Shout! Factory is a great site for fans of esoteric, hard-to-find, and/or previously unreleased physical media. I love how they offer the best version of the movies you can find anywhere, packed with loads of extra features, and with original artwork to add to the uniqueness. They are doing the Lord's work keeping films alive in the 21st century that might otherwise have been lost to time.

As a Firesign Theater fan, I always knew there were performances out there that I never heard or knew about or that they never made it onto vinyl (or whatever they didn't make it on to).
When "Box of Danger" came out, it put, into one location, all of the Nick Danger shows/albums as well as some related items.
In an era where a lot of us got rid of our turntables and potentially the records, this is a fine substitute for us to hear this again or, in some cases, for the first time.
The one aspect you discover is that although they were a well-tuned machine in the studio, the live performances are where you see their creativity. For me, the highlight was on Disc 3, with "Back From the Shadows". It may have started out as the umpteenth time they did original Nick Danger, but with the audience sometimes taking control of the performance, it was a marvelous time, caught on tape.
Some of their later Nick adventures didn't fully work, as they come off as more of an experiment or a 'demo tape' (as it were) than a strong performance, but even when Firesign Theater misses, it is still entertaining. This is the only reason it's not a five-star review.
The liner notes are informative and entertaining, especially when they present it in character, so it is not Phillip Austin talking, but Nick Danger.
The only real drawback is the packaging, in that it doesn't fit anywhere easily. But that shouldn't stop you from getting this collection. Now, if they would only release their NPR stuff from the 1980 election, I'd be a happy chappy.

I love scream factory. Always in it for the horror. Still hoping that one day we will see a Dead_Alive special edition bluray. I understand that it's probably not that easy but, nonetheless I can hope.

Shout! Factory has some of the most consistent releases out there in terms of quality, content and value. Their transfers look great, all are packed with special features, and the artwork is excellent (an added bonus is the reversible sleeves if you would prefer the original cover art). Easy 5/5. Keep it up.

I have watched many reviews for scream factory’s blu Rays online and have heard nothing but great things. I am so excited to become part of the family and watch some classic horror that I’ve never before seen!
Review by Nelise Gracht2 months ago
Shout is the best!! Selection is 2nd to none. I'd love to see the certain classic shows that have been released but not the whole series, be released (i.e. Room 222). I love everything they do though. Alot of my collection are Shout! titles. Thanks for what you do and keep it up!

Shipping price seemed a little high but I chalk that up to the included rolled poster.
Price of the Blu-ray was high as well compared to retailers with discounts. Too bad for me I wanted the poster only included in the direct order.
Would be nice if they told you your order was charged on purchase, even for preorders.

What happen to the free shipping ?
Review by Phatsuda3 months ago
I think Shout Factory comes close to Criterion and Arrow for horror/scifi releases. They have so many cult films available for fans and film collectors alike. Their release of Cronenberg's underrated RABID is definitely no exception. I think is the definitive release for the film.

Review by Gristle Umbetov3 months ago
Shout! Factory lives up to your expectations! I have ALWAYS talked about just one figure being produced from Night of the Demons and guess what?!? This company listened to my prayers and produced 3 figures now! I purchased Angela and now I am impatiently waiting for Susie and Stooge to complete the collection. If you are in need of rare collectibles, Shout! Factory is where it’s at! You will not be disappointed :)

I ordered Silent Hill on blu-ray mainly for the collectors edition poster to only find out they don't have it. Very disappointed.

These people took my money months ago for a limited preorder. Now they never sent it and said it’s out of stock. They sold
My paid for items and offered me a refund. That is insane. I have every Neca set from them and will not be coming back. They were very stern and not helpful in resolving this problem which is WRONG. Period
