I'd think they likely share the same scan, though audio is LPCM for Imprint, DTS-HDMA for SF... Personally, I chose the Imprint over the SF because of the extra bonus material.

Thanks for the heads up, Jack! I finally grabbed this and The Gift, along with the Coming to America steelbook I kept debating on getting.

I actually found a review of the Imprint release and the PQ section was quite harsh citing some bad DNR. I was planning on skipping it despite the great price.

I didn't see any evidence of DNR, and if there is, it wouldn't have been applied by Imprint. They use what they're given. I'd be looking at SF or elsewhere if there's DNR. There were those who suggested there was DNR on the SF edition, but of course they based that on screenshots which is, in my opinion, ridiculous until it is seen in motion. It's only ever gonna look so good anyway, as it was a very low budget flick and looks it, just as it did when I saw it on TV a couple of times back in the 70's. As in, pretty grainy... So weighing it all up to answer the original question, the Imprint is still the better option. I'd think the same scan as the SF, but with more extras.

UPDATE: I've just read elsewhere that both the Imprint & SF editions are identical scans. The general consensus is that it wasn't given a new scan by SF or anyone anywhere else and based on my viewing of the Imprint, I can believe it. There's the odd soft shot, but overall it looks fine especially given its age, budget, etc, and there's generally plenty of detail.

Imprint are known for messing up the compression. So I would go the save route and buy the SF. Their compression often is not top notch either but from the comparisons I have seen it is still better than what Imprint have delivered so far.

I ordered it on day one of the sale, then they cancelled it a week later and now its back to regular price. So unfair.
