    I distinctly remember going to the movies with my brother and Dad when I was a child. I don't remember what the film was, but it would have been some sort of family film. I don't remember the movie, but I sure as heck remember that red band trailer for Scanners they showed before it. Pure nightmare fuel.

    Sometimes I really miss the days when trailers weren't attached to a particular movie. Theaters just showed whatever they had lying around.

    I made a blind buy of this on DVD when I first went away to college -- and somehow never watched it.

    Would still like to see the movie, but probably won't blind buy it again, I figure if I haven't gotten to it in over a decade of having it on my shelf, the urgency probably isn't gonna happen anytime soon. But glad there's an HD version I can at least rent one of these days.

    What's with the separate BD/DVD combo and DVD releases? I thought Criterion announced they were going all combo pack, with no more individual format releases?

    The MGM dvd had both trailers IIRC.
