    I have the uncut VHS for Slaughter High, so I don't think that I am going to shell out for the Lionsgate disc, unless I see it in the store for like, under 5 bucks.

    And Body Boy,the quality is pretty damned distracting on the DVD.You might do well to stick with the VHS.

    The piss-poor Lionsgate release of this neat little film is currently at Wal-Mart, of all places, as part of a 4-pack of titles- My Best Friend is a Vampire, Repossessed, Slaughter High, & Silent Night, Deadly Night 3: Better Watch Out.
    The price- $5. Yeah, crappy transfer but for $1.25...

    Off topic, but are you sure that Silent Night, Dealdly Night 3 in that set is in widescreen and not from the Silent Night, Deadly Night 3-Pack?

    *No*
    Umm.... Yeeeah... more on that.
    I already corrected my other post on the topic.
    It is NOT widescreen, but some joker apparently flagged it as widescreen during the authoring procees, sooo... if you have an Blu-Ray player or upscaling DVD player- it's going to stretch it as if it were anamorphic.
    Unfortunately, the composition is such that I didn't even notice it was stretched until half-way into the film (actually, it looked remarkably good stretched). This is the only time that I've seen a 4:3 film exhibit this anomaly and none of the other films in the set, including Slaughter High, have this problem.
    I'm actually watching the move right now & "forcing" my Blu-Ray player NOT to stretch the content.
    So yeah... it is the same one from the box-set. I just got excited and jumped the gun.
    More on Slaughter High- it is DEFINITELY the worst transfer of the four films in the above referenced box set- by a long shot.

    I skipped through a few chapters of my German Slaughter High DVD I bought at a DVD/Blu-ray convention and it looks great in 16x9 widescreen. Lots of fine detail, good colors and the biggest surprise: the opening title is April Fool's Day.

    So, where's a good place to get that German steelbook? Hopefully at a decent price.
