The Midnite Movies that became... ordinary. O_O



Wauw, what a fucking discovery! It's just dawned on me that out of the 16 titles in MGM's Midnite Movies line four of them were VHS only releases! [check the complete list here] When MGM released them on DVD they changed the covers to ordinary MGM covers. I have absolutely no idea as to why they did that! The four titles are PAJAMA PARTY, FROGS, BURN WITCH BURN, and A BUCKET OF BLOOD. So if you've been looking for those on DVD there's your reason as to why you still haven't found them. LOL. Such informative and important information you get on this blog, ay! Yeah!! Now we can finally go and live happy lives like real people again (I'm sure this has been bugging you for years!).




PS: and I just ordered the DVD version of FROGS from Amazon UK. The DVD was £1.15!!! That's just under two dollars. The postage was slightly more expensive than the DVD, haha. I already have the film on an old video tape. It's such a horror masterpiece. xD


And one more that I missed initially as it's not on my original list at all! Thanks to Jayson for the info:

  5. I just did a quick Amazon check and it seems MGM didn't release BURN WITCH BURN on DVD at all! Midnite Movies line or not. The only DVD seems to be the UK release under the aka title NIGHT OF THE EAGLE.
