    Suspiria would far and away be #1, but since they don't own it anymore I'd have to say Anguish.

    I'll go with one of the most underrated giallos, Who Saw Her Die? Venice would undoubtedly look great in hi-def. And Morricone's score is one of my favorites. A lossless track would sound fantastic.

    If you answered Suspiria and you're region-free, the Cine-Excess Region B Blu-ray disc is a substantial audio and video upgrade over the Anchor Bay DVD. Whites sometimes run a little hot and the thundering lossless track leans a little too far toward the high end. But overall it's a very impressive rendering of the film.

    I would like to see Manhatten Baby upgraded simply so I can let go of my old fulci 2 pack. However part of me wants to see Contamination too. How freaky would it be to see that ridiculous monster at the end in hi def?!

    Awesome contest! As for my pick, hard to choose since they have the rights to so many great movies, but like many on here the want I want the most is the Blind Dead collection!

    Out of all I can think of, Shock Waves is the one I've yet to actually see, although I've always been intrigued by the great cover art. Would be great to watch it for the first time on blu.

    I am a recent convert to the Blind Dead series, so that would be fun as well.

    It's a real toss-up between Don't Torture a Duckling, Deathdream and The Blind Dead Collection. Hell, I'd settle for just Tombs getting the treatment if they don't think releasing them all is a wise business decision. I HAVE heard that Don't Torture a Duckling hasn't sold much at all for them, so that's a Blu we may never see, or it'll be a long time until we do. Too bad a lot of people apparently don't seem to see the greatness of his giallo work :(

    Hmmm, wouldn't mind Keoma either. Imagine that ear-piercing theme in uncompressed HD audio :p

    Hell of the Living Dead would look fantastic on blu-ray sure the film isnt that great but it has tons of crappy acting,cheesy gore and most importantly the awesome goblin music from dawn of the dead!!!

    As much as I would love this, it is my understanding that BU had trouble coming up with good enough source materials to put a DVD together and that a BD is almost entirely out of the question. :(

    Deathdream for me, it's one of my favorite horror films! The dvd looks great but it would be cool to see it in HD.

    I would have to say GOD TOLD ME TO or Q The Winged Serpent would look great. OPERA would be a great visual treat as well.

    If they released the Blind Dead set on Blu-ray, maybe they could dial back the over-the-top blue tinting they added to GHOST GALEON. That would be nice.

    I think Baba Yaga would make be a great one. The first time I saw it was on a cheap Diamond DVD and I didn't like the film. I took a chance and upgraded to the Blue Underground DVD and now love the film. I think seeing it in a much better transfer really helped me enjoy it more, so Blu-Ray would even be better (I hope!).
