    I know its not much, but something is better than nothing. I heard my first rumor from a very reliable source that Universal has plans to release Wes Craven's People Under the Stairs. I know nothing else, than that. Like I said, its not much, but until now, we've heard nothing! I can fianlly retire my MAR Laserdisc.

    This is one of my guilty pleasures.
    Whoo hoo!!
    On a personal note I got a crush on AJ Langer after seeing this flick. (Shes the abused girl in the film) I sent her a fan letter and she responded with a personalized autograph. I still have it. [​IMG]

    Excellent. This is one of the few VHS titles I've kept after my conversion to DVD!

    I would look forward to seeing the Secretary of P***y in action. [​IMG]
    It's a bit goofy, but it's got some good bits to it as well, especially Ving.

    Great! And not a moment to soon! I just recently cracked my laserdisc copy, so I`m in need of a replacement. This was my favorite Horror flick, I must have seen it 20+ times in the theater.
    Before I`m called crazy let me explain. When the movie was released I was in junior high and spent my days hanging out in a pool hall all day, and there happend to be a movie theater next door $1 a show. So durring its run there it seems every day there would always be a group of people going over to check it out, so I always went with.
    Anyways, Killer movie, I hope the DVD will include some deleted scenes(a few scenes always bothered me, like something was missing) or atleast a Craven Commentary.

    Its good to see that others appreciate this movie. I started a People... thread in the Studio Feedback here for Universal, but it never seemed to take off....
    Even if its a barebones widescreen release, I'll be happy, but deleted scenes and a commentary would be welcome too! [​IMG]
    As soon as I hear something, I'll let you all know.

    they did release it in region 2. PQ & AQ are average and it suffers from PAL speed up. it's better than nothing, but a bit too close to nothing for my liking.

    Brazil has a legitimate region 1&4 anamorphic widescreen version out now with the only extra being a trailer.

    Sorry to threadcrap, but I'm not surprised in the least that this film is yet to be released on DVD. I thought it was horrendously bad, and yes, I have considered the possibility that it's supposed to be a satire. Ugh. I am waiting for AB's "Hills Have Eyes" SE due in Fall, though(although that film is no masterpiece either).

    The Brazilian DVD is decent and playable on Region 1 NTSC systems; it'll probably be the same disc they release to R1.

    Does anyone have a link where this can be bought online?

    One of my favorites and among the few left on my must have list.

    Alex, I would try dvdsforboneheads.com. [​IMG]
    And the Spindler/Rice battle spills into the software section.
    Seriously, ebay is probably the best place to check.
