Cameron's Closet

Trivia: William Lustig, who directed many cult-favorites including the "Maniac Cop" trilogy, has a brief cameo in the film as a character being booked by police.


Trivia: The demon effects were done by Carlo Rambaldi, who is arguably most famous for creating the design of the benevolent titular character from Steven Spielberg's "E.T."


Question: Something I'm confused about... every home-video and streaming version of the movie available is in full-frame. But I've read it was released in theaters in some countries. So was the movie initially released in widescreen? It seems odd that the DVD editions are only in full-frame, especially as at the time they were released, widescreen was pretty much taking over as widescreen TV's were becoming more popular and full-frame was being phased out.
