What's the big deal with grain? Some movies are just grainy. Depends on the film stock they used. It's not exactly a fault of the transfer.
But wow, Arrow is really kicking ass. They're just spewing out release after release. How did they obtain the rights to all this stuff? Did they just get Vipco's entire catalogue or something?
It seems that way. Most of Vipco's titles must must be coming to their end in terms of rights.
There is a new comparison of the two BluRays on caps-a-holic. Both look quite disappointing....
Hmmm. Those are looking pretty bad. Not cool.
just watched the Arrow version on DVD, i really couldn't think of anything bad to say about the transfer, which looks very good, very clear and quite detailed, didn't notice much grain (after all, it is low budget and was originally filmed on 16mm)
what with the 2nd disc full of interviews, a great 2-sided poster, a little booklet, reversible cover and 6 postcards with artwork, this is a superb package
The new "City of the Living Dead" BluRay from the Austrian label XT will be out in late December. It will be a Mediabook with two different artworks (see below). The extras are poor but it will have the original untampered HD-transfer as a bonus on the disc. I am really looking forward to a comparison between the untampered transfer and the UK/US Blus.
So, the untampered HD-transfer is a bonus on the disc???
Does that mean the main version will be tampered?
The uncut transfers by Blue Underground and Arrow as well as the uncut XT transfer were processed with things like digital noise reduction (DNR), etc. A lot of fans did not like that. That's why XT has decided to add the original uncut HD transfer without any digital changes as a bonus on the BluRay. Thus the fans can decide for themselves which transfer they like the most.
Found a comparison of the "unmolested" transfer:
Ugh, it's enough to make you want to puke your own innards out.
I was so curious about the untouched transfer that I considered buying that and now, for once, I actually don't regret not buying something! Thanks for posting that.
