    I wouldn't be surprised if many of these DVD/Blu-ray re-releases utilize different transfers and aspect ratios. Image used a different (and inferior) HD source for the first Hellraiser Blu-ray for example.

    Agreed. It's a mixed bag. Some of the scenes on the Blu-ray look pretty good, and some look rather poor.

    Still, it looked better than I had feared. It's hardly what I'd call a great HD transfer though...it could have looked so much better.

    I noticed some compression artifacting here and there. The disc size is under 17gb. I don't see why some of these studios don't maximize the bitrate more to make use of the extra space.

    If you're not a big fan of the film, and already own the old DVD (with far more bonus features) you'll find little reason to upgrade.

    I was hoping the extras from the 20th aniversary disc would be on the blu cause I didn't pick it up on dvd. Does anyone have a rundown of what's on it compared to the first release?

    GOOD NEWS!!

    They didn´t fuck up "Dead Heat" :)

    Just saw some samples from a rip from the Image disc, and from what I saw, it sure as hell looks like it´s a pretty fresh HD transfer with lots of fine details and the filmgrain intact. Though, still a little bit 80:s soft in spots, but that´s typical of the stock they used in that decade.

    Maybe "Hills..." and "Hellbound" was the worst of the bunch, and we will get better quality from now on :)

    I'm curious how Vamp will look and sound in comparison to the Arrow disc.

    I already own the Arrow disc, but I just want reassurance (though judging from the comments on their other releases, I'm safe).

    Wow, K-mart has these? I should have stopped by earlier, damnit! Still want to get Hellbound despite lousy reviews.
