I think the known titles (released and announced) are going to be about it for this deal. I don't think these are selling all that spectacularly, and the best stuff is already released. No reason to spend money on preparing more releases if they will not recoup.
I recall something about 50 Roger Coman Titles...

Yeah, and they might be planning on releasing all 50 regardless of sales, but I suspect we will see more double features and probably no more Blu-rays.

I'd be surprised if they didn't release Battle Beyond the Stars on Blu-ray at some point. It was originally announced for a DVD/Blu-ray release later this year, but it seems to have been delayed for whatever reason.

I agree, it is one of the key titles from the Corman catalog...and one that I think alot of people remember from their youth. I am sure there would be a market for it judging from the value that the OOP DVD used to fetch on ebay.

Galaxy of Terror and Forbidden World was a shitload of sleazy and ultra cheesy '80's fun. I look forward to Star Crash.

When the hell is Netflix going to make the Death Sport double feature available? I want to see it and Battle Truck!

GALAXY OF TERROR - I do remember very well seeing this on cable in 1982 (Showtime After Hours) and I really loved it. Watched the new disc last week and, maybe it's just me, but there is maybe a very small ALIEN influence compared to years of reading "...ALIEN knockoff, ripoff, ect.". The story, as newbies in our movie group pointed out, is actually more "Star Trek"-ish if anything. The sets aboard the spaceships pre-date ALIENS more than ALIEN to my eyes. Some of those hatchways were very Cameron-esque. The creatures are straight out of the 50's and 60's.
such a wonderful film - first time I actually watched this thoroughly in years. The one quibble I have (but this is because we have only a TV and no stereo system - damn apartment living) is that the audio dialogue was so damn low! The music and effects were jolting but we had to crank up the sound just to make out the dialogue. This is with most DVDs, however...mostly big studio stuff I noticed.

Makes sense since Cameron was production designer and did some second unit work on it. His influence can be seen all over the film and they talk a crap ton about him in the bonus features.

Nice - I noticed a few familiar sound effects as well. I'm sure I heard the ALIENS powerloader at one point.
