    As expected, coming 9/11 from MGM US. Pretty low pre-order price, too:

    Killer Klowns from Outer Space:

    Jeepers Creepers:
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...eASIN=B008MU8ZOI&linkCode=as2&tag=cinema09-20

    Not sure about the other two, but CHAINSAW appears to be carrying over the supplements from the prior stacked special edition DVD.

    TCM 2 for me definitely! Whatever with the others. Jeepers Creepers is good and all, but I haven't watched my DVD clone since I first watched the movie so I'm assuming it's not in a very high rotation for me.

    Awesome news! I just wish they'd clear the rights to include the music video for The Dickies' title song for KILLER KLOWNS. It was included on the old VHS, but MIA since.

    A crummy copy is on Youtube: http://youtu.be/0NmbNOiOy1c

    I've somehow never actually seen JEEPERS CREEPERS.

    Very cool! I plan on getting TCM 2 and possibly Killer Klowns. Most likely I will pass on Jeepers Creepers.

    That would be great. It's been a long time since I last watched it, but the documentary included on the TCM 2 special edition was very well made, highly entertaining, and almost as long as the feature film.

    Thanks for that link. I actually remember that song after hearing it. It used to be in the cable version as well. Fucking music rights, just for this I'm gonna go steal more music now!:p
    With those price points, these should show up instantly on the $10 rack everywhere, maybe even the $8 bin at Best Buy.

    I'm glad the SRPs are low. Jeepers Creepers for sure, but I will probably pick up the other two as well.

    Jeepers Creepers was actually the first DVD I ever bought. I remember buying it from Best Buy the day it was released.

    Ugh, could they have picked worse coverart for the Killer Klowns Blu-ray?

    But I'll gladly pre-order this and TCM2.

    It's one of my favorite flicks from my teenage years, but the DVD will do me just fine. I agree, but I really need more than just the same old supplements ported over from a DVD that I already own. Frankly, I'm not sure what else they could find that wasn't already given. A new cut with extra scenes?

    It's nice that MGM is finally bringing their "A" game when it comes to '80s blu-rays--but I'm wondering when the fuck they're gonna drop Lifeforce for fuck's sake? It never even got an anamorphic dvd, goddamn it.

    Also, I'd really like to see The Howling, Scanners--and I'm probably alone on this last one, but fuck it--Swamp Thing (uncut).

    I never picked up the TCM2 DVD, so I'm looking forward to the Blu ray. Lifeforce would definitely be a welcome addition as well.

    I was actually expecting LIFEFORCE to be announced with this batch -- maybe next year?

    I went ahead and preordered all three; if I think JEEPERS CREEPERS sucks, I'm blaming you, Cpt. Hook! :)

    It's a candy-colored camp parade as the KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE make their way to blu ray from MGM. When a group of costumed aliens land on Earth in their big top spaceship, only a pair of teens can keep them from harvesting humans as an intergalactic food source. They try to convince the authorities, including Sheriff John Vernon, but who's going to believe their tales of popcorn-shooting guns, acidic cotton candy, lethal shadow puppets and more? Any child of the '80s should have fond memories of this one -- ostensibly a comedy, it's a pretty deranged, dementedly imaginative flick and its incessant cable play ensured a long life in pop culture bar trivia matches. All hail the Chiodos!
