It's in the machine... again.

So... yesterday, I was strolling around Morrisons. Picked up the papers, a loaf of bread, some milk and a brand-new copy of Ghostwatch on DVD..!

First off, let me say a big thank-you to everyone who got in touch to let us know our favourite Hallowe'en Hoax was being re-issued on DVD this month. And whilst it's great to see the show getting some much-deserved attention in time for the 19th Anniversary, we've also had a lot of emails asking if this is related to the Behind the Curtains project, and just to be clear, it is not.

We've also been getting a lot of questions regarding whether the new disc has any extra content or special features. While this release does only contain the main feature, one change you might notice from the previous BFI DVD is that this version reinstates the rather fantastic Screen One 'boulder' ident that came before the pre-titles, just as it was on the night of transmission.

More soon, Ghostwatchers!

  1. This is onbe of the most bootlegged titles around. The new release should quash that market! Good news for everyone who has yet to buy a copy on DVD!!!

    1. No mate, it won't 'quash that market' actually. This is a cheap budget release, without the commentary or script included. In this case it will do nothing at all to hurt sales of the original and superior release of this show.
