I adore this movie. Haven't seen it in a while and it feels so wonderfully familiar, I can see it's influences on me as a filmmaker. It also freaks me out that the ending of the film occurs in Stony Brook, which I lived a town over from, which reinforced that the boogeyman could be real...and look like a young Ray Liotta. A true classic tonal roller coaster.
The New Blu-Ray is AWESOME, long overdue. Sure, its a little campy, but Roddy is strong & stoic as the underdog hero, the political message is wonderfully woven like a subliminal message, Keith David is killer, "the fight" and this has more quotable lines than Colbert Report. The commentary on this is old (from 2001) but very informative. A must buy.
