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.
