Yea, there are definately some masterpieces on that page. About the bootlegging of these particuliar titles I not against it. Copyright laws are made to promote creativity, and free enterprise, and in this case the continuing distribution of these desired products. It is not designed for films to be buried or hidden from the public, so if they have forgotten about, or are ashamed of, or the rights are in dispute then let those who have copies make a couple dollars by getting them to the public till the owners step forward and provide access for the public with their copyrighted idea.

Once and idea is born it belongs to the world. A patent or copyright is only an insentive to develope and distribute it to the public which also helps the economic growth of a nation.  This law is in place to make it worthwhile for the inventor/artist who puts time and effort into something.

They might want to hold on to it for a little while till word gets out, but then they should deliver. Many of these films have been out of circulation for decades. The laws give way to much time for those who just bury or sit on their inventions or other creative works.

(If they aren't going to do anything with it then they really don't have rights over it. Just my opinion of course.)

yea I'm with you on this one. I got a buddy that made copies of Toxic Zombies. Suddenly he gets an email from some company called Jeff Films that apparently owned the rights. Turns out this company made horrible DVDs of the flick (even worse than a faded VHS) and to top it off their DVDs have been out of print for years as if they made 10 DVDs and quit. Bad Ronald was another flick my buddy made copies of. Turns out Warner Brothers owned the rights for years and has never done anything with it. The only way to get that movie legitimatley is by looking for an extinct  overpriced VHS now. It's a real shame. If these companies actually made use of their copyright ownership, we'd have a perfect world.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
