Did the Dead Next Door just get released now?

The film was made in 1985 in Super-8mm and involved uncredited Sam Raimi as one of the producers.

No it's been released on dvd/vhs before. This is the remastered version. There's a blog about the restoration process: http://www.deadnextd...blog/index.html

Picked the movie up last night and wached a bit of it. The Super 8 looks pretty darned good. Anybody know what camera they used? Can't quite ID it from the photos. And I'm assuming it was K40 stock?

Thanks.

I don't know the history of that movie. Was it all Super-8, or is it a mix of 16mm and Super-8?

I believe it's all Super 8, judging by the director's comments on his site. Haven't listened to the commentary track on the DVD or watched the making-of featurette, but will do so this weekend.

Every Super 8 afficianado should see this movie. It proves that the format is viable for feature work, especially if you're going for that '70s 16mm look.
