    According to DVD File, Fox is going to be releasing Dog Soldiers on 12/16.

    Is this a reissue of the previous DVD, or what? Artisan had the rights before, so I'm curious about this new release.

    Looks like a re-release of the other disk. Probably same transfer and new packaging. Although I hope not, because I love that movie and was hoping it would get at least a better audio mix. At least it's cheap. [​IMG]

    That's weird. That's only about a year after Artisan published it.

    I thought the transfer was horrible and it's the main reason I never bought the previous release.

    I am only watching on a 27inch screen, so the transfer didn't look terrible to me. Didn't look good, but not bad enough to turn me away from a good movie. Like I said, at least it is cheap now.

    I watched it on a 58-inch widescreen/HTPC combo--lots of artifacting and dull colors.

    Maybe it's not the same transfer?

    So how good is the movie itself?

    I re-screened this movie last weekend and I enjoyed it just as much as when I first bought the DVD. The movie itself is very interesting in that it really isn't what I personally expected. I was delighted to find that it quickly evolves into a "seige" type movie involving werewolves. This was actually a blind buy for me at BlockBuster, as it was only $10.00. Along with "The Howling SE" and "An American Werewolf in London", this is one of my favorites in the genre. The faces of the werewolves are pretty well done with more true "dog-like" features than I have previously seen. The PQ on my 36" Panny is excellent although the movie is shot quite "darkly." DD5.1 sound is good, although for all the shooting in the movie I never noticed a good bullet "ricochet" effect; good subwoofer effects though.
