The MOD Quad

MOD, or manufacturing on demand, means studios and labels don’t have to press the DVD until you order it. MGM’s Limited Edition Collection and the Warner Archive Collection are the two big names in the MOD game right now, and each month they make dozens of titles available on DVD for the very first time. And The MOD Quad will take a look at as many of them as we can handle on a semi-irregular basis. Which will probably average out to some number divisible by four. Highlights this installment include Act of Vengeance, Top Banana, The Quatermass Experiment, and the little person gangster flick, Little Cigars.

Film studios have recently discovered a way to inject new life into their back catalogs without the need to spend money on marketing, retail shelf space, or overstock storage.

MOD, or manufacturing on demand, means a DVD isn’t pressed until you order it. MGM’s Limited Edition Collection is a relative newcomer to the game, but their enthusiasm has already put them at the forefront of this new distribution effort to make currently unreleased titles available for your viewing pleasure. Every month The MOD Quad will list a recent batch of releases and highlight four of them in detail. (Eric “Quint” Vespe is doing a more thorough job over at Ain’t It Cool News so be sure to check out his Vault Dweller column as well.) May’s highlights include the excellent Burn Witch Burn, the far less so Blood Bath, the fantastic character piece Harry In Your Pocket, and the implausibly cast Keaton’s Cop. (Yes, May. I’m clearly still playing catch up…) Click on the DVD cover to purchase from Amazon.

April’s highlights include The Happy Thieves, The Destructors, Old Dracula, and one of my dad’s favorites, Defiance. (The first couple installments of The Mod Quad will be playing catch-up as the DVDs arrived late, but we’ll settle into a monthly routine soon enough.)
