Columbia/Tri-Star's DVD release of this 1985 cult horror favorite features a clean-looking, crisp-sounding transfer of the film, but remains a let-down thanks to a lack of special features. Beyond simply owning this great horror-comedy in the DVD format, the only real reasons to purchase this version is to see the letterboxed version of the film (in its original 2.35: 1 aspect ratio) on side one and to be able to hear the heavily '80s-influenced soundtrack in Dolby Surround Sound (English track only). Unfortunately, those are all the extras this disc has to offer unless you've been dying to catch the film in French or Portuguese. The lone addition is the original theatrical trailer which gives away most of the film's ending. The picture quality is excellent and Richard Edlund's special effects are captured in the ideal technological display. Side two also features the full-screen version of the film for those averse to letterboxing.
