I can't believe they released the DVD without any decent bonus features. :( I want that Blu-ray!

Lololol made my night.

Why is this movie so under appreciated? In the 90s when LucasArts was popular, I always thought The Burbs was begging to be adapted into a graphical point and click adventure game.

Never got it, and now we can't even get a damn Bluray.

If I ever met anyone from the film, something about The Burbs would be the first thing out of my mouth. Nothing else in their bodies of work even matter in comparison. What's Star Wars? What's *insert famous Tom Hanks movie here*?

It's not them. It's us.

I've been waiting for the Blu-ray to watch it again, but I am going to end up giving up. I haven't seen it in years now, and eventually I am just going to watch it anyway! THERE GO THE GODDAMN BROWNIES.

Is that accurate??

This is the 25th anniversary year (2014) of the film. We have to get a Blu-Ray soon right?

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 9, 2014 1:19:49 PM PST
25 years! Wow! Yeah, you'd sure think so.

Okay, so Arrow is releasing a swanky-looking "SteelBook" edition of The Burbs in the UK on Blu-ray. Unfortunately, it is region-locked to B/2 (i.e. Europe, etc, will not work on U.S. Blu-ray players).

I honestly almost cried. Now I'm just kind of mad.

Dang. I hope someone picks it up for US release or region-free.

where in so california I get the blu ray version of the Burbs

In reply to an earlier post on May 16, 2015 9:53:07 AM PDT
You mean the UK version? You'd need a UK region player to even play it if you could get it. I'd try to find it on the internet if you want it, though.

Why did they have to region lock it? So many European BRs are not. It's NOT like Universal appears to be releasing one here in the States, so the LEAST they could have done is let Arrow release it Region Free.

Posted on May 29, 2016 9:28:35 AM PDT
It's probably region locked due to the fact there is a USA release that'a budget disk. It's a Best Buy exclusive Blu and is priced at $9.99.

In reply to an earlier post on May 29, 2016 9:39:37 AM PDT
blu ray dot com sent me a pre-order notification as well, so it must not be BB exclusive. $10 there as well. It's better than nothing! I'd prefer to buy it from Amazon and to have it on Instant Video as well (and itunes actually), but I'm desperate enough to take anything
