    This was one of the films recommended to Kino by Scorpion Releasing. Love this film. Hopefully they can port over the commentary and interview from the UK DVD release.

    Didn't MGM commission some extras that they then dumped when they went MOD? Hopefully those will be available to Kino.

    I held off on the DVD-R hoping this would come 'round and I'm very glad now that I did.

    Really happy with this Blu-ray. I rewatched the film and dug into all of the extras last week. I was happy to see all the features from the UK DVD carried over along with the MGM extras that were never released. The new stuff was great to see too as Carpenter always gives good interviews and the original trailer was nuts (it gave away the entire movie!)

    I sat down with the guys from the Screamcast Podcast to discuss the Blu-ray. We also talked at length about the making of the alien film I was involved in entitled The Device and ran down our top 10 alien abduction flicks. You can take a listen at http://www.thescreamcast.com/2015/01/06/screamcast-43-the-device-2014-the-quatermass-xperiment-1955/

    I already picked up The Quatermass Xperiment a while back, but that's an excellent price. These sellers have other Kino titles up as well. I did purchase White Lightning for $8.95. That was something I wanted to upgrade from the old DVD, but couldn't bring myself to spend $15.00 on it. Thanks CPT HOOK.

    Yeah, I ended up skipping Quatermass and picked up White Lightning for $8.75 as well, along with Drum for $9.99. Great prices on these.

    They also have "Cult of the Damned" blu for $10.95 and free shipping also on Ebay. I was kinda on the fence about that one but that's a decent price.:)
