    Couldn't find an existing thread for this so apologies if anyone beat me to it - LOVE this film and the new art is properly different to the previous release :)

    love this film, for all of the things it is, rather than for all of the things people assumed it would be. i already have the DVD :LOL: lenticular slip edition (as below), which is to me a much better cover than this :thumbs: - it works well as a lenti, and better represents the film. don't understand why they have gone for a line/contour version of the iconic mask shot inside either. plus, spoiler alert for this cover!! and is that a drawn/sketch rendering of a film still? all seems a bit odd. :confused: may get it for the right price.

    I don’t mind the front but it has a more stranger things vibe.

    This won’t sell out and Is not worth £15.99 so I’ll pick it up under £10

    I have the german orange quersteelbook which I quite like (cant believe it´s still available after more than 6 years lol), but maybe I will add this one to collection as well, but defo with a price drop. Movie is good and atmospheric.

    Really? LOL. A re-release of this is not needed. I can see this hitting 7.99 shortly after release.

    I hear really good things about this movie, but I’m still skeptical to watch it because of how much I dislike the director’s other two films.

    It’s very different to his other films and low budget. Set design and locations is epic for how small it was

    It’s slow but decent.

    Wasn't a fan of this, although it's been years since I saw it now. Art is nice, though.

    V. nice artwork and the first time in the UK . . . although of course we've already had the unloved silhouette artwork MONSTERS 2 . . .

    Two in Germany . . . I must admit I certainly prefer that horizontal orange one to Ken & Barbie:-

    :offtopic: thanks for that, @Hereticz :thumbs:, had no idea you could still get it, been wanting that for ages - just bought that orange quersteelbook. one or two still available at time of post, if anyone's interested.

    back on topic, as for this one, i'm still not sold (especially not after seeing the orange one again). i like the back, but can't work out if i like the front or not, and not at all the inside. hmm... :watch: for price drop.

    Kryp knows I'm messing with him. :p

    But yea, steelbook is not amazing or anything like that but it's good. I mean, it could've been far worse, right?
