    Sorry! At least you have your discs in hand. I'm dying to watch the restored version of Carnival of Souls.

    BNSPARKLER and BNTROPICAL coupons seem to have expired, sadly.

    It looks BEAUTIFUL. 4K transfer from the original negative, and it looks absolutely great.

    I snagged it at my local B&N store yesterday. I had a 20% coupon from the mail, so it was just $15.54 after tax.

    I'm officially jealous! VERY jealous! This is the rare release of an awesome flick that's had nothing but subpar, shitty releases over the years.

    One quick question for you. Does the new version sound as good as advertised? The sound quality on the older versions is damn near abominable. Reviews have been complimentary--but, as always, I'd rather get confirmation from my posse here.

    I can't wait to actually experience this film for real.

    It sounded fine to me on the Blu-ray... the audio was also sourced from the original film negatives according to the included booklet.
