John Carpenter’s Lovecraftian masterpiece finally receives its home-video due with an exceptional A/V transfer and a slew of extras.
Shout! does right by this ambiguous war allegory, with an appropriately lush and gorgeous transfer that will hopefully win the film new fans.
Carpenter wisely turns his focus on the fissures of his own microcosmic civilization under duress than that of their skin and veins.
This new edition is actually not much more than a perfect imitation of the previous Collector’s Edition, so beware.
