    Oh nice so they addressed this issue too. Sent an email.

    I'm certain they'll issue replacements for Black Christmas.

    What's the audio issue with "Child's Play"? I hadn't read anything about that one having problems.

    The audio channels were reversed. Left channel on the right and right channel on the left.

    The mono track sounds the ‘purest’ in terms of the film’s tone though it suffers from some hiss. - Rock Shock Pop

    Lol "some hiss"

    Do these reviewers not actually watch the discs??

    Any updates on Black Christmas and the "mono" track massacre? I haven't heard a word.

    I received the Child's Play replacement disc in the mail earlier today. That was super-fast, as I only contacted them on the 7th, and received a reply back on the 9th that it was in the mail.

    Kudos to Shout for once again making the replacement process easy. Hopefully they will issue a replacement for Black Christmas. :confused:

    You should be able to print out an invoice for your Amazon order and then just email Shout the PDF copy of the invoice. That's what I did for the Army of Darkness replacement program and had no issues.

    I just forward my shipping confirmation email. Haven't had a problem with that yet.

    Just from the caps I don't really think either one looks more detailed, the old one looks a little muted and the new one looks a little boosted. I am pretty sure from what I read that the new one will look better in motion though.

    The new transfer is far better in my opinion. I've seen it in motion and it looks very filmic. It's grainy but it looks well resolved, it doesn't look chunky and blocky like the last release.

    Look at screenshot 5 on caps-a-holic, the difference between the new transfer and the old one is extremely apparent in that shot.

    I'm actually very impressed with the video on this release. The audio, however...
