I'm glad to see the first genre company has gotten into the HD game. Hopefully, others like Blue Underground, Synapse, Elite, etc aren't too far behind.

Anchor Bay's first wave was pretty good. There were some problems and complaints. But overall, it was a great selection of titles and most people seem to be happy.

They haven't announced any more titles beyond the upcoming MOH and Beowulf & Grendel. Considering Anchor Bay's extensive catalog, what titles would you like to see them release in their second wave of Blu Ray discs?

Here's my second wave wishlist:

Re-Animator
Cemetery Man
Children Of The Corn
The Hills Have Eyes
Wicker Man

There aren't many films I'd re-buy because they're in HD unless I simply LOVED the film. I'm generally picking up BR discs that are of new films, of films I don't own yet, or films whose DVD's are in dire need of an upgrade (like Bram Stoker's Dracula). The few films that Anchor Bay still hold the rights to that I would definitely double-dip for if released are:

Dellamorte Dellamore
The Wicker Man
Hellraiser I-II

Suspiria would be a sure bet if they still had the rights (or do they? not sure if BU just picked up the rights or if it's a joint venture)

I would have put Suspiria at #1 on my list. It's still listed at the AB website. But I'm not sure if BU or AB has the rights.

Night Of The Demons, Sleepaway Camp, Re-Animator, and Demons would be at the top of my wish-list.

I'm assuming they've lost the rights to Society, since the DVD is out of print, but that's another one I'd love to have on blu-ray.

-Phantasm 1, 3, and 4
-Hellbound: Hellraiser II
-House 1 and 2
-The Hills Have Eyes 1 and 2 (if they can aquire the rights of the latter from Image)
-Tenebrae
-Phenomena (which should include the Director's Version and The Integral Version)
-Scanners
-Halloween 4 and 5
-Suspiria
-Doogal (which should include the US and original UK versions)

Now I'm afraid Anchor Bay no longer has the rights to Wicker Man, Martin, Trilogy of Terror, Let Sleeping Corpses Lie, Supergirl, Maximum Overdrive, Opera, and Happy Birthday To Me. Night Of The Demons probably went to MGM, though I think they should re-aquire it.

Phantasm and Halloween with the proper color timing. Also Hammer horror films like Dracula Prince of Darkness, The Reptile, and Plague of the Zombies but I think Bill Lustig is supposed to retain the rights as he does with most of Anchor Bay's classic releases from their glory days.

This, plus Dawn of the Dead Ultimate Edition with every extra in 1080p.

Uhm, you do know that Let Sleeping Corpses has been released by Blue Underground on blu, right?

In response to the question, I've lost track of which titles AB controls... But many of the titles they once owned - Madman, Hell Night, C.H.U.D., Re-Animator, Halloween 4, Halloween 5, and Alice, Sweet Alice - are titles I would want on blu.

Or that Scanners was never released by Anchor Bay, at least not in the US.

Were they all shot in high definition to begin with? I'd be very surprised if they were.

Otherwise, I'm pretty happy with the old titles in SD.
