I loved this movie as a kid. Glad to see it's coming out in hi def, and with so many HD extras. It wasn't just a lazy port job like many other 80s cult classics, that's for sure.

So this is a new edition? The review, while otherwise enjoyably enthusiastic and well-written, doesn't establish that important bit of context.

I keep meaning to upgrade to the blu but never got around to it. Nice to see good scores for the PQ/AQ. Might have to finally upgrade.

This is a review for the Lionsgate version, which, sadly, is OOP.

The Republic Pictures catalog is now handled by Olive Films (distributing for Paramount). Olive has a version coming out on 2/19. It will not have the same extras.

You guys are mean. Why was there a review of an OOP movie just published on the site?

This movie is awesome, but if Super-VHS is correct and the new edition doesn't have the same extras (or subtitles), what good is a review now?

Do you have any info on the tech specs of the new release? This was a favorite of mine when I was a kid!

Yes. All of the Republic Pictures discs from Lionsgate are, technically, out of print. That includes "The Monster Squad", "Cujo", "The Running Man", "Highlander 2" and whatever else I can't recall at the moment.

Olive Films, which now has distribution rights to the Republic catalog via an overall deal with Paramount, plan on releasing their own version of quite a few of these OOP titles soon.

Why are OOP Blu-rays being reviewed as if they are current? WTH, HD Digest?!
