Founded in 2006, and largely run by one man, Bill Olsen, Code Red DVD has been releasing quality cult and B-movie titles on DVD and Blu-ray for a decade now. Code Red is fairly well known in the Blu-ray.com forums due to the popularity of the releases and collectibility of the label.
Code Red goes above and beyond when it comes to their transfers, and also features some great extra features. They limit their releases usually to 1000 to 3000 copies, which increases their appeal to collectors, but also helps these films maintain their value.
A prominent member on the Blu-ray.com forums, Bill is outspoken and blunt about the process he goes through to release these films, and according to the wiki page, he’s even had to put his house up as collateral to keep the business going. You can find him joining in the discussions of the Code Red distributor thread where he often updates the members of new titles, release dates, or special features. He’s also gone to the crowd to decide on artwork for covers, having asked both in forums and on his Facebook page.
While the films he releases are lesser known, they are often received very well.
The Packaging – Standard Editions
Code Red’s Blu-ray releases come in standard Amaray cases with one sided artwork and art on the disc. They are typically pretty simple releases in terms of packaging, but they do have numbered spines, which collector’s love.
The Packaging – Special and Limited Editions
Code Red has a deep library of titles that include several lesser known gems, such as Pit Stop, The Vampire Night’s Orgy, Police Connection, Cut Throat’s Nine, and a slew of other cult and horror titles. Each transfer is crafted with a lot of attention to detail.
