Now that is an awesome cover for a really bad awful movie. Is there any technical information on this release yet?

Whoa, nice! Maybe I could get even rid of that Sony DVD which includes that other crappy movie on the flip side.

I hope it at least has the English audio track, but CMV Laservision are usually good about that on their DVD releases at least. I have no idea what the quality of their Blu-ray releases are like...?

I hope this is a proper Blu-Ray release... the Germans do love to upscale DVDs for their Blu-Ray releases so I hope that's not the case with this one.

Now that does look interesting. Great cover. I have The Incredible Melting Man on the CMV label and that is pretty good. Would love to find out the stats on this. May do some digging around. Love this movie. Has a wonderful early 80's atmosphere. About time we had an upgrade from the old non anamorphic Anchor Bay disc. Will have to check Amazon de to see prices.

Just checked Amazon de. Not on there yet. Only other info i could find was that there is a two disc version with a CD of the soundtrack. No sign of any specs though.

I wish the movie could match that cover. If that were the case I'd still have that old Anchor Bay double feature dvd. Since both movies on there bored me to tears and it was OOP at the time, I sold it.
That cover almost makes me want to try it again. My memories of watching it make me not want to.

Wow, cool cover.... looks like the lady in the window got a little older looking over the years. ha haha ha
Yeah, seen this on the movie channel in summer of 83, and remembered liking it ,i was only 10. but seen it again like 4 years ago on comcast free movies and it didnt hold up. I must have had alot of patience back then for all the boring parts in between kills...

I see the DVD cover has some images that appeared on the Argentinian poster and Mexican lobby card. My recollection of the film isn't that good either but I haven't seen the film in over two decades so I would certainly give it a another view.

Nobody knows yet. The Boogey Man, Alien 2 (1980) and Intruder (1988) are going to be their first ever Blu-ray releases.
