Jack Clayton's Something Wicked This Way Comes, an adaptation of a work by Ray Bradbury, gets a second DVD release with this edition from Disney/Buena Vista. The movie is presented in both a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio and a less-than-thrilling standard full-frame transfer. English, French, and Spanish soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1. There are no supplemental materials of any consequence, but this disc offers the best sound and picture quality yet for this cult favorite.
