    It looks like Hellgate and Hell Comes to Frogtown are already sold out pretty much everywhere... glad I got 'em early!

    If you waited, you'll probably have to pay the inflated prices from resellers now.

    If they do still have any, and somebody here wants them they'd better act quickly. They're gone from the majority of retailers and the prices are inflating on ebay, etc.

    No one should blame for the lack of information... almost a month ago I posted this was limited to 1000 copies each.

    Is that an awful lot of mosquito noise I'm seeing in those caps or is The Stuff really that grainy?

    It could be mosquito noise but the image looks leaps and bounds better than the dvd. Just glorious.

    Thanks. I just don't trust my own eyes, sometimes, and am not at all familiar with how this film should actually look.

    No worries. I'm not familiar with how the film should look but from those screen caps it's easy to see how vastly improved the image and colour is on the blu. :)

    Holy shit!
    The upgrade in PQ is greater than I had expected :)

    Nothing wrong with the filmgrain, it's typical for the mid 80:s filmstock, especially on the low budget ones. Glad DNR is kept far away from it.
