    Yeah those screenshots look amazing. They got rid of that ugly yellow tint the movie has always had. But as tempting as it is, I’m gonna pass on this though, I want the deluxe edition that’s coming out in a few months.

    I omitted some comparison shots as they might be considered spoilers.

    The Unseen!!?? YESSS this was one title I really regretted not picking up when it was first released. Good to know Scorpion is going back and remastering these films. They look great.

    Actually, I’ve seen it but then I think that I “unseen” it. I don’t remember much about it other than
    the twist that it is a retarded guy in the cellar. I’ve never been a fan of the retarded latch key kid sub genre

    Ha! It's such a nauseating plot device. Such a gross little movie, and not in a gore way.

    I saw Unseen and did not find it particularly exciting. There is worse out there, mind you, but I really don't get why this one needs revisiting on blu.

    I like The Unseen and its lack of political correctness. Will definitely upgrade.

    Death Ship, on the other hand, I consider downright lame. I didn't even get the first Blu-ray of it.

    I hate upgrading blu-rays to blu-rays, but when they're favorites like The Unseen or House On Sorority Row, it makes it a little easier.

    When traveling Highway 1 a few years back, I made it a point to stop in Solvang based on this movie. Cute town. Even tracked down the old wooden hotel.

    What's the deal with Scorpion upgrading and re-releasing these titles? Are they going back and redoing all their previous releases? I can understand House on Sorority Row since the old disc is OOP. I personally like The Unseen and will buy it again but I was just curious what the logic behind that one and Death Ship getting upgrades was.

    Re-releases are something we'll be seeing a lot more of. It's what happens when they don't pick up anything new.

    I like that new art for The Unseen - that would make a great limited poster like how Shout! does.

    Speaking of Opera, what's better than having 3 versions for the deluxe edition? 4 versions!

    From Walt on Facebook (special thanks to DVD Newsflash):

    ""OK this is something my colorist has been bugging me to post to explain that whole ratio controversy with stills. I told him to leave it , but he insist it, and well, yes now there will be a 4th version of OPERA on the 3 disc now FYI

    The comparison stills below are proof that the previous DVD's accuracy can't be trusted. What you are seeing is a comparison between the un-altered scan that I received from Italy,
    and the academy-framed previous DVD release from Anchor Bay

    In the comparison o f still #1, the left side on the DVD is chopped off like a normal academy aperture framing
    (because that's where the optical sound track would go on a release print).

    Then look at the comparison of still #2. Now you see the entire left side of the picture, and the right side is cut off. It makes no sense that their Colorist even did that, because now the action at the right is cut off, and the main actors are not even centered. The framing is not consistent throughout the entire feature,
    so that DVD release is inaccurate to be used as any kind of reference.

    Scorpion has already released what we feel is the correct Super 35 2.35 letterboxed image. We are also going to
    release an academy aperture version which will have the correct consistent academy framing throughout. Therefore, it's not going to be the same framing as the previous DVD release. We hope you enjoy it.""
