The original movie from Anchor Bay was released in 1979 but MGM re-released it in 1998 adding in deleted scenes and using a Dolby stereo soundtrack. Most of the MGM releases said MGM instead of Anchor Bay, but aren't available anymore except on the used market. I ordered this copy (listed as Anchor Bay version) and was thrilled to see it was actually the 1998 re-release with the additional scenes and the Dolby soundtrack. It also has all kinds of extras - 30 min documentary on the making with interviews, audio commentary, Behind the scenes, TV commercial, Trailer, and some other things. While the movie shows its age (the special effects still work but aren't at today's standards), I remember watching it when I was a kid and it scared the begezzes out of me then. It's a classic cult movie with a loyal following and I was glad to find it, especially the 1998 version with the deleted scenes!
