I certainly didn't expect this! Fantastic news! Pre-ordered! Hope they'll get Cronenberg to do a commentary

Wow that looks awesome. All surreal and heightened like. Looks similar to Suspiria maybe.

This film any good?

I really prefer the Amaray on this title, but why do they have the They Came From Within title on it?

My guess is that that's the reverse artwork and that we'll be shown the newly commissioned artwork closer to release.

Nothing like Suspiria. It's very low budget and looks it. But like Cronenberg's other early body horror movies, it has some really interesting ideas. If you liked Rabid, The Brood, Scanners, etc., it's definitely worth a go.

I don't know if they'd be able to get it as an extra but I'd be interested to see Barry Norman's review of Shivers from the Film '75 (or '76?) TV show again.

I don't know if it's a false memory but I seem to remember him being so disgusted by it and so disparaging of the film that it made me really want to see the film for myself!

Release Date: 29 September 2014
Format: Dual Format Blu-ray + DVD
Starring: Paul Hampton, Joe Silver, Lynn Lowry
Directed by: David Cronenberg

Synopsis: BEING TERRIFIED IS JUST THE BEGINNING…

Initially reviled in its native land (some critics took exception to the fact the film was largely funded by the Canadian taxpayer), Shivers is an intensely claustrophobic, subversive masterpiece and an essential entry in the oeuvre of one of the horror genre’s most gifted auteurs. Some 40 years after its release, it still retains its power to shock.

Starliner Island is an idyllic community. Cut off from the rest of the world, the luxury apartment block affords its occupants the chance to escape from the hustle and bustle of the big city. But this isolation is to prove fatal when a new breed of parasite – a combination of aphrodisiac and venereal disease which arouses sexual aggression in its hosts – is let loose in the building, resulting in an orgy terror and mayhem.

Known under a host of alternate titles such as The Parasite Murdersand They Came From Within!, Shivers is the startling debut full-length feature from director David Cronenberg which anticipates the body-horror concerns of his later films such as The Fly and Videodrome.

SPECIAL EDITION CONTENTS:
- New High Definition Digital Transfer supervised and approved by writer-director David Cronenberg
- High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) and Standard Definition DVD presentation
- Original mono audio (uncompressed PCM on the Blu-ray)
- Optional English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
- Parasite Memories: The Making of Shivers – A brand new documentary featuring interviews with stars Barbara Steele, Allan Kolman and Lynn Lowry, special effects genius Joe Blasco and film critic Kier-La Janisse
- On Screen! – An episode of the Canadian television programme which documents the release history of Shivers, featuring interviews with Cronenberg, co-producer Don Carmody, as well as other cast and crew
- From Stereo to Video – A specially-commissioned video essay by Caelum Vatnsdal, author of They Came from Within: A History of Canadian Horror Cinema, charting Cronenberg’s career from his experimental beginnings through to Videodrome, his first major studio picture
- Original Theatrical Trailer
- Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Nat Marsh (Amaray only)
-Limited Edition SteelBook packaging (SteelBook only)
- Collector’s Booklet featuring new writing on the film by Paul Corupe, creator of the Canuxploitation website, reprinted excerpts of Cronenberg on Cronenberg and more, illustrated with original archive stills and posters

There's some kind of shipping delay - got an email from Zavvi that they're looking into it with their supplier. Don't know what that's about.

I don't doubt the Arrow disc is great as always, but I wouldn't use this to argue Blu over DVD with any nonbelievers. I've seen this site compare DVD to blu and the screen shots show a massive improvement, not this time.
