    Has anyone else here on the forum bought a copy of Artisan's Waxwork/Waxwork II: Lost in Time DVD? For some reason, the Waxwork transfer on the release shakes throughout the entire film. Not all over the place shakes, but unwatchable "quaking" where it rocks back and forth slightly, quickly and constantly.

    It gives me a headache and I'm really disappointed because these films are some of my favorite b-movies. I've seen problems like this on some WB discs (first several minutes of Demolition Man, first 20 of Creepshow), but never this bad. Has anyone else had this problem? Is there anything I can do about it? I bet the rest of them are just like this, so I didn't bother returning it. Any ideas? Thanks.

    This sounds like gate wobble in the transfer, and no, there isn't anything you can do about it short of retransfering the film.
