    It ain't supposed to be realistic, it's supposed to be cinematic. We strive for "what the Director intended", so changing it now seems odd. Maybe the extras make it worth it.

    I went looking for this yesterday, but couldn't find it. I guess I'm not missing much based on those screenshots. I am soooooo glad I held onto my LE. If the 25th anniversary is cheap enough, I may pick it up for the extras.

    Holy crap Mortis!!! You can actually see the brick siding in the first shot! That is swwweeet! BTW-Can you see Michaels face? In widescreen video, you can see his face when Loomis is about to shoot him at the end. But in all other versions, it seems they cut it out.

    Imagine what would happen if these monkeys remastered Suspiria today.

    :lol: :lol: :lol:

    My main issue with this is that it seems that whoever did the mastering was more concerned with fleshtones being pink, than they were the movie they were mastering. Pathetic.

    I've got the THX Resmastered Stand-alone version with only Meyers's mask on the front.

    Is this transfer the same as the LE ?

    Latency: Yes.

    And that's what people need to realize. The LE is still available, just like the AOD LE is still available. Anchor Bay just split it up into individual releases.

    So basically we need the new one for the commentary, and then two more to cover the better transfer and TV cut. Real nice.

    The screenshots are a good representation of the new DVD. I would really like to know what Carpenter thinks of this new transfer. Did it look this way when it was originally released? Aside from the fact the the color might be turned up a bit, the transfer is really spectacular.
