    All 3 Italian titles in the same month? Hopefully not at the same time lol. I plan on gritting my teeth and waiting until April for the Deluxe editions.

    DEATH SHIP screenshot comparisons:

    Here are screen grabs of the new 2k scan master vs the old HD master, new one first, old one next, so you can see, major difference

    Nice! DEATHSHIP (again) it IS, then! I'm keeping my older copy as well.

    Looking good. Looking forward to revisiting Death Ship via this new scan. Should look great on my new 75" TV.

    That is a stellar improvement, as is Death Ship.

    It looks like this will be the 6th time I've bought House on Sorority Row since VHS many years ago. :eek: It seems like there is always yet another superior version coming out of the film...but hopefully this is the last until 4K! This ranks up there with Hellraiser and Hellbound on the amount of times I've re-bought the movie over time. But, it is a personal favorite, so who cares! o_O

    Bloody hell. Both of these transfers are amazing! I agree with Kat: there always seems to be a better transfer. It's great, but also a bit frustrating.

    I don't remember that last BD release of HoSR looking so crappy but, oh well, definitely triple-dipping on this.

    It looks crappy. I just picked up the 88Films release (which uses the old Scorpion transfer), so I’m slightly annoyed that a new edition was announced but man that looks like a great restoration. Guess I’m buying this movie again for the fucking like 14th time.

    (Also might have to get Death Ship as well)

    Looks like there's more picture information in that screencap. That's always a good thing.
