Disc of the Week: PHENOMENA

Synapse Films has been one of the most consistent home video labels since their inception in 1997. If you see that Synapse logo on the spine of a DVD or Blu-ray, chances are you will never see the film on the disc look or sound better and there will be a solid collection of special features included. Now they may not have the output of a Scream Factory or a Kino Lorber, but they are literally a 2 man operation. I’m fine waiting years for an anticipated title if it means that when I pick up that eventual disc, I will be hard pressed to ever need to double dip on that title again.

We just finished the first disc of PHENOMENA and the CD and are in the middle of the second, the POPCORN Blu-ray and DVD will be announcing shortly and we’re working on THE VIOLENT SHIT COLLECTION… I’d love to get those three out by the end of the year.
