With Dario Argento being one of my favorite filmmakers, there was no possible way to pass on the first high definition release. I watched the disc over the weekend and was taken aback by how grainy it was. Now, I'm not someone who wants OR needs every Blu-ray to "POP." It's just that I've never seen more thick or noisy film grain in my life. It's in every frame and, being as it's so very noisy, I'd be lying if I didn't admit it was distracting. I compared the transfer to the 2 disc, Blue Underground DVD from a few years back and the Blu-ray DOES offer more detail. It's interesting to see that the standard disc seems to be without much of the film grain but, of course, there's just not a lot of detail there, either. I'm guessing this particular release is so good that it's revealing problems or issues that go back to the way in which this was filmed. But I'm really curious to know if I'm the only one that was caught off guard by this one.
