Ilsa, She Wolf of the S.S. - 4K or bluray, please.

That would be awesome.

I'd like to see "Warlords of Atlantis" get a remastered blu ray release.

I know some of them have been mentioned earlier in this post, but my all time dream would be a complete Blu-ray set of all of the AIP monster films of the 50s and early 60s. They all DESPERATELY need to be restored and given some real care. They have languished either in release hell or on DVDs in less than sub-par formats.

These flicks need to be given some respect with full restorations, tons of bonus footage, documentaries etc.

It would be something like this:

THE AIP MONSTER COLLECTION (BLU-RAY) SET 1:
Beast with a Million Eyes (1955)
Day the World Ended (1955)
Phantom from 10,000 Leagues (1955)
It Conquered the World (1956)
The She Creature (1956)
Astounding She Monster (1957)

THE AIP MONSTER COLLECTION (BLU-RAY) SET 2:
The Undead (1957)
I Was a Teenage Werewolf (1957)
Invasion of the Saucermen (1957)
Cat Girl (1957)
The Amazing Colossal Man (1957)
I Was a Teenage Frankenstein (1957)

THE AIP MONSTER COLLECTION (BLU-RAY) SET 3:
Blood of Dracula (1958)
Terror from the Year 5000 (1958)
Attack of the Puppet People (1958)
How to Make a Monster (1958)
War of the Colossal Beast (1958)
Teenage Caveman (1958)

THE AIP MONSTER COLLECTION (BLU-RAY) SET 4:
Night of the Blood Beast (1958)
The Brain Eaters (1958)
Earth vs. the Spider (1958)
The Headless Ghost (1959)
Ghost of Dragstrip Hollow (1959)
Attack of the Giant Leeches (1959)

How many of us wouldn't shell out for something like this? This is my dream set.

If they were in sets like that and at a reasonable price, yeah, but most of these kinds of BDs are being sold as singles at $25-35 ea. That's about a grand for all those movies. I've got all but 4 of them on DVD, or DVD-R for the PD (and Suzi) titles.

Just off the top of my head:

1) Man-Made Monster

2) House of Horrors

3) Jungle Captive

And, although it's not a minor film:

Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde (1932)!!!

Fair enough. I guess I was thinking along the lines of the Blood Island boxed set and Hemisphere Horrors boxed set that Severin put out recently.

I've got most of them too, but they have been copied from the VHS transfers and don't have the best image. It would be fun to see them cleaned up a bit and given some better treatment.

4 of those were released on the Midnite Movies label. 7 were released in the Arkoff Collection series.
