    Fox/MGM just announced that they will be releasing a special edition of Child's Play in September. I don't remember all of the details from the announcement but it's definitely 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen and features a commentary (with participants TBD) and retrospective documentaries. I'll post up more details and cover-art as soon as they are made available. It's about freaking time, huh?

    My source is the Fox/MGM announcement that came over today. I know it's not posted anywhere else yet but trust me ... it's legit. I don't remember the exact street date and features but it's for sure widescreen with commentary and docs. Oh ... and I'm the same guy that posted the Hello Mary Lou: Prom Night 2 announcement a few months back so I'm not just making stuff up.

    I heard around last year that they were planning for a SE dvd. So I guess it'll be arriving the same time as their typical "Halloween" wave of DVDs. I wonder if any Midnight Movie announcements will be made soon....

    I'm hoping they also give us The Town That Dreaded Sundown this fall, as well.

    I wonder if they'll have this out early at Fest of Fear this year in August, as Brad Douriff will be in attendance.

    Oh, I do too. That's one creepy film that I've been waiting for on DVD a long time now. Isn't the OAR 2.35:1? I remember reading that somewhere.

    Here we go.

    Sure do hope that's the case. There's still a lot of titles available to MGM and Fox for the Midnite Movies series!

    :glasses: Finally! This is a must have. I've been waiting for it since forever.
    I'll try not to use the dancing banana thing, though.

    Speaking of Pumpkinhead, MGMHD (channel on DirecTV) will be airing a HD version of Pumpkinhead in a few days.

    that's cool but i think the 97 minute runtime is wrong unless it includes deleted/alternate footage wasn't the original dvd 87 minutes?I also want to see mgm bring hospital massacre on dvd

    Fox changed the run time on their website to show 90 minutes. And oh yeah ... it's $14.99 SRP so this should be ~$10 out in stores.

    Nice. Hopefully they'll use the original poster.
