I'd love blu-rays of Mischief and Freaked! Though I already own the DVDs, so not a high priority.

Who at Anchor Bay do I write to to get "Scavenger Hunt" (1979) released? I've been waiting in vain for Fox to release this. I'd even be happy with a MOD version. Anchor Bay would be the perfect label to give it an official release.

Shout Factory is currently working on a blu-ray of this, due out the first half of 2012.

"Grand Canyon" is bought day one. Can Anchor Bay take a crack at the Star Wars films?

really? my (distant) memory of that film is one of interminable boredom. it will always be in my mind as one of those movies my parents rented and i had the misfortune of sitting through. that, and fried green tomatoes. mostly 90's movies about middle-aged angst.

Review for Joe Somebody:

http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Joe-So.../34625/#Review

Except for the commentary, the extras from the Fox DVD have been ported over and I think we gain a new featurette.

Now, now. Grand Canyon is a fine film.

The Entity indeed! Man I'm kicking myself for selling my DVD back in the day. A great film with a solid transfer and the awesome doc :The Entity Files.
Am curious to see what Shout Factory does with the Terror Train blu. Features?

Sweet! Had no idea... I'd just finally gotten around to picking up the Fox DVD a few months back.

Looks like Mischief is back in stock at Amazon and Best Buy. It was out of print.

I'm assuming it was part of this deal, and now it is back in circulation? If this is the case, then they had better do a blu-ray. This movie is way better than the rest of the movies in that line-up.

I thought I was the only person in the world who liked this movie or, for that matter, even knew it existed! I agree, Anchor Bay would do a fine job with this one.

Have you tried emailing them?

Anchor Bay is doing a really, really shitty job with these.

First, they leave off half the extras on License to Drive.

Now, The Terrorists is lacking even the theatrical trailer the old DVD had. Actually, the Blu-ray doesn't even have a menu of any kind at all. The transfer isn't too grand either. Anchor Bay completely shit on this release.

The Truth About Cats & Dogs, well...it has a shitty transfer. It looks about equal to a DVD upconvert.

When they want to do something right, they can. And when they want to screw things up, they do.
