Generally, a high bitrate indicates a better picture than a low bitrate, but that doesn't take into account things like colour/contrast balancing, DNR and things like that.

The VCI blu of White Zombie was initially encoded with a bitrate of about 10Mbps when it should have been 35 and is on the corrected discs. While the lower bitrate actually looks pretty good j can't help wondering what I'm missing out on.
That said I've never seen the film anyway so I can't compare it any of the dvd versions out there?

If you can see the picture than its better than the dvd :lol:

Well given I've got the first print with the low bit rate Nord I think it looks purty good, so I'd recommend it if you're a fan (which I know you are).
If bastard crapatalk worked I'd put some pictures up.

I have done some research and the Kino release seems to be the better of the two so i might go with that one. I hope the faults with the disc are not goning to ruin your first viewing of the film.
