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.
