I'm guessing the good authority is fellow countryman Calum, I'll take that as Gospel then

Similarly my nan and auntie and everyone else on my dad's side loved a good horror movie! Watched many a film over my auntie's house with my cousin from early teens onwards: Salems Lot, The Dentist, Thinner, Dr. Giggles, Friday 13th films, Cujo and Nightmare on elm street 4-6 are a few I first saw there... Good times

Looking forward to this release so much. It's the first "nasty" that I ever saw and I'm a huge fan of all Arrow has done so it's a good year for me! On a side note, today I discovered that my housemate had taken my pre-cert strong uncut VHS edition and framed it for me, something I have always wanted done. Here's a pic : (Edit : I dont know how to resize the image, could one of the mods do it for me?)

That is very cool. An unusual thing to have framed. But then again, I've seen laserdisc jackets framed, so maybe not so unusual after all.

In reply to Prince Vajda


You're confusing dirt and scratches of the print with film grain. They've got NOTHING to do with each other.

Entirely possible,it was late. I stand corrected

One of the prime examples why you should leave film grain alone and why you shouldn't mess around with DNR. The faces are all waxy and have no details at all, and the djungle looks like CGI. One of the most horrible Blu-rays ever.

Not having seen them I can't say either way,however the screen caps for GBU did show a nasty difference.



Film grain = fault and limitation? Back to film school, mate!

I still stand by this it is a fault and limitation of the process.Now if the director wants a certain grainy look he chooses a certain film stock,if he wants a less grainy look he chooses another and works with the DoP to get that effect.I may not of explained it properly to begin with (or now for that matter). Never went to film school can you tell



There's almost no 'invisible' CGI. In 97 out of 100 cases you can easily tell CGI from traditional effects - it's only a question of how well they are made. If they are really well-made, you'll still see it's CGI, but it won't bother you, because it looks good.


I'm sure they said the same about matte paintings way back
You can tell traditional effects on badly made films just as much.
The point I was trying to make was,maybe I'm naive,unless a "background effect" such as buildings,sky etc is done badly,traditional or cgi,then I don't notice it at all.

Thats not to say that a badly made model thats badly lit or badly detailed and rendered cgi model don't smack you across the face


No harm no foul.
