    Judging from the screen comparisons Scorpion posted online awhile back, this new transfer will be much better.

    It’s not perfect (still a scratch here, a tear there) but a huge leap up over the previous release. This is one of my favorite slashers, no regrets about the double dip.

    I just watched this blu tonight and really enjoyed it. I have to admit I have only seen this movie once years ago on dvd and thought it was okay. On second viewing I loved it! I thought it looked excellent on this release and the last 20 or so minutes are gorgeous. So glad I bought this!

    Last time I watched this a few months back, I realized the main blonde bitchy character, is a broad from one of my wife's favorite tv shows. Real Housewifes of somewhere awful......any ways, I take a lot of humor out of pointing out the fact I've seen her naked while my wife is trying to enjoy the show.......hahahaha you would figure after the 20th time the joke would grow old......nope lol

    I look forward to getting the blu soon...

    I'm not sure. Based on the original reissue announcement it seems that there won't be a non-slip release.

    Yes, it's a little confusing.

    The first 1500 will have the slip card. The reverse will feature the infamous newspaper ads with the screaming mummy skull

    This blu ray edition will be a limited edition of 1,500 so be sure to place your order when it goes live on Ronin Flix.

    Again this blu editon will only be pressed 1500 units, so grab it before the ship sets sail....

    Currently from the Ronin site.

    Blu-ray includes a Limited Edition Slipcover while supplies last.


    I guess I got to cough up $24.99 if I want to guarantee a copy. Really think that's little high considering they are basically admitting their prior release was sub par.

    I think we all hate to admit how things were 10 years ago but you have to admit 10 years ago the scanning Technologies was not as great as it is now today, so much things can look so much better as you know there are many Studio films in which the scan they did was done 10 years ago as well and today they don't look as good , I mean just cuz it was already done, we just cant say that's the way it is , the end, I think if there's an opportunity to do it again to be much better clarity in image. I think all label should jump at the chance but that's again my opinion
