    I don't know if you've noticed, but the world was in a bit of a recession the past few years. :D People have come, limping, back out of it I guess. Spending a little more cash.

    Also cost of production has gone down. It's much more affordable now to do even a 4k scan of a film. Considering that you can do that now and get it on three mediums: DVD, Blu-ray, Streaming. HD is where the money is now.

    Hard Rock Nightmare, the werewolf/slasher hybrid from the makers of Evil Laugh.

    I have been searching for a reasonably priced VHS of this for years to no avail.

    Hopefully someone like Slasher // Video or Massacre Video comes to the rescue, but this one might be too obscure even for them.

    I have an HD broadcast of Private School on the DVR. Pretty good flick. Definitely an above average cast for a low budget 80's teen comedy. It doesn't seem too unlikely that we'll see it released one day.

    Funny reading this thread how many titles have been released already. I feel like Scream Factory must have been checking here frequently when licensing their titles over the last few years. :lol:

    Most of my wants aren't horror related:

    Foul Play

    Scavenger Hunt (1979, never even on DVD)

    Murder By Death (with added TV scenes)

    Paper Moon (would love Criterion to give this one a deluxe release)

    Waiting For Guffman (can't believe this one has been relegated to Warner Archive DVD-R)

    Last American Virgin (couldn't someone just transport the Arrow blu to region 1?)

    Slaughterhouse Rock, One Dark Night, and Fright Night 2 are all ones I am still hoping for. Also really want to see a Tales From the Crypt Complete Collection Blu and a Phantasm complete collection which something tells me we will see soon. Also wish we could get Are You Afraid of the Dark in a complete set.

    Waxwork 1 and 2

    I have the HD capture of Waxwork. I think it was shown on MonstersHD (still haven't forgiven Dish for that). The other two are on HD streaming I may buy from Amazon.

    I'm with chancetx regarding Foul Play and Murder by Death (don't forget Seems Like Old Times!). Number one on my list would be Batman: The Animated Series. I can't see Warner justifying the cost to remaster each episode.

    I don't understand why THE REFLECTING SKIN has never even been released on DVD. A special edition of that would be awesome.

    There's a region free bluray in Germany you can get for pretty cheap.
