Let's Scare Jessica To Death is a classic I'd love to see on DVD. Also, Vampire Circus has not been released in R1 at all.

I've always wanted to see Let's Scare Jessica to Death and I've only heard about Vampire Circus strangely enough recently.

Don't know how to edit my posts, but wasn't Let's Scare Jessica to Death a 70s horror flick by the way? I could've sworn it came out earlier than the 80s.

How is the 1981 classic 'The Burning' not on here?! Outside of Halloween and Friday the 13th, it's IMHO the best slasher. One of the few high quality ones made.

"Let's Scare Jessica To Death" scared ME to death when I was, like, 9 or something. It IS a 70s film, by the way. '71, to be exact. And it finally hits DVD on 08/29.
I wholeheartedly agree with 95% of this wishlist, too. Particularly "Night Of The Creeps" and "From Beyond", both of which I watched about 87 times on HBO when I was a kid. Ken Foree in an S&M horror flick?...TER-RI-FY-ING!!!

...and what about "Mausoleum" from 1983? If memory serves, not a great flick (although I remember the poster art keeping me up at night...I was such a little wuss), but I'd love to check it out again!

Okay it's more science fiction than horror and from the 1970s: "Food of the Gods".

From Beyond has been playing uncut ( Directors Cut ) on MonstersHD so I would assume a DVD is to follow soon.

I downloaded the director's cut of From Beyond a couple of weeks ago. I'm looking forward to revisiting it in preparation for the eventual DVD release.

It's been mentioned already, but here's my most wanted list:

Night of the Creeps
Night of the Creeps
and
Night of the Creeps

Including both endings please!

Wow! I thought I was the only person that saw Bad Ronald!

I'd love to see:

Bad Ronald (1974)
Let's Scare Jessica to Death (1971)
The Initiation of Sarah (1978) (I think that they are remaking this one)
Picture Mommie Dead (1966...but I still want to see it! The worms crawl in...the worms crawl out...)

There was another one that was sort of Hansel and Gretel-esque. I for the life of me can't remember the name of it.

Agreed with everything on the list. You forgot:

SPOOKIES (1984)
DEADLY EYES (1982)
ISLAND CLAWS (1980)

For those who haven't seen it, ZOMBIE HIGH is a great toung-in-cheek living-dead flick filmed at USC in 1986.

The DVD gods have been good to us on some 80's horror films that I never thought would see light on DVD, ex: THE CHILDREN, WARNING SIGN, MICROWAVE MASSACRE, NIGHTMARES, IMPLUSE, MUTANT and many others.

NIGHT OF THE CREEPS (1986) needs a DVD release *now*. Also, please include the TV print of the movie as an extra using seemless branching.

Here's hoping!

Actually, it's one of the 1970s' better-known TV movies. Numerous others are superior though.
