    It looks like Anchor Bay will be releasing The Entity on Blu-ray on 7/3/12. It'a already up for pre-order at Amazon.

    I sincerely hope they aren't simply lazy with this one as they have been with many of their other 20th Century Fox licensed Blu-rays lately. Most of them haven't even ported over any (or many) of the old extras, and some haven't even had a menu.

    Anchor Bay released a solid DVD of the film back in 2005. If they screw this one up on Blu-ray...

    Shit, I just noticed this myself over at blu-ray.com. Strangely enough, it doesn't show up at AB's site, but the 1983 movie Tough Enough does (with the same release date, also 20th Century Fox).

    I really hope this is legit, and pray more than anything that AB and Fox do it up right! :)

    Nice, that's one worth upgrading.

    *le sigh*

    I just bought the OOP DVD for around $30 on eBay. I should have known with the AB and Fox deal being reinstated this would have been on its way.

    Oh well, maybe I'll get lucky and there will be no features on that disc and I wouldn't have totally wasted my money.

    Now, where the f**k is CEMETERY MAN!?

    Very cool! The Entity certainly deserves a Blu-ray release.

    I have had a clone of the DVD for years and have still yet to watch it - never seen the flick. I recall seeing bits and pieces on HBO back in the day but don't remember anything in particular about it.

    I used to run like this, but then buying True Lies failed and it hasn't been the same ever since.:cool: Plus that was way before BD when every dvd I would buy would get a SE 2 weeks later. Now that isn't even out on anamorphic dvd much less a BD. You just have to find the right title to break the streak, try True Lies*!:D



    *Someone email Tom Arnold and tell him I did my part in getting the movie released so he can get on to filming the sequel he's been talking about for decades!

    Well, I already own CEMETERY MAN on DVD - I just want it on Blu Ray. I'm not about to go on eBay and pay what folks are asking for a disc that I already own! lol.

    Someone else buy it, maybe they'll get the ironic gears kicked into place.

    CEMETERY MAN deserved a better DVD than what AB gave it - this is such an awesome film. I keep thinking (hoping) this is one of the upcoming mystery Shout titles.

    I'm sure the collector in me will buy this, but it is a pretty low priority. I like The Entity, but it's not a movie I'm going to watch very often.

    This is how I feel. Plus I bought the dvd in 2007 just as it was going OOP ($6 at DeepDiscount, pretty sure I got their last copy!) and have only watched it once in 5 years. If it has the doc it will be hard to pass though, esp. at a low price point. I expect the poster and still gallery to be gone no matter what though, those never make it over to BD from any company it seems.

    Yikes, that's some crappy cover art. :eek: The dvd wasn't really any better, though.

    I think the cover's pretty cool!

    Also, I contacted Fox the other day and suggested to make sure previous extras are not left out on their new releases with Anchor Bay.

    The cover design and taglines really aren't all too different from the original threatrical poster. I think it would have looked better in green/yellow than blues though.
