    The DVD used for comparison was the boxset DVD. I don't own the Infinifilm release for comparison.

    Thanks for clearing that up Vincent Pina. Wonder if we'll ever see it uncut on a digital platform.

    I could get screenshots from the Infinifilm release if you want rhett.

    Thanks for the offer, Dude, but comparisons aren't accurate unless they are snapped from the same system (given the programs used, the gamma settings, etc.). I do plan to get the disc at some point, so I will update the review when it does happen.

    Makes sense. It does differ a lot in colour compared to the Bluray and boxset dvd. More blue in tone I think.

    It's not even that much which got cut, yet it makes a big difference, at least for me who originally saw it uncut.

    I don't get it - it looks like they just turned up the brightness until the colors got a bit washed out. I can do that with a couple clicks of my remote control. With all the complaining about minor changes in aspect ratio on other movies, I'm wondering why nobody cares that the whole color balance is changed here? Did anyone ask the director of photography if he approved? [​IMG]

    the blu ray uses the same print as the infinifilm disc, i compared. it's also missing the same audio cues which really sucks, new line should've issued a new disc

    Correct me if I'm wrong Rhett, but I think it's the same theatrical version from the previous dvd releases. That said, if I remember correctly though, the only change the MPAA forced was the removal of the blood splash when Tina lands on the bed upon her death.

    For you folks in the U.S. wanting to buy a copy, aside from amazon.ca, try futureshop.ca, or bestbuy.ca

    The transfer IS spectacular!

    Has there been any mention of when this is coming to the US? I really don't want to pay $40+ for a bare bones bluray.

    I went ahead and bought this off ebay for $30. I know Warner/New Line are releasing it in April but after they slapped Jackie Earle Haley on the cover of the new Nightmare boxset [​IMG] and are blatantly advertising the remake on the new blu-ray - I have a feeling that it might just get a shoddy upgrade as there seems to be little respect for the original franchise anymore. Oh, and the summary on the back of the new bluray refers to Johnny Depp "as the ready steady of the hottie mcsmarty (Heather Langenkamp)". UGH! Looking forward to seeing this in high def from alliance though - love the reviews here on horrordigital! [​IMG]
