I actually quite like The 'Burbs too. I see it as a comedy horror and so it's not too far related from the likes of Vamp and Frankenhooker.

Dont like the direction Arrow films have taken with their more mainstream releases. I dont believe that more successful titles will fund more niche either as that is not logical.
However i hear the quality of the actual disks has improved so that is good. Oh and i like the Burbs also.

How is that not logical? More money coming in = more to be spent. And even if the niche titles don't sell as well, the profits from the more mainstream titles should help to offset that.

Didn't see how this was illogical either. I really, really like Arrows new direction. Given how royally screwed by the Italians they were in the beginning. when they started releasing more of a mixed bag of stuff onto the market including some guaranteed sellers like the Burbs, where given its association to Joe Dante still has cult appeal, means the money is there to give Nightmare city proper treatment. Hopefully a full re-master. (missing boat footage aside) Zombie flesh-eaters was a good example of what they can achieve with these films when they spend the money to do it in house rather than rely on a botched job from the italian labs and the resulting fallout.

So far the only arrow release that hasn't tempted me is Hellgate. Would rather Sleepless in seattle than that!

I have to say, the mainstream stuff is showing me more movies ive never seen before than there old stuff.

Arrow is still working their way up, and i wouldn't be surprised if we saw some amazing surprises from them this year, obscurities, classics, etc.

But anyway, im super happy with the way theyve gone, and they still release the occasional Italian film or Japanese film and they always make me happy.

If they are indeed making decent profits off these more populour mainstream titles then it would make more financial sense to reinvest in further titles from the mainstream.

I've not seem Hellgate yet but it can't be worse than Sleepless In Seattle.
That said I suppose Sleepless wouldn't be that odd a release for Arrow.
A horror picture about a little boy possessed by pure evil who sets out to control interfere and manipulate every aspect of his helpless father's existence.
