    I already upgraded with their last blu of this title and haven't even looked at it yet, so I doubt I'll triple-dip.

    I don't have the first blu so I'll definitely snag this one up.

    Same. Didn't grab the last blu. Will definitely pick this one up.

    I really enjoyed this movie for some reason. I remember watching it back in high school and thinking it was very documentary-like. Similar to things like Last House and Maniac.

    I first saw it in 2007 and it completely blew me away. It also scared the shit out of me and I had a hard time trying to take out the trash that night. Horror movies rarely do that to me but Henry succeeded.

    Own the first blu. Satisfied with that. I'm sure the new one will be great.

    I was lucky enough to find the first blu release for under $10 - picked it up so I'll skip this release.

    I totally agree. Michael Rooker's performance is chilling. His deadpan look and facial expressions are priceless. What always surprised me in this film was how people, particularly the young woman at the end of the film, gave him their total trust. One look at him made the hair on my neck stand up.

    I first saw this during my early teenage years and the disturbing home invasion scene always stuck with me.

    Director John McNaughton is a really great interview subject, so I'm a bit perplexed that so many people didn't get the Dark Sky 2-disc 20th Anniversary set. Plus, the deleted scenes.

    I have the DVD set, but never got around to the first blu. I am definitely interested in the new restoration, though.

    Got a chance to see this at a local theater earlier tonight. :cool: The movie looked and sounded great.

    The new Blu should blow away the old one.



    Fuck the bears.

    I picked up the old Blu release at Best Buy for like $7 but haven't watched it yet. Glad to hear that it sounds and looks great. I will pick up the new one and probably dump the older version but I will compare the two first just in case.
