Not ordering this anymore.

What the hell went wrong here?
HD master? Looks like it was mastered from an VHS master with the soft look and bleeding colors.
Maybe they DNR:ed the shit out of it, loosing the details with the grain.
PLUS the blue filters are missing

Keeping my Anchor Bay DVD until something better comes out....

I think this only serves me for being anamorphic and for the cool extras.
If only Anchor Bay realeased this in a new edition the story would be different.

Thanks for providing them. I wasn't really sure I was going to buy this anyway since I'm all about Blu-ray these days and the idea of replacing a DVD with another DVD just seems wasteful. Now, I'm certain I'll be skipping it.

Well wow that sucks. I dunno, I think it has something to do with Code Red's mastering. A lot of their DVDs, from what I can recall, seem very soft.

I wonder if this will look any better upscaled.

I had high hopes about this one, getting a new HD master and all.
Code Red really dropped the ball with this one giving us worse quality instead of an upgrade.

Glad I saw the screenshots before I bought it or I would have been furious

Trust me, it will look even worse.
I have a couple of DVD:s with crap transfers like this, and upscaling it to 720 or 1080p is like watching a turd with a magnifying glass

Wow, some of those screenshots from the Code Red DVD look truly crappy compared to the old AB transfer...especially since this is supposed to be from an HD master. Is the new DVD Interlaced by any chance? I see some troublesome combing and artifacting. The recent Night Child DVD from Code Red was Interlaced for some odd reason.

I'll wait to judge when I have the actual DVD in my hands, but I'm glad now that I've hung on to the old Anchor Bay DVD.

This reminds me of when VCI "upgraded" Blood and Black Lace.

Wow, I wanted to get this but those screen-shots look terrible. What's with the colour change?

If you have PowerDVD, you can check by playing the film/DVD and then right-clicking and opening the "Information" tab. It'll list the technical aspects of the disc there.

The old Anchor Bay DVD was non-anamorphic, but it was Progressive-encoded.

Wow - color timing looks way off - similar to what was done with the Halloween transfers after the Cundey-approved one. The bluish tint really is crucial to the look of this film. However, I love the film and will probably pick it up for the extras and to support Code Red.

Some clarification, unlike previous DVD's where we used a place that also has Shout Factory as a client, I did not have my usual authoring house author this, this DVD was produced by the Producer of MADMAN, Gary Sales, who not only produced all the extras, but also over saw the authoring process at Duart. I do not know why it looks like this, as according to Gary, this was the exact same HD master that is being used on cable channels. I did not have "hands on" approach on this project at all, so did not see the master after the fact, and did not have the Anchor Bay disc to compare it with. I will contact Gary Sales right now to find out the issues, as I instructed Duart to make sure this was to be progressively scanned, and Sales had to have told them numerous times when he over saw the project. Again, my usual authoring house did not do this title.
