Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

He's a man of peace in a savage land... suburbia.

The films of director Joe Dante have taken us to some strange places - a mysterious Chinatown antique store in Gremlins; a secluded resort populated by werewolves in The Howling; even deep inside the human body in Innerspace. But now he takes us to the strangest place of all - surburbia!

Family man Ray Peterson (Tom Hanks) is looking forward to a week of putting his feet up at home in the quiet, leafy cul-de-sac of Mayfield Place. But his plans are scuppered by the arrival of new next-door neighbours, The Klopeks, whose behaviour and habits are more than just a little kooky. But things go from kooky to downright sinister when local old boy Walter disappears, leading Ray and his buddies to suspect their new neighbours of killing and eating him! Sure, the Klopeks are a strange bunch what with their digging up the backyard in the middle of the night - but they're not devil-worshipping cannibal killers...are they?

If you're looking for a knowing slice of tongue-in-cheek terror then look no further than The 'Burbs. A standout horror comedy from a director who has given us more than his fair share of fun frighteners, The 'Burbs assembles a superb cast including Tom Hanks, Bruce Dern, Carrie Fisher and Corey Feldman in a tall tale of small-town terror. You'll never look at those eccentric neighbours in the same way again!

The Burbs

I love this movie so it will always be amazing.

Transfer not what I expected

Here's the thing. The 'Burbs is one of my favourite films. I've seen it an alarming number of times iver the years and it never gets boring. The prospect of getting an all singing restored version was irresistible, and so when I saw this Arrow release I jumped at it. I can see the work that's gone into the restoration, but, yes a but, I am somewhat disappointed with the level of noise and grain. HD is clearly an upgrade, but some scenes are incredibly grainy to the point of distraction. I compared it to my older release, a DVD named The 'Burbs Uncut and to be honest it's less distracting. I don't ever remember seeing it so grainy to be honest but I'll nonetheless live with it, until another release comes along. I have a lot of Arrow releases and this by far is the one I'm most disappointed with.

the burbs

There really isnt a lot to put down around this title... Good picture, great story, great cast...great laughs... But - the stereo only soundtrack is the only let down...there was a lot of effort put into bringing the burbs to blu ray - justy wish someone had told the sound mixer "dude". Still sssooo worth buying but there will always be that little niggle that takes away a star

Underrated classic

Overlooked movie with a great cast and story. They don't make films like this anymore. The transfer is wonderful as you would expect from Arrow. Not super clean but it shouldn't be in any case.

burbs blu ray

this is an excellent blu ray from arrow as usual sound and picture great and loads of cool extras too highly recommended
