    Looks like Severin is tackling it according to this post on FB:

    "Terrific commentary session with Director Peter Medak and Producer Joel B. Michaels on another as yet 'officially' unannounced favorite."

    I'm definitely excited The Changeling appears to be coming out soon, but David Gregory has produced bonus features for other labels even if he is the head honcho at Severin. So it could be a domestic Severin release, a domestic release by someone else, or even a foreign release that he's supervising the bonus features for.

    Of course it's coming out. I only just imported that piece of shit 1080i upconvert for $50 from Japan a few months ago.

    I saw hints of this last week, and it is indeed great news. Definitely one of my favorites, it still chills me to the bone.

    I read reviews of that and subsequently avoided it like the plague.

    That’s why I always wait unless I can find a really good deal. It is a very rare occasion when a film fails to receive a domestic release. I made that mistake by buying the UK Twins of Evil literally the day before Synapse announced their superior edition. Never again.

    Agreed, but on the flip side I do have quite a few German Blu-rays that are actually superior to the later US Blu-ray releases. Most were even imported quite cheaply.

    Japanese imports though, whoa...almost always expensive as hell. I rarely ever gamble with those unless I see some good solid reviews, tech specs, etc..

    Other than Happinet, I haven't been pleased with Japanese blu-ray's. I still have some great blu-ray's from around the world that have never made it to the States. Just glancing at my collection I have Californication (complete series), House (complete series), Bug, Memoirs of an Invisible Man, House on Haunted Hill (1999), Bitter Moon, Cemetery Man, Sleeping Beauty (2012), The Getaway, The Pianist, The Red Violin, Amazon Women on the Moon, Judgment Night, The Last Seduction, Malena, Cashback, Return of the Living Dead Part 3 (theatrical), Underworld: Blood Wars 3D, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter 3D, The Gift (Raimi), Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid.

    Which is why I qualified the statement with “really good deal”. Every disc I’ve ever bought from Amazon UK cost the same or less than a comparable domestic release would have, even after factoring in shipping.
