...of course no Blu-ray for the original film, but that's typical of Anchor Bay.
So nut buster are you going to be buying this remake? I eagerly shiver and await with anticipation an orgasmic answer.

I have it on pre-order.

I generally like anything Malcolm McDowell is in...even in Halloween 2 he took a shitty stupid fucking role and at least kept it interesting.

About.

FUCKING.

Time!!!

Since they've clearly done such/so much outstanding work in the last 15 years, I feel as most horror fans should that Anchor Bay are one of the greatest things to happen to the genre in the era of DVD. But, I have been nothing short of utterly furious at them for only leaving the previous double feature available/on the market for 3 years before it went OOP. I didn't even know it was out there 'til '05, and it just so happens 2006 was a really hard year for me, financially. I was told around '07-08 that 5 years is the standard amount of time they hold the rights for a movie, about how long they're able to keep a DVD available.

Anyway... as for the remake, I think the original film was good for the first 5 or so minutes, interesting for the next 15 or so. The rest was terrible. But the sequel is incredible. The trailer for the remake makes it look like it's a sequel to the My Bloody Valentine remake. Which sucked. But, I won't lie- I got a laugh just from the sound of McDowall's voice.

also it does look like bestbuy stores is going to have 1-2 copies in store of the dvd rerelease my store is getting only 1 copy and 2 copies of the new remake blu-ray.

i am a huge silent night fan. i have the original 5 vhs,the 2003 OOP double feature dvd,2007 rerelease of the first film the 2009 3-5 OOP 3 disc dvd set. so i'll be getting the dvd/blu-ray combo of the remake and double dip on the rerelease double feature since it is 2 discs and not a flipper disc

actually pretty excited for this. someone over at imdb who got the bluray early says it's very entertaining and GORY, which surprises me as the R rating simply states "bloody violence" which sounds kinda weak.....but apparently not

Just finished it.

Excellent loose remake of the original film. Much like that one it's a mean spirted and sleazy flick (but not as much as that one). Badass killer, fast pace, bloody brutal kills and a great finale.

It was ok, nothing great. Still prefer SNDN over this. Malcolm McDowell's lines were mostly terrible and cringeworthy, hard to watch at times. Killer looked good, and the kills were better than expected.
