    Sounds good. I like spooky apartment renter/owner stories. Is that a sub-genre?

    So this is streaming on Prime in HD. Not an amazing presentation, definitely sourced from an older master, but better than the DVD. No idea how the Prime stream compares to the Australian Blu-ray. Anyway, having watched it again over the weekend for the first time in at least a decade, the movie really does hold up well. It's spooky and weird but also very funny. Polanski is great in front of and behind the camera and the supporting cast, Adjani in particular, are also really solid. I'd love to see Criterion get their hands on this like they have with some of Polanski's other pictures.

    I'm hoping Criterion continues to release Polanski's films and The Tenant gets the special treatment.

    Is this still with Paramount? I remember a few years ago Alec Baldwin mentioning in an interview that Jack Nicholson has the rights, which I found a little odd.

    I really hope Shout! is allowed to do a new transfer on this one.

    If I'm not mistaken, the only Paramount title they've done a new transfer of is My Bloody Valentine. So I'm not counting on it.

    Someone mentioned somewhere in Cyberspace that the French dub is really good. Do any of you know if it's going to be included on this bluray?
