Slaughter High #1 Best Selling DVD!

shighuncut shighuncut2

In a win for retro slashers everywhere, SLAUGHTER HIGH (1986) is the #1 selling title at DVD Empire currently, out of all possible DVDs to buy. One of Lionsgate’s other releases this week, MY BEST FRIEND IS A VAMPIRE, is #2, proving everyone indeed loves the 80′s. With #3 being THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL, it warms the heart to know that Simon Scuddamore has beaten Keanu Reeves. Rest easy, misunderstood cult hero.

Apparently the DVD buying public at large were unfettered by the lack of special features/film transfer and opted to dip in to a little Marty Rantzen goodness anyway. And that’s a good thing – at the end of the day, it’s the film that matters.

And as much as we’ve slagged the cover art, it was neat that Lionsgate were able to add an UNCUT banner onto the packaging.

  1. Is the film uncut? I heard the R rated version was put on by mistake. Is this true?

  2. I think it’s uncut, but now Lionsgate knows they don’t have to remaster any of these or try to get widescreen prints. They’ll just copy a VHS transfer, release, and make big bucks.

    I don’t see how this is a good thing for slasher fans, except that maybe we’ll see some VHS-only flicks popping up on crappy DVDs in the future.
