    Cool news! It's not Craven's finest moment but it's far from the worst either. I'd love for some studio to rescue Chiller from the terrible public domain editions out there.

    Really enjoyed the book as a kid but when I saw the movie many years later I wasn’t that into it. That was a while ago though and I wouldn’t mind giving the movie another go in HD.

    I already have it on dvd from years ago so I will give it a pass. But that's my only reason why. Sometimes I feel guilty when these little companies blu ray a movie I have had for years on dvd. I Love that they do it but I already bought it legit a long time ago.

    I'm pretty sure I've seen this. I can't remember anything about it besides not thinking much of it.

    EDIT: Found it on YouTube:


    Skimmed through it and it looks rather dull. Not going to bother watching it through but it's here for whoever's interested :)

    Saw a few years back, and it was very forgettable.
    Mediocre acting, soap opera elements, and just cheesy as fuck, but sadly not in a good way.
    Craven was no Dan Curtis, when it came to TV horror.
