    That's why I make the region free copies to play on my panasonic DMP550 ( I have no idea how to "fix" it to a region free player)

    The region free player I have , while it worked , was just a hassle and the image wasn't up to my expectations

    I'm not selling my copy. I was one of the first 1,000 that pre-ordered, and I haven't ordered anything else from them, even though I did want the 1990 remake of Night Of The Living Dead, thought the price was too much, but I'm a fan of Fright Night.

    Sony are releasing Fright Night and Christine on Blu-ray in September in Germany, for those interested.

    SONY is? I wonder if this will finally include that reunion featurette that was filmed shortly before the Twilight Time release. If this is just a barebones port then this isn't for me.

    I just sold my Twilight Time discs to a member on a Swedish forum. Glad I did it before the EU disc was released, or it would have been impossible after that ;)
    Pre-ordered the Swedish BD of Christine for about 1/3rd of the price of the Twilight Time disc :D

    It´s released by Sony, so I guess the EU part of Sony is more interested in releasing the classics themselves.

    I´m not gonna bother with the TT disc of "The Blob", I can wait for the EU release instead.

    Eureka are releasing it as a limited edition SteelBook through Zavvi in the UK:

    http://www.zavvi.com/blu-ray/fright...-edition-steelbook-includes-dvd/11361631.html

    Eureka Classics is proud to present this iconic modern horror classic in a new Dual-Format special edition.

    SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES:
    • 4K digital restoration
    • Original stereo PCM soundtrack and 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio options (on the Blu-ray)
    • English subtitles for the deaf and hearing-impaired
    • You’re So Cool, Brewster! A new two-hour version of the definitive 2016 documentary on the making of Fright Night, focusing on the first film, created exclusively for this release
    • What is Fright Night featurette, a 2016 video piece featuring cast and crew interviews (BLU-RAY ONLY)
    • Tom Holland: Writing Horror, a 2016 video piece featuring interviews with Holland and his collaborators (BLU-RAY ONLY)
    • Rowdy McDowall: From Apes to Bats, a 2016 video piece featuring archival footage of McDowall and cast and crew interviews (BLU-RAY ONLY)
    • Fear Fest 2 2008 reunion panel featuring Tom Holland, Chris Sarandon, William Ragsdale, Stephen Geoffreys, Amanda Bearse, Jonathan Stark and moderated by Rob Galluzzo (BLU-RAY ONLY)
    • Shock Till You Drop Present Choice Cuts with Tom Holland and Ryan Turek, a three-part video interview on the film (BLU-RAY ONLY)
    • The full electronic press kit, featuring extensive on-set interviews and behind-the-scenes footage (BLU-RAY ONLY)
    • Stills and memorabilia from Tom Holland’s personal collection (BLU-RAY ONLY)
    • G-rated and R-rated theatrical trailers (BLU-RAY ONLY)
    • PLUS: a booklet featuring a new essay by Craig Ian Mann (STEELBOOK EXCLUSIVE)
    I would suggest pre-ordering promptly, as it's rumored to be limited to just 1000 copies. A standard release will follow next year.

    Since it's a Eureka release, it will most probably be Region B "locked" and does specify that in the product details.

    The new "You’re So Cool, Brewster!" is a plus, but will be an edited version from the full 4-hour doc that can be purchased separately from Cult Screenings.

    Looks like it has already sold out, so you'll definitely have to wait now! :eek:

    I'm not a big fanboy of SteelBooks, but this one should look pretty cool. Eureka does a really good job with them. The archival footage of McDowall and cast and crew interviews should be a real gem too. I had heard that McDowall had some footage from the shoot, but since he died it's existence was unknown.
