Alien and Aliens seem to get a re-release every two or three years where I live. I think they are mostly the same print over and over again, just with new cover art, which makes them especially useless. Second hand stores are already full of different editions of both and no one seems to want them.
How many Universal monsters sets do you need? I have one that was released in 2001 or somewhere around there--8 or so discs in a special illustrated box. Then they released the "Legacy" editions, one devoted to each monster. Then they had the 75th anniversary editions. Then they released them all in one huge box (last Halloween, I believe). And we're not even touching the blu-ray releases!
Just WHAT are you looking forward to that hasn't already been printed multiple times?

The Force Awakens. The one release was WAY too many.
In rode the Lord of the Nazgûl. A great black shape against the fires beyond he loomed up, grown to a vast menace of despair. In rode the Lord of the Nazgûl, under the archway that no enemy ever yet had passed, and all fled before his face. All save one.

Yeah, Halloween (1978) has been getting a lot DVD releases, specially by Anchor Bay or is it Starz? They seem to try and milk the fans of their money for what its worth, even including silly stuff like that awful looking and way overpriced plastic Michael Myers mask that got re-released not that long ago. Evil Dead I agree on, I must have found at least 5-6 different DVD versions of the first film, and still not one of them came with subtitles or any solid bonus features.
Disney is a whole other chapter, as they really have become desperate, as their latest "trick" to squeeze out more money from their customers is by fooling them into buying the old "classics" and what is new? Nothing, they have just wrapped some cheap and "updated" paper artwork around the plastic dvd cover. But then again, this is probably nothing new, as I remember several of their DVDs was released in 2005 with the paper artwork included, and those who did not came with it, was often a bit cheaper.
For it is written: the inhabitants of the Earth have been made drunk with her blood. And I saw her sent upon a hairy beast and she held forth a golden chalice full of the filthiness of fornications. And upon her forehead was written: "Behold I am the great mother of harlots and all abominations of the Earth."
movies should be pretty much released once on each format and that's about it. they should get it right the first time but as usual i suspect it's purely a $$$ thing as they can continue to milk people for as much $$$ as they can with the initial release and then some remastered crap or adding some other minor crap to it.
