The German Blind Dead discs are either upscaled or simply 480i on bds. Not sure which.

Are you certain it's not upscaled from digibeta? Because this picture seems to tell a different story. What's interesting about Echo Bridge is that Miramax has indeed released HD-versions of most of these movies on demand, Children of the Corn 6 for example looks great on iTunes but is completely brown and murky on the Echo Bridge blu-ray. Tale of the Mummy is clearly an upscale on Blu-Ray but is crystal clear HD on iTunes, albeit in 1.78:1 instead of 2.35:1. I'm not sure that Echo Bridge has actually utilized the HD-transfers available to them. Look at this picture and tell me this is actual HD (look at the glow on the trees)

I am a professional reviewer. It's an upscale.

Keep in mind, this is Echo Bridge we're talking about, so there could very well be multiple versions of the "Prophecy" discs and transfers roaming around.

This is the one I have, but who knows how that differs from the other "Prophecy" movie releases.

The Taiwan release of Inside (└ l'intÚrieur) is an upscale. In fact, I'm tempted to call it a downscale, as the screen caps I've seen from it actually look worse than the US DVD release!

To be fair most movies on this upscaled list look worse on blu-ray than they did on DVD.

Is there a review and or screencaps of the BIG BAD WOLF disc somewhere. I'd like to own the best copy of this film available. Even if the French BD is an upscale I still would like to own it, if it is better than the DVD.
