I'm saving this and the other films from the new 'Special Effects Collection' for Christmas. This is easily my most anticipated home video release for me in a long time.

A few days ago a very negative review of the THEM! transfer came out, but, as this review elucidates, they made the mistake of comparing against the DVD, which had a transfer that didn't reflect how the source material was supposed to look, like the Blu-Ray does. Apparently the DVD boosted the contrast, for one thing - and the Blu features THEM! in the proper aspect ratio for the first time in forever!

Hey guys, I've been out of the loop for a bit and just discovered today that there were some new blu rays that I had missed. As I was adding them to my amazon cart I saw the Special Effects Collection being recommended. I was going to drop all of them and just get that, but there's some complaints there about the packaging. Is it much ado about nothing, or does the packaging really suck? I can't find any pics of the actual set.

^It's book packaging with the discs in cardboard sleeves. Blu-Rays have a much tougher scratch coating than DVDs, so as long as you're careful with your discs they should be fine. I heard with the Hammer set (same packaging) that the inner box was in the sleeve a bit tight and people had a time getting it out at first, but once they popped it in and out a few times it was okay.

I got the single discs soley because I liked the covers featuring the original poster art.

Hey: that's the original VHS art for THEM! How cool to see it reappear all these years later.
