And I don't know if satisfied is not regretting buying but I definitely don't regret buying any of them.

I know the reason I'm considering it is because this will be the only time to buy it. I believe Lieberman when he says that. Right about now, I know I would have plonked down $30 for Possession if I knew that Blue Underground disc was going to fall through and when the hell is that getting re-released (Criterion should really be looking into this one). Never seen that one before.

I too, own the VHS, and have been wanting a Blu-Ray of this, but $34.95 is a little bit too much. Will have to wait a while on this.

I ordered the Blu. Jeff Lieberman will be at the Chiller end of April, and I'm sure he'll have the BD there. But I'm not taking the chance these might sell out. I love Remote Control and I'm happy to support the director.

Never seen this but it looks right up my alley. Unfortunately it is $10 to ship to Canada! So I would be looking at $45 to get this one. Hmm... decision, decisions...

That's actually about dead on now. The USPS increased international rates recently, and a small First Class International package to Canada now comes in at $8.55.

Prices to Europe, etc. are even more now...practically doubled over what they used to be. Just to ship a CD in a jewelcase within a small package (via 1st Class) is almost $14 to Europe.

I went ahead and splurged since I'm getting a tax refund. I bought both a regular DVD and a Bluray copy figuring I could trade/sell either or both down the line. I hope Lieberman has better luck selling these at conventions. The Bluray was numbered 151 out of a thousand. The DVD was only #5! (Again out of a thousand.) Maybe wait and see if the he drops prices in a few months. Super fast first class shipping (I only ordered late Monday night.)

I watched the BD this weekend and I really enjoyed it. The transfer looked pretty good and its probably the best it will ever look. Remote Control reminds me of a less over-the-top TerrorVision. I think I even like it better than TerrorVision even though TV had some awesome creature effects. Kevin Dillon is just an awesome 80’s “bad boy”…he fits the persona real well and the way in which he delivers his lines is sort of like an 80’s version of a The Fonz. I also love the whole video store setting...it’s fun trying to pick out box art.

Picked this up directly from Jeff at Cinema Wasteland. Also had him sign my VHS of the film. Won't have a chance to check out the upgrade until I'm back from my trip.

Te Bluray looks good, way better then any previous version. Lots of detail including easy to read video boxes and both male lead actors uni-brows! If you're a fan of this movie, the Blu is worth getting.

It looks like Lieberman will be at the Niagara Falls Comic Con in June which I plan on hitting up. I wonder if he'll still have some copies left then, as $30 would be better then $40.

I have been spending way too much on movies lately, so I decided to wait until May 1st (the next billing cycle) to order this. Just received it today!

#280 of 1000 in case anyone is curious how fast these are moving...

Strange, I just ordered mine last weekend and I'm #265. Maybe he's doing them in batches?

I read on blu-ray.com's forum that Jeff Lieberman was intentionally sending these out of sequence to confuse how many had actually been sold; if true then the numbered item a person receives may not indicate quantity remaining.
