    WB reps just announced on the HTF chat that by this Halloween, they'll have a DVD set at retail consisting of:
    - THE WALKING DEAD (remastered)
    - YOU'LL FIND OUT (remastered)
    - ZOMBIES ON BROADWAY (remastered)
    - FRANKENSTEIN 1970 (remastered, 16x9)

    Plus several undisclosed horror and sci-fi titles through Warner Archives. May include BEAST WITH FIVE FINGERS.

    Greg Mank did a WALKING DEAD commentary. For FRANKENSTEIN 1970, co-star Charlotte Austin, Bob Burns and Tom Weaver did one.

    Warners also mentioned:

    --New anniversary edition of GREMLINS this year for BD

    --The DARK SHADOWS films will coming out when the Depp film comes out

    --GREEN SLIME was on the schedule but was pulled

    --THX-1138 will come to BD next year.

    --More Tarzan and Charlie Chan films are in the works, and their remaining Abbott & Costello films

    --No plans for any Hammer films on BD.

    Wow, that sounds great! Warner's release of 2010 on BD comes out very soon, and there's a review up at DVDbeaver. It looks fantastic.

    Pity they couldn't dig up something better than Zombies on Broadway. Yuck.

    Comes out 10/6. Kinda surprised, as usually the Halloween stuff comes out in September.

    There's been comments that the LD of ZOMBIES ON BROADWAY is better quality, but that's hardly any reason to lay off the boxset.
