Unlike Scream Factory's edition of The Fog, which I received today along with this one, The Howling transfer DOES have a problem, albeit one that is easily rectified (at least on my Panasonic Plasma): the transfer is far too light. As much as I love rich and deep blacks, I generally set my black level in my plasma panel to "light" because in 99.9% of films setting it to "dark" will cause a major loss in detail. However, to get this edition of The Howling to look the way it is supposed to, I had to change the setting to "dark". Once I did that, the film looked absolutely perfect.
