Quality of Rabid: SE?

I've been looking for a review of the new special edition of Cronenberg's Rabid, but haven't found anything but ones for an older (and apparently awful) edition. Anyone know about the quality, or if it's even widescreen this time?

I picked this up yesterday, and it is letterboxed full screen. Doesn't look too shabby though, definately watchable. I'm guessing its the same transfer used on the oop release. $14.99 at Best Buy, though!

Very Confused

I believe he means it's letterboxed but isn't 16x9-enhanced.

You've got it! Thank you for decoding my cryptic post. I didn't realize not everyone here had experience decoding ancient runes.

Are you sure you shouldn't be over in the Flirting With Disaster thread?

Hey Noel, I had read that "Rabid" has a non-anamorphic transfer. Is it indeed enhanced for widescreen?

Nope. I'd note it as "1.77:1 anam" if it were.
