Don't worry good taste will come your way eventually.
Of course I should mention that I'm a extremely die-hard Floyd/Roger Waters fan
I'd buy it only if there are actually extras on it, otherwise no sale.
As one of my favourite Fulci movies, I'll probably upgrade and sell my old copy.
I agree with DecayingFlesh, there's definitely something to be said for the atmospheric, grainy versions of certain movies. I find this adds something of a documentary feel to the proceedings.
i found this comparison of the EC dvd to the anchor bay dvd. the ec dvd does look cleaner and a little sharper
aha, thanks very much!
I really like how COTLD looks. It's grain seems very film-like and adds to the whole atmosphere of the film. I really cannot judge from these small screenshots and I don't know if EC's dvd is anamorphic in the first place.
I like the grain. It reminds me of how these films looked in the big screen. Sometime, cleaning up that grain is like taking something away from these films.
Thanks for those screenshots Paul. The EC disc does seem to look better.
I find it difficult to know what is natural or intention "grain" and what is "dirt". Non of Fulci's other films seem to look the way COTLD looks, does anyone know why it is was intended to have the grain? If indeed, it IS grain, rather than dirt. We had a similar dicussion over Dead and Buried, which looks awful projected.
Like I said earlier I seriously doubt COTLD is supposed to look as bad and grainy as the AB dvd but I could be wrong. On a smaller set it looked ok but on the 47 inch set the grain looks very bad in fact the worse graininess I've ever seen. I would hate to see it on a much larger set and heaven forbid a projector.
Oh no, not the worse!
Grain doesn't really bother me anymore. I'll take it any day over pixelation or compression artifacts. That said, I still wouldn't mind seeing how COTLD would look with a new transfer. Hopefully it'll be worth the upgrade.
I don't mind grain much either on any other movie but this dvd is just excessive. I can't stand compression artifacts either.
Having projected both this and Dead and Buried, Iäd say Dead and Buried is worse. Apparently, it was meant to be like that. COTLD though, who knows? I think we can all agree it ain't going to be worse
Not getting this. I'm sick of upgrading. The DVD available now from Anchor Bay is fine. They can slap on as many "bonus interviews" they want. The picture quality is fine.
:fire: re-buying the same movie
ah, but you would buy any of the new edition from AB of the ARMY OF DARKNESS DVD's , wouldnt you?
Anchor Bay and grain? Try HALLOWEEN 4. Even the daylight scenes crawl with it,
My favorite Fulci film ( though it's not as good as Zombie or The Beyond ) getting the SE treatment . I hope they arn't calling it a 25th Anniversary Edition for nothing, Shreik Show haven't lied to us before have they ?
There should be a Catriona MacColl commentary for it along with a ton of crew interviews just like the Zombie 2 disc.

Grease Guy : Four pounds of grease...that comes to 63 cents.
Homer : Woo Hoo.
Bart : Dad, all that bacon cost 27 dollars.
Homer : Yeah, but your mom payed for that.
Bart : But doesn't she get her money from you.
Homer : And I get my money from grease, what's the problem.
anybody heard anything new about this release? I'm all up for rebuying this classic!!
I hope more information on this release is put out there soon... I'll definitely double-dip for this classic. I'll probably keep my AB disc, though, as it's one of the first DVDs I ever bought online.
No info on this one but I think I'll check out the new Dutch Film Works version (coming soon).Think I'll give it a rent.
