Ha, turns out they had already responded to me at the time that I typed this! (I just didn't see it because it had gone to my junk folder.) Not only is the item on its way, but they made sure I was getting a copy with corrected discs in it. (I guess the initial pressing had some audio issues.)

One of the rear channels was inadvertently muted.

But, I heard there were audio issues with the first pressing. And, for the first time I noticed dialogue missing from the Alexandra Paul character, just before Christine is captured and crushed. When she’s guiding the John Stockwell character in his Caterpillar vehicle. Is there a replacement program, and has anyone else noticed this problem?
The replacement programme was launched within weeks of the original release a year ago - if you think you have a faulty copy (if I remember rightly, the one of the rear channels in the 5.1 mix was silent), contact info@powerhousefilms.co.uk to see if they can still replace it.

As a result of that, I now routinely circulate graphical maps of all multichannel soundtracks to the production team prior to sign-off - obviously, those don't do more than confirm that something is happening on every channel, but it does at least offer instant visual assurance to team members without surround setups that there's something there. (They can also be quite revealing in other ways - The First Men in the Moon has 3.1 and 5.1 options, but the subwoofer channel is noticeably louder in the 5.1 version.)

Funny Siskel & Ebert review-- they both liked it!

It is great to see them getting enthused by a genre film and picking up on its themes of car obsession in a nice way! I liked this comment by Ebert in the introduction "There have been a lot of movies over the years where a teenage boy parks in a car with a girl he loves but this has gotta be the first movie in history where the guy parks with a girl in the car he loves!". Obviously Christine was an unacknowledged influence on the Transformers series!
