    Arrow Releasing The Burbs - Shout! Factory Too!

    Man, lots of Arrow announcements this morning but they're all good!

    The ’Burbs [Blu-ray]

    HE’S A MAN OF PEACE IN A SAVAGE LAND… SUBURBIA.

    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!

    The single greatest movie ever made (yeah I've seen Stripes. This is better). I already own a DVD of it so no interest from me as far as a purchase goes but how cool to see it getting this kind of lovin'.

    I revisited it a year back, and it holds up really well. Great film.

    Guess I'm odd man out here, I've always thought this was stupid and painfully unfunny...maybe it's one of those you had to be a certain age to like. Some good people in smaller roles though.
    I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.

    This is getting a US release next month, a Best Buy exclusive.

    No word on specs or extras but the price is right.
