OFFICIAL SYNOPSIS
Get ready for the ultimate battle of man vs. bloodthirsty machine in this terrifying Stephen King classic! For three horrifying days, the Earth passes through the tail of a mysterious comet. The skies glow an eerie green as humanity waits to see what the fallout will be. But what they imagine is nothing like the nightmare they find — the comet’s magnetic fields cause all the machines on Earth to suddenly come to life and terrorize their human creators in a horrific killing spree. Now, it’s up to a small group of people trapped in a desolate truck stop to defeat the killer machines — or be killed by them!

Lionsgate released this previously on their Vestron line so I'm kind of surprised to see another edition without the branding. Plus, I don't see anything about a fresh scan on that specs list. That Vestron edition had one of the worst transfers of the entire specialty line. LG is one of the cheapest studios when it comes to restorations.

Zooming in on the spine shows what looks like the Vestron logo with the Lionsgate wordmark underneath.
