Even though I already own the Lions Gate Cujo blu ray, I'll double dip if the new release is a significant upgrade - it's a favourite. Of course, my priorities are audio/video before special features.

I don't remember considering Ticks very good...

TICKS on blu!

One of my few favorites from the '90s, Tony Randel's TICKS (1993) finally makes its way to blu courtesy of Olive Films! When a hillbilly pot farmer decides to use growth hormones to juice up his crop, he doesn't expect a nest of bulked-up bloodsuckers to be the end result. A group of inner-city troubled teens on a weekend retreat are soon battling these mutated parasitic arachnids in a fight to the gooey death. A last-gasp celebration of practical FX before CGI became king with a fun supporting cast including Ami Dolenz, Seth Green and Clint Howard, TICKS is probably the only chance you'll have to see The Fresh Prince's Carlton gorily explode out a giant bug. Supplements include a new commentary with director Tony Randel and star Clint Howard, moderated by Nathaniel Thompson. I can't wait.

Preorder:

Cujo Blu-ray review: http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film4/blu-r...jo_blu-ray.htm

Unless the price drops below $5, or you're a huge fan of the film, it doesn't sound worth it if you already own the Lionsgate Blu-ray. No 5.1 audio, not even the subtitles ported over.

Yes all region A locked. Why would they release Cujo. The Lionsgate Blu was very good. Good picture, DTS-HD Master 5.1 audio and extras.

All the Olive titles I own are region free, DVDBeaver always, ALWAYS posts that they are region locked when they aren't. His piece of shit Momitsu player always tells him the wrong region info.

Hi Dickieduvet. Thats interesting. I have always avoided Olive Blu rays because of Dvdbeavers region locked claim. How many have you tried?

Go for it. It's a good one.

I'm upgrading, and I'm trying to sell my VHS. My listing for it just ended on eBay, and no bites.

Superb. I'll look into Olive now. Always avoided them before thanks to DVDBeaver. I presume all their releases are region free if the titles you have tried are? Still cant see why they have releasd Cujo. Surely this release is inferior to the Lionsgate Blu.

Even though it's not horror, I'd love to see them release Little Darlings. I think Paramount owns it, but I doubt it's part of the deal.

Yes, Tatum O' Neal, Kristy McNichol and Armand Assante. Great coming of age film.
