    Doubt there will be any extras carried over.

    Hopefully it is more affordable than the Fright Night blu-ray. $30 + shipping for a no-frills blu-ray is ridiculous, even if the movie is in hi-def.

    I know that when they released Fright Night I found the $30.00 price tag too high. Now I think it sells for almost three times that amount on Ebay.

    They're listed that high, but do they actually sell?

    I felt the same way about fright night. I passed, and haven't regretted it at all. I like NOTLD 90, but not as much as fright night. So if twilight time treats this similarly in terms of supplements and pricing, I'll certainly be passing on this as well...

    Yes. eBay shows 7 listings since 05/25/2012 where Fright Night sold for $78.00 or more, and 6 of the 7 sold for more than $100.00.

    Not only do they sell for that much, but apparently the magnets alone have sold for up to $15.

    Yea and somehow mine didnt show up with the magnet - but I dont regret spending 30.00 on it at all - they did a great job on it and I really have enjoyed the blu

    If I recall, Fright Night sold out in less than a week. I'll be curious to see how As Good As It Gets sells, which is released on Tuesday.

    Have any of their other releases sold out?


    Also, this might sound like a weird question, but do they charge your card as soon as you pre-order, or when the order ships?

    They need to get the uncut deaths as an extra and Savini's beind the scenes footage. Dout they will lisence the existing features, maybe they will.

    I'll bet the farm that there are zero extras.

    I spoke to the folks at Twilight Time about this one a few months back, the only extras will be the trailer and the isolated score.

    They're once again not allowed nor budgeted to produce new extras nor access to the ones Sony already has made.

    Ohhhhh I have been waiting for As Good As It Gets. Such a great movie; I'm on it and NOTLD 1990, too. HD first, extras second. Both would be good but I'll take high quality presentation first.

    I agree, but the asking price ($30 + $5 shipping) is still absurd given the blu-ray market. You can get most special edition blu-rays for $15 / $20.

    As ridiculous as this may sound to some, if it is going to be barebones I'd almost rather Mill Creek get it, because at least then it will be $5.

    If I'm not mistaken, both Mill Creek and Twilight Time are at the mercy of whatever master they are given by the studio. I imagine a release by either company would be comparable in terms of quality.

    Well you could wait and end up paying $60+ when it sells out just like what happened with FRIGHT NIGHT.

    Everyone who took issue with the price of that one ended up without it or paying almost double for it.

    It's worth it to me given that I LOVE the film and it's a fair price as far as I'm concerned for a collector's item.

    For someone that used to regularly buy laserdiscs ~$50, I don't mind a $30 bluray. I know it's a different environment these days but supporting an indie studio like this may help us get other stuff Columbia has no interest in, like Idle Hands!
