I might get this so I donít have to deal with my problematic Lugosi Franchise set anymore. Only bummer is Murders in the Rue Morgue is not included. I can understand because it doesnít have Karloff but still.

I know and there aren't any movies to make a comparable 2nd set that weren't already released in pressed DVD sets. I'd be happy if they dug into the unreleased pile, but none are classics, like "Rue Morgue".

Unless they do some type of Volume 2 set to the Horror Archive set from 2009.

Although I'd rather have a $7.50 - $15 pressed set, than a $50 DVD-R set (or $20 individual titles).

But yes, a set with The House of Fear, The Jungle Captive, The Spider Woman Strikes Back and The Cat Creeps would be nice.

Maybe a set with all three "Blue Room" movies?

Maybe they could tie "Murders in the Rue Morgue" to other movies from great literature, like the previously DVD-R released "Mystery of Edwin Drood" (Dickens), "House of the Seven Gables" (Hawthorne) and "The Mystery of Marie Roget" (Poe).

There's a DVD-R for Murders in the Rue Morgue as well.

They released all the Bela Lugosi Legacy Collection titles on DVD-R.

Very cool set. Great price. I already have the "Bela Lugosi Collection" on DVD though. Hopefully they release these films (with Murders) on blue-ray soon.

And if you aren't having any problems with it there is no reason to buy this set. I'm not that lucky, so I'm looking forward to this new set.

Hopefully they release these films (with Murders) on blue-ray soon.

Which is why i'd be reluctant to pay more for this set, only to have the BD come out next year!  :laugh:

 I have to get this. I never had problems with my original set, but the missing film means there's less compression.

Can you really tell the difference between 2 hrs. of program on a disc and 3 hrs.? I can't!

Okay, I just prefer the new cover. I also feel that these films deserve the respect of two discs (not a cheap "flipper" disc like the Mill Creek titles).
