  • It's pretty good, but I still maintain that the unnecessary humor undercuts its creepiness.

      • Did anyone pick-up the limited Twilight Time blu release of this last month?



        Unfortunately I didn't realize it was being released and missed out on it. It was limited to 5000. 5000!? Why bother? Copies are now going for $99.99 on Amazon. I don't get why companies do this. I get limited releases, like steel-books and shit that's different from the main release, but picking up a beloved title and giving it an extremely limited release is stupid.

        I supposed I'm just pissed that I missed it and am forced spend at least twice as much (if I'm lucky) on a copy from some nerd who bought multiples to sell to losers like me at much higher price.

        I really wish Scream Factory would get a hold of this to give it a proper release.

          Yeah, I picked this up but I understand your frustration. The whole limited release thing is to make things "collectable" to nerds with no sense of value. It isn't worth $99 or even half that (eventually even nothing), people are just stupid.

          Someone else will release it though or they might re-release it themselves.

            I bought it and I'm sorry I didn't buy two at the time. It's pretty nice too. I consider it part of a holy trinity of awesome remakes along with The Thing and The Fly.

              Me too.

              How are the extras? Is it packed, or just a high res blu release?

                Not packed really:

                Isolated Score Track
                Commentary w/ Chuck Russell and Ryan Turek
                Friday Night Frights at The Cinefamily
                OG Trailer

                I haven't checked them out yet.

                    There are very few extras, just commentary, trailers and Q&A. Haven't got round to watching it yet but I've heard it's a solid transfer.
