    I'm hoping for Vault of Horror to be re-released.  That is dying (no pun intended) to have a digitally remastered widescreen release.

    From my e-mail correspondence with the PR company, they didn't mention Vault of Horror as their planned releases will be of classic Universal horrors.  I will ask him though.
