Horror/Genre Films that need a good R1 release

I know there are several "what are you waiting for" threads but this is is strictly for Horror. With The Stepfather and The Gate (hopefully in WS) coming out finally. I wondered what movies still need a good R1 DVD release.
I will start out with these
Creepshow (needs a SE like the R2 release)
Trick or Treat (needs a 16x9 release)
House 3
House 4

I don't think the orignal "Scream" ever came out anything more than an audio commentary.

Halloween II certainly needs a special edition.

TerrorVision (1986)
The Video Dead (1987)
The Uninvited (1944)
Island of Lost Souls (1932)

They don't have any release in R1, let alone a good one.

Did it ever receive an anamorphic widescreen release? I think that's the reason I don't own it. I have the uncut version on laser disc with the extra 19 seconds.

Island Claws (terrible giant crab film, but my grandfather stars in it!)
Humanoids from the Deep (WS and uncut)

I agree with many of the above selections, especially TerrorVision, Halloween II/III: SE, Fright Night/II SE's and The Gate II.

But I'm happy to see we're getting some much-requested titles this year.

Nope. Scream never did get an anamorphic release. That's also why I don't own it.

A R1 Night of the Eagle SE with Kim Newman commentary would be nice.

A decent release in any region of the original DAY OF THE TRIFFIDS is needed.

With Scream 4 now happening... maybe they will finally do a new release of the original trilogy. Ill buy it on BD if they release it with new extras and uncut.

Faster pacing, no Italian-language comedy and romance scenes -- with all the good violence and horror scenes intact (including the background motion end credits); available in Region 2.
