Just picked up John Carpenter's Prince Of Darkness for only 1.25 at my local preowned DVD shop. Haven't seen it yet but heard good things. I know it's split people down the middle as it's been slated a lot too but I thought for that price I can't go wrong really. Checked on Amazon and the cheapest preowned price is around 9. A bargain and a half! :dance:

That is a bargain Ant! Been looking for it for ages .. didn't know it was available outside the Carpenter box set! It isn't great, but does have great atmosphere. Good production and acting too. I'll take it off your hands if ya don't like it Ant.

Hey that's up there with Carpenter's best films if you ask me... A film which truly deserves the ARROW treatment. Great bargain Ant!

Love Prince Of Darkness. The Fog and POD are imo, Carpenter's scariest films.

I just won this HKL dvd of Game Of Death on ebay. :)

Oooh I have just won The Gate R1 (Montrous Edition) on ebay too.

:clap:

Thanks for the feedback -- I'll hold off buying it until I see it first.

Just bought this (thought about getting the ABUS MANIAC tin for 30 on amazon.com (to complete my collection) but decided to opt for the BD for half the price :p)...

I haven't been through any of the extra features on my copy yet, but was distinctly underwhelmed by the picture quality which had low contrast levels, some heavy grain and pretty poor definition. I haven't seen it on DVD so don't know whether it's an improvement or about the same as the SD picture.

reviews say it does look better then the DVD from BU.
:)
Its not the best image and is far worse then BU's NYR blu but I think its more of a source issue then anything else. Grain is good however.
