As you can see bonus features are lacking on these titles with They Live standing out the most considering the readily available UK DVD release features a John Carpenter audio commentary and a Making-of-featurette in amongst the more standard extras. Sadly the UK version also has a cropped transfer that many were hoping would be fixed for this R1 release, so even if this issue is addressed the lack of bonus features no longer makes the choice as easy as it should have been.

Below is a selection of pack shots and menu screens for these titles.
