I came back to this since I wanted to know about this particular film and why people want it on Blu-ray so badly. Can you provide any information on this title?

Ah, another one of the lacking posts from the early days of my blog... I know I should write a proper review for this one, as it's one of my personal favorites, and I promise I will eventually.

Why do I love it? In a nutshell, because it's so beautifully photographed, and the atmosphere evokes a dreamlike, supernatural aura that just flows. It's haunting, and triggers a scary but not quite nightmarish sensation, somewhat like an innocent fear of the unknown; and it stays with you, like those urban myths you hear as a child and can't stop thinking about.

I guess you could say that. I see it like a sheltered place of childhood innocence, and you're right, that all gets shattered after the ill fated field trip.
