Scream Factory has been releasing a pretty steady amount of hits when it comes to releasing some genuinely great (and most of the time, beloved) long lost, out of print or just fan favorite films from the ’70s/’80s and all of the way up to films of today.

While most genre fans might pass on this one, it’s an interesting release from a company that always has some nifty tricks up their sleeves, even if said tricks is releasing one of the most confusingly studio-tampered films of all time.
