I do not know why I would want a DVD of the film if I am buying the Blu-ray. I am not interested in Untraviolet stream either.

I found a disc on Amazon that says "(Movie Only) Blu-ray". Will it have the extras that the combo pack has on it?

No, the "Movie Only" Blu-Ray does not have the full special edition features.

That's great it's available in both Film formats: DVD & Blue-Ray. I look forward to all the DS's films being release: I just wish that the same features that are given on the Blue-Ray format should also be showcased on the DVD's which I prefer more. But none the less: like I said it's awesome there available in both formats. So, looking forward to seeing the Classic's "House Of Dark Shadows" and "Night of Dark Shadows" and the new movie Dark Shadows: I really like the Art cover cases to the film designs. Breathtaking!!! Can't wait.
