    I'm curious as to why The Quatermass Xperiment (aka The Creeping Unknown) hasn't been released on dvd. Anchor Bay has released the sequels Quatermass 2 (aka Enemy from Space) and Quatermass and the Pit (aka Five Million Years to Earth). Is there some kind of rights issue?

    MGM (through United Artists) currently holds the North American rights to THE QUATERMASS XPERIMENT (1956, aka THE CREEPING UNKNOWN), which is why Anchor Bay couldn't tackle it. Since MGM is currently working on DVDs of Hammer's HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES and THE VAMPIRE LOVERS, and has released THE QUATERMASS XPERIMENT on both VHS and LD in the (relatively) recent past, it may be reasonable to assume that it might end up as a "Midnite Movies" DVD title, perhaps even sometime this year. Not that I have any inside info that verifies this hope. Fortunately, we have a far better chance of seeing this released on Region 1 DVD than if Warner owned it.
