Horror Headlines: Wednesday March 25th, 2009
Ain't the internet grand? All it took was a single day, less than 24 hours after Icons of Fright's piece on the botched subtitles on the "Let The Right One in" DVD for Magnolia to issue an apology and attempt to rectify the situation. They will have new discs printed up right away with the "theatrical" subtitles. There will be no exchange available, but the new subtitles will be listed on the special features of the new disc so you can make sure you're getting the "right one". We will let you know when they're on store shelves. For now, if you haven't seen the film, wait!
