of length 4 x 400ft for S8. I have a very dupy looking print of 'Countess Dracula' which has been popular wth my audience, but who could resist Ingrid Pit. Wallice & Gromit in the Curse of the Were Rabit seems to be one of the more practical propositions, but was it a scope release? Not being scope must have limited the sales of Spiderman which was another cracking film.

I would go for Hammer movies like Brides of Dracula or Devil Rides Out.

Rocky Horror sounds fun too. It has quite a cult following

I know there's number of titles that absolutely MUST come out on super-8 that I always think of... except I just can't come up with their names right here, right now. Bugger, that human memory thing.

Jan, I feel the same way too. My mind is blocked as well.

Robert: I did not know that The Godfather was masked.
thanks for the info.

John, thanks for the heads up on Rocky .

I suppose asking a British firm for a feature length print of 1776 would be a bit.... cheeky?

All politics aside, it is a great movie!

I have to throw in my vote for more HAMMER FILMS titles. I would go for any titles really but here are a few must-haves:

BRIDES OF DRACULA
DRACULA AD 72
FRANKENSTEIN CREATED WOMAN
THE GORGON
COUNTESS DRACULA
VAMPIRE LOVERS
LUST FOR A VAMPIRE

Hello Brian,

good to see, that many collectors like the hammerfilms. There are nice titels on your list. For example Lust for a vampire is a good choise. I have the very good edited four parter (4x400 ft) in my collection. But if there will be a full length version I will change it.

Hi All

Yes all those Hammer movies I would be interested in and they are quite short running times so they should be quite reasonable. I have a number of the Hammer Derann released and it would be great to have them

Can we say "STOP! Hammer time!" [Roll Eyes]

Anyway, I hereby propose that we change the title of this topic to something like...

What, other than W&G, would you like to see released by Derann?

[Razz]

I think the views here have probably given Derann quite a good idea of peoples wants. Yes W&G is probably right at the top along with Rocky Horror.

I suppose it all comes down to what Deal can be done and what origination is available etc etc.

At least Adrian can see how positive collectors are still and the sort of titles people want to collect.

Over to you Adrian and the other guys at Derann.

Hi Jan

There seems to be enough interest in releasing a Hammer amongst collectors.

But just so I wont mention Hammer what about all those great American Internatinal Horrors

Tomb Of Ligeia
Witchfinder General
Pit & The Pendulum
Tales of Terror ideal as each story is half a hour and self contained.

Maybe Adrain and his team could release two features to make everyone happy

Chester,

afraid I have to profess ignorance as to those American horror titles you've listed - perhaps that's because I'm a German native and have only lived in the States for a decade... many a classic film of American origin around that I have not yet seen. [Eek!]

That said, I'm fairly certain that full-length super-8 prints of Witchfinder General and Pit and the Pendulum already exist. Could swear I'd seen them on eBay before.

So, Adrian, how are you getting on with obtaining the negative for Wallace & Gromit [Wink]

Just a correction on those horror releases...

WITCHFINDER GENERAL was only released heavily edited by Walton on 4 X400' so a full length print would be fantastic.

PIT AND THE PENDULUM with Vincent Price was never relased on super 8 to my knowledge. The PIT AND PENDULUM you are seeing is actually a Chris Lee German film called THE BLOOD DEMON which was released by Mountain Films. It's actually quite good though.

A vincent Price AIP film would be AMAZING indeed. i was told When MASQUE of the RED DEATH was released on super 8, that Deraan did have a negative for another V.P. Release...of a british AIP film.....the other being TOMB OF LIGEIA. Too bad it never materialized..would be amazing! In scope of course.

Hey, if we're gonna go Italian, how about a Bruno Bozzetto feature? That man is a genius when it comes to cartoon animation... and he made a wonderful feature film called Vip, mio fratello superuomo (VIP - My superman brother). Gawd, if I could have that on super-8... I'd be in heaven...!

Hi everyone.

Just to comment about the Hammer horrors.

'Scars of Dracula', still rates as our most successful 8mm release EVER.
It was one of Dads favourite Hammer films.

Thanks for the massive response. I have started with some enquiries, but if anybody knows of anyone with a good collection of 35mm films ..... please let me know.

Kind regards

Adrian

Chester,

two episodes from "Tales of Terror" were already released in the 1980's - I think by Perry's Movies: "The Black Cat" and "Morella".

Jan,

I have seen at least two 16mm prints of "Vip, mio fratello superuomo" (in German language of course) on eBay Germany over the years. As your Eiki seems to be hungry for more film, and you speak German, this should be an option for you - shouldn't it?

Chip, you're more than welcome to shoot that Quicktime movie off your computer screen with some color negative stock, then providing us with positive prints [Roll Eyes]

Eberhard, wow, I didn't know 16mm prints of VIP existed. Yeah, the German dub is how I know the film back from when I caught it on TV (and taped it). Sure, if I come across it on eBay.de then I might not mind buying it... although to be honest I still prefer collecting films in English, otherwise I'm the only one who can enjoy them! (My wife doesn't speak German!)
