    Always loved Saturn 3 such an underrated flick. Can't wait to finally see this in high definition.

    I would have preferred strange and deadly occurrence for TV horror instead.

    I'd take FORBIDDEN WORLD over most movies. I haven't seen SATURN 3 since I was very young (VHS days). I've been desparately waiting for a decent widescreen presentation so that I could revisit it. With Harvey Keitel, Farrah Fawcett and Kirk Douglas even if it's slow there will be something worthwhile.

    Martin Amis wrote the screenplay for Saturn 3? Can't wait to get my hands on this blu-ray.

    Presented in 1080p High-Definition in the original 2.35:1 Panavision aspect ratio, the transfer is a real beauty, breathing new life into the film and making for some very pleasurable viewing. Detail is sharp and outstanding, with the textures bringing out all the crevices and sweat on the actors’ faces, fleshtones are life-like and colors are also exceptional. Even the film’s numerous darker scenes are so much clearer now, so if you thought the DVD looked great, wait until you see this. Likewise, the DTS-HD Master Audio is solid, with nice range, and the sounds of those screeching cicadas really stand out!

    Looking forward to this - sounds choice!

    The cover is reversible, with the flip side displaying the artwork found on the previous MGM Midnite Movies DVD release.

    Yeah, we won't be doing that :lol:

    yeah, that sounded pretty odd to me too. regardless, I'm looking forward to this one. I remember always being curious about the massive clamshell cover in video stores as a youth. it seemed very rough and menacing. I saw the film once, years ago, and was a little let down when it did turn out to be more of a werebug film than a werewolf film. my tastes have definitely changed a lot in a decade, though. Can't wait to give it a second chance.

    This is going to look great in one of my black BD cases. I sort of wanted to wait for the Arrow edition, as it'll probably have more extras, but since this got a positive review I'll just grab this one. A nice way to end 2013, this with Saturn 3 and Tourist Trap from Full Moon.
