This Is Spinal Tap rocks the house in high definition

MGM Home Entertainment has just added Rob Reiner’s cult parody This Is Spinal Tap to their Blu-Ray disc line-up.

You’re about to get personal with one of music history’s greatest — and loudest — heavy metal bands…Spinal Tap!

Whether or not you’re a die-hard fan of the group, you’ll love this detailed “rockumentary” of England’s legendary Spinal Tap. Acclaimed commercial director, Marty DiBergi, takes you behind-the-scenes for an intimate look at a band whose time has come…and gone…and come again…and… Through interviews, rare footage and lots of music — including classic Tap tunes like “Big Bottom” and “Hell Hole” — you’ll get acquainted with David St. Hubbins (lead guitar), Nigel Tufnel (lead guitar), Derek Smalls (lead bass) and every drummer who ever lived — and died — for this renowned rock band.

Be a part of the sights, sounds and smells of this celebrated heavy metal phenomenon. It’s an experience you’ll never forget.

This absolute cult favorite arrives on Blu-Ray with a 1080p high definition transfer and a DTS 5.1 HD audio track, making the best of the bombastic metal sound track. No extras have been announced yet but it would be surprising if it wouldn’t carry over the extras found from the numerous DVD versions that have been released over the years.

“This Is Spinal Tap” arrives on January 20 with a $34.99 price tag attached.
