The WAC podcast was a response to fan letters/requests. A user on Blurage summarised this in regard to pre-code horror releases:

Pre-code horror films: Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Freaks, Fu Manchu movies: Freaks - only fourth generation elements at Warner; there is a plan for Freaks in the future nothing more to announce at the moment / Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde as well as the Spencer Tracy remake - a lot of demand - will require a lot of work and they are looking for better elements some very very promising discussions though / The Mask of Fu Manchu - nothing to announce regarding this title and Mark of the Vampire - George would love to do them on BD and they are logical consequences for the future but they would be costly and as always nothing to announce yet

'THE CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN' (1957) - 2 DISC SPECIAL EDITION Coming soon from Warner Archive Collection

"The first, and perhaps the best of the long-running series of horror films from the house of Hammer, Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee star in this landmark interpretation based on the famous Mary Shelley story. Baron Victor Frankenstein becomes friends with one of his teachers, Paul Krempe. At first, both men are fascinated by the potential of their re-animating experiments. Eventually, though, Krempe refuses to help with Frankenstein's human experiments. However, he is drawn back into the plot when Frankenstein's creature kills a member of the house staff. For its U.S. Blu-ray debut, Warner Archive is proud to present this deluxe 2 Disc Special Edition, featuring two theatrical aspect ratio presentations, meticulously remastered and restored from preservation separations, as well as bonus disc with the restoration presented in "open-matte" format, as was seen for years on television, plus four exciting new retrospective featurettes, an expert commentary, and the original theatrical trailer."

I'll wait to see how much of an improvement this is over the Icon release, but given that this is a 4K remaster I think the upgrade is probably a foregone conclusion
