    Awesome! Totally awesome! :banana:

    "Children of the Corn" will be mine for sure. I can't believe they got John Franklin and Courtney Gains on the commentary track. I love that they're using the original cover art this time too. I'll pick up "Creepshow 2" if I have the cash.

    that's cool that they will both include the screenplays. Creepshow 2 in DTS. I must be dreaming. :glasses:
     
  6. The artwork for the Creepshow 2 DVD kicks major ass.

    I'll probably get that Creepshow 2 dvd but I don't know about Children of the Corn. I've heard that the movie sucks. But, I also heard the same thing about Creepsohw 2. :nervous:

    I can't wait for that commentary with Isaac and Malachai. I actually read somewhere that the actor that plays Malachai(Courtney Gains) is Mickey Rooney's son. I don't know if its true or not.
     
  10. He looks far too tall to be Mickey Rooney's son...

    all we need now is an SE of the first Creepshow....I demand a Stephen King/George Romero/Tom Savini commentary!
     
  11. Sweet! I want both of these dvds!!

    Agreed! The first Creepshow deserves a remastered SE. It would've been nice to have a King commentary for Maximum Overdrive. I'll get Creepshow 2, but I have no desire to revisit Children. That movie's a bore!

    I don't like either movie enough to buy these DVDs, but god does that Creepshow 2 cover rock. Definitally one of the best I have seen in a long while.

    Well, Fox is reissuing MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE (got the rights from Anchor Bay) on September 7. Let's hope they include a Stephen King commentary.

    Its sad to say but Fox's Maximum Overdrive will be a bare-bone DVD. The only extra is the theatrical trailer.

    Maximum Overdrive is a Warner Bros movie. Why WB dont put out a Special Edition of the movie with audio commentary by Stephen King, deleted scenes...
