I can not wait, greatest new ever. I was stuck on whether to get Blu-ray or not. Now I know what I am getting.

Of the first 6 they announced, I'm getting:

The Bird with the Crystal Plumage
Vigilante
Maniac
Fire & Ice

No interest in The Final Countdown, and I'm happy with the 2-disc of Stendhal I already own from BU.

I wonder how they'll handle the grain on that one!

It'll be grainy as fuck, I'll tell you that much. Grain's not really a "flaw" or "defect" in the print, anyway. Grain is quite inherent in film stock. Some films just end up grainier than others.

Considering this was widely known as one of the grainiest American DVDs out there, fans had ample reason to worry, but the end result is happily much better than expected. The second half of the main titles onfolding over beach shots still look very problematic due to the heavy film processing (as usual, the sky looks so noisy you feel like you need to adjust an antenna), but after that it's a huge improvement over the DVD. The edge enhancement isn't nearly as severe, and while there is a naturalistic film-like feel to the images, the highly increased detail results in a much more solid, satisfying presentation. The night scenes in particular are much more coherent and solid-looking for the most part, while the highly textured shots (such as Freddy's camera lens POV in the opening scene) are stable and free from the shimmering and jittering which plagued the standard def version. You can happily chalk this one up as a winner. In another nice touch, the film has also finally been given English subtitles for the deaf and hearing impaired, along with optional Spanish and French subtitles.

the transfer looks godawful. I'm shocked to read how kindly this release gets treated in reviews. jezzz. so glad I rented it from netflix rather than having spent 20 bucks on it. and no, I didn't expect pristine high end state of the art image quality. the stendhal syndrome BD though makes me question if BU's quality control even bothered to take a look at their product before they released it.... unbeliebavle!

Agreed, must own. I remember once owning this movie in a tin under the alias Let Sleeping Corpses Lie. I haven't seen the movie since that DVD was released though, so seeing it again in HD will be a treat.

Have to pick this one up since I never got Blue Undergrounds re-release. Is it the exact same cut as Let Sleeping Corpses Lie, or are there any extra scenes?

The cut is identical but the picture quality is FAR superior to the AB version which I thought was perfect to begin with. But the work BU did shows and compliments the film very well.

I can't wait for the Blu Ray.
