Do we have a UK release thread? No, seriously.

Yes, but no one ever seemed to post in it except me, so I decided to put my post here instead. I'm assuming House of Wax will get a U.S. release as well, hence my posting the info. I can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not - is it really such a big deal?

The Search for One-eye Jimmy! Boy, that really takes me back. It never even got a DVD release.

They made a sequel to the Hills Have Eyes (not the remake)? Woah.

A very harold and Kumar Christmas is coming out 2/7. http://www.digitalbits.com/#mytwocents Kind of surprising, I thought it would have been held until next Christmas for release.

Who's releasing those? I hope they're not PD-level discs like The Terror and Dementia 13.

May be worth noting that Zaat is also known as Blood Waters of Dr. Z of MST3K infamy.

The Stranger and Kansas City Confidential have been out separately for awhile. The consensus of what I've read is that the transfers are pretty terrible and loaded with DNR.

Re: Blu-ray release announcements - Part IV

I've read the opposite. I read that The Stranger was the weak one and Kansas City Confidential, The Terror, and Dementia 13 were, while not 5-star great, decent for the price and better-looking than their PD DVD counterparts. (Slightly off topic, but has there ever been a decent release of The Terror?)

I haven't researched The Terror or Dementia 13, but there's an MGM DVD of KC Confidential available for $4 on amazon right now that might be the best available presentation of the film.

DVD Beaver seem to have problematic screencaps at times, so I don't use them as gospel, but they can be useful for assessing the relative merits of releases. For this film, the BD does appear better than the PD DVDs, but still seems very smeary and lacking in detail, not very filmlike at all. The MGM DVD, despite the lower resolution, looks more pleasing overall.

Again, grain of salt and of course your personal preferences may vary.

Fantastic news about this classic film. Now Paramount, while we're on the subject of Polanski, can you do something for Rosemary's Baby as well? Thanks!
