John Carpenter’s Lovecraftian masterpiece finally receives its home-video due with an exceptional A/V transfer and a slew of extras.
Ahh, baseball! The invigorating thrill of freshly cut grass, the sweet pop of leather and oak on a summer day!
Its obsessive insistence on emphasizing the dearth of humans’ capacity for simple trust culminates with one of Carpener’s most satisfying finales.
This new edition is actually not much more than a perfect imitation of the previous Collector’s Edition, so beware.
