I have those two Boris Karloff titles that you mentioned in my . I also added them to my wishlist to upgrade them to blu-ray with my next next order of older catalog titles.
I found The Woman In Black tv adaptation to be superior to the film. More subtle and a general less is more approach. Some chilling scenes in this one.

Nice that they included a widescreen version as well as the original format.

If it's not called UNFORGIVEN or directed by TARANTINO, I'll give it a pass..
Iím sorry to here that. It must be tough?

The 80's TV series is brilliant. I take it you'll have the superb blu-ray set from Network.
Yeah, and they did something similar a couple of years later with Friday fright night. Happy memories. British are best at atmospheric horror.

I watched it in theaters. It was my first Cronenberg movie. There were some parts that made me squeamish but overall it wasn't as hard to watch as I was expecting. I liked it but the ending felt rather anti-climactic.

I am not a fan of Cronenberg for the most part. I think the last movie I liked of his was Eastern Promises. Will pass on this one probably.

It was a Warner Bros. Merrie Melodies cartoon called "Bacall To Arms." Bugs Bunny is not in it.

I was involved in the financing of EASTERN PROMISES. Sad to hear that his wife has passed since then, as she would often come into my branch to handle the day to day stuff as filming was going on, and give us a little inside info. She was a very pleasant lady.

I've heard great things about it. I believe this is getting a 4K disc release in January, so I will wait it out until then.

Cronenberg can get out in left field. Have:

Eastern Promises
The Fly
A History Of Violence

Will pass on Crimes of the Future. Really like Viggo Mortensen in Appaloosa and Hidalgo.

I love the original too, and Vincent Price can do no wrong in my book. However, I do like the Cronenberg version as well even though I'm not normally a huge fan of remakes.
