Moroder's version of Metropolis is coming out on blu-ray in, I think October. But why that version? Ï don't have good memories of that version. Sacrilege. ;)

The House in Nightmare Park. and Fatherland. Can only think of those two, and i think you can get Fatherland but it`s not widely available and because of that a bit expensive.

Squeeze and The Killer Inside Me (both Stacy Keach),Flirting and The Year My Voice Broke (Australian), D'Entre les Mort (Clouzet) and Betrayal (Ben Kingsley and Jeremy Irons). I manage to get most films from overseas but can't get these (except £50/100 or so).

Not quite in this category, but why is Ian McKellen's Richard III's on DVD so very expensive (unless you find a US Region 1 version)?

A few oldies but suspenseful ones, which I would be thrilled to see out on DVD:
-Night watch (Elizabeth Taylor)(only available in the USA format?)
-Dark places (Joan Collins)
-The victim (Elizabeth Montgomery)
-Eyes of terror (Rachel Ward)

Children of the Night (a Vampire horror comedy).
Neon Maniacs.
The Night Stalker.
The Night Strangler.

That's four and not what the OP asked (which was 3) but still they need to be released on DVD as I own The Night Stalker boxset of the series I just need both movies to complete the collection.

The Australian film, The Castle.
Rankin Bass' animation of The Wind in the Willows
I don't have a third one, so Zoon's OK with four.

Definately Les années lumière (1981) by Alain Tanner. It has been released on DVD but is impossible to get hold of. Possibly the Tanner's best and all but forgoten...

Mao's Last Dancer - available abroad, but not as a Region 2 DVD. A wonderful film I saw in Australia and would like to share it with family in the UK. Can't think of another two!

What about Dragnet, from a few years ago, starring 'Al' from the comedy series which had the theme song, 'Love and Marriage', sorry that's all I remember, except I saw an episode on C5 late one night, and it was brilliant.
