5.0 out of 5 stars Arrow's excellent Blu-ray does not disappoint:, 23 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Squirm [Dual Format Blu-ray + DVD] (Blu-ray)
What you get, for those in a hurry:

- Standard blu-ray case (clear, not blue) with reversible sleeve - new artwork (which, while not exactly ugly, is weird) on one side, the classic US theatrical art on the other...that side also does not feature a BBFC certificate on the spine or the front, thankfully)
- Lavish 34 page booklet, featuring new writing on the film by Lee Gambin, author of the definitive "nature runs amok!" book, Massacred by Mother Nature: Exploring the Natural Horror Film, and a lengthy interview with director Jeff Lieberman conducted by Calum Waddell, interspersed with lots of pictures from the film (stills of these were leaked as screenshots of the disc, disappointingly!). Not as good of a booklet as the Deranged [Blu-ray] one, but very good.
- Blu-ray disc and Standard DVD, with complimentary artwork. I assume the following contents are on both, high definition not withstanding, but the DVD is worthless to me so I didn't check.
- High definition (1080p) presentation of SQUIRM, from the same uncut master as the MGM DVD released in the US in 2007 (a region 1 disc). Video is detailed and attractive hi-def, with strong vivid colours and the audio is two-channel mono, presented as a lossless PCM track (English subtitled included).
- Humourous and warm audio commentary by director Jeff Lieberman (this is the same one on the MGM DVD released in the US).
- Video Q and A with director Lieberman and star Don Scardino from New York's Anthology Film Archives, recorded in 2011 or 2012. Pretty funny and interesting.
- The Esoteric Auteur - Kim Newman on Jeff Lieberman and Squirm - interview with Newman praising the film and Lieberman.
- Trailer.

The film is one that is both spoof and serious, entertaining throughout it's length with down-home melodrama and apocalyptic, "natural terror", sci-fi. Characters are memorable and have relationships that actually go places and the film is attractive to look at and doesn't stop moving.

Will come back to say more soon!
