Yeah, they fixed it a long time ago. I bought a copy like 4-5 months ago from Amazon UK, and it was the corrected disc.

Cool, thanks! Didn't realize how long ago it was reissued.

The first release had audio sync issues. If you pull up the thread for the Studio Canal release on Blu-ray.com, it goes into further detail.

Thanks. Thankfully I ordered this months after its release and received the corrected version.

The guys at DVD Drive-In and Diabolique Magazine have put together a petition in an attempt to convince Warner Bros. to release their Hammer Films holdings, including initial series installments in their Dracula, Frankenstein and Mummy franchises and later entries like TASTE THE BLOOD OF DRACULA (1970) and FRANKENSTEIN MUST BE DESTROYED (1969). So swing by and sign up -- it only takes a minute, and it's for a good cause!

Really wish someone, anyone, would give us a BD release of The Devil Rides Out that hasn't been messed with like the UK release!

Sven signed up! Nice. I'm surprised he didn't put Berwyn, IL though!

Without any solid details I think I'll bump this thread:

Wrong.

Several weeks ago, I had a meal with friends from WB, and while I cannot report titles, I can report that things are alive and well at both Warner Home Video, as well as the Warner Archive Collection.

2015 portends to be their biggest year since the start of the format.

A quick overview.

Three-strip Technicolor. Minnelli. Bogart. Flynn. Davis. Astaire. Garbo. Sinatra.

Hammer Horror is a high priority.

The immense amount of work (and expense) that must go into each film to make it right for Blu-ray can sometimes hold things up, but what's coming represents some of the finest productions from the Golden Age of Hollywood.

I would start saving up now. For those who love classic cinema, it's going to be an expensive year.

They're very much aware which are the Bogart or Flynn or Cagney films.

Problem is the cost to get these films up to Blu-ray quality. Scanning is easy. The rest can be extremely difficult and expensive, as to do thing properly, it's a return to the nitrate on the earlier titles.

Budgets can easily top 80k per b/w title just to get it prepared, on top of compression, authoring, and the costs of VAM.

All of this adds up, and we've not discussed the exigencies of color.
http://www.hometheaterforum.com/topi...ray/?p=4117716

Hammer has been suspiciously absent from Warner's release windows these past few years (considering Hammer's UK press releases almost always touted Warner's involvement). My concern has always been that Hammer's lackluster work is to blame and my hope has been Warner was slowly but surely working on their own genuine restorations.

Word is a four film Hammer Blu-ray boxset is in the works. Which makes the math hard. Either we're getting Frankenstein/Dracula/Mummy/??? or perhaps Frankenstein/Dracula/Dracula Has Risen from the Grave/Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed. But Mummy is already through the wringer in the UK so that makes the most sense.

I hope Doctor X is on slate too, especially if they included the B&W alternate version (even if just in SD).
