    This was one of the announced titles for DVD that had me most excited, and it has disappeared from the Anchor Bay "future release" list. There was a time when I was able to email AB and actually get a personalized answer, but there is no longer any way (that I have found) to do so, therefore I cannot find out if the omission was an error or if the title has been cancelled. Anyone in the know? Wish I could have participated in the chat, because that would have been my one and only question.

    The toll free # for Anchor Bay is 1-800-786-8777. I would suggest you call them. I have called them before & they were able to answer my questions.
    This is one of my favorite films of all time. I grew up watching this film and it scared the hell out of me as a child. It still sends shudders up my spine, especially the last episode. I hope that this is a mistake on the website because I was really looking forward to this DVD, even though I own the film on laser.

    This is an OUTRAGE!!!!! You don't know how long I've been watching my really crappy VHS of this! Release it, please, Anchor Bay, or give it to someone else to release!
    Thanks.

    This was THE most exciting title for me coming from Anchor Bay. I thought they mentioned it in the recent chat, too, but I'm not sure.

    If AB no longer has plans for DoN, well, that just sucks. The VHS version really is terrible and I was looking forward to the dvd. [​IMG]
