Good price, though rubbish cover art and sacrilege to issue this with anything other than Struzan's original masterpiece as the cover

I 100% agree. The cover is putting me off buying.

Agreed, even the recent slip version made a mess of it. The original Amaray is one to go for IMO

best horror film ever, some of the greatest special effects to date, nothing modern has come close except JP and Avatar in the SFX department, but 99% of this was done with practical effects, mind blowingly brilliant, with a little help from the master himself, Stan Winston.

I agree there has never been a horror film to date to touch this masterpiece

Great film!!

Yeah!

well **** you too!

Great film at great price. Might be time to upgrade my John Carpenter collection from Laserdisc. Is They Live coming out on Blu-Ray?

"You gotta be f*****g kidding"

Awesome film....

Don't like the steelbook cover art. The blu ray is a superb transfer. Would like to see a 3D version of the film if it was done well.

That steelbook...my eyes!

TORCH IT!

One of my all time fave movies BUT that cover makes me wanna bury it in the snow.

Best horror ever definitely!

javea

Not sure how you can compare the "poor" Avatar with it's CGI with a classic old school special affects movie......film makers have it FAR to easy these days....

Agree 100%.
Stan Winston did the Dog monster in the kennels, everything else was done by Rob Bottin, a genius IMO
According to IMDB, not done anything since 2002, shame.
