    I really have no issues with these releases - I mean we all knew or at least expected these weren't going to be top notch.

    I'd also like to point out that TEEN WOLF got a review from Blu Ray.com that was less than favorable, and that is a release by a major studio. That disc also only includes a 2.0 track.

    I'm just happy to see these movies with anamorphic transfers, I mean most of us have had to deal with films like H20 - that are 2.35:1 in non-anamorphic transfers that are over 10 years old. So having some of these titles even available anamorphic is more than enough to satisfy me. To top it off, I don't have to dish out $20 to get them, just a measly $5-10, can't complain too much at all.

    Exactly Chris.

    I'm interested in the new H6 and H20 releases. It will be great to see those anamorphic, especially H20.

    Me as well, also seeing the "bloodier" version of HELLRAISER III.

    It is worth noting that it appears the widescreen DVD of HELLRAISER III from Paramount is cropped - so we can assume the film was shot open matte which would mean the full screen presentation, as everyone should know, we are getting more information - not losing any. So I have no gripes about that either.

    The Canadian Lions Gate DVD of Hellraiser III is also full screen so I'm used to seeing it that way .Looks just fine to me.

    I see the echo bridge disc of Halloween 6 is on DVD but not H20. According to Amazon.

    I would love a DVD double feature of those two like Hellraiser 3/4.

    ALSO...for those interested...

    There's a double feature of Dracula 2000 and Cursed out there by Echo Bridge but Cursed it only available in it's PG-13 cut on it. I already own Dracula 2000 and hate Cursed so I won't be picking it up but just letting you guys know.

    That's really strange, it was listed just last week. Weird that it's missing now.

    Is there going to be a bluray of H20 on its own?

    I think it's hilarious :D

    Wow, I just saw the the Bloodline bluray has gone up to $19.99. I'm glad I pre-ordered it when it was 13.99.

    Hellraiser 3/4, Children of the Corn 2/3, From Dusk Till Dawn and Cursed/Dracula 2000 are available at my Wal-mart.

    Picked up the From Dusk Till Dawn disc and it's anamorphic and 2.0 audio. Looks and sounds great, though.

    I spotted the Halloween: H20 blu-ray at Target. I believe the price was $14.99.

    I think someone found the Crow: City Of Angels blu-ray at Best Buy, they had pictures posted on one of the online forums. I think the price was $9.99.

    Saw H2O, Crow: City and From, Dusk Till Dawn at Best Buy, all $9.99.

    The back cover of H2O says 1.78 though, when the old dvds and theater version was 2.35, so that's instantly fucked if coorect on cover.

    "On a similar note, Echo Bridge Entertainment has started releasing some of the catalog titles they've licensed from Miramax on Blu-ray at Best Buy stores, including Halloween: H20, The Yards, From Dusk Til Dawn and The Crow: City of Angels (SRP $9.99 each). Looks like they're exclusive to Best Buy until early May (5/3 to be specific), then they become available at Amazon and elsewhere. Following widely on 5/10 will be Equilibrium, Supercop, Dracula 2000, Hellraiser IV: Bloodline, Children of the Corn III: Urban Harvest, Halloween VI: The Curse of Michael Myers and Texas Rangers. Due on 5/15 will be some of the same titles (and others) as double-feature Blu-rays, including From Dusk Till Dawn/From Dusk Till Dawn 2: Texas Blood Money, Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers/Halloween: H20, Hellraiser: Bloodline/Hellraiser V: Inferno, Children of the Corn V: Fields of Terror/Children of the Corn 666: Isaac's Return, My Boss' Daughter/Duplex, Supercop/Twin Dragons, Pokemon Heroes/Pokemon: Destiny Deoxys and The Yards/The Lookout. Thanks to Bits reader Patrick M. for the spot!"
