From Shout Select: "If there is one thing that the announcement of Matinee brought us.... it was requests for The 'Burbs. So.... we decided it was a good idea!

The 'Burbs (Collector's Edition) is out March 20, 2018 and stacked with bonus features (TBD)! Pre-order now at and stay tuned for more info!"

The ’Burbs synopsis: "Tom Hanks stars in The 'Burbs, a comedy about a suburbanite whose plans for a peaceful vacation at home are disturbed by a creepy new family on the block. Much to the disappointment of his wife (Carrie Fisher), Ray Peterson (Hanks) and his three neighbors set out to investigate the next-door residence after they begin to observe strange happenings. Set in an average neighborhood that is anything but ordinary, The 'Burbs blends slapstick comedy and spine-thrilling mystery and is superbly directed by cult filmmaker Joe Dante (Piranha, Gremlins, Matinee, The Howling)."
