I'm guessing he hasn't, otherwise he'd know that my use of the word 'lightning' was purely descriptive and spoils absolutely nothing about the climax. There is lightning crashing through half the damn movie!

Nobody reviews blu-ray movies, in the city that I'm in. This city, barely review theatrical movies, lest blu-rays! Allied had Timerider for $6.00 buck, and I grabbed it as well. Allied Record Exchange, only had one copy of each title... Both of those blu-rays movies were there, waiting just for me because, nobody else had bought them, and Allied probably had them for a week.

I always admired this overlooked cult gem for 25 years since i was 7 years old when i rented it from one of my former city's video stores and i made myself a copy of it on a blank tape with other stuff with a second VCR when i was 13. In the last decade i yearned for a DVD as i always wished it did but glad these guys got the rights to this movie and i threw the old tape in the trash.

Very nice and crisp picture transfer and terrific surround sound too as it looks and sounds better than those bootleg DVDs fans held on for years and the extras are very nice too as they know how to please genre fans like me!

I've got a lot of great deals on blu-rays from Allied.
It's positively a promo copy, but not necessarily a review copy. Could've been for a fanzine, website or radio station give-away. Maybe a promo for a local video store, hoping they would order some copies for rental. Anytime you see holes in the UPC, it is a promo copy. Back in the vinyl days I'd see this all the time at used record stores, but those also would had a stamp on them stating "promo copy, not for sale" and some legal text about how bad the fines are. No one cared and all used stores sold their promos, 3 of them still stand today so they were never shut down.

Congrats on a killer deal though, I'm semi-jealous. For that price I wouldn't care about slipcovers or UPC punches.

The front cover artwork was what made me want to get it, really glad it seems they have replicated it on the inner sleeve of the Blu-ray.

I'm probably going to pick up the Blu-ray tomorrow (was looking at it today) and am glad I can flip the illustrated cover which I really don't like in this case. Too bad the slip cover will still have it!

Scream do that with all their collectors editions - I always turn them around.

I picked this one up as a blind buy and am really glad I did. The movie was not without flaws but very entertaining and deserves more recognition than it currently has.

I was actually very impressed with the PQ on this release. Just about every other Scream Factory title I've seen (Howling, Lifeforce, Halloween II & III, From Beyond, Ninja III) has some amount of EE combined with some type of digital filtering which work together to lessen the film-like appearance. For whatever reason Prison seems to have escaped with minimal processing and really feels like I'm watching a 35mm print. Kudos to Scream!

Anyone thinks this BD is better looking than those bootleg DVDs you bought from conventions and held on for years? Scream did a nice job on the BD on the HD transfer and extras abound.

Maybe so, maybe no. Related story since I got an amazon email about this a few other titles being on sale today. From Beyond, which is one of those other sale items, recently came to me with a slip. I received that in August but the disc came out in March. This is pushing it just a month more. I've read theories that Scream keeps providing slips for all Collector's Editions, and just because some stores toss em is why you sometimes don't get or see one. This is completely unconfirmed and probably wishful thinking.

By all means if you (or anyone else) orders this now, please tell us if you get a slip (and from where of course).

Me too. Even if I'm not particularly fond of the reversible cover art, I still have the slipcover to look at!

The only ones that I'm lukewarm on is Prince of Darkness and From Beyond. I never cared for either of their artwork (I liked the From Beyond DVD artwork better than the theatrical poster). Same with Prince of Darkness.

But most of them knock it out of the park. I LOVE having the original theatrical poster for Day of the Dead. I like Bub and all, but something about that original Day of the Dead poster...
