Picked this up for $15.99 at Hastings today. Holy crap, Universal put some genuine effort into this! It has all the deleted/TV scenes, and the deleted ending (in 4:3, which I assume were the best quality versions they could find), and they even have subtitles. Terror In The Aisles is the full doc, and not just some ported over video transfer either, but a full, very nice looking new HD transfer, with a Dolby Digital stereo soundtrack. The movie itself looks and sounds better than it ever has (there is the original stereo track in 768k DTS 2.0, and a 5.1 "Processed" track in 768k DTS - no lossless, which is a shame, but this is still much better than it has ever sounded before. I would suspect even those who own a 35mm print of this movie from it's original run will be watching the Blu version from now on. It's all on one disc, but the disc is a BD-50, so everything fits nicely without any compromise in quality. Sure, they could have possibly fit in a lossless 5.1 DTS-MA audio track if they had yanked Terror In The Aisles, but in a day and age where studios don't bother releasing catalog movies on BD, and when they do, they are barebones with ancient made for HDTV broadcast transfers, this disc is a steal. The fact that they spent time and money making a new HD transfer of Terror In The Aisles alone deserves your meager $13-15. At $12.99 on Amazon, and $15 at Best Buy, this is a steal.
