Guys;


I think this topic has been around before, but which tv movies (especially the scary ones) from the seventies (and maybe eighties) do you wish would show up on DVD?


As for myself, I'd like to see:

Escape (with Christopher George)

Experiment X (with Henry Jones)

Howling in the Woods (with Barbara Eden)

Murder Can Hurt You (I know its on youtube, but I want it on digital)


Hmm. I know there are more? the WB Archives have done an outstanding job getting some titles out for us, but I'd like to see more studios put out their B and C titles.  I'm glad Search/Probe came out, but there still are a few more, I'd like to see out. Did Trilogy of Terror made it out?

Not a scary one, but as a big fan of What's My Line, and Dorothy Kilgallen, I would like to see"Breakfast with Les and Bess" released on DVD.

Chameleon (1998) - stars Bobbie Phillips

Chameleon II: Death Match (2000) - stars Bobbie Phillips

Chameleon III: Dark Angel (2000) - stars Bobbie Phillips

Death Car on the Freeway (1979) - stars Peter Graves

Midnight Offerings (1981)

Nightkill (1980) - stars Jacklyn Smith and Mike Connors


Before you say "isn't that a film?", I posted about Nightkill in the DVD thread '80's Slasher movies on DVD', and a poster replied saying it was intended for theatrical release and went straight to TV.

PEYTON PLACE THE NEXT GENERATION  MURDER IN PEYTON PLACE  PEYTON PLACE REVISITED.  I very much want both the WIld Wild West reuinon movies.  I thought it not very fair to  include them in a box set.  The five Time Tunnel movies even though they are edited espisode's. Sleepy Hollow I want very much.

David Janssen's last, City in Fear.

Great supporting cast with Robert Vaughn, Mickey Rourke, Perry King, William Daniels, Alan Miller, Susan Sullivan . . . the list goes on.

It's only been out on VHS  --  at EP speed!.


Would also like to see Brotherhood of the Bell with Glenn Ford, but I really want City in Fear.

Have checked out the IMDb's main page for City of Fear (1980). The cast is very interesting and the plot the same. What is the reason for the difference in running time? When first shown on TV back in 1980 was it on for 2 and 1/2 hours with ads, and without it was 135 minutes?


Some more suggestions:



Calendar Girl Murders (1984) - stars Tom Skeritt

The Golden Gate Murders (1979) - stars David Janssen.

I'd like Melvin Purvis G-Man + Kansas City Massacre, but without the altered music tracks (almost all the period songs were replaced by bland instrumentals). And Reflections of Murder (remake of Diabolique), Judge Dee Monastery Murders, One of My Wives Is Missing (the best version of an oft-filmed storyline), and lots of others.

Along the lines of these "made for TV" movies, I am hoping that someone can help me an ID problem. Back in the early 70s, I believe, there was a made for TV horror movie, I don't much remember the plot, although I remember it involved a daughter either killing her mother or driving her mother to death.

In the movie the daughter sang the following song:


The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out,

They crawl through your stomach and out through your mouth.


Does this ring a bell with anyone? Can anyone ID this movie?


Thanks,

Mark

People might think I'm loopy, but I'd like to see the three "Gilligan's Island" movies put out in a legitimate release... "Rescue From Gilligan's Island"(1978), "Castaways on Gilligan's Island"(1979), and "Harlem Globetrotters on Gilligan's Island"(1981).


I have a cheap public domain release of the first one, but it's low quality, and has the opening/closing credits lopped off.

"The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out," Picture Mommy Dead, a Bert I Gordon ('Mr BIG') production with Don Ameche, Zsa Zsa Gabor, etc. Some talk was that it may have been a theatrical film that had a very limited theatrical run and was sold to tv where it was presented as a 'premiere'.
