    I have come here to chew bubblegum and to buy the Blu-ray … and I’m all out of bubblegum.

    Dang, MZA beat me to it.

    Yeah, about time this movie got the Special Edition treatment.

    FINALLY….”THEY LIVE” HAS COME BACK TO THE LIMELIGHT. In my opinion, “They Live” is one of John Carpenter’s strongest films. This is when his films had that “Carpenter” feel to them. I wonder how Matt Reeves will handle the remake. He did very well with “Let Me In” (remake of the incredible Swedish film “Let The Right One In”) and “Cloverfield”. But, back to this huge release of “They Live” coming to blu-ray. Hopefully DTS-HD master audio with be on the disc and some film grain will be left intact. This is one of those releases you hope for and have on your wish list. Thank you Shout/Scream Factory. Now, we need John Carpenter’s original version of “The Fog” to come to blu-ray. That film is STILL creepy. Carpenter’s 1995 version of “Village of the Damned” would be cool on blu-ray too.
