needs a director's cut blu-ray release
Stephen King supposedly shot some extra gory death scenes for this movie. For example, the coach's death was more prolonged. But in the relatively conservative 80's, those deaths had to be trimmed.
Wouldn't it be great to get a special edition blu-ray release which restores the cut gore. I'd love a King commentary reflecting on his experience directing. A cast commentary would be a lot of fun too.
Sure it's cheesy and silly and not particularly good, but it is entertaining and never boring.
