    Paramount is releasing these on 5/28 for $24.95 each. All are pretty much barebones:

    Sorry Wrong Number

    Silver Bullet

    Graveyard Shift

    The Fan

    Cool, looks like some good horror titles in store. Looking forward to Silver Bullet especially. The Fan is a fun, trashy little lost thriller. I'm interested to see what Paramount has to offer for Halloween, though the chances of anything uncut is about as good as seeing Jerry Falwell at a Pride March.

    Yes, I'm also crossing my fingers concerning their Halloween releases.

    Here's my fantasy Paramount Halloween list:

    Don't Look Now

    The Tenant

    4 Flies on Grey Velvet

    Let's Scare Jessica to Death

    I Married a Monster From Outer Space

    My Bloody Valentine

    Any Hammer Film

    Don't Look Now and The Tenant were both originally scheduled to come out in the 5/28 batch. I wonder what happened ...

    Put BLOOD AND ROSES and FRANKENSTEIN AND THE MONSTER FROM HELL on any Paramount Halloween wish list.

    There is a Region 2 UK disc of Silver Bullet with a commentary track by the director Daniel Attias and the trailer. Will there be more features on the Region 1 disc?

    Colin,

    according to dvdfile.com it will only contain a trailer or two. And I don't think the R2 commentary will be on the R1 disc because the rights holder is a different one over here.

    So it seems the region 2 version is still the one to go for. If this is true (and I think it might be) it's actually the first time for me personally that an R2 version was out before the R1 AND after the R1's release it's still the best version to go for. Kinda sad.

    Now how about Cat's Eye on DVD? Worth it for James Woods' great performance alone. Don't know who's the rights holder of that one though.

    Chris

    Silver Bullet is coming? Excellent! Cool werewolf story from the 80's that I haven't seen in at least a decade. I will definately save a place for it in my collection.[​IMG]

    Yet more reasons why MGM is one of my favorite companies.

    These same titles with just as good of a transfer would be available for $10-15 bucks if MGM released them.

    Hardly anyone sells catalog titles for $25 a pop anymore. Paramount needs to wake up. At $25 on these titles, I ain't biting. That's just ridiculous.
