    That probably means we will never see a release of Home for the Holidays. :(

    If it's with Sony, then no, probably not, but there have been recent rumors about Sony wanting to sell off it's film and TV units, so that could (or could not) bring about a dramatic change in how those back catalog holdings are handled. If they don't sell, they have slowly been opening themselves up a bit to licensing, both domestically and overseas.

    Probably not, but it would be awesome if it were "The Dark Secret of Harvest Home." That one originally aired on NBC, though, and I imagine MGM would have released it on DVD if they'd had the rights.

    Universal has the rights. Best bet would be a Scream Factory release.

    The non-Peter Sellers flicks. I'll grab the new Shout! Box set, but I'll pass on these.

    Making Contact makes contact (joke intended!) May 9th!:

    From Facebook:

    "Coming May 9th on DVD and Blu-ray!
    Brand New HD Master!

    Making Contact (1985) with optional English subtitles
    • Original U.S. Theatrical Trailers 1 & 2
    • Original German Theatrical Trailer"

    However, the release will only contain the US Theatrical Version. Kino responded why on Facebook:

    "We waited almost 2 years for the Germans to clear JOEY and they didn't. This release will only include the US cut."

    Good thing I held on to my old Anchor Bay dvd. That should make it more valuable now. :D

    Same here, this is exactly why I almost always wait before I sell something off early.

    The German cut of the film is available on Blu-ray in Germany, but lacks any English subtitles.

    So excited! Just got Teen Witch, one of my all-time favorites, on blu-ray in the mail today!

    Even better, it's loaded with extras. Thank you, Kino and Scorpion! I can't wait to watch it over and over!

    I watched the Blu-ray a couple of weeks ago. ;) The extras are great and indeed loaded, they really did a solid job there.

    My only complaint was the lack of subtitles, as the old DVD had them. It surely wouldn't have been too difficult to add them to the release. Kino are just weird with subtitles...some releases include them and some don't.
