    I wonder if the image quality is gonna be improved. The AB one had some terrible compression issues, especially in dark scenes where there is terrible pixellation...

    According to a Fangoria article, there's a new transfer, along with a new commentary by GAR, Richard and Donald Rubinstein, Tom Savini, and Mike Gornick. The old AB commentary has also been ported over.
     
  8. Wow this new cover art look superb!
    I'm soo so sorry to those people who think the original DVD art from AB looks better, you may be retarded.
    Purple and yellow always go together!
     
  9. That custom cover is great. I wish they'd have chosen that for the new box art. Add me to the ranks of those who just don't like the new art. There's something about it that is just too "horror movie" for my taste. Martin is a film that goes above and beyond the moniker of horror.

    Being that Martin is easily one of my favorite movies ever, I'll almost certainly pick up the Lion's Gate release. Let's just hope there actually is some improvement over the transfer and some added special features.

    Mine did not have an insert. Did anyone else get an insert?

    Nope, no insert. Neither did Dead End. Expect it in a $10.99 disc, but a $19.99 disc, come on?!

    I'm just happy to have a copy period.

    Could someone please post some screen caps comparing the new 1.85 Anamorphic DVD to the orignal full frame Anchor Bay DVD? I believe that some unnecessary matting is being used on the new release.
