DVD PETITION CAMPAIGN!

From the man who created the immensely successful DVD campaign for 'The Return of the Living Dead' comes THREE more opportunities for horror fans to grab a hold of the studio heads and make 'em listen!

Yes, Michael Allred has decided to tempt the hands of fate yet again (and stretch out his patience even further) to help bring three quality films to DVD for the first time ever. We're asking you for your help (much as we did last time which you did and we thank you for that.) The how's and when's (and if's) are entirely up to you of course but we sincerely hope that you'll consider mentioning these DVD campaigns on your web site. Whether it be a few paragraphs or a few sentences, we'd be extremely grateful.

The DVD campaigns are for the following three movies;


Return of the Living Dead: Part 2

As we all know, the first and third films in the series are already available on DVD yet #2 is strangely absent. Many fans have been clamoring for a release so they can own all the films of the series.

Part 2 has much more in common with the first film than #3, even bringing back some of the same actors. No, it's not a 'great' film but certainly worthy of a DVD release. Since Michael knows one of the cast members, James Karen, he can confirm he'd participate in an audio commentary track.

Michael has created a small web page that has collected a few ways for people to get Warner Bros. to release it on DVD from phone/fax numbers, mailing address and even an on-line petition. This is one of those 80's horror flicks that major studios like WB often ignore until enough people bug them for a release.

Here is the URL for that site;

Memoirs of an Invisible Man

To date, this is the ONLY feature film by John Carpenter that has never been released on DVD(!) We all know of his beautifully framed widescreen shots and having been reduced to watch it 'panned & scanned' all these years is a travesty.

Many people want to have a 'John Carpenter collection' but again, it's a small flick owned by Warner Brothers. Carpenter doesn't have as much 'pull' as he used to but if they're aware of the fanbase and of how much they want this film on DVD, they may very well do it (even if it's a featureless disc.)

A small web page has been created and is filled with contact information for WB here;

The Resurrected

The second and last film directed by Dan O'Bannon (who wrote/directed the first 'Return of the Living Dead' as well as writing 'Alien'.) 'The Resurrected' is based on a story by famed author H.P Lovecraft and is considered by many to be the most faithful film adaptation of his work.

Dan O'Bannon told Michael that he'd like to re-cut the film since the version we have seen was NOT his cut but the producers (almost everything was changed from his original vision.) Artisan owns this title and if enough people chime in, they might finally allow fans to see the film how it was originally intended. Michael knows Dan and as soon as Artisan is convinced to release this, he can put them in touch with one another and get this project going!

He has created a small web page that collects all manner of contact information so people can ask Artisan to release this little gem on DVD.

Here is the URL for that site;

Ok, there you have it. *ANY* space you'd give to these campaigns would be greatly appreciated. You helped out before with the campaign for the first 'Return of the Living Dead' and look at the support! Not only did MGM release it but *with* features. I know *for a fact* that MGM took notice of the fan support so these things DO work!

So let's do it again and see what we can accomplish!

Thanks to Michael Allred for the information.
