I've been meaning to revisit Let's Scare Jessica to Death. Thankfully many of Shout"s releases have been making their way to Amazon Prime.

It's long been a favorite of mine. Don't expect it to hit a lot of traditional horror-movie beats, though, if it's one you're not that familiar with. It might best be described as a modern retelling of Carmilla in the style of a slow-burn psychological thriller, and it's more atmospheric, eerie, and sad than it is scary.

Gerry is also coming in January— wasn’t this a Miramax title? Do they have access to that cache now?

Maybe, but it's also possible Miramax's rights expired (they only handled the video releases on behalf of Thinkfilm, which didn't have a video arm) and Shout! acquired them afterwards. It's already on Amazon Prime Video with Shout! listed as the studio; no idea how long that's been the case.

I seem to remember some of Thinkfilm's releases being put out by New Line Home Video

Has there ever been a comparison between the Eureka and Shout editions of Blacula? I always assumed Eureka's would look slightly better based on label history but never read anything definitive.

I don't believe there would be much. AFAIK, the HD masters used by Eureka are the only available ones. Shout released their set 6 months after Eureka, so I'd suppose they share the same sources. Both are quite light on extras, but they differ : Eureka offers trailers, film introductions by Kim Newman + a booklet, Shout has an audio commentary by David Walker, an interview with Richard Lawson and trailers. Both releases have all their content on a single BD-50 and IBF did Eureka's encoding.
