    I don't think Humongous is boring at all. It weirds me out because I consider it second tier.

    I enjoyed THE RETURN. Greydon Clark made some fun little horror movies back in those days.

    What is the general consensus? To those of you who own both the dvd and the recent blu ray release of "Humongous,"...is it worth the double dip?...or should the audio issue keep me away until a better blu comes along (if ever...)...I really wanted that slipcover, but that's a really stupid reason to buy a movie with sub-par av quality...

    The transfer is fine and better than the DVD. The audio problem is annoying however, and noticeable to varying degrees for 10+ minutes (really noticeable for several minutes). I wouldn't discourage anyone from buying it, but for the price the audio defect is definitely an issue to consider first.

    The audio glitch on Humongous is annoying but it dissipates after a few minutes. If you focus on the action, and not the glitch, you should be able to handle it OK. The film looks better than ever and is worth the investment IMO.

    It's weird, but in the grand scope of things it's not a deal breaker. Very happy with my purchase.

    I'm surprised how many consider the audio glitch to be a non-issue. I've had my copy on my desk for more than a month, and when I finally popped it in, it was even worse than I had expected. I really appreciate Walt's efforts, but I must say, that reverberating effect is extremely jarring and unnatural-sounding, and I daresay it would be obvious even to someone who had never seen the film before. From a bigger company, it would definitely have warranted a replacement disc. Walt may not have the finances to correct the error, but he could at least have publically acknowledged that it was there.

    That said, the film looks the best I've ever seen it. It's still quite dark, but detail is improved, and you can make out more of the monster's face than in the DVD (we still don't get to see him clearly). There is a disclaimer near the beginning of the film stating that multiple sources had been used, but from a strictly visual perspective, I was pleasantly surprised. Only a few shots in the scene with the dog chasing Nick look smeared, but I don't think they ever looked good in any print.

    I think only The Farmer has been toiling in the shadows longer.
