Ordered the special edition through an Amazon UK 3rd party seller last night (cost less than 15 pounds which isn't at all bad for an imported title). Am glad that I've been forewarned about some PQ noise and some dnr and sharpening at work. Hopefully it won't prove too distracting whilst watching the film.

Am really looking forward to revisiting this movie as I haven't seen it for several years (since selling off a dvd collection en masse). I am also pleased that this version has the Kim Newman commentary track - I've previously heard it on a UK dvd and very much enjoyed it.

There's also a 'The Look of the Dead Zone' featurette (9 mins). My copy finally arrived today (took long enough). Will properly check out film and extras tomorrow evening. btw Am quite pleased with the extras as it has over 40 mins of featurettes from the old US special edition dvd and also the commentary track from the old UK dvd.

Recently ordered the special edition through deep discount for $17 and change. So worth it. This is such a great film.

This is indeed such a great film that it deserves a blu-ray release that equals that grandeur. So far I've held off on buying as I can't imagine none of the specialty labels want to give this movie a decent release.

Unfortunately, this isn't likely to happen. It's never even seen a Blu release in this country. I'm hoping one of these companies come around. In the meantime, I'll take what I can get. I've certainly seen much worse. Maybe with all the hullabaloo around the new "It", there will be some renewed interest in King catalog adaptations. Here's hoping.

Ordered the special edition through DeepDiscount with help from their one day only free shipping code.

About $18 shipped. Great deal on this underrated Cronenberg/Walken/King film.

Any visible difference between the two Australian versions? Anyone seen both?

So the Australian Disc is region free, are all the extras playable on a Region A player as well?

Received the special edition Australian disc a few days ago; probably watching this weekend. Can anyone comment on quality?

Is the Australian release region free? The one that says "special edition" on it?

This fine film turns out to be another catalog Blu that looks phenomenal when applying forced hdr from my Oppo. Some films can look totally off, but some actually benefit, and look excellent. One such example:
