    MGM, many here at the forum have expressed concern over the aspect ratio of this cult classic. If you have not, we ask that you please involve Dan O'Bannon in any decisions and that this film get a special edition treatment. Thanks.

    Yes MGM, PLEASE contact Dan O' Bannon about this. Perhaps have him record an audio commentary on which he can firmly state the film's OAR (I'd just love to hear him talk about the movie anyway.)
    *Any* other bonus material you can add would be fantastic! This is one of THE MOST REQUESTED cult/horror titles! There is stuff that exists which you can add. PLEASE consider this.

    Yes!!! This film just must have loads of extras and be in its correct OAR! I am a huge horror fan, and Return of the Living Dead is one of my absolute favorite horror films. I REALLY would love a special edition, and I know that tons of other horror fans would love an SE as well. There is lots of material out there that could be included, and it shouldn't be hard to get a commentary track. And of course you need to be absolutely certain that you release ROTLD in its OAR. Do whatever it takes to see that it is released in its correct OAR. MGM, please do this classic justice!

    This is a must. A SE would be nice but just the movie is going to rule. Hopefully it can turn out like killer klowns did. 10 bucks for an awesome movie and extras to boot. Can't beat that with a stick. BRING ON THE RETURN. Peace

    Someone from MGM(I can't recall the name) participated in another thread about this release, and said straight out, that the dvd WILL be 1.85:1 anamorphic. WOO HOO!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    An isolated film score would be great, too.
    This is one of my favorite movies.

    This one should sell very well. I think they should make it a full-blown Special Edition like Carrie and Dressed to Kill. I know I'm definitely gonna buy it, as long as it's UNCUT! [​IMG]

    Actually, I really don't want brains. But hey, this was a great fun horror movie and it deserves to be on DVD

    While it's great to know that I can retire my VHS version next year, a special edition of RotLD would be an even greater cause for celebration.

    I just wanted to emphasize that this is indeed a much-loved title, and that a special edition is indeed justified.
