A true cult classic, and frequently named as one of the funniest films ever made, This Is Spinal Tap is a fly-on-the-wall look at the world's loudest heavy metal band, filmed by documentarian Marty DiBergi (real life director Rob Reiner, Stand By Me, When Harry Met Sally).
Opening with the band's sold out New York gig (venue capacity -100) and ending with their riveting performance at a Santa Monica amusement park puppet gallery, This is Spinal Tap combines interviews, backstage footage and live performances - including classic Tap tunes like 'Big Bottom' and 'Hell Hole' - in a film that is nothing short of phenomenal. Along the way you'll get acquainted with core members David St. Hubbins (Michael McKean), Nigel Tufnel (Christopher Guest, Best in Show), Derek Smalls (Harry Shearer) and every drummer who ever lived - and died - for this renowned rock band. Reiner's first film, This is Spinal Tap will live in history for future generations as the best rock 'n roll spoof ever made.

Quite simply, one of the funniest films ever made. Groundbreaking for the time. A format that other filmmakers would come to copy for many years afterward. So happy to finally have this on steelbook!
The complete manual on correct rockstar maneurism, from the lavish stagesettings ( miniature stonhenge with dancing little people) to the stuffed spandex pants (tinfoi wrapped as a huge male apendix). presented in Hi-def and an awesome steelbook. What´s not to love about this classic?
Nice art inside and out - nice gloss and finish. A timeless movie and a classic choice. Get while you can
Love the simple design of the steelbook. Awesome movie too!
A really nice Steelbook for any collector. The black glossy finish on the Steelbook is amazing while there are hours of bonus features to get through on the disc. Maybe a little overpriced for a back catalogue movie though.....
This review is in no way related to the actual film. The film is a classic 5 star rated film which ever way you look at it. The 3 star rating is for the actual packaging and product. At the end of the day, people who buy steelbooks are fans of the form, and ideally want something extra special over and above the standard plastic casing. Now whilst this steelbook copies some of the original released covers, and is in a fetching gloss finish, I can't help bu feel they missed a trick with doing something special. If you release a film specifically in a format that is specialising in the case and packaging, then concentrate all your efforts on that. As I said, it's a nice and standard affair for a steelbook; but when released as an anniversary steelbook, you expect a little bit more. The cover of the Zavvi Rocky Horror Show Steelbook release is a fine example of doing something different and special with a steelbook release.
