    The Dead Zone

    So this is finally getting a Blu-ray release... in Australia. From Madman Entertainment, 1/7/15.

    No details on extras yet but here's a link:

    I'm going to guess there won't be much in the way of extras, which is a shame. This should get an SE release.

    Parts of this were shot around where I grew up.

    I always liked this one. Underrated Cronenberg flick with an equally underrated Walken performance.

    I remember seeing this on TV back in the day as a double feature with Tales From the Darkside the movie.

    I love this film. Michael Kamen's score is godly. There's actually already a Blu-ray available in Italy. Word on the street is that it's not too shabby and, thankfully, uncut (which is nice, give the various trims that have been imposed on different versions of this film over the years). I would guess the Australian disc will be based on the same source; time will tell.

    Scream mentioned on Facebook that their release will have a new transfer.

    I would really love a Cronenberg commentary on this. I know it was a hired gun work, but I think it's one of his best.

    Agreed, this is excellent. It's also one of the best King adaptations.

    It's the best King movie after THE SHINING, IMO.

    It's up there, but I find it hard to choose because there's so many that I love: CHRISTINE, CUJO, THE NIGHT FLIER, MISERY etc.
    Why would anybody watch a scum show like Videodrome? Why did you watch it, Max?
