If you already have, or have easy access to, the UK Blu-ray, then the Twilight Time disc will probably not offer any reason to upgrade. However, most people do not import from outside their own country, or even know how to. The TT disc is the only official Blu-ray release of the movie in the United States.

For those that missed out on the Twilight Time exclusives, this Japanese pre-order is getting a lot of attention:

It's a double feature with both Fright Night and Christine. The included Fright Night only has lossy audio, if that matters to you.

After seeing the prices for copies of Christine on Ebay, I found out about the Australian release. I was able to buy TWO copies of it, shipped from Australia, for less than the original Twilight Time price for one copy ($30).

You just know when the picture and sound are vastly improved when a BR you only had time to watch for a few minutes ends up sucking you in and you watch it till the end . Zardoz just did that to me . Thanks TT . Seriously looking forward to Mississipi Burning and Absolute Beginners .

build coffins. that's all you'll need. R Neville
