    Excellent!

    I hope they have the whole Corman/Poe-(ish) canon in their sights.

    I'd also love to see some later Price AIP classics, such as Scream & Scream Again and Madhouse.

    I saw an HD broadcast of Scream... on Monsters HD a few years back - looked great!

    Fantastic stuff! I'm glad they're including the mutilated AIP version of Witchfinder General as an extra, I've only ever seen the original and I'm curious to see how the alterations affect the film.

    I'm in on this set as well. I'd be okay if they included the non-Price, Roger Corman Poe pictures as well!

    Shout/Scream continue to be on an insanely amazing track record this year!

    effing A, Shout continues to amaze with what they are getting (or raiding) from the mines at MGM, would have liked to seen a complete Corman/Poe set, but this will do nicely as a start of what i hope will be a second Price set,

    The Raven
    Tales of Terror
    Tomb of Ligeia
    Last Man on Earth
    Phibes Rises Again


    if Shout anounces next that they are doing Jack Hill / Pam Greir films, it will officaly be one of the coolest years for blu ray (ahem) Coffy

    I already have his last collection. Pretty hard to double dip on this one unless they have the one that was non-anamorphic.

    Arrow UK will be releasing a well-supplemented HOUSE OF USHER this summer, too.

    Dana, don't forget PREMATURE BURIAL as part of the Corman/Price/Poe cannon.

    This is great news. Especially considering that the old MGM DVD of PIT AND THE PENDULUM had motion artifacts which detracted from the image.

    I hope that Shout's disc of PIT will include the rare Corman-shot "prologue" that was used to lengthen the running time on NBC.

    PREMATURE BURIAL has been a favorite of mine since, well, a very very tender age.

    And don't forget COMEDY OF TERRORS.

    Would buy any of the above on BD.

    Also hoping for "Theatre of Blood" (1973) as well.

    This is Scream Factory's best announcement yet. THE ABOMINABLE DR. PHIBES and WITCHFINDER GENERAL, especially, are a lot of fun!

    this announced release has 7 titles in it, the ones suggested for the follow up only has 5 listed, so yes definately room for growth, but it looks like the "Midnight Movies" are finaly getting some respect.

    yes i know i left Premature Burial off of that because well Ray Miland is not Vincent Price,

    If it was a Corman/Poe/Price set then it falls in because of Corman/Poe at least in my mind

    I'm up for this.

    My vote for the second Phibes film, too.

    I'll buy these for sure. Great news. I guess my MGM 'Midnight Movies' featuring the Price films will soon be worthless.

    Lest we forget THE OBLONG BOX, long one of my favorites ever since I saw it on the first half of an immortal double bill with THE WRECKING CREW.

    I wonder if this set will be part of Shout!'s new Scream Factory line, though it doesn't say that in the Facebook post. The stuff from Scream Factory seems to be priced a little more moderately than Shout!, which would be great.

    Bryan, it may be time for us to start selling our Midnight Movies of these titles. Not so easy for me to do though without knowing what extras, if any, are being carried over. Decisions, decisions.

    I'd love to have The Comedy of Terrors in ever growing collection, it's a very funny movie, as Vincent Price is a very good comedian.
