    HI DVDRic,

    I think, if my memory serves, that at one time, this was on a temporary list (i.e. not any official list) as being a "video nasty".

    Also, because of the potentially contentious nature of the film i.e. teachers killing students and vice versa, then I don't think that film companies in the UK want to risk it - at least for the time being.

    Try checking the BBFC website to see if it has been recently classified in any form. Alternatively, it may be available on import DVD from Japan, the USA or Europe. If it is, then you'll need a multi-region DVD player and (possibly) an NTSC-compatible TV as well. See if somewhere like... http://www.dc-dvd.net ...have it listed at all.

    Hope this is of some help to you.

    Pooch

    Nothing like dragging up a 3 year old thread, eh Shirley? ;)


    Anchor Bay are releasing this in the US later this year. From their website:

    CLASS OF 1984 (1982)

    School is in session and soon the students will be at war in this '80s cult classic featuring an early role for future-superstar Michael J. Fox. An all-new restored 16x9 Widescreen Transfer has been completed along with an audio commentary with director Mark L. Lester, and many other extras TBA. Look for this in Late Summer 2005.

    Just be warned the Anchor bay version is meant to be a 'Directors Preferred' version - so it could end up like Evilspeak and they release a cut version.
    I would wait and read some reviews of it before you buy just to be sure.
    The French dvd is uncut and includes DTS but has french subs and not much in the way of extras.
