    Anchor Bay reissued the movie last month. Can somebody please comment on the (new?) transfer? (I think it's anamorphic)

    Is it any different from the old disk?

    Thanks!

    I haven't seen it, but it looks like they may have just removed the full screen version (it was a 2-sided disk).
    No mention of the full-screen here: http://www.anchorbayentertainment.co...sp?sku=DV12313
    Also, the insert is slightly different than the original (a couple more pages)

    Someone tell me this baby is anamorphic! That's the only reason I haven't picked up the original release.

    Same disc, just that it has no pan & scan version. So yes, it's still non-anamorphic.

    Amazon's been wrong before, but they do indicate this one's anamorphic...

    (and also that Anchor Bay released a separate pan-n-scan disk at the same time)

    The new one is better in that it's only $14.99 SRP. [​IMG]
