    ...about releasing Halloween titles this year? Still no word from them about a single genre title. Was hoping for at least "Let's Scare Jessica To Death" or "Student Bodies," but alas...nothing.

    It doesn't look like Paramount is releasing any horror films this September/October.

    That's more than dissapointing, I used to look forward to Paramount's October schedule.

    Still waiting for Student Bodies...

    That's a pity. Doesn't Paramount own the underrated 1940s ghost movie "The Uninvited"? That would have been a good Halloween release.

    The Uninvited is owned by Universal.

    Too bad about no Halloween titles from Paramount, I would have liked to have seen Robinson Crusoe on Mars, Phase IV, Colossus of New York or Let's Scare Jessica to Death on DVD this year.

    Yup, plus Paramount also should still have these pre-1980 titles:

    ALIAS NICK BEAL (1949)
    SPACE CHILDREN (1958, Jack Arnold)
    THE MAN WHO COULD CHEAT DEATH (1959, Hammer)
    BLOOD & ROSES (1961)
    CRACK IN THE WORLD (1965)
    THE SKULL (1965 Amicus)
    THE PSYCHOPATH (1966, Amicus)
    THE DEADLY BEES (1966, Amicus)
    THE SPIRIT IS WILLING (1967, William Castle)
    PROJECT X (1968 William Castle)
    FOUR FLIES ON GREY VELVET (1971, Dario Argento)
    UNMAN, WITTERING & ZIGO (1971)
    THE POSSESSION OF JOEL DELANEY (1972)
    SHANKS (1974, William Castle)

    --and presumably still controls the R1 rights to:

    DR. TERROR'S HOUSE OF HORRORS (1965, Amicus)

    CRACK IN THE WORLD, THE SKULL, and FOUR FLIES ON GREY VELVET are my absolute most wanted titles from Paramount. Let's hope that, if THE SKULL ever does show up, that it's widescreen and uncut, unlike Paramount's incredibly shoddy EP-speed VHS release (which utilized their wonderful "Master Sharp" EP-speed recording technology...what a bunch of EFFING CRAP).

    By the way, who owns THE FROZEN DEAD, which I believe was CRACK IN THE WORLD's co-feature?
