Rob from Some very exciting news. As many of you will know, before 'The Evil Dead' there were nearly seventy of Super-8 Short Films made from 1969 onwards. A DVD set is in the works containing around thirteen of the earliest shorts by Bill Ward & Scott Spiegel running around an hour. This list includes;

01. Inspector Klutz Saves the Day (1969)
02. Pies & Guys (1971)
03. Corny Casanovas (1971)
04. Piece of Mind (1973)
05. For Crymin' Out Loud (1973)
06. A Night in a Sanitarium (1973)
07. Horsin’ Around (1973)
08. Loose Loot (1973)
09. Three Smart Saps (1973)
10. Booby Bartenders (1974)
12. Three Pests in a Mess (1974)
13. Home Movie Hodge-Podge (1971-1974)

While a small number have leaked out as bootlegs, and a handful released by Josh Becker, this will be the first time these specific earliest shorts have been seen. While the project is still being finalized, it should come as a single DVD, in a case with printed disc art, sleeve and a booklet with photos and text from the people involved. There may also be commentary tracks available, and the price might be $30-40. All of that is subject to change though. Each short has been transferred to DVD from S-VHS, so this is not going to be like the grainy VHS bootleg shorts we're all used to. If this first DVD does well, follow-up DVD sets containing later shorts from other members of the film-making group are possible. It would be useful to get an idea of initial numbers, so if you'd place an order, please get in touch via the email address on the website below. These will only be available via this website, nowhere else.

You can now place your order. As we're still in the duplicating phase, we expect the first batch of deliveries will take 3-4 weeks (possibly longer for signed items), then down to 1-2 weeks (depending on your location) once we get going.
