Fran Simeoni tweeted that Elvira will be getting a US release, but Heathers will not.

Guess they’ve at least somewhat patched over their relationship with Lakeshore in the US, good news.

Yeah. I guess it hasn't been mentioned, but all the OOP Lakeahore titles in the US are coming back into print later this year.

Arrow posted a picture of Warren Zevon on their Facebook page pertaining to announcements on the 26th. Warren's best known (Sadly) song is "Werewolves of London" so I'm guessing we're getting An American Werewolf in London.

Given Arrow's clues, it is probably a clue for their Robocop release because Zevon has glasses on and Clarence Boddicker wears glasses.

I'm surprised that nobody has suggested Midnight Cowboy.

Not sure why anyone would when it's been released by Criterion in the US and the UK.

One of Zevon's early works is included in the film, and one of this forum's longest running gags is interpreting labels' clues to be Midnight Cowboy.

It can't be Midnight Cowboy as Criterion/Sony UK licensed it from MGM already.

It's October, so I'll be surprised if it's not An American Werewolf in London. I've been asking for it for years so it's great news, especially as it'll most likely be a brand new restoration.

If it is American Werewolf in London, I doubt if it will be a new scan. Universal did a 6K scan from the negative that they used for their last release and I'm not sure they'd scan the negative again.

Arrow could release it without the DNR and people would be happy with that.

Assuming a pre-DNR master still exists.

Isn’t that what was released on the latest Blu-ray version though?

The most recent blu uses the 6k scan, but it seems to have been hit with some aggressive DNR.

Robert Harris had a very hard time defending this one and ended up partly blaming the compression, partly saying it wasn't done on purpose but done on purpose.

I wonder if Arrow's recent dips into the Warner Bros. could mean that they're the ones who have access to the Val Lewton films in the UK.

Criterion having released Cat People in the UK puts the mockers on an Arrow Academy Lewton box; I would like a standalone release of I Walked With a Zombie, though.

I don't see why not being able to release Cat People would keep Arrow from a Lewton box if they wanted to release it.
