I saw this title cheap a few months back and now it appears no one has it for sale when I am ready to buy. Has it gone OOP or getting a new release? I am surprised this Sci-Fi classic is not available.

You may be correct, it's starting at $35.00...used at Amazon.
Have you checked ebay?
The next version of this story is called The Visiting and will come out in 2007.

I grabbed a copy on eBay while I could even if I paid twice what I could have a few months back. It may end up like "This Island Earth" which went OOP on Image and was years before Universal released their copy recently. I'm not taking a chance that Lion's Gate will release it and I have not been happy with the quality (nor non OAR) of their old and Artisan title releases.

This was one of the first DVDs I ever bought, way back in '98. I'm happy to report that it's still in my collection.

i think this was one of the titles that fell back to paramount briefly before the enite republic cataglot except its a wonderful life went back to lionsgate/artisan. I doubt it will be out of print long, as I have seen some of these titles pop up in the bargain bins

I don't know about the titles ending up in bargain bins. I noticed that Lion's Gate is re-releasing titles that were Hallmark and/or Artisan and slapping higher prices on them! In fact, I saw on one site that they have re-released the TV movie mini-series title "10.5" at $28.98 when Artisan released it in 2004 was $14.98.
