I'm lousy at guessing but I was happy to see that Hell Night is coming and will be announced tonight. I have to admit that Scream seems to have released nearly everything in the Universal and MGM vaults that I'm interested in but I'm sure there will be a few more titles that I'll want.

I'd love to see Lost Highway but who knows if Scream will get it and I'd like to see them put out The 'Burbs and Matinee (yes, I know Arrow already released them in Europe).

Hell Night is still a rumor since nothing is official. Pre-orders on the various websites not withstanding. If they have it, this would be the place to do it, if the deal is finalized

Hopefully Scream will announce a good variety of horror titles and MST3K 39 will be announced as well

I must be going crazy but I swear a day or two ago, I saw a Scream or Shout Facebook post acknowledging that Hell Night was coming (since it had been leaked via retailers) but I can't find the post now.

I'm also crossing my fingers crossed for MST3K Vol XXXIX.

EDIT: I found the Facebook post which says basically what you said. Nice to see that I'm not crazy and my problem is that I can't read. :)

Theyve just acknowledged that they are working on a deal for Hell Night. Maybe there are just some final agreements or something needed to be made.
I dont think another release of Halloween or The Thing are in the cards unless Shout does there own steelbook, but Anchor Bay has the first one anyway.

I can see some older stuff, maybe a surprise title or two if they make any new deals with studios.. we'll see :)

Doubtful for Woody Allen. Twilight Time has them for now, until they end the 3 year window they have in place.

Doubtful for Grease also. It is a major title for Paramount. Next year is its 40th.

Rocky, probably no chance. Like Bond, it is MGM's big franchise.

After their recent spate of complete TV series releases and announcements, I'm hoping they have something else big lined up from Sony.

I remember the greatness of 2014 Comicon, when they announced UHF on Blu, the Compleat Al on DVD, and the complete Facts of Life box set.

Maybe this year will be Fantasy Island, or Archie Bunker's Place.

The titles have been announced at Comic Con. I was wrong on all counts. They are:

From Shout Select:
INTO THE NIGHT
MATINEE
MAC AND ME
THE PLAGUE DOGS

From Scream Factory:
ATTACK OF THE PUPPET PEOPLE
EYE OF THE CAT
DARKMAN 2 & 3
AMERICAN GOTHIC
CYBORG
THE STRANGERS
DRAG ME TO HELL
MISERY
and, that cult classic, SILENT NIGHT DEADLY NIGHT

So, no LEGEND, no OZ, no FIDDLER. Which now opens the door for either Criterion or Kino open for game (of course, Kino doesn't have a deal with Universal).

The one I'm thrilled about is Eye Of The Cat which has just been released on DVD in Germany and sitting in my Amazon.de cart. Now I can delete it and wait for the Shout blu ray.

Could have both. Seems to me Shout! has gone the distance trying to give us pretty complete / uncut releases.
