    Any new Midnite Movies titles have been or announced for release outside of those pirate ship movies?

    According to post(s) I've seen on the Yahoo Midnite Movies forum, they (MGM and Fox) had a healthy batch of Midnite Movies planned for October, but they have been postponed. It's too bad they won't make out for Halloween, but at least when they do come out, it will be something better than pirate movies!

    Alan... I don't have access to the Yahoo forum so can you post what titles they had planned for October?

    They didn't list any specific titles but I am assuming they included The Conqueror Worm.

    Alan... from what I have read by the director of the movie (aka Witchfinder General), he said Sony pulled the title after extensive restoration done by MGM with no explanation and has no interest in releasing it anytime soon. That they are currently only interested in movies less than 10 years old.

    The director Michael Reeves killed himself in 1969. I think you are referring to Philip Waddilove, one of the producers, and that was earlier this year when Sony still had a hand in things. Now since MGM is being distributed by Fox, Sony no longer has anything to do with the Midnite Movies so hopefully they'll get back on target to the great series it once was.

    MGM was doing just fine with the Midnite Movies and AIP catalog until Sony came into the picture and basically killed the line. Now that MGM has basically cut off Sony because of their poor handling of MGM catalog titles, I foresee the line starting up again in full force under the MGM-Fox deal.

    Would love to see stuff on the Midnite Movies line like THE HOUSE THAT SCREAMED, BLOOD AND LACE, BLOOD ON SATAN'S CLAW, THE PEACE KILLERS and THE DEVIL'S ANGELS with John Cassevetes.

    I need a "Pharaoh's Curse" to go with my "Voodoo Island" -- and "The Vampire" to go with "The Monster That Challenged the World" -- and "Curse of the Faceless Man" to go with "It! The Terror From Beyond Space." These were all originally double features in theaters.

    And don't forget about "The Black Sleep" which reportedly was being worked on until Sony pulled the plug on a good bunch of Midnite movies releeases last year.

    Is this true? I thought Sony was still calling the shots as to what was getting released, despite Fox handling the distribution.

    Heck, I'd even like "Phantom From Space" and "The Neanderthal Man."
