‘The ‘Burbs’ is Headed to Shout Factory Blu-ray With Tons of Bonus Features

One of the most requested Shout/Scream Factory titles over the years, for obvious reasons, has been Joe Dante’s The ‘Burbs, and the wait is (soon) finally over.

Shout Factory announced tonight that they’ll be bringing The ‘Burbs to Collector’s Edition Blu-ray on March 20, 2018!

Bonus features have not been announced at this time, but Shout Factory promises that the release will be worth the wait. It’ll be “packed with bonus features,” they say!

Check out the art below.

“Tom Hanks stars in The ‘Burbs, a comedy about a suburbanite whose plans for a peaceful vacation at home are disturbed by a creepy new family on the block. Much to the disappointment of his wife (Carrie Fisher), Ray Peterson (Hanks) and his three neighbors set out to investigate the next-door residence after they begin to observe strange happenings. Set in an average neighborhood that is anything but ordinary, The ‘Burbs blends slapstick comedy and spine-thrilling mystery and is superbly directed by cult filmmaker Joe Dante (Piranha, Gremlins, Matinee, The Howling).”

    Cool I love ‘The ‘Burbs’! Although I think that Hanks is a phenomenal actor, I’m not the biggest fan of some of his films. Personally I’d like to see him go to the dark side and portray a deeply psychotic individual. You know something like ‘Scars of Xavier’ or ‘Maniac’ would be ideal. But anyway the roles he does choose he acts the shit out of them, which is precisely why I’d love to see him go dark. Think Robin Williams (R.I.P.) in ‘Insomnia’ or even better ‘One Hour Photo’. As far as Hanks’ earlier films ‘The ‘Burbs’ is definitely one of his best in my opinion.

    I never got around to nabbing the standard Bluray so I’ll be getting this day one.

    Terrific film. (And Carrie Fisher was so cute. RIP)

    Are the features going to be massively different from the Arrow BluRay release?

    • Mark

      Theres no word on them yet though I can not see them being much better really as the Arrow bluray is really good tbh also it has a way better cover too than this one.

      The only thing different I can see them doing are some more short docs or something
