UK Studiocanal version has higher video bitrate & LPCM HD audio
21 February 2014
Excerpt: UK Studiocanal version region B locked has video bitrate of about 30 Mbps vs 20 for Millennium, and LPCM HD audio. Video print is in very good shape with few marks or imperfections. Strong colors throughout. Appears DNR'd. Without it, 4.0 or a bit higher. Nice PQ despite DNR.
Excerpt: This is a definite improvement over the Anchor Bay DVD release which wasn't even anamorphic. If you are looking to replace that disc, or buying for the first time, I think you will be satisfied with this presentation.
Excerpt: The movie itself is a great Hammer studios horror films. Anyone purchasing this blu ray likely knows what sort of movie they are in for -- great sets, eerie atmosphere, and interesting characters (Father Sandor). The video is pretty good.
Excerpt: i saw this movie in theater maybe 40 years before and i watched it again and again in video and in dvd and now in bluray 1) this is the unrated version 2) the picture is astonishing very colourful and nearly no flaw 3) the mono sound is very good but i should prefer a surround sound 4) the movie...
Conclusion: Brilliant film, we all know the story by now. Unfortunately, it just doesn't cut the mustard when it comes to the transfer. Maybe i was hoping for too much. But the sound is still only in a basic 2.0 format, and the image is still very grainy, and to be frank, i dont see much difference.
