    I don't understand what everyone's complaining about. We've discussed this. It's clearly higher quality than the DVD, even if it's poorly master and much lower than Blu-ray is capable of. Troma says it's a new HD transfer, even if it can be demonstrated as anything but, we should trust them because they accidentally made a good release once. It's not like an older low budget movie like Toxie II can be expected to have lots of details, even if there's a clearly superior transfer released internationally. /s

    :rolleyes:

    Blu-Ray.com reviews Troma's Blu-Rays for Class of Nuke 'Em High :)confused:) and Class of Nuke 'Em High II.

    I'm not sure why the reviewer bothered with an OOP Blu-Ray that was released nearly 5 years ago. Arrow's 2012 UK release is cheap and region free and features lossless audio.

    First off, good on Troma for working to correct the issue.

    I ordered mine off of Amazon. I have until May 22 to return it, but I'm worried that if I ship it back right now, they'll just send me out the same defective disc. Should I just wait a week or so before processing the return?

    It'll probably be months before the corrected discs show up in retail stock. Even Criterion or Arrow "recalls" have had defective stock still showing up in retail even years later. And this is...Troma. A good percentage of buyers out there probably won't even care enough to bother to get a replacement.

    I ordered the Zombie Flesh Eaters Blu-ray direct from Arrow last year, and got the "defective disc" which had long since been recalled/replaced.

    Well, when you're right, you're right. Or even worse. I emailed Troma customer service today because the new discs still haven't shown up on Amazon, which basically renders me only able to get a refund, and my time to return the disc is running out. I asked them if they could help in any way (hey, maybe a replacement if you mail them the disc and proof of purchase?) and the response I got was:

    "Return it. We don't know exactly when the corrected disc will be available.

    Customer Service
    Troma Entertainment"

    Damn, you might as well send it back to Amazon for a refund and pick up the UK disc if it's going to be a while before Troma corrects this.

    I love this cheeseball counterpart to Maniac and have been waiting for a stateside release, although I thought Vinegar Syndrome might get their hands on this one. Glad to see it coming nonetheless, even if the usual raft of bizarre Troma "bonus features" don't really add much to the feature itself.
