So many I remember from the 70's I'd love to own on DVD - "Bad Ronald", "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark", "Cage Without a Key", "Dawn, Portrait of a Teenage Runaway", "When Michael Calls", "Hey, I'm Alive".

I know quite a few have been released - "Gargoyles", "Born Innocent", "Trilogy of Terror". This needs to continue.

I'm surprised "Rich Man, Poor Man" hasn't hit DVD yet.

I loved ABC Movie of the Week but no, I don't remember that theme or it being on Fridays. Here's the theme that I remember so well:

"When Michael Calls" was released on DVD. However, it was retitled "Shattered Silence" and the picture quality is quite poor. Netflix carries it.

I'd love to see the TV movies "The Screaming Woman" (1972), "The Chill Factor" (aka "A Cold Night's Death"/1973), "Amber Waves" (1980), and "Don't Go To Sleep" (1982) on DVD.

I'd love to see some of the disaster movies they made; The Fire Next Time, Ice, Fire on the Mountain ... there were several made that haven't been released to DVD.

I just ordered a couple made for TV Movies free at Columbia House (Funcash). One I never heard of...

Bay Cove (1987)
(A.K.A. - Bay Coven, Eye of the Demon, Strangers in Town, The Devil of Bay Cove)
Starring:
Pamela Sue Martin (Nancy Drew)
Tim Matheson
Woody Harrelson
When a couple moves to the quiet and peaceful community of Bay Cove, they welcome the town’s centuries old charm. But something dark lurks in the shadows. They discover the townsfolk are member’s of a deadly witch’s coven and are awaiting the reincarnation of their leader!

And I also ordered a TV Show Reunion Movie...

Get Smart Again (1989)
Starring:
Don Adams
Barbara Feldon
Bernie Kopell
The sinister forces of KAOS, the international agency of dastardly foes, have stolen the free world’s number one secret weapon, an incredible weather-altering machine! There is only one man who can help the world now, and he is primed once again to do battle!

I don't remember ever watching either of these back in the lat 80's so it will be interesting to check out. Posted Image

Yep, RMPM has been out in R2 since '03. Be aware that the xfr quality isn't too good on this set.
