Glad to hear this is a nice upgrade. I have the Mill Creek blu but hadn't got to watch it yet. The last time I watched this film was the old DVD. Looking forward to hopefully including this in my Scary Movie marathon next month.

I recently watched this for the first time on the double-bill disc with The Puppet Masters and enjoyed the film. I do have to take issue with your criticism of Kevin O’Conner. As I’m watching the film, I was bothered a little by him because I kept wondering why he was familiar and then I remembered he’s Benny from The Mummy. I enjoyed him in that film and thought it was a mistake to kill off the character and I missed him in the sequels.

Anyway, I thought he was fine in this film. Considering all the extras, looks like I have to buy this release too.
