    Dear Warner
    You are making progress in releasing more of your catalog titles on DVD but unfortunately, your Horror & Sci-Fi titles are still languishing in the vaults, which is a real shame. Could you please start releasing some of the great titles you have in your library in time for Halloween as last year you only released one title, Nightbreed, which was less than any other studio. Here are some of the titles that would make great DVDs:
    Beast From 20,000 Fathoms
    Beast With 5 Fingers, The
    Bedlam
    Black Scorpion, The
    Body Snatcher, The
    Cat People

    I Walked With a Zombie
    Illustrated Man, The
    Isle of the Dead
    Mad Love
    Mark of the Vampire
    Mask of Fu Manchu, The
    Mystery of the Wax Museum
    Of Unknown Origin
    Omega Man, The
    Picture of Dorian Grey, The
    Seventh Victim, The

    Valley of Gwangi

    Of that list I especially want
    The Haunting
    Demon Seed
    The Thing from another World
    Add the silly, but interesting Exorcist II (with a commentary from the director as to what he was thinking while he shot this film!!!) to the mix.
    I wouldn't mind seeing Wolfen, either.
    Does it bother anybody else to see such films restricted to release basically only one-and-a-half months a year? If the film you want doesn't make it in that slim corridor, you're out of luck until the next year. Do any other genres get this kind of treatment?
    And does anybody know what's going on with Omega Man? All I've heard are vague rumors about "legal difficulties". What's the scoop on the poop?

    I would purchase the following immediately upon announcement. Also, why don't you consider releasing the temporary rights to Anchor Bay - they would certainly do them justice.
    DRACULA A.D. 1972
    DRACULA HAS RISEN FROM THE GRAVE
    THE FEARLESS VAMPIRE KILLERS
    HORROR OF DRACULA
    HOUSE OF DARK SHADOWS
    MARK OF THE VAMPIRE
    NIGHT OF DARK SHADOWS
    TASTE THE BLOOD OF DRACULA

    Warner,

    I too have to admit that your sci-fi/horror DVD output has been lacking recently. Genre film fans are the most rabid fans! Give us a good video transfer coupled with a good audio track and we'll buy. It should be obvious from my sig which horror film I and many others especially would like to see released on DVD. And yes, I would purchase many of the others mentioned above if they were released on DVD. We look forward to more sci-fi/horror releases by your studio.

    John
