Although, technically the movie Stand By Me was released in 1986, it wasn’t until March 1987 that it was released here in the UK. So despite being a year too late to celebrate its actual 25th Anniversary, I still wanted to celebrate it by doing a blog post of twenty-five years since its release here.
I was only 9 years old when this movie was released but still remember the first time I saw it. It was and still is one of my all time favorite movies to watch, it is one of those movies that has become timeless over the years, and is one of those movies that I grew up with, and still enjoy watching it even today. I have been a Stephen King fan for a number of years and have read the short-story ‘The Body’, that this movie was based upon.
If you haven’t seen this movie (where have you been the last 25 Years?) – The movie has now been released on a Special Edition Blu-Ray that can be purchased for £7.49 from Amazon.co.uk

- Blu-ray Exclusive: A video reunion with Director Rob Reiner and Actors Wil Wheaton & Corey Feldman for the first time in 25 years
