Amazon Pre-order



Quote:
SYNAPSE FILMS PRESENTS THE HIGH-DEFINITION DEBUT OF ONE OF THEIR MOST REQUESTED TITLES TO RE-RELEASE ON BLU-RAY!

Attempting to resurrect their failing marriage, Peter (John Hargreaves, THE ODD ANGRY SHOT) and Marcia (Briony Behets) set out on a camping trip to a deserted stretch of the Australian coastline hoping a long weekend in the sunshine will help them patch their differences. They are a careless couple, littering the countryside with garbage, shooting guns and even driving away after wounding a kangaroo with their automobile. Their callous disregard for the environment soon becomes apparent when the animals start to seek vengeance. Marcia and Peter have proven themselves to be destroyers of nature. Will the animals allow them to leave or will they too be destroyed?

From the writer of ROAD GAMES and RAZORBACK comes this “spooky little gem” (Premiere Magazine), presented in a high-definition transfer from original vault materials with a re-mastered DTS-HD MA 5.1 surround soundtrack created by Synapse Films.

Features

High-Definition 1080p Transfer Supervised by Synapse Films
Re-mastered DTS HD-MA 5.1 Surround Soundtrack
Audio Commentary from Producer Richard Brennan and Cinematographer Vincent Monton
Motion Still Gallery Featuring an Audio Interview with Actor John Hargreaves
Original Theatrical Trailer

I say Tenebre comes in May or June. Then, Manos. Phenomena in September. Suspiria takes November.

Sounds good. I'll pre-order with the April Kino titles once they appear on Amazon.

I expect this will look great, since the DVD transfer was one of the very best Synapse did for that format.

Why can't this be The Lost Weekend, the 1945 Best Picture winner that Universal let MoC handle in the UK (Region B-locked), but still won't touch here even though they released other titles MoC had around the same time (Double Indemnity, Touch of Evil)?

Invest a mere 100 bucks in one of these, and region-coding will never be an issue again.

I have a region-free player; that doesn't keep me from wanting a proper U.S. release.

I used to own this DVD before I sold off most of my DVD collection. It's a pretty eerie flick.

Mother Nature is always one step ahead of us. When young couples go out to the countryside for a vacation, they need to be recycling and doing responsible things instead of being careless and incurring the wrath of the creatures around them.

Never seen this, but Australia set films from this period have a pretty good record in my book.

This was already on my watch list. Synapse did a spectacular job with Demons so I'm looking forward to this.

Up for preorder on Blowitoutahere for the great price of $14.35. A coupon should be coming soon (at least I hope so) and should knock it down lower.

There are no strings on me.

No raccoons or tree creatures were harmed during the making of this post.

Wow, that's pretty cheap. I preordered on Amazon when the price was slashed a couple of bucks to $22.99, which I feel is still a bit steep. Haven't ordered from blowitoutahere in a while so maybe I'll just get it from them even though their shipping is maddeningly slow. I think an $8+ savings could be worth the "aggravation" of waiting

I always receive pre-orders from them on or a day after release date.

The DVD looked pretty good. I imagine that the blu-ray will be a knock-out. Cool flick!
