    Dr. Giggles looks great upscaled (at least on my set) so I'm not surprised Warners are releasing it to Blu-ray. Giggles should look amazing in HD though. Double dip for me.

    I didn't like this one as much as others on here seem to. Actually I thought it was the worst movie in the Twisted Terror Collection.

    I wonder if the Blu-ray is the correct aspect ratio. The movie was shot in 2.35:1 but the DVD is 1.85:1. It's the reason why I still haven't watched the DVD.

    Damn. I just bought the dvd in the last 3-4 months for $3. Fun flick but probably not one I'll make the jump to HD unless it hits a bargain bin.

    "Doctor, doctor! Give me the news! I've got a bad case of lovin' you!" :evil:

    Love this movie! Otis is great fun also. I already own both on DVD, but I might have to upgrade if the price is right.

    Agreed. The way studios choose what movies to release on Blu Ray just baffles me!

    I haven't seen either and this double feature is a cheap perfect chance for me to check these out.

    Wow.... Warner releases this hunk o' junk on blu-ray, and Ken Russell's "The Devils" still lingers on in obscurity-land, not even a DVD release in sight. Sickening.

    You'd think maybe Warner would invest in some films that they haven't remastered in AGES like Badlands, Lolita, Barry Lyndon...

    But wow, we get THIS? Whatever. Pass.

    I'd cut off my left nut for a blu of Barry Lyndon. I don't see why that was left out of the first batch of Kubrick blus.

    Sigh. So many haters. Dr.Giggles is damn good fun. Dumb? Yes but entertaining as hell.

    Or perhaps something that's already been re-mastered in HD and encoded like... oh let's say... Forbidden Planet!

    I remember reading at blu-ray.com that it's coming out later this year. Pretty sure I read that.

    Warner's said that every year since the HD-DVD release. Sure eventually it'll be out, but I'm not holding my breath.

    Yeah, I totally forgot about Forbidden Planet. That's definitely another one. Like, wtf?
