    My anchor bay Quatermass & the Pit DVD has the same problem. It's so damn rare I can't bring myself to throw it away.

    My anchor bay Quatermass and the pit had the same jumping problems, So I tried ripping mine to my harddrive on the p.c and burnt it back onto a blank dvd and this worked fine the original jumps but the copy plays fine?

    What does the video signal (PAL/NTSC) has to do with the fame rate?
    I never said anything about PAL/NTSC.

    PAL is 25FPS and NTSC is 29.99~FPS. Blu-ray does support 25i HD, and there are a few rare birds out there with it.

    So if the person doing the master is an idiot, an HD transfer on a Blu-ray can have PAL speed-up. There is a surprisingly large number of idiots doing transfers, Kino and Media Blasters being good examples of hiring only morons to perform transfers, so I wouldn't put it past the Australians. Those 25i Blu-ray's I mentioned are mostly in England so I can see it happening in Australia.

    That would be disappointing.

    No...

    PAL and NTSC are television signal standarts, not to be never confused with frames per second standarts.

    Any progressive Blu-Ray can go from 1920×1080p (24fps) up to 1280x720p (59.94 fps).

    If we took into account the 1080p frames per second, it closes resembles the 25fps.

    Ah... They happened to standardize the frame rate while they were at it. US TVs run off of 60Hz so they made the NTSC FPS ~30 and UK TVs run off of 50Hz so they made the PAL FPS 25.

    Next time you tell someone they're wrong maybe you should see if you're right.

    Yes, next time you tell someone they're wrong maybe you should see first if you're right.

    We´re not talking TV here, we´re talking Blu-Ray.

    24p is the normal norm and it closes resembles the 25p format than the 29p.
    You can read that when the 24p is transferred to NTSC television, the rate is effectively slowed to 23.976 FPS (24×1000÷1001 to be exact), and when transferred to PAL or SECAM it is speed up to 25 FPS.

    This release being Australian is normal the slow times because maybe they were taken with the speed up made from the TV, I mean the majority of Australian releases are region B.

    But one of the benefits of having blu-ray is that there isn't supposed to be speed-up due to PAL to NTSC conversion. If this is happening in the case of Vampire Lovers, then it's evidence that the mastering was done wrong.

    No... I was only talking times.

    If the master is dome in 24p that´s the norm.
    Many tv systems refresh their signal, that being something out of the tv and not out of the blu-ray.

    I see this is getting confusing.

    Maybe I´m not explaining right.
    Sorry for that. No need to get offensive X-human.

    So, there you go: 1080p (1.85) and Region Free (plus video extras in NTSC). What more could you want? ;)
