    That's on my copy too - I gather they were trying for glitter, but yeah, it really does look ugly and out of place. The menu itself is terribly ugly, too, so it's not really a big hindrance.

    I think I'll keep my Elite disc and just rent the new version, as I only need to see the extras once, since Elite DVD is progressively scanned.

    I scored a brand new and sealed copy of the Elite dvd on ebay. Best part is it only cost me $9 with shipping! I'm downloading a copy to watch seeing as this sells for around $50 used. :D

    It's gone out of print and now there's the fact that it's transfer is better than this new release as it's not interlaced.

    ...and it's not as compressed as the transfer on the new disc.

    The only thing the new disc has going for it are a few special features. Not even the menus look good.

    The Elite disc is one of those DVD's that I love being sold for high amounts considering I bought mine new on Ebay years ago for $1 haha.

    I just picked this up today, and I must say the transfer is pretty good. Compression and interlacing on my tv wasn't really a problem, the transfer was nice and warm. From all the negativity being thrown around all of the websites, I thought it was going to be bad like 'Prom Night' Echo Bridge DVD or the dvd interlacing problems the 360 has while playing DVD'S, but that just wasn't the case. Not bad at all.

    I had both discs, and the elite is more washed out, but it is slightly cleaner. The extras on the new disc are good, and the menus are cheesy, but not too bad, more creative than the elite disc.

    Nice to hear something positive. What kind of TV do you have?

    It's an older 34" Panasonic CRT Widescreen TV.

    Yep. It's from 2004. You nailed it, it does 480P/1080i. It's a nice little set, and I've always like Panasonic stuff.

    I finally got a chance to lsiten to the Audio Commentary, and it really was very informative and well done.

    Did anyone else notice a screen "jitter" when the layers change on the DVD? I even skipped back to see again, and it did the same thing. Maybe it's just on Sony DVD players, but I've never noticed another disc doing that, and rarely do I even notice a disc's layer change on the player. Not that this new disc is technically much of a "dual-layer" anyways, but...

    OK - I'm about 30 years late to the party on this one but it is available in very good quality on Netflix streaming (ran it through my blu ray) - How did I miss this? I've seen every other slasher in the world. What a great ending. Instant classic for me. Love it!

    That's what made it so great! My mom was in town to see my new kid and we're sitting there watching it and even she, having endured watching these films with me when I was a kid, turns to me as the credits roll and says, "that was awesome!" I love the awkward sudden end. Brilliant.
