A friend of mine emailed them about ZOMBIE, they apparently do not have the rights to put it out on Blu Ray.

I couldn't imagine who would but I'm hoping they get off their ass soon and put it out!

Although, the DVD version of it does look awesome upscaled to 1080p - but nothing compares to the real thing.

If anyone, I'd guess Media Blasters. I doubt it went back to Anchor Bay, but who knows?

the trouble with ZOMBIE was the soundtrack , the old anchorbay version rocked the speakers all 5 , the two new version MB ond BU and even the euro version with DTS just sound like mono in my ears. Am hoping maybe a DTS_Master og DD-TRuHD would be more like the old anchorbay and again fill the living room with wind and screams

that said will probably buy LDatMM and MAniac

Damn, I was under the impression that the Zombie rights were to revert back to Blue Underground exclusively something like 2 years after the BU and SS DVDs came out.

And now we arrive at the most surprising incarnation of The New York Ripper -- a Blu-Ray from Blue Underground newly transferred from the original negative. Simply put, it's a beauty; the huge leap in detail is astounding, and you can even make out the fine patterns in Mrs. Weissberger's hairnet. You'd never believe this film could look so good, and the eerie landscape shots (especially during the first ferry murder) now look like finely rendered landscapes out of a nightmare. Yes, it still looks like an early '80s Italian horror movie so anyone expecting something comparable to Wall-E isn't going to get it, but there's no way this could look any better. Interestingly and not surprisingly, as this is from the negative that pesky street shot of Malco is nowhere to be found, which doesn't affect the movie much at all. The original English audio can be played either in the original mono or a fun DTS-HD 7.1 mix which pumps De Masi's infectious music to the surround channels and really adds to the entertainment value. Optional subtitles are available in English, French or Spanish. Along with a new HD version of the trailer you get two exclusive extras, also hi-def; the first, "NYC Locations Then and Now," spends a nifty four minutes comparing location shots from the film in '81 with the current locales, including Times Square, the subway to Nassau Street, the Staten Island ferry, the Cavalier Hotel, and of course the now-destroyed World Trade Center, all set to De Masi's jazzy score. "I'm an Actress!" spends ten minutes chatting with Czech-born actress Zora Kerova (in Italian with English subtitles), who was hired from Prague for the film in the quick but memorable role as a sex show performer who gets the wrong end of a broken bottle. She calls her sex scene "the most difficult I've ever done" but has better memories of her murder scene; Kerova's other notable films from the period include Anthropophagus, Cannibal Ferox and The New Barbarians. Most interestingly the still-gorgeous actress talks about how the role got her in hot water with her native country, shares sometimes unpleasant memories of other directors like Bruno Mattei and Umberto Lenzi, and remembers a nice relationship with Fulci, whom she believes was more angry at the world than women in particular. A standard def DVD of the special edition is also available, but since it costs slightly more and can't compete with the glory of watching this nasty classic in full 1080p, it should be obvious which one to buy.

Well, it was mentioned in the other thread:

Blue Underground's Blu-ray and Special Edition DVD of THE NEW YORK RIPPER were newly retransfered directly from the original camera negative. It does not contain the misplaced scene found near the end of the film, as this was never in the original negative.
as per Blue Underground.

Can't wait to get NYR now, as if I wasn't excited enough already. Lots of cool stuff coming from BU.

What was the misplaced scene? I only saw this once (and not gonna lie...not a huge fan). But what's different about the AB transfer and the transfer for the new BU blu-ray?
