      Ben,

      I've kept track of you a long time. 2012 on. Manos, Monstrosity, Hamlet. No one has ever fought for B movies this strongly. The years between projects, the aim towards perfection, the involvement of performers and their families. This dedication is never absent. You preserve the films and their history. As one who loves The Hands of Fate and The Atomic Brain, I'm grateful beyond words.

      Now that Montrosity and Hamlet are done. I await the next project and wish you all the best. In all ways. Pardon my passion in the past and may your future be bright.

      Respectfully,

      Bruce

      How do I get my pin and the download of TAB?
      Thanks!

      Wonderful typos.

      Ben,

      Hamlet (1961) is now on Vimeo as of July 13, 2018. When will we receive emails allowing us access to this as backers?

      Thanks so much and apologies on the annoyance.

      Sincerely,

      Bruce

      P.S. Here's the link to Hamlet (1961) to those interested.

      Hi Ben,

      I realize I mention this rather late in the game, but I never received anything apart from the Monstrosity download link: no Blu-ray, no poster, no pin. Is it too late to do anything about it?

      Thanks.

    6. Bruce Pullen on

      Ben. Anything new on the German Hamlet (1961) download?

    7. Jason Tingley on

      Hello Atomic Brain Team -
      Received my blu ray quite some time ago but have yet to receive the Poster + pin. Any updates on this? Some folks seem to have the opposite problem. $50 is a lot to pledge and not receive all parts-- thanks for the help!

    8. Bruce Pullen on

      Ben. What's the latest on the German Hamlet (1961) download?

      I got the poster and pin some time ago, but still no sign of the DVD.

      Pledged $35 and never got the $25 rewards. Sent a direct message a month ago, but no reply. I originally only pledged due to a friend's involved in the project, so no big deal I guess.

      @Matt I really wanna know that too :O I hope it's not the case

      I'm not 100% I ever received the e-mail, but I suppose it's likely I did but it was in my junk folder and I had purged it around the time the digital versions where going out.

      If I did delete it am I just shit out of luck?

    13. Alex Smith on

      I never got the physical copy of the movie, I know this is pretty late to the game, but I had completely forgotten about this until I was going through my emails and saw that you gave an update back in November.

      I did just download the digital file on Vimeo so I am very stoked to watch the movie!

      Hope all is well

    14. Nicolaj 'Chico' Klitbo on

      I never got my pin either. Hopefully it's not lost in the mail.

    15. Sal Bacarella on

      Have never received my pin.

    16. Ben Solovey 2-time creator on

      Hi Tyler- that's definitely not right. If you could message me directly and confirm your current address, I'll have replacements sent your way.

    17. Bruce Pullen on

      For those wanting spares, Ben placed the remaining Blu spares of Monstrosity (1963) on Amazon.

    18. Tyler Jennes on

      Has anyone else not gotten their Blu Ray, poster, or pin yet? Because it's been like almost three months and I've got nothing besides the digital download.

    19. Brandon Richardson on

      Got my pin and poster today. Looking at the tracking number I'm baffled at how it could take a month to get from TN to VA, but it showed up intact.

    20. Bruce Pullen on

      Seconded Paul. Thanks for the link.

    21. Ben Solovey 2-time creator on

      Nicolaj- message me with your current address to confirm it and I'll send you a replacement.

    22. Nicolaj 'Chico' Klitbo on

      I still haven't received my pin, if it was sent out over Christmas then it might have been my postal service losing it. It happened with another package at least.

    23. Ben Solovey 2-time creator on

      Hey Jeffrey- every time mass emails are employed for deliverables, there's always a risk of them accidentally falling into your spam folder. When I send out the links for "Hamlet", you'll get another chance to download "Atomic Brain", and I'll make an announcement beforehand so you can be ready.

      I haven't gotten the Atomic Brain download link... Have those gone out and I just missed it?
      Thanks...

    25. Brandon Richardson on

      Still haven't gotten my poster and pin. At least 4 months since I got my bluray.

    26. Kevin R. on

      Haven't gotten an email pertaining either to the downloads of Monstrosity or what I'm really curious about - Hamlet. Thanks again.

    27. Ben Solovey 2-time creator on

      Replacements for missing pins and posters are now going out. If you haven't gotten a message from me to that effect by now, let me know so I don't miss anyone.

    28. Brandon Richardson on

      I still haven't gotten my pin and poster. Messaged two weeks ago and haven't heard back.

    29. Nicolaj 'Chico' Klitbo on

      Hey Ben,
      I might have missed the mail or message with a download link. Is there any way to get the download?

      Thank you, Ben. Despite delays and such, you came through, and I for one am grateful and very happy. I wish I could say the same for a certain CREEP-y film and their campaign of a few years ago, but the next time you have one of these, I'll double my amount to your campaign...gladly!

      Cheers! :)

      Thanks Ben.

      I have received everything (in Singapore) and it's all in good working order - really appreciate the effort you made with this project, look forward to others in the future!

    33. Kier Sinclair on

      Sorry, I meant haven't had the download link.

    34. Kier Sinclair on

      Hello, I received the poster and pin about a month ago but haven't had the dvd. How long should I wait?

      Kevin on

      How about giving backers who paid for it the download link? Thanks!

    36. Brandon Richardson on

      Got my Blu-ray a while back but still no pin or poster and no news on the downloads. What gives?

      Mr. Ben,

      My BluRay arrived cracked. I’ve sent you a PM regarding this. Anything y’all can do to help?

      Just got my pin today. I'm actually shocked at how cool it looks, so good job there. I'm glad this project made it through and is coming to fruition.

      I too am wondering about the downloadable version, and to be honest, even more-so the digital version of Hamlet. Any word on that?

      Hello, just received my DVD/Pin/Poster-all look great. Awaiting delivery of my DVD player before I watch!
      What is the status of Hamlet? Honestly, I backed just to get a copy of that version of Hamlet (as it will complete my MST3k Original Series movie collection). What is the anticipated timeline for its availability. Thank you, hope I don't sound too much like a nag.

    42. Chris Kelley on

      I just received my pin today. Are there any updates on the downloadable 1080p version? It looks like most updates have centered around the blu-ray release.

    43. Jason Tingley on

      Ohio here, still awaiting poster/ pin. Looks like others have arrived so hopefully we'll see them soon out here :)

    44. Ben Wink on

      Poster and pin arrived! Already snagged a frame for it to get the poster up next to the Manos one.

      Got my poster and pin, which along with the Blu-ray, are terrific! Awaiting the download info. :)

    46. Kevin R. on

      ^Grammar, like Yoda, is.

    47. Kevin R. on

      @Bruce et al - I'm thinking that even though the feature itself is relatively short, having both the open matte as well as formatted versions on one disc might have played a part, as well as the delays, cost overruns, etc. It's a 25GB single-sider and the open-matte version is already a bit more compressed than the feature is with the preferred formatting. Bit-rate is fine for the main feature, giving relatively how little motion is in-frame there is, Adding the documentary would probably start to cut into that, though.

    48. Kevin R. on

      Got my physical goodies - BooBooRay, USB stick and poster.:)

      Is the 'Hamlet' download still in the works? If you're stumped for options, quite a few KSers distribute content through VHX, using download codes.

    49. Michael Gilstrap on

      Got the poster and pin
