Hi all.

I did a search of this forum, and I did not see a topic regarding whether or not a Child's Play DVD existed in another region (i.e. a region other than R1), which is either widescreen or anamorphic widescreen.

I have a region free DVD player that does PAL/NTSC conversion, so if someone knows of a region that meets the above requirements for this DVD, I would love to know which one it is.

Thanks a lot.

Australian R4 is 1.85:1 non-anamorphic sorry, this version is also included in "The Chucky Collection" Boxed Set.

Not available 16:9 yet, most R2 DVD's include the same non-anamorphic transfer.

And it should also be noted that the PQ on the R4 is abysmal. You're better off zooming the R1 than buying the R4. (Not that you were gonna anyway, but y'know...)

Guys,

Thanks a lot. I appreciate the info. *Sigh* Looks like I am resolved to wait for a suitable anamorphic release of this film. Patience is so not my strong suit. Posted Image

Thanks again.
