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,
Ricky

THAT CERTAIN SUMMER (network)
FRIENDLY FIRE (network)
AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF MISS JANE PITTMAN (network)
DUEL (Spielberg, network)
GOD BLESS THE CHILD (network)
SOMETHING EVIL (Spielberg, network)
SPECIAL BULLETIN (cable)
SOMETHING ABOUT AMELIA (network)
EXECUTION OF PRIVATE SLOVIK (network)
THE BURNING SEASON (cable)
SURVIVING (wonderful network movie about teen suicide - hot topic)
IN THE BEST INTERESTS OF THE CHILDREN (network)
ADAM (network)
SYBIL (network - full-length version)
BILL (network)
THE DAY AFTER (network)
THREADS (British network)
GO ASK ALICE (network)
many, many others...
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!

THE FIRST OLYMPICS: ATHENS, 1896 (MINISERIES)

EARTH STAR VOYAGER (DISNEY MINISERIES)
Bring back John Doe! Or at least resolve the cliff-hanger with a 2hr movie or as an extra on a dvd release.
