day of the dead has a feature length making of extra which is fantastic and watching prince of darkness on blu-ray really pulls you into the film like never before.

Off to give Norman Bates a spin now

I've read that the PQ on Day of the Dead isn't too much of an improvement over the Arrow Video release which is a shame cos I didn't think it'd be too hard to drastically improve on. Could you give me your honest opinion Sam?

Its more grainy than the Arrow print as its not been hit with dnr and there appears to be a little more detail in some scenes but its not a revelation or anything like that

For me the best thing on the disc is the making of feature which is around 80 mins long and interviews nearly everyone and even has the actors redoing their best lines. The documentary is outstanding and a great insight into the making of the film.

There is also a fair bit of behind the scenes footage from Tom Savinis archives

Overall I'm happy with it and prefer it over the Arrow disc and I do think it looks better but on transfer alone, as good as it is, it's not shockingly better.
