    Feel free to add to this list....the VHS-rips on EBAY don't count...but give us a reason why you think they deserve the DVD Treatment, and to be shown to the masses....

    THE KEEP - A Great Michael Mann film, and definately something no 80's fan should go without seeing. Imagine the style of Michael Mann (Synth soundtrack, odd visual effects, slowmo...a very STYLIZED movie)...like MANHUNTER or MIAMI VICE only set during WWII. Great actors include Sir Ian McKellen, Scott Glenn, and Jurgen Prochnow. A creepy movie if you can get into it....the Michael Mann synth soundtrack is pure 80's and definately sets the mood for this creepy piece. Try to catch it on Encore's ACTION channel on cable, if you get it. I saw it last year.

    PHANTASM II: The best of the series....why oh WHY isn't this out on NTSC video yet??? I don't understand!?!?!?!?!?!....a great story, great direction, creepy as heck and doesn't smell of "low budget" like its sequils did. The Tall Man lives! Its got humor, its got violence, its got gore, and decent special effects.

    ONE DARK NIGHT: A movie that absoutely creeped me out in the 80's. Meg Tilly stars as sororoty girl trapped in a Mausoleum with other kids, unaware that one of the recently interred dead isn't quite dead, and uses his mental powers to blow the corpses out of their mausoleum graves and makes em fly around and attack the kids. Couple of shots of these 'hovering' decomposing corpses slowly floating down a dark mausoleum hallway chasing screaming kids, yeah that left an impression! A great "Zombie Movie" that, in thise age of Zombie Awareness thanks to the Dawn remake of 2004 and the upcoming new Romero movie, NEEDS to be released!

    DOCTOR DETROIT: A cool 80's flick starring Dan Ackroyd.....not a particularly deep movie, but one of those good 80's comedy flicks that deserves a release on DVD just because they don't make them like this any more. Oh, and the soundtrack by DEVO can't be beat...if that ain't 80's I dont know what is.

                Ice Pirates and Midnight Madness have been on DVD for a while.

                Phantasm II is on DVD in Region 2 and an amazing Phantasm Box set (in a sphere!) is coming out from Anchor Bay UK, well worth investing in an all region player.

                Doctor Detroit comes out in September on DVD.

                One Dark Night is supposed to be coming out from Media Blasters in November.

                    Ice Pirates is out on dvd.

                    The Keep is horrible. I am a fan of horror and WW2 movies. But this movie was just bad. The special effects were crap. The end was crap. And the whole movie was crap. But if you like it, thats all that matters.

                                Oh, and anything that Jim Henson did that isn't on DVD absolutely should be. Hey Cinderella, Frog Prince, Muppet Musicians of Bremen, The Muppet Show : Sex and Violence, Don't Eat the Pictures.... could go on and on.

                                    My dream dvd would probably be

                                    the sanrio films that came out in the 80's.
                                    Unico
                                    Sea prince and the fire child
                                    Ringing Bell
                                    etc etc.

                                    Apparently though, the creature has no interest in bringing it back so major thumbs down to him.

                                    There are way to many 80's movies that should be put out on dvd for me to list any further.
                                    The muppet show Se. 1 (8-9-05)
                                    Clarissa (8-9-05)
                                    Garfield vol 4 (8-30-05)
                                    Rocky & Bullwinkle: Se. 3 (9-6-05)
                                    Toy Story (10th Anniversary Edition) (9-6-05)
                                    Heathcliff & The Catillac Cats (9-20-05)

                                      Number one on my list is It Came from Hollywood. Does anyone else know of this movie besides me? John Candy, Dan Akaroyd, Gilda Radner, Cheech and Chong... that movie is hilarious! I wish they would release it again!
