My copy shipped yesterday, together with Basket Case. I hope Something Weird keep releasing blu's, they have a massive catalogue of all sorts of wonderful exploitation movies.

I hope the films don't the famous SW burned in on the bottom right of the films when you watch them.

I have a couple of SW dvd's that do just that, one is called the Something Wierd Sampler, and other is called "Axe!"(the 2nd film: called The Electric chair has that dreaded SW on the bottom for the whole damn film!)

As I posted in the BASKET CASE thread, and in the case of the BLOOD TRILOGY disc, there's no SWV bug in the features. The only time they've used the bug was for VHS, trailers occasionally, and their DVD-rs.

I'm very happy with the disc. BLOOD FEAST fairs the best (pretty significantly, in fact), TWO THOUSAND MANIACS looks much better but the print is not as crisp or colorful as the other two, and COLOR ME BLOOD RED looks good too (second best). Extras appear to be the same format (480p or i, not sure which since my player is set to 1080p for everything).

I first saw BLOOD FEAST on vhs, back in junior high I think. Fuad's eyes got me then and it became one of my faves. I think it's obscene to have it in HD and I'm so happy for it! A real treat for cult movie fans.

Anyone know if this is region free? I wrote to SW asking the same question but they didn't seem to know what I was on about.

I think it's been reported as region A, but I'm not 100% sure. I don't think my player can tell me that info (I suppose I could set it for rB and find out...).

Watched the Blood Feast trailer and decided to blind buy this. It seems like the kind of movie I'd really enjoy, and 3 for $12 is worth the risk. The trailer seemed entertaining enough. It should arrive tomorrow

I got to watch the disc yesterday. Of the three movies, Blood Feast does indeed look the best, although Color Me Blood Red isn't too far behind. There's no DNR or EE to be found. Two Thousand Maniacs has quite a bit of print damage and the colors look faded...has a grindhouse look and feel to it, so some people may find a certain charm in that one just for the presentation. All 3 movies are in 1.78:1, although the titles and credits on the last two movies are in 1.66:1 for some reason. All 3 movies were fun to watch. If you like gore and exploitation films, you'll enjoy the Blood Trilogy. Also, there's no burned-in logo or anything, so no worries there. It's locked to Region A, though.

Thanks for region info. Very disappointed to hear that as I would've loved to own a copy.

Blacks are washed out, seemingly set to IRE 7.5 (analog NTSC black) instead of IRE 0 ("digital" black for video)... not a deal breaker, but really strange to see none the less. The bitrates are also a bit low (17 Mb/s) and it leaves the grain looking a bit 'patchy', if you follow - it certainly doesn't look terrible, but I wouldn't be surprised if having split the films across 2 discs would have made it even better.

The aspect ratio going to 16:9 is weird, to say the least, but overall I'm quite happy with the discs. Color reproduction and detail on Blood Feast was better than I could have ever asked for. The disc has some really odd, relatively minor issues, but I doubt they'll ever look any better.

HG has said that they were meant to be projected at 1.78:1. Although, I did find it odd that the titles for TWO THOUSAND MANIACS are at 1.66.
