    Warner's Twisted Terrors. I absolutely love the one they put out. They are still sitting on quite a few gems worthy to be included on more Twisted Terror releases.

    MGM's Midnight Movies, followed closely by Shriek Show's The Slasher Collection and Warner's Twisted Terrors...

    The Town that Dread Sundown and Blood and Lace would both be great candidates for the Midnight Movies line. I Think Warner owns the underappreciated Night School. And anyone who could release Curtains and/or Rituals has my vote.

    Code Red has a three of the slashers I'm most interested in: The Mutilator, Silent Scream, and Butcher, Baker, Nightmare Maker.

    I said other, not much interest in DVD anymore, just want stuff in Blu-Ray. Guess other doesn't exactly represent that view though.

    Most of this needs to make a comeback, but Midnite Movies gets my vote. We're missing out on a lot of poterntail stuff.

    I don't know. There may not be any midnite movies this year, but it somehow seems a little premature to call the line "defunct".

    But "Defunct DVD" has a much better ring to it than "DVDs Indefinitely On Hiatus", don't you think?

    Gary Coleman and Mark Messier approve.

    I honestly think it's dead as shit, though, sadly. Mya and Severin are pretty much the last in line to feed our addictions.

    But what does that even mean? It isn't as if MGM is going to mysteriously disappear overnight. I was more worried about that a few years back when they were taken over by Sony. But then they were joined with 20th Century Fox and everything was better. Midnite Movies isn't even remotely comparable to the likes of BCI's Spanish Horror Collection or even the output of Blue Underground or Anchor Bay. MGM was around 50 years ago and will most likely be around 50 years from now. The others on the list? I wouldn't be really all that surprised if they crashed tomorrow. I'm totally convinced that the movies we want from MGM will make it to the marketplace eventually. You just have to be a little patient. :)

    Voted for MIDNITE MOVIES though I pray they are not truly ''defunct".

    twisted terror, based soley on the uncut releases of "eyes of a stranger" and "deadly friend". I think the box was the only thing they had in that series , and Warner owns SO many titles.
    but would really vote for all of them

    A little early to called the series "defunct", but I hope that Warner Bros. continues to put out more "Horror Double Feature" discs like IT/THE SHUTTERED ROOM.

    I think MGM's Midnite line will come back eventually, it was too good to kill off, but the Paul Naschy stuff being canceled really did suck the big one. They even had a Blu-ray release! It's doubtful we'll be seeing any HD Naschy any time soon, perhaps never if they consider it a dead franchise.

    The rest of the lists were pretty much played out in a way, it's not like giallio in general isn't being released anymore. Whatever isn't put out on those lines probably comes out some other way.

    I'd like to see Anchor Bay's Hammer Collection get decent remasters.

    I watched Dracula Prince of Darkness a while back and it looked like shit on my HDTV.

    I voted "other," because if rights issues and availability were no obstacle, I would want Classic Media's "Toho Master Series" of Godzilla and Toho sci-fi releases to continue. Unfortunately, CM isn't interested in licensing additional titles, and even if they were, many are tied up w/ other companies and some just aren't available for various reasons.

    As for something that might actually happen, I'd of course like MGM's Midnite Movies to continue. I'd also like to see more of Elvira's Movie Macabre and The Film Crew from Shout! Factory. And more sci-fi, horror, and monster titles from Warner's Cult Camp Classics.
