This is the version to get. I just bought it yesterday (as I stated in my Exorcist thread). The "all-new digitally remastered picture" is fantastic. And there are some great special features as well.

The Thing - a thoughtful build up and keeps you guessing all the way through. I agree. Great movie. I actually just bought the Collector's Edititon DVD yesterday. Watched it last night, then watched it again this morning with commentary. It's one of my favorite movies. The exorcist i can watch over...

The creepiest bit of The Exorcist is the bit that they cut out, when Linda Blair's scuttling down the stairs on all fours, bent over backwards. I thought that was pretty stupid, myself. The only bit that still makes me wince is the "Jesus loves you" crucifix scene. For me it's the first time her he...

The last movie that scared me, even just a little, was Dead Silence. It had it moments. And I enjoyed watching it.

Anyone remember The Howling? What a great werewolf movie. I just bought the DVD today.

I love martial arts movies. I like the old skool kung fu films the most though. The Shaw Bros. films are my favorite. I have a censored load of their DVDs. I also have a huge library of kung fu movies from the 70's, 80's and 90's. There's too many to list, so I'll just list a few of my favorites (in...

I think it only chills me now because it brings back memories of being scared back then That is exactly why I couldn't watch it growing up. Those old feelings would come back. Kinda like war flashbacks, or something. lol I agree with Antiriad2097 in that The Exorcist is pretty dated. It's still str...

The Exorcist (1973) ...scariest movie ever made?

Not to me, it ain't. But millions of other people will disagree. I will admit, it did scare the crap out of me when I first saw it as a kid. And for the longest time (about 10 years lol) I couldn't bring myself to watch it, until it came on TV one night. I forced myself to sit there thru the entire ...

The Thing is one of my favorite horror films. Such originality is hard to come by nowadyas when it comes to movie monsters. I'd love to see a sequel more than a prequel. Either way, it would have to be done by John Carpenter and no one else.

Well, I haven't really kept up with all of the Retro Gamer issues in the past. So I don't know if this has been done before.

I'd love to see an article on the old Tecno Soft (or Technosoft :P) and all of the wonderful games (mainly their shmups) they've made in the past.

I chose Driver. I had so much fun with that game when it first came out. Hell, I still have fun whenever I pop it in, which isn't too often. 8)
