View Full Version : American werewolf in londan coming to bluray
Aug 24, '08, 5:51 PM
john landis has put word out that we'll see it early next year. Is this to coinside with the new wolf man movie coming out.... Who knows. Landis has said the cast reunited for the DVD, just like the cast from goonies did. Rumors are starting about possible extra content. A scene mentioned is when the three hobos are killed.... Apparently it was cut for being too gory.,.. We may finally get to see it. Personally, I hope the transfer gets the five star treatment like blade runner did..., the first 5 minutes of the hd amil was still grainy and junkie.

Great film and Landis' best work. It deserves the best transfer possible, so you can freeze frame the werewolf, stare into his hate-filled eyes, and give yourself nightmares. :terror:

This is one of my fav horror movies.
Best line ever "Come on man just kill yourself!"

I wouldn't go into it with expectations too high though. The HD DVD looked better than the standard DVD, with more vibrant colour and somewhat better detail, but realistically this is a older, rather low budget film that has always looked kind of soft and grainy, so I don't think the Blu-ray will be a revelation. There is only so much that can be done, if this is what the original film elements look like. This is assuming that the Blu-ray will be a straight port of the HD DVD, but who knows, maybe they will go back and try to tweak it a bit more (and the HD DVD release was a single layer disc, 15 GB, so maybe the extra breathing room on a larger capacity BD could possibly help too)
