However, there are many frames missing and vertical lines run through the print throughout. For those that have seen the Happinet or Forgotten Films BD's, you'll wonder if this isn't an upscaled DVD. Lastly, the extras are bizarre. The "Making of" documentary is about the 1990 remake (which is on the old Sony DVD). The "Fan of the Dead" doc can be found on many other bd's as well as YouTube. The only exclusive to this disc is the German trailer. Still a decent buy though for fans, and is apparently "limited."
Out of curiosity, do the "Network print" Blu-Rays offer any sort of A/V benefits over simply watching the Elite Millenium Edition DVD upscaled or is that DVD still the way to go as far as getting NOTLD in Full-Frame OAR? As far as I'm aware, the Elite DVD was sourced from the same elements as the "Dimension transfer" Blu-Rays and DVDs, but from an older, SD transfer that had none of the windowboxing inherent to that transfer.
