Question about House 1 and 2 DVDs

Does anyone have or seen the Midnight Series release of House and House II The Second Story? Is it different from the 2001 Anchor Bay DVD releases? I have the older releases but not sure whether the midnight series versions have new extras.

I'm pretty sure both of those image releases were barebones, hold on to your AB copies! I know I did

I checked the back covers for the Image releases and see nothing. My advice, keep the Anchor Bay discs cuz odds are the Image discs are bare-bones.

Well... have any of the Midnight Series re-releases been different? Say- for Hills Have Eyes? Or Hellbound: Hellraiser II? Or the other dozen films they re-released / copied? Seems to me... no, really, it seems they didn't need to re-release these either.

One thing is known, the Image DVD release of Hills Have Eyes does have the commentary as well as a 5.1 DTS mix while the Blu-ray release includes all of the Anchor Bay extras (the same can be said for Re-Animator). All other Midnight Series re-releases contain only the original trailer to the film to having no extras at all.

I appreciate the re-issues since I missed out on certain titles the first time around. Also, the cover art is superior to many of the original releases.

Thanks, Nailwraps. You know what, chancetx... that sounds like Anchor Bay's original releases were superior. I'm gonna go with: they didn't really need to be re-released. (Except that I get the Blu-Ray thing.) I really feel like upgrading so I can get a nifty ugly banner on the front cover. I didn't even like that when AB did it to Evil Dead, Phantasm, Tenebre, and Re-Animator (and Phenomena).

I own the Anchor Bay House set, which includes House 2. I'm most certainly holding onto this set. On amazon.com, it's $32.99.

In case anyone decided to bite on the new release of House (I did after stupidly selling my AB ltd Ed), it incorrectly states that it is full screen on the back. It's not. It is in 16x9.

I LOVE House (1986). It's such a fun movie and even though the Anchor Bay DVD looks nice...I want a Blu-ray release. Sadly, Image doesn't seem interested.
