Is this some kind of conspiracy, or what?

Sweet! Lets hope LLL can continue to expand OOP WB/Atlantic titles that are expensive on the secondary market---such as Twister, Batman Forever, and Last of the Dogmen!

Wonderful! Finally I can get rid of my previous copy, as it's scratched as hell and virtually unplayable after I lent it to a friend of mine... who probably gave it to his cat! smile

P.S: waiting for Thor chiming in and saying he's perfectly happy with the original release wink

Since theres no mention of it, I take it Mr Elfman was unavailable for signings? (Hes a very busy guy!)

LOL. That he is, but he was kind enough to participate in its release... we are forever grateful for that.

Now, its off to packing up those Dunwich orders!

If I am not mistaken, I believe we just popped the proverbial "Limited Edition Cherry" for Mr Elfman.

Cool Beans! smile

Mike, when you say "archival edition", do you mean this is going to include sound effects, etc., like Lukas' SATAN BUG?

Elfman's score and the "Martian Girl" were the only parts of this overblown "comedy" I enjoyed.

Glad to see an expanded release.

THIS IS SO AWESOME!! One of my favorite scores of all time!!!


This doesn't appear to be complete, however. There's no * next to The Landing or State Address, for example.

The newspaper cue from the beginning also doesn't appear to be included.

Really cool that it contains the trailer music and some alternates, as those wouldn't have been on the DVD Iso score

No.

(I'm guessing it means that its an expanded edition of a score that already had an album - at least, thats the way Mask Of The Phantasm worked)

I do not understand why people here associate 'archival' with some kind of defects.

I do not understand why people here associate 'archival' with some kind of defects.

For some odd reason the word archival
has been permanently attached to THE SATAN BUG in the film score collective psyche.

ACK ACK ACK ACK ACK!!!

"I do not understand why people here associate 'archival' with some kind of defects."

The first time I saw the word archival used on a soundtrack was SATAN BUG. This is the second time I've noticed it. In the first instance it didn't seem like a 'defect' to me, nor in this case. Just wanted to know. I'm really excited about this release, especially since I never got the original when it came out.

So, what's the story? Is it expanded plus?

That's a gigantic bummer that the complete Landing cue isn't on here, according to the track list.
