@confusedcrystal I totally get you, it's just the desire to own it haha

I'm all for bidding but I'm also cautious when it comes to spending a lump sum of cash on a BluRay that doesn't look all that great. I want it, but maybe not 60-want it
Yes it's me in the avatar :)

And it only costs two dollars more. in fact I am throwing a two dollar walmart card with each auction as well just so the winner can really enjoy this movie in HD.

Sometimes when I come home stressed from work and cant decide what zombie game I want to play, I just login to vudu and watch NOTLD
It's only $7.88 on VUDU for the HDX, guess it's worth that, right?

I just bought this with Vudu credits, and yes it is worth it. Looks so much better than the BD.
"The Minneapolis Lakers moved to Los Angeles where there are no lakes. The Oilers moved to Tennessee were there is no oil. The Jazz moved to Salt Lake City where they don't allow music. The Oakland Raiders moved to L.A. and then back to Oakland; no one in Los Angeles seemed to notice. Continued expansion diluted the talent pool, forcing owners to recruit heavily from prisons, mental institutions, and Texas."

Eventually. Maybe.

It doesn't seem Mill Creek is particularly active with the Sony titles they have access to. I don't think that deal worked out the way alot of poeple hoped (just a bunch of ill conceived double features that never made much sense). Maybe they will slap this in a double feature with some other random horror film, but I wouldn't even count on that.

Maybe if it's the same transfer they can double feature it with something with blue in the title...like Into the Blue.

Finally sat down to watch my DVD copy of this last night. Since I love the original, I wanted to like this I really did...but I thought this was for the most part...shit.

The original version of this film from 1968 totally owns this remake. Really some of the zombie makeup effects were the only neat thing about this film, not that it needed to be remade anyways. Plus since this was directed by Tom Savini, I figured there'd be a lot more gore. Plus the character of Barbara was ruined in this remake IMO. Her original character portrayal as being rendered almost catatonic from fear for 80% of the film worked a lot better than her being this Rambo-esque zombie slayer in the remake.

I can't help but have mixed feelings for the remake. On one hand, as you say, it absolutely pales in comparison to the original. But most of the performances are decent, and the changes made to the characters and the story are significant enough to carve out a place for the remake on its own terms. Sorta.

In fact, I don't mind the strength of Barbara's character in this. Tallman carries it off nicely, and I don't think she's particularly Rambo-esque. She doesn't even have a catchphrase.

But damn, that girl who played Poppy on Frasier does some of the shrillest, most annoying screaming in film history in this movie.

Ultimately, everything is relative in zombie cinema; in the years since, we've had plenty of trash that makes NOTLD 90 look like a slam-dunk masterpiece.

Very true.

And I know Barbara doesn't have a catchphrase. When I described her character in the '90 remake as being Rambo-esque I just meant she seems to have a mentality of wanting to take on the hordes zombies by herself, plus she was very trigger happy with a pretty deadly shot.

Was one of the zombies that she shot while outside at night supposed to be Johnny though?? I could have sworn I saw her take out a zombified version of him with the messed up glasses and all.

I believe you're right -- as I recall Johnny does show up again.

She takes out the zombie that kills Johnny. But Johnny does appear again as a dead zombie in the back of a pick up truck near the end when the rednecks find her.
