I enjoyed these Creature Features Thursday Night Marathons they did back in May 2017. I hope they do these again,but it did leave me wanting to see some of these films remastered in widescreen and in HD. I realize some like Tarantula and The Deadly Mantis are Universal Properties,but hopefully Universal can get cracking on remastering these films for blu-ray and hopefully for later cable and satellite airings on TCM. :)
