|Vipco's 2002 UK DVD.|
"Extras" include one of those garbage Stills Gallery where they just take screenshots from the same low-quality transfer that's on the disc and put ugly boarders around them. There are also bonus trailers for a couple other Vipco Screamtime Collection titles, but not Spookies' actual trailer. Oh, and yeah there's a more recent German DVD from Intergroove under the name Evil Spookies, but it's the same, barebones, fullscreen crap as ever.
on record as being interested in putting one together. You could have a restored Spookies looking amazing, plus the original Twisted Souls cut and a whole bunch of interviews, commentary, etc. For a while, fans were assuming this was an upcoming release from Drafthouse Films, but no offense if I'm mistaken here, but I think they're out of the home video business now. They've had no releases yet this year, nothing announced, they canceled their subscription service and their social media's pretty quiet. But check out that VHS cover on the left (courtesy of the Spookies article on Horrorpedia.com). That's not the one my video stores used to have, but look who put out that version - could this be an upcoming release in the terrific Vestron line? That would be amazing; although I'm not so sure they still have the rights. So it's up to anybody from Scream Factory to Code Red to step in and save the day. Come on, fellas, who's it gonna be?
