    Something I didn't know until today.

    Universal is releasing Psycho II, III, and IV in August. Bare bones. Who would buy these, when we got Shout?

    I think they're mostly targeting the "people that won't pay ~$20.00 for a Blu-Ray" demographic.

    The WalMart/Target crowd, I'm guessing.

    Precisely; the casual buyer. The person who'll buy a film regardless of the content.

    That makes sense I guess. But with a target price of around $13 and you can buy a superior release for around $18 (not on sale, or coupons) Shout is the way to go and the most bang for your buck imho. besides, are people really casually picking up Psycho III? These are pretty niche releases. There's a specific market for them and companies like Shout put the time into releasing them with many features and good PQ.

    Munchies rules. This should be the first time it's been released in widescreen on home video too.

    I received the Lifeforce Steelbook today, along with The Unborn and Someone's Watching Me!. They packaged the Steelbook in a separate sealed bubble mailer inside the padded long box (better than Amazon ever would have done) with the rolled Lithograph.

    The Lifeforce Steelbook does look pretty sweet, and I didn't notice any manufacturing imperfections on it. Has anyone checked to confirm yet if the audio is fixed on it?

    Synopsis

    "Horror movies don't get much better than this." – Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com

    Horror master John Carpenter (Halloween, Escape From New York) delivers "a masterful exercise in claustrophobic suspense… [with] elaborate special effects [that] set a high standard for films that followed" (TV Guide). Kurt Russell's iconic and tense performance drives this chilling version of the classic The Thing.

    In the winter of 1982, a twelve-man research team at a remote Antarctic research station discovers an alien buried in the snow for over 100,000 years. Soon unfrozen, the form-changing alien wreaks havoc, creates terror… and becomes one of them.

    Wasn't The Thing just released? Ridiculous. Do it right the first time, Shout!

    Apparently Shout believe (probably correct too) that it's the same 4K transfer that Arrow used:

    Shout2.jpg

    They also posted this on Facebook:

    Shout1.jpg

    But yeah... re-releasing it so shortly after their previous release seems a little absurd. If it is such a popular title for them, why not try to release it on UHD this time? You almost know they will at some point in the future...

    I have the Arrow release already, so this seems moot for double dipping. The new SteelBook artwork looks decent, but not enough to buy just for that.
