5 stars for this film , but I already had this teamed up with the remake ,which I bought from Amazon when the price was £7-87 on the 8th Oct 2012 , after reading the reviews I noted one reviewer says 200 minutes ,and Amazon lists 200 mins ,I paid
£9-75 in the Easter sale ,only to open the steel tin ,and find that you have the identical Blu-ray disc in the stand alone plastic box edition ,in a nutshell I have paid £9-75 for a steel box, and it doesn't say 100th Anniversary Edition anywhere on the box ,and I did the same with American Werewolf in London ,bought that in the Steel box edition ,and its the same disc that I have in the copy I bought from H.M.V.
a few years back ,still this is a cracking film ,and now I own this Thing in five editions
'Steelbook' standard plastic edition ' John Carpenter box set DVD)two disc edition DVD ,and U.S Edition DVD ,There's mention of this 200 mins Edition ,(I WONDER??)
This release for 2013 ,is packaging only ,you would think ,they would give you a collectors booklet or cards ,but no you will do what I did ,and think ,WOW! longer edition?? or something new ,like another reviewer says ,even the artwork isn't from the film ,at least you get the same picture on the reverse of the tin .
