    I am pretty sure PSYCHO IV is a TV movie and if it is, I think it needs to be released on DVD, Then all the psycho movies will be on DVD.
    Regards,

    Makes you realize how crappy the networks have become since turning out these many fine t.v. movies, doesn't it? Now they do nothing but appeal to the lowest common denominator and leave all quality filmmaking to cable channels.

    HELTER SKELTER - one of the creepiest TV movies ever. Steve Railsback's take on Charles Manson is simply uncanny.

    [/i]Psycho IV[/i] was made for Showtime Television. It's not hard to tell it's a TV movie. The lighting and general cheesiness of the production pretty much give that away. It's by far the weakest film in the series, but I would buy a DVD because I'm a completist. God Bless Anthony Perkins, the man always gave his best.

    Also, don't forget the mini-series such as the following:
    [*]Roots[*]Rich Man Poor Man[*]Captains and Kings[*]Robert Kennedy[*]North and South[*]War and Remembrance[*]The Thornbirds


    Also, I echo the call for "Duel". Furthermore, another great television movie just came out in late June called "Missiles of October".

    That's part of the reason why I picked up Netforce and Joan of Arc. Both of them are great and I hope I helped to get the studios going on this to put more of them out. I think I have about 50 of them that I'd like to see.

    Yes, I can remember when TV movies were an event, and they were done well, not like the headline-of-the-month exploitation fare done now.
    I would like to stress that if and when these films are released, that they are done cleanly and by their proper licensees. After all, there are dozens of DVDs of THE BOY IN THE PLASTIC BUBBLE with John Travolta, but they are all not licensed from proper producers Spelling/Goldberg, and they're quite dismal-looking.
    I'll back up the requests for
    DUEL
    SOMETHING EVIL
    THREADS
    THE DAY AFTER
    MAZES AND MONSTERS
    ELVIS
    GO ASK ALICE
    SYBIL
    EXECUTION OF PRIVATE SLOVIK
    and let's throw in
    DAWN: PORTRAIT OF A TEENAGE RUNAWAY
    ALEXANDER: THE OTHER SIDE OF DAWN
    THE DOOMSDAY FLIGHT
    BARBARIANS AT THE GATE
    SATAN'S SCHOOL FOR GIRLS (original)
    HAUNTS OF THE VERY RICH
    FRANKENSTEIN: THE TRUE STORY
    THE DEVIL'S DAUGHTER
    THE LEGEND OF LIZZY BORDEN
    PREY FOR THE WILDCATS
    FALLEN ANGEL
    and as for miniseries, does anyone remember the comedy minieries FRESNO, with Carol Burnett, Dabney Coleman, and Charles Grodin? CBS aired it once, and I missed it!
