Prison was distributed by New World on VHS, so maybe Ghost Town '88 is a possibility. It sounds pretty rad, so I hope Scream Factory ends up putting it out.

A little disappointed with the announced titles so far. Cliff on the Bluray forums announced how these titles would be huge and blow us away, so maybe my expectations were just a little too high, but they definitely haven't been in the same league as Halloween 2 and 3, Terror Train, Funhosue, Phantasm 2, They live, ect.

I'm glad some people are excited about these titles, and don't get me wrong from the trailers they looked decent and I'll grab just about anything from this line, but in my opinion they aren't huge titles that you hear a lot about, even on this forum for that matter. I want The Fog, The Howling, The Town That Dreaded Sundown, ect. It's cool that these have never been released on DVD, or only in shoddy FS releases, but it would be nice if they divided the announcements up a bit. One bigger title, and then one never before released (Again, that's if they actually got any of the bigger titles).

There's still lots of time and titles to be announced though so here's hoping, but you would think if they got any of the huge titles they would have announced at least one of them in their first announcement.

Anyways, I'm not complaining, just a little disappointed.

Title to be announced tomorrow was apparently released between 1985-1990.

Dolls?
Video Dead?
From Beyond?
Ghoulies/ Ghoulies 2?
Lifeforce?

I would be down with any of those to be honest, though I have a feeling like the other titles it will come out of left field and be one I've never heard of.

Its gotta be Dolls since it's an Empire title like the first two announcements. I'm slightly underwhelmed also but you have to keep in mind that it's still MGM titles that they've acquired, with lots of titles still to be revealed. MGM has by far the best cult catalog of any of the major studios, with many still unreleased films just waiting to be dusted off. That being said, my personal wishlist:

Alien Predators
Without Warning
LifeForce
Creature
Ghost Town

I dunno if they'll get From Beyond and The Burning though. They're rather big cult titles that I'm sure MGM would want to release themselves. I mean here's hoping but I honestly doubt it.

From Beyond and The Burning appear to be OOP too. From Beyond is another Empire release, so I think the chances of Shout! getting that are pretty strong actually. I think it's been OOP for a while now too. The Burning being OOP seems like a much more recent development. I thought Amazon still had that in stock fairly recently.

keep in mind, that's amazon.CA - their prices are always a good chunk higher than .com

Oh shit I didn't know that. Wow that would be fucking dope. If those two hit blu-ray I'll fucking lose my shit.

I know they probably wouldn't release it, but it would be nice if someone released Hell Night, Prom Night and Happy Birthday to Me on blu. My life would be complete.

Worth mentioning, DVDEmpire currently has decent prices on the Scream Factory releases. I just nabbed The Funhouse and Terror Train for $16.79 a piece.

But act quickly, because the sale is supposedly ending very soon. It was supposed to be end of the day Thursday.

Indeed, and the MGM dvd looked great, so there must be a decent print out there. And as much as I appreciate that Dorm made it onto blu, The Burning simply has a larger cult following, making it a financially less risky investment for the company releasing it.
