I have the original Blu-ray that was released years ago. I pre-ordered this in the hopes of getting something that I did NOT get. But it wasn't a complete loss...
The obvious bad news, that I'm sure anyone who was excited for this already knows, is that there is no extended or director's cut here. Nor any signs of new footage. The "extended and deleted scenes" are simply the regurgitated 3 scenes from the previous release.
Sadly, MOST of special features are from the previous blu-ray.
That's the bad news.
The semi-good news is that the interviews are all new. Unfortunately there is no sign of Sam Neil or Laurence Fishburne, but there is some interesting bits here and there. All in all, they amount to about a little over an hour, and even with the interesting bits, sadly, they can still be skipped.
And the good, actually great, news is the movie itself....
The 4K transfer is leagues above the previous release. To me, the movie actually had a completely different feel to it, as the improvement was that noticeable. Much sharper, and, surprisingly much more colorful, where you actually notice all the colors in this otherwise dark movie. It IS worth the upgrade for this transfer alone...
And the movie comes with a slip cover.
However, while the transfer is worth the upgrade, and a must own for the fans of the movie, I would still suggest waiting until the price drops. Shout has good sales every once in a while, and their movies do drop in price eventually.
I would wait until this one at least dropped below the $19.99 mark.
