I can't count how many times I've done that, But anyway it's a decent zombie flick, you could do a lot worse.

One of the cheapest movies you'll ever see in your lifetime, that's for sure.

Totally agree! What a waste! I like this film a lot, but this is an example of taking advantage of the fans. Those in the know will realize there really isn't that much resolution in Super 8 film. It might look a bit better, but it'll be 4:3 and not worth an upgrade.

Probably very minimal. A better encode surely, but I doubt there will be much upgrade in any visual details.

Audio might be a little better as lossless.

As someone who have had all our Super 8 mm home movies transfered to first DVD and now lately on BD, the improvements are more noticeable than you think.
Not only are filmgrain better handled by the higher bitrate, but the increase in fine-details was bigger than expected as well

Some thought that 16mm wouldn΄t look any better in highdef. Well it did, big time.
8mm don΄t have the resolution of a 16mm print, but there is still enough to warrant an upgrade to BD.

88 Films had previously announced this would be region free, but looks like J.R. Bookwalter is making them region lock it now so he can release his own $35 limited edition IndieGoGo blu-ray release here in the US.

Movies that are shot on 16 or 8mm always look worse to me on Blu Ray especially if there is lots of black/shadows in the film/lighting. This may the encode or compression, but I generally find they look better on DVD. I'm not saying that it can't look better on Blu, just that it hasn't to my eyes.

Cool by me. Always down to directly support filmmakers.

Very tempting, but I'll probably just stick with the 88 Films release. It would be nice to hear some further details about what the 88 Films Blu-ray will have though.

I didn't say I wouldn't get it... I would just really like to know more details about the 88 Films release. $35 is a lot to spend for a movie that truthfully isn't among my favorites. It's about $20 more than what I have the 88 Films release pre-order locked in for.

If someone is region locked to "A" then it's the only option, but the region locking of the 88 Films release isn't an impediment for me.

I get it - I just feel like you are the guy that ALWAYS has those super obscure limited/indiegogo type releases, no matter how obscure. I thought it was a fun movie but less as a movie itself and more as "this is the type of movie I would have made in my hometown in my 20s" kind of way.
