    Quoted from japespin:

    Cool, I'll try that. Thanks. Did you rent or buy?

    You can download to a device in the Vimeo app whether you rent or buy. I just rented it to make sure it worked OK.
    Here is some info about how to do it if you need it:

    I bought it. Not sure if that matters. I had never used Vimeo before this

    Quoted from japespin:

    Does anyone know if Vimeo allows for local download of a movie rental?

    They have a section on their website dedicated to questions about their service: https://help.vimeo.com/hc/en-us

    Same here and it played just fine on the Vimeo app on my TV, no buffering issues.

    I'll still buy the DVD though so I can loan it to people.

    #55 2 years ago

    Would an eventual DVD release include any bonus features or just the movie proper?

    #56 2 years ago

    We're planning on releasing a Blu Ray version with bonus features. Working out what they'll be right now.
    Would you guys be interested in some extra gameplay footage of the Rob Zombie whitewood?

    maybe a followup interview? now that AMH and RZ are pretty much done.

    #58 2 years ago

    Wanted to thank Tommy and Taylor of This Flippin' Podcast for their review of the film. We're really glad you enjoyed it!

    To help celebrate their 'Epic' 50th Podcast, we're giving away a Vimeo code for a free copy of the "Things That Go Bump".
    Details to win are revealed in the podcast.

    Watched it today awesome Documentary $5 Australian bargain

    #63 2 years ago

    Bump. Just because the trailer has Bryan Kelly saying what I was thinking.

    Always cool to document history and a great underdog story.

    #64 2 years ago

    Any update on when the physical copy will be available? Would love to on a bluray when it comes out.

    Congrats to everyone involved, this was a really inspiring and well done documentary.

    Very small error I noticed (I am a big geek) was that the Godzilla movie shown was not "Destroy All Monsters". The movie shown is 1969 "All Monster's Attack" which is sometimes called "Godzilla's Revenge". I know this because the monster he is facing, Gabara, is never found in any other Godzilla movie. The fight scenes are technically a dream of the little boy who is the main character. Gabara shares the name of the school bully. I know, TMI. Really want a spooky Godzilla pinball game...

    Yep, I got Destroy All Monsters stuck in my head somehow. It's fixed for the Blu-Ray and I'll update the Vimeo file when I have time to render it out overnight. Toho really made a LOT of Godzilla films!

    #73 2 years ago

    I wish this was on Amazon - I'd hate to sign up for a vimeo account and add my credit card info to watch one thing. For spooky though it might be worth it.

    Working on getting the film on Amazon Video Direct right now. They require having closed captions, which I haven't done before. Hopefully, I'll be able to make an announcement in the next couple of days.

    #76 2 years ago

    Bought it and watched it last night. What a wonderful story about genuine people. I hope to own a spooky game one day!

    #77 2 years ago

    Working on getting the Blu Ray disc finalized. The closed captioning isn't cooperating so it might not be included.
    On a brighter note, the Blu Ray will include 2 exclusive videos. The Rob Zombie Spookshow International whitewood tour and gameplay by Charlie and a more in-depth discussion about how the Domino's game was conceived and executed.

    Wow, you guys are quick! Yep, it's up on Amazon now - with Closed Captions. They worked surprisingly well when I was watching it last night to test it out. Thanks again to everybody that's helped support the film!

    #83 2 years ago

    Does Spooky get more money if we buy? I hope so! I bought it with that intent A great watch. I'm going to encourage my wife to watch it also. Seeing a family make pinballs might help her appreciate my crazy hobby a little more.

    Very glad you enjoyed the film! Dana and I are not a part of Spooky Pinball. We ARE big fans of their podcast and the way they do business, however. When the idea for doing this film struck me back in June 2015, everything you read about pinball companies on Pinside seemed like bad news. I thought Spooky's story was incredible and really deserved to be told.

    We weren't 100% sure if we could pull off a full length film. I wasn't sure I had the skill to do it, having never worked on a project like this. We didn't announce the film during the first year of working on it, in case it crashed and burned and I couldn't get it together. It wasn't made to make money. I just felt like I HAD to do it and I'd be kicking myself if I didn't at least give it a shot. It DID take quite a bit of convincing. "Why would anybody want to make a movie about us??", we heard more than once.

    We're incredibly grateful to Chuck and Kayte and everyone that lent a hand in bringing this movie to life. Their dream was to build pinball machines, ours was to make a film - Team Spooky helped make that a reality and we can't thank them enough.

    #85 2 years ago

    Good movie! Success story well told.

    Maximum respect for doing this old school and bootstrapping your way to the goal, instead of the usual collecting money at the start and sad excuses for why it's taking forever while you blow through the money. Just like the respect Spooky earned.

    I wonder if there's a way for you to do some sort of "reverse Kickstarter" where you could put some "value added" packages together for sale, for higher price, for those of us who want to support this and you.

    Maybe it's too late this time 'round, but something to consider for a future project.

    Not possible to watch via Amazon in Germany

    #90 2 years ago

    Spooky makes great pinball games. I hate I sold my RZ LE a couple months ago. But at least today I got The jetsons. That makes up for it. The documentary was fun too. The american dream. Good for them.

    I watched the documentary this morning on Amazon. It was fantastically done. Thank you for the hard work that went into that.

    Nooooooooo!

    But at least the captions were on Amazon (which was a big help to me). Great work on your documentary. Charlie and Family/Company answered a bunch of ?s didn't get a chance to ask during my all too brief visit to Benton (and a few I did ask too).

    Will def get a copy of the DVD if there are captions... if not, oh well!

    #95 2 years ago
    Quoted from joelreeves:

    What?!

    No "alternate ending" with a cautionary "what if Spooky did not go to Texas?" showing Charlie living in a box under a bridge and only emerging at night as "The Phantom of Pinball" (or some equally pinball inspired monster)!

    Glad it all worked out, but that might be kind of funny if done tastefully and obviously tongue-in-cheek (like the alternate 'My Name is Earl' where he goes bad instead of good after winning the lottery).

    #96 2 years ago

    Just streamed it on Amazon and thought it was well done, interesting, and I learned a lot I didn't know before. Kinda makes me want to move to Benton. I grew up in a small town here in California much like that, but sadly it's nothing like that today.

    Sorry again about the CC's. I've tried five different ways to get it to work and it won't cooperate. But, glad they're on Amazon if needed.
    I just need to get these Blu Rays out the door before folks completely lose interest. ; )

    Very glad you and danisme enjoyed the film. I've heard several people react that they'd like to move to Benton.
    I hear housing can be a little hard to come by, but i think they're opening a new division near Spooky HQ.

    #98 2 years ago

    Bought the documentary on Vimeo and watched it yesterday.
    I really enjoyed it. A great documentary about a true success story. Positive and inspiring!

    Constructive criticism (for the next movie!) would be that sound, lighting and some of the post work could do with a bit more love, but for a first full-length effort it is very well done!

    All in all, highly recommended. Thanks for creating it!

    #99 1 year ago

    I watched it with my wife, it was a touching, honest and very interesting documentary. The spooky family have a huge amount to be proud of. Looking forward to part 2 in a few years...

    Rented this on Amazon over the weekend. Fun & inspiring subject!! Makes me feel even better about my TNA pre-order, as I'm glad to help support this family owned & operated growing business!
