    Wohoo!!!! An answer to my prayers! The picture on the banner does indeed come from this masterpiece, and so is the tagline, although the full tagline goes:
    At Dawn they hide
    At Dusk they wake
    At Night the search for blood
    Pray for Daylight

    I'm sure this is a direct result of my online petition on http://www.petitiononline.com/spygg/

    ROCK! That's definitely from the poster.
    Hopefully Kathryn Bigelow can contribute to this in some way-- I know she's still working on "K-19" through next spring. A Lance Henriksen/Bill Paxton commentary would be great, too.
    Now if I can only get "Miracle Mile" on DVD in the next year or so, my prayers will be answered.

    I had read that the negatives for this film were lost and that all that remained were a few theatrical prints. Incorrect? [​IMG]

    Awesome news. I've been waiting for this one since I first bought my DVD player 3 years ago.
    I had even tried to find a VHS copy to buy, but it was out of priint.
