    What's the best release of this film?

    The old version. The best copy is (by far) the GoodTimes version since the cover art is fantastic, drawn out with color.

    I have the Roan Archival twofer with "The Bat". Its letterboxed and I've always felt this transfer to be serviceable. I did buy the Goodtimes twofer with "The Bat" to compare quality, but passed it along to a friend. I don't know a thing about Warner's release as far as quality. The Roan disc was among my first DVDs.

    I don't give a crap about the cover. I want the best transfer. Are there no good transfers then? Dammit....

    The Warner disc looks about as good as I imagine this film can look. Anamophic widescreen on one side (the only way to go, IMHO), open-matte on the other (for those who like that format). I've also seen the Diamond (I think) 2-fer with Last Man On Earth, and the transfer on that one is pretty decent. If you want the best looking version of House On Haunted Hill, the Warner disc is the best choice. But if you're looking for a little more bang for your buck, it sounds like there are a few options on 2-fers that look pretty good.

    You posted this as I was typing the above response. Sounds like the Warner disc is your best option. It really does look quite good.

    Relax burgos. I was just curious about you're statement regarding Warners' "crappier print", which apparently isn't the case (see review).
    Now, I don't know about you guys but i'd choose Anamorphic anytime if possible.

    Thanks Hellbilly. r_burgos2003, I didn't understand why you made the comment. Anamorphic over "Digally remastered"? An industry defined term we all understand, as compared to something that has no meaning at all? Please....

    Oh, I see...the cover just said DIGITALLY REMASTERED

    I have some Diamond disc that were "digitally remastered". Wanna know what they look like?

    Could a drunk Chinese migrant worker, working with a tenth generation bootleg, shooting from the back of a smokey theater with a handheld camera gripped between his legs while he gets a blow job from a wild rabid tiger, have gotten a better copy of the film?

    Couldn't resist ;).
