Phantasm series on Bluray

Has anyone heard of this set: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Phantasm-...ht_1222wt_1037

I stumbled across it and was curious to know if this had legit HD transfers of all the Phantasm films.

It looks like a German or Austrian release. And you have to be careful with these, because a lot of them are just bad SD upscales.

Considering the cheap price, I really doubt these are legit HD transfers. Also, they may just be German dubbed versions, and not even have the English soundtracks. "340 MIN DEUTSCH" leads me to believe that's probably the case here.

That would make sense. I was hoping this might mean that we could expect releases of Phantasm 1, 3&4 here.

Thanks for the input

They are not fullscreen VHS rips, they are upscaled 4:3 DVDs, I think the fourth one was even letterboxed, anyway the quality is okay but definitely not an upgrade and it's only got German audio anyway.

Starway International owns I, III, and IV with Anchor Bay currently handling distribution (although for some reason the first film is still on MGM's website)

Universal own US rights for II while Starway International owns international rights.

Obviously. I really wish some other studio that gave a damn would get the rights.

Either that or Anchor Bay gets off their ass and release these films.

If they did a box set it'd be cool if they left a spot for part 2 so we could put in the Scream Factory release.
