    Warner seems to be ramping up production of Archive titles on Blu-ray so there's a chance, however small, that this might make the leap. I'd say why bother with DVD - they should make this a straight-to-BD release.

    I don't remember being too impressed with this the first time I watched it, but I will have to give it another shot this year. I think watching it with a bunch of friends and beers was probably not the best choice for this type of film. I think I will appreciate it more on second viewing.

    I think I might pick this up if I see it at my local Movie Trading Company, I've never seen it before!

    Is it worth picking up?

    I watched this a couple of days ago, and for the first time, I really connected with it. I think I've gone in with the wrong mind-set on previous viewings, probably because of reviews praising how scary it is. And it is scary, but it's not driven by suspense and jolts like Halloween or The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. It's the unsettling mood and the intimacy with the protagonist that is the real power here. Zohra Lampert's unbalanced internal monologues set the tone, and we are never quite sure how much of the supernatural goings on we can really trust. Add to that the rich visual imagery and you have a remarkable little film. Make with the Blu-ray already!

    This one is now on torrents in 1080p under this name:
    Lets.Scare.Jessica.To.Death.1971.1080p.AMZN.WEBRip.DDP2.0.x264-ABM

    Does it mean an official Blu-ray is coming out soon or not? Love this movie!

    That Kim Newman guy leaked the news that he did an interview for Scream Factory's upcoming blu-ray of Let's Scare Jessica To Death.
