    Looking forward to the new UNIVERSAL HORROR COLLECTION VOL. 2 as I am a big fan of horror faves Lionel Atwill and George Zucco. I wish someone would do a decent set of Zucco's low budget horrors from Monogram. There's good fun to be had there !

    That'd be great. I was on a bit of a Zucco kick about a decade ago. I could use a refresher. Unfortunately Roan didn't dabble in HD after White Zombie. I think most of my DVDs of Zucco come from Roan. Our HD Monogram selection is not like what we had on DVD.

    The more I see Atwill the more I want to see Atwill. I've grown in appreciation of him over the last couple of years and especially last October when I watched a bunch of Frankensteins and he's in half of them. It's unfortunate that he got chased out of Hollywood for literally owning porn (I mean... those same executives were watching it at his parties!). He hopefully would have gotten much better roles for those last few years of his life. Would love to see the WB put out a HD set of their two-strip Technicolor horrors with him.

    With Shout releasing the Lewtons they could do it too. But since those are RKO's the WB may be willing to sub-license them out but wish to hold onto anything they produced in house like their own early horrors.

    Those interested in the Karloff-Lugosi set (Universal Horror Collection Volume 1) may want to bite now. It's down to $49.99 at Amazon.

    It's really about time someone did a Lust for a Vampire BD, looking forward to that one!

    I can’t wait to grab Superstition. I haven’t seen it since high school when the Anchor Bay DVD came out. I remember liking it a lot, great atmosphere, some truly gnarly kills. Didn’t expect it to be as gory as it is, but remember it being a lot of fun.

    Same here. I remember it being an awesome surprise when I saw it. Way gorier than I was expecting and great atmosphere like you said. Fingers crossed it lives up to my fond memory of it.

    I hope it does for you, it didn't for me, I watched this as a kid and loved it, I re-visited as an adult around 15 years later and was very disappointed, the special effects are pretty bad, some of it looks really fake, I got really bored around the 50 min mark and struggled to get to the end, I may re-visit again (with the help of alcohol!), but it's not top of my list at the moment.

    I am slightly worried as there's been a lot of films I loved (or thought I did) from my younger years that just don't hold up or do it for me anymore. On the bright side it's been a great way of thinning my collection out.

    Same here. Lots of films, that I loved during my teens, I can't watch anymore.
    It's sad, because I miss the days, when I loved watching F13, Elm Street, Night of the Demons etc, over and over again.
    But no matter how I try to get back in the mood for it, I end up turning them off after 10-15 minutes.

    Thankfully, some of them still holds up, as I still enjoy watching stuff like Evil Dead and The Thing, no matter how many times I watched them.

    To me, Superstition still held up well, when I last saw it 6-7 years ago.
    Let's hope it still does, when I get the Blu-Ray.

    I didn't care for Superstition on my first and only viewing. I do have a great nostalgia for the period, but it just didn't click with me. I still have a great affection for the Fridays and the Halloweens, and some of them legitimately scared me before I became overly familiar with them. I also still find enjoyment in discovering "new" (as in: new to me) titles from the period. Even though I was born in 1978, I guess there's still a 14 year old kid inside of me. :)

    Yeah I sold my Night of the Demons blu not too long ago as I couldn't sit through it either. Never been a massive fan of the original Friday the 13th either as it's fairly slow and uneventful for my tastes but I'm more curious to sit through that again in the right mood than to endure the horrendous acting in NOTD. Elm St I still really enjoy too and think it still holds up well. Plus I'm pretty nostalgic over that one.

    Good news for those interested that aren't region free. Bought the Network release (along with UFO) several years back, and the quality is solid. Don't see much need for a second dip.

    Shout should have included the UFO series in the mix. It's arguably a precursor, and IMO a better over all series. Given the only 2 season run of Space: 1999, adding to the content would be justifiable.
