really hope WB Archive does not let us horror fans down in October. There are so many more genre titles in their vaults waiting to be released (Night School, Two on a Guillotine, The Awakening, Murder by Phone, The Pack, Deadly Eyes...to name some) and I know that I'm not alone in wanting to own them.  PLEASE do not let us down WB!

I would rather pay for a region 1 set of Mr Terrific than the one sold in Germany.

Who has the rights to the show Midnight Caller with Gary Cole?  Would love to see this released in any form..and since I'm, on Gary Cole...why the hell is Son of the Morning Star not out on DVD, who has that? 

I'm for any obscure short lived TV shows on the archive..

I believe the rights to SON OF THE MORNING STAR are held by Lionsgate.

There are some good horror titles in the Allied Artists library, such as THE HYPNOTIC EYE, that would be fun to see released for Halloween.  Ditto some Warner library titles, such as PHANTOM OF THE RUE MORGUE and TWO ON A GUILLOTINE.  If FROM HELL IT CAME sold well, hopefully the Archives will pick other titles from the Allied Artists library.  I'm tempted to add MACABRE as a request, but it's not really a fun picture.

 As FROM HELL IT CAME is one of the Archive's Hot Sellers, I expect we'll see more Allied Artists titles:

Well, perhaps more cult genre films.  Allied Artists didn't make just renegade zombie-tree films!

I'd like to see the Allied Artists picture THE DESERT RAVEN, although it appears to be more "western noir" than horror or mystery.  I've never seen that film.

I'd also like THE COUCH (1962, Warner), which was a Blake Edwards adaptation of horror scribe Robert Bloch's book.

MACABARE might be a good release, given that sony is releasing a William Castle box shortly before Halloween.

Also included with these films is Season 1 of the 11th Hour, the first TV show in the Archive for $35.
Its a bit disappointing that a Garland film is in the archive as I thought there was going to be a Garland promotion with the unreleased Garland films on pressed DVD when A Star Is Born is released in blu-ray next year.

I too am disappointed about Everybody Sing in the Archives, but since the Blu-ray release of The Wizard of Oz and the other three films have actors that also appeared in The Wizard of Oz, it seems the WA is haveing a bit of promotional fun.  I still have hope for the remainder of Garland's films to hit a box set and her Hardy pictures also get a pressed box set in a Hardy Family Collection.

I am VERY dissapointed (and surprised) that there are no horror titles in this new wave. This is the month to do it and Warner has plenty of content to post so this seems like a no-brainer.

I am not sure they are finished announcing for this coming Tuesday (10/6).  They usually give about 12 to 15 titles each week and so far there are only 6.  I think the older musicals are part of a Wizard of Oz promo and since the Blu-ray was released last Tuesday, they wanted to get these titles up quickly. 

I do think we will see more titles Tuesday and I hope, along with you, we got some good horror and mystery titles coming.

Two sci-fi TV films courtesy of Gene Roddenberry are also up for pre-order at the archives. GENESIS II (1973) with Alex Cord and Mariette Hartly about a scientist who wakes up from suspended animation in the year 2133 where a battle between the good Pax and the mutant Tyranians rages and its sequel PLANET EARTH (1974) with John Saxon, Janet Margolin and Diana Muldaur about a planet ruled by women with men as slaves.

Finally, the McDoakes shorts.  I'll certainly be picking them up.  Great price for them as well.

Hopefully the Crime Does Not Pay series will follow.

You've given me hope Allen - thanks  :)  Warner is usually pretty good at delivering in that genre dept (I mean they did give us "The Twisted Terror Collection" which housed a lot of fun, obscure stuff) so I'm ready and willing to eat my words if they come through.
