A lot of these films (Madman, Halloween) I like better without the filters. I'm sure I'll feel the same way about Deadly Blessing.

Adding filters after the fact (Night Of The Living Dead), that's just bullshit.

Blu-ray.com review of Deadly Blessing: http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Deadly...Blu-ray/50308/ This was written by the same guy who gave Shout Factory's Halloween III release a bad review.

I've started to take this website with a grain of salt, I've thus far never been disappointed with any of Shout! Factory's output and I'm ecstatic that they are releasing this often overlooked Craven classic.

This guy just doesn't need to be reviewing these types of releases.

I didn't read a lot of it, just the video quality review, but I see they pretty much gave everything a 3/5. His complaint about the picture quality is more like "it's not Avatar" then anything else. While there may be some over processing it's well balance and not compressed to hell. 3/5 seems to expect too much.

But what's the beef with the 3/5 for extras? What more do you want? Sure you can nitpick the video down to 3/5 if you're being anal but this includes a commentary track, about an hour of video extras, trailers, spots, photo gallery... WTF else could they do?

Blu-ray.com is pretty worthless as a whole. I glance the forums because info breaks there first sometimes but that's about all the value I can find there. It's mostly baseless bitching alternated with another person asking for the 1000th time if the discussed Blu-ray release is region free.

In their review for the movie ATM, I seem to recall them referencing a filmmaker by the name of Albert Hitchcock.

You know, I would have thought Deadly Friend was the black sheep of the Craven catalogue, or better yet, The Hills Have Eyes Part II.
