    Can anyone tell me what's the point of saying you are releasing a new DVD of Prince of Darkness only to include the exact same picture and 2.0 sound quality?

    I heard they added a trailer, but why the hell go through the trouble of re-releasing if they aren't going to do anything? I was pretty excited when I heard they were going to release a new version. The old one is good, but could have been improved on in sooooo many ways!

    Wow, this urks me[​IMG]

    Damn, you mean the "new" release is still non-anamorphic?

    The point is just that the old version is out of print. I'd like an SE, but I'll settle for this since I don't have to pay 50+ for it on eBay like the old Image release.

    Whoops, I should've checked my Image edition before posting. As Paul notes, that DVD is anamorphic. I guess that's one less disc I need to buy next week.

    If you want a decent disc of "Prince of Darkness", you should look over to Region 2. The german/british release is anamorphic and has a John Carpenter audio commentary on it. And it is cheap too boot. [​IMG]

    Universal doesn't care. They licensed all those movies to Image for a while. The license expired. All the Image distributed movies went OOP and commanded hefty prices on E-Bay. Now, universal is just releasing the same ol transfers.

    I mean, that's a pisser. I was hoping the would at least release the Euro versions with the commentary of They Live.

    Unless my memory completely betrays me (and it does - a lot!), John Carpenter and Universal aren´t exactly on friendly terms as of now.

    Well, if Carpenter isn't on good terms with Universal, I guess that doesn't suprise me. Give this release some meat!![​IMG]
