So much this. That is why I love horror films in this vain infinitely more than the shallow gore-fests. I need to pick this up, but I want to get it with the slip so I'm waiting for the right one. Love the movie. Adrienne Barbeau is quite the lovely lady in this, and with a killer late night radio voice too.

I ordered my copy from Amazon and it arrived yesterday (Halloween)! How perfect is that. But upon opening the package I noticed that it was resealed in cheap shrink wrap - the kind that you use a heat gun on to seal it up tight. I still opened it though and also discovered remnants of the 'original' factory shrink wrap still stuck to the spine like often happens, and that there was no slip cover. You could also see that when they used a heat gun on it that it warped/ slightly melted the clear plastic on the front of the hard case. I have already processed a replacement with Amazon and will be shipping this one back. What a disappointment. I have my 30 days to get it returned so I may just watch this one before sending it out. The actual disc looks mint so I am not sure why it has been opened.

This blu ray does indeed come with a cardboard slip cover doesn't it? I bought it for my JC collection.

Thanks - Dana

I hate reseals! Did it have one of those security tabs on the top of the case (with the film title on it)? I think all BDs should have those or proper BD cigar bands so consumers know they're getting a new product.

I had Star Trek: TNG Season Three a few weeks back from Amazon UK and it's shrink-wrapped. I hope that isn't a reseal, other seasons are in Cellophane.

The one defective Blu-ray I got from Amazon, The Entity, they just sent me a replacement, I didn't need to mail it back. In that case, the audio was screwed up.

Nope, it did not have that film titled security tab at the top. That was another giveaway to me. I have also received CD's before from Amazon that weren't even shrink-wrapped! Totally opened but looking brand new.
