Sweet. I'll have to update both of these. Thanks for the info!

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.

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.

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!

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...

Why not? Besides, it has my favorite Creepshow tale... The Raft! :fire:

Definitely double dipping on Creepshow 2. One of my favorite anthologies, and I think its much better than the okay, but overrated original. The Raft is one of the best anthology segments ever, and The Hiychhiker is a fine segment as well.

Creepshow 2 cover art is awesome. Haven't decided on COTC yet.

This is good news indeed! But where the hell is Children of the Corn 2? My collection is incomplete, dammit!

I'm glad I didn't buy this one yet.
The comic cover is nice. I might not pick it up right away but I definitely will soon.
Thanks for the ride, lady.

I wonder just how cheap these 2 will be when they are released? Maybe a price drop if both are bought at the same time.

DVD Maniacs review of the Children of the Corn Divimax release (http://www.dvdmaniacs.net/Reviews/A-D/children_of_the_corn.html)

They only gave 3.5 / 5 for the picture quality, but good to see that the documentary is almost 40mins in lenght.

I made screenshot comparison between 1st AB Children of the corn and Divimax release.

This time (unlike Creepshow 2) I prefer Divimax release's picture quality, but why they made it 1.66 anamorphic first time and now 1.85? There's picture information missing from the top and bottom compared to first AB release.

If CotC was 1.85 in theaters and not 1.66 then it's OK of course. Anyone know the OAR?

edit: 1st AB top, Divimax bottom
