The Ultimate 80s Teen HORROR Films On/Not On Dvd Thread v.2

I have compiled a list of Teen themed HORROR films released between 1980-1989.

I am asking those who care about this particular sub-genre, or at least some of the films in them, to express which titles they would like on dvd.
Also please suggest any titles I may have missed. Only 80's teen horror films only, please!


The list is broken into different categories.
They are:

1. Titles that are/were released on dvd in region 1.
2. Titles that are coming soon to dvd (that have been officially announced) or are in the works.
4. Titles that are not on dvd.
5. My top 10 teen horror films that should be on dvd list.


Link to my other 80s teen themed thread:

Awesome, I wasn't aware that two of my must haves were coming out on 8/24 (Night of the Demons and Witchboard).

Now, if only someone would release Student Bodies in any region. I must have this on DVD

As much of a horror fan as I am, I've never been much for slashers. For me, Halloween did that perfectly, and nothing else has touched it since.

From your unreleased list, the only titles I would miss are Night of the Creeps, Night of the Comet (terrible, but fun) and American Gothic.

Whoa, whoa, whoa...

Did I read correctly? Chopping Mall is in the works?! It's coming out a day before my birthday? Does anyone have more information about this?

Edit: Nevermind, I did a search, I was just very excited when I read that.

I worked in a video store when that came out. It was the best part of the movie.

Monster Squad and Prom Night (I know Anchor Bay released it awhile ago, but its OOP and there's a really cheap FF version, but come on, maybe Blue Underground).

Chopping Mall (released in 1986). It had Tony O'Dell from Head of the Class.

I liked it. Of course I was only 11 when it came out, but what do you expect at that age?! :-)

One that you missed on the already released list is Killer Klowns from Outer Space.

I think that qualifies, doesn't it? Kind of on the edge of "teen" I guess... depending on how strict your criteria is.

I know I might get flack for this, but I don't consider these unauthorized vhs ports to be released.
Most of the time the VHS is much better looking.
Brentwood is a very unreputable company who just doesn't care and in my opinion are bootlegers.

The JEF films release of pranks is awful looking. The vhs looks better.

Stay away from these if you can!

here is the link...

and in Don May's own words.....

We are currently working on obtaining materials for JUST BEFORE DAWN. The negative has, unfortunately, disappeared, but we are on the trail. Once we find the negs I'll have more news.

soo it looks like once he finds the negatives, it's a go!

Yeah, I have Just Before Dawn and the transfer is horrorific. I believe it's been recalled also.

My Mom's A Werewolf is on DVD for really cheap. I'm guessing it's not that great of a DVD since Rhino released it, but at least it's available.
