    Universal,
    I would like you to release a fully-loaded Special Edition (or better yet, Ultimate Edition) DVD of the movie, The People Under The Stairs. This is one of Wes Craven's best movies ever (in fact, I think it runs neck-to-neck with New Nightmare as his best movie ever), and I'd love to see a DVD with an anamorphic widescreen transfer (I don't know the aspect ratio, but hopefully it's in 2.35:1), Dolby Digital Surround Sound 5.1, and a lot of nice extras, like a Commentary, Making-Of Featurette, Still Galleries, and other cool stuff.
    Please release The People Under The Stairs on DVD Universal!

    The People Under The Stairs would make a nice release. This movie is on my list of most-wanted-titles. I would like to see a release of this onto DVD.

    I had read it was coming out this year, but nothing happened. I would love to see this movie on DVD as it is one of my favorties from wes craven. And I believe that the aspect ratio is 1:85.1, but don't quote me on that.

    Vote. I'd like to see a SE with the alternate ending and the gruesome bits Craven to trim to appease the lovely MPAA. Universal, please stop wasting your efforts on these clunky UE's and get back to basics.

    Assuming it is in OAR and is 16x9 enhanced, I'd pre-order a copy for sure.

    No OAR = No Sale

    Yes, Universal, please put release this movie in it's OAR, make it anamorphic and 16x9 enhanced. Then slap on a lot of extras (like a making-of featurette, audio/video commentary track, deleted scenes, etc.) and you have the definitive version of this classic!
