    I see we will soon be getting ASYLUM from Dark Sky, which is great. And we already have HOUSE THAT DRIPPED BLOOD and the rather poor TORTURE GARDEN. The rights to these must be scattered all over hell because the first three are all coming from different dvd companies. Now, where are TALES OF THE CRYPT, DR. TERROR'S HOUSE OF HORRORS, and VAULT OF HORROR?

    TALES FROM THE CRYPT and VAULT OF HORROR are owned by Fox, DR. TERROR'S HOUSE OF HORRORS is owned by Paramount and FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE is owned by Warner. These are for Region 1 of course.

    DR. TERROR'S HOUSE OF HORRORS is in desperate need of a restoration. The Anchor Bay UK DVD is pathetic. Re-jiggered-for-video opening credits (in English except for a German title card!?), around 15 seconds of footage missing at the end, and end credits that look like they were slapped on from a 4th-generation VHS dupe. There are much more pristine elements than that in existence for this film, with the original credits sequences intact, because the BBC used such elements for a broadcast around the time this DVD was released.
