Who owns the Republic Pictures catalog of movies? I know at one time Artisan owned it, but now that they're being bought out by Lion's Gate, is it safe to assume that they will own the Republic catalog? I am specifically hoping that one day the movie Scared Stiff will come out on DVD. I have it on 4:3 Laserdisc, but would love to have it on DVD. Its one of my favorite under-appreciated horror films from the 80s.
