Hi I was wondering if any fellow forum members would be able to source one of these for me with a mint slip?

I can either pay cash or can return the favour by sending some UK titles if that is what you would prefer.

Thanks in advance

Anthony

I had a lot of fun revisiting Prince of Darkness last night by way of this Scream Factory Blu-ray.

Prince of Darkness looks quite good to me on this transfer. There are a lot of comments about artificial sharpening, but the movie has always had this uncannily sharp look to my eyes. I saw it at the theater back in 1987, when I hung out with a bunch of metalhead high school friends who wore their Slayer - Reign In Blood T-shirts all over the place, and I saw it on VHS about a million times. The colors are better on this disc, of course. The green ooze in the church looks brilliant, and otherworldly look of the people in its thrall comes across well.

Watching this movie brought back a flood of memories from my days of hanging out with the head-banging metal crowd during those teen years. I'm glad that it still holds up today, and I can probably attribute a lot of that to the fact that I enjoy stories that mix science and religion.

I really enjoyed the commentary track with John Carpenter and Peter Jason. John Carpenter's new interview is engaging, even if he comes across as being overly bitter about the state of contemporary horror (I'd take his bitterness more seriously if his own movies from the past two decades had been better.). The Alice Cooper interview was the highlight of the supplements for me, though. I wish that an interview with Anne Marie Howard (radiologist, glasses) had been included, because I'd like to have known what she thought of that comic relief aspect of the movie.

To the slipcover crowd...

My local Movie Stop had Prince of Darkness with a perfect-condition slipcover. If there is a Movie Stop near you, then give it a shot.

Hey,

Just wondering if anyone has checked out the recent Japanese blu-ray of PRINCE OF DARKNESS?

http://www.amazon.co.jp/パラダむ...ce+of+darkness

Apparently, it comes with a trailer and two radio spots, and there seems to be a pretty cool booklet as well. Considering it was released by Studio Cannal (note: POD was released on DVD by Pioneer once upon a time), I wonder why (based on observations) it didn't have the audio commentary or even the other special features from the French DVD.

Actually, it was Image Entertainment.

I was speaking about the Japanese DVD release. But you are correct, Image was the first company to release PRINCE OF DARKNESS in America.

Sorry, I didn't realize you meant the Japanese DVD release.

One thing to note about the Image DVDs of They Live and Prince of Darkness: They both have an aspect ratio of 2.40:1, and show more picture on the sides than the Universal DVDs and Shout blu-rays, which are slightly cropped to 2.35:1.

Maybe you're not in the correct mood to watch it. I get like that sometimes. Horror is a genre that you really have to be in the mood for. That's a really nice kitty-cat in your avatar!

I dearly love this movie. Saw it in the theater when I was 12, and the final jump-scare was extremely effective.

Again, has anyone seen the German or Japanese blu-rays for POD and can comment on them?
