As you may have noticed, our combo releases of EMBODIMENT OF EVIL and THE DORM THAT DRIPPED BLOOD have been delayed slightly. I figured I’d better get on here and give the explanation.
With EMBODIMENT OF EVIL, we had a ridiculous amount of subtitle issues on this title. Subtitles are no stranger to Synapse releases but, for whatever reason, there were countless errors in timing, spelling, etc. that had us going back and forth with the subtitling company for many weeks trying to get issues resolved. Also, we press our discs overseas and, because of Chinese New Year, there was an additional wait because of the plant closing for many days. Because of these delays, the title was not able to make street date. The good news is that the issues have been fixed and the title is currently at the pressing facility and our copies will be shipped to the warehouse any day now.
With THE DORM THAT DRIPPED BLOOD, we decided to push the title back a bit so it wouldn’t clash with EMBODIMENTS new date. Also, the authoring company got the discs to us when they could, but I was sent to LA on business and that forced me to wait for almost three weeks before I could properly QC the discs. I have started my final checking and, as is the usual with first rounds of check discs, there are small issues that need to be addressed before I am comfortable signing off on the project (This is pretty common. In 15 years, I don’t think I’ve EVER had a first round of check discs be exactly right.). Nothing major… just standard menu issues and little things that need fixing. I hope to have everything done by next week and, once done, the title is ready to go to press.
This all being said, EMBODIMENT OF EVIL and THE DORM THAT DRIPPED BLOOD are now up for pre-order on our webstore or, if you prefer, you can get them from any number of online stores, such as AMAZON.COM, DEEPDISCOUNTDVD.COM and DIABOLIKDVD.COM.
We appreciate all your support and patience. The titles will be released soon!
