Wages of Fear Criterion Reissue: October 18th

According to someone at CriterionForum.org, the re-released Wages of Fear disc will be coming out on October 18th at a SRP of $29.99. Unfortunately, they don't provide any source...but the October Criterions should be announced this week, so I suppose we'll see for sure then.

I've always felt guilty about leaving this one on my wish list while buying other things ... guess it was an intuitive thing - glad I waited!

Look at the thread for the October Criterion releases - there are some new extras in the works for Wages of Fear.

Same here. I've enjoyed the other Clouzot films that Criterion has brought out, so I'm looking forward to this too.
