I watched the Code Red Blu-ray of Just Before Dawn last night, and it's an obvious improvement over the old Shriek Show DVD - there are some issues, such as the graveyard photo shoot, which looks like the camera lens was smeared with Vaseline, but I suspect that it was filmed that way. The nigh time scenes are a revelation - you can actually see what's going on now. That said, there is an improvement in detail throughout - I never noticed the contour of Chris Lemmon's manhood in his too tight jeans before.

Just Before Dawn is probably my least favourite of the vintage Lieberman horrors. It is beautifully shot, but the underlying music is too sparsely used, which means that the best scenes don't have quite the impact they could have had. That said, I still like, and I'm glad Bill decided to put it out on blu.
