Warner Brothers' Twisted Terror Collection 2 DVD Set?


I love that Twisted Terror Collection that Warner Brothers put out last summer.

They should release a second one with the following Warner titles that are not released on DVD.

"The Awakening"
"Deadly Eyes"
"Murder by Phone"
"The Pack"
"Razorback"
"The Town That Dreaded Sundown"

Do they still hold the home video rights?

I'm not sure, but I don't think it's a title that would be much of a problem to get the rights back to if they did.

Twisted Terror volume 2 would rock. And I'd be interested in seeing MURDER BY PHONE.

Warner no longer holds the home video rights to either "Murder By Phone" or "The Town That Dreaded Sundown," as these films were distributed when Warner had a licensing agreement for certain New World and Orion titles back in the early '80s to early '90s.

"Murder By Phone" was originally "Bells". New World acquired that film, cut it by 14 minutes and retitled it. While they did not produce the original version (which was initially released by Canada's Astral Films), they may still hold the rights to the truncated version. If that's the case, Buena Vista might currently hold the rights since they bought interest in Roger Corman's catalog a few years back. Unfortunately, the Corman releases, for some reason, have ceased (with a few announced titles mysteriously canceled).

MGM owns "The Town That Dreaded Sundown" and I doubt we'll see a release anytime soon unless they resurrect their Midnite Movies line, once again.

Thanks for that, didn't know Warner lost the rights to those films.

Also, an update: "Razorback" is now part of the Warner Archive collection. Rock and roll!!

I'm confused! So who owns the full, uncensored version now and where can I get it?

I have the uncut Astral VHS... good luck finding another one.

Now if you have PAL equipment you may be able to find this title on the UK Guild label - it shows up on eBay occassionally... certainly more often than the Astral NTSC release.

Someone in Canada needs to get these HTF Canadian Film Development Corp. titles out on DVD. There are others besides this one that should be released.
