Pretty much yeah, but Trancers is a little below average in A/V quality even for Full Moon DVD standards.

And some of their old DVD's are Pan & Scan ( The Day Time Ended) or heavily cut/censored versions like Fairy Tales and Beach Babes from Beyond.

I'll just wait for the UK Blu-rays. Better encodes, audio, and packaging.

I'm sure the US Subspecies sequel Blu-rays will have the same old antiquated lossy audio as all of their previous Blu-ray releases.

88 Films now have the specs up for their Blu-ray Subspecies trilogy of releases:

http://www.88films.co.uk/subspecies-bluray.html

http://www.88films.co.uk/subspecies-2-bluray.html

http://www.88films.co.uk/subspecies-3-bluray.html

I think it's safe to say these will be the definitive HD editions, just like their Puppetmaster Blu-rays.

88 Films is also releasing Dollman:

http://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=10510

"Independent British distributors 88 Films have revealed that they are planning to bring to Blu-ray director Albert Pyun's horror fantasy film Dollman (1991), starring Tim Thomerson, Jackie Earle Haley, and Kamala Lopez. The preliminary release date set by the distributors is June 10th."

With all these releases, I wonder when Full Moon will announce a US counterpart for them.

Saw Dollman the other day for the first time. It took me at least five tries to get through it all. Such a shitty movie that moves at snail pace. I was surprised.

I don't think it's quite that bad, but it's definitely one of my least favorite early FM efforts.

I really wish 88 Films would release Meridian, but that might be in need of a new HD master first. I know they were asked about Tourist Trap, and Full Moon would need to strike a new HD master first.

I was going to order Meridian and Pit early this month but I glad I held off because of the recent Pit blu announcement... that move made me held of even more my desire to buy Meridian.

It's pretty bad, but then Albert Pyun is a pretty bad director. One of the worst in fact. Dollman is one of his better efforts.

And Albert Pyun studied under Akira Kurosawa too. But yeah, Dollman is better than a lot of his films. His recent film Tales of an Ancient Empire (semi-sequel to Sword & the Sorcerer) is beyond bad.

He did direct Alien from L.A. though, which I love.

I just said it was one of Pyun's better films. What more do you want?
