Already preordered this on Amazon, and I implore anyone remotely

interested in a really great, scary film to buy this blindly.

 

....and this is coming from someone who is not a big fan of horror films.

 

My only complaint is the new artwork. Really liked the original with the

noose hanging from the tree with the house in the background.  Wish 

they would have stayed with that.

So far, my favorite movie of 2013.  I'll be doing a triple feature just before Halloween with The Uninvited, The Haunting and this film.

This must be the first time that there's more 'profanity' in the names of the special features than in the actual movie (and yet the movie still got an R rating).

I'll be glad to see this again. But... No commentary, no trailer... for a movie of this popularity and magnitude? Yes, I know the argument -- it's about the movie, not the extras. Ok, but... retail price of $35.99? A couple of years ago, a Blu/DVD combo even with a ton of extras generally went for $29.99 (street of $19.99). I want to continue supporting physical media, but less for more bothers me, and for any movie that I enjoyed less than I did this one, it's a deal-breaker.

I've tried to think of a movie that has scared me more...and I can't. The film is perfect, and not just the horror aspects. The writing and performances are magnificent. Definitely a film that stays with you long after the final credits roll. I guarantee that it will be considered a classic in the genre.

I never understood the need for trailers, especially, for films I know very well.  Commentary is another matter as I would like a commentary for almost every movie.  Just my opinion so no need to answer my comments.

 

Why quote retail price?  If any of us are paying retail then we're not taking advantage of this forum or the internet in general for buying physical media.

I really enjoyed this one as well, despite finding some things ridiculous. Like that doll at the start. What monster in their right mind would make such a doll, much less purchase one?!?!?

 

I'll wait for a sale though, my horror movie card for October is already chock full of titles so I'm not in a panic.

Trailers are an art form all their own. Other than the horrible ones voiced-over by Don Lafontaine and his imitators, trailers are wonderful "mini-films," and, if not too revealing (spoilers), can be almost as much fun as the films they promote. I admit, the trailers of the 30's-60's are the best, as they incorporated graphics and were largely without voice-over. I could watch hours of good trailers in one sitting. That the studios are dropping these seems, not only lazy (how much effort or cost would be involved in including them?), but a sign that they don't have any further interest in true film aficionados. You can "know a film well" and still appreciate the artistry of a well-cut trailer.

 

I quoted retail price, but also street price. It's all relative.  I was pretty acclimated to paying $20.00 street price for Blu-rays, but that is now more often $24.99. Yes, everything (except electronics) has gone up in price, but it's not like it's costing studios 20% more to replicate these things now as opposed to two years ago, especially considering the lack of extras.
