About time it was released here on BD,especially when the inferior The Resident is available.

No sign of a BD release yet?

It's available in the states.

Frustrating this,still no sign of a BD release.
It's now the only modern Hammer film without an HD release.

Pity,as it only comes second to The Woman In Black.

Was there not a US Blu-ray, Reaps? Pretty sure Image released a Region-locked disc last year.

I have the UK DVD which is fine - I liked the film but wasn't in love with it. It's definitely the second best of the resurgent Hammer's films after THE WOMAN IN BLACK. I know it's cussed but I actually liked THE RESIDENT and wasn't over keen on LET ME IN, a film that I thought redundant in the wake of the superior Swedish version.

Yeah there is a US BD Paul.

The Resident IMO is the weakest of Hammer's modern output.
But then again,I prefer Fincher's Girl With The Dragon Tatoo over the Swedish original!

I prefer the Fincher GIRL too, it improved on the Swedish film greatly. I didn't think LET ME IN brought anything new to the table at all, sadly.

STILL not watched the original!

Wake Wood,I though was an enjoyable melange of numerous Brit horrors gone by.

Original is great!

That was one of the things that I struggled to overcome in WAKEWOOD there was too much going on that reminded me of other, better films.

Agreed. I wasn't keen on it at all. I found the relationship bewteen the central couple very unconvincing. Seem to recall some clunking great plot contrivances too. The 'birth' scene was pretty cool though . . .

I bought the US Image Entertainment BD ages ago and only got round to watching it last week. It looks great in HD and in the correct (2.35:1) aspect ratio despite its flaws (or maybe because of them) it seemed better on second viewing and it's probably a film I'll watch every now and again.
