The 'Burbs Blu-ray Detailed

Posted July 30, 2014 05:14 PM by Webmaster

Arrow VideoBritish distributors Arrow Video have detailed their upcoming Blu-ray release of Joe Dante's The 'Burbs (1989), starring Tom Hanks, Bruce Dern, Carrie Fisher, Corey Feldman, Gale Gordon, Rick Ducommun, and Henry Gibson. The release will be available for purchase on September 15th.

Synopsis: The films of director Joe Dante have taken us to some strange places – a mysterious Chinatown antique store in Gremlins; a secluded resort populated by werewolves in The Howling; even deep inside the human body in Innerspace. But now he takes us to the strangest place of all – surburbia!

Family man Ray Peterson (Tom Hanks) is looking forward to a week of putting his feet up at home in the quiet, leafy cul-de-sac of Mayfield Place. But his plans are scuppered by the arrival of new next-door neighbours, The Klopeks, whose behaviour and habits are more than just a little kooky. But things go from kooky to downright sinister when local old boy Walter disappears, leading Ray and his buddies to suspect their new neighbours of killing and eating him! Sure, the Klopeks are a strange bunch what with their digging up the backyard in the middle of the night – but they're not devil-worshipping cannibal killers… are they?

If you're looking for a knowing slice of tongue-in-cheek terror then look no further than The 'Burbs. A standout horror comedy from a director who has given us more than his fair share of fun frighteners, The 'Burbs assembles a superb cast including Tom Hanks, Bruce Dern, Carrie Fisher and Corey Feldman in a tall tale of small-town terror. You'll never look at those eccentric neighbours in the same way again!

Special Features:
  • High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) presentation of the Theatrical cut, newly-restored from the original film elements
  • Original uncompressed 2.0 Stereo PCM Audio
  • Isolated Music and Effects Soundtrack
  • Optional English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
  • New audio commentary with writer Dana Olsen, moderated by author Calum Waddell
  • There Goes the Neighbourhood: The Making of The 'Burbs - A new feature-length documentary including interviews with Dante, actors Corey Feldman, Courtney Gains and Wendy Schaal, director of photography Robert M. Stevens and production designer James H. Spencer
  • The original Workprint cut of the film transferred from Director Joe Dante's personal copy, on home video for the very first time - includes deleted and alternate scenes!
  • A Tale of Two 'Burbs – Video featurette comparing the differences between the Workprint and Theatrical cuts of the film, with optional audio commentary from Dante
  • Alternate ending, presented in HD for the very first time
  • Original Theatrical Trailer in HD
  • Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Graham Humphreys
  • Collector's booklet featuring new writing on the film by Kenneth J. Souza, author of Scared Silly: The Films of Joe Dante, and an article looking at the collaborations of Joe Dante and composer Jerry Goldsmith, illustrated with original archive stills and posters.

This is amazing and really unexpected for me. I always assumed this would get a bare bones release from Universal and when this edition was announced, I expected some new features, but nothing like this! I always go back to this as my favorite movie and have obsessed over its production for years and even got to speak to Dante about it once. This work print and documentary are tuly exciting! The clips included in the trailer and the images released in publicity stills will finally make sense.

I remember when this was first released on DVD, I took my lunch break in high school to run to the mall and get a copy so I could drive straight home to watch it once school got out. Now I'm going to need to pick up a region free player.

The Goldsmith score is what originally got me interested in film music. When I tracked down a copy of the ultra-rare CD in the pre-eBay and Napster days, it was the first time I ever listened to an album and just listened to the music. The isolated music and effects track is also a great addition.

Can't wait to import this! Thanks Arrow!
Yep, I use my self-built computer which uses AnyDVD HD to strip Region Locked Blus to play with ArcSoft Total Media Theatre 6. Well worth it since my first but certainly not last Blu I bought of theirs was Time Bandits.

I really wish I could buy this but if it's not region free then I guess I'll have to hope one day for the North American release.

Even if the movie does get released in the US, I wouldn't be expecting all of those extras (if any of them) to be included. I can see Shout licensing the movie at some point and creating their own supplements.

My dear American friends, why be locked to one specific region when a multi-region Blu-Ray player will enable you to import discs world-wide. Just think of the Hammer movies, distributors like Arrow and Eureka that you're missing out on. Seriously, it's worth the investment.

I really hope we get this kind of release in the U.S. . Love this movie. I may well check into a multi-region player at some point.

This is definitely day 1 purchase for me, now I just need to decide if I want the steelbook or the standard case release with the reversible cover.

Given all the great stuff coming out of the UK, why on earth would anyone in Region A not just pay the hundred bucks to just get a region switchable player, and save themselves from the constant disappointment?
