Oh wow! I’m a John Carpenter completist and I’d hoped Warner Archive would release Memoirs on BD, so the Scream Factory Carpenter announcement is a total surprise! It appears Warner has finally agreed to licence films to labels other than Criterion!

Perhaps other Warner-owned horror/sci-fi titles like Creepshow, Twilight Zone: The Movie, Deadly Friend, Looker (and so many more) will be licenced to Scream Factory?

Maybe Warners is realising that they cant release everything and licensing some of them will help get them remastered and/or restored and released. This is good news!

I saw this film years ago, and I enjoyed it...

"I want my Molecules back!"

I had no idea it was John Carpenter.

"The laughs and visual effects are out of sight when Chevy Chase headlines Memoirs of an Invisible Man. "

What?

This isn't a comedy.

Anyway I'm a fan and will buy it.

This is the only Carpenter movie that isn't "John Carpenter's..."Isn't it?

A fun film. I liked it better than some reviews suggested I should. I also liked it better than other modern attempts at invisible man movies, like Verhoeven's Hollow Man.

I’ve had the hardcover book for a long time. Gonna read it one of these days.

I’ve heard the movie is barely anything like the book.

so after this the only really absent Carpenter titles, will probably never happen, but i could be wrong, if Shout wants to step up to the plate and re-release a Complete Season 1 of Masters of Horror and a Complete Season 2, then you get Cigarette Burns and Pro-Life

Shout/Scream has been announcing Warner titles since late January when their deal started. Previously announced titles were: Its Alive Trilogy, Of unknown Orgin, Curse of the Cat People and Night of the Lepus. They are supposedly releasing a few of the Warner owned Hammer films later this year.

I'm hopeful that they'll do He Knows You're Alone. Part of that is just because I like slasher movies but it does seem like a title that Scream would release so I think my optimism might not be misplaced.

The skeleton of the book is there. However the book is so much better. I’ve read it about 4 times. Once after I had switched over to ebooks and reading print had become unpleasant for me. It’s out of print and not available as an ebook.

Chevy Chase was badly miscast for this movie. Sam Neil is good and I always love Daryl Hannah.

Having knocked the movie, I’ll still probably buy this blu.

All of the above is, of course, IMHO.

BTW, the novel is an excellent primer for living as an invisible man while bad guys are chasing you.

Just noticed on Shout’s side that extras are in progress and TBA. I hope one is a Carpenter commentary. It’s my recollection that the studio interfered with the production.

Try John Steakley's novel Vampire$, and you will feel the same cant remember who was in my mind for casting but i imagine, Carpenter in his prime era, would have had a completely different film, but even less that prime Carpenter, is still worth watching.
the Quote says it all "In France, I'm an auteur; in Germany, a filmmaker; in Britain; a genre film director; and, in the USA, a bum."

Was Carpenter’s Vampires based on this book?

Based on Scream Factory's Wes Craven output, another likely Warner title from them would be Deadly Friend.

Yes! I'm also a Craven completist, so that would be an awesome release! It's been years since I saw it--I only know that Albert from Little House in the Prairie is one of the stars. :P

I kind of expected these to only have maybe an interview or two so I'm pretty impressed by what's on them. The best news, by far, is that Someone's Watching Me is going to have the correct 1.33 aspect ratio in addition to the 1.85.
