Oooh, this is very welcome, I missed the previous BD with a booklet, and was going to overpay to resellers.
So damn happy we getting this here! Had a taped off TV VHS copy for years that was a regular watch back in my childhood days!!
Although, I won't purchase this, I've only seen it once in my whole lifetime and its a movie I'll never forgot. Just brilliant. So, if you do buy it, break that seal and watch it! Don't just shove in your display cabinet,

Aye its a great film and I believe the very first movie to employ cgi effects. Also directed by Nick Castle aka the og Michael Myers/Shape which I never realised until some years back
Never seen this movie for some reason, yet remember reading a comic book adaption of it as a kid. Maybe the trailer put me off: crazy stranger pulls up in his car, forcefully demanding that a kid “Get In!!”. Followed by a sinister voiceover: “Nothing Alex Rogan has ever imagined could prepare him for what he’s about to experience”.

Nightmare fuel if the trailer cut off after that car door slams ominously shut.
