A member of the MST3K forums decided to call EZTakes — Cinematic Titanic’s current distributor — and find out what’s been going on with the oft-delayed Oozing Skull. Also, due to the ordering blitz from deprived Joel fanboys and girls, EZTakes seemed to be in a slight bit of disarray. So, yeah, people have been a little… concerned, of late. What did he find out?
Well, the important news is that Skull should be shipping on the 8th — UPDATE: Or possibly the 10th. Basically, EZTakes isn’t used to having such a heavy demand on them. The episode was finished, then handed over to them for a quick release, and it doesn’t seem like that’s familiar or easy ground for them. So, with a little patience, you could possibly be receiving your discs in less than 1-2 weeks. An email announcement should be hitting your mailbox tonight, if you ordered the episode. If you didn’t, you’re probably a dirty commie. Like, uh, me.
