be their most popular title. The bigger problem apparently is what their retailers are requesting of them.
Here's a post
that came up on the Blu-Ray.com forum about a month ago in response to an inquiry regarding their status.

Thanks for your email. We actually released new single-disc Blu-rays of ZOMBIE and MANIAC for Halloween! Many retailers requested these releases because they thought the 2-Disc Special Editions were too expensive for their customers and wouldn't carry them, so we complied with a cheaper alternative. We've also had numerous requests by our retail partners to release low-priced multi-feature DVDs, as they claim that is all people buy now. So we've been very busy releasing several waves of the MIDNIGHT MOVIES COLLECTION. Regarding the Larry Cohen Blu-ray releases, they are on hold for now due to licensing issues and/or lack of materials to do new HD transfers. Should those issues be resolved, we will announce the releases on our website. We are always trying to work out agreements with our licensors to release our catalog on Blu-ray, but it's really out of our hands as we rely on the licensor's interest and ability to do so. Many do not want to undertake the expense for new HD transfers or don't have the proper materials available to do so. We are also always looking to acquire new titles to release on DVD and Blu-ray, but we are rather picky and won't just release any old movie. But if all works out as planned, we should have some interesting new titles coming out in 2013.

They also responded to a Facebook inquiry recently.
Hopefully that's not just lip service, as 2012 has definitely been an off-year for them, especially compared to the solid 2011 release schedule they had.
