    I won't say that he's an unreliable source, but it oftentimes seems that Jim Wynorski is a few years too quick to unveil release plans for some of the films he's directed.

    At the same time, Jim couldn't remember which label, or indeed Country it was coming from, so there's still hope it'll appear if he has recorded a new commentary for it.

    I'm sure you're right. It'll creep onto BD eventually...

    A bunch of Vestron blu-ray titles are below $20 at Amazon again.

    Saves me $30-40. I’ll wait for the Umbrella release baggio mentioned or for this to go on sale.

    This is reminding me of Waxwork all over again. When this line stops, someone like SHOUT will re-release it with a proper transfer but their own shitty artwork...or better artwork if it is Arrow.

    I'm doubting Umbrella's release will be any better as they usually use existing masters and don't do their own. I hope I'm wrong though.

    Kind of terrible of this Vestron title costing so much with such a shiity master. They could have at least tried to put some effort into its presentation.

    I always wonder, I saw the screengrabs of Return of the Living Dead 3, the German and American versions, and the German looked much better to me ( as did the Waxwork I bought ( again!) from Germany. I know Vestron is releasing movies we want but are the transfers lackluster ,for lack of a better word?

    There are things with the Vestron range that annoys me, the limited status, but no details of how limited, the collectors status but them using those awful eco cases and some of the transfers, I brought the Vestron waxwork and sold it as it was quite underwhelming, I've recently purchased the German release, and the difference is night and day.

    You never know, Vestron could still wind up being the better version. Umbrella's Beyond of Re-Animator reviews haven't been so good compared to Vestron's version. Myself, I'm still confused on the whole thing. Kinda disappointed too. Have been very high on Umbrella lately. They really stepped up as far as getting noticed (as a player in the business) and released some good stuff this last year imho. Waiting for actual screen cap comparisons between the two Umbrella/Vestron Beyond Re-Animator.
