I may just end up complaining every six months about Cast a Deadly Spell and Witch Hunt.

Does ANYBODY KNOW why these movies aren’t available on DVD?  They put everything on DVD these days.  Is there a lawsuit, an estate problem, a vendetta involving the Bavarian Illuminati and the Priory of Sion?  What, in point of fact, gives?

PS: Background here.  Basically, Cast a Deadly Spell and Witch Hunt are two HBO pictures that mashed up noir and Call of Cthulhu, and did a damned better job at them than anybody’s reasonable expectations.  I want to own these films.  I don’t have a VHS player anymore. That doing the first would involve changing the second annoys me.




Get “Cast a Deadly Spell” and “Witch Hunt” on DVD, dagnabbit.

I wish to give the people who own these properties money for a DVD copy.
Mon-ey.

Several years ago I noted for the record:

It is downright criminal that [Witch Hunt] and its prequel (Cast a Deadly Spell) are only available on VHS.

I still stand by that statement.

PS: …What? Oh, it’s H.P. Lovecraft meets Raymond Chandler. And the first part was not implicit in any way, shape, or form.
