Has anyone viewed the Child Of Glass disc yet?

I got the $10 Amazon gift card for $5 deal yesterday, and I'm thinking about using it on this.

Seems like Warner is the only company that offers the occasional MOD sale. Do the other companies (Sony, MGM, etc) ever have sales on these?

I have the Child of Glass DVD. The picture quality varies, sometimes it looks quite good and others when it looks pretty poor.

That is disappointing. I already placed the order for it this afternoon (along with Hey Dude: Season Two).

I haven't seen it in years and couldn't resist.

Well, it looks like it was sourced from a "video master" made at least as far back as the early 90's. Disney stated before that the original film prints decayed due to vinegar syndrome or whatever it is. Of course how true that is, I haven't a clue.

Not a bad little film! They have played it often on Comcast On Demand for free, so I caught it.

Forgot to mention PRAY FOR DEATH is the CUT version, not the UNCUT. Though, the transfer they used is 2.35:1 and looks amazing, for an MOD.

I'm sure a lot of people will be excited that New Year's Evil is finally hitting disc.

New Year's Evil and Caged Fury are definitely tempting. I'll pick these up if they ever drop below $10 (but being MOD titles, it seems like they never do).

I'm torn though, because I have New Year's in HD from TCM recorded to my DVR. Buying this would free up recording space, but it would also be standard-def.
