This website is for all dedicated adult horror/sci-fi fans who simply cannot afford to buy their favorite horror/sci-fi films over and over just to get the best release. Many of us have purchased what we had hoped at the time was the ultimate version of our favorite films only to discover that a few months later there was a better version already available. Then, because the distributors have only a limited number of copies for sale, all of the copies are bought up quickly and that edition then goes into OOP status before we have a chance to purchase it. The final outrage is that some of the people that buy these films then re-sell them on eBay for outrageous prices because they know they cannot be bought anywhere else and it is the struggling fan that loses out in the end.
Try as we might, there is no way for us to cover every version here at SpookyFlix, so we try to procure the best releases that we can. It is our hope that in the end you will be able to make an informed purchase so you can get the actual physical copy, if it is not OOP, which is going to look far better than the encodes here and plus you get all the extras that come with each release. (Booklets, posters, interviews, featurettes, etc..) Also, you will be supporting the companies that make/remaster the films so that they can continue to do so. That is the most important part!
All films presented here are 1080p and include stereo OR surround sound and audio commentary tracks if they are available. The video codec used – H.264 or MPEG-4 Part 10, Advanced Video Coding (MPEG-4 AVC) – is compatible with 99% of the devices out there. No subscription service is needed to watch them – play them from almost ANYWHERE on almost ANY DEVICE that supports the MP4 container. All either have an English audio track and/or English subtitles available. The posts are meant to be representative of the disc to the best of the codec’s ability at a certain size. There may be some films that have some pixelated areas or a few artifacts. These anomalies will not prevent you from making a decision on whether you want to purchase the disc or not. We are not trying to give you flawless copies – buy the disc for that.
There are many films here listed as “4K”. These copies are not in actual 4k resolution – they are films that were remastered in 4K and then sized down to 1080p. We have no films listed here that are higher than 1080p in resolution. These copies are meant to give you an idea of how much better the remaster is so you will buy the disc. They DO NOT do the 4k remasters justice since it is nearly impossible to make a MicroHD file that is perfect when using them for source. You will often find some pixelated areas in them that you will not find on the disc if you buy it.
The YouTube video samples that are included in many, not all, of the posts are in 1080p HD. The sample videos are not pixel for pixel reproductions but they will give you a good idea of the quality of the films. Sometimes you will run into a video where the audio being played is the commentary track. This is because in cases where there are multiple audio tracks of multiple formats, their transcoder will favor the stereo track over a mono or surround track no matter what the contents are. The samples are made by us for visual quality checks only and we do not always pick a good scene from the film because we try not to spoil too much. Use the “Sample” tag to find the films that have sample clips. [EDIT] The clips are slowly being phased out for numerous reasons.
Subtitles are included if available. If they do not come with the release then all efforts are made to get them from other sources.
The information provided for each film is obtained from the IMDB listing for each film. The posters used for the films are picked at random for their looks and usually, but not always, match the version of the film that is posted.
“Video Nasty” designation does not necessarily mean it was an actual “Video Nasty”. These video releases were not brought before the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) due to a loophole in film classification laws that allowed videos to bypass the review process. As a result, this produced a glut of potentially censor-able video releases, which led to public debate concerning the availability of these films to children due to the unregulated nature of the market. Some passed without edits – some did not. Some were prosecuted – some were not. All were controversial.
