Tom Hanks‘s 1989 cult classic The ‘Burbs is getting an ultimate edition from the fine folks at Scream Factory. This one will release on March 20th. Scream Factory has been crushing it for years now, but this has always been high on the list of titles fans have wanted them to get to.
Tom Hanks stars in The ‘Burbs, a comedy about a suburbanite whose plans for a peaceful vacation at home are disturbed by a creepy new family on the block. Much to the disappointment of his wife (Carrie Fisher), Ray Peterson (Hanks) and his three neighbors set out to investigate the next-door residence after they begin to observe strange happenings. Set in an average neighborhood that is anything but ordinary, The ‘Burbs blends slapstick comedy and spine-thrilling mystery and is superbly directed by cult filmmaker Joe Dante (Piranha, Gremlins, Matinee, The Howling).
I have very fond memories of watching this constantly when I was little. I was also just really confused as to how Princess Leia could leave Han Solo and space to live in the suburbs with the guy from Big. Hey, I was little. This, Star Wars, and Ghostbusters — these were the films that were on constant repeat in my adolescence. I can’t wait to see what kind of features they throw on this release. They always blow out their discs with all kinds of awesome archival stuff and cast reunions and all sorts of things.
Like all of their releases as well, you can preorder now directly from them and gets a poster of their new artwork that they commissioned for this release. On top of that, they also send it to you two weeks before the street date.
The ‘Burbs Collectors Edition from Scream Factory hits stores on March 20th, 2018. You can preorder yourself a copy right here.
