3 Stars

Hope an enlightened insider from Warner might be able to let us know when this might happen. Volume 1 came out three years ago I think.

I think you mean the Warner Science Fiction set featuring, Son Of Kong, Them, The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms & Mighty Young Joe. There was a Warner DVD horror set a few years ago, Hollywood's Legends of Horror Collection: (Doctor X / The Return of Doctor X / Mad Love / The Devil Doll / Mark of the Vampire / The Mask of Fu Manchu). I wouldn't mind a few of those on Blu-ray (esp. Fu Manchu).

Warner Home Video stopped releasing catalog titles two years ago. Warner Archive releases all Warner catalog titles on Blu Ray now. They do individual titles and not sets so Vol. two is not going to happen just individually released titles. Warner Archive released Hammers When Dinosaurs ruled the Earth last year and Just recently released Dracula AD 72 and Satanic Rites of Dracula which most likely would have been in Volume 2.

Plus Warner sublicense some horror titles to Shout Factory. The likeness has gotten smaller and smaller, unless they repackage titles already on Blu-ray

The WB Hammer titles that are left that I like, and would buy day 1 are …. The Curse of Frankenstein, Horror of Dracula, and She. I hope at least She will be a Archive title for 2019. The 2 Big ones Curse, and Horror. Where are they already ?? : (

I thought a Bogart/Becall set was coming out from WHV?

Yeah, here's hoping for She from WAC next year, not a great film, but I loved it back in 1965.
Yup. Me too. I was an officer of the AV Society in my High School responsible for renting 16mm Films to show after class. I rented SHE from Films Inc. which I must say was one of our most popular screenings, with lots of whoops from the teenage audience at certain strategic places in the narrative. OK, maybe not state of the art filmmaking, but who cares? Anyway, being responsible for the print, I got to check out individual frames of Ms. Andress on the rewinds, which I found appropriately stimulating. And yes, she still looks amazing. But then she possesses a beauty that's really unique, and timeless.

Yes but just a repackaging of previously released WAC titles not new tiles like the Horror and Sci-Fi Vol. 1 collections were.

The old Warner DVD set, Hollywood's Legends of Horror Collection (Doctor X / The Return of Doctor X / Mad Love / The Devil Doll / Mark of the Vampire / The Mask of Fu Manchu) is now oop with just two offers on the Marketplace, one for $59.95 & then it jumps to $134.89. I'd much rather have some of those old films on Blu than the 2nd (& 3rd) tier Hammer efforts.

It would be nice if Warner would put "Doctor X" out on Blu-ray with both the Black & White and the 2-Color version — That ugly looking color on Doctor X is pretty unbearable and I hope something is available to improve it (otherwise I could live with the Black & White version).

I could see some of the Legends of Horror set going to Shout Factory. I could even see Doctor X and Mad Love going to Criterion.
