    Just spotted this on DVD Soon.

    This is a highly enjoyable '80s movie by Larry Cohen that was a homage to the monster movies of the 1950s. Has a great lead performance from Michael Moriarty (whatever happened to him?) and some good old-fashioned stop-motion animation.

    Amazed to see that for a "B" movie this DVD has a DTS 6.1 soundtrack!

    Last I saw of him he was in The 4400.

    "Q" is a great little film and the R1 disc is pretty good. Can't say what the DTS track is like as I didn't have a DTS equipped system when I first bought it and haven't played it since on my new set up.

    Anchor Bay have released the film in R2 with the same spec. If you wait a little while it'll crop up everywhere for around £6.99.

    Actually, forget the Anchor Bay R2!

    This from the review at DVD Times...

    Blue Underground is the one to go for.

    I have the R1 disc and the sound is nothing to write home about. The film hasn't aged well either! :thumbsdow
