I’m a huge Val Lewton fan.
There’s never been anyone quite like him for intelligent, atmospheric horror.
Scream Factory’s new Blu-ray of Robert Wise’s (his second film in the series, after The Curse of the Cat People) 1945 The Body Snatcher, has everything going for it.
And one very important addition.
From time immemorial – that’s way before the Bible, or wine…
This is a film that’s always been derived from fourth generation material on home video.
For their new release, Scream has worked with WB, to access the original camera negative, and the final result is a revelation.
Resolution, blacks, grays, shadow detail, grain structure – can’t be improved.
An absolute must for any serious collection.
