Best news in the history of home video.
Damn it I knew it! And I suckered myself into the DiabolikDVD sale anyways because there was a lenticular art of Olga Karlatos getting her eye gouged out for just less than half price.
Good news and sooner than I anticipated. I expected it to be released a year after the original release but I just realized it was release on 11/27/2018 so they're behind my schedule.
And Jess Franco's Cecilia is getting an upgrade to Blu-ray too:
"As if news of our first 4K UHD wasn't enough, we also have our next Jess Franco Blu-ray upgrade coming soon!"
Blue Underground is just breaking my heart, AND shaking my confidence daily.
I may have made that joke before.
Crazy to see Zombi 2 getting a 4k release. I'm truthfully not a massive Fulci fan but I may have to snap this 4k disc up.
It's great they are finally releasing on the format.
But it's also too bad they didn't include UHD's with the last releases.
If they release a new 4K "The Prowler", and then we have to wait another 2 years for the UHD...
Wonder how long it will take until we get a UHD of House by the Cemetery
I just watched the new House by the Cemetery disc, and it's a bit disappointing.
It's great that the scanner noise is gone, and it's FAR superior when it comes to the fine details.
But, they cranked the brightness/contrast to 11.
Lot's of crushed details in the bright outdoor skies.
And every scene, with a window in the background, it basically looks like a nuclear explosion is blasting light through them.
Stuff visible outside the windows, in the older transfers, is now gone.
Also, the movie is supposed to be dark.
But now it's so bright, that it looks like all the lights are on in the cellar.
And the blacks suffers as well in the darker scenes, as they now are grey.
So it's one step forward, when it comes to natural filmgrain and much sharper details, but one step backwards, by making it too damn bright.
I hope when (if) they re-release the movie in UHD, that they fix the contrast boosting, when giving it the HDR treatment.
Overall, they did a better job with Zombie and New York Ripper.
But still, I rather watch this new transfer, than the old scanner noise infested crap.
And I guess most people, who don't know about the boosted brightness/contrast, won't be bothered by it.
Awesome news but I'm already scared of the price lol.
Yeah, considering the price of those 3 disc blu-rays, I fear these will go for more than $60
They seem to be following Synapse's model for Suspiria (UHD w/ extras disc and basic slipcover, no Blu-Ray copy, no CD), so I'd venture a guess that the MSRP will be $59.99, but they should be available in the $35.00 - $40.00 range.
Prices aren't bad at all, at least not at Diabolik
Amazon just listed a pre-order at a much higher price than Diabolik.
Amazon always lists it at the base SRP first, and then it usually drops down before the release date. It'll be cheaper there and other retailers later on.
And don't forget, you always get the lowest price Amazon offers at any time up until shipping if you pre-order. Oftentimes, the pre-release price drops are brief and unpredictable (as far as when they occur). Pre-order to make sure you get in on the best deal they offer before the ship date. You can always cancel 4 or 5 days before the release date if the price isn't what you hoped it would be. And they never charge you until they ship.
So is Dead & Buried DOA? If the lab lost the negative, can't they use an IP or film print? I would sue the pants off of the lab for allowing this to happen if I were BU.
I'll eat a log of sh*t before I buy the same film again, their 3-disc releases will suit me just fine.
Where did you read that the lab lost the negative?
Maybe someone else can do better but there's second hand knowledge from Gary Sherman: https://forum.blu-ray.com/showpost.php?p=17046674&postcount=70
I was under the impression that they found the negative but that's all I found so that's disappointing I was really looking forward to a new transfer; I didn't buy the Blu-ray because it reportedly wasn't much better than the DVD using the same master.
Weird. I had talked to a key crew member last year and was under the impression the transfer had already been done and was being timed. Maybe I’m mistaken.
